Probably without a doubt the best B&B my husband and I have ever stayed at. The hosts Fenella and Mark were more than hospitable and made us feel extremely welcome and at home. The breakfast was lush, it had good variety (both hot and cold food) and the food was all organic and delicious. In addition, every afternoon we were... More

As one of the previous reviewers has said- if I had a hotel I would want it to be just like this! We stayed in the 'Boat House' room for our mini moon, it was the perfect escape. The breakfast was delicious- delivered to our room at the time we requested. The owners are lovely and have really thought through... More

Wow if I ever owned a B&B I would want it to look and be like this. Every part of the hotel was beautiful, with lots of personal touches. The owners were fantastic, giving tips of places to go. So enthusiastic and so welcoming Breakfast was really nice and with car parking. We hope to return soon

My husband and I visited this amazing B & B Boutique Hotel for a Bank Holiday break. It is hard to find words deserving of this establishment that haven't been said before. Location was perfect, our room had an amazing view of St Ives bay which was truly breathtaking. The Hotel and our room was beautiful and elegantly furnished with... More

We visited this place the days after our wedding to relax and recharge. We were met by Mark at arrival and immediately felt welcome. The house itself has an amazing atmosphere and feel to it. I can honestly say I have never felt more comfortable in any hotel/b&b. The rooms are lovely, nicely decorated, beds are comfortable, the rooms are... More

I'm always so sad to leave such a stunning place which leaves me feeling relaxed and rested. I have stayed at Headland House more than a few times and always enjoy the beautiful setting and amazing attention to detail. Would highly recommend to who enjoys a peaceful break by the sea with stunning surroundings. Thanks again Mark and Fenella!

We stayed at Headland House in June of this year and were back in September for another short break and to enjoy some of the St Ives festival. Even towards the end of the season everything is just as perfect. Same warm welcome, relaxed atmosphere, the complimentary cake, the tealights burning gently, great breakfasts, spotless rooms - it's the sum... More
