DOC Martin is back on our screens for its eighth series.
But where are the idyllic locations the hit ITV show uses? And can you stay there? We take a look…
Where is Doc Martin filmed?
This picturesque Cornish fishing village is where the show is mostly filmed.
It sets the scene for the show’s fictional village of Port Wenn.
Fans can stroll through the idyllic village and see lots of familiar locations like the pharmacy and Louisa’s old house.
One of the most recognisable locations is the surgery where Doc Martin lives and works.
It is Perched on Roscarrock Hill and sits overlooking the bay below.
The local school
Fans will know that Doc Martin’s wife Louisa is the headteacher at the local school.
What they might not know is that the school is in fact a hotel where you can stay, you can even get married there if you want.
The Old School Hotel is situated in Port Isaac.
The hotel is surrounded by the stunning coastline you see in the show, and is a favourite for walkers, swimmers and surfers.
The small village of Gunwalloe is home to the church where the funeral of Aunt Joan took place.
You can visit the location where the tear-jerking episode was shot.
The church of St. Winwaloe is the only church in Cornwall that is located on a beach.
Fans of Poldark will recognise the beach as the location where some of the show’s most dramatic scenes are shot.
Fans of Doc Martin will recognise Doyden Castle from where Mrs. Tishell revealed her crush to the Doctor in the final episode of series five.
The castle was built in 1830 and is surrounded by the beautiful Cornish coastline.
It was the perfect backdrop for the season finale.
St. Nonna’s Church
This church, set within the valley of Penpoint Water, features twice in the series.
It made it’s first appearance when the Doc was jilted at the altar by Louisa in season three.
The second occasion was when the doctor finally managed to get her to tie the knot.
