Step inside this traditional stone-fronted fisherman's cottage and be dazzled by the decadent interior, perfectly blending slick industrial with coastal chic to create a raw yet refined effect. Located behind Porthmeor Beach, a gentle stroll will take you right to the water's edge where the best surf in St Ives is found.
The whole cottage has been insulated and sound-proofed to ensure privacy and there is underfloor heating to maximise guests' comfort. On the ground floor an open plan kitchen has everything you'll need for a smashing breakfast for two (including a Nespresso machine!) and the living area has a 40″ flat screen hanging above a state-of-the-art electric fireplace, the perfect place for snuggling under a throw at the end of the day. There is also a second toilet downstairs. Up the stairs on the first floor, exposed beams provide a spacious feeling to the bedroom and luxurious granite walk-in shower.
Surrounded by a fantastic selection of galleries including the iconic Tate St Ives, Moon Shadow is the perfect holiday home for the art enthusiast. The Porthgwidden Beach Cafe is spitting distance and serves incredibly fresh seafood, with incredible views out from the peninsula across the Atlantic Ocean.

Moon Shadow is located on Porthmeor Road immediately behind Porthmeor Beach on the northern side of St Ives – your feet will be in the sand thirty seconds from stepping out the front door! 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 and Porthgwidden Beach. St Ives itself has no fewer than 5 fantastic beaches which for a town that you can walk across in less than 20 minutes is something in itself. All beaches boast pale sand, turquoise water and some of the best surf around ensuring that St Ives is consistently considered one of the most beautiful (and in the winter fabulously raw) destinations in the UK.
St Ives sits on the North West coast of Cornwall and boasts one of the warmest climates in the UK thanks to the Atlantic Gulf Stream. Originally a fishing village, St Ives has become famous in more recent times as a haven for artists attracted to the area by the incredible light and rugged coastal landscape. St Ives subsequently flourished, becoming a cultural hotspot that is today awash with boutique galleries, local art studios and several internationally renowned institutions, including the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Tate St Ives, which is one of only four branches of the Tate Gallery. As you'd imagine with a town popular with artists, St Ives also has a reputation for top-notch food offering everything from delicious home-made meals to award-winning fine dining and everything in between. A casual stroll around town reveals a multitude of local restaurants, harbour side cafes, cosy pubs and stylish bars. St Ives also boasts one of the oldest Inns in Cornwall, The Sloop Inn being dated circa 1312.
For those of you keen to get out and explore more of the surrounding countryside, the local area has some great walking and hiking trails that range both in difficulty and length.
