"Very quiet peaceful site, is what it says in the description" T Rule, Rugby, 09/07/2016

"I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thank you for a fantastic fortnight, we were originally drawn to your site after reading the rules and regulations concerning conduct and behaviour as this is important to us as a family. We found the caravan to be immaculate, the site beautiful and the setting very tranquil. Our children also had a fanastic time with the facilities available to them being great but without any unneccessary razzle dazzle too often overpowering on coastal sites. We were regularly visited by my family who were staying nearby and they also praised the site with cousins eager to stay there in the future. We will return.. probably next year! And all credit to you on your site development and management, as a 40 year old who has holiday'd around this area of Cornwall for 40 years you really did yourselves proud. Thank You." Mrs & Mrs Wall, Blackburn

"We stayed with SHV for the first time this summer and will be reebooking for next year. We found the campsite to be extremely clean, friendly, quiet and safe. Having 5 year old twin boys it was a relief to be able to give them the freedom to visit the park unsupervised but safe in the mind that they were safe from roads etc. The no-noise policy is strictly policed from 10:30 which ensured a good night's sleep for everyone and there were no rowdy campers. We were very pleased with the pitch which was level and had enoughg room. We enjhoyed the organic produce from the shop a bought the delicious bread daily. The was facilites were excellent (of course you always get trodden grass on a rainy day) and I loved being able to use the oven and microwave which really helped some nights with dinner. A lovely holiday so thank you SHV! See you next year!" Yvonne M via website 25/08/2012

" Hi, I just wanted to send you a note to thank you for a fabulous short break. My husband and I returned home today and I can honestly say that I really didn't want to come home. Your campsite is a little haven of peace and tranqility. We didn't have the best weather over the 4 days that we were with you but we enjoyed just hanging around our tent and relaxing in the peaceful surrounds. You really have thought of everything that the modern camper would want. The free access to freezers to re-freeze my ice packs was genius! I can see that you really care about the park and that you want people to enjoy their stay so you try to provide as much information as possible to avoid any ambiguity or possible disapointment. You are doing a great job. We will definitley be returning, hopefully when the weather is better. Thank you, and we will see you again in the future. kindest regards. Amy " 26/08/2010

" Thank everyone at Sun Haven for a wonderful stay again. The site was once more everything we hoped so clean and well cared for. The peace and quiet should be bottled and sold in your shop. Look forward to coming again next year. best wishes from Val and Terry 22/08/2010

EMAIL FROM A CUSTOMER - Hello Steve & Helen, It's not often that I take the time to give good feedback to companies, I think that as I'm paying a top prices, I expect top value, so when that's what I get, then it's only what I expected and paid for.
However, in all our camping years at countless sites we have never come across a site as EXCELLENT as Sun Haven .
Before we booked, I had read all about the no noise policy (as many sites profess to have) and took it with a pinch of salt, but it was as if someone had flicked a switch at nightime and turned off all the noise. The silence, apart from the odd Owl and Duck was fantastic.
Although we didn't need the microwave or ovens or the family bathing area, the fact that they were there to be used if needed was brilliant and certainly we have not come across that before.
Then, such as the bbq's, library, toy box, body boards, wetsuits and bench/tables none of which had to be supplied, were an absolute bonus and very thoughtful.
We didn't get around to completing a suggestion sheet, however if we may put this into the box ~ our suggestion would be that you change nothing! We believe Sun Haven to be without a shadow of doubt the best site we have ever stayed at.
While change must of course happen, and Sun Haven is not exempted from that, we look forward to many more stays with yourselves over the next few years and hopefully again, later on this year, if we can.
Kindest Regards James & family
