When it comes to holidays, planning one with a toddler is probably the most stressful task for mums (and dads). We actually booked 2 weeks in France for the end of July and I am already worried about the journey, how Zachary will handle it etc... He will be turning 3 this year and he hasn't been abroad yet, so I am excited and stressed at the same time. We are also considering going for a short break within the UK and it will definitely be a seaside location.
Despite living in UK for 7 years, I still haven't been to Cornwall and I really want to change it. The Headland Hotel in Newquay seems like a nice place to book and it's Victorian style makes it look really interesting. The beachfront is on the hotels doorstep, which is always a bonus. There are 96 ensuite bedrooms to choose from, all with flat screen TV's, complimentary wi-fi, seating areas, and work desks, making it perfect for bloggers :) I cannot live without wi-fi, even when I am on holiday.
The interior isn't your typical modern style, but it looks elegant and quirky at the same time, with pops of colour too add more character to the bedrooms. The hotel offers in-house dining and you can choose between an informal atmosphere on The Terrace or fine dining at The Restaurant.
There is also an award winning spa for you to enjoy, with two swimming pools (indoor and outdoor), a steam room, sauna, a hot tub, aromatherapy showers and a range of spa treatments. Complimentary access to the gym would be perfect for all gym bunnies and after your workout, you can indulge in healthy meals and smoothies in the Spa Lounge. Sounds perfect to me! The town offers a big selection of shops, restaurants, bars and clubs and it is just a 15 minute walk away from the hotel.
If you prefer more privacy and self-catering , you can also book one of Headland's gorgeous 5* cottages. They look like the perfect family getaway where you can enjoy the sunset from a private balcony and go for a walk or run along the beach. I think this option would be more suitable for my little family, but I would consider staying in the main hotel as well.
