We have been going to Toms for years its always great and if you get the right cottage the views are awesome
This time we had F51 The Gables 2 doubles & 2 bunk beds nice and roomy with a huge kitchen which is fully equipped and a great lounge only downside for us was no bath but we knew that when we booked
parking for 2 or more cars is right outside & its on a level pitch there's a bench out the front and a wooden patio set at the back
Toms is a great site with lots of cottages all shapes and sizes many with spectacular views is an easy walk into town along the coast path and easy access to 3 miles a golden sand & when the tide goes out it leaves a safe shallow lagoon for the little ones
Toms makes a great base for your Cornish stay in get the right cottage and it rocks

This was our 1st visit to Toms and will definitely not be our last. We rented THE GABLES a 3 bedroom property and was pleasantly surprised at how big and clean everything was in it. The site has childrens play areas that our grandsons enjoyed during our stay. It is a well maintained site, all grass areas mowed. Its a short walk to a lovely beach which has a great bar and restaurant overlooking it. I can honestly say we didn't want this holiday to end.

We rented cottage F51 The Gables. I can't fault the cottage in anyway, it was lovely and clean on our arrival and was also very spacious and comfortable. Would definitely use TOMs again. We could see the sea from the cottage and also our son could play on the playground and we could still see him. There is a shop just outside of the site and also a pub by the beach it has everything you need. I did my online shop which was delivered to the site without any issues.
