  • "I had the most comfortable and enjoyable stay in Safe Haven the cottage is delightful, it has very comfortable beds, a generous dining area with a good sized table to seat a family, well appointed kitchen and a comfortable living room."

    It also has smart TVs in all rooms great for a relaxing bedtime film and quite a luxury. Very nice garden up some steps from the house but totally secure and quite beautiful with mature plants and an area for birds which attracts all sorts of bird varieties The garden has a lovely seating area to sit in the sun . Parking is on the street but I was always able to park outside the house or very close. Nice quiet neighborhood no noise at night. The landlord lives opposite and couldn't have been more helpful. I'll be back in the summer it was a lovely place to stay

  • "We had a very enjoyable holiday with many cornish villages and harbours explored from were Safe Haven is an ideal location However the down side to Safe Haven is the access to the secure garden that is through shared gardens and you can not let your dog free out of the back door, it must be on a lead until you reach the private garden."

    Parking is not good, the road is typical cornish village type only wide enough for two cars only (not a problem) but parking outside of the property can be fustrating, the properties either side of Safe Haven were empty at the time of our holiday and on a couple of occassions failed to get parking outside the property

  • "The main issue with our stay was the bed is extremely uncomfortable."

    The mattress has certainly seen better days. The garden although nice and well kept is not accessed straight from the property, you have to walk past the neighbours garden. Position of garden was also an issue for us as it meant we couldn’t keep the back door open for our dog to come and go which was one of the reasons we booked the cottage. On a positive note we did find the owner helpful and friendly but because of the dire mattress and other issues we would not return. Shame as it’s a lovely area and lots to do close at hand.

  • "Lovely cottage."

    Rooms spacious. Everything you need for a good base. Owners lovely and helpful. Booked for my parents to visit us and they had a lovely stay. Nice, warm and cosy. No problem parking. Neighbours lovely and welcoming. Ideal base to tour local area such as Eden Project, Fowey, Charlestown, Mevagissey.

  • "Safe Haven is a lovely little cottage conveniently situated in Tywardreath with easy access to Par Sands, The Gribbin, Fowey, The Eden Project and more."

    Superb location for walkers and those who want to make use of Cornwall's rail network. Grant and Mena are excellent hosts, very welcoming and full of useful information and tips for enjoying the local area. The local pubs serve excellent real ale and quality food. Couldn't have enjoyed our stay more :) x

  • "Cottage as described, and lovely, spotlessly clean!"

    The only thing which was also in a review, is the parking, whilst there is parking available, often others use it, and we were advised not to park outside next door for reasons I don't wish to disclose as it's to do with someone's health, but when we then parked against the next cottage along (8), where there is no dropped kerb, but they park on their hard forecourt, there was a bit of a disagreement, as they felt we shouldn't have parked there. So although there is parking, it may be a little (very little walk) away, so not an issue, but so that ppl know it may not be immediately outside. Everything else was fantastic

  • "The accommodation was excellent with white bedding and fluffy towels it felt very luxurious - the owners were very friendly and were able to advise on local walks and places of interest which was really useful."

    There was a goody/welcome pack which was a lovely thought. The garden is enclosed, secluded and south facing which was lovely at the end of the day to sit and relax. Would definatley recommend as an excellent place to stay

  • "There was excellent communication from Meena by text before the holiday and by Grant when we arrived at the cottage."

    They are the owners who have renovated the cottage and live opposite, but are not intrusive, although they are close should a problem arise. The photo is deceptive - the cottage is 'cosy' but rooms were more spacious than we anticipated. The kitchen/diner and bathroom are definitely spacious. The shower was particularly good and the kitchen was well equipped. At the time we stayed, there was a problem with the washing machine, hence a lower score for facilities. The cottage is in a row of four with a rear garden which has been divided into four allocated areas. The garden for Safe Haven was up several steps, but was fenced off and was mainly lawn with a sitting area and barbecue. The welcome pack was lovely and gratefully received! We had no trouble parking outside the cottage when we stayed, although the road is fairly narrow. The village of Tywardreath has an award winning butchers shop, fish & chip shop (which also does Thai takeaways) and a good pub which also does food. Just a few minutes walk down the hill is Par which has a Spar, Co-op, Post Office, cafe and pubs, plus a train station. The coastal path can be accessed in both directions from Par. The local bus services run from both Tywardreath and Par and go to Fowey, Charlestown, St Austell and Mevagissey. We stayed in the local area for the week, but it is a central base for driving to all areas of Cornwall. We thoroughly enjoyed our week in the cottage and would definitely recommend it.

Really well equipped kitchen with sharp knives etc. Really nice welcome pack with local produce. Brilliant WiFi connection.Great location with friendly nearby pub, shops in nearby Par and great place for visiting other places.

    The location was great in the heart of a friendly village with surrounding walks a local butcher and pub.The owner of the cottage Grant called over to see us Sunday morning and helped us with any queries (and even texted me later in the day to let me know which local pub was showing the afternoon football game).The village is full of friendly people who will answer questions about local walks dog exercise areas etc. The cottage has been finished to a lovely standard and the garden is lovely with a table and chairs and peacefulness looking out over the village to the sea.We were given a welcome pack that included bacon sausage milk and bread from the excellent local butcher shop and they had even put ice cubes in the freezer for our drinks.The location is ideal for touring the fabulous North coast and it only takes 30mins to reach the South coastal in all fab cottage friendly people and great location Thanks !

  • "A lovely holiday in a beautiful part of the world."

    Safe Haven is equipped to a high standard and exactly as described (please note the garden is fully enclosed but you do have to walk up steps through a communal area to reach it and there are local dogs/cats on either side of the property). The owners live opposite but aren't intrusive - they are very welcoming and keen to help in any way they can.

  • "Grant was very helpful and any questions or requests he dealt with straight away."

    One thing I would say is don't use the washing machine unless desperate, the water pressure is so low in the outhouse that it takes an extremely long time and needs to be monitored. Everything else was fine plenty of utensils and a variety of products to use also the welcome pack was a lovely surprise.

About the location


Fowey 3.3 miles; St Austell 6.3 miles.

The pretty, historic Cornish village of Tywardreath, meaning ‘The House on the Strand’, lies in the heart of Daphne du Maurier country and features in her book of the same name. St Andrew’s, the village church, is said to have the best peal of bells in the area, while the village has a lively community, centred round its excellent pubs and range of shops. There are several safe, sandy beaches close to the village, with a variety of watersports and leisure activities available. Par, a small, china clay port with a dog friendly sandy beach is a fifteen minute walk from the village or 5 minutes in the car, home to a main line railway station. Polkerris Beach, a 30 minute walk or a 5 minute drive away, has a beachside restaurant, pub and watersports centre. The attractive waterside village of Fowey is just three miles away, from where there are some dramatic cliff walks to Gribbin Head, passing through much of du Maurier’s familiar landscape. There are many family attractions in the area, including Mevagissey and Charlestown harbours, the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Tywardreath is a village that will appeal to families and those keen to explore the rich heritage and gorgeous coastline of South Cornwall.
