We were recommended to stay at this bed & breakfast by a client who had stayed twice before, I'm so glad we decided to visit. The couple that own and run Headland House, Mark & Fenella, do a great job of making everyone feel welcome. The rooms are detailed to a very high standard, and during the day the house... More

The hosts - Mark and Fenella - made as feel incredibly welcome in their beautiful house. It was well equipped and they served the best scrambled eggs I have ever eaten. Along with the little touches (eg sweets in rooms & home made cake !!!!!) it made for a superb stay. Thanks to them both. As Arnie says, "I'll be... More

Lots of classy touches around the place, most of... More

As always, Fenella and Mark were the perfect hosts, taking care of us, and spoiling my wife on her birthday with a bottle of bubbly. Breakfasts were, as always, fantastic, and there is just something about sitting on the outside decking in the afternoon with a coffee and cake (chocolate) that really cant be beaten. We always like the walk... More

Just back from 3 nights at Headland House. This B&B is just beautiful..the house is stunning!! Decor so calming and perfect attention to detail. Such a lovely touch of tea lights and candles which are lit in the evening setting the mood as you head out for dinner. Our room was 'Mousehole' on the top floor. The bedroom is small... More

This is an absolutely fabulous hotel in Carbis Bay. It sits about 100 metres from a lovely sandy beach. It is 50 metres from the train station (3 mins to St Ives). And about 5 mins in the car off the main A30 . How much more convenient could you want it? My wife and I spent five relaxing days... More

Located in quiet Carbis Bay, a short train ride or 30 minute stroll along the Coastal Path from busy St. Ives, this is all a great B&B should be. Mark and Fenella are hands on ,paying attention to every need of the guests. Mark was not only a font of information on where to go but a walking Zagat guide... More

For those travelers like myself who choose to go without a vehicle, this is a completely manageable place to stay. There is a train that takes you into St Ives in less than five minutes. I took a taxi to Headland House. Mark and Fenella are the perfect B & B hosts and this is a perfect spot to enjoy... More
