Welcome to Torestin, which is a purpose built bungalow on the Riviere Towans Chalet Park in Hayle, Cornwall.
We stayed
in a holiday chalet in Cornwall, and liked it, and particularly where it is situated, so much that we bought it.
We especially like the 3 mile beach and the Cornish sand is some of the best.
We have since completely rebuilt it as a modern bungalow, and now rent it out as self catering accommodation most of the time to pay the mortgage.
I hope you enjoy staying there as much as we do.
For information about the bungalow, the resort, prices and booking just follow the links on the left of the screen.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact us by phone, post or e-mail
We have tried to make the web site interesting and have included links to quite a few details of interest, and so even if you do not book with us, you can return here to find out more about the area. There are even a few links to other places providing self catering accommodation, cottages, chalets and bungalows. We think that we offer good value, and even if we do not have space when you want it, you may wish to return to such an interesting area later.

  Riviere Towans Resort  

"Torestin" is a modern bungalow set in dunes
amongst a diverse range of other self catering bungalows and chalets.

Situated only minutes walk away from three miles of sandy beaches.

Situated about 2 miles out of Hayle (original Cornish name Heyl) centre,
one of the Riviere Towans chalets, which are by the beach.

Children enjoy playing in the rock pools, and when the tide is out,
there is a choice of playing in shallow pools in the sand,
or going out to swim or surf in the sea.

The chalet is conveniently situated for easy access to Cornwall's amenities.

The quaint cobbled streets of St Ives.

The beautiful Cornish countryside with its profusion of wild flowers.

The picturesque St Michael's Mount is only a few minutes drive away.

For the person requiring an activity holiday, facilities for fishing, horse riding, wind surfing and walking are within a short distance.
The coast path passes next to the site.

The bungalow is also convenient for local shops, cafes, restaurant, pubs
and local discotheque, with more facilities in Hayle itself.

A little distance away HAYLE ESTUARY and LELANT SALTINGS are renowned for their bird watching spots for some of the more rare migrating birds on their last stop before their long flight South.
