Charming Downalong cottage full of unique features
Situated just moments from Porthmeor Beach, Moon Shadow is a charming cottage in the heart of old St Ives, in the popular area of Downalong – which is known for its thriving artist community.

The well-equipped, l-shaped kitchen boasts a compact larder fridge, electric hob/oven and a Nespresso machine and a breakfast bar. The WC is also downstairs.
Upstairs, reached via an original staircase, the spacious bedroom is full of character. With a sumptuous super king bed, smart TV, and built-in wardrobe it’s a stylish yet calming space. There’s also a walk in rainfall shower, with a pebble floor and unique natural stone bowl sink.
The design of Moon Shadow has been well considered, and finished to a high standard with underfloor heating. A pet-friendly cottage, it also comes with one private parking space. This unique property, in such a sought after location, makes an idyllic choice for a romantic couples getaway.
