A fantastic Mudeford sunset from the balcony decking
Is that a photograph or painting?
There is always something to watch out on the water. Here is Richard returning from fishing.
The balcony decking area overlooking Christchurch Bay ...
... and in the distance Christchurch Priory
A quiet spot to shelter from the sun if you need to but with the same fantastic views
A live working quay with lobster pots all lined up ready for the season to start ...
... and beyond the quay you have sight of the Isle of Wight
Sunset across Christchurch Bay. The end to another perfect day
The door to your holiday stay at Little Haven
Complete with under balcony parking for two medium sized cars
A kitchen with a view ....
... and what a view it is
An extremely well appointed kitchen. Perfect for preparing those locally caught fish for dinner
Whilst your expectant diners watch on. No room for Alfred here!
... perfect for breakfast ...
... perfect for a special evening of dining ...
... and now relax in the comfortable lounge ...
... with a wood burner for those chilly evenings or a family Christmas
The entrance hall and stairs to kitchen, dining and lounge
The sumptuous master bedroom with patio doors to a view across the bay
Is that a fishing boat I spy?
... and plenty of room for all your clothes.
Relax after a hard day's fun in the master ensuite
The second double bedroom with patio doors to the south
Every bedroom has a modern well equipped en suite
A lovely twin room with sea views and en-suite
And even a utility area to wash the sand and salt out of your clothes
Tara-Mae had a great time ..
.. and so did Derin

Is that a ghostly Mudeford crab in the background?

Hi Clifford
Thank you very much for your very kind review, it is appreciated by the owners and all of us at Mud Huts.
I must admit it had not occurred to me what a fantastic place it was to bird watch from but very obvious when thought about so thank you for highlighting this.
The great fishing from the quay, local beaches and beyond I am more familiar with and hope you managed to bag yourself a supper or two!
We look forward to you coming back to see us again soon.

“Incredible setting”
Reviewed November 13, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Lovely location for a holiday, with incredible views from the terrace, which is a great spot for dinner and a glass of wine.

We were there with 4 adults and 3 kids and there was plenty of room both in terms of the living space and the bedrooms. The house is well equipped and nicely done up, feeling luxurious but with loads of character as well.

There are great local attractions (especially the beach and crabbing) and we definitely recommend Highcliffe Castle where we had an unexpectedly fun afternoon on a wet day.

We’ll be back!

“Idyllic spot to watch the world go sailing by...”
Reviewed November 13, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We stayed here over the August bank holiday 2017 when the weather was perfect and the house provided a stunning setting to watch the activity in the quay. The place could not be better located for catching the ferry to the wonderful beaches on the spit; for watching the bustling activity of the seaside or - best of all - for watching the boats going in and out of the quay. My favourite part of our trip was having kids in bed, watching the sun go down and the boats coming in. The stunning balcony provides the best view of all of it. The cottage itself is comfy and very stylishly done, with all mod cons. Overall, a fantastic trip.

“We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Little Haven and Mudeford Quay”
Reviewed July 15, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Little Haven.

We were a group of two families, 2 x couples and 1 x 22 month and 1 x 17 month toddler.

The bedrooms were very comfortable, all with ensuite facilities and very nicely designed.

The upstairs was a great open plan space, perfect for cooking while the kids played and for family dinners. The kitchen is well appointed and has everything you need.

The wow factor of this house is the terrace, which is on the edge of the quay. We all enjoyed a drink on the terrace while watching the boats, canoes and jetskis passing.

The location of Little Haven is second to none, everything you need is walking distance, there are two excellent restaurants on the nearby beaches the Noisy Lobster and the Beach House (via the ferry on the Sandspit)

The ferry to Christchurch is a lovely trip out, we lunched at the Boat House and hired a boat and went further up the river.

The house is not secluded and the terrace is not private, there are people crabbing all around you but that is part of the fun and the charm, don't stay here if you don't want to see other people or be in amongst the action!

The only slight downside for us was noise from people walking on the upstairs living quarters affecting the downstairs bedrooms, the main master and one of the twins. Due to the nature of our group we had toddlers and one parent getting up early, allowing the other to sleep in, those in the bedrooms concerned could hear the footsteps of those above, the same applied if someone went to bed before the others. It was probably enhanced by the nature of our group and the fact that toddlers get up early, it did not ruin our holiday at all it was just a slight annoyance for the person trying to catch the extra sleep!

Ian was a great host and went above and beyond the call of duty. He saved a recipe one night by giving us his flour and another night rode to the local store for us.

Overall an excellent holiday and we certainly hope one day we can return to this fantastic house and location.

Thank you very much for your review, it is appreciated and the feedback most welcome. I have to say that no one has commented on the floor noise before but when the property is next empty I will 'have a listen'.

It was a pleasure having you all to stay and we are so pleased you made the most of the area and the setting. You certainly seem to have fitted a lot in to your days.

Please do come back to see us soon. I'll even pump the tyres upon my bike in readiness :-)
