7th July 2020 – Update

We are now open for the 2020 season. Balance payments – all balance payments are still delayed until two weeks before arrival (please ignore older receipts which said the normal 6 week date) to allow for any changes in the situation such as the current local lockdown in Leicester. Please make sure your balance is paid by this point.

There are a few changes to the way we are working for this season such as keys are collected from key safes so guests don’t need to come to a communal reception, check in is 5pm to allow time for the additional cleaning required to sanitize each property and we request all guests to bring their own pillows for this season. Full details will be emailed to guests a few days before arrival and key box codes will be text or emailed on the day of arrival once the property is ready for check in. We hope to see you here in West Cornwall soon!

23rd June 2020 – Update

We are delighted to confirm that the government has given the final approval for holiday accommodation to reopen as of the 4th July. We will be open for bookings from the 4th of July. We are now taking payments on provisional bookings already held and balance payments for future bookings. There will be a range of precautionary measures put in place for everyone’s safety and we will update you as your arrival approaches. We look forward to seeing you. 

8th June 2020 – Update

Following the latest government statement and guidelines we are aiming to reopen in early July. We are taking provisional bookings for arrival from the 11th July but are not taking any payment until closer to arrival. This is to enable us to deal with the situation, should the government guidelines change and we are unable to proceed with the booking.

We are currently preparing the properties for this anticipated reopening in order to allow holidays but at the same time we want to ensure best practice is achieved and social distancing can be maintained for everyone’s safety.  

We are regularly in touch with various authorities including Visit Cornwall and Cornwall Council who are currently awaiting further guidance and details from the government. We are putting plans into place so that we will be able to receive guests, as soon as reasonably possible when we are given definite dates.

We will post further information as we receive it and look forward to welcoming you to Toms again soon.

12th May 2020 – Update

Following the latest government statement and restrictions and in line with other independent accommodation providers in the area, we will need to reschedule all bookings due to take place in June. For any bookings in July we shall have to wait for further advice. 

We know this is disappointing, but is done to protect you, our owners, housekeepers and the local and wider community.

We will be contacting all guests with bookings in June as soon as possible.

Payment of balances due on bookings for this season is now not required until two weeks before arrival, rather than the normal six weeks to allow everyone maximum time to respond to developments.

Please email any queries rather than call, as we can deal with these in order. We are a small family business working from home, trying our best to answer all your questions as quickly as possible. We will get back to you as soon as we can.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Most importantly, we hope all are safe and well and look forward to welcoming you at a later date.

17th April 2020 – Update

Following yesterday’s government ruling, with an extension of lockdown regulations and in line with other independent accommodation providers in the area, we are required to reschedule all bookings due to take place before the 9th May and we are offering to move those with later holiday dates in the subsequent weeks of May / June.

We feel it is likely travel will be restricted for these later dates and are happy to reschedule any May/June bookings at this time. We know this is disappointing, but is done to protect you, our owners, housekeepers and the local and wider community.

We will be contacting all guests with bookings in May as soon as possible.

Having rescheduled all April bookings, we are awaiting further government advice this week. Many guests have already contacted us regarding May and June bookings and we have been happy to move these to later in the season or 2021 when requested.

21st March 2020 – Update

As the situation continues to develop daily around Covid-19 we have decided that Toms Holidays will now be closed to all guests until May, with bookings commencing thereafter.


PLEASE NOTE: If you have a booking during this period, please watch your inbox for an email updating you on the status of your booking and how to proceed.

We are deeply sorry to all of our guests, but we are sure that you understand that this is the only responsible thing to do at this point.

As mentioned above, we aim to re-open from May, but we will of course keep monitoring the situation and updates will be provided as and when the situation changes.

We appreciate the concerns you must have if you have a holiday booked with us during this period, but would ask you to bear with us as we will be contacting you shortly.


Covid-19 (Coronavirus) – We have been following developments very closely and have put into place everything we can to ensure smooth running throughout this period. We believe the properties we offer, in terms of detached accommodation and no on-site facilities at Riviere Towans and the individual self-catering properties with grass areas between at Tolroy Manor are very well setup for this scenario. There are, however, a few things we can and are planning to do to ensure we are following best practice and government guidelines as the situation develops. The management company at Riviere Towans who run the actual site, have confirmed that, as all properties are individually owned, they can not and will not be closing the site.

Key handling – In an attempt to reduce the amount of physical contact we are placing key safes on each property. This will allow guests to arrive in Cornwall and go straight to their property without having to go to a reception area to collect keys. We will be able to provide you, the guest, with detailed maps of the park and directions to the property along with the individual access code for the property, via email. You will then receive a text or email letting you know when your property is ready. We are asking guests not to arrive before 3:00pm to enable our cleaners maximum time. All government guidelines will be followed throughout the process.

Reception – As a company our full reservation system, database and phone system are all cloud based. This gives us great flexibility to follow government guidelines without impacting your holiday. The actual reception may be closed but we are continuing to work at various locations as well as on site. Our normal “out of hours” contact number will be available should you need assistance and we will have staff available to help.

If you need to cancel – At present, any of our guests who have taken out the Booking Protect cover will be covered if they become ill or are advised not to travel by a doctor. Please see the text from Booking Protect. If you have not taken this cover and have not yet paid your balance, it is still possible to add this to your booking, otherwise our standard terms and conditions apply.

Booking Protect – Coronavirus guidance

The Coronavirus situation is currently developing on a daily basis.  Here is our guidance for how refunds will be handled by Booking Protect: Our terms and conditions currently covers illness so a customer will be refunded if they or any of their immediate family contracts coronavirus and this is supported by a doctor’s note stating they shouldn’t attend the event.

If a customer is in a high risk group and they receive advice from a doctor supported by a doctor’s note not to travel to a certain area then their refund will be paid.

Our customer terms and conditions exclude Government or Government agency travel bans “ you are prevented from travelling to a booked event due to an outbreak of a contagious disease and the Government or any agency acting on behalf of the Government has imposed a ban on travel ” therefore if a customer cannot attend for this reason then a refund will not be issued. We will not issue refunds where a customer does not attend an event because they are concerned about catching coronavirus or where the event is cancelled.

It goes without saying that the health and safety of guests is the absolute priority, so we will keep this under constant review and should public health advice change, we will of course adapt our plans accordingly and keep you informed.

Particularly in this situation, we feel if people are looking for a holiday anywhere, with the space and vast beach on the doorstep at Riviere Towans, it would be difficult to find a better place. Thinking back to Toms’ 1960s advert…..‘In-Hayle Pure Clean Air’
