Headland House is a real 'find,' and one I'd thoroughly recommend to anyone looking for a "quality" place to stay in Carbis Bay / St Ives. From the warm welcome on arrival, to the excellent rooms (we had a room 6 - commanding view across Carbis Bay towards St Ives harbour beach).........and a superb cooked breakfast. We've visited St Ives...

In fact the price was a snip, given the service and the quality, and I very...

Mark & Fenella Smith are the most amazing hosts. This beautiful boutique hotel is situated in a fantastic location. The hotel surpasses all on their approach to hospitality. The walk into St.Ives is along the coast and views are divine. Thank you Mark and Fenella for 3 days of luxury and relaxation.

This was my birthday treat from my two sisters and what a treat. As soon as we arrived we were warmly welcomed by Fenella & Mark. I was shown to the Net Loft which is beautifully decorated, comfortable with extra special details and spotlessly clean. White fluffy towels, bathrobes, great lighting, mini fridge with cooled water & fresh milk for...

This is a very convenient location for St Ives (travel one stop on the train for £1 to save trying to park! Or take the lovely coast path.
