Bayford, Riviere Towans
With a large secure timber deck which gets the sun for most of the day and from which you can see the sea and stunning sunsets over St. Ives, Bayford is a home from home full of history which offers comfortable accommodation for up to five guests.
Bayford was rebuilt in the seventies on the same spot that the original horse drawn wagon was "parked" in the twenties or thirties. The original iron wheels are still half buried beneath the floor. It has always been owned by families local to the area, and many of these people still visit the holiday site regularly; such is the connection that people feel with the place.
Whether you’re a beach lover, or here to explore the sights of West Cornwall, Bayford is a holiday home from home in a great location. Just a short walk from the sea and coastal path, and a short drive to sights such as St. Ives & Penzance, Bayford is a holiday bolthole you’ll want to return to year after year…
Living Space - open plan kitchen/diner/lounge with large comfy sofa and fold out dining table. The kitchen is like home from home with everything you would normally need including washing machine. There are three electric heaters if it does get cold.
Bedroom 1 - cosy double bed, wardrobe and storage shelf.
Bedroom 2 - double bed and useful large storage cupboard.
Bedroom 3 - single room with comfy full size single bed and chest of drawers.

Outside - To the seaward side of the chalet is a fifteen square meter deck with balustrade and lockable gate. The deck has sea views and gets the sun for most of the day and into the evening. There is a full size pub style picnic bench and deckchairs stored in the chalet. Direct access from the living space to the deck via large glazed door.
There is parking to the side of the chalet and a washing line to the rear all of which on generally level ground.

Stayed from 25th June for 7 nights. 3 adults. The chalet was immaculate and little welcome touches such as a fresh bunch of flowers, a pint of milk in the fridge, along with tea, coffee, sugar and biscuits. Beds were freshly made. Rooms were of a nice size and the sofa in the living room was so comfortable. We walked around the very clean park and loved how all the chalets were different in their own quirky way. F40 Bayford is situated on flat level ground and has a lovely veranda where you can sit and relax. If you stood to the edge of the chalet you could even see the beautiful ocean. Only a quick walk along the dunes to get the the golden beach, where I happily sat and watched the sun setting. This was the first time staying on the site after many years of staying at another site, very close by. I wish I had found Tom's Holidays sooner! It is certainly worth the journey from Thirsk, North Yorkshire to my next favourite place of Cornwall. I will be booking to stay here again for next summer.
