The cottage was completely rebuilt to modern standards in 2009 and is furnished and equipped with care to provide attractive and comfortable accommodation for 2 people. The accommodation is open plan but with partial walls which gives each room a feeling of separation. There is a small fitted kitchen with an electric cooker and ceramic induction hob, microwave, and refrigerator with freezer section. There is a pleasant sitting room and dining area with comfortable chairs and a flat screen television/Freeview/DVD player. A modern wood burning stove provides a delightful and relaxing atmosphere to both bedroom and lounge. The bedroom, with a double bed and hanging space has a door which opens into the garden. There is a cloakroom with a W.C and large basin plus a separate wet room (narrowing to 2ft wide) with a power shower providing constant hot water. The wood burner provides the main heating in the cottage in combination with electric radiators. Logs are provided. Heating/electricity without extra charge. (Private use of washing machine/freezer in the nearby Fort Redoubt which is being converted into private accommodation by the owners of Moonfleet).
Moonfleet is surrounded by a private open plan garden of lawns which extend to the nearby cliff edge. Visitors are therefore asked to take the utmost care when in the garden. Visitors can unload luggage in an area just above the garden and park a car in the Fort courtyard which is under a minute’s walk away. Pleasant general stores within a 10 minute stroll; public house, tea room, cafe and regular bus service within 5 minutes walk.
