Another fantastic stay in our favourite cottage. We come every year, sometimes twice & cant fault it. The cottage is always spotlessly clean & has everything you need. Our dog loves the stay & welcome treats thank you. We would like to say a special thanks this time to Arthur who looked after us in the bar after coming in... More

My husband and I and our daughter, then 1, stayed in this hotel a few years ago. I am just now writing a review because honestly we have good intentions and they don't always happen. Our stay at The Headland will be with us for a lifetime. It was something out of a fairytale. The hotel is in immaculate condition... More

I booked a Headland full afternoon tea for 7 to celebrate my sisters 50th birthday, and we were not disappointed! The food was presented perfectly, tasted great, endless tea or coffee, and the service was perfect. One party member is gluten and dairy intolerant,(which I had flagged beforehand) and I had been assured that this would not be a problem.... More

This is a fabulous hotel with views to die for. I recommend a Fistral View room. Wonderful beach views in the bedroom and the bathroom windows. Lovely decor and bed very comfortable.
