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.

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 you will be set for life!

    Made enjoyable..

    Idyllic cottage in idyllic location. I loved hand feeding the ducks on the wall at the entrance to the cottage, regrettably did not see the Kingfisher! Perfect location for local walks and has some wonderful villages not only Polruan and Fowey but also Looe and Polperro not to far from the cottage. It was much appreciated the walking advise and local area map that was in the visitors book, we used both of these. Thank you for leaving one days supply of logs, we did nearly buy more but ended up in bed too early and too exhausted to really make use of more but the welcome tray, fresh flowers and made up fire I feel are the little extras that national trust cottages have over their rivals and many cheaper holiday.

    The location is idyllic and peaceful

    Just returned from a fabulous break in this beautiful cottage. The location is idyllic and peaceful with a small stream running along the front of the property and greenery all around. There are beautiful walks all around and, indeed, one running past the front of the cottage so you get to see a few friendly faces as well as the friendly ducks that would come into the house if you let them! Polruan is reached by a lovely hill walk and a passenger ferry connects you across to the busier town of Fowey in a few minutes for lovey restaurants and a cracking beach. The cottage has everything you could look for with a greatly kitted out kitchen and large lounge with roaring fireplace with large comfy sofas and chairs around it making it lovely and cosy when the weather was a bit miserable outside. First time in an NT cottage. Very impressed and would recommend it to others
