We visited Headland House last year and again this year, we love the location its within walking distance to Carbis Bay and the train station is minutes down the road that takes you into the town. The B&B is spotless and so cosy. We stayed in the Mousehole room last year we loved it and the Porthminster Ocean King room this year, that has beautiful views of Carbis Bay. Mark, Fenella and their staff couldn’t be anymore accommodating! We absolutely love it here and will continue to return every year :)

Amazing place, lovely, clean house and rooms. You can tell a lot of passion goes into the design and upkeep of the place. Mark and Fenella are very lovely and knowledgable about pretty much the whole of Cornwall so ask for any recommendations on places to go and restaurants to eat at. They are super accommodating, I had a video interview whilst between hotels and Mark offered a great plan B of using the house if I got caught out at all.

Tips:

Get the train to st.ives and leave your car at the house. £2 return, cheaper than parking and much less stress!

Beautiful bed and breakfast On the ball with keeping you safe regarding the COVID 19 virus Extremely clean and great ideas to keep you comfortable and confident throughout your stay Staff go above and beyond very friendly and approachable Fantastic breakfast and quirky ideas for afternoon tea ..... cake left for you for your afternoon tea snack

Tips:

Just a 30 minute walk Soaking in the view into St.Ives and for the tired legs why not try the little train journey £1 each way and takes just a couple of minutes Plenty of places to eat but would recommend booking before you go out ....... also if you fancy trying the local bars be prepared to queue. Quirky little shops again be prepared to queue on busy days Fantastic place beautiful

Great location and our room was self contained. The staff were lovely and very friendly. Would definitely recommend The Headland House Luxury B&B.

Tips:

The Carbis Bay Hotel 1894 restaurant was lovely but pricey. Paddle boarding just £10 each for 1 hour at Carbis beach. The train into St Ives is a minute or two walk away and takes just 3 minutes and costs £2 for a return ticket, great value but beware of the hill back up to the B&B, it’s a killer. Lots of eateries in St Ives. Book ahead of your trip if you can

This is the second year running we have stayed at Headland House and we’ve not been disappointed either time. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated, the owners are a very helpful nice couple and the breakfasts are gorgeous. It’s been a bit different this year with Covid but everyone still made our stay just as good, roll on next year

Tips:

St Ives is a really nice town, if you’re going to drive there, best go early. Trains run every 30mins and there are also regular buses which is probably an easier way to get into the town. St Ives is well worth a visit if you like boat trips, nice food and art/quaint shops to wander round. St Michael’s Mount is worth a visit and not too far away, try to do the walk on the causeway though as it’s really good.

A lovely B&B.The accommodation is of a very high standard.There are little extras offered such as cake and sherry left for you in your room. Headland House is in a good location. The owners are most helpful and friendly. The breakfast was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Tips:

This B&B is near to a lovely beach. There is a train station a few minutes walk away with a frequent train service to St.Ives. The Tate Gallery in St.Ives and The Barbara Hepworth Museum are definitely worth a visit. The Porthminster Beach Cafe in St.Ives serves Cornish seafood and other delicious dishes and has lovely views across the beach.

Our room ‘Cape Cornwall’ was wonderfully light and spacious. The complimentary daily cakes/pastries and sherry are a lovely touch and breakfast was excellent with a great choice of options. Mark and Fenella are wonderful hosts and very knowledgeable of the local area. We’re already looking into when we can return!

Tips:

Excellent place to stay, close to a wonderful beach, easy access to St Ives via the regular train, only £2 return or £1.30 if you have a railcard and runs every half hour. Too many places to name to eat but I am sure the information you have been given by the proprietors will have the main places to eat, be sure to book in advance.

During the current times of Covid make sure you pre book all your days out in advance. Pre book your evening meals. We did and were pleased as we saw lots of people struggling to get booked in or find a table. Many restaurants were booked up for weeks ahead.

