Following your booking and confirmed deposit/balance payment you will receive a receipt confirming your payment. All deposits are non-refundable.  Please bring your booking receipt when checking in at reception.   Any booking that has not had its balance paid by the due date will be cancelled with all monies already paid being forfeited.  All bookings will become due for payment 42 days before arrival, this can be done by logging into your booking or calling us to pay.

Conditions of Booking

We reserve the right to decline or terminate the booking of any guest(s) whose party make-up or behaviour interferes or may interfere with the general comfort of other guests.  In this event no refunds will be made.  Porthtowan Tourist Park & its facilities are intended for family holidays.  We are therefore sorry that we cannot accept any parties of single people, unless by prior agreement with us directly.

Arrival & Departure time

Your pitch should be available from 1pm on the day of arrival, latest check in time is 6pm. No arrivals are allowed before 1pm or after 6pm.  Your pitch should be vacated and clear by no later than 11am on the day of departure.

Due to the current trend for larger tents, awnings, motorhomes and caravans, anyone arriving with a unit ( including all guy ropes and additional pup tents and gazebos ) that will not fit within the pitching area may be asked to leave or move pitch ( if available ).

Any request for a specific area of the site when booking cannot be guaranteed, especially during the peak time of school holidays, we reserve the right to alter pitches which may have been previously allocated or chosen, this will only be done in extreme circumstances.

Once you have arrived on site no refunds can be given, if for any reason, you decide to leave before the confirmed departure date.

Maximum Unit Length

We may be able to accommodate caravans, motorhomes, trailer tents and campervans over 8.2 metres, but we must be contacted before booking, to check suitability.

Charging of Electric Vehicles

We DO NOT have the facility to charge electric vehicles on site.  The charging of Electric Vehicles at your pitch is not permitted at anytime as our electricity system will not support this.


Children remain the responsibility of their parents or guardians at all times. It is particularly important that you always know where your children are, and that you provide adequate supervision for them at all times.

Changes to your holiday before or during your stay.

We cannot accept responsibility or compensation for circumstances beyond our control including (but not limited to) industrial disputes, natural disasters, fire, technical problems, bad weather and acts of government.

In the event of Force Majeure being imposed, the park shall not be liable for the refund of holiday expenses. In agreement with the guest we would move the affected booking to suitable dates within the next 18 months. This would be subject to availability. The guest would be liable for any increase in price this may entail. Circumstances amounting to force majeure include any event which the owner(s) could not, even with all due care, foresee or avoid. Such circumstances include the destruction or damage of your Holiday-Home / Caravan (which cannot reasonably be remedied to a satisfactory standard before the start of your holiday) through fire, flood, explosion, storm or other weather damage, break-in, criminal damage or any similar event. Such circumstances also include riots or civil strife, industrial action, natural or man made disaster, fire, adverse weather conditions, war or threat of war, national emergency, natural disaster, forced closure by Government or official body, actual or threatened terrorist activity and all similar situations beyond our control. We recommend purchasing holiday insurance, to help for those unforeseen events.

After you have paid your Deposit/Balance you may wish to change some elements of the Holiday, e.g. dates or duration. We will try to meet your request, all changes will incur a £20.00 admin fee.  It may be necessary for you to cancel your break due to illness, accident or change of circumstances. We cannot guarantee a refund of any of the monies paid, however we will endeavour to come to an arrangement.  Failure to arrive without satisfactory explanation or written cancellation will not be entitled to a transfer of stay.  Bookings may not be able to be amended within 28 days of arrival, we recommend purchasing holiday insurance, to help for those unforeseen events.
