Another great stay with Craig and Helen at Headland View!

Bedrooms are tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean with very comfortable beds and complimentary tea and coffee. Breakfast...super choice of juices, cereals, fruits and... More

We stayed at Headland View last weekend for two nights. Helen & Craig run a spotlessly clean b & b, their hospitality is second to none. Breakfasts were outstanding, with a great daily special. Views from rooms at front are amazing looking over Babbacombe bay. We received tea & homemade biscuits on arrival - most appreciated. We would highly recommend... More

We stayed here for Easter 2014 and had a fantastic welcome from Craig and Helen. Although we had a room without a sea view we couldn't fault any aspect of our stay. Lovely clean comfortable room and yummy choice of breakfast everyday. Perfect base for exploring the area and lots of tips from Craig and Helen of good walks and... More

We have just returned from a fantastic short break at Babbacombe's Headland View. Great hospitality, clean and comfortable room with a superb balcony with far reaching views over the bay. The breakfast was second to none! Ideal location as we went to the theater on the evening. There are plenty of local places to eat. Would highly recommend to everyone... More

Another enjoyable weekend with Helen & Craig who make you so welcome that you want to come back time and time again. If the AA has a platinum breakfast award Headland View would be up there. Just the perfect place to stay.

We've just walked from Plymouth to Dawlish staying at hotels and B&Bs en route and this was the pick of them all. From a friendly reception, welcoming lounge tea to wonderful sea views, breakfast specials and ideal seafront location, it was what you would wish for after a tiring day going up and down the Devon clifftops. So nice to... More

Absolutely brilliant. Stayed for two nights with Helen and Craig and it was perfect. Accommodation was spotless, comfortable bed etc. Had balcony which was lovely. Whole house was beautiful and the breakfasts were superb. Nothing was too much trouble for Helen and Craig. We had a fabulous stay and would thoroughly recommend this hotel. Should have more than 5 stars.
