Stylish, elegant and unique, The Headland is a luxury hotel with private cottages set on an exclusive clifftop overlooking Fistral Bay. It offers the perfect blend of discreet English ambience and decadent four-star hospitality. Individually-designed luxury hotel rooms and suites with ocean views; rosette-worthy dining and indulgent pampering and wellness at The Headland Spa. All brought together by a team dedicated to ensuring a comfortable stay. The Headland is one of the most understated yet personal four-star spa hotels in Cornwall.
Our spacious rooms and luxury suites offer an air of calm. They are designed to make you feel perfectly at home, yet utterly indulged, all at the same time. We believe that the key ingredients for a good night’s sleep are big comfortable beds, suitably-squashy pillows, luxurious bed linen… and breath-taking sea-views.
Our five-star self-catering cottages offer flexibility, privacy and coastal-chic interiors. An idyllic place for a romantic retreat and a favourite with families seeking a relaxing break, you can enjoy a little more seclusion with unlimited use of our facilities.

Overlooking Fistral Beach, this stylish Victorian hotel features a Five Bubble rated spa, surf school, approach golf course and a wonderful sea-view terrace. The Headland Hotel is a 10-minute walk from Newquay centre. The impressive leisure facilities include indoor and outdoor swimming pools (outdoor pool only open during summer months). The spa includes a Cornish salt steam room, a Swedish sauna, a hot tub, and aromatherapy showers. Treatments by Elemis, Thalgo and OPI can be booked in the state-of-the-art ash wood panelled rooms or work out in the fully equipped Life Fitness gym. There are two restaurants, and the hotel has been awarded an AA rosette. Guests can enjoy fresh local seafood in the formal candlelit restaurant or in the more relaxed Terrace which features an outdoor veranda with stunning beach views.
