November 5th - John & Margaret - Wales
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."

"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

and chocolates were nice. Cottage is always clean. Many thanks Carole, Trevor & Vicki."
April 2016 - Tom & Linda, London
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
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
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."
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.
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

"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 &
"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."

"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"

Very nice cottage, felt at home straight away. Hope to come again!"
1 Nov 2014 - Ian, Dawn & Connor
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!
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."
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."

"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."

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
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 &
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."
