Moon Shadow Cottage
...Moon is a daring yet decadent one-bedroom cottage, it provides a treasure trove of Instagram moments for any visitors to St Ives.
Split over two levels, you will find the open-plan living room and kitchen downstairs, and a vast bedroom upstairs that sits majestically under the rafters, with a shower room and built-in wardrobe next door. It feels surprisingly spacious, easily fitting in a 6ft super king bed, ample storage, a flat-screen TV and a walk-in shower area — all in all, it is a space that entirely unique. It’s design has been meticulously thought-out to maximise the compact size of the cottage, Moon Shadow is easily one of the most remarkable and distinct holiday cottages in St Ives.
Downstairs, the first half of the living space has a deep chesterfield sofa, a coffee table and 40″ TV above an electric fireplace, creating an utterly tempting space to relax in after a long walk on the beach. The L-shaped kitchen divides the space from the living area, with a compact larder fridge and a breakfast bar dining area. At the back is the downstairs loo.
Throughout this apartment, the finish is exceptional. Stylish textures combine with mirrors and superb lighting to give the space a glamorous atmosphere that somehow also feels rustic. With underfloor heating and a fully equipped kitchen, this is one of the most private and romantic self-catered cottages to rent in Cornwall.
Please do enjoy complimentary WiFi, Freeview, and electric under-floor heating in Moon Shadow.
Whilst being a dog-friendly cottage, Moon Shadow can only accept small-medium dogs for an additional £30. We kindly ask that they do not go on the furniture or into the bedroom area upstairs.
Check in is at 4.00pm and check out is at 10:00am.
Moon Shadow comes with a private parking space located in a small courtyard underneath the property. The entrance to the courtyard is steep and narrow so this space is only suitable for small/medium size saloon or estate cars (for example a VW Polo) and not suitable for 4X4, large estate cars, sports cars or people carriers. Should you have a bigger car, we own a private secure car parking space in St Ives that is available at an additional charge. Please contact us to enquire about availability and cost.
Moon Shadow is located on Porthmeor Road and is moments away from Porthmeor Beach on the northern side of the town, an area known for its thriving artist community. This means your feet can be in the sand mere minutes after stepping out of your front door. Although you are spoilt for choice when it comes to beaches in St Ives — a five-minute stroll through the cobbled streets will bring you to Bamaluz, Porthgwidden and the harbour beach, along with dozens of high-quality restaurants, art galleries and craft shops.
