The property

Close to the coast in Poldark's Cornwall, Moonfield is a wildly romantic, detached barn conversion with boutique touches, traditional cosiness and a meadow garden with fruit trees and gorgeous views. It lies in the far west in the peaceful hamlet of Nancherrow, close to the spectacular coastline at Cape Cornwall and the historic mining town of St Just. A rare find for ramblers, beachcombers, bird-watchers and peace seekers, Moonfield is located off-the-beaten-track in an area of outstanding natural beauty and a UNESCO World Heritage site.


This former stable and artist studio, dating back to 1840, has been tastefully renovated from tip to toe. Comfort, peace and excellent hiking and biking are guaranteed. Walk from the door through Kenidjack Valley, dotted with mining ruins, to the sea and South West Coast path. The setting is wild and atmospheric. See the iconic engine houses at Botallack where the Poldark mine scenes were filmed and head back via the pre-historic stone circle at Tregeseal. You can walk to St Just and its traditional pubs serving food, cafes, galleries and curio shops and stock up on provisions at the super-market, baker, butcher and greengrocer. For epic views climb the cape next to the secluded sand and pebble beach at Priest's Cove. For rolling surf and a wide stretch of white sand, head for surfy Sennen Cove. Follow the scenic coast road to St Ives for galleries, including the Tate, boutique shops and restaurants serving the freshest fish. St Michael's Mount, Land's End and The Minack, Cornwall's world famous open air theatre, are also a short drive.


Return home to luxurious simplicity and rustic charm. Reverse level, the entrance is on the first floor into an open plan living room with a modern kitchen. Compact, comfortable and intimate, the tall apex ceiling and dual aspect windows create a light filled space. Head downstairs to a sumptuous bedroom and an en-suite shower room with bath robes, thick fluffy towels and complimentary toiletries. A stable door leads from the bedroom to a courtyard garden for sundowners. The friendly owners reside in the main house and provide a delicious welcome tray including local Cornish produce on arrival.

About the location

ST JUST

Penzance 7.2 miles; St Ives 12.9 miles.

St Just is the nearest town to Land’s End and is situated approximately eight miles west of Penzance. The town itself is an ancient settlement that has a strong mining history and there are several monuments and prehistoric antiquities to visit including the Bronze Age settlement at Cape Cornwall. St Just is ideally located for visitors to explore the far west of Cornwall as it is situated on the edge of the moors and close to the beautiful north coast. In the centre of the town is Plain-an-Gwarry, a theatre used for miracle plays in medieval times, and in more recent times for the Lafrowda Festival.
