Ideal for couples looking for a cool Cornish retreat, Blue Moon is a chic bohemian bolthole set in the endearing seaside town of St Ives.
Located just next to Moon Shadow, Blue Moon’s clever design and stylish details have transformed this modest fisherman’s cottage into cosy and creative space set across two levels. This makes it the perfect weekend bolthole for either a couple or a single traveller looking for somewhere more imaginative than the usual accommodation options in Cornwall.
Downstairs, there is an open-plan kitchen and living area with a deep-set sofa and another flat screen television. Just opposite the bottom of the stairs is the shower room.
Upstairs, the main bedroom has a custom-built king size bed, a built-in wardrobe and a flat-screen television — and the room feels wonderfully atmospheric thanks to the exposed rafters of the original roof. Next door, there is a dressing room with space to fit a cot.
Blue Moon is located on Porthmeor Road and is moments away from Porthmeor Beach on the northern side of the town, an area known for its thriving artist community. This means your feet can be in the sand mere minutes after stepping out of your front door. Although you are spoilt for choice when it comes to beaches in St Ives — a 5-minute stroll through the cobbled streets will bring you to Bamaluz, Porthgwidden and the harbour beach, along with dozens of high-quality restaurants, art galleries and craft shops.
