A message from the Owners
For many years having taken our Mums (a wheelchair user, the other not very mobile) on holiday, we always tried to find a self-catering place that could accommodate them, our dogs and us. We all loved this area so in 2011decided to buy a chalet and design it with our Mum's needs in mind. We hope you will feel comfortable and have a pleasant stay either enjoying the sunshine from the chalet or the beach, exploring the roads around the Park, longer walks with the dogs or driving further afield. Sea Haven is located in a lovely open area of the Park. Welcome to our Holiday Home. Chris and Gillian Owners
