Top 10 English Seaside Hotels by Adrian Mourby

"Opened in 1900, the statuesque Headland Hotel rises up above the Atlantic Ocean the lair of some wealthy eccentric. Not surprisingly the Headland was “cast” as Hotel Excelsior in the film version of Roald Dahl’s The Witches (1990). Angelica Huston played the Grand High Witch – despite Roald Dahl’s objections - and Rowan Atkinson played the hotel manager. During a break in filming Atkinson left the bath taps running in his room and flooded the floor below. When hotel staff banged on his door the actor replied, “Go away, I’m asleep!”. Evidently the flood wrote off much of the production team’s electrical equipment.

The hotel had a similarly dramatic start in life. While it was being built in 1897, local fishermen attacked the foundations because they claimed the hotel was being built on common land where they had dried their nets for generations. This incident became known as the Newquay Riots. Fortunately when this imposing hotel was opened in 1900 it was able to attract the future Edward VII and Queen Alexandra to stay and earlier objections were set aside.

Situated on an actual headland west of Newquay the Headland stands four square on the South West Coastal Path which makes it great for walkers. It’s also just above Fistral Beach, which houses Rick Stein’s Fistral restaurant so it’s good for bathers and gourmands too."

Dog friendly accommodation this summer by Dinah Hatch

"For those with a dog with a maritime penchant, we suggest the simply lovely Headland Hotel and Spa in the lovely town of Newquay. Long morning walks or evening strolls along the beach or up on the headland make this serene spot perfect for canine lovers. And the hotel is more than geared up for you too. You will receive a welcome letter detailing everything you need to know about staying at the hotel with your dog, including information on the coastal paths. Expect lovely squidgy bedding, a chew stick, scoop bags and a bowl, for a small fee. You won’t want to leave this Cornish dog haven after one night listening to the waves as you and Fido drift off to sleep…"

Five of the Best Hotels for Surfing by Suzi Dixon

"You could argue that Newquay is England’s capital of surfing, with a thriving nightlife to complement the adrenalin-filled days on the beach. The Headland Hotel is a four-star surfers’ paradise, boasting a dedicated surf school. Surfing is Therapy is run by British Surfing Association certified coach and lifeguard Ben Ridding; through him, the hotel can arrange surf lessons and much more besides, such as coasteering, body boarding and even ‘Junior Baywatch’ for budding lifeguards."

Five of the Best Christmas Hotel Breaks by Kate Simon

"The Christmas lunch at this hotel by the seashore in Newquay may be traditional but its menu is a cut above, rolling out the (Cornish) turkey with cranberry and pancetta stuffing, venison and boar chipolatas and Kahlua gravy. Check in for the four-night “Christmas” break, from 23 December, and you can discover the curious tradition of Headland Horse-racing in the ballroom on Boxing Day."

Top Ten Pet Friendly Hotels by Ursula Hirschkorn

"Every doggy guest checking in to The Headland Hotel is greeted with a welcome letter explaining the hotel’s pet policies and encouraging them to get out and explore the miles of coastal paths around the hotel. They are also provided with soft bedding, a chew stick, scoop bags and a food bowl. Dogs are charged at £15 per night."
