Cornwall’s vibrant image has evolved from a rich history and culture which still lives and breathes through the sites and scenery scattered throughout the county today. And with over fifty miles of heritage coastline, stone circles, castles and a rich maritime heritage, it’s a history worthy of discovery and celebration. Here is just a small selection worthy of a detour.
The Oven (electric)
The oven is heated by two elements: one at the top of the oven and the other underneath the floor of the oven.
To heat the oven, turn the selector switch to the required function. The control panel illumination and oven light will remain on. Then turn the oven temperature control to the required temperature. The oven indicator light will immediately come on and will remain on until the oven reaches the set temperature. This light will then automatically go on and off during cooking as the oven thermostat maintains the correct temperature.
Food should not be placed on the floor of the oven.
For gas ovens, turn the oven selector to the desired position and depress either the knob or the igniter button to light the gas. Hold the knob for five seconds before releasing.
The Grill (electric)
Select cooking method by turning control knob to select the required grill setting. The interior light will come on and the grill is ready to use.
For grilling and toasting use full width grill setting, half grill is suitable for small quantities of food as only the inner part of the grill will heat up. Once you have chosen the required setting, the indicator will light and remain on until the required internal temperature is reached. The indicator will go on and off throughout cooking although the grill remains on. To turn the grill off turn selector switch to position 0.
For gas grills, follow the procedure for gas ovens using the grill selector.
Whilst the area is widely regarded as one of outstanding natural beauty we would remind guests that extreme care should be taken when walking. You should always keep to the established footpaths and keep clear of the edge of the highlands. Small children should be supervised at all times.
Each holiday home has a parking bay for one vehicle only. If you have additional vehicles please park them in one of the public parking areas. Please do not park on the grass or try to squeeze a second vehicle onto your parking place – we will ask you to move it.
Electric Vehicles parked alongside your accommodation should not be charged from the accommodation power supply. Please charge your vehicles at an appropriate EV charging point either on park or in the local area.
Praa Sands is a wonderful place for you to holiday with your dogs. Not only do they have the opportunity of enjoying the park, there is also so much for them to do in the local area including walking on the beach and exploring all around.
In order to ensure the enjoyment of everyone we would ask that you adhere to the following:
Keep your dog on a lead
You must keep your dog on a lead at all times when walking through the park and on the golf course. This applies to all dogs irrespective of how well trained they are!
Do not allow your dog to foul indiscriminately
Please ensure you always pick up any deposits left by your dog and place in the appropriate bins.
Do not allow your dog to be a nuisance
We would ask that dogs do not sit on the furniture or the beds. Dogs should only be left alone in the accommodation if you are sure that they will not bark to the point of annoying other customers or cause any damage to the lodge.
Your security deposit is taken through the booking system and will be returned to you 10 days after departure. We will ring-fence just £1 to help you manage your money. By doing this your bank has pre-authorised Haulfryn to debit your account £250.00 should we see fit. Rest assured no monies were taken at check-in although it may affect your account balance; this is our security deposit.
Within 24hrs of check-out, this holiday home shall be checked by a member of Haulfryn staff; if you leave the holiday home in the condition you found it then Haulfryn shall not claim the security deposit. If there are any damages, breakages, or missing items above the normal wear & tear of a holidaymaker, then Haulfryn shall claim the £250.00 security deposit you have authorised. Should Haulfryn feel it necessary to claim the security deposit post-check-out, you shall be notified as soon as possible as to the reason.
