Looking for a luxury alternative to Centre Parcs?
Friday 16th March, 2012
So many of our guests love Center Parcs (heck we even love to visit with our own kids too) but the trouble many people find is that while they love a Center Parcs holiday, there just isn’t one in Cornwall! We think you might find Gwel An Mor a great alternative to a Center Parcs holiday, so read on and find out why…
You love the Center Parcs wooden lodges?
You’ll feel right at home in our 5* luxury wooden lodges - choose from our Scandinavian style wooden lodges or our sleek Residence lodges, all come with stunning sea views. Whether you need a baby & child friendly lodge, a dog friendly lodge or an M3 assisted living lodge designed for people with disabilities or limited mobility – we have the perfect lodge for you.
From private hot tubs to log burners, daily maid service, baby essentials kits or Champagne and canapes on arrival, we can tailor your break to suit you.
You love to visit Cornwall?
There is no getting away from it – there just isn’t a Center Parcs in Cornwall! If you love Cornwall you’ll love exploring from Gwel An Mor – we’re on the north coast above the beautiful Cornish fishing harbour of Portreath. With sea views from every lodge you’ll be watching the sun set into the sea, glass of wine in hand and feeling relaxed before you know it.
Walk down through our woodland valley to the soft sands of Portreath Beach, head out to explore towns like arty St Ives, discover tales of giants on St Michael’s Mount, stretch out on stunning beaches like the tropical looking Porthcurno or just sit back and relax in your private hot tub.
You love all the activities at Center Parcs?
Of course we know Center Parcs have a huge amount of activities and much bigger resorts, however you might be surprised to see just how much fun we have going on at Gwel An Mor! Our guests tell us that we’ve found a magical balance between a peaceful resort and plenty to do on site:
· Feadon Farm wildlife centre – meet the farm animals, fly birds of prey, hand feed foxes, go on a badger watch and lots more!
· Indoor climbing walls
· 2,000 square feet of indoor soft play
· Coarse fishing lake
· The Famous Nine par 3 golf course
· EBO Adventures – coasteering, surfing, kite surfing, kayaking, SUP, abseiling and more
· Heated sea view indoor pool
· Steam room
Plus take short stroll through our woodland valley and you’ll find yourself on the beach with lots more fun at your fingertips – surfing, bodyboarding, coast path hiking, sea fishing, rockpooling and sand castle making!
There is plenty going on locally, from horse riding to exploring tin mines, just let our friendly Reception team know what you are interested in and they can arrange the rest for you.
Want to bring your four-legged friend?
No problem, just book one of our dog friendly lodges. We’ve got miles of trails just steps from your lodge door and Cornwall’s finest dog friendly beaches just minutes from the resort, we even provide a doggy welcome pack and recommended walks leaflet to make happy tails wag!
We know that they are part of your family, so we even make them welcome in the conservatory of The Terrace restaurant so they don’t feel left out of the holiday fun.
You find Center Parcs resorts too big and busy?
Some people find the Center Parcs resorts too big and impersonal – in which case Gwel An Mor will suit you perfectly. We are an independently owned, smaller resort with a super friendly team. While being smaller does mean we haven’t got quite as many activities as they might, we do have lots going on plus a quiet, relaxed atmosphere and a level of personal service that our repeat guests feel just can’t be beaten.
You enjoy cycling around Center Parcs?
Bring your own bikes to Gwel An Mor or hire them from our friends at The Hub from just £12 per day and they’ll be delivered to your lodge for free. The Mineral Tramway cycle path runs right through the resort and with the Tehidy Woods cycle paths and the Coast To Coast cycle path just minutes away you’ll have plenty of places to explore in the saddle.
You trust Center Parcs because it’s a big brand?
You can rest assured that Gwel An Mor are here to ensure your holiday is extra special from the moment you arrive. We’ve been providing amazing holidays to guests for over 10 years and we pride ourselves on the fact that so many of our guests choose to return year after year. We love being part of their family’s happy memories and we look forward to becoming part of yours too.
