Sun Haven Valley Country Holiday Park Cornwall

Tent Pitching & Caravan Siting requirements for Whitsun week, July & August

- For most of the year your booking will give you a double size pitch about 16m wide (subject to location) - BUT

during Whitsun week, July & August in order to meet the County Copuncils requirements for a 3m spacing between tents, we need you leave a 1.5m strip down either side of your pitch which must be left free of cars, tents, gazebo’s & other equipment. If your pitch is on the central island there must also be a 1.5m gap from the tent to the fence, though this area may be used for tables, chairs,barbecues etc). IF your pitch is next to one of our 3m "spacing strips" or next to a pathway the inter-tent spacing needs to be 6m across the strip. These pathways & 3m gaps have been deliberately left unused and may not be occupied by anyone for parking or storage

Tents should also be 2m from the road, but this is the space usually used for car parking. (Please see diagram below (not to scale)

On our camping pitch sizes sheet you will find a table of “usable pitch” sizes. Please ensure that your tent & other equipment needs no more than the usable area given, as alternative accommodation may not be available if you cannot fit onto the usable area of the pitch. 
W hen you arrive on site We will accept alternatives to the above in order to comply with  a minimum 3m gap between tents & 1.5m to the fence on the central island

Caravan Siting requirements

During Whitsun week, July & August there must be a 6m gap between caravans of which 3m may be taken by an awning or tent of less than 4.6 sq. m. but again the 1.5mstrip around the pitch must be left clear (Caravans/awnings must also be 2m from the road – the space often used for car parking and on the central island they must be 3m clear of the dividing fence).
On our pitch sizes sheet you will find a table of “usable pitch” sizes. Please ensure that your caravan, awning and other equipment is no bigger than the usable area given, as alternative accommodation is not available if you cannot fit onto the usable area of the pitch .
Unless we agree an alternative, your caravan will have to be on the left side of the pitch looking from the road with the wheel axle parallel to the road and the side of the caravan 1.5m from the pitch boundary. (Please see diagram below (not to scale).
Where 3m gaps have been left between pitches these may not be used by anyone, particularly excluding parking or storage.
If you are in any doubt please do not hesitate to call us
