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). 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.

Things to see and do nearby
- South West England
The South West region is probably England's most well-known holiday hotspot, being home to some of the most famous seaside resorts. Pretty villages and harbours in Cornwall, many with sweeping sandy beaches, such as St Ives, Polzeath and Port Isaac to name but a few, give way to sophisticated seaside resorts in Devon and Dorset which include Bournemouth, Torquay and Ilfracombe. The history of this region is unrivalled; Wiltshire's spectacular downland and the stone circles at Avebury and Stonehenge, through Hardy's Dorset, dramatic Dartmoor and gentler Exmoor, to the mining landscapes of Cornwall and West Devon, which are now recognised as being of international significance, having been awarded World Heritage Site status in 2006. The Trust protects 370 miles of the coastline in Devon and Cornwall and, wherever you are in the two far western counties, you're never more than 25 miles from the sea. As well as this peninsula, the Trust also cares for much of the countryside in Gloucestershire, Somerset, Wiltshire and Dorset and a wide array of fascinating properties to visit and explore. Not surprisingly, perhaps, this area is also home to the widest selection of National Trust holiday cottages.
- South Cornwall
In places rugged and remote, in others tranquil and picturesque, much of the south Cornwall coast is still surprisingly unspoilt, as many parts can only be reached along narrow lanes winding through lush farmland and woodland towards the sea. Either climbing down on foot or drifting along in a small boat, visitors can explore and enjoy the cliffs, coves, beaches and quaint fishing villages that are Daphne du Maurier Country. The Trust has a host of holiday cottages in this area that are wonderful away-from-it-all hideaways for families and friends. For instance, there is Bosloe; an imposing country house set in extensive grounds above the Helford River, divided into three spacious holiday homes and with a former gardenerâ€™s cottage, The Bothy, hidden in the gardens. Further on around the coast is the glorious Trelissick Garden with five delightful holiday homes on the estate and former officersâ€™ quarters on St Anthony Head now converted for holiday use.
