Full description
A romantic cottage for two, steeped in decadent and distinctive design to showcase the very best of St Ives.

Gloriously unique and oozing glamour, a break spent at the idyllic Moon Shadow is guaranteed to inspire countless Instagram-worthy moments.

This stylish cottage is conveniently set just minutes away from picturesque Porthmeor beach, in St Ives' bustling artists' community - an ideal setting for creative inspiration both inside and out of your holiday home. Better still, you can even bring the dog along, too!

With meticulously designed accommodation spaced over two levels, it's fair to say Moon Shadow has that all-important ‘wow factor' you're looking for when you set off on a romantic break with your loved one.

Steeped in opulent design, and with a generous nod to its fresh seaside surroundings, you'll discover plenty of rich, vibrant colour, soft textured furnishings and exceptional use of light, for an indulgent, fully maximised space that just begs to be relaxed in.

The living area includes a large, deep chesterfield sofa that's perfect for cosying up with a glass of wine and good conversation after a buzzing day at the beach. Underfloor heating and an electric fireplace will ensure you're kept nice and toasty throughout the evening - and if conversation is too much after such a long day, why not catch up on your favourite TV shows instead, or make a start on that book you've never quite found time for?

A well-equipped kitchen area makes romantic feasts a pleasure to prepare, with its sociable L-shaped design, breakfast bar dining area, and thoughtful added touches that include a coffee machine and a dishwasher.

Head to the upper level and discover a snug, spacious-feeling bedroom, set beautifully underneath the rafters, to inspire many a lazy lie-in! With its king-sized bed set amongst soothingly stylish décor, there is plenty of space for storage here, while just next door you'll find a built-in wardrobe and a bespoke shower room to freshen up in.

With its tempting golden sands and fresh rolling waves, it's a good thing Porthmeor beach is right there on your doorstep. Located just below the iconic Tate St Ives, here you'll find a welcoming and bustling atmosphere that's chock-full of places to see, visit and while away time in, from ancient pubs, creative galleries, independent shops and tempting restaurants.

Of course, it almost goes without saying that you'll be spoilt for choice with coastal walks and beach hopping in this very special part of the UK. If you're feeling adventurous, why not try your hand at learning a brand-new watersport?

If you're looking for a side order of opulence and fresh adventure with your romantic break away, you'll soon find that Moon Shadow truly offers it all. We've just got one last piece of invaluable advice...don't forget your camera!
