Perched above the thriving fishing harbour of Port Isaac at the top of Roscarrock Hill, Moonfleet commands the best seat in the house. Recently refurbished throughout, this self catering property is a majestic three storey Victorian terraced holiday home with dual aspect views of the coast, panoramic harbour and sea views that can be enjoyed from the front of the property and for those who enjoy the countryside, you can appreciate rural views from the rear rooms and private elevated garden area. Parallel to the famous novel, Moonfleet written by J. Meade Falkner, an adventure tale of smuggling and treasure, there are many traditional and characterful features throughout this stunning holiday home including large windows, high ceilings and slate floors on the ground floor area that create the perfect scene for that memorable family holiday. Sleeping ten guests in five bedrooms, it is ideal for a large family or group of friends holiday on the North Cornish coast within just a short stroll down the hill to village amenities and Doc Martin’s cottage. There is also private parking for three cars at the top of Roscarrock Hill.
From the moment you start unpacking the car, Moonfleet’s stunning setting will capture your attention. A short stroll to the front door, the ground floor offers a well-equipped kitchen with an Everhot cooker, plenty of fridge space and a sonos music system where you can link up your music device and listen to your favourite tunes whilst rustling up delicious hearty meals after busy days out and about. The dining room is linked to the kitchen space with stunning harbour and sea views from the dining table and additional window seat. There is also a TV room which has wooden flooring and deep cosy sofas surround the gas fire place and bay window with the ever-changing seascape as a backdrop. Climb up the stairs to the drawing room with an open fire to snuggle up with a favourite novel during cooler months whilst watching the waves crash against the cliffs. The five bedrooms are divided on two floors, all individually decorated in calm, neutral tones. The master bedroom is found on the first floor with a king size bed and en-suite bath and shower room, there is a further twin bedroom with a zip and link combination providing the ultimate flexibility. The second floor offers two king bedrooms, a double bedroom and the family bathroom. Outside to the front of Moonfleet, a spacious terrace provides hours of harbourside watch, the perfect spot for al fresco dining or strolling to the bottom of the garden where you can join the coast path and explore. The rear, elevated garden is accessed through the outhouse up a set of stairs, from here you can admire the sounds of the countryside and challenge your family and friends to some garden games.
From your doorstep, take a short stroll into the old village and harbour of Port Isaac. Port Isaac is a wonderful place to visit on the North Cornish coast that offers quaint shops, characterful cafes, cosy pubs and restaurants, and is the home of the popular TV Series Doc Martin and the Fisherman’s Friends boys who regularly perform live on the Platt during summer months. Pull on your jumper and walking boots and tackle the coastal paths that sweep around the clifftops from Moonfleet, at each point, the coastal views will catch your breath and if you are really lucky, you may be able to spot a pod of dolphin following the boats. Not far away from various North Cornwall must-sees, take a 15-minute drive to the nearby Polzeath surfing beach or the popular sailing hub of Rock on the Camel Estuary and even a short ferry over to Padstow to explore the historic harbour town and sample some local delicacies.
