Full description
Blue Moon is a creatively cool Cornish retreat for two, set within the thriving artists' community of St Ives.

Comfort, imagination and creative inspiration are the order of the day at Blue Moon, an original fisherman's cottage-turned-bohemian bolthole for two (plus one well-behaved dog). Mere moments away from breathtaking Porthmeor Beach, you can feel the sand between your toes almost immediately after leaving your holiday cottage!

With stylish accommodation set over two levels, you'll find plenty of innovative design features, eclectic pieces of art and chic, nautical-inspired décor inside this lovingly restored cottage, to make you feel relaxed and ready to enjoy your time beside the seaside.

The welcoming living area features a deep, squishy L-shaped sofa (meaning plenty of room to stretch out with your loved one...or with a good book) and a flat-screen TV for snuggly, wine-fuelled evenings in. Electric underfloor heating will keep those toes toasty on colder evenings.

A bright, well-equipped kitchen area contains everything you need to prepare and savour many a seaside feast, including those all-important essentials: a dishwasher and a coffee machine!

You'll find a handy shower room, too - ideal for washing those sandy feet after a lazy stroll along the shore.

Head upstairs to your elegant bedroom, with its custom-built king sized bed, built-in wardrobe and flat-screen TV. The exposed rafters of the original roof make your sleeping space feel deliciously atmospheric - on stormier evenings you'll feel as though you've battened down those hatches to perfection.

Next door, you'll find a stylish dressing room with a desk, a full-length mirror and plenty of room for a cot - or indeed, all those clothes you decided to pack "just in case"!  

By day, grab those sandals and revel in exploring the local area. Known as a thriving artists' community, you'll find plenty of art galleries and craft shops to be discovered along stunning cobbled streets. St Ives is awash with glorious sandy beaches...just choose your favourite on a long summer's day and get ready to put down roots.

Enjoy fresh coffee and morning pastries from nearby St Ives Bakery, and then why not try your hand at a few water sports on the harbour beach...before a round of evening drinks at local favourite The Loft?

A creatively-inspired stay at Blue Moon is ideal for budding artists - or maybe those who enjoy the idea of a lazy, beauty-filled artist's life - so pack your imagination along with your free spirit and fresh sense of adventure...then get ready to indulge.
