About The Farm House, Pont Pill

A converted farmhouse, this character-packed cottage sits on the wooded banks near the head of a winding tidal creek.

With beautiful Pont Quay on your doorstep, The Farm House has a private outdoor dining spot with estuary views on top of the old lime kiln, and inside, there’s a similarly stunning view from the sitting room which also has a log burner perfect for chillier evenings.

On the southern bank of Pont Pill, The Farm House also served as a busy quayside pub called The Ship. Now converted to a comfortable holiday cottage, the honey-coloured house is full of attractive features and plenty of character from previous times. With three bedrooms upstairs, and sleeping five, the cottage is great for small groups of friends or family, and you can get everyone together round the farmhouse-style table in the kitchen.

Outdoor life at Pont Pill focusses on the quay which is perfect for wildlife spotting (look out for herons and kingfishers or set a crab line up from the footbridge). If getting active on the water is more your thing then you’ll see kayakers, paddle boarders and other small craft bobbing around. And should you already have a boat of your own, then you’re also welcome to launch from the private quay (max. 11 foot boat length). Walkers will also love Hall Walk enjoyed by ramblers taking in two ferry rides across the estuary.

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

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.
