The Headland: The five-star base for the ultimate experience holiday

Monday 29th Jan 2024 |

From learning how to catch your first wave to hunkering down amid fierce Atlantic storms, The Headland is the perfect place to stay if you are looking for experiences on the coast.

The five-star Cornish hotel and spa is brimming with activities that run all year round and capitalise on the changing seasons, ensuring all members of the family can find something to engage their adventurous side.

The resort houses an on-site surf school, The Surf Sanctuary, in the western corner of the building, facing out onto the world-famous location beach, Fistral Beach.

The team offers lessons for beginners, family sessions, stand-up paddleboard tours, snorkel adventures and coasteering for braver souls, all of which can be organised through the surf school directly.

For those looking for more tranquil waters, the luxury resort’s Aqua Club is the perfect spot to spend a day dipping in and out of the six indoor and outdoor pools.

In 2023, The Headland Spa celebrated its tenth anniversary with an array of treatments and packages on offer to ensure guests can enjoy pampering during their breaks.

The historic hotel also works closely with Newquay Marine Group, which provides tours of the local coastline and the marine life that occupies it with pick-ups available from reception.

For those looking to be adventurous, hotel guests can rent e-bikes to explore a host of places across the stunning north coast of Cornwall.

During the summer, Cornwall Segway also offers a thrilling course in the grounds of the hotel, where riders can learn how to operate segways before testing their skills on the coastal terrain.

Guests may choose to treat their pallets by sampling the hotel’s three dining options. Marvel at the beautiful Restaurant RenMor, which replaced The Samphire in early 2023 to complete a multil-million pound renovation. Alternatively, sit with a drink and watch the waves roll in from The Terrace or experience a taste of the Mediterranean in The Deck.

There is plenty to do at The Headland long after the summer has ended, most notably in the form of the resort’s storm-watching experiences. The seasonal package allows guests to witness the drama up close whilst staying snug in the informal luxury of the hotel.
