7 Things To Do With Your Week in Cornwall
1) Wake up slowly.
Savour the fresh Atlantic Ocean air. Enjoy the calming sound of the waves lapping outside against the craggy coastline. It’s an unfamiliar novelty that you’ll miss when you’re back in city life. Our 5* Self-catering cottages by the sea (below) are perfect for a private coastal getaway right by the sea, for couples, friends or families. Or let us look after you with our Hotel’s 5* service in one of our individually designed luxury hotel rooms.
2) SUP, Surf, Coasteer.
With a coastline of around 300 miles and beaches facing every point of the compass, Cornwall offers lots of options for water-based activities. Newquay, in particular, is the seafaring heritage of Cornwall; from the ‘lost harbour of refuge’ at Little Fistral to the ‘smuggler’s haunt’ and of course, Newquay’s working shellfish harbour. SUPing around the coastline on our doorstep is not only a delightful way to spend a hot summers day but a beautiful way to discover our coastline’s history.
Why not try your hand at surfing? With Fistral Beach right on your doorstep – one of the world’s top surfing destinations, backed by high cliffs and sand dunes – it’s the perfect spot to score some waves.
A little more adventurous? The rocky outcrops next to The Headland make the perfect playground for an exhilarating session of coasteering. Swim, climb and jump off rocks. A great option for those adrenaline seekers.
Dom Moore from the Surf Sanctuary is handily situated at The Headland for all your water-based activity needs.
3) Tantalise Your Taste Buds.
You’ll be spoilt for choice with the delicious delicacies to enjoy here at The Headland. Including our double rosette-awarded Samphire Restaurant with an unparalleled ocean vista, the Terrace – alfresco style dining overlooking Fistral Beach, and our Spa lounge. Here’s a few delicacies we know you’ll love.
- Whole Cornish Lobster. Home to arguably the best seafood in the UK, Cornwall’s fishing industry enables you to enjoy exceptionally fresh seafood from sea to plate in a matter of hours. Read our Lobster & Crab blog here.
- Our Famous Afternoon Tea. With strawberry cheesecake tarts sitting perfectly alongside the lemon macaron meringues, coffee walnut honeycomb cakes, chocolate delices with raspberry middles and Pimms shots. And that’s just the top shelf! Let’s not forget our finger sandwich selection and Headland scones with Cornish clotted cream and Cornish strawberry jam.
4) Explore The Eden Project.
Discover the largest indoor rainforest in the world, feel the tropical heat, and gaze at the awe-inspiring enormous trees towering above you as you venture deep into the vast indoor jungle of the Rainforest Biome.
Meander through the landscapes of the Mediterranean, South Africa, California and Western Australia and enjoy the sweet aromas of herbs and take in the paradise of brightly coloured flowers, gnarled olive trunks and bountiful vines in their Mediterranean biome.
Did you know, 100% of food waste is composted and used to feed the plants? That’s the Eden Project for you. Sustainable tourism at its prime, this is a must-see on your visit here.
5) Pamper Yourself.
Deep at the heart of The Headland Hotel lies the entrance to a world of balance, pampering and wellbeing. The first ‘Five Bubble’ rated spa in the region, The Headland Spa is one of the most respected yet undiscovered spas in Cornwall. With views of the Atlantic Ocean from the Spa lounge, take time to relax in our Spa’s tranquil environment. Why not enjoy a Relaxation Escape Rhassoul to rejuvenate your skin after a day at the beach?
6) Find the ‘Lost Gardens Of Heligan’
In 1992, The Lost Gardens of Heligan were restored from beneath decades worth of undergrowth. The mysterious story of the gardens is fascinating and they are well worth exploring; discover the ancient woodlands rich with wildlife, the romance of the Victorian Productive Gardens and Pleasure Grounds, the exotic jungle and the intriguing history surrounding the gardens.
7) Walks in Cornwall
With miles of coastline comes miles of breathtaking clifftop walks. Right on the doorstep of The Headland, you have Fistral Beach and the west Pentire to explore. Though if you are more of an avid hiker, there’s plenty of hikes you can choose from on South West Coast Path‘s website. If you’re a Poldark fan, you can plan your walks around the Poldark film set locations.
