This was my first ever visit to Cornwall and I am regretting the missed opportunities to have visited in the past. Headland House is simply perfect - such a relaxing environment and we spent happy hours wrapped in cosy blankets outside just enjoying the views, despite the cool spring breeze. The rooms are all fantastic - crisp white sheets and most rooms with a great view. The snug bar is a perfect area to come back to after a long walk and relax over a cup of tea and the complimentary carrot cake! Hard to beat all round.
Mark and Fenella are the best hosts ever and the breakfasts just superb - a great start to your day when your plans are to walk and explore the surrounding areas - a good excuse to indulge in great poached eggs with all the trimmings! The location is perfect - a short stroll to the local train which takes less than 5 minutes to take you into St Ives which is full of beautiful little streets and shops to explore and excellent restaurants. If you want to be more energetic, the walk into St Ives takes less than half an hour, depending on how much time you take to dawdle and look at the stunning views along the way. The scenery looks as if you are in the Caribbean - the sand is golden white and so clean, as is the water. The local beach is a 5 minute walk downhill (slightly longer uphill!) but just beautiful to walk along and so unspoilt. There are lots of local walks along the stunning coastline.
Mark and Fenella are great at recommending what to do and what to see, and which restaurants to visit - whether you want something simple and easy, or the Porthminster Cafe, where we all sat one evening watching the sun go down over a deserted beach and clear blue waters - we could not believe we were actually in England.
If you are planning to visit this part of Cornwall, pay Headland House a visit - you will want to go back time and time again.
