Haven description

Holiday home
The Haven commands stunning views over the harbour at Porthleven and out to the sea beyond. This spectacular Edwardian house is just a few minutes walk from the beach and makes a perfect holiday home for family and friends. Porthleven is famous for its eateries and for being the most Southerly harbour; visit Rick Stein's or one of the other fine restaurants which adorn the harbour, there is something to suit all tastes and budgets. Take a stroll around the bespoke shops, including handmade jewellery, glassware and galleries and why not pick up something tasty in the delicatessen or bakery on your way home. For those who like fishing there are trips offered out of the harbour and an excellent bait and tackle shop on the harbourside. For those that enjoy an inspirational scenic walk, the south-west coastal footpath is on the doorstep, en-route to legendary Lands End with its dramatic coastline and varied attractions in all weathers whatever the season. Nearby is the market town of Penzance where you can take a day trip on the ferry to the Isles of Scilly. As well as Porthleven beach you could explore the nearby beaches at Praa Sands and Perranuthnoe. The Lizard Peninsula is also on the doorstep, so take a tour to discover amazing coves, cute villages and some incredible coastal scenery. Refurbished with comfort and style, the accommodation provides three bedrooms and one bathroom for up to six people. The Haven boasts superbly presented accommodation over two floors. Fabulous views of the sea from all the windows at the front of the property. A wood burner for fireside gatherings in the open-plan sitting room and a generous dining area make a great social space. If you're not dining out, cook up a feast in the well equipped kitchen. On the second floor there are two generous bedrooms and a bunk room, all indulgently restful, a chic family bathroom and an extra WC, all ensure creature-comforts are a given. The raised front terrace makes for a delightful space for al fresco dining or an evening tipple, watching the boats glide in and out of the harbour.

Cornwall's visitors are constantly tempted back to the beautiful coastline, tiny fishing villages, hidden coves and the world-class surfing. Whatever the reason, Cornwall has long cemented its place as one of Britain's premier holiday destinations.

We come frim Germany and we have been to The Haven for the second time.. What a great place to stay. The house was very clean and very well aquiped. The only thing we have to complain is the furnishing of the terrace. The wooden seat furniture is uncomfortable to sit on. We would recommend to change it to modern lounge equipment with comfortable cushions. Everything else was perfect.

The Haven was in a position in the harbour, that gave dramatic views, very close to the sea.. This was a bit of a shock to start with! The sound and feel of the wind was amazing, but the strength of it could have been difficult for a frail person. We did see a lady fall and bump her head as she moved across the road, to allow a car to pass. The steps were deep, especially to the front of the property. They would benefit from being lit, especially as we arrived in the dark. The food shops were adequate for the week, however we ate out at every meal almost, in a different venue each time, around the harbour. The cornish pasties were lovely. There were galleries, clothing ,gift and craft shops. There were 3 things in the house that would have made our holiday more enjoyable. 1. No draughts coming through all the front windows.( the lounge and 2 bedrooms) 2. A shower that had a continuous flow of water, and didnt need resetting. 3. Being asked to vacate the house by 10.00am, and the cleaner arriving at 9.30am. We have loved Cornwall and will return soon. Linda Paul.

The house is lovely - homely but has everything you could possibly want in a holiday home.. The views are amazing and the property is beautifully situated for the shops and pubs

This is a lovely property but is now beginning to look and feel tired.. It is well designed but needs some TLC!

We were concerned as this cottage was double booked for our week but i only found that out when i rang the housekeeper who thought she had already spoken to me and given them the key code already.. I dont understand how that could have happened amd it did worry us until we were told we would still be staying there - not good Just ref the house, one suggestion would be to have a parasol outside, the table has room for one and most other houses on the row do have one

It was a wonderful cottage and everything we've expected was fulfilled.. The house was very clean and we enjoyed sitting outside to relax and Enjoy the wonderful views to the sea and the harbour. It would be perfect to place a sun umbrella on the terrace.
