How to Enjoy Your Barbecue


  • Before proceeding, make certain that you understand the IMPORTANT INFORMATION section of this
  • Your barbecue is not designed to be used with more than 50% of the cooking area as a solid plate — this includes baking Full coverage will cause excessive build-up of heat and damage the barbecue. This is not covered by warranty.

Preparation Before Cooking

To prevent foods from sticking to the cooking surface, please use a long-handled brush to apply a light coat of cooking or vegetable oil before each barbecuing session.  (Note: When cooking for the first time, paint colours may change slightly as a result. This is normal and should be expected.) During use, the protective coating may come off the cooking surface. This is normal and is not harmful. Line the drip pan with aluminium foil. This will make clean-up easy.

Lighting the Main Burner

  • Open the barbecue
  • Ensure all knobs are in the off Open the gas control valve on the gas bottle or regulator.
  • Push in and turn the control knob to the Max Press the ignition button rapidly several times until left or right portion of the burner is lit. If burner fails to ignite, turn control knob to the off position and turn gas off at the bottle or regulator. Wait five minutes, then repeat the above steps. After successful lighting of one side, ignite the remaining portion of the burner. If the burner fails to ignite after following above procedure, turn all the knobs to the off position. Close the gas valve on the gas bottle. Wait 5 minutes, then repeat the above steps. If the barbecue still fails to light, please refer to the manual ignition instruction in the section below.

Grill Cooking

The burners heat up the flame tamer underneath the grill, which in turn heats the food on the grill. The natural food juices produced during cooking fall onto the hot flame tamer below and vaporise. The sub- sequent rising smoke bastes the food, as it travels upwards, imparting that unique barbecued flavour.

Roasting Hood Cooking if you have one

Barbecues equipped with a roasting hood give the option to form an ‘oven’ for roasting or baking food, such as joints of meat or whole chickens, etc. More even cooking of food will be achieved by using the barbecue with the hood down. However, this should only be done with the burners on low.

For best results, place the food you wish to bake or roast on a metal baking tray and set it on one side of the cooking grill.

Turn the burner directly under the food to the OFF position and turn all other burners to a LOW to MEDIUM position.

Close the hood to cook the food ‘indirectly’. Avoid lifting the hood unnecessarily as heat is lost every time the hood is opened. If the hood is opened during cooking, please allow extra time for the barbecue to regain its temperature and complete the cooking. Use the temperature gauge (if applicable) to monitor the heat of the barbecue.

If the internal heat becomes too high, turn the burners down to the low position. It is not necessary or advisable to have all of the burners on high when the hood is closed.

DO NOT ALLOW YOUR BARBECUE TO OVERHEAT. Take care when opening the hood as hot steam can be released on opening.

Flare-Up Control *Very Important Notice*

Flare-ups occur when meat is barbecued, and its fat and juices fall upon the hot flame tamer. Smoke of course helps give food its barbecued flavour, but it is best to avoid excessive flare-up to prevent food being burned. To control flare-ups, it is ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL to trim away excess fat from meat and poultry before grilling, use cooking sauces and marinades sparingly and try to avoid very cheap cuts of meat or meat products as these tend to have a high fat and water content. Also, the burners should always be placed on the low setting during cooking.

When flare-ups do occur, they can usually be extinguished by applying baking soda or salt directly onto the flame tamer. Always protect your hands when handling anything near the cooking surface of the barbeque and take care to protect yourself from the flames.

If a fat fire occurs, please see the instructions given below.

Fat Fires

Empty and clean the drip tray, of food debris after each cooking session. If the barbecue is to be used for large gatherings, it will be necessary to turn off and cool the barbecue every two hours to remove food debris from the drip tray and clean it out. The time between cleaning may need to be reduced if very fatty foods or cheap meat products are being cooked. Failure to do this may result in a fat fire, which may cause injury and could seriously damage the barbecue.

Cleaning & Maintenance                                             

End of Cooking Session

After each cooking session, turn the barbecue burners to the “high” position and burn for 5 minutes. This procedure will burn off cooking residue, thus making cleaning easier. Make sure the hood is open during this process.

Turning Off Your Barbecue

When you have finished using your barbecue, turn all the control valves fully clockwise to the “Off” position, then switch off the gas supply at the bottle.

Wait until the barbecue is sufficiently cool before closing the hood or lid.

Care and Maintenance                                                                                                                                              

Regularly clean your barbecue between uses and especially after extended periods of storage. Ensure the barbecue and its components are sufficiently cool before cleaning. Do not leave the barbecue ex- posed to outside weather conditions or stored in damp, moist areas.