A wonderful hotel, with the loveliest owners. Mark and Fenella make it feel really welcoming. Felt really safe with all the Covid measures they have put in place. Breakfast is plentiful and relaxed, the rooms are beautiful. We will be back!

Tips:

Everything! Lovely meals at Porthmeor Beach Cafe and also The Beach restaurant. But you must book, well in advance. I booked 4 weeks ahead. Due to limited space because of social distancing (which the restaurants do very well) it is very difficult to get a table, even just for a drink. Another shout to The Brewhouse - it's worth the climb!!

Without doubt this is the best guest house we have stayed in. From the moment we arrived and throughout our stay we felt welcome and comfortable, everything was perfect. The breakfast offer was wide, perfectly prepared and presented. The rooms were spotless and well decorated, the bed fresh and comfortable, a good nights sleep guaranteed. Our hosts were always attentive, nothing was to much trouble. The small extra touches like finding a cake in our room on our return every day was delightful. Thank for an exceptional stay.

Tips:

A safe sandy beach nearby and St Ives a 30 min gentle walk or a 10 min coastal train ride away, everything we needed was easily accessible.

La Casita was a fun local restaurant which is easily walked to. Otherwise you are catching the train to st ives or driving to outlying village pubs, the best of which we visited was The Halestown Inn.

The breakfasts were particularly a high point offering a wide range of choice including a smoothie shot which was delicious. The quality as also exceptional. The owners and staff were very attentive and helpful, with nice little touches such as providing fresh milk in the fridge and complimentary cakes each day. The room was clean and comfortable with a lovely view over Carbis bay. We will definitely be back.

The view from our room was just stunning - overlooking the beautiful Carbis bay. We will be back and will absolutely recommend your gorgeous B&B to others!

Tips:

5 min walk to the beautiful Carbis Bay beach The train is also a 5 min walk away and then a 5 walk journey to St Ives. There is a beautiful walking route from the B&B to St Ives which took around 40 minutes - definitely worth doing!

Stunning view of Carbis from our 2nd floor room Mark & Fenella made us so welcome, and the staff were professional and friendly.The facilities including a well appointed outside terrace, a 'snug' with a well stocked honesty bar. a slice of cake each left in the room in the afternoon, all made our stay extremely enjoyable. We very rarely stay at bed and breakfast accommodation as we prefer hotels, but Headland house redefined 'bed and breakfast' for us! We will definitely stay again when we are in this area of Cornwall and would highly recommend Headland House to all.

Tips:

The location is spot on as the walk down the hill to Carbis bay is only 5 minutes, as is the walk to the small train link that takes you straight in to St. Ives in less than 5 minutes as well. You can also take the small train in to Penzance, and pick up a local bus to Mousehole or Marazion, both stunning locations.The Ship Inn at Mousehole is a spotlessly clean pub,and the lunch is great

Superb place with charming rooms! Lots of little extras provided such as sweets and cake in the room each day. Very comfortable and one of the few places we’ve stayed where there is decent water pressure in the shower. Breakfast was outstanding! Delicious and lots of choice. The owners are so friendly and we felt very welcome. We will revisit!

Tips:

Porthmeor Cafe is a firm favourite and the surf school is great. Long walk into St Ives but scenery and views are breathtaking. Walking boots or good trainers essential for the walk. We’ve stayed in St Ives a few times but it’s much noisier than Carbis Bay. If you want a peaceful break with some enjoyable walking and a cosy, comfortable and luxurious place to stay....then Headland House ticks many boxes.

Everything was absolutely faultless. We stay in lots of different kinds of accommodation and feel we know quality and customer service when we experience it. Mark and Fenella should be very proud of their business. The hotel is stylish, comfortable and welcoming. Right from the first enquiry, the confirmation email and Mark’s personal welcome we were given so much useful information which made our two days work like clockwork. The room was clean and bright and so cosy. The breakfast was one of the best. Thank you so much for making our first wedding anniversary so memorable.

Tips:

Mark’s recommendations for restaurants is very good. The train down and back from the centre of St Ives is regular and only £1 each way. St Ives is busy and noisy, the location of the hotel gives peace and privacy.

