The Mowhay - Cabin in Cornwall

Not suitable for children

Not suitable for pets

A huge terrace kitchen, a cosy bed pod and not a soul in sight. The sort of place you never want to leave...

The Mowhay is completely self service – you get the instructions, you head on down, let yourself in and then simply unwind in your own private slice of Cornwall. Over the course of many magical, idle holidays at The Mowhay, the owners have kitted out the living pod and the kitchen with everything you could possibly need. There is the king sized bed and its sumptuous duvet, the grill, hobs and bbq in the covered kitchen, a gas heated shower and flushing loo, as well as all the seating on the terrace and that essential accessory, a stone cherub. Even the most relaxed and self sufficient camper may occasionally feel the need to drag themselves away from this sanctuary. Luckily, there’s a great pub just up the hill. Like everything at The Mowhay, it’s on hand but not in the way.

PLEASE NOTE: As mentioned above, The Mowhay is self service and the owner will not be anywhere on site during your stay. Instructions for getting in and getting settled will be sent to you when you book.

Our guests say...

Overall, very good. The place itself is amazing and in stunning grounds. Very peaceful and relaxing.



just the most perfect place, secluded and private but not so far from the beaten path. weather was patchy but Saturday was dry and warm all day and we got to see the best of the Mowhay



A lovely stay in seclusion, great setting, great scenery, lovely accommodation, thoroughly enjoyed this relaxing break from humanity.



We headed to the Mohay in search of rest and relaxation and found both in abundance,the location was beautiful and our Pod was really cosy,everything we needed.



"Absolutely amazing! Perfect! Best holiday ever!"



"We adored our stay at The Mowhay. Offering surprisingly luxurious creature comforts (the bed is heaven sent and my partner fell more than a little in love with one of the leather arm chairs!), The Mowhay allows total detachment from reality. Whilst there, we didn't seen another soul. Access to a meadow, field, orchard and stretch of stream meant we were never bored and had plenty of land to explore as well as the pod itself. Isolated in beautiful rural surroundings, The Mowhay offers a truly relaxing escape that allowed us to recharge our batteries and pretend we were the only two people in the whole world. It truly is a wonderful place to be in love."



"The Mowhay is a delightful secret of a place, tucked down narrow country lanes. Greeted by rabbits, serenaded by nuthatches, sung to sleep by cicadas and surprised by small fish in the stream at the end of your very own meadow, it's about as perfect a country retreat can be. Best thing- all the hidden touches added by the owner, Jasper. Oh, and not seeing a soul throughout our stay! Worst- coming home."



"Very much so. The Mowhay was all we'd hoped for and more- an idyllic countryside retreat where we could be alone together among the wilderness, with rabbits, birds and bats for company. The cabin itself was beautifully done, very tastefully and thoughtfully equip with all of the essentials we needed in the kitchen and living area, and decorated in such a way that complemented the unspoilt location. The best thing was the blissful seclusion of the place and the fact that the whole area seemed to be entirely ours, with not a soul in sight. The worst thing was having to leave!"  



"We had a fabulous stay. It was a surprise for my husbands 50th and he absolutely loved my choice. It was quirky, romantic, remote and peaceful. The wood burner was a godsend as it was colder than expected for may. However the weather did not lessen our enjoyment of our time there. We would go back tomorrow if time and salary allowed."



"The Mowhay was very good and the pod where the bed was kept was very cosy especially with the log fire going. The bathroom was very cold as it did not get the sun throughout the day and the shower gave out a very small amount of luke warm water. The setting was idyllic and all the recommendations for eating out were brilliant."



"The Mowhay was lovely & in a beautiful setting, the surrounding area was peaceful and the local wildlife wonderful to watch.  The owners have done a wonderful job creating a little piece of paradise & all essentials had been thought about, as well as a few extras. The Mowhay looked particularly picturesque at night with the rope light, candles & warm glow from the woodburner."



"We went to The Mowhay to celebrate our wedding the weekend before. It was the perfect mini-moon! I have never seen such a beautiful place, the fairy lights, the outdoor kitchen, the indoor pod - everything about it was gorgeous. The weather was average and a little damp but this did not dampen our spirits in the slightest. We went for walks, played Boules, went to the lovely pub up the road and generally relaxed in this little slice of Cornwall heaven for three amazing days. I can't recommend it enough and would not hesitate to go back - already planning our next trip!"



"It was incredible!!! The design of the accommodation itself, the eco-friendly nature of it, the surroundings, the privacy, the supplies and amenities all made it one of the best parts of our honeymoon."



"We wanted a break from our children and a peaceful retreat to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. That's exactly what we got. A beautiful retreat that felt a million miles away from civilisation but was actually very close to amenities if needed. The pod was so cosy and the outdoor kitchen made the most of the outdoors without having to rough it too much."



"It was fantastic. An extremely relaxing and peaceful location, completely away from the world. It felt like being back in the dens I used to build in our garden when I was little! The best thing was the feeling of being outdoors but with a proper mattress to sleep on. We arrived late at night and were met by hooting owls, and we woke to find rabbits right outside the bedroom window. Perfect."



"The Mowhay was fantastic. It was everything we were looking for and the weather during our stay helped being the sunniest day of our holiday in Cornwall. The outdoor kitchen was equipped with everything we needed, the surrounding area was stunning, and the pod was well thought out with radio, games and a comfy bed. We loved it!"
