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 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 (the garden for the Farm House is wonderfully situated on top of the old limekiln behind the cottage). Pont Creek Cottage, a detached property is located just behind.
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.
The Farmhouse 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 youâ€™ll be set for life!
