About the property

West Haven - five bedrooms-five bathrooms - 100 yards from beach

Stunning house right in the heart of Widemouth Bay, with far reaching views over the dramatic Atlantic ocean, and a short walk along the meandering, almost level, path to the wide, inviting sands. Sleeping up to 13, with four en suite bedrooms, large sitting room and separate children's den, an excellently appointed kitchen and dining room (both with sea views) with all modern facilities, Games Room, West Haven is a truly exceptional holiday house that will suit family groups and friends alike. With a lawn that would do justice to Andy Murray's forehand, the gardens are the perfect place to sit and take in the wonderful sea air if you decide that the minute walk to the beach is really just too strenuous. With great surfing, (Widemouth Bay is considered one of the top surfing beaches on the North Cornwall coast), an excellent restaurant, gastro pub (offering fish and chips takeaway), village shop with fresh fish counter all within the Bay, this is a great house for holidaying.

Great holiday

  • 4 of 5

Very enjoyable holiday.The property has a great location.Great coastal walk to Bude and easy access to Boscastle and Tintagel.Really good food in the locality.Bedrooms and baths all good As was the kitchen.Sky and WiFi really helpful.Only issue was the fire that sent smoke everywhere apart from up the chimney and the lounge furniture that could have been more comfortable.Great holiday!

Amazing views

  • 4 of 5

This house has amazing views of Widmouth Bay . I booked this for a family holiday which comprised of our 86 year old mother and a ten month old baby as well as 8 other adults.

I had a few queries about the house before our arrival which were dealt with quickly by Nick. We also had no heating on our first day which was also dealt with very swiftly by Nick.

The house is perfect for large groups with a spacious lounge and 5 bathrooms. The ground floor is all on one level which is also important if you have anyone in your group with mobility issues.

Overall the decor is in good condition although the games room needs some attention as it is damp and painted bright pink which makes it feel like a dodgy 80's nightclub.

Unfortunately the weather was poor during our stay with a lot of wind and rain and so we could not make use of the garden which is perfect for children as it is fully enclosed.

I would recommend this house for adults and older children who would enjoy surfing and beach activities however for a baby and an elderly mother it was probably a little too isolated from amenities within short walking distance.

Perfect for a great holiday in Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

This house met all our expectations and more. It is modern, clean and offers plenty of space. The kitchen is well equipped, the house has comfortable beds, nice bathrooms etc. It is very well looked after and the games room and big garden are a bonus. Also its position just across the road from the beach and its breathtaking views really make it a perfect holiday base. Plenty to do in the area, such as body boarding (big waves!), village pubs with gardens for kids to play on swings etc, King Arthur's Castle in Tintagal, bluereef aquarium in Newquay etc.

Special mention to Nick Compton from elite west holidays who was extremely helpful and efficient.

stunning location and delightful property

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our stay at West Haven, the whole family enjoyed this marvellous house which catered for everyones need even the games room was well used. The location is stunning with exceptional sea views and the hillside surrounding area. It was just perfect. Widemouth Bay was ideal for Bodyboarding and surfing and the beach was just down a pathway - we all walked for hours with our dogs. There was plenty of parking also for the families cars.

We all have loved every moment of our stay here.

The Perfect Escape!

  • 5 of 5

I don't even know where to start singing my praises about this stunning property and also the spot on service Nick Compton provides every time we decide to rent West Haven for a weekend or whole week.

The listing description for West Haven regarding location and facilities is absolutely accurate, if not even a little toned down, as what we found the first time we walked through the door, simply made our jaws drop. The house was perfectly clean and the presentation of the living space and especially bed-rooms was filled with little details that show somebody really cares. The house is very spacious and perfect for families or friends who want to escape to the seaside for a little break.

Every wish or question we had was taken care of immediately by Nick Compton, who provides a seriously great customer service. Replies come back promptly and are always helpful, fuss-free...exactly what you need when planning a holiday.

No doubt I would recommend West Haven to my friends and family and also already did. We're going to become regulars at West Haven...for a reason.

The surrounding area provides plenty of activities for all age- and interest-groups, from mellow walks along the coast line to surfing at one of the best surf-beaches in the won't get bored.

We'll definitely be back soon! NIck, thanks for making every holiday special and unforgettable :-)
