A dramatic location on the headland near Fistral Beach, with an award-winning spa and AA Rosette restaurant – includes spa access and more

Perched on a rugged promontory where waves lash the shores, this grand Victorian hotel and set of cottages provide the perfect base for exploring some of both Cornwall and England’s finest coastline, or simply staring out to sea in quiet contemplation.

The Headland overlooks the postcard-perfect Fistral Beach in Newquay. 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.

It boasts spectacular views and impressive leisure facilities. There are both indoor and outdoor pools, and the spa – Cornwall's first Five Bubble awarded – gives The Headland a contemporary feel. The Cornish salt steam room is a lovely local twist alongside the Swedish sauna, hot tub and aromatherapy showers. The hotel scored a well-deserved TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

Allowing you freedom and flexibility, the luxurious Headland cottages are built in a charming Cornish village style. 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.


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 sea or village views.


Recently awarded its second AA Rosette, The Headland's Samphire Restaurant features jaw-dropping ocean views as well as dining to die for. Drink or dine alfresco on the terrace as you take in the gorgeous sunset, and don't miss out on a Cornish breakfast or afternoon cream tea – expect finger sandwiches, generous portions of cake, clotted cream and homemade scones.


The hotel spa, the first one in Cornwall to be rated Five Bubbles, includes a Cornish salt 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.

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.
