Apologies for the lack of social media activity last week but Olive and I were enjoying some much needed down time by the sea with Theo the cockapoo. I don’t know about you but there is something super calming about the sea and a good old blustery walk on the beach is sometimes just what you need, especially as living in busy London can get a little over whelming at times!
For our coastal retreat we escaped to the lovely Headland Hotel, located looking directly over the famous Fistral Beach of Newquay, Cornwall and with amazing views across the bay it really was the perfect seaside break.
We stayed in these super cute fishermen cottages that are part of the Headland Hotel but are located looking right out to sea and are doggy friendly which was perfect as we had a 16 month cockapoo puppy in toe. Theo in particular loved arriving to the cottages in style in his very own trolly!
The cottage interiors were really lovely and perfect for our coastal location, our favourite part was the look out tower which was over four flights up and looked out to all of Newquay’s impressive 7 beaches- such an amazing view!
The Headland Hotel itself is a super grand building dating back to the 1920s and would not look out of place in Downtown Abbey. Even though the exterior may be traditional the hotel is full of amenities that make it super modern including a fabulous spa and wellness centre. Anyone who knows me knows that I love a spa and this one did not disappoint! Olive and I were treated to a treatment each and on one rainy afternoon we made use of the lovely steam room and sauna which was super relaxing.
Thank you Headland Hotel for such a lovely few days by the sea, the cute fisherman cottages were the perfect place to stay especially with a puppy in tow. We loved looking out over the bay from our very own look out tower whilst enjoying a large mug of tea and some Cornish fudge. The food at the hotel was delicious especially the brunch served on the terrace overlooking the impressive Fistral beach and the spar facilities were just lovely. Olive and I are already looking forward to planning a return visit sometime soon!
