Why stay here ...

Toynes is a delightful site situated on level ground surrounded by high trees.

The site underwent significant investment this winter and there are now ten hookup points, giving plenty of choice as to where to pitch (meaning extension cables are no longer needed). There are now three water points in the field, so there is no need to trek across the field and feel awkward filling up under our kitchen window. We will miss the regular chats though! A septic tank with a chemical toilet emptying and separate grey waste water points has been installed in the field. Finally there are now more hardstanding areas with particular attention given to the access to the field and drainage to avoid motorhome wheelspin as far as possible in the light of last summer's dreadful weather.

Although the site is situated next to the main road into Fowey it is sheltered by the trees and is quiet and peaceful with plenty of early morning and evening birdsong. There is a pleasant dog walk down to an orchard at the bottom of the garden.

The site is conveniently situated off the B3629 leading into Fowey just after the Golant/Tywardreath crossroads, where there is a bus stop in both directions. There is a regular bus service to Fowey, Charlestown and Mevagissey with the stop just outside the site. Motor caravanners in particular appreciate this excellent service.

There is a large stretch of dog friendly sandy beach at Par, which is close by, along with useful shops and a Post Office plus railway station. Tywardreath, which is closer still has a good fish and chip shop, nationally renowned butcher, nice church and local pub. Golant in the other direction has a pub perfectly situated for a sunny midday drink overlooking the Fowey estuary, where you can go on a canoe trip if fancy takes you.

Fowey itself is close by with all its attractions.

There are many other attractions nearby, namely the Eden project, Heligan gardens, Restormel Castle at Lostwithiel, Charlestown historic sailing port, Carlyon Bay golf course plus traditional ports and villages.

A Definate Favourite

Toynes House
What a little gem of a site. The regular bus route right on the doorstep made travel to Fowey and Charlestown a pleasure during the busy holiday season. Bruce was friendly and welcoming. We found the history of the site fascinating and we will definately be back - we loved the layout of the site, the rustic feel and the wild grass areas.

A very picturesque CL with extremely easy access to public transport which made exploring Fowey and Charlestown very easy (as both were very busy with lots of holidaymakers) Bruce was very welcoming and we have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this CL….as we said earlier, this is definitely a venue we’ll be revisiting

Lovely week at Toynes House CL

Toynes House
We arrived at the site and we’re welcomed by our name on a chalk board at the entrance to the site. We found a lovely spot in the grounds which were very rustic and peaceful. We were welcomed by Bruce, who was very friendly and explained what was available on the site and told us about local attractions. Our pitch was fully serviced and Bruce had even installed Wi-Fi recently. Waste bins were close by so everything was to hand. While at Toynes house we visited, Restormel castle, the Eden project, the lost Gardens of Heligan, the beautiful local town Fowey and made a visit to St Austell. On our last day as suggested by Bruce we took the ferry from Mevagissey to Fowey harbour and we’re delighted to see dolphins en route. There are no walks from the site but a bus stop is only about 5 minutes away so very convenient. A lovely week here and would thoroughly recommend it,

Lovely peaceful place to pitch

Toynes House
I recommend this lovely little place to stay. Bruce, the owner gave me a very warm welcome and was super helpful. The grassy pitch was surrounded by trees and daffodils in late March which is very pretty peaceful and safe although being on the top of a hill appeared to catch the wind a little. The site is just as described in terms of amenities and close by car or bus to the pretty coastal town of Fowey and great access to Cornish coves and beaches. I visited Lanhydrock NT (20 mins) during my stay and the Eden project was en route which never fails to disappoint. I’m looking forward to visiting Toynes house again soon during my many adventures in Cornwall

Lovely holiday

Toynes House
We have stayed at Toynes house three times and thoroughly enjoyed it. Bruce is very welcoming and helpful and even puts your name up on blackboard ready for your arrival, which is nice touch. The CL is described accurately on the web site so you know what to expect when you get there. The busses are very convenient for getting to places especially if you have a motor home or camper van. Bruce suggested going to Golant, which is only one and a half miles away and we had a lovely walk there and a good lunch at the local pub. St. Austell is very convenient for shopping and not far. The Eden project is also not far away as are The lost Gardens of Heligan and there is a lovely farm shop there too with dedicated parking for motor homes. Altogether a very nice place to stay for a holiday.
