We consider ourselves really lucky to have such a super van & a fantastic spot (our little bit of heaven as we call it). We feel it a waste to leave such a 'haven' empty when we cannot get down ourselves, so in our first year we let Haven let it for us & was fully booked.
the next year we started to let privately and was again fully booked,
we now only let privately and are offering it to let to 'nice people' who will look after our van & enjoy it as we do, in between using it ourselves. We now have many of our guests re- book each year. So if you are interested and require further information please ring or e-mail us and we will only be too happy to answer any queries.
STRICTLY NO PETS allowed ,(please don't ask) if this is ignored you will be asked to vacate the caravan.
NO SMOKING or Vaping allowed inside caravan
Booking in peak season will be mainly on a 7 or 14 night basis, shorter breaks may be available on request. Please checkout Haven Brochure or web site Doniford Bay, Somerset for more park details. You can find cheaper caravans to hire but once you see our caravan & most importantly its position on the park you wont be disappointed.
