Warm, friendly welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. Beautifully appointed and delicious breakfast freshly cooked. We enjoyed staying at Headland House with Mark and Fenella so much we would like to return next year.

Tips:

Lovely restaurants in St Ives and surrounding areas. Great coastal paths for walking and also very close to train station.

Thanks a lot for making our stay so pleasant and easy! Mark's recommendations on how to get to and from, restaurants etc were great and made it very easy to find our way around and into the nicest places in St. Ives and Carbis Bay. The room was really nice, the view from it fantastic and breakfast perfect! I hope we will be back soon. :-)

Very friendly and helpful. Beautiful accommodation. Loved all the extra touches. So much nicer than staying in a hotel. Breakfast was amazing.

Tips:

Train is a 2 min walk from accommodation and costs £2 return into St Ives takes about 2/3 mins. Or the walk along the coastal path is lovely takes about 40 mins.

The location is beautiful and the B&B is run by a very nice couple. The rooms are very nice and cosy with a beautiful sea view. In the ground floor there is a very nice dining room and in addition there is a very comfortable living room ith a bar where you can have a drink with other guests or reading or just enjoy the view.

Tips:

I was very lucky to spend my holidays with my friends who are living nearby so they show me around but the beautiful beach in Carbis Bay is near the the beautiful location of Saint Ives !!

Our stay at Headland House was absolutely wonderful. 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!!

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.

Get the train (located 30 seconds down the hill) into St Ives. £2 return!

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.

Tips:

Headland House is within walking distance to Carbis Bay beach, the coastal path and railway station. Recommend taking the coastal path into St Ives, to arrive at Portminister Beach Cafe for a late morning coffee on the beech.

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.

What a beautiful place to stay, in a fabulous location! We loved our experience at Headland House and would highly recommend to anyone wanting a touch of luxury in a beautiful setting. 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.

This was our third visit to Headland House taken over a ten year period. I just can't believe how the high standard is maintained after all those years. The decor is lovely, rooms are so clean, good quality fittings etc. Breakfast is wonderful, great choice and beautifully presented, a great start to the day.

Tips:

Loved the train which takes you into St Ives and the Coastal Walk is great too. Lots of different places to eat and drink, the Alba was our favourite this time, stunning location and amazing food.

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.

Mark and Fenella are the very best hosts you could ever hope to meet. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed like long lost relatives :-). The hotel room was modern, very spacious and well equipped. The breakfast each morning was fab, homecooked with love. And the hotel is 2 mins from the train station where you can get the train to the next stop which is St Ives...takes less than 3 mins. We preferred staying away from the hustle and bustle so Headlands is perfect. We'll be back I'm sure. Yaw & Nicola

This is a gem of a place tucked away in Carbis Bay 5 minutes drive from St Ives. Hosts Mark and Fenella know how to look after their guests and go out of their way to ensure that your stay is the best it can be. Breakfasts are cooked with care and the rooms are fresh and clean (I arrived a day early and was in a different room to the one we booked for the weekend) we will be going back for sure.

Tips:

We are at La Cassita a few minutes walk from the hotel which was lovely - Spanish restaurant with good food. We also went to the Porthminster Kitchen in St Ives and The Alba - both excellent. The revamped Tate in St Ives is a must as is the Barbara Hepworth Museum and the Leach Pottery.

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.

I would recommend this hotel to everyone , we will be returning ! Thank you for a lovely stay ! Mr and Mrs Yates

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:

Short walk to the local train station Carbis Bay (downhill), 1 stop to St Ives, 3 or 4 stops to Penzance, lovely local beach Carbis Bay (5-10 mins walk), plenty of good restaurants in St Ives, strongly advise that you book in advance of your stay. Good spa’s at Una 10 min drive/cab (£8) and The Carbis Bay Hotel (5-10 mins walk).

Our 7th visit and of course we'll be back. Beautiful accommodation only minutes from the beach. Wonderful hosts and a delicious breakfast.

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.

We had an amazing stay at Headland house, the breakfast was delicious. I'm just sad I was too full from dinner to enjoy breakfast on our second morning. The view from our room was incredible. Everything about our stay was perfect. Except the length, it should have been 3 nights minimum. Thank you both for your warm welcome and your attention to detail through out the whole place. It's perfect.

Tips:

The walk to st Ives is gorgeous, even in the rain. We got the train back one night which was fun and only £1 per person. Great restaurant recommendations by mark and fenella, especially porthmeor cafe, book in advance if you have a preference on times or table.

Had a wonderful stay, you were so very welcoming. It is very much a home from home and the furnishings and decor are beautiful. 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. La Casita tapas restaurant in walking distance was great on both occasions we went there. Lovely staff and food was delicious. Train trips to St Ives within 5 minutes rather than taking the car in.

