How to get there

Directions & Arrival -

Check in time: 3 pm Check out time: 10 am

At the Hayle Roundabout on the A30 take the Hayle road (4th exit) and proceed for about 250m (you will cross 2 adjacent mini roundabouts by Lidl) till you reach the Recreation Ground on your right. Turn right (opposite the Jet petrol station) signposted Phillack,Towans & Beaches. Proceed up through Phillack village (past the church and Bucket of Blood pub and then farm buildings, all on your right) till the road swings round to the right. After 200m you will see Riviere Towans Chalets Reception on the left. They will give you a map to find E28.

Keys - Collect the key from Reception. Hours are Mon-Fri 9-1 & 2-5; Sat 8-6; & Sun 9-1.

Please note: if you believe you will be arriving outside office hours I am able to provide you with a code to the key safe at the property. You must ensure that if you collect the key from the key safe it is returned to the key safe at the end of your visit.

Directions to chalet: From the reception office they will direct you to a palm-covered roundabout where you turn right. Carry on round to the left till you see a vivid blue chalet on the left. Park to the right of this and walk up the steps to Hi-Up, which is an olive green colour. NB IF ARRIVING AFTER DARK ENSURE YOU HAVE A TORCH WITH YOU!

Water: If the water is not on the main tap and meter are beneath the metal flap in the ground slightly to the right of the front door at the top of the steps. You may need a spoon handle from the kitchen drawer to help you lift the metal cover.

Electricity; If the electricity is not on - the main switch is in the under-sink cupboard in the kitchen. The meter takes £1 coins.

Hot Water - the switch and tank are in the right hand cupboard in the main bedroom. The immersion heater takes about 45 mins to heat a full tank. Once heated the temperature can be kept topped up sufficient for normal dishwashing and bathroom use by switching on for about 15 minutes every day – this also keeps costs very low (but baths, rather than showers, will take the full 45 mins to provide enough hot water).

Electric Shower - Pull ceiling switch to left of washbasin.

Bedding & Towels sheets, duvets, pillows, electric underblankets, towels, bath mat and kitchen drying cloth etc are provided.

TV - Switch on tv and Freeview box. Press the 'AV' button on the tv remote control. Use the Freeview box remote control to change channel. Cornwall is now fully digital, so leave the freeview box on standby during your stay as it may re-tune if switched off at the mains.

Garden bench padlock key, and instruction books for appliances are in the top drawer of the desk.

Window lock key for bathroom and kitchen is in top drawer of desk

The Shop opens at 8.00am and sells freshly baked bread, croissants, pasties, daily papers, wine etc. There is a Fish & Chip shop opposite the shop (but Loggans Fish Bar near Lidl is much superior). Below the shop, Cove Café, on the way to the beach, has good coffee and baguettes and a fantastic view.

Food shopping. You will have passed M&S Food and Lidl at the A30 Hayle roundabout as you arrived. The Hayle Co-Op supermarket is a little further on the right from the Jet petrol station. There is a big Tesco between Carbis Bay and St.Ives, and a Morrisons and Tesco on the outskirts of Penzance.

Recycling & Rubbish - you will see the 3 recycling bins to the left of the blue chalet. Rubbish is collected early on Thursday mornings. You will need to trundle the green wheelie bin down the steps and collect it when emptied.

Cleaning - is included in the rental fee (or for short stay visits is added as an additional charge). Please do not leave washing up for the cleaner as this will be charged additionally to the cleaning fee.

On Departure please close the blinds, bring in any garden furniture and return key to Reception (or to the key safe if this is where you got the key).
