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.

Ground floor
hall, open-plan kitchen/dining/sitting room, double bedroom (with 5' bed), bathroom with shower over bath.

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’ll be set for life!

    Made particularly enjoyable by...

    The house was superb. So tranquil and peaceful. Helen had done a marvellous job in getting the property ready. Nice touches like fresh flowers, milk in the fridge and biscuits!

    What an incredible place

    What an incredible place - I'd forgotten what true peace and quiet was. The cottage is beautiful, spotless and well equipped. Totally reccomended.

  • Elizabeth Martin
    An idyllic and peaceful spot

    An idyllic and peaceful spot, and a comfortable and well-equipped cottage for two. Fantastic walks all around, and excellent birdwatching from the window: little egret, heron, plus assorted ducks and swans.

  • Craig and Lisa Holmes

    A stunning location, just perfect for a long weekend. We were totally charmed by this little gem and intend to return.