We felt very happy with our decision for your B&B. It was so cosy and comfortable . Every room was in the best of taste designed. We felt so much welcome in your house. 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!

Always ask the landlord. He knows everything that is worthwhile visiting, especially local restaurants. Even the hints for restaurants far away were top!!

Mark and Fenella are the ideal hosts, welcoming you into a home from home - we needed an overnight stay on our way back from the Isles of Scilly and booked the Sennen Room, waking to beautiful sunny views of St Ives. A delicious breakfast which introduced us to bacon, avacado and poached egg on toast completed our stay.

Tips:

We arrived quite late, but Mark's recommendation to walk down to the Beach side Bar at Carbide Bay for fish, chips and a bottle of wine overlooking the sea was spot on!!

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 .

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!!

Tips:

Leave your car at home if you can! Carbis Bay station is only 150m walk and has also good connections to St Ives. Gorgeous walk also to Lelant (opposite direction to St Ives) and its beaches. Mark recommended lunch at Scarlet's (Lelant Saltings). Very glad he did - delicious!

Tips:

Loads of different beaches to choose from- hustle and bustle of St Ives through to the long stretch at Porthkidney. You don't need a car as there is the train, Taxi's and lots of walking. Loads of great places to eat everywhere too!

Great attention to detail. Loved the idea of the snug, complimentary port and honesty bar. Amazing breakfasts, in particular smoked salmon and advocado on toast. 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.

Both myself and my girlfriend really enjoyed our first ever stay in the area and will most certainly return in the not to near distant future and will recommend this B&b to all family.

Tips:

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!

Tips:

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.

Mark and Fenella have done an amazing job and were lovely hosts during our stay. 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!!

They have successfully achieved a very high standard of hospitality and comfort with the emphasis on the smallest detail. The excellent standard of their rooms and their outstanding breakfasts are a testament to their hard work and love for the business and the well-being of their guests. We had a great stay and look forward to our return visits.

Tips:

The Lakeside Cabin and Cafe, Lelant, St.Ives. Ideal for lunch, enormous open sandwiches and delicious cakes. The Black Rock Restaurant, Market Square, St.Ives. 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. Mackerel Sky Seafood Bar, Newlyn. Excellent seafood, relaxed atmosphere with outside seating. Bens Cornish Kitchen, Marazion. Well cooked seasonal dishes, set 2 or 3 course meals.

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.

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.

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!!

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 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.

Make use of the train, it is very handy and regular and is only £1 per person for a single to St Ives. Eat at the Cellar Bistro in St Ives at least once. Visit Fowey and the North Cliffs.

Mark's breakfast is a great start to the day and Fenella made sure everyone' s order was delivered with a smile The Hotel is in an ideal position within easy walking distance of St Ives or Carbis Bay Station. Well worth a visit and we'll be back!

Tips:

The coastal path walk to St Ives is a lovely 40-minute amble, or the train is a 5-minute hop. Outside St Ives/Carbis Bay, St Just is worth a visit and there is a lovely café on the main road at Pendeen, for a cream tea. You can't really go wrong in this area, everywhere is lovely.

Fantastic B&B with great location. All the staff are very friendly and helpful. We would recommend this place to anyone that is looking for a nice relaxing holiday. The attention to detail is what makes this place stand out. We will be booking our return visit later this year when the 2016 dates are realised. Thank you for a lovely and relaxing stay!!! (Thank you for letting us meet your frenchie) :D

Tips:

Catch the train into St Ives its a 30 second walk down from the B&B, it only costs 1 pound / person, each way. We found that the Sea Food Cafe in St Ives had amazing food at a good price. The sticky toffee pudding is the best thing I've ever tasted!!!!! If you want to explore Cornwall and have a car, we would recommend going to Lizard Beach, what an amazing place, we were very lucky and got to see a couple of seals! The view at the lizard is incredible!

We booked the headland house (Cape Cornwall room) for our honeymoon, we could not have asked for a better place to stay, the service and friendly staff was excellent. On hearing we were on honeymoon we were touched by a gift of bubbly. The breakfast was filling and served in a nice setting over looking the sea. A very nice touch was coming back each day and finding cake in the room. We have already recommended it to friends.

Tips:

The location of headland house was fantastic and the trainline to St Ives meant it was easily accessible. We walked in a couple of times on the Coastal path and would highly recommend. We visited the rum and crab shack and enjoyed a selection of spicy rums! We also would recommend blas burgers we went there on the off chance and liked the food.

We honestly could not fault you as hosts and your beautiful hotel - we'll definitely be recommending Headland House to our friends and family. Thank you so much!

