2 nights just isn't enough! This is a truly luxurious Boutique B & B. Exceptional in every way - accommodation, attention to detail, breakfast and more. Fenella and Mark go above and beyond to delivery a truly luxurious stay. They are warm and extremely helpful hosts. Fab breakfast using fresh, local produce. Wonderful sea view and train into St Ives... More

We stayed here for two nights at the end of our honeymoon in May and couldn't have had a nicer stay. It is listed as B&B but really is more like a very homely hotel! The decor is beautiful, facilities top class and the staff really helpful and friendly. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome... More

My husband and I were lucky enough to stay at Headland House Hotel for two nights in early June. I say lucky, but there had been alot of research taken before we booked. 'Time spent in reconnaissance is time never wasted' is a well known quote and believe me it was worth the search! Headland House was just a perfect... More

Just arrived home after yet another stay at Headland House. Have reviewed the property before so all i can say is it still is a truly wonderful place to stay. Mark and Fenella are lovely hosts and we look forward to our next visit.

We visited Headland House for a short 3 night break and had an excellent time. The house is in a quiet street in Carbis Bay - a 2 minute walk from the train station. This was very handy for the 5 minute and £1 trip into St Ives. Parking was ample in the private car park - we never had... More

We couldn't be happier with our recent 4 day stay at Headland House. Mark and Fenella are real characters: super friendly, warm, helpful and funny. They really added to our holiday enjoyment. They've decorated Headland House in a very cool, shabby-chic style. Mum's seaview room afforded beautiful sweeping views of Carbis Bay. My chic, free-standing bath was a happy way... More

We were looking forward to our 4-night stay as the reviews for this luxury guesthouse were so good. Our room was large and beautifully furnished. It was at the end of the garden in what appeared to be a newbuild extension. The windows were in the roof so there was no view. Wifi was erratic which may be because of... More
