About Mohun

A cosy cottage just metres from a winding Cornish tidal creek surrounded by woods.

You’ll find charming Mohun tucked away in an idyllic setting behind the adjoining Farm House and next to Pont Creek Cottage in the tiny hamlet of Pont Quay, just off the river Fowey. The tidal creek laps quietly outside and for walkers there are footpaths to pretty fishing villages and the sandy beach at Lantic Bay.

Mohun, pronounced ‘moon’, is named after a local land owner. Inside, this compact cottage is ideal for a couple and has everything you’ll need for a comfortable stay, with a gorgeous picture window in the kitchen/sitting room looking out across the creek. Outside the door, step up into your own garden with a picnic table, or take a chair or two to the quayside and simply relax by the water. Bird lovers can look out for kingfishers and herons too.

If you’re a water baby, you’ll find that the creek is the focus of any stay at Mohun. Pont was once an important river quay with barges sailing up from Fowey to unload their cargo and to take on board produce from the farms. Nowadays it’s a popular stop on Hall Walk, enjoyed by ramblers taking in two ferry rides across the estuary. It’s also used by kayakers, paddle boarders and other small craft. You’re also welcome to launch from this private quay if you have your own boat (max. 11 foot boat length).

Once you’ve had your fill of relaxing by (or on) the water, then the bustling town of Fowey is close, and can either be reached from Polruan by passenger ferry, or by car crossing at Bodinnick. Stop off for a bite to eat at any of the fantastic places on both sides of the river, along the coast and inland. If you’re craving beach life, then the glorious beaches around Lantic Bay are also nearby. Further afield enjoy the historic National Trust properties of Lanhydrock, Cotehele and Antony and discover the old fishing towns of Looe and Polperro.

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 through to 5 Acorns at the highest level. 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.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose, safe and clean. Running water and a WC are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities (details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage). Bedding, linen and towels are supplied (with a few exceptions, which is again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. Generally a 1 acorn cottage does not have wifi. Examples of a 1 acorn offer include Cartref, Wales and Rosedene, Worcestershire.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high sleeps to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 acorn cottages have wifi and, similar to a 1 Acorn cottage, the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic in their offer. All 2 (and higher) Acorn cottages supply bedding, linen and towels. Examples of a 2 acorn offer include Engine Cottage, Cornwall and High Hallgarth, Cumbria.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small sized kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage. Examples of a 3 acorn cottage include the Mustard Pot Cottage, Norfolk and Rose Cottage, Isle of Wight.

4 Acorn: these cottage have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally it is likely to have added comfort extras. The ratio of bathrooms to guests will be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers as opposed to over bath showers. Examples of a 4 Acorn offer include Portland House, Dorset and Stepper View, Cornwall.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage. This is the highest offer available. The furniture is of high standard, and has real comfort for modern living. Examples of a 5 Acorn cottage include The Old Rectory, South Wales and West Gate Lodge, Yorkshire.
