Make 2019 the year you learn to play golf

Friday 18th January, 2019

Make 2019 the year you learn to play golf

Have you always wanted to try your hand at golf but don’t know where to start? For novices, golf can sometimes appear a daunting game to learn.

Now Landal Gwel an Mor can help! We have teamed up with a brilliant new programme called Golf Access which has been designed to get complete beginners out on the golf course and developing their skills in a way that is engaging and fun. What’s more, you will learn alongside people of a similar ability, so you can build your skills together.

Ideal for beginners

Golf Access is an exciting format that has been designed to encourage new participants to play golf for the very first time, whether they are adults or juniors. You play on a shortened course with a forward tee, to make the process more enjoyable and to enhance your overall experience of the game.

There are nine colour-coded levels for players to work through. You can only progress to the next level once you have achieved the target score for your existing level.  In this way, the scheme helps you to improve at a steady rate, aiming for the goal of eventually achieving an official golf handicap that would enable you to join a golf club.

A fantastic way to learn

One of the great benefits of Golf Access is that it gets you out on a real golf course at an early stage, rather than relying on driving ranges or practice grounds, which makes the whole experience much more rewarding. In addition, playing with a group creates a really enjoyable social occasion.

You are also in the capable hands of expert tutors. At Landal Gwel and Mor, our Golf Access events are managed by Russell Binney, a fully qualified PGA Professional. Russell says:

"I enjoy coaching all abilities and ages of golfer, and work with the individual’s needs to develop towards their maximum potential."

An exceptional golf course in Cornwall

The other great plus point of learning at Landal Gwel an Mor is that you get to play on our unique golf course, The Famous Nine. This has been inspired by legendary golf courses from around the world, so each hole represents an individual and exciting challenge. When you are learning, you will enjoy coming back to The Famous Nine again and again, to see if you can beat your previous best on each hole.

The Famous Nine features the very latest all-weather greens, ensuring that the course is playable all year round. So no need to wait for summer to start learning this amazing game!

To find out more about our Golf Access scheme and to get dates for upcoming sessions, call our team on 01209 842354 and make 2019 the year you learn to play golf!

Whatever the weather, you can enjoy a refreshing swim in our warm indoor pool. Our Clubhouse also boasts a fully equipped gym plus sauna and steam room.

Our unique Feadon Farm Wildlife Centre is an experience not to be missed. This is the only animal conservation centre of its kind in Europe and gives you the opportunity to get close to some really fascinating creatures, in the capable hands of our wildlife experts. Our Meet the Animals sessions allow youngsters to encounter beautiful reindeer and foxes. You can also experience falconry, rock pooling, night walks and an enthralling badger watch.

Fantastic fun for kids…

The kids can really let off steam at our Base Camp, one of the finest indoor activity centres in Cornwall, covering over 2,000 square feet of soft play area. This houses three floors of zip wires, ball ponds and slides, while there is a separate soft play area for children under three. Older children and adults can take on the challenge of our 10 climbing walls, which use the latest and safe Clip ‘n’ Climb technology. Parents can watch all the fun from Base Camp Café, which is open all day.

Our 4 favourite dog-friendly winter walks in Cornwall

Friday 28th December, 2018

At Landal Gwel an Mor, we specialise in pet-friendly breaks and we do all we can to make your best friend feel as welcome as possible. All our doggy guests get a luxury fleece bed and blanket to use, as well as their own toy.

Winter is a fabulous time to get out and enjoy the great outdoors with your pooch – and Cornwall has a fantastic range of dog-friendly walks for you to enjoy. 

Here are four of our favourites to whet your appetite:

Woodland Walk: Tehidy Country Park

Welcome to doggy heaven! Just a few miles from Landal Gwel an Mor, you’ll find the largest area of woodland in West Cornwall. This lovely country park has nine miles of paths and over 250 acres of woods and lakes to explore. So you can choose between a light walk or something more strenuous. Tehidy Country Park has its own Visitor Centre & Café, where you can buy light snacks and drinks. Beautiful and tranquil, this is a wonderful place to visit at any time of the year and is home to a wide variety of plants and animals.

