Self Catering traditional Beach chalet retreat. Sleeps 4. St Ives Bay.

Overview

Property

Updated: 24-Oct-2016
Beach Chalet in Hayle, Cornwall, England - Peaceful site , 5min amble to 3miles Of Golden Sands.. Great location.

A beauitful beach chalet right on the coast at beautiful Riviere Towans on St Ives Bay, on the dramatic North coast of Cornwall. Originally built in the 1930s, the chalet has been carefully rebuilt and restored to retain all of its original wooden charm and more. The chalet can sleep up to four in a double room and bunk bedroom. Both bedrooms are furnished with comfortable duvets, bed-linen, plenty of pillows, and throws.

We have stocked it with plenty of books for all ages as well as a few toys and games.

The chalet has a lovely little patio at the back perfect for those sunny morning cuppa's and a quite read. With a large grass area great for the children to play. We love it there and hope you do to.

Some comments from last years' guests...

"....thank you for a truly fabulous experience, this was perfect for a family. The chalet is a dream to be in and the location is unbeatable. .... We have enjoyed and filled every moment, if we are not back in October..... we will be back next year!!"

"Thanks for creating such a perfect cornish hidaway.... We've had an epicurean adventure... we will be back!!

Great for family holidays, situated in the sand dunes at Riviere Towans. Situated along the southern end of three miles of golden sands. Stretching from Virginia Woolf's famous lighthouse at Godrevy to the naturalists' haven of Hayle estuary. It has safe lifeguarded, swimming and surfing areas, tidal and rockpools, cliff-top coastal walks with stunning views and literally miles of golden sand – we think it's simply one of Cornwall's best beachs. It's also fantastic for serious windsurfer/surf breaks having a great break just out front in the right conditions. It makes a great out-of-season base for walking, fishing, seal-watching or simply regenerating.

Set in a quiet picturesque cluster of chalets on the edge of the Towans its a great central spot. The beach 5mins away with a pub above the cliffs to watch those sun sets. Hayle has plenty of lovely shops to brouse, pubs and resturants, all easy to get to along the coast path. Or visit nearby St Ives, approx 20 minutes' away by car or from Hayle one of the best train rides you can do. St Ives with its narrow cobbled streets and funny names, shops, galleries, restaurants, harbour and beaches. Explore Lands End, Porthcurno and the Minack theatre, fishing villages and sandy coves; Falmouth the Helford River and its creeks, Eden, ... all this and more so easily accessible, north and south coast alike.

"We have enjoyed our stay here at the Towans. We liked it because of its closeness to the sea..... We like the beach hut style chalet and the sofas very comfy."

Charming original style Chalet

  • 5 of 5

Great place,lovely chalet which we all immediately fell in love with! We had a super holiday,the location was perfect for us. Few mins from the beach,great for all the family. (Rock pooling, surfing,etc) Lots to explore locally and within walking distance of Hayle .We were met on arrival by the owner (Tamsyn) who explained everything we needed to know and made us feel really welcome. There were fresh flowers,bread and even ice lollies in the freezer!

The site itself was well maintained and nice and quiet.

WE REALLY DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE!

Thank you.

Mary

Quiet Break

  • 4 of 5

The chalet was lovely and tastefully decorated. The site was clean and well managed. Communication with the owner was excellent. I expect this is better out of season as I was here over Easter. The dog loved the beach and the dunes but sadly dogs are banned from May so I couldn't have come here in the summer. It was quite chilly and the one single oil fired radiator was inadequate. Also could have done with some written instructions for where all the switches were for hot water etc, I was shown when I arrived but never found the hot water switch for the bathroom sink which is due to my own senility probably. The WiFi never worked even after I called the company who supply it and asked on site. I felt that having to pay for my own electricity on top of the weekly rent was a bit steep but there was loads on the meter when I arrived and I am quite frugal so it didn't cost much in the end. I had a smashing week in a beautiful part of Cornwall.

Many Thanks.

Facilities

From the Owner

What a brilliant place to go and get away from everyday life... back to the basics! Play games, read and talk. Run up and down to the beach (sometimes it feels like a nature trail) ... sunrise, sunsets, surf, sand, buckets and spades, rock pools, shrimping, crabbing, dolphins etc etc! We love it there and hope you do too!