A too short stay in your lovely B&B! Thank you for your warm welcome, your precious advice. We highly recommend this little gem. Our room was really nice. Merci Mark and Fenella, it was a fabulous weekend! ... and I hope I will never lose my phone on the road again

Tips:

Top: the beach within 5 minutes’ walk, be careful, it goes down and down and so ... on the way back, it goes back to peak! Top: go to St Ives on foot from the hotel through a well-maintained trail. Return quietly by train. Ultra top: All restaurants recommended by Mark: The Porthmeor Beach Cafe for its tapas, its views and the friendliness of its service, and also the Porthminster Cafe that we really loved from the meal to the view from our table and the sympathy of the service If you do not book, it was our case, be careful, go early to have a chance to have the last table (18: 30-19: 00). Top: take your car to stroll through Cornwall, beware the roads are narrow but it's splendid. Do not miss the superb Minack Theater and land's end. Merveilleux séjour à vous.

While we expected the beautiful room and lovely accommodation, the friendly reception and consistent care we received from our hosts exceeded all our expectations! Mark and his family introduced us to the region, and ensured our stay was as good as it could be, even going above and beyond to help us return a forgotten phone to London!

Tips:

We definitely recommend the hike from Carbin bay to Zennor (through St Ives and along the coast), but make sure to bring water and good walking shoes. Don't forget to visit the Minack theatre, but make sure there's a good play on!

We had a lovely break at Headland House and was able to rest and relax. The Hotel is very comfortable and beautifully furnished - a home from home! After a day of sight seeing etc we were welcomed every day with cake in our room to have with our afternoon cuppa - lovely touch! There were lots of little touches available in this hotel which made us feel very welcome and added to our holiday experience. Breakfast was yummy!!! Great selection of foods available to suite everyone’s taste and the special everyday shows that the proprietors really wanted to provide the best possible experience and stay at the Headland. Highly recommended!!

Fenella and Mike were wonderful hosts. They recommended many local things to do as well as stopovers on our onward journey. The accommodation is five star- extremely comfortable beds and the decor is so tasteful. The breakfast was delicious with a wide choice of both hot and cold delicacies. I would highly recommend this B and B as a wonderful place to stay when visiting Cornwall and wish we could have stayed longer !

This was our second visit to Headland House and it was just as pleasurable as the first! The rooms are well appointed and comfortable. Mark and Fenella make very warm and welcoming hosts. Mark is always full of ideas of places to visit and Fenella provides the important stuff; tasty breakfasts! The scenery is beautiful and as it's a stones throw from St Ives, it makes the perfect base for a relaxing break.

Welcoming hosts who were efficient, friendly and informative. I would certainly recommend this B&B to all friends and family. This is a lovely old house which has kept all it's charms. Beautiful architecture,lovely original features, light and airy rooms which were decorated to reflect the period of the house. Our room had wonderful views of Carbis Bay, over to St Ives. Our room was very comfortable, wi-fi,TV, tea/coffee/hot chocolate/fresh milk/ice cold water/and even afternoon Cake! Excellent en-suite facilities.The choice at breakfast was comprehensive, and offered a wonderful selection of cereals, juices, fresh fruit,jams,croissants,freshly cooked items - i.e. combinations of smoked salmon - avocado - poached eggs. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

Tips:

Headland House is very fortunate in it's position, as access into St Ives is so easy. A five minute walk down the hill takes you to the railway station which has a regular shuttle service to and from St Ives, roughly 5-10 minutes. This service costs £2 return. There is a footpath from the same area which is a very pleasant walk of around 45mins. Our hosts supplied us with a local map, and marked places of interest, which proved very useful for searching out the Tate and other galleries in the town, as well as Restaurants, coffee shops, and other local amenities.

