The Mowhay - Cabin in Cornwall, United Kingdom

Last cache: 09:31:02, Saturday 21 October 2017

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...

We have had an amazing stay at the Mowhay. We whiled away the hours watching the wildlife, reading and just relaxing.

Had an amazing time. Loved the peace and tranquil surroundings it was set in. Such a relaxing place to kick back, listening to the sounds of nature and then maybe a little dip in the river a the bottom of the garden. The kitchen had all you needed, and it's outdoor setting added to the sense of freedom and nature. There was a BBQ and gas rings available for cooking, and there was a decent pub 20 mins walk away if you fancied a treat. Nice little fire pit to sit around with a few glasses of wine and let all your worries drift away. The bed was lovely and comfy so a good nights sleep was had by all, ready for the next day of some hard core relaxing. Thoroughly recommended

A magical 4 nights at the Mowhay. We loved the cosy bedroom pod and the outside kitchen. The bathroom was great with amazing views from the window. We saw pheasants wirh tiny chicks, kestrels, cheeky magpies nosy robins, and a beautiful swift fly past all from the comfort of the veranda. We wandered the meadow, river and orchard and sunbathed on the lawn. Never felt the need to leave the site. Amazing scenery that makes you want to go back to see the spring.

The Mowhay is a lovely spot to relax and forget about the world. We had a wonderful time and was sad to leave. The place is just as the photos show if not a little better, the small touches like the stove having a fire laid make all the difference.

Ralph

Absolutely fantastic location, epic scenery and wildlife. I could use every cliche I could think of and not come close to how much we loved this place!

08/08/2016

Steve

This was our second stay here, for our first wedding anniversary, the first stay was for our honeymoon! We love the solitude and peace and quiet, we literally didn't see another soul! Perfect, we did nothing except enjoy each other's company, sunbathe, Cook outdoors, and marvel at nature all around us. So much wildlife to see. We never left the property, it is too good to miss a moment there! We will definitely go back for a third visit for our second anniversary!

Lisa

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

28/08/2015

Andrew

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

26/06/2015

Christopher

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

12/06/2015

Jason

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.

01/05/2015

Joseph

"Absolutely amazing! Perfect! Best holiday ever!"

21/07/2014

Ross

"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."

09/06/2014

Emily

"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."

19/07/2013

Amy

"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!"  

16/07/2013

Aliya

"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."

19/05/2013

Sandra

"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."

17/05/2013

Susan

"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."

10/05/2013

Sarah

I loved the Mowhay. It has the charm of a tiny cabin, but the luxury of a proper plumbed bathroom. The outdoor covered kitchen is an inspired idea and the views are stunning. Perfectly located too, in the middle of some short drives to nice Cornish locations.

14/09/2012

Lucinda

"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!"

10/09/2012

Laura

"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."

30/07/2012

Dave

"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."

05/08/2011

Jennifer

"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."

01/08/2011

Kate

"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!"

Food & Drink

At The Mowhay

The Mowhay has a fully equipped kitchen and a basic supply of herbs, salt & pepper and so on, but please bear in mind that anything else you need will have to be brought with you. There is no supply of eggs or honesty shop on site. There are plenty of shops in nearby Launceston. Of course, there are always...

Pubs & restaurants

Your nearest pub is the Springer Spaniel, Treburley. It's only a gentle three quarter of a mile walk up the hill, but completely out of sight of The Mowhay, so you can wander up safe in the knowledge that no one will be watching you stagger back. The place has excellent beer, wine and local food.

A little further off...

The Royal Pub at Horsebridge is about four miles off and serves good pub food and ale.

If you're travelling a bit further west, try the Rising Sun at Altarnun, highly recommended by Jasper, your absent host, 5 minutes of the A30 five lanes exit and half an hour from The Mowhay.

Meet your hosts

About the owners

ezembed

Jasper and Milla seem like the perfect couple to set up something like The Mowhay. He is a shipwright and woodworker by trade and she is an interior designer, so it's no surprise that it has turned out so well. They love this part of the world and have been coming down to their beloved Mowhay for a long time, enjoying family parties, weddings and magical camping experiences in its solitary splendour. You won't see much of them, or indeed meet them at all, because The Mowhay is completely self-service. Everything you need is right there.

