We spent a fantastic week in this lovely cottage, and we are so pleased that we did. Set in the owners' grounds, it is located off a short climb up a country lane, and although the climb is not particularly forgiving on older knees after a strenuous walk, it is relatively short and does give you the benefit of scenic views over peaceful countryside, and across to St Just a short distance away.
Entry from the spacious gravelled car park is to the upper floor, where the the kitchen/dining lounge area are located; the comfortable bedroom and the ensuite are downstairs. In truth the accommodation is not overly generous in size, but the available space is well used, so it did not feel at all cramped. What impressed us was the attention to detail. Moonfield was spotless, tastefully (and freshly) decorated and superbly well appointed, with everything you could need for a week's self catering and a thoughtful, well stocked welcome pack which included local produce.
Moonfield's host Margaret was very welcoming and helpful but at the same time did not intrude, the perfect combination.
St Just is easily accessible by car, although the stroll to it is a short one and you have the choice of either crossing fields or following a surfaced path (although just be aware there is a climb into the village at the end, this is Cornwall!). We visited St Just about 12 years ago in passing and our recollection is of it seeming a little humdrum; either that was a false impression or the village has got its act together since, and it supports a superb delicatessen/greengrocers, a bakers, butchers (I think there may be two) and many other useful stores. We visited 2 of the village's 3 pubs (purely in the interest of research you'll understand) and liked them both.
We chose Moonfield because it looked like high quality accommodation in a peaceful setting with good access to the coast path, and that's exactly what we got. At the bottom of the lane you cross to the lush, little frequented Kenidjack Valley and a quiet road that takes you down to the coast. Turn left and there is a good walk which will take you to Cape Cornwall, Whitesands Bay, Sennen Cove and (if you are feeling particularly energetic) Land's End; turn right and you head toward the fascinating archaeological history of the Levant Mine and Beam Engine, Pendeen Lighthouse and the wild north coast. But there are equally rewarding walks and many other attractions a short car ride way.
I have been singing the praises of Moonfield to anyone who will listen since my return, and am delighted to be the first to do so on this site.