Informative, friendly host and hostess who helped us with our luggage. Nice to have a bottle of wine available. Good view from bedroom 1. We were 'upgraded' to the bigger bedroom (probably when our host saw my size!) Delicious breakfast. Extremely clean and well decorated unlike many places that show wear and tear.

Tips:

Our host listed places to eat for the evening but we felt too tired to go into St Ives and we went on his recommendation to their nearest restaurant, La Cassitta (Spanish) just up the hill from Headland House and it was good.

It was our first visit to Headland House and hopefully there will be many more. It was a delightful house with beautiful views of the bay. Mark and Fenella made you feel so very welcome in their stylish home. Wonderful breakfast and especially liked the cake in the room in the afternoon! Definately a Luxury Bed and Breakfast.

Tips:

The Restaurant in Carbis Bay on the beach is very nice and if the weather is warm you can sit outside and take in the beautiful bay. If you want to travel into St. Ives the train is very convenient 1 stop from Carbis Bay or alternatively if the weather is good walk the coastal path into St. Ives which has wonderful views. The Porthminster Restaurant as you come into St. Ives on the path is exceptional but booking is advised. All in all a very relaxing place to stay.

Everything was spotless and owners & staff were all very friendly. You can see they have spent a lot of time and effort to make the place an excellent base for anybody visiting the area. It has the feel of a larger boutique hotel, but with the friendliness of a B&B. Breakfast was as good as it gets. The only negative was the noise from the guests walking around in the room above ours (We stayed in the Boat House).

Tips:

This is an ideal B&B for visiting the area. The Railway station is a couple of hundred yards away with the journey to St Ives taking about 5 mins or if you prefer, you can walk it in less than half an hour. The Barbra Hepworth museum is well worth a visit.

We had a fantastic stay at Headland House. The location is great, tucked away in peaceful Carbis Bay but with beautiful sea views. It's also very easy to get into St Ives, or out and about to explore this part of Cornwall. Mark and Fenella provide such a warm and friendly welcome, the breakfasts are amazing, our room was lovely, with homemade cake in the afternoons and a glass of port at bedtime - we didn't want to leave!

Tips:

Take the coastal walk into St Ives, it's beautiful, or catch the train, a very short and fun journey. If you're going to the Minack Theatre, Mark and Fenella have put together a 'Minack Pack' to make things more comfy. They also know the area inside out, soak up their advice!

We really enjoyed our stay at Headland House. Fenella and Mike were very friendly and attentive hosts and made sure we were very comfortable- all the staff were lovely. We loved the Heligan garden room with its little table outside but the seaview room on top floor had the most stunning views of Carbis Bay. The beds were beautifully comfortable and breakfasts delicious- great choices.Spotlessly clean and a very relaxed vibe. Watch out for the snug bar-I almost didnt bother going out to dinner I got so snug!

Tips:

Recommend Porthminster Kitchen for modern cornish cuisine. Heligan Gardens is well worth seeing. St Ives was a bit busy for us but it was August- id love to visit when a bit quieter.

The rooms were exceptionally clean with luxurious linens and beautiful little touches such as lovely toiletries, refrigerated water, sweets, and daily homemade cake. Everything was beautifully presented and of the highest quality. We loved the location, which was so close to the rail station, and also easily walkable to nearby St Ives. The highlight would have to be the exceptional breakfasts. Beautiful fresh ingredients, amazing variety, and superbly tasty. Also special mention the wonderful friendly staff who were so welcoming and helpful.

Loved every minute of our stay. There was nothing to find fault with. The room was fantastic, breakfast was wonderful and to relax and enjoy it with a sea view was the perfect start to the day! We felt genuinely welcome at Headland House. This was a special treat to celebrate myself and my best friend turning 40 and we couldn't have spent it anywhere better.

Tips:

La Casita, the tapas restaurant, is just a couple of minutes walk from Headland House. It was so good we ate here twice during our stay! Booking is essential though, as they get very busy. The Boat House, the superior room we stayed in, is the ultimate in luxury. We paid a little more for this but were so glad we did. Headland House is in Carbis Bay, just 1 stop along on the train line to St Ives. It's only £2 return for the train and well worth it. No need to worry about parking in St Ives! The trains are really regular, however check the timetable carefully as not all stop at Carbis Bay.

