We had some unexpected visitors today at Gwel an Mor. Friends from another hotel decided to pay us a visit and have a look at what we have to offer here at our site in Portreath.
We chatted about lodges, the swimming pool, the amazing views and the tranquil atmosphere. As we talked we agreed the perfect holiday comes down to a few simple things that make guests know that they are important to us.
In short, the little things.
They may not cost money, they may seem incidental, but they are there making sure your holiday is heaven.
So with this in mind we put together a list of our staffs’ favourite things. The bits you might have missed.
Gwel an Mor Eggs – suggested by Georgie, PR Manager
If you are lucky you can grab yourself half a dozen free range eggs at Feadon Farm. They are colourful, tasty and at £1 a really holiday bargain. You can even thank the chickens yourself as they strut their stuff a few hundred yards away.
The Herb Garden – suggested by Tracey, Reception & Revenues Manager
In the centre of the Gwel an Mor site is a herb garden stocked full with all you could need to spice up your cooking. From mint to fennel you can help yourself to add a dash of flavour to your evening meal. As our lodges are self catering you can’t remember everything from the kitchen cupboard, but you can rest assured that we have this one covered for you.
The Sea Field – suggested by Liz Marketing Manager
Through the woods and over the stream is a hidden spot that is well worth a visit on a sunny afternoon. The Sea Field is small but perfect, with spectacular views across Portreath bay and a picnic bench just right for soaking up the sun. The peace of the spot chases all the stresses and strains of modern life away in your own private piece of Gwel heaven.
Buckets and spaces – Help yourself! - suggest by Emma, Receptionist
A family holiday would not be complete with a trip to the beach – but disaster you’ve forgotten your bucket and spade! Well never fear you’ll find plenty at Gwel an Mor. Help yourself to a bucket, spade and even some sand moulds and head to the beach.
Tapas – suggested by Liz, Events Manager
The Terrace at Gwel an Mor is already riding high on a fantastic reputation – but have you tried the tapas? Chef Joe is originally from Spain, so to say tapas is his passion would be an understatement. Choose from a mouth-watering selection, or pick a sharing board. The restaurant is open to locals and guests alike, so grab your friends and enjoy some tapas as the sun sets over the sea. Glorious .
Now that we have shared our favourites you’ll have to seek them all out when you next visit, but until then, what are your favourite things about Gwel an Mor?
