A message from Toms
Come and find us in our on site office open 9am-5pm Monday - Saturday and 9am-1pm on Sundays, from maintenance to housekeeping, travel tips and directions, we’re here to help! There is a 24 hour ‘out of hours’ contact number for us too.

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 St Erth 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.

A wonderful stay in a lovely area, the chalet park was very peaceful and the chalet was very cosy and comfortable.Tom's were very helpful about me having to check-in very late on arrival with the flexible arrival time and about adding an extra person to the booking. We had a lovely holiday and would love to stay here again.

A lovely compact cabin with a great view just peeking above others at the park. For the time of year it was ideal for us as a couple. Friendly and helpful staff particularly when my brain left the building at one point. Thank you Toms Holidays

We had a lovely stay in The Firs The rooms are a bit on the smaller side, but when the weather is good (which it was for us most of the time) - that’s enough ;) Short walk to the beach and wonderful view of the sunset from the big window in the living room! Would book again!

Perfect location for us. Near to St Ives and Penzance, and only a 10 minute walk to a stunning beach that was perfect for my partner to paddleboard on. We had a small issue with not being able to find the accomodation as we couldnt get 'what 3 words' to work, but we found it in the end (behind the red chalet that stands out at the first roundabout). If you are looking for a meal out, we thoroughly recommend the terrace in Hayle. We ended up going there twice in our weeks stay. In regards to the accommodation, it is small but was perfect for us and had everything we required (although if you plan on cooking at all, bring a baking tray). We had a lovely time, and would recommend.

The only thing that could be improved in this property is the bathroom toilet where it is in the corner

A nice little chalet in a beautiful location overlooking the sea. Friendly atmosphere around the campsite, which has some pleasant green spaces between chalets. The main bedroom in this chalet was very cosy with its 3/4 size bed, particularly if you're over six feet tall! Spacious and well equipped kitchen, small bathroom with comfortable living and dining areas. The large windows made the chalet very light. A short walk down to the beach; look for the footpaths rather than going the long way around by road. The Bluff Inn is a short distance away, serving decent beer although the menu seemed a bit pricey. Great for the sea views though. Recycling was easy and there is a handy little shop for emergency supplies.

Really lovely place to stay, short walk to the beach. We used it more of a base to go and visit the many places around it. Would recommend this.

Es lohnt sich bei TOMS Ferien zu machen.

Toms's place is the perfect position to explore anywhere from Truro to St Ives, Penzance to the Lizard. Toms's place sits right on the beach and is a wonderful place to walk to Godrevy lighthouse. The accommodation has everything you need for a relaxing stay, you dont feel cramped as the layout of the site is very open with some lovely little dwellings all with their own characters. Inside feels cosy and clean with neat, well thought out areas E20 was great with its own little balcony and huge windows to watch the world go by. We will certainly come back, as we never get to see everything we want to as there is never enough time!!!
