Headland House is stunning. The house itself oozes style and character and lives up to its status as a boutique hotel.
My husband and I have recently stayed at Headland and could not fault it in any way. On arrival there was complimentary homemade cake, tea and coffee and a welcome that was detailed but not overbearing. Our room was lovely with a perfect sea view, spotlessly clean with all essentials available even down to hot water bottles in the wardrobe if the sea air turns nippy.
The breakfast was amazing, every possible taste available, the presentation was amazing, service was prompt but again not overbearing. Individual glass pots of home presented yoghurt with passion fruit, lavender syrup, rose petals etc.. waffles with crème fresh, fresh fruit compote and local honey are divine to start your day or a full hardy full English.
The décor is perfectly tasteful and Fenella has an eye for detail and attention, really have found our perfect get away haven and will stay here always.
The local Carbis Bay train is a two minute walk in front of the hotel and goes into St Ives on the hour for a return ticket costing just £2. This save s driving, parking and parking fees especially at peak times when parking can be congested. Be warned though that the train returning back to Carbis Bay only stops for trains departing St Ives at half past the hour, we were caught out on this the first night, but taxi's are readily available and friendly and cost around £7 from St Ives.
Fenella suggested visiting Fowey and even though this is approx.] a good 50 mins drive it is well worth it, very pretty, cute shops, including lovely places to eat. The Dwelling House Crab sandwich and herbal teas are amazing, well worth a visit.
I would highly recommend Headland.
