‘Bide a Wee’ means to stay a little… or maybe you’d like to stay a lot? The names of the chalets at Riviere Towans have stayed with them over the years, and offer us a little insight in to the original owners holiday experience… Bide a wee is a place from which to enjoy the surrounding dunes and spectacular views across Hayle Estuary towards towards West Cornwall Golf Course and Lelant Church.

Now a beautiful site with a vast range of unique, quirky and privately owned accommodation, including beach chalets, bungalows and lodges. Many have stunning sea views and all are within a few minutes walk of the beach.
