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.

The cottage's layout

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 will be set for life!

    Welcome tray with tea and coffee and Cornish fairings biscuits - laid out using Cornish ware china - very appropriate. Fresh flowers too. Good welcome/information pack and "just enough" books etc - Daphne du Maurier - again very appropriate. Walking maps within the pack (laminated) were excellent and very useful. Also the map on the wall made it easy to see where we had been and where we would like to go! Visitor book was very enjoyable - then we too saw the egret and heron.

    We have used many cottages over the years from some of the mainstream cottage rental companies and have always been disappointed in the cleanliness and upkeep of the properties. We were pleasantly surprised and pleased with the cleanliness and upkeep of the National Trust property that we rented. This is our most important indicator as to whether we would use a company again and this property passed in flying colours. The quality and comfort of the bed and bedding is also key and these were also excellent. The cottage was uncluttered but had sufficient facilities for a comfortable stay with good quality and again clean cooking utensils and crockery. This is the first time we have found a main stream company that rents cottages to the above standards and consequently we have already booked again and will be looking to make several bookings next year if this is the quality provided at all National Trust properties.
