The Location

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

On the doorstep

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

Take the coastal train from Lelant to St. Ives, and visit The Tate & Barbara Hepworth museums. Visit Newlyn Harbour and Fish market for the best in Cornish Fish. 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. Whether it is a relaxing break or a more action packed holiday you are seeking, Toms Holidays at Riviere Towans is the ideal destination.

This place was designed for sandy toes, summer memories and autumnal cosy nights in listening to the roar of the Atlantic. If cosiness was designed then it would be this place. A perfect retreat - just for two.

I have visited the site before but not this property. It was very compact but great fun to stay in. It compared favourably in price with local Premier Inns, but had the benefit of a sofa and facilities to do limited cooking for breakfast. I wouldn't want to prepare a full meal due to space. We stayed for 3 nights which is probably the limit you would want to stay due to its size. The one advantage that a Premier Inn has over this property is the bed. The one in this property is quite small but my wife an I still had decent sleep. Although situated out of town the property was only 5-10 minutes walk from the lovely golden sands of Hayle beach, There was a decent fish and chip shop on the neighbouring Caravan park , but be warned for a wait as it gets very busy. The small shop next to the site whilst slightly more expensive than supermarkets has a reasonable stock selection of basic essentials should you need them, including alcohol. This was quite a last minute booking for us in high season and I am so glad we went for this than a Premier Inn.

My boyfriend,and I along with our 12 year old flat coated retriever Findlay stayed in E19 this week and we will be leaving on Saturday morning and I can honestly say it is the most perfect little chalet that has got everything you could possibly need an absolute credit to you! Really well thought out designs from all of the cupboard space to the shower, this chalet has been our home for the last week and I will be truly sad to leave it, perfect location - 10 minutes from the stunning sunset at Godrevy and only 5 minutes into the town of Hayle, wonderful holiday made even better by this little chalet, we shall definitely be returning

While staying at the chalet we had an excellent time and it was perfect, we enjoyed every second. However, one thing I would say is the under floor heating was very hot as the thermostat said it was 40 degrees Celsius and a notice near the switch said not to change the temperature so we found it slightly uncomfortable to have the under floor heating on for a long amount of time as it was too hot on our feet. Other than that it was perfect and we couldn't fault it. Thank you so much for our lovely holiday we will be back next year!
