A dramatic location on the headland near Fistral Beach, with an award-winning spa and AA Rosette restaurant – includes spa access, self-catering cottage options and more
Perched on a rugged promontory where waves lash the shores, The Headland overlooks the postcard-perfect Fistral Beach in Newquay and comprises a grand Victorian hotel and set of cottages - providing the perfect base for exploring some of both Cornwall and England’s finest coastline, or simply staring out to sea in quiet contemplation. Winner of two prestigious Gold Awards at the Cornwall Tourism Awards and Gold and Silver accolades at the South West Tourism Excellence Awards, this family-run hotel dominates the coastline and the original building featured in the memorable film adaptation of Roald Dahl’s The Witches. The hotel scored a well-deserved TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
Splendid rooms are spacious and traditional, exuberating luxury. You can expect traditional luxury at its best in the Coastal View rooms, which have views right across the coastline and towards Trevose Lighthouse. Crisp linens and plush furnishings underpin the luxury experience alongside satellite TV and Wi-Fi access, as well as a separate seating area, work desk and modern bathroom.
Cosy in the winter and refreshing in the summer, the One, Two and Three Bedroom cottages are airy and painted in fresh, seaside hues. Each has an excellent, open-plan working kitchen, a log-effect gas fire and lots of space. Outdoor decks and living areas provide a lovely touch, with scenic village views. If you opt for a cottage stay, you'll still have access to all the hotel’s facilities, and you can mix self-catering with meals in the restaurant.
A holder of two AA Rosettes, The Headland's Samphire Restaurant features jaw-dropping ocean views as well as dining to die for. Drink or dine al fresco on the terrace as you take in the gorgeous sunset, and don't miss out on a Cornish breakfast or afternoon tea – expect finger sandwiches, generous portions of cake, clotted cream and home-made scones.
The hotel spa, the first one in Cornwall to be rated Five Bubbles, includes a Cornish salt steam room, a Swedish sauna, aromatherapy showers and a hot tub. A range of treatments are available here too, from marine-themed rituals to ELEMIS massages – true relaxation and bliss.
The Headland sits proudly overlooking Fistral Beach, a 20-minute walk from Newquay train station. Newquay Golf Club is a swift three-minute drive away, should you fancy polishing your swing.
Travelling with kids?
Family-friendly facilities include a kids' menu, highchairs, babysitting services, a kids' adventure playground, child swimming times (7.30-11am and 3-6pm) and in-room child equipment (stairgate and cots). One and Two Bedroom cottages have double-ended baths. Cosy in the winter and refreshing in the summer, the five-star cottages are airy and painted in fresh, seaside hues . Each has an excellent working kitchen, a log fire and lots of space.
