About The Farm House, Pont Pill

On wooded banks of a tidal creek, this former quayside pub with open fireplace is a cosy retreat.

Sitting just metres from a winding tidal creek and nestling among its densely-wooded banks, you’ll be in your own patch of harmony when you stay in this creek-side cottage. 

It’s a former quayside pub that’s been restored into a homely three-bedroom nest.  Open wooden beams, an impressive open fireplace and a garden that sits atop the limekiln overlooking the winding creek, add to its cosy Cornish feel. 

From here you can follow footpaths along the river to pretty fishing village, Polruan or sandy beach, 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.
