Cornish Quality Application and Expectations – Self Catering

To apply for a Cornish Quality inspection for a self-catering property, please complete the online form below.

We must ensure the properties we promote are of a minimum standard, and are operated legally.   

There are many aspects to the inspection, but they are not unreasonable.  Visit Bude is a badge of quality in its own right and therefore we must maintain the brand excellence for the benefit of our members (who deliver the Visit Bude promise) and for our visitors (who expect the Visit Bude promise).  If you need any help or advice, we are happy to visit the property for a one hour pre-inspection priced at £40.

Inspection Day!

The inspection is very important. We need to know that the properties we are promoting meet or exceed our quality expectations. There's nothing to worry about though, all we expect is that your property is safe, clean and legal and that the product you are selling is an honest and true reflection of the of the property. Therefore, when we visit the property, it must be presented 'as if a paying visitor was arriving. If you can arrange safe access for us to visit, you do not need to be at the property when the inspection takes place. Should you fail the inspection, we are here to to work with you, not against you. '.

I confirm that the property will be presented 'as if a paying visitor was arriving'
You will receive a confirmation email once you submit this form. We will then arrange for an inspector to visit the property at a mutually convenient time.