  • Never douse the barbecue with water when its surfaces are
  • Never handle hot parts with unprotected

To extend the life and maintain the condition of your barbecue, we strongly recommend that the unit be covered when left outside for any length of time, especially during the winter months

Even when your barbecue is covered for its protection, it must be inspected on a regular basis as damp or condensation can form which may result in damage to the barbecue. It may be necessary to dry the barbeque and the inside of the cover. It is possible for mould to grow on any fat remaining on parts of the barbecue. This should be cleaned off smooth surfaces with hot soapy water.

Any rust that is found that does not come into contact with the food should be treated with a rust inhibitor and painted with barbecue paint or a heat resistant paint. A chrome cleaner may be used on chrome parts if required. To prevent rusting, wipe chrome plated parts with cooking oil after rinsing and drying.

Cooking Surfaces

When the barbecue has cooled, clean with hot soapy water. To remove any food residue, use a mild cream cleaner on a non-abrasive pad. Do not use scouring pads or powders as they can permanently damage the finish. Rinse well and dry thoroughly. Due to the weight of the cooking surfaces, we do not recommend cleaning in a dishwasher.

It is quite normal for surface rust to be present on the cooking surface. If rust appears between uses or in storage, clean with a soft brass wire brush. Be careful not to damage the cooking surface, re-oil and cure.


Provided that they are operating correctly, in normal usage, burning off the residue after cooking will keep the burners clean.

Flame Tamer

Remove any food residue from the flame tamer surface with a plastic or wooden scraper or brass wire brush.

Do not use a steel scraper or wire brush. Clean with hot soapy water and rinse well.

Drip Tray

After every use, empty and clean the drip tray of any fat or food particles, using a plastic or wooden scraper if necessary.

Failure to keep it clean, and excessive build up can result in a fat fire. This can be hazardous and severely damage the barbecue. This is not a fault in the barbecue and is therefore not covered by the terms of the warranty. If required, the tray can be washed in hot soapy water.


We hope you enjoy the facilities provided to you by Crylla Cottages.

We do however rely on our guests to leave the barbecue equipment clean & ready for the next guest to enjoy and would appreciate you doing this.

Prior to arrival all vehicles must be registered with Pine Lodge Reception.

We offer one allocated parking bay, marked in white for each property, with an exception of Number 31 Valley View & our Stable and Woodland cottages which have two each. For visitor or overflow vehicles yellow parking bays are available onsite, on a first come first served basis, and therefore not guaranteed. Prior consent from Crylla Valley Cottages is required for minibuses, motorhomes, sign written vans, trailers & long wheelbase vehicles. Please note there is a height restriction upon entering our site, please enquire if your vehicle is in excess of 3 metres tall. The speed limit on site is strictly 10 mph.  Your vehicles, their accessories and contents are left entirely at your own risk. We will not be responsible for any loss or damage from or to any vehicle from any cause whatsoever other than, in the case of negligence by us or our employees or agents.

There are currently no electrical charging points at Crylla Valley Cottages. Guests are strictly prohibited from charging their vehicle by taking a supply from the property unless they have agreed and paid for this prior to doing so. Also, in doing so they are responsible for ensuring any collecting leads etc. are made in a safe manner and do not cause a risk to anybody at all. No allowance is made within our rates for charging an electric vehicle and in doing so reasonable customers would understand why, without consent, taking this additional energy would be considered a criminal act. 

The nearest charging point for multiple electric vehicles is situated Shell Garage, Carkeel roundabout, Saltash PL12 6LF.

You can also charge your vehicle whilst visiting China Fleet Country Club PL12 6LJ. (Chargemaster Charging Station) – 1 slow device (2 connectors), 1 rapid device (3 connectors).

We are delighted that you chose to stay with us and hope you have an enjoyable holiday.

To assist us in maintaining our high standards of cleanliness, we would be grateful if you would vacate your accommodation by no later than 10am on the day of your departure.

It comes around all too soon, but before you leave us, we thought we would give you a helping hand!! Too often our guests are forgetting their belongings; it may be that it gives you a good excuse to return to us, but unfortunately, we cannot hang on to these forgotten items indefinitely! Having only limited storage space means we pass all lost property onto charity if it isn’t claimed within 2 weeks of any guest’s departure date.

So, with this in mind we have a double check list just for you;


  • Check all of the plug sockets for your charging devices; mobile phone chargers, camera chargers etc…


  • Remember your; mobiles, hairdryers, shavers, hair straighteners/curlers, laptops & chargers.


  • Check the DVD player; you may have packed the case but is the DVD in it?!


  • Is the Washing Machine or Tumble Dryer empty of your clothes?


  • Have you left any medication in the fridge or cupboard?


  • Are there any pyjamas under pillows or favourite bedtime toys in the cot?


  • Double check all your cupboards, draws and wardrobes for clothing.