All around you

The mixed habitats of the moors to the east and the coast not far off either north or south, put The Mowhay in the middle of some spectacular scenery and guarantee you a wealth of wildlife to be seen and heard. The amazing dawn chorus may well be followed by sightings of otters, badgers, deer and hunting buzzards. Best of all, you are quite likely not to see the Common Human, unless you make your way up the hill to the pub.

Getting there

The Mowhay, Trekkener Mill, PL15 9PN

By train or bus

Liskeard (15 mins away) is the nearest station and buses go to Callington, Liskeard and Launceston, all a similar distance from The Mowhay. Pick ups from the owner cannot be arranged.

By car

PLEASE NOTE: The Mowhay is completely self service. The owner will not be on site to greet you when you arrive or during your stay but you will have full instructions for settling in sent to you when you book, along with his contact number in case of any problems

Come down the A30 from Exeter past Okehampton, and take the exit to Launceston, (about 40 mins from Exeter). After the slip road take the 4th exit off the roundabout (for town centre) and as you go under the flyover (100yds) filter right back onto the A30 heading for Exeter and Okehampton! Go along the dual carriageway and take the first exit off, at the top of the slip road turn right for Callington, A388 (if you turn left there is a supermarket in about 100 yards) Drive on the A388 for 6 to 8 miles until you come to the Springer Spaniel pub, Treburley, on your right. After about 200yds (just past garage on your left) take the turning on the right. (this is not the turning next to the pub!!!!) follow this road for about ¾ mile past Jaspers Meats and down a narrow road that becomes like a tunnel of trees, when you first glimpse sight of a house or building you turn sharp left into the yard. There is an old metal milk churn by the gate.

Booking Terms

Canopy & Stars low price promise
 
Book with us in confidence knowing you won’t find that place cheaper elsewhere. All of the prices we display are set and matched by our Owners. (In this world of foreign currency, we do have to say 'subject to exchange rates' for some of our European places.)

What does ‘from price’ mean?
 
Our ‘from price’ is based on a four night stay in low season and designed to help you to compare different prices across our collection. Some of our Owners vary their nightly rates and check in days throughout the year, so it may differ from the rate quoted below the calendar. It is quite common (although by no means universal) for places to charge a little more in peak season or for shorter stays, to cover changeover costs. Consider booking longer stays during the cooler months if you’re looking for the lowest nightly rates.

2.2 Amendments and cancellations can only be accepted in accordance with the booking conditions of the Owner of your Arrangements. The Owner may charge the cancellation or amendment charges shown in their booking conditions (which may be as much as 100% of the cost of the Arrangements and will normally increase closer to the date of departure). The Owner may charge cancellation or amendment charges in accordance with its own booking conditions, however for the sake of convenience only, we have outlined the Owner’s charges at clause 2.3 and 2.4 below. Please note that these are the Owner’s own cancellation and amendments charges, not Canopy & Stars’, and therefore the Owner may vary their charges as they wish, without notice to us. The correct charges will be notified to you at the time of your cancellation or amendments.

2.3.1 Cancellation by you at any time will result in your deposit being forfeited, as all deposits are non-refundable.

2.4.1 Alterations to your Booking can only be made more than 10 weeks prior to the check in date, after which time alterations will be treated as cancellation. All alterations are subject to availability and may incur a £30 adminstration fee.

 

2.4.2 Differences in the total amount payable resulting from alterations will be refunded to you in the case of a decrease in price and paid by you in the case of increases in price.

3. Changes and Cancellations by the Owner

We will inform you as soon as reasonably possible if the Owner needs to make a significant change to your confirmed Arrangements or to cancel them. We will also liaise between you and the Owner in relation to any alternative Booking offered by the Owner but we will have no further liability to you.

 

4. Complaints

Because the contract for your Booking is between you and the Owner, any queries or concerns should be addressed to them. In the event that you have any complaint about your stay, please notify the Owner as soon as possible. If you don’t follow this procedure there will be less opportunity for the Owner to investigate and resolve your complaint and so make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Delays may also mean that amount of compensation you may be entitled to may be reduced. Whether or not your complaint is dealt with satisfactorily, please also contact us as we appreciate all feedback. It’s important to us and the Owner to know that you’ve enjoyed your stay or if anything could have been improved.

