Firstly the accommodation: looking at the website I picked Brian view (F15). I could see on the photos that it was a bit dated but the lounge looked bigger than the other choices so I went with it, we are a family of 5 and based on this years holiday budget, we knew we weren't buying 5* luxury, we just...

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.

An extremely well run holiday home site. Friendly staff and very helpful. Direct access to a magnificent beach. Pub just a short stroll along the coast path. Sit outside with a drink overlooking St. Ives bay and watch the sun go down. Hayle has much to offer; a good selection of shops, fish and chips in Hayle to die for....

We've stayed at Riviera Towans many times and in various properties and have always found people very helpful with any minor problems that can occur in a site of this size. Plenty of room between the chalets and good parking and a shop by the site can supply most of the general items if you run out of something. Access...

We lived in Cornwall for 20 years so when we went back for our first visit in 12 years this July we had some specific places that we wanted to visit. Toms location is perfect for doing day trips all over the county. It's just a couple of minutes off the main A30 and once you are on that you...

Thank you for your kind review. We were glad to hear you had a great holiday after not visiting for 12 years and found the property well equipped and the park well maintained. Certainly there have been issues with the wifi in some properties but we are pleased to say that the park is in negotiation to provide an upgraded...

This is our third year staying with Toms. This year we were in 'alwar' which has been my favourite of the three we have stayed in.

We stayed in B37, and were pleasantly surprised at how spotless the chalet was. It was immaculate. (In my husband's words - upsettingly clean when you have preschoolers!) It was yards from the path to the beach, ideal with two tired children to drag back up the hill at the end of a long day. Beautiful views across the sea...
