Storm watching in Cornwall is a truly awe-inspiring spectacle. There are few places in the UK that are as exposed to the full fury of the big winter weather systems that roll in off the Atlantic Ocean. Along with the gale force winds, come the huge waves that have shaped the stunning coastline over the centuries.
And as the white horses of the waves crash and pound on the rocks, guests will be cocooned in a four-poster, watching the drama.
Perched on a north Cornish cliff top, surrounded on three sides by the Atlantic Ocean, The Headland in Newquay (home to Cornwall’s big wave surf spot) is the ideal base for walking and exploring the rugged coastline.
Throughout the winter months many of the beaches and walking routes are deserted, so visitors get beautiful landscape without the usual summer crowds.
It is exhilarating to escape the daily routine for a few days to walk on clifftops above thundering waves, or tramp across moors and mountainsides in buffeting wind and swirling mist.
Visitors can hide out in one of the 5-star self-catering cottages, with sweeping views of the ocean, and enjoy all the luxury services and facilities of the 4-star hotel on the doorstep next door.
There’s a flat screen TV, DVD player and IPod docking station, plus free superfast WiFi
Arrive to a welcome tray with tea, coffee and biscuits and even a pint of milk for a well-deserved hot drink after a long journey. Sink into the bath, curl up in front of the log-effect fire, or pad around in a waffle-towelling robe.
Alternatively, guests can wrap themselves in a blanket, grab a Daphne du Maurier novel and watch the weather from a window seat. Then retire to a four-poster, made up with feather duvets and pillows, at the end of the evening.
Next day guests can walk on the golden sands of Fistral Beach, or follow the famous South West Coast Path.
Inside The Headland hotel, three restaurants facing the sea offer traditional Cornish cuisine while Cornwall’s first ‘five bubble’ rated and most luxurious spa with a leisure area is open until 10pm each day.
The spa has six luxury spacious treatment rooms, a couples treatment room with its own hydrotherapy bath and a rhassoul mud room. The adjoining ‘Leisure Area’ includes a heated pool with a jet stream and bubble seats, Swedish sauna, Cornish salt steam room, aromatherapy showers and hot tub. In addition, The Headland is also home to a state-of-the-art Life Fitness gym.
Book three nights or more in The Headland Cottages and guests will be treated to one of the following; a two-course dinner in The Restaurant for all members of the party, or a 30- minute Spa treatment per adult.
If guests stay three nights and opt for the complimentary, relaxing 30-minute Spa treatment choose from a back, neck and shoulder massage, a mini facial, or a shape and polish for your hands or feet.
To take advantage of this fantastic offer, quote ‘Storm Watching’ at the time of booking.