Absolutely stunning location, just a 3 minute walk from a beautiful beach. Really friendly and welcoming staff- the owners are lovely and couldn’t have been more helpful. Full of great suggestions for things to do and places to go nearby. Charming little touches like blankets for the outdoor seating area and cake in our room on arrival make this b&b extra special! Thanks for a great stay, we’re recommending you to all our friends- Joe and Megan.

Very comfortable B&B in an excellent position for Carbis Bay and St. Ives (one stop on the train from the nearby station). Mark and Fenella have thought of lots of touches to make guests feel welcome including cake in your room every afternoon when you return from a day out. Breakfasts are excellent.

Headland House is perfect. Everything about our stay was fantastic. We were greeted by the lively and very knowledgeable Mark, who gave us tips about the area/where to eat etc. The guest house is impossibly stylish and homely, everywhere you look there were gorgeous touches. Our room was lovely, again, it was something out of a magazine. Everything was perfectly placed. The best thing about our room...the view of Carbis Bay. The sash windows framed the view of turquoise seas. In the morning, we met Fenella. She was so warm and welcoming. Breakfast was nothing short of amazing. Fruits/ cereals etc laid out beautifully with a menu for hot breakfast on each table. The conservatory offers, again, lovely views of the bay whist you eat your breakfast. There were many other touches that I wouldn’t want to spoil for other guests, but this was probably the best place I have ever stayed. We looked at many other guest houses and hotels and I’m so glad we went with this one.

Tips:

Speak to Mark and Fenella, they gave us fantastic recommendations for both nights/days we were there. I was initially not sure whether we should stay in Carbis Bay - thinking it might be a bit far removed from St Ives. I’m so glad we stayed in Carbis Bay. The beach is unbelievable and a couple of minutes walk from the guest house. It was not crowded with people either (St Ives harbour beach was lovely, but packed). There is a gorgeous little train right next to Headland House that gets to you St Ives in 3 minutes. We also walked it one day, it took only 25 minutes and was a lovely walk! I would recommend to anyone that they should stay in Carbis Bay instead of directly in St Ives...furthermore, stay at Headland House. It was a little more expensive than the other places we had stayed, but it was so worth it.

Mark and Fenella were very helpful and friendly. On our arrival, Mark gave us some tips on good places to eat, and told us about the St Ives Bay train which makes it much easier going into St Ives. The room was lovely and spotlessly clean. Loved the little touch of coming back to homemade goodies after being out for the day - the rocky road was a particular favourite. Breakfasts were very good - can recommend the smoked salmon and scrambled egg on toast. Would definitely recommend Headland House to others.

Tips:

Can recommend 'Becks fish and chip' restaurant. Also had a nice meal at 'The Cornish Arms'. A visit to Porthcurno beach and The Minack Theatre is a must (check when it's open in between performances).

We had a fantastic stay at your beautiful guesthouse, and were made to feel so welcome from day one. From the great view from our room, to the comfortable mattress and pillows, to the little extra touches such as the tasty cake each day, and all the helpful advice as to where to go, places to eat etc. Thank you both so much!

Tips:

A must is the train to St Ive`s - very scenic, or you can walk it in around 25 minutes. There are plenty of places to eat and drink in St Ive`s - we particularly loved the Sunday carvery at The Lifeboat. For fish and chips, we couldn`t fault Beck`s ( other choices available such as steak, gammon etc), and its only a 15 minute walk from Headland House.

Tips:

We visited porthminster beach cafe for dinner this visit and sat on the terrace, delicious food, great service and an unspoilt view of the sea. You'll need to book. It's right by the St Ives train station stop. The Harbour fish & chip shop is always worth a visit, delicious. The walk into St Ives is really nice and doesn't take too long, good to walk off the ice creams or pasties! St Michaels Mount is only 20 minutes by car and a lovely morning out. Time it well and you can walk the causeway. Lands end is also with a visit, we drove to Sennen Cove and walked a small section of the South West Coastal path, its then free to see Lands End rather than go into the attractions.

