Carne Haven is just what it says on the tin!!! Truly a fantastic location, beach just on the doorstep, dog walks a plenty and the view from the terrace whilst having a pre dinner drink to die for Can’t be faulted !! But don’t book if you like nightlife other than beautiful skies and twinkling lights from the boats bobbing in the bay

Lovely view. Walks on the beach and the small headland. Not enough pots and pans for a complete self-catering experience. We ate in every night because the access lane was too difficult to use.

Thank you for your review of Carne Haven. Set on the beautiful Helford River with stunning views, there are many walks and hidden coves waiting to be explored. We do appreciate that, if not used to them, the Cornish country lanes and unmade tracks may seem a little narrow and rugged but undoubtedly add to the charm of the area. The owners have followed the guidelines we give for kitchen equipment, but we will pass on your suggestion to add a few more pots and pans. Alison, Customer Support

Superb comfortable property in a fantastic location, we arrived in the dark the evening before and opened the curtains in the morning to look out across the cove, WOW! We thoroughly enjoyed it and had everything you needed for a comfortable stay. Well worth the long drive we had!

Should be called Carne Heaven - beautifully stylish idyllic hideaway. We had an amazing stay.

We had a wonderful week in Carne Haven, which offers a fantastic location. We swam in the cove in the evenings, kayaked, paddle boarded and took a day on the sea fishing, all on boats from Sail Away St Anthony. We even caught our mackerel for the BBQ ! Gillan cove is an excellent location that we will return to, just don't tell everyone though, as it was nice to have this quiet location to enjoy ! : )
