Customer Reviews of Shell Haven

'We had a relaxing Easter at Shell Haven, the weather was mixed but we still enjoyed some great walking along the coastal path and beach (which is right outside). The house was lovely and warm and has the most amazing view of Amroth beach. We enjoyed watching the waves from the lovely conservatory/large French windows which really do make the most of the view. The owners have obviously got an eye for every detail and the property is spacious, well-equipped and very tastefully furnished. We felt at home and very relaxed. We have stayed in many cottages over the years and would say this is the highest standard we have been to. We may be back in the summer to take advantage of better weather/the lovely decking that has been added this year!'