Tips:

One restaurant we hadn't read about or heard about that we literally just fell into was Porthminster Kitchen in St Ives - this was the best meal we had, absolutely delicious flavours, great atmosphere and lovely staff. It's only three months old apparently which probably explains why we hadn't read about it online yet.

Tips:

Get the train to St Ives, it's a beautiful ride along the coast. Equally as beautiful is the 25 minute walk. The Tate is a must as is the Minack theatre (a amphitheater carved into the south coasts cliffs where you can enjoy plays whilst enjoying a picnic, the sundown and maybe spy Dolphins playing!) Porthmeor cafe has an unusual and delightful tapas menu with views across the beach!

It was an amazing holiday and we loved to stay at the Headland House in St. Ives. The Owners Mark and Fenella have been so lovely and helpfull and made us really feel welcomed. The B&B is wonderfully styled & decorated and you can really feel the love Mark & Fenella put into this place. We loved it there and we hope to come back soon.

Tips:

We can recommend the following restaurants in St Ives: - Restaurant Firehouse (one of the best steaks we have ever had)... - Restaurant Harbour for their Fish & chips Sight Seeing: - St Michael's Mount => please take attention to the tides (only during low tide you can walk over) - Mousehole - Porthcurno (tip: park at the St Levan's Church parking place and take the small path along the Under Hill Farm over to the great beach Porthchapel Beach over to the Minack Theatre and enjoy the wonderfull views) - Sennen Cove

This was our first stay in St Ives after a 40 year break and we loved it. The hotel is perfectly placed close to the railway station at Carbis Bay, giving easy access into St Ives without all the parking problems. The hotel is beautifully presented in a homely style. Our room, The Boat House was situated in the garden and a few metres away from the main house. It was a large room, beautifully furnished and even had a large roll top bath available. The choice of breakfast was very extensive and the cooked breakfast was to die for. Overall, Headland House is the perfect place to stay.

Tips:

We were advised by Mark to try the Beach Club on the beach at Carbis Bay, which was a good choice after a long drive on our first night.We also went to La Casita, just up the hill.The Watermill at Lelant,which is a short journey by the liitle train from Carbis Bay and Porthminster Beach Cafe at St Ives, also reached by the train.All had good food. We also went to the Minnack Theatre at Porthcurno,which was fabulous and as well as watching the play we also watched some orcas playing in the sea!

This was a trip to celebrate our 50th Wedding Anniversary and we were certainly made to feel special. The breakfasts were gorgeous, some of the best we have ever had. The rooms are of the highest standard and so is the rest of the Hotel. The owners make the effort to make your stay special and even put some wine in our room on our Anniversary. Shame they were booked up and we couldn't stay longer.The owners, Mark and Fenella, certainly go the extra mile. Well done

Tips:

We know the area well and would obviously recommend St Ives. A trip to St. Michael"s Mount, Porthcurno, the Lizard and Kynance Cove are also recommended. There are lots of restaurants for dining out and we recommend La Casita in Carbis Bay, Porthminster Beach Cafe which is a restaurant in the evenings, also recommend the Tate cafe for light lunches. Do use the small railway to travel into St. Ives as it saves taking in the car.

We loved our stay in the Mousehole room at Headland House. It had everything we needed and the bathroom was gorgeous. Mark & Fenella were both lovely and helpful, and gave us some great tips for things to do (especially the best beaches). Great location, I enjoyed being a little outside of St Ives as it felt a little more off the beaten track. Carbis Bay beach was also fantastic. Loved the cake in our room every afternoon tea, this was a nice little touch to look forward to after a long day sight seeing. We would definitely recommend Headland House to anyone wanting to stay in the west cornwall area.

Definitely try the coastal path to St Ives at least once. We found a lovely little cafe/restaurant in the town called 'the tearoom' which we sat outside with a drink enjoying the view from the bay.

Tips:

The walk through the station to St Ives was easier than the hill. We went to the Alba restaurant the food was lovely, went to Blas (burgers) I'm not a burger fan but these were delicious! We went to the little theatre to see West Side Story, it was excellent. The Tate was well worth a visit, the food is good too!

Excellent choice for walkers - in fact walking to or from St Ives is a must (stopping at Porthminster Beach Café on way!). Would say 25 mins is pushing it - we walk regularly and at good pace and it took 30 mins to get to beginning of harbour.

Breakfasts were of good quality with plenty of choice. Advice and directions were given on the eating houses and pubs locally.

Tips:

Go into St Ives on the train where possible, half the time it was free. Plenty of restaurants in town, the "things about B&B" book in your room gives quite a good list and advice. The Hepworth museum and Tate are worth a visit and not to expensive.

