It was the thought of staying in a Norman church that made us want to go to this property (two adults in party). It looked beautiful from the pictures but, when we got there, it was even better. It is much larger than it looks, with a huge kitchen/dining area and a large lounge. The conversion is just superb with an excellent use of space and with many original features maintained.
The kitchen has everything you need to cater for the holiday and is very well stocked with implements, machinery, and appliances. A bathroom and additional shower room is a bonus. The bedrooms aren’t huge but are delightfully tucked into the rafters.
The wi-fi is good (quicker than our rural broadband at home) and two office areas made necessary holiday-working a pleasure.
There is parking for two cars and the ground around the church is delightful – with many seating areas and even a fire pit.
The church is well stocked with books and games if you are not blessed with the gorgeous weather we had for our week.
There is a working farm next door with all the animal sounds (and smells) that implies. The farmer is lovely and was very considerate of our enjoyment.
I am trying to think of any downsides but I cannot. It was an amazing experience to stay there and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Truly excellent.
My two friends and I have just spent the most amazing weekend at High Haven. This sympathetically and cleverly converted church is an absolute joy. The photos don't quite do justice to the TARDIS-like quality of this property. It is an amazing space with an extremely well-equipped kitchen.
The extra (wine) fridge was a bonus too.
This would suit families as well as groups of individuals.
Charlotte is a great host with speedy communication.
I'm from Pembrokeshire but love away and even though my mum loves very close by, I would stay here again with no hesitation
We enjoyed a fantastic week at Little Haven.....the Property was immaculately done with great thought put into every detail.....we have already booked again for 2017!

The chapel is beautifully designed, with some clever uses of space. Views were fabulous and it had everything we needed inside as far as crockery, utensils, dishwasher etc.
We booked the chapel specifically for a long weekend to enjoy the local area with our dogs. The property was advertised as being dog friendly, and the entrance hall is perfect for anyone's walking boots, leads etc however there were some major elements that for prospective dog owners that weren't ideal. The chapel doesn't have any secure fencing and whilst we were happy to deal with our own dogs with this, being able to let them off the lead outside would have been great. The main problem was the farm next door have many dogs that roam free including into the chapel grounds and close to the house. They do their business in the garden with the farm seemingly unaware. These dogs' constant barking kept us awake at night and caused problems with our own dogs. While there's nothing the chapel could do about these dogs, a boundary or an area of garden enclosed would have really helped.
The rules for the property detail no dogs allowed on furniture or upstairs, which wasn't an issue for us however we did think a stair gate at the stairs would have helped prospective dog owners who may have dogs that do usually go up stairs or even guests with small children who could find the stairs rather precarious.
We also thought that some nice comfortable seating outside would really benefit the property for future guests to be able to comfortably sit enjoy a glass of wine enjoying the view in the evening sun.
