Terms and conditions of booking a holiday at The Old Rectory

Reservations are from Saturday to Saturday between May and September. At other times of the year, and with late availability in High season, bookings will normally be accepted for shorter periods. Please see our Short Breaks page.  Short breaks are charged at 1/5 of the weekly rate per night for stays of 3 nights and 1/6 per night for 4 nights or more.  2 night stays are 50% of the weekly tariff.

We expect to have your accommodation ready by 3.30pm on the day of your arrival and are unable to accept arrivals before this time. We ask all our customers to vacate their accommodation by 9.30am on the day of departure. Arrival after 7pm must be pre-arranged.

If you wish to make a booking please telephone to confirm availability and to discuss any other questions you may have. When letting has been agreed the accommodation will be reserved for seven days to enable you to send the completed booking form. The Proprietors must receive this booking form and the deposit before a reservation can be guaranteed. The booking form must be signed by a member of the party who is over the age of 18; in signing the form this individual accepts responsibility for the conduct of his party and also accepts the Terms and Conditions of Booking detailed herein.

Please note that a confirmed booking constitutes acceptance of our terms and conditions even in the absence of the booking form.


We are strictly a no smoking establishment.


A deposit of one third of the total charge must be enclosed with the booking form. If not received within seven days of the reservation the accommodation may be let elsewhere. The balance will be due not later than 28 days before the date of arrival. Directions to The Old Rectory are sent with the receipt for the balance of the payment. Payment can be made either by bank transfer, or UK cheques. If used, UK cheques should be made payable to "The Old Rectory - Lanreath".

Services and electricity charges

Bed linen and electricity are provided within the cost of the accommodation. Laundry facilities are available. Towels are not included but are available at a cost of £6 per person (2 bath towels supplied).  Heating is by night storage heaters in all apartments except Caerhays, which has oil fired heating and Heligan.  Heating is provided within the cost of your apartment except if requested during the summer months (June, July and August), when an additional charge of £20 per apartment per week is made.


The booking deposit is not normally returnable. However, if 28 days notice is given, and the accommodation re-let, it will be refunded less £25 to cover administration. If the accommodation is not re-let, the deposit will not be returned, and you will be liable for the full balance of the account. We strongly recommend that you take out cancellation insurance, we will send you details after receiving your deposit.

In the event of cancellation of any booking by the Proprietors the liability of the Proprietors will be limited to a refund of any monies paid.

No accommodation may be occupied by more than the number of persons specified on the Application Form. In certain cases additional beds can be provided at £30 per week but this must be with the express agreement of the Proprietors. There are a limited number of Cots available for very young children; but please note that Bed Linen for Cots will not be supplied. We regret that parties of all males or all females may not always be accepted.


Pets may be accepted under some circumstances but only by prior arrangement and at an additional cost of £20. Conditions of stay will be discussed individually but include precautions to ensure there is no chance of pets introducing any infestation to the apartment or causing damage.  We are able to accept a maximum of 2 small or one large dog.

Defects, Cleaning and Damage

Deficiencies, Damage to, or Failure of, any items in the accommodation or on the site must be reported to the Proprietors without delay. Repairs must not be undertaken by residents. In the event that visitors fail to carry out suitable cleaning on departure or there is excessive or unreported damage then it may be necessary to raise a separate invoice to cover the costs incurred. Payment is required within 14 days.


The proprietors cannot accept liability for any personal injury sustained by any visitor on the premises or loss or damage to any personal property brought onto the site, however caused.

Swimming Pool and Gardens at The Old Rectory

This is unattended and free to residents. Children must always be closely supervised by an adult member of your party - they are not allowed in the pool area without such supervision. The pool will not be open out of season; with availability restricted to the period from the end of May until early September. Friends visiting our customers, and wishing to use the pool, must obtain the permission of the Proprietors; if the proprietors are not available no permission is given.  Given that there is no life guard, we ask that adults have a buddy either swimming with them or on poolside in case of emergency.

It is a condition of the booking that no liability attaches to the Proprietors for any pool accident arising wholly or in part to our non-supervision of the pool and gardens. The person making the booking agrees to indemnify the Proprietors against any claim made against the Proprietors arising out of such circumstances by any member of their party.