I liked the little touches like a slice of cake when we got back to our room in the afternoon and the honesty bar was great for when we sat in the garden in the evening after a meal out. We will tell all our friends to stay there if they are in Cornwall. Thank you for looking after us.

Tips:

Beautiful room overlooking the bay and very tasty breakfast. Steep hill down to the beach so make sure you have some energy left to get back up after a day on the beach.

As we were on a hiking trip on SWCP we found in the „Headland House“ a great starting point for our tours. We enjoyed the calmness of your place though it was possible to reach the busy St.Ives within a short time (by walking or by train which can be reached by 5 minutes walking time). Be sure that we will recomend your house to our friends as well!

Headland House is faultless. From the beautiful decor through out the hotel to the delicious breakfasts to the gorgeous view from our bedroom, everything was perfect. Mark and Fenella made sure our stay was as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

Tips:

Seal Island is fab All the restaurants are great but Porthmeor kitchen and Porthmeor cafe are two of the best Beautiful walk along the bay cliff tops if you turn right out of Headland House

One of the best B & B 's we have stayed in , wall to wall perfection , beautiful well-maintained house and gardens , haute cuisine , superb location , and 5 star hospitality . Our hosts could not have been friendlier , or more helpful . We felt like writing THEM a thank you letter !

Tips:

Not one disappointing meal , but the highlights were the Porthmeor Beach tapas , the Porthminster Beach sea-food , and the understated , but exceptional , Alba . The walk to and from St Ives is a joy on a sunny day . The Tate is not at full capacity until October 2017 , so not much bang for your buck as yet , but the new building is wonderful . People watching in St Ives harbour is highly recommended .

The service and welcome we recieved was superbe, the staff were very friendly and made us feel at home. The breakfast choice was excellent better than any hotel I've stayed in.

Tips:

We really enjoyed the costal walks And the views, the weather wasn't great but good enough to sit on the beach for a couple of hours to read. The local restaurants were good but after our breakfast we found we weren't eating lunch until late afternoon which meant that we didn't want dinner just a snack. If your looking for a relaxing place to go for a couple of days this is the place.

We loved the attention to detail, hot choc with marshmallows, afternoon brownies and the gorgeous decor throughout. Would definitely return and recommend to friends. Thank you very much!

Absolutely beautifully calm B&B, which can not help you enough to enjoy your stay. From added details of cake in our rooms every day, to books, umbrellas and beach equipment to borrow if we needed it. Breakfast to brilliant with lots of choices and different options available rather than the standard.

Tips:

Costal walk from Carbis Bay to St Ives is just under 2 miles and is well worth a stroll - lots of breathtaking costal views along the way!! Otherwise the train is only just down the hill!! Highly recommend Peppers Italian restaurant, Firehouse Bar and The Lifeboat Inn in St Ives!!

Complimentary afternoon tea was well received. We stayed in room 2 and the view of the sea was stunning. Lovely shower and comfortable bed.

Tips:

Ideal for coastal walks such as a walk into St Ives. Quiet location with a couple of restaurants only a walk away up the road. The Gannet Inn in particular was a lovely evening meal, cooked to perfection. Its best to book a local restaurant to avoid disappointment. Location is ideal for local train access and seaviews.

I would strongly recommend booking reaturants before visiting as st Ives gets very busy and booked fast!. The B&b carrot cake however goes down a treat! (Says my girlfriend). And we will be coming back again due to the fantastic food, great hosts and superb location. 10/10!

Loved location-very easy and quick to get to St. Ives (by train-bus-car or even walking) but at same time very calm setting! Beautiful decor, great shower, very professional service, generous delicious breakfast! Definitely worth a stay!

