We had a first floor en-suite bedroom with a balcony offering superb views and enjoyed starting and ending the day here with a cup of tea - so relaxing. The owners were most welcoming and friendly, nothing was too much trouble for them and so our stay was made thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing. Our full English breakfasts were delicious everyday....

Our hosts, David and David, have recently taken ownership of this lovely home high on the cliff, across from a small park. They were very accommodating, and their attention to detail was noticeable. The breakfasts were excellent, with toast served hot and wrapped in white linen. We were able to park onsite, which is rare in the UK. Our room...

Wow, what an amazing review and thank you ! We love the view too and this is the best time of year to enjoy it. Our only regret is we don't get much time to enjoy the views from the balconies. Breakfast does appear to very social at Headland View, as guests are getting to know each other as the...

Thoroughly recommend! Spotlessly clean and comfortable. Genuinely warm welcome from proprietors. Lovely cooked breakfasts. Beautiful sea views from front room balconies. Only stayed 2 nights. We were really sorry to leave and wish it had been longer.

Stayed for a week beginning of August. Lovely b&b, rooms decorated to a high standard and the view from the front rooms are amazing. Just a little disappointed there was no breakfast specials as mentioned on the website. However, the fried bread was the best I've ever had!
