"We had a wonderful holiday as ever!  Haven Cottage perfect as always.  Wine and chocolates go down a treat!  Thank you.  Until next time!"


November 5th  -  John & Margaret - Wales

"We had a fantastic week here at Haven Cottage.  Coastal walks to Loe Pool + Praa Sands in unexpectedly warm November temperatures of 18C!  We also enjoyed trips to Minack Theatre, Mousehole, Lamorna and Truro Cathederal.  Had a lovely birthday lunch at Rick Stein's too.  Haven Cottage is perfect, spotlessly clean (thank you Vicki!) and so well equipped.  And thank you for the wine and chocolates.  We will definitely be returning in the future, best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in."

 July 9th - Linda, Colin & James - Liverpool

"Our first time at Haven Cottage + Porthleven.  In fact we haven't  visited Cornwall for 31 years!  We've had an absolutely brilliant time!  The area is fantastic.  Porthleven is a great base to visit other places.  The cottage was beautifully clean (thanks Vicki).  It has everything we possibly needed.  We were especially grateful for the two bathrooms!  Visited Mousehole, Marazion, Minnack Theatre- great plus the Lizard.  We will be back!  Thank you for making our week so restful."



June 6th - Sue & family

"Another lovely week here.  This is our third consecutive year as we enjoy it here so much.  Wine and chocolates were nice.  Cottage is always clean.  Many thanks Carole, Trevor & Vicki." 



 April 2016 - Tom & Linda, London

"Another perfect holiday in Haven Cottage only this time it was even better being here for two weeks.  Neither the cottage or Porthleven ever disappoint - it's like home only better with these beautiful views.  Weather's been mixed but it hasn't mattered as we've still managed cliff walks in the bracing air!  As usual we don't want to leave and cannot wait to return.  Thank you." 


March 2016 - Frances & Owain, Bristol

"As Haven 'regulars' this cottage is home from home.  There are so many thoughtful touches.  Vicki as usual, leaves everything sparkling clean.  Can't write anymore as I'm off to the harbourside to check out today's catch and buy off the boat!"


14th Nov 2015 - Steve & Jacqui, Somerset

"There are really no superlatives to add about this lovely holiday cottage, or about Porthleven as a whole.  Except to say that (as has been highlighted constantly since 2008 in this visitor's book) what a clean, well presented, well appointed home from home this place is, in the most beautiful location Cornwall can offer!  We shall return and can recommend Haven Cottage unreservedly!" 


31st Oct 2015 -  Dave & Jackie, Staffordshire

"Really enjoyed our stay.  A very homely cottage, very clean and well kept, lovely position, beautiful walks straight from the front door.  Very easy to get around and visit other areas.  Really enjoyed our stay at Haven & Porthleven, thank you." 


20th June 2015 - Mark, Maddy & Becky

"Once again we had the most marvellous time at Haven Cottage.  The weather was very kind.  The new decking at the top of the garden came in very useful and allowed us to splendid afternoons and evenings.  We even sat out to enjoy the stars on one warm night.  Great fun."


6th June 2015 - Barb, Mac & Marg -

"Had a wonderful holiday; beautiful cottage, you've thought of everything.  We would love to come back.  Thanks Vicki for your help and the cottage being so clean and tidy on arrival."


23rd May 2015 - Jean & Roger, Cambs

"Another great holiday at Haven Cottage - our fifth!  Porthleven & Haven Cottage just get better and better." 


9th May 2015 - Anne & Steve, Birmingham

"This our second stay at Haven Cottage and hopefully not our last - it is just lovely.  We have really enjoyed our week here, especially the really rough seas caused by the gale.  Thank you again Vicki for your great housekeeping and also for the wine and flowers - hopefully be back next year." 


21st Feb 2015 - Claire, Paul & Miles, Kent

"We've had a perfect, relaxing winter week.  Weather good. We know Porthleven well and love it.  Haven Cottage is great.  Well equipped, so clean, lovely views - could not wish for better.  Thank you for the wine, etc.  A really perfect week's break.  We hope to return."


