Should the cost of your holiday increase due to a date change the full balance would be required. However, should the cost of your holiday decrease we will not refund the difference but we will allow the difference to be used towards a further holiday cost within the next 12 months
Balances are now due in full 4 weeks prior to your arrival (previously 7 weeks)
Should the resort be closed or you are unable to travel and you want to re-book, you can only transfer the cost of your existing break

Immediately call our Reservations team for advice about what to do next. We will provide you with information about how to apply for a test and talk you through what happens next. Do not leave your lodge for any reason other than to go for your test. If it is confirmed that you have Covid-19, you will need to return home as soon as you reasonably are able to. You should use private transport only and drive yourself if you are well enough to do so safely.
If you are contacted by ‘Track & Trace’ during your stay with us and have been informed that you have been in contact with someone who has tested positive but you are not displaying symptoms, you will need to leave the resort immediately and travel home.
If you cannot reasonably return home (for example, if you are too unwell to travel or do not have a means of private transport available), you will need to discuss what to do with next with a healthcare professional and/or Cornwall Council. Our Reservations team can support you through this process and provide you with all the information you need over the phone.
If you develop symptoms of Covid-19 before you travel, please do NOT come to the resort and contact our reservations team immediately.
