The Haven sits some way up the slopes of a wooded combe overlooking the small coastal village of Lee scattered along a verdant valley. Approached by a steep (6'6"wide) tarmac road the location offers wonderful views overlooking the beautiful Lee Valley and is surrounded by National Trust coastland. Built in the 19th Century, its appealing and characterful appearance offers a delightful family holiday home from home for large groups. In the village centre, less than half a mile away, the popular 14th Century Grampus Inn is a friendly meeting place and tranquil Lee Bay is just a little further along the path. From the house walkers can join the scenic coast trail leading to Ilfracombe or across Lee beach to Mortehoe and Woolacombe. The surfing beaches of Woolacombe, Putsborough and Croyde are all within a short drive.
This spacious property offers plenty of room for extended families. There are two lounges, both of which feature beautiful valley views, a dining room with seating for ten and a well-equipped kitchen and utility area. A small rear courtyard is a handy spot to store surfboards and bicycles. Traditionally decorated and comfortably furnished, The Haven is charming and pleasantly homely. The large garden is terraced with flowers, shrubs and a furnished, brick barbecue area. The level front lawn with garden furniture is a delightful spot to soak up the stunning views.

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
