In tandem with sustainability


A luxury Cornish hotel has teamed up with an electric bike rental which enables guests to explore the beauty of the county on two wheels.

The Headland has joined forces with Penzance-based Ebike Cornwall to give visitors a different and ecofriendly way of seeing what Cornwall has to offer.

Veryan Palmer, director of the five-star hotel in Newquay, said: “We’re thrilled to take receipt of the e-bikes because our beautiful county is also a very hilly one, so it will enable guests to cover many more miles when they are out and about exploring the stunning scenery.

“The bikes also provide fantastic wellbeing opportunities for our staff and they are an important element of our agenda for sustainability and climate protection.”

Ebike Cornwall will supply, maintain and insure the bikes for use by hotel staff and guests over the age of 14. It provides a full package of helmets, locks, panniers and pre-planned routes and itineraries from the hotel.

Ebike Cornwall operations director, Shawn Gimbert, said: “We are delighted to have joined forces with The Headland. Cornwall is an extraordinary place and we are pleased to be helping the guests discover what makes it special in a more sustainable way.”
