Storm view hotspots in Cornwall

The Headland Hotel Newquay

Storm Barney has created a stir within Cornwall today and of course everyone is eager to view the powerful tides and weather conditions, but at what cost?

Today we are sharing with you the top spots to sit back and relax while taking in the stormy views, alongside comforting treats and the safety of the sweet indoors.




Watering HoleThe Watering Hole: Perranporth

How about the only UK café situated on a beach? Sounds a little dodgy considering today’s events, but don’t worry you will be completely safe here.

This is a must see attraction located among the 3-mile stretch of Perranporth beach, surrounded by dunes and wild sea. Perhaps stay a little longer and enjoy all that The Watering Hole has to offer; live music, real ales from local breweries and of course, those outstanding views.


Godolphin Arms, MarazionGodolphin Arms: Marazion

Godolphin Arms sits among the water’s edge of Mount’s Bay upon the stunning South West coast. Recently renovated, the inn certainly matches its outstanding location with magical views of St Michael’s Mount. Why not treat yourself to a cream tea and simply sit back and watch the world do it’s thing.


Telland Beach BayTalland Bay Beach Café: Looe

Afternoon tea with a wonderful selection of cakes is what you will find at Talland Bay Beach Café. In Cornwall we love a good beach and a pasty, yes pasties – baked daily from their local bakery!

Nothing beats that combination, especially within these conditions. Apparently you would be lucky to find a better view in the whole of Cornwall, what do you think? 

Watergate Bay

Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Cornwall: Watergate Bay

Perhaps you would love to indulge in comfort food, while embracing the stormy views from Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Cornwall. Located at Watergate Bay, experience Italian dishes with a Cornish twist. A fantastic opportunity to support local apprentices creating, bold and seasonal dishes for everyone to enjoy. Simply relax and enjoy the stunning view of sand, sea and sky.

St. Ives

Porthminster Café: St Ives

Another contender for the perfect stormy hot spot is Porthminster Café, with exceptional views across St Ives Bay to Godrevy Lighthouse. This award winning seafood restaurant with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere will leave you feeling warm and cosy staying safe from the roaring winds outside.

Leave all this trouble out the door and be welcomed with hot coffee to give yourself a little inside hug.


Headland Hotel: Newquay

The Headland Hotel in a stunning location overlooking blustering views of the sea, watch it crash in epic waves as you enjoy elegant dining or an afternoon tea. Perhaps end your day on a high, while catching the epic sunset as it kisses the raging sea good night.

Where are you going to cosy on up and admire the view?
