About Pont Creek Cottage

This charming dog-friendly cottage is just metres from a winding Cornish tidal creek and surrounded by woods.

Nestled by a densely-wooded bank, metres from the water’s edge, Pont Creek is an enchanting place to stay, perfect for walkers or water lovers. A former stable with a loft above, now converted to a two-bedroom cottage, if you look up you can still see the row of pigeon holes below the slate roof.

Sitting in a tiny hamlet with two other cottages, the Farm House and Mohun, Pont Creek lets you take life at a slower pace. Wake up to the sound of the stream, enjoy the sights, sounds and wildlife of the creek, and then curl up in front of the wood burning stove at the end of the day. Sleeping three, the cottage is ideal for small families or a small group of friends (and a dog). There’s a garden at the back of the cottage, but with the creek so close, we’re betting you’ll spend more time by the water.

As you relax by the quay, imagine Pont in its heyday as 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. The creek is 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).

After the calm of the creek has worked its magic, 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 the fantastic places that are found 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

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet 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 are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

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 kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