  • Did you hang any coats or dressing gowns on the back of any doors?


  • Look under beds and around the sofas – you would be surprised where things can hide!


  • Any jewellery or reading glasses left on the bedside table?


  • Look in the bathroom cupboard for toothbrushes, toothpaste, lotions and potions.
  • China Fleet Club membership cards; make sure you have them ready to hand back into reception along with your keys.

In order for us to get the cottage clean and ready in time for our next guests please respect your check out time of 10am. We really hope you have enjoyed your time with us & hopefully we will see you again soon.

A Note for your Dog:

When staying at Crylla we are made to feel very welcome and at home, any do’s and don’ts they have here are out of the interest of all Crylla’s Visitors.

There is a fantastic large lawned area and great Woodland Walk where we can run freely together and explore our surroundings with lots of wildlife around to keep us amused! We are asked not to go onto the lawn area in front of reception, in the children’s play area or on the toddler’s lawn. 

In the interests of hygiene and respect for fellow visitors please ask your humans to dispose of your waste in the bins outside of our property or in the dog waste bins located at the entrance/exit of the Woodland Walk and Wildlife Meadow. Please keep the Crylla grounds foul free and children friendly.

I know I’m a family friendly dog but some children playing at Crylla don’t know me and I notice they can get nervous, because of this I won’t go onto the toddlers green; I’ll let the little ones play without me trying to join in.

As my best friend I trust you to know if I’m going to get excitable around children or other dogs and leave you responsible for putting my lead on, staying with me and taking the necessary care to keep the grounds on which everybody plays clean.

If you fancy taking me to the beach for a walk, you can check out the beach guides, supplied by Crylla but, don’t forget we are just as close to a walk on the moors!

I can’t wait to get out, did I hear you say walkies?

Crylla Valley Cottages are pleased to provide our guests with an Emergency Service. Hopefully, you will never need this service, but if you do, you will certainly appreciate having our trained service staff just a phone call away. Before you pick up the phone to call us, though, we want you to know what to expect.

This emergency service is free at the time of request. However, if the emergency is due to any act of negligence or responsibility of the guest then you will be liable to reimburse the cost of the call out and any works carried out. If an emergency call out is made that does not in fact qualify as one of the reasons stated here, then you will be charged a call out fee of not less than £100 (including VAT). Please note that during bank holidays such as Easter, Christmas, and New Year periods many suppliers close and therefore, getting spare parts for items such as boilers etc, can be difficult or simply not possible – whilst our contractors will do their best in these circumstances a fix may not be achieved.

Emergency Service is just that: service we provide to you in the event of a true emergency. We have developed a response procedure for emergencies and other situations that may arise during non-business hours. We believe that if you know what to expect from us, you will be better prepared to deal with an unexpected event.

For problems that could easily wait until the next working day, we kindly ask guests to show some common sense about this and not to use the emergency service. For example, if you have time to look the matter up on a website it is probably NOT an after-hour’s emergency. If you have lack of hot water, or a clogged drain, these are not emergencies at 9pm (or 3am). Please report them to reception via email [email protected] or telephone call 01752 851133 between 9:30am and 5:30pm.

In the event of an emergency (An unforeseen event that if not dealt with quickly would, via a reasonable opinion render the property unsafe/insecure; or cause further damage to the Property; or cause personal risk to the guests) please read the below advice.

Examples of what may constitute Emergencies

No Heat in your Property: 

This is only an emergency in extreme cold weather in wintertime and when the heating is not working due to mechanical malfunction. If this is the case then please ring the emergency number and we will provide alternative forms of heating.

No Electricity in your Property: 

Please check fuses have not blown, circuit breakers in the consumer unit are in the ‘ON’ position and that there hasn’t been a general power cut in the area. Please check that your own appliances are not blowing the trip switches (you can do this by unplugging everything, resetting the switches to the on position in the electricity consumer unit and then switching each appliance on in turn). If you still do not have electricity please ring the emergency number. Your help in this is much appreciated.

If you have had a power cut, your digital clock on the oven will be flashing, it is not set, therefore your main oven will not work. Please turn the switch off and on at the wall, then reset the time on the oven. If you have any difficulties, please refer to the manual.

Flooding of your Property: 

Please call the emergency number immediately if there is risk of damage to possessions or the property and you cannot contain the leak. Please turn off the stop cock to the broken pipe or to the exterior water main, if you can locate it, until a contractor arrives. Switch off electrics if the water leak is near lights or power outlets.  Please do everything within your power to contain any leaking or flooding. Please use buckets and bins to catch the water as far as possible and mop up and/or soak up with towels any loose water as quickly as possible to prevent damage. Your help in this is much appreciated.


