We do not warrant that the service is fault free or fit for any particular purpose, or that our system is secure. Guests must assume all responsibility and risk for the use of the service. Furthermore, we cannot be held responsible should the service be interrupted, limited or curtailed due to maintenance and repair work, transmission or equipment limitations/failures or due to an emergency.

Electric Vehicle Charging including E-Scooters & E-Bicycles

Unfortunately at this time we do not have electric vehicle charging points at any of our properties. Please be aware that for health and safety reasons we explicitly forbid the charging of EVs, E-Scooters and E-Bicycles via a regular three-pin plug into our domestic sockets or using an extension lead trailing across the property or through windows. Our electrical sockets are not designed to support the loads and it would be too dangerous. Furthermore, such charging is not permitted under the terms of our insurance.

No Smoking

Smoking is not permitted inside any of our properties or communal areas.


The Management reserves the right to decline acceptance of any booking and to expel anyone whose conduct is deemed to be detrimental to the applicable property and the comfort of all other guests. In addition, charges may apply where through unacceptable behaviour, disruption or severe inconvenience is caused to fellow guests. We are sure this ruling can only prove beneficial for the vast majority of clients.


Well behaved dogs are welcome in selected properties where stated, subject to compliance with site rules, supplied on arrival. If unsure, please ask when booking.

Assistance dogs are welcome in any of our properties free of charge, however, advance booking in writing (admin@breaksincornwall.com) is essential. This is necessary for us to adjust our service to best meet the needs of the individual. Furthermore, since our pet-free properties are advertised as such, it is important that we allow extra cleaning time after check out. Please note therapy dogs or “comfort dogs” are not currently classed as assistance dogs, and we regret such dogs are not permitted in our pet free properties.

With the exception of assistance dogs we regret that pets cannot be accepted at Beachcombers, White Lodge, Porth Veor Manor, Porth Sands, Sandpiper Cottages and Waterwitch Cottage. Furthermore, at our other sites please note dogs are accepted in selected properties only where indicated. It is also not permitted to leave pets unattended in your holiday property or in our car parks.

If a dog/s are found in any non-dog property without our written permission a heavy fine will be levied.

NB Pet Allergies: As some of our self catering venues accept dogs, it is vitally important that at the time of booking you advise us if you or any member of your party have a dog hair allergy. Please ensure that if applicable, this information has been detailed by us on your confirmation and if not, please seek such written confirmation.