27th Dec 2014

"What a wonderful cottage!  I'm so pleased that we booked it having only seen it online.  It was lovely to be here for Christmas and thank you for putting up the Christmas decorations - it was very welcoming!  Definitely the best cottage I have ever stayed in - so beautifully decorated and well equipped!  Great views and comfy beds - also nice and cosy for winter.  We'll definitely be coming back again soon!  Thanks for the wine and flowers! xxx"


22 Nov 2014 - Andrew & Rita, Lightwater

"Just finished a relaxing week, nice walks and scenery.  Very nice cottage, felt at home straight away.  Hope to come again!" 


1 Nov 2014 - Ian, Dawn & Connor

"Our third visit to Haven Cottage, as welcoming and clean as ever, it really is a home from home for us.  Thanks for the chocolates, wine and flowers.  Weather hasn't been great, but it hasn't stopped us going out.  Lovely meals in the local restaurants, highly recommend everywhere.  We have been wondering how you manage to get 'new guests' as all the previous ones book time and time again, just as we will next time we come to Porthleven.  Thanks again, it is Haven Cottage that makes our holiday."  Comment from Connor "This place is awesome and the chocolates still taste great."


Oct 2014 - Charlotte & David, London

"Several years on and still Haven Cottage remains the perfect bolthole in Cornwall!  Standards remain exceptionally high and some new touches in the garden are fab!  Thanks again."


4 Oct 2014 - Frances & Owain, Bristol

"As Haven 'regulars' this cottage is home from home.  There are so many thoughtful touches, like fresh flowers, milk, internet, throws to snuggle under and the best equipped holiday kitchen.  Vicki as usual leaves everything sparkling clean (better than a hotel).  Can't write any more as I am off to the harbourside to check out today's catch and buy it off the boat!"


27 Sep 2014 - Anne & Steve, Birmingham

"This is our first stay at Haven Cottage and we have loved it, so much so we have booked a week next May!  Thank you Vicki for keeping it so clean and tidy.  Porthleven is just perfect, can't wait to return next year, hopefully we will have the same lovely weather."


5 Sep 2014 - David & Katrina, Kent

"Had a great time, lots of walks, good weather, we have been many times and it just gets better.  Haven Cottage is jus perfect and Porthleven is great.  Thank you for the wine, chocolates and flowers, we have had a wonderful holiday and can't wait to come back."


30 Aug 2014 - Stefan, Zahra, Liza & Malika, Germany

"Our second visit to this lovely cottage and we found everything we needed and much more.  We will miss the talks to the next door neighbour Alec, who is such a friendly character and always willing to help.  Our best regards to Vicki who keeps this cottage in such a good, clean condition.  Of course many thanks to the owners Carole & Trevor, who gave us good advice to the many questions we had.  We look forward to coming back to this beautiful place."


2 Aug 2014 - Angela, Rohan, Adam & Eddie, Surrey

"Our second stay at Haven Cottage and even better than our first.  Thank you Carole & Trevor, and thank you Vicki for your superb housekeeping.  Porthleven is a very special place.  Thank you for the wine and chocolates, we will most certainly be back."


26 Jul 2014 - Lorraine & Tim

"This has been truly a haven and the quiet of the harbour in the early mornings is beautifully calming, as well as the fields nearby.  It's been a wonderful 2 weeks again, this is our third time here.  Thank you so much for this lovely home from home."


12 Jul - Mark, Sarah, Maddy & Becky, Oxon

"Our second stay at Haven Cottage and it is as delightful as always!  Thank you Trevor & Carole for the opportunity to stay in such a well kept property in the beautiful location.  We greatly look forward to staying again as soon as we can."


7 Jun 2014 - Tom & Linda, London

Being our fourth visit it is hard to find new superlatives to describe Haven Cottage and Porthleven.  Both never disappoint and are as welcoming as ever.  It becomes increasingly difficult to leave at the end of the week.  We look forward to returning next year.  Thank you Trevor & Carole and of course Vicki for the superb housekeeping."