If there is a fire

Evacuate the property immediately and keep a count of all occupants that have left the property.
Call 999 first!! Please then call the emergency number.

If it is a False Alarm

If you’re linked smoke detector system is sounding call the emergency number. If you have set the alarms off by mistake (i.e. burning the toast etc) you will need to open all windows and waft a newspaper etc near the smoke detector where the smoke is, in order to clear the smoke. Only once the smoke has cleared will the detectors stop sounding and reset themselves. Your help in this is much appreciated.

Total stoppage of the plumbing drain system

If your plumbing drain system ceases to work, none of your sinks, baths, showers or toilets will function properly, please call the emergency number.

The stoppage of one toilet or drain when other bathrooms are functional is not an emergency, see below.

Other “Life-Safety” or “Property Protection” issues

For any other “Life-Safety” or “Property Protection” issues arising from storm damage or criminal damage to the property or otherwise not listed, please use common sense before calling the emergency number as we will only be able to respond to real emergencies that cannot wait until the next working day. Your help in this is much appreciated.

Examples of what may NOT constitute Emergencies

No Hot Water in your Property

This may be considered an emergency ONLY if there has been no hot water for an extended period of time: days not hours. In the event of no hot water, and it is not during a contractor’s normal business hours, we may be unable to repair the problem in as timely a manner as we would like, so please be resourceful in the meantime. ( for example please boil a kettle for hot water but take care not to scold yourself; please use the electric shower if you have one) Your help in this is much appreciated.

Clogged or Backed Up Toilet

This may be considered an emergency ONLY if there is only one toilet in the property. In any case, please turn off the valve behind the toilet, shut the lid and clean up any mess – due to health issues Crylla Cottages representatives will generally not begin work until the area is cleaned up and essentially free of bacterial contaminants. Your help in this is much appreciated.

‘Break in’

In the unlikely event that your property is broken into, you will need to register the crime with the police and obtain a crime reference number. Please may we ask that you then leave a detailed voicemail on the Property Management number (or email us) providing details of the incident and the crime number that has been given. Should there be a need for the property to be made secure (broken windows/doors) please contact us on the emergency phone number. Your help in this is much appreciated.

The properties have water tanks that are heated up overnight, as you use the hot water this tank will refill with cold water. If you have fully occupied the property and you all shower/bath in the morning it will be unlikely you will be able to have a second shower in the evening. Should you want an additional hot water for a shower or bath push the emergency boost button beside the tank, do not use any hot water for an hour, then you should have enough to have a shower. The tank will fully reheat overnight.


If like us you are committed to helping reduce your impact on the environment we have listed below some ideas for your consideration.

If you can’t find ways to reuse it, then why not  Recycle? 

At Crylla Valley you can recycle your Mixed Glass, Paper, Cardboard, Plastics, Tins and Cans. We have designated recycling points over within Crylla for you to distribute the waste,  lease see our site map. 

You can recycle used batteries and carrier bags at reception. 

Please note all general waste is to go into the bins located outside of your property. When it  comes to our energy consumption saving is every bit as important. However small you think the change maybe you would be astonished with the difference you can make.

Here are a few  simple but effect ways to help:

1. Turn off at the plug or device and if possible unplug all devices when they are not in use; mobile phone, laptop, console, chargers, hairdryers, straighteners, coffee pots and lights.
Remember, standby is not off.

2. Wash clothes in colder water – most detergents will work just as well.

3. Re-use your towels; hang them up instead of throwing them down.

4. Run the dishwasher and the washing machine on full loads only.

5. Use the airer whenever possible avoiding the tumble dryer.

6. Take a quick shower instead of a bath.

7. Only boil a kettle with enough water for your needs.

8. Use a kettle to boil water for your saucepans and chop smaller to speed up cooking time.

9. Eat locally grown and unprocessed food.

10.Use the windows for light when the sun is out and turn lights off when you leave a room please.

Thank you for your support, from the team at Crylla Valley Cottages

We kindly ask you do not flush: ‘Flushable’ toilet wipes, sanitary towels, tampons and any other personal hygiene products. This will cause a serious blockage with our sewerage system resulting in the toilet becoming out of use and requiring an expensive repair.

Dispose of food fats and oils in the waste bin.

The bin outside your property will be emptied once a week. You will not need to move the bin anywhere. If you find your bin needs emptying beforehand, please inform reception. 

Using the site map please note where the recycling stations are situated around Crylla. There are separate bins for the following; mixed glass, plastic, tins & cans, paper & cardboard.

Reception also has facilities for you to recycle your carrier bags and old household batteries.

If your bins are overflowing please contact reception or put any additional waste in the blue bins behind reception. Do not leave any rubbish or food for the birds outside of the external bins as it will attract vermin.

Thank you for your consideration.
