1. On site facilities
Whilst we endeavour to provide all the facilities as advertised in our brochure, we regret that we are unable to accept liability for the temporary withdrawal of any facility due to Health & Safety reasons, mechanical breakdown or any circumstances beyond our control. Certain facilities may be restricted or unavailable outside peak periods. This particularly applies to bar and restaurant hours, shop opening times, children’s and evening entertainment, the Fish & Chip bar (Pentewan Plaice), arcade and boat launching service. Outside peak season (mid-July – end August) The Seahorse’s Crow’s Nest may on occasions be closed for private functions.
The speed limit throughout the site is 10 m.p.h. BEWARE OF CHILDREN. Vehicles may not be driven on the beach at any time, nor may they be driven across the site between the hours of midnight and 6am. On arrival each vehicle will be issued with a barrier code. This will allow the vehicle to pass freely through the entry/exit barriers until the paid up day of departure when passes must be returned to reception. All types of hoverboard and segways are not permitted. Motorised scooters may not be used on site unless road legal and covered by a valid certificate of insurance. Electric cars must not be charged on pitches - a charging point is available in The Seahorse car park.
3. Boats / Personal Watercraft (PWC)
Boats / Personal Watercraft (PWC) must be kept on the owner’s pitch. Any boat/PWC with a motor, no matter what size, must have third party insurance. Owners will be expected to give evidence of this along with their pitch confirmation. This applies to all boats on site excluding children’s toys. All boats/PWC will be issued with a pass on arrival. This pass must be displayed on the craft and any boat not displaying a valid pass will be subject to a surcharge of 50% in addition to the normal fee. Motorised crafts may only enter or leave the water by way of the red buoyed channel. No Boats / Personal Watercraft (PWC) may enter the area between the beach and the row of red buoys. This is a swimming only area. A launching service is provided for Boats / Personal Watercraft (PWC) between mid-May - mid-September. A charge is made for this service. Areas are set aside at each end of the beach for picking up and setting down water-skiers. 2, 3 or 4 seater Personal Watercrafts are allowed but for everyone’s safety, PWC must be registered at time of booking and insurance documents shown on arrival. Two stroke stand-up jet skis are not permitted on any part of the site, beach or harbour area.