Beach Walk: Watergate Bay, near Newquay

Watergate Bay is a glorious two-mile stretch of sandy beach which is dog-friendly all year round. Popular with both surfers and family groups, Watergate Bay has lovely surf and outstanding water quality. This is a place where your canine friend can safely run and explore, from waves to rockpools. There is plenty of convenient parking right by the bay, with handy outlets serving takeaway food and drink. The Beach Hut bistro, which is open for breakfast and lunch during the winter months, is also very welcoming to dogs. 

Trail Walk: The Mineral Tramways

These trails are a result of Cornwall’s rich mining heritage. They follow the routes that would have been taken by trams and trains that transported copper and tin ore from the mines to coastal ports such as Portreath. Today, they form a network of over 37 miles of multi activity trails, most of which are level and free of traffic, making them perfect for dog-walkers. Luckily, a stretch of the Mineral Tramways passes right by Landal Gwel an Mor. 

The Portreath Branchline Trail is a 5.5 mile trail which follows the route of the old Portreath Railway, linking Portreath with the towns of Illogan, Pool and Brea. Dog walkers can explore as much of this lovely trail as they wish, to experience a unique view of this historic area of Cornwall.

National Trust Walk: Lanhydrock, near Bodmin

Lanhydrock is a country house and estate in a stunning setting. While dogs are not permitted in the house or gardens there are still hundreds of acres to explore, with beautiful ancient woodlands, scenic parkland and tranquil riverside walks. Lanhydrock’s Stable Tea-room has an outdoor seating area where dogs are very welcome. Lanhydrock provide handy route guides for walks around the estate which can be collected from the gatehouse, reception or shop. This is a very popular venue for dog-walkers.

When you book a dog-friendly break in Cornwall, you will soon discover that you are spoilt for choice for places to take your four-legged friend!

Our friendly team will give you all the advice and information you need to make the most of your trip, helping you and your dog to enjoy a truly amazing winter break in beautiful Cornwall.  

Winning more awards than any other holiday park in the South West

Winning more awards than any other holiday park in the South West

By Bill Haslam, Managing Director, Landal Gwel an Mor

We all love to win a competition or receive an award. Whether it’s winning a race, a competition or a sports event, it is a powerful statement about your capability and shows other people what you can do.

Certificates and trophies are always valued and cherished, often displayed for years or even whole lifetimes. They are symbols of achievement that help define us as individuals, as communities - or in our case as a business.

We believe Gwel an Mor has received more awards that any other holiday resort in the South West.  Are we proud of this? Hell yes! 

We have scooped no less than 45 awards in the last ten years and won five national awards in that time. We have won the top holiday park award in ‘Best in Britain’ three times and been awarded the ‘Visit England’ accolade twice as well as countless “South West Tourism and Visit Cornwall” awards.

We thrive on entering awards. We like to measure ourselves against our competition and demonstrate that we are at the top of our game.

Some awards are judged according to guests’ feedback (for 12 years’ running we have won the ‘Best Customer Service’ award for Cornwall as voted by our guests). National awards are judged by our peers in the hospitality industry. They help inform their decision by making ‘under cover’ visits, so they can experience the resort exactly as any other customer would.

In 2018, we are thrilled to have won the hat trick, being named ‘Best Holiday Park’ in the Cornwall Tourism Awards, then ‘Best Holiday Park’ in the South West at the South West Tourism Awards, followed by the ultimate accolade, the ‘Best Holiday Village’ in the whole country at the Visit England awards. 

We have also been named a Finalist in the South West Wedding Awards 2019, after winning Simply Weddings ‘Wedding Venue of the Year’, so we are keeping our fingers crossed for the South West winner being announced in January 2019.

You can see some more detail about some of our many awards over the years here: 

Our awards reflect the hard work and talent of our 170 staff members. It is our amazing team that make the difference and gives Landal Gwel an Mor the winning edge. 

From the moment you first call to book your break and right throughout your stay, you will find our staff go the extra mile to make sure your experience is outstanding. 

You can be sure that your Hot Tub Lodge will be immaculate when you arrive, that the Hot Tub is managed expertly and that your safety will always be paramount.

You can be sure that all our activities are expertly run, and that the whole resort will be sparkling clean and well presented.  Wherever you go in Landal Gwel an Mor, these high standards are upheld.