 

5. Pricing

Canopy & Stars reserve the right to amend advertised prices at any time on behalf of the Owner. We also reserve the right to correct errors in both advertised and confirmed prices.Special note: changes and errors sometimes occur.

 

6. Information & Accuracy

The information and prices shown on this website are varied from time to time and may change between the time you first view a property and make a Booking. You should check that all the details are as you expect prior to making a Booking. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the properties (including the features and extras available) may be incorrectly described and/or priced. If we discover this is the case after you have made a Booking, we reserve the right to contact you with details of the correct information and/or pricing and will give you the option to:

(1) proceed with the Booking based on the correct information and/or pricing, which may require the payment of an additional amount by you;

OR

(2) subject to availability, change your booking dates to dates when the pricing can be honoured ad so no additional charge to you. In the event that a lower price can be offered for alternative dates then the difference would be refunded;

OR

(3) cancel the Booking. If we do not receive your instructions within 5 days of contacting you, we reserve the right to cancel your Booking without liability to you.

 

7. Our Responsibility for your Booking

Your contract is with the Owner and its booking conditions apply. As Agent, we accept no responsibility for the actual provision of the Booking. Our responsibilities are limited to making the Booking in accordance with your instructions and acting properly in accordance with our legal duties as an Agent. We accept no responsibility for any information about the Booking that we pass on to you in good faith. However, in the event that we are found liable to you on any basis whatsoever, our maximum liability to you is limited to twice the cost of your Booking (or the appropriate proportion of this if not everyone on the Booking is affected). We do not exclude or limit any liability for death or personal injury that arises as a result of our negligence or that of any of our employees whilst acting in the course of their employment.

 

8. Pets

Not all properties accept pets. If you wish to take your pet on holiday, please advise us before booking and we can check whether pets are accepted at the property. You must obtain the prior consent of the Owner before taking any pets to the property. A nightly charge may be made by the Owner for each pet and additional terms may apply.

 

9. VAT

Many of the Owners of properties in the Canopy & Stars portfolio are not registered for VAT in which case no tax is payable. Where VAT is payable, the tax is included in the advertised holiday rental price.

 

10. Visa, passport and health requirements.

Unless you tell us otherwise, we assume that all members of your party are British citizens who hold or will hold full British passports valid for the entire duration of the Arrangements you chose to purchase. Information on visa, passport and health requirements, where given and applicable, is so given on this basis. Requirements may change and you are therefore strongly recommended to check the up to date position with the Owner of the Booking, Passport Office, appropriate embassy or consulate or your doctor as applicable in good time before the commencement of your holiday.

 

11. Insurance

You are strongly recommended to take out personal travel insurance for all members of your party. It is your responsibility to ensure that the insurance you purchase is adequate and appropriate for your particular needs. Please read your policy details and take them with you on holiday.

 

12. Special requests

If you have any special requests (for example dietary requirements, cots or room location), please let us know at the time of booking. We will pass on all such requests to the Owner, but unfortunately, we can't guarantee that they will be met and we will have no liability to you if they are not.

 

13. Group Bookings

Not all Owners accept Bookings for a single sex group (for example, a stag or hen party). Guests wanting to make such a Booking should check with us beforehand to enable us to check whether the Owner is prepared to accept the Booking. We will then advise you accordingly. In event that an Owner does not accept this type of Booking then it is with regret, that the Booking may be cancelled and cancellation fees may apply. It is the Guest’s responsibility to enquire with Canopy & Stars and/or check on our website beforehand to make sure that this type of booking is permitted.

 

14. Maximum Numbers

Please note that except by prior arrangement confirmed in writing, only the number of persons specified on a booking confirmation may occupy  a property. Most owners reserve the right to refuse admittance or revoke a booking if this condition is not observed and you are unlikely to receive any refund.

 

15. Your Responsibilities

Please note that you have a contract with the Owner of the property. As such you are under a responsibility to behave in a proper, appropriate and legal manner whilst staying at the property with due respect to the Owner, the Property and other guests and their property. You are responsible for informing the Owner of any losses or damage to the property as soon as possible. Please note that you will be liable to pay the Owner for any losses or damage to the property caused by you or a member of your party (except reasonable wear and tear). Some Owners will also require damage deposits. You must also leave the property by the check-out time specified on your booking.