Tips:

Their Explore List is a good one! We loved Porthminster Cafe and Beach Rest and Porthmeor Beach Cafe (read their suggestions - a Pod at Porthmeor was so fun! We were in heaven with Blas Burger works - had the classic burger and the haloumi one. I would come back for both! We were just 2 adults who love hiking, so we enjoyed hiking on foot path near Minack Theatre and going down steps from theatre (no need for tickets!). Amazing view and experience! St Michaels Mount was also definitely worth it (for kids too for sure) even if more touristic. Its worth it! Went by car... Leach Pottery not worth it at all as it really is just an artists studio...Barbara Hepworth Museum is worth a visit if you like her work. Must hear the tour. Makes a diff. Tate was closed. Walk around st ives exploring streets and coastal views. We stayed 3 nights! Perfect!

Carbis Bay is a must, and a walk away. The beach is so clean and perfect for children. We parked our car, not touching it until we returned home. St Ives is a walk away, or the branch line train, which runs every hour at a great cost of £1 means traffic queues and parking nightmares are a welcome relief.

I would have liked to have seen the sea from.our room but as Basil would have said " it's that bit between the land and the sky!!! " Breakfasts were delicious and you could survive all day on them!!! Ps I love black pudding any chance of that on the breakfast menu next time

Tips:

Carbis Bay is a perfect spot for visiting St Ives and the beaches and paths nearby - a train journey that is only a pound and the most endearing staff!! The Alba is a must for cocktails and the Porthminster Beach restaurant was the place for a very special meal at a beautiful location on the beach itself. Can't wait for my next trip!!

Imaginative cooking, with friendly service. Porthminster Kitchen, The Wharf, St.Ives. Great location overlooking the beach with a first floor terrace. Good eclectic menu with subtle flavours.

Fenella and Mark are excellent hosts and made us feel very welcome on our second stay. The accommodation is both luxurious and comfortable and the breakfasts are nothing less than perfect.

Tips:

Use the local train to get to St Ives, the station is 5 minutes walk from Headland House. A return ticket only two pounds. Porthminster Kitchen, Porthmeor Café, No57 Fore Street are all great places to eat

Everyone went out of their way to ensure that we had everything we could possibly want down to "after sun" lotion in the fridge should we need it! The breakfast food was excellent and the afternoon cake was a very nice and welcome touch. More friendly and welcoming hosts would be hard to imagine.

Tips:

Take the train everywhere - it is an excellent service and cheap at half the price. La Casita restaurant at the top of the road is well worth a visit as are The Firehouse and the Sea Food Cafe on Fore Street in St Ives. The folder provided by Mark & Fenella in the room gives even more choices of places to eat.

Perfect place to stay after our wedding. It was an oasis of calm away from our massive families! Room was lovely with great attention to detail. Bed was very comfortable. Things like the little cappuccino and hot chocolate sachets were a nice touch. Garden in Heligan room was wonderful. Little snug lounge and honesty bar was also a very nice touch. Best B&B breakfasts we've ever had! Breakfast room itself was beautiful with amazing view of the sea. Mark and Fanella were both very welcoming, friendly and accomodating.

Tips:

Perfect spot straight after getting married. Bring your wetsuits so you can go for a swim in Carbis Bay!

We loved our stay with Fenella and Mark - would definitely return to be spoiled by a most welcoming couple such as them again. Great choice of delicious treats for breakfast, delightful little bar/snug for retiring to after a hard day at work or pleasure, mixing with other guests. Perfectly situated outdoor area in the sun, as well as a private space attached to each room. And each room beautifully appointed with the cosiest of beds, furniture and tasteful fittings.

Tips:

We loved the walk into St Ives, and for those less able to go the distance, the train is an excellent option only a few minutes away. Lots of nearby restaurants with good food and great views, and just walking around the bays and streets is a delight.

The owners are lovely and they have a real eye for detail. We are already planning a return trip. No need to think twice about booking Headland House ... you won't be disappointed.

