  • Overview

    This decadent hideaway for 2 is a slick bedroom cottage within metres of one of the best surfing beaches in St Ives, Cornwall. Once an old fisherman's cottage Beachspoke's Moon Shadow is now a luxury retreat, the perfect escape for a romantic few days away. The finishing touches, including underfloor heating, works of art and lighting in the cottage are exceptional and on a par with some of the best city boutique hotels. Small dogs are welcome for an additional charge.

    You're right on the water so if the weather is fine you should keep a morning or afternoon free for a fishing or boat trip. If you're both into golf then you can receive £10 off a round on the West Cornwall Golf Club, a stunning seaside course which was built in 1889. There are 4 beaches nearby, all within walking distance including Porthmeor which backs onto the Tate Gallery and faces the Atlantic and Porthminster which is near the train and bus stations. After a day's surfing on the beach or wandering around the town, you may feel like a bit of pampering in the comfort of the cottage; Sarah Lund works magic with her hands and brings everything to you including towels, oils, music and portable couches. She has plenty of treatments for you to choose from including Reflexology and balancing treatments.

    If you don't fancy cooking up your own storm in the kitchen then wander into St Ives and try out some of the excellent restaurants. Lobster risotto is excellent at Alba and The Black Rock serves a mean Beetroot Gnocchi. For wines and beers head to John's Wines run by John and his brother who will spend time with you to make sure you go home with exactly what you're looking for. Local cheeses and specialities, including homemade chutneys, are sold at the Allotment Deli in St Ives.