Awards and certificates give our team members the “pat on the back” we yearn for to show us that we are doing a good job and doing it well. 

Review sites and social media take this a stage further. They provide a subjective instant view about the business. It is probably true to say that some reviews say more about the writer than the resort but customers are now pretty savvy and adept at interpreting reviews and come to their own overall judgement.

Trip Advisor is a highly regarded review site and one of our proudest achievements has been to hold a ‘Five Star’ rating on Trip Advisor for over ten years. This is unprecedented and Trip Advisor presented us with a certificate to mark this incredible achievement.

So, what does all this mean to you? Well, it means that when you are booking a break in Cornwall, you can have complete confidence in choosing Landal Gwel an Mor. 

Whether you are looking for a romantic break, a family holiday, a hot tub break or even a wedding venue, you can rest assured that you are in safe hands.

We look forward to welcoming you to the resort soon, so you can experience the magic that sets us apart.

6 of the best places to see Christmas Lights in Cornwall 2018

When you book your Christmas Break at Landal Gwel an Mor, you will discover a fantastic range of festive celebrations to enjoy in our local area.

Here are six of the best Christmas Lights in Cornwall 2018 that we recommend. Each town and village in Cornwall has its own unique take on Christmas and this is reflected in the dazzling choice of Christmas celebrations on offer!

Angarrack Christmas Lights

The people of Angarrack have been staging spectacular Christmas Lights for over 30 years, and for each season new lights are added. The main lights are all designed and made in the village and are therefore unique to Angarrack. Many are also cleverly animated and there is a special sequence of lights that displays the 12 Days of Christmas. Come to this friendly village and you will discover some of the most charming Christmas Lights in Cornwall!

Padstow Christmas Lights

Padstow’s Christmas Lights have been delighting visitors since the mid-1970s. The pretty fishing harbour and the streets of the town are alive with colour. The fishing boats are illuminated, creating beautiful reflections off the water. Padstow is a wonderful place to gather in the festive season. Not only are the lights spectacular to see, but many of them have a story to tell about the history of the town. During your visit, you can also enjoy some of the finest places to eat in Cornwall. Every year, Padstow also stages its own Christmas Food Festival.

Christmas Lights with a difference at the Eden Project

As part of its Winter Festival, the Eden Project will be staging a unique Shadows and Light experience on selected evenings during December. You will see the huge biomes dramatically lit with myriad colours. There will be interactive light sculptures that react to your touch. The Rainforest Biome will feature tropical zones of colour and light, while the Mediterranean Biome will showcase a Laser Forest and an Antarctic Garden. This is a Christmas festival of light that is like no other.

Truro Christmas Lights

The elegant Christmas Lights in the city of Truro make a perfect backdrop for some Christmas browsing and shopping. One of the focal points is the beautifully illuminated Christmas tree outside Truro Cathedral. There is a host of great activities happening throughout December, including special late-night shopping events and festive street markets. A visit to Truro will make a magical highlight to your Christmas season!

Mousehole Christmas Lights

People travel from all over Cornwall to see the Mousehole Christmas Lights – and it’s easy to see why! The lights have been an established highlight of the Christmas season for over 50 years and are arranged right around the beautiful harbour wall to create a spectacular panorama. You will see colourfully lit fishing boats, giant sea serpents and whales. In total, there are over 7,000 bulbs illuminating the town. During your visit, you can also browse the pretty local gift shops.  

New Year’s Eve Fireworks at St Ives

See the skies lit up over the gorgeous seaside town of St Ives. In addition to its lovely Christmas Lights, every New Year’s Eve St Ives hosts one of the most impressive celebrations in Cornwall. There is a vibrant street party throughout the evening, with thousands of revellers descending on the town – and many in fancy dress. At midnight, people gather on the seafront and on the beach for a huge fireworks display, with the glare of the rockets reflecting off the surface of the sea. Not to be missed!

When you come to Landal Gwel an Mor for your Christmas Break or New Year Break, we will be able to tell you more about the spectacular festive activities happening in Cornwall.

We can help put together your own personal itinerary – so that you make the very best of this wonderful season!