Tips:

Book restaurants as early as possible. The Beach Cafe is great for lunch, a drink, dinner or sundowner cocktail. Spanish restaurant La Casita (don't be put off by its decor) has a great food, a good buzz and well worth a visit.

Sam and I had an amazing time staying at Headland House. We were welcomed by Mark who gave us lots of recommendations and ideas of places to eat and drink. The accommodation was fantastic and we loved our room, the decor was lovely. The small extras like daily cake was very appreciated! Breakfast with a view of the sea was topped off with delicious breakfast choices and a daily smoothie shot. We were so lucky with the weather and we cannot wait to come back.

Tips:

Porthminster Kitchen was fantastic as was the rum and crab shack for that more chilled feel. You cannot beat a lunch at Porthemor Cafe on the beach looking out onto the beach! Cocktails at Alba we would also highly recommend.

My wife and I loved our stay at Headland House. It's an absolutely beautiful hotel, much smaller than we've been to before, but it was much more personal and comfortable. Mark, Fennela and Lisa could not have done more for us while we were there. They are all so helpful and friendly and have excellent knowledge of the local area. We sincerely hope to return there in the future!

Tips:

Restaurants - Porthmeor Beach Café was our favourite - you have to do a pod! Porthminster Beach Café was excellent, The Hub had incredible burgers and drinks and if you just want a hot drink, some cake or particular some ice cream then you have to go to Moomaid in St Ives.

Apart from our confusion about parking arrangements, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had booked one of the smallest rooms but to our delight, we were immediately upgraded to one of the bigger rooms at no additional cost. Attention to detail was second to none and the owners were most welcoming. Even the weather was on our side, which was an added bonus........ The B & B has certainly earned the 'Luxury' descriptor, top marks to Mark and Fennella!

Tips:

Mark had recommended No 57 on Fore St as a great venue for dining out so we duly booked a table for last evening (complete with the best harbour view), however late in the afternoon we received a text of apology from the owners who were unable to honour our booking due to some bad family news received that afternoon. We therefore had to look for somewhere else at short notice and decided on The Rum And Crab Shack, which Mark had also mentioned was a good place to dine. BUT we were sadly disappointed with the fayre (maybe it was our bad choice - mgt's reaction to our complaint was that lobster was not currently in season so the fact that the lobster had next to no meat on it should have been expected!). Suffice to say, we will not be rushing back. However to end on a high note, we enjoyed pre-dinner cocktails at the Porthminster Kitchen, overlooking the harbour and at the end of our evening managed to walk back to Gonwin Manor cottages at Carbis Bay following the coastal paths, no mean feat given our consumption of that last bottle of wine!!

We had a fantastic stay at Headland House, the room was luxurious and very clean. Service was great, we both felt very welcome and breakfast was lovely - everything you could want was provided. The location is perfect, quiet in the evenings and with lovely views over St. Ives.

Tips:

Exploring the Godrevy coast - lovely bit of coast path with dramatic cliffs and hidden bays.

Fenella and Mark are the perfect hosts. Nothing was too much trouble especially as my wife suffers from Dementia and needed help and support, which was offered in abundance by Mark and Fenella. They are lovely people and we couldn't have asked for a more relaxing and beautiful place to stay.

Tips:

Make sure you take the beautiful coastal walk from Carbis Bay to St Ives. Its quite a walk but the train journey back is worth it just for the views. There are plenty of places to eat but I would recommend Porthminster Beach. The food is excellent as are the surroundings, although you will need to book well in advance.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Location was excellent. The room had all the luxuries of a boutique hotel. Recommend the Boat House. Breakfast was one the very best we have had. Excellent range and the taste and presentation were superb.

Tips:

We recommend you use the St Ives branch line to travel into St Ives. The quantity of trains were great. The beach cafes at Porthgwidden, Porthminster and Porthmeor were fabulous. Recommend you book restaurants in advance and you certainly will be spooky for choice. Live music in pubs was a nice end to the evening as was the honesty bar at the Headland.