We preferred the lizard to Lands End its a little more "raw" and less "touristy". Kynance Cove is worth the walk it's spectacar. Porthcurno is a gorgeous sandy cove you really could be included the Med, this is next to the Telegraph museum and the Minack Theatre. Sennenis a fabulous beach for everyone and Has a fab restaurant overlooking the beach.

The welcome was fantastic and given loads of information in such a short period of time. The room was well thought out with lots of little extras. Such as mini marshmallows for a hot chocolate. Breakfast was superb with lots of choice that it never got boring.

Tips:

The train line into St Ives was great as meant we didn't need to worry about parking in the town when going for dinner. The recommendations for places to eat in by Headland House were all fantastic if struggling for somewhere to eat.

Friendly and helpful. We found the restaurant lists useful, and the ones we chose were excellent. We would have appreciated a choice of more fresh fruit at breakfast time, and possibly also porridge.

Tips:

We ate at the Porthminster Beach Café, Gurnard's Head and Blas Burgers during our stay, all of which we loved. Mount St Michael and the National Trust gardens just outside Penzance were the favourite things we saw during the day.

The hotel is perfect in every way. The hotel is located in a very quiet and peaceful area with a great view out over Carbis Bay. The rooms are comfortable and nicely furnished. Nothing is too much trouble for Mark and Fenella and they ensure your stay is perfect. The atmosphere is very relaxing and the hotel is perfect for a relaxing break. The breakfast selection is superb and very high quality. We stayed for our mini honeymoon and we will certainly return for another stay soon!

This is a great place to stay,a beautiful house with a gorgeous interior, fabulous breakfast, (thankyou for our early riser parcel on the morning we left). We really appreciated all the attention to detail, such as complimentary coffee and cake every afternoon, blankets to take to the beach, and a hugely hospitable welcome.

Tips:

Carbis Bay is lovely.....you almost don't need to go into St Ives! But when you do the coastal path is a lovely 25 minute walk or the train is a 2 minute journey. We loved the rum and crab shack in St Ives, a restaurant/bar with huge portions of lovely food

Be it a B&B or hotel, Headland House manages to combine the very best of both. Warm, welcoming owners; beautifully appointed, impeccably maintained bedrooms, lounge and breakfast room; with breakfasts that make you feel you maybe should tackle the nearby South West coast path!

Both Mark and Fenella were excellent hosts being most amiable,obliging and friendly looking after us extremely well. We were greeted on arrival by Mark who made us feel very welcome and gave us a tour of Headland House and made us aware of all the facilities and local amenities. The rooms and facilities were of the highest standard and the breakfast was of 5* quality, wanting for nothing. I would be pleased to return again and have no hesitation in recommending the Headland House to any travellers wishing to visit the St Ives area. Great time. Many thanks from the Penn gang. Excellent value and quality.

From the moment of arrival we found Mark and Fenella the most perfect hosts The staff we met were also pleasant helping to make you stay so relaxed and enjoyable The hotel is not only superbly appointed with excellent attention to detail. Breakfasts are truly excellent. There is a very comfortable patio and garden with views looking out to the sea We hope to return to Headland House and will certainly recommend it to our friends.

Tips:

Very good walks on the coastal path. Excellent beaches , one just below the hotel There are so many great places to eat nearby it just depends on your taste. Mark or Fenella have a list of great restaurants. Lots of interesting close drives nearby

Firstly, I had a lovely welcome, and all the staff made me feel at home, without being overbearing or intrusive. Next, staff were really helpful, without giving me information I wasn't interested in I already know the area and location, the b&b added to what was there with little thinks, cushions and blankets on the patio were really welcome when I sat out early in the morning having a culpa, being able to write at a table in the conservatory without someone saying 'you can't sit there its made up for breakfast'

The accomodation itself was absolutely amazing. Tasteful and spotlessly clean, it created a wonderful atmosphere. The special touches such as afternoon tea and cake, blankets draped over outside chairs to warm against any chill, little jars of sweets and fresh milk in the room, made you feel wanted and that extra thought had been given about our comfort. Mark and Fenella were very gracious as hosts and nothing was too much effort. The breakfast was delicious and there was a wide choice of exceptional quality products. When researching for a romantic break away with my husband I read nothing but rave reviews about Headland House, they deserve every one of them. I wish it was a well kept secret so that whenever my husband and I want to book it it will be available, but truth be told Mark and Fenella deserve it to be a thriving business because they have cracked the formula.

Lovely characteristic rooms and the luxury B and B is in a great location. Highly recommend headland house as the place to stay in st ives. Fenella and Mark are lovely people and breakfast is amazing. Somewhere really special for us now as we have been there twice already and will probably go next year too. Lovely curved top bath and all the details are brilliant.
