The Haven is an attractive blend of quaint and imposing architecture with dramatic large square bay windows on a stone-faced gable with cottage style slate-hung elevations set further back. The hillside location in a wooded valley overlooking the small coastal village of Lee is quite stunning. The home is approached up a narrow and steep Tarmac road, which is only six feet six inches wide at the narrowest point. The climb is well worth it with breath-taking views across Lee Valley and the surrounding National Trust coastland. The house was built in the 19th Century and offers plenty of room for extended families. Two lounges both enjoy beautiful views and the dining room seats 10. The kitchen has everything a large group might need and a small rear courtyard is a good place to store surfboards and bikes. The spacious garden is terraced with flowers and shrubs and there is a furnished brick barbecue area. The front lawn is also furnished and enjoys beautiful views. The 14th Century Grampus Inn is a friendly meeting place a short walk away in the centre of the village and picturesque Lee Bay is just a little further along the path. A short drive away is Ilfracombe, which has a delightful mix of Victorian and Regency architecture, pretty harbour, independent shops, restaurants, cafes and pubs. The harbour, with Damien Hirst’s infamous bronze statue Verity, and the Tunnels Beaches, are well worth a visit along with the award-winning Ilfracombe Aquarium, fascinating Ilfracombe Museum, Larkstone Leisure Park, Hele Cornmill and Chambercombe Manor. Woolacombe is a short drive in the other direction. Its three mile stretch of golden sand has been voted number one in the UK by TripAdvisor guests for the last two years

It was wonderful - exactly what we needed: a proper ‘cottage’ that was big enough to accommodate 2 families!Mr Matt Burley - 4th January 2019
Owner was excellent- kind and incredibly helpful. Retuned items we left by post. The house was well equipped and very well stocked. It was very welcoming with fresh flowers and biscuits. The parking is a little scary at first, but you soon get use to it! We had a wonderful stay in this spacious house and would return. Thank you. Mr Michael Watson - 25th August 2018
Comfortable, peaceful, very well-equipped and we were well provided for. We found the owner very helpful, friendly and committed to providing the best service and ensuring a happy stay.Mr J Bates - 8th August 2018
Perfect for our needs. Mr Cameron is a very good host.Mr Martin Seddon - 28th February 2018
We had a great stay at the Haven. The owner, Allen, is a very friendly and helpful guy.Mr Nick Chadwick - 6th January 2018
We visited the cottage primarily to attend a family wedding in Lee Bay. The Haven is an ideal place for a large family get together with plenty of room to accommodate 12 guests, well equipped to cater for every need. The property is lovely and we felt very much at home there. Mr Cameron made us feel very welcome and it was nice to have tea, coffee, milk and biscuits left for us. Mrs Elizabeth Vosper - 11th October 2017
a lovely old house, very warm and cosy, very comfortable beds, and just what we needed. The owner was delightful and could not have been more helpful. Mrs Pippa Jones - 5th October 2017
Very good property home from home,nothing is to much trouble for very acomadating ownerMrs Elizabeth Clarke - 3rd October 2017
Everyone in our party, from 10 to 86 yrs old loved this house, even the dog was chilled out! It's a real holiday home - a home - not impersonal holiday accomodation. So much room and so much to discover. The owner is a lovely gentleman and so welcoming, we felt like guests not customers.Mrs E Steele - 16th July 2017
Home from home. Everything we needed was there - and more!Ms Jan Wingfield - 29th May 2017
A lovely building which we would very happily stay in again. The owner who met us when we arrived was also a very, very lovely gentleman so matched the property perfectly. My girls who tend to worry about old pictures on walls in old house were immediately won over by the document that explained each painting or which family members were shown, a really nice touch and hugely interesting.Mr Steve Plenderleith - 26th April 2017
This was our second visit. The location is ideal and the standard of the property is of the highest order. Mr Cameron is a delightful host.Mr Martin Seddon - 3rd March 2017

I would recommend this property to anyone, as the house, gardens and views were fantastic.Mrs Lesley Scard - 20th July 2015
The Haven is a fantastic house for big parties: 10 minutes from the beach, 5 from the pub and fully equipped with everything you could need, including the most genial and accommodating host you could wish for. Highly recommended.Mr Ben Rawlence - 25th June 2015
