About Mohun

A cottage just metres from a winding tidal creek, nestling among its densely-wooded banks.

Starting life as a farmhouse and later evolving into a quayside pub called The Ship, you’ll be part of Mohun’s electric history when you stay here. Adjoining Mohun is The Farm House and next door is Pont Creek Cottage.

It’s an enchanting place to stay with the calm estuary running past the cottage and the surrounding woods silencing any sound pollution. Step inside to find a cosy one-bedroom hideaway with an open-plan kitchen, dining and living area. You’ll have your own small garden or there is plenty of space to sit out on the quayside.

From here you can follow footpaths along the creek to the pretty fishing village of Polruan or the sandy beach at Lantic Bay. You could even explore the area by kayak or canoe and paddle to bustling coastal town, Fowey. A little further along the coast, discover Lansallos Cove. Once the haunt of smugglers and wreckers, this impressive cove can be reached by following a secretive sunken lane.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
