Cornwall is my favourite place to visit in England & I have visited Hayle in particular many times with my family. This is by far the best Airbnb I have ever stayed in though. The views are absolutely stunning, the property has been renovated to a high standard and the facilities are fantastic. This was a romantic getaway for my hubby’s birthday & we had an amazing time visiting the seals at Godrevy Point and the stunning scenery of Kynance Cove along with many coastal walks to bar but a few. We will absolutely be staying here again in the near future and would definitely recommend it to others.

5 Stars. I didn't read much of the book I took with me, the view was a bit too distracting! Really perfect little place, have rebooked already.

Toms were fantastic, very accommodating, making sure we were okay but not a hassle and a fantastic location with beautiful views. Was great to use this home as a base to travel around the Cornwall Coast as nothing is too far away. Lidl close by if you have a car for food and beach right on your door step with amazing sun sets… what more could you want.

We’ve been going to Riviera Towans for many years now ans have now stayed in The Lair several times now. Excellent update to facilities (except, perhaps the stools if you are of a certain age! Nothing is too much trouble for the people who work there. Just sitting watching the sea is enough to recharge your batteries. That said, the Wifispark internet facility, is as much good as a chocolate teapot. Had to use my ‘phone’s hot spot service and temporarily upgrade to no limit data so we both had some contact with the outside world (that is, though, if you want it!)
