Spent another three nights at this super hotel. Received a lovely welcome from Mark and Fenella and stayed in Porthcurno with a fantastic view of Carbis Bay and St Ives beyond. Excellent breakfasts and delicicious afternoon cake. Fenella prepared a "to go" breakfast on my last morning because I wanted to leave early. Yet again, highly recommend this delightful hotel...

Just returned from a fortnight in Cornwall and spent 2 nights at this fabulous small hotel. Mark and Fenella have created a warm, inviting and thoroughly top class establishment in Headland House. Everything was superb, from the room to the best breakfast we had during the 2 weeks! The afternoon cake was also very welcome. The house is well situated...

Just returned from 3 nights at Headland House and will definitely be back one day. Short break started off a bit miserable with the weather but it brightened up and the weather was glorious in the end - did not want to leave.

July 31 & 1 Aug 2013. Stayed for 2 nights & didn't want to leave! Fenella & Mark were perfect hosts, advising the best restaurants & ice cream parlours -although beware of marauding seagulls on the beach- I had mine whisked away by a seagull in full flight!! The room was lovely with large en-suite & roll top bath- the...

We stayed here in late July during the UK heatwave. It was a great location for Carbis Bay, just a few minutes away. St Ives isn't far either, and you can get the train in (they're every hour). Usually you don't have to pay either because there's no machine at Carbis Bay and the inspector on board will issue you...

This was our 3rd visit in a year, and this time we stayed in the Porthcurno room on the 2nd floor for 3 nights. Amazing views, and I think my favourite of the 3 we have stayed in. We were lucky with the weather (stayed the 2nd week in June) and we ventured onto the beautiful Carbis Bay beach. There...

My boyfriend and I went to Headland House in March to celebrate our anniversary. We couldn't have chosen a better place. Mark and Fenella really know how to run a boutique hotel; we were well looked after from the moment we booked right up to when they waved us off! The room was very comfortable, amazing views (we were in...

We stayed at Headland House at the end of June, it was brilliant. The B & B itself is very sweet and the special touches of afternoon tea, hot chocolate in the room made it feel very special. The beach in Carbis Bay was stunning, perfect for early morning walks. Fenella & Mark were very warm & welcoming and made...

“We loved our 'cottage' which was separate from the actual house, but you can choose to stay in the house on a first floor level which would give views of Carbis Bay, rather than garden views on the ground floor.”
