With mesmerising sea views and decadent interiors, Black Moon is one of the most delightful one-bedroom holiday lets in Cornwall. Designed with romantics in mind, the private apartment, which is dominated by an unforgettable sea view, is the dream setting for an escape to St Ives.
Its open plan kitchen and living area will suit anyone who likes a little luxury with their rustic sea retreats. The living room boasts floor to ceiling glass doors that open onto a majestic panoramic view of St Ives bay and the Gwithian lighthouse. The water is so close that at high tide, it crashes against the side of the house, filling the property with that wonderful salty smell that immediately says ‘holiday’.
And better yet, an Enid Blyton-style trap door leads you down to your own private cave below the living room where you can lie on the fur rugs with a glass of champagne and watch the sun set over the sea through the window that is built into the stone wall.
The bedroom, meanwhile, is separated from the living room by a sliding mirrored wall, allowing for some truly incredible St Ives sea views. To the rear of the bedroom is the en-suite bathroom with a full-size bath and walk-in shower.
