14/11/2017 New to Host Unusual: More unique design-led holidays from Beachspoke

Purveyors of the unique design stay, Beachspoke properties are so much more than your standard holiday home. Each has its own distinctive style, with a sense of character that provides a refreshing antidote to the unimaginative hotel or holiday let experience. With locations as varied as Devon, Cornwall and the Cotswolds, here we are proud to introduce yet more properties that are perfect for a romantic escape, a friend-filled holiday or a family break (including the dog!) with a design-led twist.

Black Moon


How many seaside boltholes can lay claim to their very own subterranean cave snug with direct sea views?  Welcome to Black Moon; an atmospheric and mesmerising Cornish retreat designed with romantics and explorers in mind. A Blyton-esque trap door leads from the living room into your private cave with fur rugs (pictured), whilst upstairs ceiling-to-floor glass doors allow light to flood in, along with the fresh salty air that hits the senses, sometimes accompanied by high tide waves crashing against the cottage walls (main picture). Not forgetting of course those majestic views over St Ives Bay.

Yarrow Cottage


Every bit the typical Cotswolds thatched cottage from the outside, Yarrow Cottage hides a wealth of design secrets, and once you have opened the doors to this peaceful holiday escape you will fully appreciate the charm of its eclectic design. Here, rural touches like wood beams and a cosy log-burning stove contrast with the copper roll-top bath tub, Balinese furniture and striking artworks. A complimentary spirits bar, creative lighting and dining space for eight make it the perfect entertaining space too, so gather your nearest and dearest and head to the countryside!

Blue Moon


Another chic retreat in the working harbour turned cultural and tourism hotspot of St Ives, Blue Moon is a vibrant antidote to the usual seaside cottage. Cleverly staying 'on theme' by using nautical-inspired decor, this bijoux former fisherman's home features two levels of contemporary design. The squishy L-shaped sofa is perfect for relaxing, and the electric underfloor heating makes it al the more cosy for those winter months. A perfect base for meandering the cobbled streets and exploring the many artist galleries, Blue Moon is sure to ignite your holiday spirit.

Coxswain's Cottage


Offering direct access to the beach and a starlit steam room, Coxswain's is also in St Ives. A charming stone-walled sanctuary that is impeccably designed over three floors, it is an ideal choice for families thanks to its generous proportions and furnishings including a large 6-seater sofa, fully equipped kitchen and outdoor patio - a perfect breakfast spot. Two of the three bedrooms are en-suite, and a third bathroom cleverly converts into the steam room facility, so if you're tempted by a dip in the Cornish sea this could be the perfectly warming post-swim activity.
