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

Thank you TA! We choose to stay at Headland House after reading 253 reviews from the community of which 96% rated Headland House EXCELLENT. This is indeed a fantastic place if you prefer not living in St Ives but a 25 minute walk or a short train ride away from this buzzing town filled with (other) tourists. We definitely liked... 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

I could rabbit on about Mark, Fenella and the staff, the relaxed atmosphere, the tasteful decor throughout the house, the wonderful breakfasts, the complimentary afternoon cake, the location, the views etc but I won't because we don't want too many people to find this wonderful gem!

A beautiful place to stay in the most amazing part of England. The rooms are lovely and beach themed, with absolutely wonderful views. We stayed in Porthcurno (number 6) it seemed smaller than the others we saw but that didn't make any difference to us at all. There was still plenty of room with us and our massive caseload of...
