We also consider any additional items to benefit our visitors. We are always looking to improve our facilities for the benefit of visitors and welcome any suggestions. We hope you enjoy staying in Dorfli.

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.

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

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.

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.

Everything great, one window handle came off while we were there and Toms offered to come and fix it, but we asked if they could leave it until we left.

Magical Moments This was our third time of staying on the Riviere Towans Site with Toms Holidays. As ever hearty welcome from Toms Staff. We stayed in chalet F73 Dorfli, which sleeps five. It was a wonderful chalet very clean with lots of additional comforts and extras, that we hadn't been expecting, including a small washing machine, microwave, a selection of board games, books and freeview TV. The beds were extremely comfortable and the shower fabulous. We loved that it had a living area and separate sun lounge that was gorgeous.There was a picnic table outside, a grass area where you could play games and that all important car parking space. The chalet had some nice finishing touches to it. We were blessed with better weather than expected which enabled us to spend many hours on the stunning Hayle Beach and Gwithian Beach, where we swam and played in the sea, our daughter splashed about to her hearts content and used a body bopard for the first time, well worth investing in a wetsuit for this reason. We visited St Ives and Lands End, which were both great in their own way. We also ate and drank in The Bluff Inn which was great and is right on the beach front. Lewys Fish & Chip Shop is well worth a visit, don't be put off by the long queue, superb food. The Noseda-Pearce family

It ticked all the boxes or all of us. Thanks again The Noseda-Pearce family
