About Yvonne Toms

The owner, Yvonne, was born and brought up in Stithians although she had been away for many years before returning to live in the family home in 1998. The property was built by her father in the 1950s.

Yvonne Toms purchased this bungalow in 1997

Why Yvonne Toms chose Stithians

Parc Drae Holiday Bungalow was originally built as a "granny annex" but having served that purpose has now been tastefully modernised as holiday accommodation, specialising in providing a reasonably priced holiday for couples. There is plenty of space for two and many of our visitors have families in Cornwall and are able to invite them over for meals thanks to the plentiful supply of crockery and cutlery.

Both Yvonne and her husband, Vyvyan, are very involved in the local community.

What makes this bungalow unique

Whilst only a one bedroom property the living accommodation is generous enabling visitors to entertain guests should they so desire or to simply spread out and relax.

A beautifully presented and lavishly equipped detached holiday bungalow. You will want for nothing.

  • 5 of 5

Just enjoyed a 12 night stay in this ideally situated self catering holiday home. Welcomed by warm and friendly owners got us off to a fabulous start to our holiday. Just about everything you'll need is available from the well stocked village store; and the local pub -'The Seven Stars'- serves a fantastic Sunday roast - highly recommended. The main towns and many seaside resorts are all within easy reach, but care is needed whilst driving on the country lanes if you are not used to them. Will surely be making a return visit next year.

Everything you need for a relaxing break

  • 5 of 5

Bungalow sited in excellent position for beaches on all three coasts which are within easy driving distance . Local shop, supermarket not far away and fabulous food at local pub make a relaxing stay even more pleasant. Everything we needed was supplied from wifi to washing up liquid! So relaxing, I've never had so many lie-ins!

Stithians itself is a typical Cornish village - many granite cottages interspersed with more recent buildings. The surrounding countryside is farm and woodland.

Stithians is centrally located between Truro, Falmouth, Redruth & Helston and as such is ideal for visits to either North or South coast.

Stithians is well located for many of Cornwall's attractions. In about half an hour you can be swimming in the sea, sunbathing on the beach, exploring an historic castle, walking in glorious gardens, discovering Cornwall's heritage, visiting Flambards or the Cornish Seal Sanctuary, or savouring one of the many historic ports around the coast.

The village offers many facilities, all within a few minutes walk of Parc Drae.

Village SPAR store, which also sells newspapers/magazines.

Doctors' surgery

Petrol station

Two churches (Anglican and Methodist)

The Seven Stars public house which serves snacks/meals.

Large playing field with equipment for children.

A new Costcutter Store has recently opened on the outskirts of the village.

Nearby you will find Stithians Lake which offers water sports facilities, bird watching and walking and a cafe (seasonal).

The area abounds with footpaths.

Truro, Redruth, Camborne, Helston and Falmouth are all within a half hour drive.

Penzance, Bodmin, Wadebridge, Newquay and St. Austell are all within one hour by car.

The village has regular bus services.
