Details

This section of the page features an image gallery, so if you're using a screen reader you may wish to jump to the main content.

Close to the Farm House, this simple stone building was once a stable with a loft above. You can still see the row of pigeon holes below its slate roof. Just metres from the water's edge, and with densely-wooded banks rising on either side, Pont Creek Cottage makes a cosy and enchanting base from which to explore the delights of the Fowey estuary. In summer months the footpaths along the creek are popular with local walkers, and the creek itself enjoyed by boaters.

Pont Creek cottage 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 with plenty of shops, restaurants, 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.

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!

    Impecable standards

    Everything is specialo about this place - have stayed a couple of times in the neighbouring property and wanted to enjoy the wonderful walks from the doorstep with just the 2 of us this time. It was better than we had hoped for and we had a really wonderful Christmas! We choose the Natioanl Trust for the unrivalled locations and impecable standards

    Lovely cottage in an idyllic location

    Lovely cottage in an idyllic location. My only complaint is that we didn't got for longer! Three nights just wasn't enough!

    We will be back at this time of year again.

    Our first experience of a NT cottage - we were delighted. Cottage spotless. We did lots of walking in the nice frosty mornings. Had lots of cream teas. The countryside is like Donejal, Northern Ireland, very beautiful. We will be back at this time of year again.

    Enchanting setting

    A comfortable well appointed cottage in an enchanting setting. Weather could have been better but managed three good coastal walks. Recommend to visit Pine Lodge Gardens, near St Austell, very worthwhile.
