Warm, sympathetic welcome, beautifully decorated room and lounge, everything well appointed. After our long walk Helen offered us a pot of tea -- very welcome. Lovely breakfast -- nice change from the normal cooked breakfast.

This was our second stay at Headland View and we love this place. Craig and Helen make you feel very welcome without being in your face. Breakfast is absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection. The view from the balcony is wonderful and this is the ideal place to escape the rat race and recharge your batteries. We will be back!

Our second visit to Headland view was just as good as the first. A warm welcome made us feel straight at home. Spotlessly clean and attention to every detail ensures the most pleasant break. Lovely views, first class service and a good breakfast...what more could we ask for? We are looking forward to our next visit.
