Near the head of Pont Pill, on the southern bank, stands this fine old farmhouse, which for many years was a busy quayside pub called the Ship. It has now been converted into two holiday cottages - the larger The Farm House, with attractive traditional features, and the sweet little hideaway of Mohun. Both cottages have lovely views of the creek and their own gardens and next to the cottages you'll also find another holiday cottage, Pont Creek Cottage. The picturesque tidal creek is great for watching local wildlife and enjoying the lapping water, in summer months the footpaths along the creek are also popular with local walkers, and the creek itself enjoyed by boaters.
Mohun is an ideal base from which to explore the coast and countryside. Start the Hall Walk from your doorstep taking in the villages of Polruan and Fowey using the two local ferries.
Fowey is a charming and bustling coastal town, and with plenty of shops, restaurants and pubs you will be spoiled for choice. The unspoilt beauty of the nearby beach at Lantic Bay awaits those who are willing to make the steep descent.
Children: Access to the creek is unfenced so children must be supervised whilst on the quayside.
Heating: Night storage heating and convector heating included.
Parking: There is a designated parking area raised above the quay next to the wooden garage and recycling area. Parking immediately outside the cottage or on the quay is not permitted and is inadvisable due to the occasional high tides.
Garden: There is a small garden opposite the door which is raised above the path.
Accessibility: The bedroom and bathroom are on the ground floor but the cottage is not suitable for wheelchair users.
Utilities: The fridge has a small ice box.
Telephone: There is limited mobile phone signal at this cottage.
Offers: Guests will benefit from a late Sunday checkout of 4pm at this cottage.
Cornwall may be steeped in Celtic history yet it also offers the uncomplicated joy of a day spent by the sea. From the picture-box charms of the villages and towns of St Ives, Polzeath and Port Isaac to the raw natural beauty of the coast, one trip to this part of the world is often just the start of many more. Remember to pack some good walking boots and you will be set for life!
