Terms & conditions

Welcome to our website. If you continue to browse and use this website you are agreeing to comply with and be bound by the following terms and conditions of use, which together with our privacy policy govern Polmanter’s relationship with you in relation to this website.

Polmanter Touring Park

is a family park catering for touring caravans, trailer tents, tents and motor caravans. Our guests’ enjoyment and safety always comes first and for this reason we ask you to read our terms  and conditions before making a booking.

To maintain the happy atmosphere of the park, we reserve the right to ask anyone contravening these terms and conditions or behaving in a manner likely to cause distress or nuisance to leave immediately. If this happens, the holiday will cease and we will not be liable for any extra costs incurred.


Advance bookings

from Friday 20th July to Sunday 26th August 2018 can only be made to arrive/depart on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday, for a minimum of seven nights. Advance bookings made at other times should be for a minimum of three nights.


Booking conditions

We cater for families and couples, and so cannot accept bookings from all-male or all-female parties of three or more. We may turn down any booking we don’t  feel is appropriate for our environment. 

To book:

  • Remove the attached booking form and pay by
    cheque (payable to Polmanter Touring Park) or credit/ debit card.
  • Use our easy online booking service at
  • Call us on 01736 795640 to pay by credit/debit card (not American Express).

The person making the booking is responsible for it and warrants that  they are over 18 years of age and that the party will contain seven people  or fewer.


This contract

is with Polmanter Ltd, Halsetown,  St Ives, Cornwall TR26 3LX. A contract exists as soon as we have issued our confirmation form and we recommend that you check this carefully to make sure that it reflects your wishes. If you notice any discrepancies, please let  us know within seven days (or 24 hours  if your holiday is due to start within  14 days).

The terms outlined in this contract  do not affect your statutory rights.


The price of the holiday

Once your booking is made and you have paid a deposit of £45 per week  or part week, the price of your holiday will not change unless the rate of  VAT changes.

We ask that the balance of your holiday be paid at least 42 days (six weeks) before the start date. This applies to all holidays and no reminders are sent out. If your balance isn’t received in time, your holiday could be cancelled and your deposit lost. We are unable to transfer holidays to another  person or year.


If you cancel your holiday

You can cancel your holiday at any  time and this cancellation will be effective on the date it is received  by us in writing or via email. Our standard cancellation charges are:

  • More than 43 days: value of deposit only.
  • 42 days and under: 100% of total holiday cost.

We recommend taking out your  own cancellation insurance, as we are unable to give refunds.


If we cancel your holiday

If we are unable to provide the booked holiday and have to make a cancellation before it is due to start, you will be entitled to a full refund of the money you have paid.



Please tell us the size of your unit, including any tents, when making your booking so that we can allocate you a pitch large enough for your needs (maximum tent size 8x8m including guy ropes). If your requirements later change, we can’t guarantee to provide an appropriately sized pitch. We are unable to accept bookings for American-style motor homes.

If you’d like a particular pitch without electricity, water or drainage, please give us a call and we can arrange that for you.

Your pitch will be ready on arrival day by 12pm (midday). When you get here, please use the arrivals area provided at the entrance to the park. This space is available from midnight on the first day of your holiday, should you arrive early. To avoid disruption to other guests, the latest time you can move onto your pitch is 10pm on your arrival day. If for any reason you do not arrive on the date booked, and if you haven’t contacted us with a reason for the delay, the pitch may be re-let from 6pm on the next day.

We will try our hardest to allocate the pitch of your choice, but acceptance of a booking is not conditional on the allocation of a particular pitch.

Your pitch number and directions to it will be confirmed on arrival. If you are in any doubt about whether you are on the correct pitch, please check with a member of staff as anyone on the wrong pitch may be asked to move.

While we’ll do our best to help, if you would like to extend your stay beyond the booked dates we are unable to guarantee that the same pitch will  be available.

  • Keep the dog on a short lead (two metres) within the park at all times.
  • Make use of the designated field to exercise your dog off a lead.
  • Clean up after your dog.
  • Do not leave your dog unattended at any time.

We may ask owners to remove dogs from the park if they become a nuisance or danger to other guests.

Four hours’ free parking is provided for visitors (up to 10pm) in the designated area. For visits longer than four hours, there is a parking charge of £4.50. Cars are parked at the owner’s risk. For insurance reasons, use of the park facilities is  for guests only.

  • We ask that you do not use generators.
  • We are unable to accept gazebos, event shelters or
    day tents on site.
  • No refunds will be given if you leave the park before
    the end of your booked holiday, unless this is due to a breach of some obligation on our part, which would justify cancelling the holiday.
  • The prices listed include VAT.
  • The information supplied on your booking form will be stored on our computer for administrative purposes. We will never share this information with a third party (Data Protection Act 1984).
  • Some of our facilities may be reduced or curtailed according to the season. The swimming pool, bar, restaurant and shop will be open from the spring bank holiday to mid-September.



We hope you will have a fantastic stay but if you have a complaint about anything during your holiday please  let a staff member know immediately. If you’d like to follow it up after leaving, we ask that you get in touch within  28 days of departure.

This includes a copy of our terms and conditions and a booking form, both in large print.
