Had a fabulous stay! From the decor,ambiance, breakfast and the attention to detail. The owners have thought of everything. Don't take the train into St Ives, enjoy the coastal walk. Would defiantly return.

Wonderful stay at The Headland Hotel - arrived early evening and greeted warmly by Fenella. We stayed in the Heligan room which did not have a sea view but was quiet, well equipped and felt very private. The breakfasts at The Headland were the best we experienced in Cornwall - we stayed at 4 hotels over six nights - and... More

The place was immaculate, its modern yet homey. Fab location as you can walk to st ives (25 mins walk to the town along... More

I had seen an article featuring Headland House B&B in a glossy magazine last year and was immediately attracted by the photos of the interior and stunning views. I checked out the website for available dates, but found they were fully booked for the entire summer season! Having stayed at Headland House this July, I now know why this beautiful... More

This hotel is amazing. Fenella & her husband really know how to look after their guests. I cannot fault anything. We were staying here for a friend's wedding nearby & it was our first "child free" trip. We stayed in the Porthmeor room (hope I've spelt it correct!). We had an amazing view of the sea. The bed was so... More

This was our first stay at a UK hotel for many years and Headland House impressed us immensely. It is conveniently located for access to St Ives, with the station very close by, thus avoiding the horrors of parking in the town. The hotel is very comfortable and homely offering a breakfast with a wide choice of excellent food and... More

Everything is great about this B and B. On arrival you walk through a pathway of beautiful smelling lavender bushes. You are then greeted by a friendly owner, shown to a lovely room with an amazing view and big slices of carrot cake. Breakfasts were excellent. The staff couldn't be friendlier or more helpful.

The minute you arrive you know you've found heaven. Mark and Fenella are so welcoming and provide an incredibly comfy stay, it's like it's all a dream! No detail is forgotten and no ask to big. I know we will be back again and again!

Had a pleasant stay at headland house. We stayed in Porthminster room which is small and rather seaside rustic with a gorgeous view looking out towards the sea with St Ives in the distance.The bed was very comfy and it was a treat to have a different cake put in the room each day. The breakfasts were lovely but missed... More
