Overlooking Newquay’s world-famous Fistral Beach – and with a wealth of dog-friendly rooms and cottages to choose from – The Headland is the perfect destination for dog-owners and their canine friends.
Upon arrival at The Headland, dogs are greeted with a welcome pack including a water bowl, blanket, food and treats, along with a dog passport containing handy information about dog-friendly walks, restaurants and activities in the local area. Fistral Beach is just a stone’s throw away and is dog-friendly all year round, meaning there are hours to be spent running along miles of golden sands, paddling in the sea and exploring the South West Coast Path.
After an energetic day out in the fresh air, dogs will need a cosy hotel room or cottage to unwind in – and The Headland welcomes dogs with open arms for just an extra £24 per night. The hotel’s four-star bedrooms range from snug interior rooms with all the home comforts, to coastal rooms with far-reaching sea views and suites with private balconies.
Those looking for a self-catering option can stay in one of The Headland’s five-star cottages, which have large open-plan kitchens and generous living areas. There’s always a spot in front of the log-burner for a four-legged friend, and the private outdoor spaces are perfect for stretching legs, whilst taking in stunning views of the Cornish coastline.
There are two award-winning restaurants in which to dine – the two AA rosette awarded Samphire restaurant and the more relaxed Terrace – both of which enjoy stunning views of the Atlantic and serve locally sourced Cornish produce.
If you’re looking to relax and unwind, visit the five-bubble spa, which offers a range of luxurious treatments, plus a Cornish salt steam room, Swedish sauna and hydrotherapy pool. Or, enjoy a surf, SUP or coasteering lesson with The Headland’s on-site surf school.
Rooms at The Headland start from £130 per night on a bed and breakfast basis, while cottages start from £110 per night. Dogs are welcome in The Headland’s hotel rooms and cottages for an extra £24 per room per night.
