There are some major advantages to self-catering holidays, especially when visiting places like Cornwall. Plumping for a cosy cottage in a picturesque fishing village is a great option, giving you a space to call your own and the joys of having said fishing village on your doorstep. But what if the weather doesn’t play ball? How far away will you need to park your car? What facilities are available in the village and how much will they cost you to use every day? Will you have any outside space or a garden? How close are the other places you want to explore on your family holiday in Cornwall?
This is where a unique luxury self-catering resort like Gwel an Mor really comes into its own. We provide every luxury and homely feature that a self-catering cottage might provide, but with the quality of service and the great facilities you would normally only find in a luxury hotel.
In your top of the range lodge you can enjoy private hot tubs and roaring wood burners. You’ll have smart TV, comfy, contemporary furnishings and all the items you could possibly need to cook up a storm in your modern contained kitchen. Both Gwel an Mor’s Scandinavian and modern contemporary eco-lodges make a perfect home-away-from-home. We have pet friendly lodges too, so you needn’t miss out on your favourite spot just because you want to bring mans’ best friend.
Each quirky lodge has its own parking spot, so it’s easy to unload your holiday essentials, shopping, bicycles and any gear for outdoor activities. Gwel an Mor is less than 10 minutes from the A30, Cornwall’s main trunk road. So you’ll skip West to St Ives, South to Falmouth, and North to Newquay in less than thirty minutes.
But here is the big advantage! Unlike your usual holiday cottage, you’ll also have access to a multitude of facilities, free of charge, so that the whole family can be kept entertained at all times. At Gwel an Mor, you’ll find an indoor heated pool, gym, sauna and steam room to relax in – perhaps starting or ending your day with a dip in a pool with far reaching views of the sea. There is also putting, croquet and petanque (French boules) available at reception, alongside DVDs to borrow.
If the weather isn’t quite so great, a Cornish cottage can feel a little cramped. A resort can provide far more opportunity to entertain and stretch your legs, or just relax. At Gwel an Mor we have The Wellbeing Spa for treatments and pampering, The Terrace Restaurant for lunch, dinner and take away meals, Feadon Farm for wildlife and conservation experiences and the recently completed Base Camp for soft play, climbing walls, coffee and food. Most towns in Cornwall won’t offer all of this, but at a resort like Gwel an Mor you’ll find it all on one site. In the coming months there will also be a fully stocked fishing lake and a golf course. Should you want to stay a little closer to your accommodation you’ll still be spoilt for a choice of activities.
And because the resort is set within its own spacious landscaped private grounds, well set back from any road, there is a sense of seclusion and peacefulness, whilst most ordinary holiday cottages are set on a road and so have passing traffic.
Gwel an Mor has an unrivalled reputation for cool self-catering breaks in Cornwall. Over the years, the 5 star self-catering resort in Cornwall has amassed 19 awards – recently picking up the 2015 Cornwall Business Award for Customer Service. This customer service is what really sets us apart from your usual holiday cottage, with local knowledge at reception, the spa, the restaurant and all the secrets that our luxury resort has to share with you.
