“Special Memories from The Haven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013 for a stay in April 2013
6
people found this review helpful

We stayed at The Haven with a large group for a 40th birthday celebration and was really impressed with the quality of the property - the space (four very large ensuite bedrooms), comfort and upkeep were all first class.

The spacious dining room, living room, kitchen and conservatory areas were perfect places for us to get together at meal times and for drinks, but the house is so big and comfortable that everyone had their own privacy because the rooms are so large and comfortable.

The garden was lovely (and very well maintained) and was a really nice outlook from the downstairs rooms and our bedroom.

We really love walking and enjoyed a fantastic circular walk from the property; we highly recommend walking to the spectacular coastal scenery at The Rumps and Pentire Point, and taking in the beautiful beach at Polzeath where we sat and watched the surfers.

The Haven is a lovely house which has some special memories for us.

“Spacious, comfortable, spotless & a great location - deal for a family holiday”

My husband and I have recently returned from a family holiday spent at The Haven. We found the house to be spacious, comfortable and warm and the four large bedrooms all en suite which is really handy when you are part of a group. The kitchen was extremely well equipped and spotless. The house is set in a lovely garden which is quiet and relaxing. We thought the location was great and the beach a short walk away through a golf course. We really enjoyed our stay and hope one day to return - we also appreciated the free wi fi.

“Polzeath great place, house great facility will be back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

I have been Comming to polzeath for many years; the surfing, cycling the camel trail enjoying a bottle of fizz at the camel vineyard, padstow and the seafood restaurant, beach volley ball golf and more.
The Haven was the best house we have stayed in so far being all en suits there was no need to draw straws for bedrooms and ample space if you wanted to do your own thing. The house is immaculate and felt like a home from home. Pleanty of crockery and cutlery to so you were not constantly having to recycle bits. The weather was good so we spent a lot of time on the patio BBQing

“A lovely house in a lovely quiet location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

people found this review helpful

With four large bedrooms, all en suite, this was a perfect house for three generations. The large kitchen, diner, sitting room and conservatory ensured ample space for everyone on rainy days. Fortunately we were blessed with fine weather for the latter part of our holiday and were able to use the lovely garden and barbecue. The area was extremely quiet, which suited us very well, and we enjoyed some excellent meals at the golf club. We would be happy to return to The Haven.

“A perfect base for a Cornish Holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

people found this review helpful

Our whole group was pleasantly surprised by the 'The Haven', we knew it ought to be good but it exceeded our expectations.

There is plenty of space for all and having an ensuite to every bedroom and a family bathroom was ideal. The house is well appointed and has excellent facilities which made our stay very enjoyable, even the weather played its part and we were able to make use of the barbecue and outdoor furniture on several occasions.

Polzeath beach is only a few minutes drive away and Rock with its ferry to Padstow being a 10 minute drive. Basically 'The Haven' is ideally located for exploring the north Cornish coast line.

“Great large family or group holiday home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

people found this review helpful

We visited during August and were lucky to have excellent weather all week. Our group consisted of two families of four and we found the house was perfect and suited our needs very well. Lots of space, very clean and everything we needed was easy to find and use. The clubhouse/sports centre has a very good resturant and is just 5 minutes walk away. The local beach at Polzeath is great for kids and body boarding / surfing. Good local walks and the foot ferry to Padstow from Rock is a nice trip. Highly recommended!

“Fantastic holiday home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2011 for a stay in June 2011

people found this review helpful

The Haven is a spacious well apponted house with 4 large bedrooms all with en suite. We were an adult party but it would also suit families. The beds can be used as twins or moved together to make a double which gave good flexibility. Loved the proximity to the beach and caught the ferry over to Padstow to enjoy the excellent restuarants, shops and art galleries.

The garden at the Haven is private and was great for a BBQ. We had lovely weather but could see how cozy the stove would be in the living room during colder weather. The open plan kitchen/dining area was great for a group with a large table for convivial suppers.

It was all tastefully decorated and well equipped. We will definitely be back for another visit.
