What does silence after 10.30pm (22.30hrs) mean”?
At all times we expect people to be reasonable, by keeping any noise to a minimal level, bearing in mind how close the nearest tent is, but we still don't accept late night "sessions" - whether they're discussing their events of the day, the days ahead, the weather (or whatever) if anyone else can hear you.
Many of our customers say ""We've been to lots of parks with a silence-after-10.30 (22.30hrs) policy, but at Polruan Holidays it really does work". - Well that’s because we work hard at it. We don't have noisy teenagers because we have no disco, no arcade, and no organised entertainment, we do not allow large groups or parties of any age and we sometimes may even refuse large families. If you disturb the sleep of people around you by” intentional" noise, then you will be leaving site the following morning, in a park where the noisiest sound is usually the sea or the fishing boats ( less than half a mile away) it doesn't take much to be overheard. We can't stop the noise of visitors returning back to the park after an enjoyable evening out or someone snoring, the upset baby crying, the early hours "mummy, I want a wee", the sounds of nature or the cattle within the fields around us, but we will do our best to try and ensure that everyone has a good night sleep.
SO if wanting to talk till late hours with a beer or two, in a serious factor you need to question yourselves can we be heard by others?
To sum up - Can you talk after 10.30pm (22.30hrs)? – yes of course, but no if you disturb someone else or you can be heard from outside of the boundaries of your pitch, remember sound travels further at night.
We do have many guests who sit outside their tents or caravans, reading, admiring the sea, or just star glazing with a glass of wine or a beer and enjoying the silence.
