black moon

Sleeps 2 From £240 per night

With mesmerising sea views and opulent interiors, Black Moon is a romantic break in Cornwall like no other. The private luxury apartment sits right upon the Celtic Sea and is an incredibly unique place to stay in St Ives.

The Kitchen & Living Room
The apartment has an open-plan kitchen and living room that look toward floor-to-ceiling glass doors opening onto a majestic view of St Ives bay. The water is so close that at high tide, it crashes against the side of the apartment, creating the same drama as being on a boat.

And better yet, an Enid Blyton-style trap door leads you to a private cave beneath the living room where you can lie on fur rugs whilst sipping a glass of champagne as you watch the sun set.

The Bedroom & Bathroom
The bedroom, meanwhile, is separated from the living room by a sliding mirrored wall, allowing for some truly incredible St Ives sea views from the moment you wake up. To the rear of the bedroom is the en-suite bathroom with a full-size bath and walk-in shower.
