Mid C19 pair of substantial houses, probably built around 1860 for the Goldwyer family of Bristol, owners of the Walton West estate. Building plots were advertised for sale in 1857, to plans by W.H.

In 1897 Broad Haven House was advertised for sale described as suitable for conversion to a high-class hotel, with two entrance halls, dining-rooms, drawing-rooms, smoking-rooms, two large kitchens etc, cellars, stabling for 6 horses.
