  • Overview

    Beachspoke brings a new and unique boutique hotel concept to St Ives in Cornwall. Indulgent spaces, these hideaways are designed just for 2 people and are created with fun and decadence in mind. Black Moon is a luxurious hideaway complete with 42" TV, Bose iPod dock, bar-style dining table and fully-equipped kitchen, not to mention stunning sea views. Black Moon has floor to ceiling glass doors and the ocean is close enough at high tide for it to be splashing against the house. This little gem is a very sexy and seductive space purposely designed for couples. Set on the North West coast of Cornwall and boasting one of the warmest climates in the UK, it's easy to see why St Ives won the award for both Best Seaside Holiday Destination and UK's Top Beach Resort. Please note that a 3 night minimum stay is required; stays of 1 or 2 nights have a surcharge.


    St Ives has become famous as a haven for talented artists attracted to the area by the incredible light and savage coastal landscape.  St Ives is now full of boutique galleries, art studios and several internationally renowned institutions, including the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Tate St Ives. There are 5 great beaches to choose from including Porthmeor, Porthgwidden and Porthminster all within 20 minutes walk. Pale sands, crystal clear water and some of the best surf in Cornwall make St Ives one of the most beautiful holiday hot spots in the UK. 


    Foodies will enjoy the choice of great restaurants and bars in and around St Ives. Home-made meals, fine dining and simple local dishes are all on offer and right on your door step.  There is a multitude of local restaurants, harbourside cafés, cosy pubs and stylish bars as well as one of the oldest Inns in Cornwall, The Sloop Inn dating from circa 1312.

    Moon Shadow

    Max 2 guests
    Finished at the End of March 2013 Moon shadow is the newest addition to Beachspoke's portfolio. Designed from an empty shell, this amazing cottage has had no expense spared in creating a truly unique space, more akin to a slick boutique London hotel, than a fisherman's cottage in Cornwall. Split over two levels, downstairs you'll find the open plan living room and kitchen, whilst upstairs the whole space has been opened to the rafters with the bedroom area divided from the shower room by a built in wardrobe. Downstairs, the first half of the living space has a fantastic chesterfield sofa, coffee table and 40" television above a state-of-the-art electric fireplace, a great spot to chill-out in after a long walk on the beach. The L-shaped kitchen divides the space from the living area with a fully fitted kitchen and a breakfast bar dining area. At the back you will find the downstairs loo. Up the stairs the space feels surprisingly large for a cottage of this size with a fantastic 6ft super king bed, ample storage, a flat screen TV and a brilliant walk in shower area. The ceilings have been opened up to expose the rafters above. The magic of this space though is not the practicality, great as it is, but the style in which it is finished. The space has been meticulously thought out to maximize the compact size of the cottage. The finish is exceptional, amazing textures combine with mirrors, superb lighting and works of art to give this place an overwhelming quality usually reserved only for the very best city hotels. The whole cottage has been fitted with underfloor heating, so no ugly radiators to worry about, and since the cottage has been complete re-insulated and soundproofed, you can rest assured this is one of the most private and spectacular properties in Cornwall.
