Black Moon


A mystical cottage, Black Moon changes the game when it comes to a holiday let in Cornwall. A striking one bedroom property that overlooks the bay towards Gwithian lighthouse, Black Moon transforms the ubiquitous luxury cottage into a private hideaway.


“I do not have enough words to describe how beautiful this is! The attention to detail in the design and decor was perfect and is truly one of the nicest places I have stayed. It’s very cozy and provides everything you could need. The bed is so comfortable and you can even hear the harbor/ocean sounds as you sleep. Very convenient if you are looking to travel to other areas of Cornwall (the bus stops outside the flat and takes you to the train station). It smelled so lovely as well. We received great information from the property manager on restaurant recommendations, directions, etc. Great experience and wish we stayed longer but will certainly be back. ”  October 2015


A private, elegant and edgy space, very much designed with a couple in mind, Black Moon has everything you need for that private weekend getaway. It has an open plan, full equipped kitchen and living room with two large comfortable sofas, 42″ TV, Bose iPod dock, bar style dining table. The living room also features large floor to ceiling glass doors that open out onto stunning views over St Ives bay towards Gwithian lighthouse. The ocean is so close that at high tide it can be found crashing against the side of the house itself! The living room also has a glass floor that looks down into your own private cave/snug area.

Ever dreamed about lying in a super king sized custom made bed whilst watching the sun set or rise over the ocean? Well at Black Moon that’s exactly what you can do as the bedroom is separated from the living room by a huge sliding mirrored wall, allowing for some truly incredible views. To the rear of the bedroom is the en suite bathroom with full-sized bath and walk-in shower; the walls are covered in rough granite tiles lit with funky fibre optics.
