Further details can be supplied on request. Balances are required one month prior to arrival.

A special note for Apartments, Villas and Cottages

Clients will be required to provide a credit/debit card imprint/deposit on arrival, or in respect of Green Acres, Juliots Well, Bay Retreat, Mawgan Porth Apartments and White Lodge, a £100 deposit will be added to the total holiday invoice payable at the time of balance.

Liability is not limited to £100 in the event of loss/damage in excess of this figure and if in the unlikely event higher charges are applicable we would seek further payment from the credit/debit card supplied at the time of booking or require supplementary payment by cheque or credit card. In addition, charges may apply where through unacceptable behaviour, disruption and severe inconvenience is caused to fellow guests. Please check your property on arrival and if you find any significant damage to any contents/furnishings please advise us at once to avoid charges being incurred on your departure.
