Key Features

Glenara nestles in a quite location within the Riviere Towans chalet park, surrounded by grassy dunes, big skies and just a short walk from the stunning stretch of beach which runs from Hayle Estuary to Godrevy, Glenara is a perfect beachside bolthole for couples, friends and families alike.

With two bedrooms (1 double and 1 twin), open plan living / dining, well-equipped kitchen space and shower room, Glenara offers modern beachside living for those keen to explore St. Ives bay and beyond. Surf, caves, coves, cafes and the south west coastal path which runs along The Towans (Cornish for sand dunes), an area of

There’s plenty to explore right here on the doorstep, and with St. Ives, Penzance and the wilds of West Cornwall just a short drive away, Glenara is the perfect place to be based.

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.

Lovely stay at F24 Chalet, we stayed 5 nights. For what it’s worth the price was worth it. It is slightly out the way of towns etc but not too far of a drive. We felt right at home and was a very comfortable sleep. Would come again for sure. Cornwall always has a place in our hearts.

Beautiful chalet, ideal for couples or small family, within 5min walk of the beach and coastal footpath. Great views and a really quiet area of the site, to be fair the site is heavenly quiet anyway.

Been coming to the Tom's site for many, many years. Just had a week with my two daughter's, husbands and grandchildren x 2, myself and my son. Stayed in three separate chalets on the site. Love the location set within the sand dunes, being close to beaches, Hayle and St ives. Will always come back when I get chance to. Easy drive from Telford, Shropshire. Thank you to all of the team behind the scenes that make it all work.

Really lovely clean, modern chalet, great location, and a responsive team. Lovely birdsong and peace sitting on the lovely deck with cushions and sipping cold wine - neighbours nice but not intrusive. We had a big tv, comfortable beds, and cute seaside decor. Great service, thank you!
