Moon Shadow’s interior mixes the raw and the refined, the oceanic and the industrial. It’s a daring yet decadent 1 bedroom cottage for a memorable escape in St Ives.
Split over 2 levels, you’ll find the open plan living room and kitchen downstairs, and upstairs the whole space has been opened to the rafters with the bedroom area divided from the shower room by a built-in wardrobe.
The space feels surprisingly large for a 1 bedroom holiday rental in St Ives. Despite the fantastic 6ft super king bed, ample storage, flat screen TV and a brilliant walk-in shower area, the magic of this space is not the practicality, but the style in which it is finished. Meticulously thought out to maximise the compact size of the cottage, Moon Shadow is one of the most remarkable and distinct holiday lets in St Ives.
Downstairs, the first half of the living space has a fantastic chesterfield sofa, coffee table and 40″ TV above an electric fireplace; a great spot to chill out 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.
The finish is exceptional. Amazing textures combine with mirrors and superb lighting to give this place an overwhelming quality you just can’t find in most holiday cottages in St Ives. With underfloor heating and a fully equipped kitchen, this is one of the most private and romantic self-catered cottages to rent in Cornwall.

Dogs: Whilst being a dog-friendly cottage, Moon Shadow can only accept small-medium dogs for an additional £30. Both the Bamaluz and Clodgy Point beaches nearby allow dogs all year round.
Parking: 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 Ford Focus, VW Polo, Peugeot 206) and not suitable for 4 x 4, large estate cars, sports cars or people carriers. Should you have a bigger car, Beachspoke also owns a private secure car parking space in St Ives that is available at an additional charge. Please contact the office to enquire about availability and cost.
Moon Shadow is located on Porthmeor Road immediately behind Porthmeor Beach on the northern side of the town, an area known for its thriving artist community. 30 seconds from stepping out the front door, your feet can be in the sand! That said, you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to beaches in St Ives and if you fancy a change, a short 5 minute stroll through the cobbled streets will bring you to, Bamaluz, Porthgwidden and the harbour beach along with at least a dozen top quality restaurants, art galleries and craft shops.
