'Hi-Up' is a comfortable wooden holiday chalet situated with others among the sand dunes at Riviere Towans at the mouth of the Hayle River on St Ives Bay on the North Cornwall Coast. It is set high up and has excellent river views inland of the tidal Hayle River estuary and distant sea views across the bay to St Ives. St Michael's Mount on the South Coast is just visible through binoculars. The chalet is approached via the village of Phillack with its pretty church and the famous Bucket of Blood pub.

The chalet is six minutes walk to glorious Hayle beach. With its 3 miles of golden sands it is reckoned to be one of the great beaches of Europe. A little further on is the famous surfing beach at Gwithian and then beautiful Godrevy Point and Lighthouse owned by the National Trust. Phillack is a great location for all major Cornish attractions.

Hi-Up sleeps up to 3 people in 1 double bedroom and 1 small double bedroom. Bed linen and towels are provided. Heating and hot water are electric and this is metered and takes £1 coins. There is a parking area on the grass in front of the chalet, with shallow steps leading up to the front door. There is a grassed seating area to the side of the chalet with lovely views and outdoor seating and a table. No smoking indoors please. Pay-as-you-go Wifi is available on the site.

Keys can be collected and returned to the Riviere Towans Chalets Reception. There is a local convenience store, and M&S food and other shops, supermarkets and restaurants are less than 1 mile away.

We stayed in hi-up in June. Excellent value for money. The views from the chalet are amazing, looking out over Hayle river & the lights of st ives at night. The chalet was perfect, we took our 5 month old baby & found it perfect. We will definitely recommend to others.

Dear Louise

Thanks so much for the review. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and hope you will come back sometime in the future.

"Cosy little chalet with excellent views"

The situation on the Hayle Towens is superb! I have never had such nice views even while sitting in bed! The house is furnished tastefully. We enjoyed our holiday very much.

Dear Doerthe,

Thanks so much for the review. Like you we love the views both at day and night time. Did you look and see St Michael's Mount on the horizon through the binoculars?

We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and hope you will come back sometime in the future.

Best wishes

"Lovely place with amazing views!"

This was our third visit to Hi Up and we will definitely go again. The accommodation is clean and comfortable, with a very well equipped kitchen. But best of all are the views - the Hayle estuary to the side and across the sea to St Ives in front. The light is constantly changing and it's wonderful watching the sun set over the sea and then seeing all the lights start to twinkle in St Ives. Just a couple of minutes walk and you can be on a huge sandy beach or the South West Coastal Path. There's a good selection of food shops in nearby Hayle and loads of great places to visit in this area. Highly recommended!

"A beautiful place to stay in Cornwall."

Hi-up is an idyllic place to stay in a fabulous part of the Cornwall countryside. As a keen surfer and enjoyer of outdoor activity, this is a great location for walks, swims in the sea and cycling. … More
