The Location
The holiday park is one of the oldest in the country, with the first chalets constructed in the early 1920s.

Many have stunning sea views and all are within a few minutes walk of the beach.

Walk the coastal path at low tide all the way along the beach from Hayle river mouth to the Cliff tops of Godrevy and the surf break at Gwithian where you’ll find great food and drinks from cocktails to coffees, ice creams and fresh seafood at the local cafes and restaurants.
For those seeking surf, beginners to experienced surfers and bodyboarders can enjoy doorstep breaks at Hayle Rivermouth and Mexico Towans, both within walking distance of the park. Paddle boarding and kayaking on the Estuary, as well as kitesurfing and windsurfing are popular all year round.
Hayle is home to the RSPB Hayle Estuary Reserve, Paradise Park Wildlife Sanctuary, Hayle Lido, ice cream parlours, gift shops, great food (including Cornwall’s best Pasties from Philps), pubs and supermarkets.

Further Afield

Wander around the historical market town of Penzance, taking in the Harbour and Egyptian House or take a day trip to Lands End and coastal walk to Sennen Cove.
Find your way to Knill's Monument and Steeple Woodland Nature reserve, a 40 acre public open space which overlooks St Ives Bay before making your way down to Carbis Bay for fabulous food, drinks and its sheltered beach.
Cornwall has always been a favourite of artists, writers and film producers and its rugged coasts and beautiful coves have featured in numerous films and TV series most recently, the popular Poldark series.

What a lovely place to stay! We come to Toms Holidays every year and try a new chalet each time. This one has to be our favourite so far! The decking is an amazing addition. Our favourite feature. The prefect place to watch and listed to the sea. Every comfort has been thought about and accomodated for. Thank you so much for facilitating a lovely holiday.

Just want to say WOW! Coming away can often be a disappointment, but not this time. The thought that has gone in to this renovation, is superb. Clean, well thought out, so comfortable. Everything here is fabulous and the views is outstanding. Attention to detail makes such a difference. I have 2 wonderful weeks here, for peace and quiet. Ridedway is the nicest chalet I have staying in. Well done!

We have been coming on holiday in Ridgeway for over 70 years and we still love it! We are discovering new things in Cornwall and we are enjoying the classics. We had another great stay! The refresh was a great success and the cosiness of the chalet did not get lost. Thank you!

When we came in we were wowed by the outstanding views and the beautiful chalet. We went to the beautiful beach every day. Thank you so much for making your chalet so wonderful inside and out! We have absolutely loved our week here at Rideway. We never like to stay in the same place twice,but we would make the exception for Ridgeway as it is the best chalet on the site. Thank you!

A lovely chalet with a stunning view. We enjoyed our week here, with everything here that we've needed. Lappa Valley (Railway) was great hit with our children and they loved spotting the local train go past from the balcony. Thank you!

His is our first family holiday to Cornwall and it did not disappoint! We came all the way down from Dunblance in Scotland and am so glad we chose Ridgeway as our base for the week. Prefect family chalet- everything we could need.The weather has not been great but we still managed to enjoy a surfing lesson. We also had a beautiful afternoon at Porthcurno (very funny sitting at the cafe watching impatient drivers trying to get up the hill to Minnack Theare!). A few swims in the sea - highly recommended. The Terrace and Salt are both in Hayle, we would recommend them for food- delish! We would highly recommend Ridgeway as a base to explore - we loved it! We will be back!

Have been coming here, on and off, since 1996! I've always loved Cornwall. This year we did lots of the usual stuff and discovered things we have never done before. Such as cycling, dog walks and saw lots of rabbits and seagulls. What's not to love! Thank you!

It has been a lovely week with sunshine everyday we stayed here. There was also a sunset every evening so we sat outside the window. The view is picturesque. We also went to our favourite restaurant in Newlyn, Mackrel Sky. Highly recommended. The food there is also amazing and well - cooked. We enjoyed many sunny days visiting places such as Hayle, St Ives, Kynance, Gwithian and Newlyn. We also got to experience day 1 of Falmouth;s first every food festival, which was very enjoyable and gave us many delicious options. We can't wait to be back next year! Ther interior decoration of Ridgeway is very nice and made us feel at home. We spent many evenings on the balcony enjoying the sunsets and glorious view. Thank you for a perfect week's stay.

Easily the best chalet on the port, inside and out! We didn't want to leave. The veranda is a lovely bonus when we spent most of our time basking in the sunshine and taking in the incredible views. The chalet has everything you could possibly need, super comfy and impeccable clean. We will definitely come back to stay soon.

Thank you both for letting us stay in this gorgeous chalet. We could not believe the view when we arrived and two weeks later are still looking ut of the window over the sea. Beautiful chalet with everything you need and excellent quality. We will be back!

Thanks very much.

Absolutely stunning property & breathtaking views. We visit Toms twice a year and this is by far the best property we have stayed in. I have loved waking up in the morning and having a coffee looking over at Hayle beach. We have been very lucky to have the sun shining all week :). Sad to be leaving. We hope to come back soon.

What a beautiful home from home. Every detail thought of, from a lemon squeeze to clothes hooks. The view is out of this world. Really very happy here. The beds are very comfortable and the shower refreshing. I have stayed in a few chalets here in Riviere Towans and yours is by far the best. I will certainly be back and can't wait. Thank you so much.

Spent a lovely week here. Chalet was delightful. Tastefully decorated and had everything we needed. The views from the chalet are stunning … comfortable and relaxing. Will come again for sure!

I booked a week at Ridgeway to spend it on my own, doing meditation and tai chi whilst looking at that amazing view! I have had a lovely week of sunny weather, and have walked for miles on the beach every day - As my plan when coming here was to spend time alone, I can't really recommend places to visit etc as I didn't go anywhere ... except the beach! So, it was very important that the chalet itself was comfortable, which it was. The place is a credit to you and I hope to come back soon.
