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.

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.

Average

Toynes House
Toynes House CL is 2 miles outside Fowey and adjacent to the B 3296, one of two busy roads leading to the town centre. The site is spacious and enclosed by tall trees under which pitches are located, and consequently water continues to drip on the roof after rain. Some of the site is left wild. Walking into Fowey is not practicable as there is no roadside path, but there is a longer route via footpaths and minor lanes. An hourly bus service from Fowey to Mevagissey passes the site. Information posted on the club website about this CL is a tad misleading and the 5 ticks awarded by past users suggests that despite the £20 per night, some members are easily pleased.

Short stay July 2021. What a fantastic place to stay. Bruce was very welcoming and happy to share local knowledge of places to walk to.

Toynes House
It’s the little touches that make a Stay more pleasurable. Welcome board for new arrivals. Followed up later in the day with helpful local knowledge giving directions for local places to eat at and places of interest to visit. If you want a small peaceful pretty site this is definitely a place to stay. Bruce definitely made this stay and we loved this small site. Hope to be back soon.

Excellent Site Beautiful location with lots of space

Toynes House
Even though we arrived late we received a warm welcome from Bruce - who throughout the whole stay was most helpful and friendly ...although not at all intrusive. The site is easily accessed from Fowey close to surrounding beaches and very well kept with recently modernised facilities. The Pitch space was generous and even with five Motorhomes was quite and peaceful. Dog friendly with a very good dog walking route on the site. Our first time as new Motorhomers and will definitely come back Gary and Lorraine

Just an overnight stay en-route, but very pleasant, set behind tall trees away from the road. Bruce was extremely welcoming and helpful, and the bus stop into Fowey was only 200 mtrs away. Driver kindly dropped us back at the camp entrance as my elderly mother was with us.
