A message from the Owners

Welcome to Chalet Thiseldo! In an enviable location on Hayle beach, the view from our chalet is simply spectacular. Perched on the dunes of this three miles of sand, our holiday house is in the perfect spot for exploring Cornwall from. We hope you enjoy your stay in our family’s new holiday home, please look after it while we are not there.

When in Hayle we enjoy quiet time in the chalet, soaking up the views across the bay towards St Ives. During our stays we spend much of our time exploring (or relaxing on) the three mile sandy beach literally seconds away.

The Cove Cafe above the beach has a good selection of Cornish ice creams, snacks and refreshments.

Towards Gwithian and the Godrevy end of the beach not only can you spot seals, but you can also arrange surf lessons, Rockpool Cafe is worth the long stroll (or short drive) for lunch.

We also like to walk down the estuary and pop into Lula, the lobster shack only ten minutes walk away.

We often pop into Hayle to pick up some Philps Cornish pasties (arguably the best in Cornwall!) and sit on the harbour wall catching crabs with our children. You can also arrange boat trips from Hayle too.

West Cornwall is the perfect base for exploring the whole county from. We rarely visit without taking the coastal train from St Erth to St Ives; to visit art galleries, eateries and shops. Please do contribute to our guest book and tell us and future guests what you get up to during your stay and share any recommendations. We do have a few suggestions to get you started over the next few pages.

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.

On the doorstep

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

Take the coastal train from Lelant to St. Ives, and visit The Tate & Barbara Hepworth museums. Visit Newlyn Harbour and Fish market for the best in Cornish Fish. 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.

Find your way to Knill's Monument and Steeple Woodland Nature reserve, a 40 acre public open space which overlooks St Ives Bay before making your way down to Carbis Bay for fabulous food, drinks and its sheltered beach.

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. Whether it is a relaxing break or a more action packed holiday you are seeking, Toms Holidays at Riviere Towans is the ideal destination.
