Lovers of luxury and romance will find this private retreat for two exceeds every last dream holiday expectation.

Complete with opulent interiors and outstanding sea views – with the tide crashing romantically against the walls! – Black Moon is a holiday home primed for pure indulgence of every sense.

Perfectly situated on Cornwall’s secluded Bamaluz Beach, the open plan living area comes complete with floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open out to St. Ives Bay, showcasing truly magnificent panoramic views of the sea and the renowned Gwithian lighthouse. Fling open the doors, curl up on the cosy L-shaped sofa, and breathe in all that fresh, salty sea air as you catch up on life with your loved one. Underfloor heating will keep you lovely and toasty as the evening draws in.

A well-equipped kitchen area and bar style dining table for two takes care of romantic feasts (simply set the Bose iPod dock to play your favourite background music, and you’re away – literally!).

The décor throughout is gleaming and sumptuous, with a sliding mirrored wall separating the living area from a bedroom furnished for deliciously lazy mornings. Featuring a built-in wardrobe and a super king sized bed dressed in fresh linen, you’ll want to hide here all holiday long! An ensuite bathroom houses a deep bath and a lavish walk-in shower…not to mention plenty of fluffy towels.

The jewel in Black Moon’s crown, however, has to be the mystery trap door that leads you down via ladder to your very own private cave for two, directly below the living room! Here you can lie blissfully on soft fur rugs, pop open the champagne, and watch the sun setting over the sea from a window built into the stone wall.

You may never want to leave…but just in case you do, creative types will revel in the fact that Black Moon is situated within St. Ives’ vibrant artists’ district. The Blue Bramble Gallery is particularly well-known for its wonderful paintings, crafts and ceramics, so why not pay a visit, and then head to one of the many local restaurants nearby?
