Thank you your lovely comments and pleased to hear you had a good holiday. We were sorry to hear about the parking fine but as you can appreciate parking is at a premium in the whole of the Newquay area and to stop illegal parking on our private land, as has happened all to often in the past, it has to be policed vigilantly. This is why we state that the parking permit must be clearly displayed at all times in the vehicle.
