In beachy St Ives three sweet fisherman’s cottages have trendy interiors. Blue Moon and Moon Shadow sit next to each other on the coast road (busy in summer) but you’re a minute’s walk from the beach in a thriving arty area. Wooden steps lead up to slate and granite buildings, step into an open-plan kitchen/living area with comfy sofas, cushions and throws for lounging, large monochrome prints on the walls and lots of stainless steel wrapped around wood. Up narrow stairs to huge beds under vaulted ceilings and super-swish bathrooms. Tiny kitchens have everything you need cleverly slotted in and a breakfast bar and stools for meal times. Nearby Black Moon is the jewel in the crown and sits right on Bamaluz beach: French doors fling open to gaze out to sea, mirrors make the space feel bigger and the living room has a glass floor – go through the trap-door and down to a granite-clad sprawling area with a window to watch the waves crashing. A Moroccan style bath and contemporary electric fire adds to the ultra-modern feel. Romantic boltholes in fabulous locations near cool bars and restaurants. And you get a parking space!
