Such a beautiful, relaxing place to stay. Not the first time I've stayed and definitely won't be the last! Mark and Fenella are always so welcoming and nothing is ever too much trouble. There's so much attention to detail which is what makes Headland House so special and unique. Breakfast is fresh, tasty and presented beautifully. Such a lovely treat... More

Found this place by change, and although it's not 'on the beach' or 'waterfront' which many travellers expect and want in Cornwall, the views from many of the bedroom windows was more than fulfilling enough. (Our family took around 5 rooms so I had a chance to look at all of these in detail!). The room s were so beautifully... More

I chose this place as a birthday gift for my wife. It was my first visit St. Ives and we loved it. Staying in Headland House made our weekend trip even better as the room was fantastic with Seaview. Owners were very friendly. Defionitely recommend it. Carbis Bay is only 5 min train ride away from St. Ives and the... More

I stayed at Headland House twice in 2015, in May and then again in July with a group of 9 friends. The rooms are amazing in every detail, wonderful views, lush furnishing, it was like being in a magazine cover. Fenella is the friendliest host ever, breakfast is to die for, served in a panoramic conservatory over the bay... sitting... More

We spent six nights in total - our first night was in the Sennen room, which had stunning views over Carbis Bay - we arrived in early evening, and sitting in the well decorated outdoor area you could almost imagine you aren't in the UK! The following five nights were in the Cape Cornwall, a HUGE room at the back... More

From the moment we arrived at Headland House to the moment we (sadly) checked out we had the most perfect weekend. Mark and Fenella were so warm and welcoming and always had time to chat and supply us with useful local knowledge that certainly helped to make our weekend away so special. Our bedroom, The Boat House was beautifully decorated... More

What a lovely place to spend a couple of days in St Ives. Great location, lovely hosts and beautiful hotel overall. Breakfast is a feast and very nicely presented and prepared, whether you're a full english or cereal type of person. Room was very nice (we had the ground floor room with a private garden which added a little something... More

We stayed in The Net Loft which is separate to the main house. We had a large bedroom and a huge bathroom with separate shower. The room was perfectly clean, and the interior design was excellent! The owners were very welcoming, chatty, and they gave us great local advice. Overall, a great Boutique B&B in a stunning location!

An absolutely beautiful, serene place to connect with loved ones and the surroundings. We found this little piece of heaven in a place where I personally did not expect it. The accommodation and property is beautiful and has been painstakingly put together for an all-in-all wonderful experience. Thank you for making us feel so comfortable. Ashit & Fauzia
