Camel Prospect Welcome Notes

Thank you for choosing to stay at Camel Prospect. We hope you have a great holiday! Here are a few notes to let you know about the features of the house.

If you need any assistance during your stay here, please give us a call and we will be happy to help.


The block paved area in front of the house is your designated parking space within the courtyard area. To maximise your space we suggest parking your cars in the following way:



The upstairs living area at Camel Prospect uses a Lutron control panel to allow you to choose different lighting moods. The panel is on your right as you walk in and has 4 different preset scenes for you to choose from. The little black buttons are as follows (from top to bottom):

Scene 1. General Task Lighting

Scene 2. Bright Lighting

Scene 3. Dinner Lighting

Scene 4. Movie Lighting

The chrome light switch next to the Lutron unit turns on the stairway lighting.

Water Stopcock & Fuseboard Locations

In the unlikely event that you need to isolate the incoming water supply to the house for any reason, the stopcockis located behind the little door at the bottom of the wooden shelves to right of the fridge. If you need to turn the electric off for any reason, the fuseboard is in the top right of the cupboard to the left of the sink.

Mechanical Ventilation Heat Recovery Unit

The property uses a mechanical ventilation heat recovery unit, which brings a constant supply of fresh outside air to each bedroom (this is pre-warmed), and expels the stale air from the bathrooms and kitchen. This system helps to improve air quality and reduce humidity which can often be a problem for houses in Cornwall which don’t use this sort of system. You don’t have to do anything as it is self-maintaining, but you may notice a gentle background hum of its operation.

Central Heating & Underfloor Heating

The Central heating for the house is currently set for mornings and evenings but it is relatively easy to reprogram if you need a different schedule at any point. Let us know if you need any help at all with this.  The thermostat to control the heating is located to the left of the door outside the bunkbed room.

Central Heating Instructions

The underfloor heating is set to heat the main bathroom to an amibient temperature automatically. If you would like this to be changed at all it’s probably best to let us know and we’ll pop round and do it for you as the programming on it is a bit fiddly.


  1. Make sure all the plugs to the left of the TV are switched on.
  2. Then, to turn on the TV use the remote controller with the TV sticker on it. 
  3. To access the TV channels use the remote with the TV CHANNELS sticker on it.

If you have any trouble getting the channels to show once you have followed these steps then try the following:

  1. Press the Source button on the TV remote controller to make sure that this is set to HDMI 1.
  2. If you are still having problems, just give us a call and I’ll talk you through it!

Spare HDMI Cable If You Have Brought Your Own Laptop

To the right of the unit below the TV is a spare HDMI cable which you can plug your laptop into to use it for streaming etc. You need to use the TV remote Controller to change the source to HDMI-2.

Kitchen and Washing Machine

The switches to turn on the dishwasher, oven, hob and extractor fan are situated above the worktop and are labelled accordingly. The switch for the worktop lights is to the right of the sink. There is a handheld spark igniter provided in the cup to the right of the cooker hob to help light the gas rings.

The washing machine is in the little courtyard room accessed from the main bedroom’s patio doors.

Hairdryer, Iron, Hoover and Mop

There’s a hairdryer and an iron in the right hand cupboard under the breakfast bar facing the livingroom seating  area. The ironing board is under the bottom bunk bed. There is a hoover in the little boiler cupboard in the corner of the upstairs living area. There is a dustpan and brush underneath the sink and the broom and a mop are in the outside courtyard washing machine room.   

Bins and Recycling

Black bin bags go into the metal bin outside the house once they are full. Bin day is on Thursday morning so you can leave any full black bin bags at the entrance to the courtyard by the main road on a Wednesday evening where you’ll see other courtyard residents have left theirs.

Any recyclables can be separated and left in the coloured recycling bags outside, next to the metal bin and we will deal with them on changeover day:

Orange bag: Plastic and Metal

blue bag: Paper and Cardboard

black plastic box: Glass
