The Maenporth Estate Code of Conduct

For individual safety and security, the Estate Code must be adhered to at all times.

The Maenporth Estate offers a tranquil country and seaside retreat. Everyone within its boundaries is expected to abide by the code of conduct and to respect the privacy and property rights of others.

To maintain this first-class quality and exclusiveness the Maenporth Estate Company Limited and the property owners are governed by legal articles, covenants, rules etc., including statutory health and safety regulations, and all are legally bound to implement these on behalf of Maenporth Owners Limited – the Code of Conduct is based on these legal requirements.

Registration - For legal and security reasons all Estate residents are required to register at the Leisure Centre Reception on arrival (or as soon as possible thereafter) giving name, property number and vehicle details. The Estate is private and solely for the use of property owners, their guests and holiday-let residents. It is not open to the public. Friends of holiday-let residents (i.e. people not actually residing on the Estate) are not permitted to use either the leisure facilities or the grounds of the Estate. Problems should be referred to either the Estate Manager or to a staff member.

Access is via the security gate –the security code is not to be passed to anyone without permission. Estate roadways have a maximum 10mph speed limit. Pedestrian access throughout the Estate is solely via paths and roadways – not over lawns and flowerbeds. Please respect communal areas which are maintained by the estate staff and are not for personal usage and most certainly not to be used as play areas. Pay attention to signs and no litter please.

  • they feel may not wish to comply with our pool safety rules;
  • may appear to be under the influence of alcohol and other intoxicating/narcotic substances;
  • who will not comply with the children/adult or adult/carer ratios and rules;
  • any parent or carer who staff feel will not, or is not keeping constant contact or behaving responsibly towards their charges.

Please note mobile phones, cameras and videos are not permitted in the pool or on poolside. CCTV is in operation in the pool area. This is used as part of the pool supervision and our aim is to provide a safe environment for swimmers.

In the swimming pool and changing areas, please be careful as floors may be wet.
