Where to start? What an amazing place to explore Cornwall from! We stayed for a short break at one of the new residences . Jaw dropping attention to detail and the quality of the build is outstanding. The facilities within the dwelling are equal to what one may expect to find in a five star hotel. Every conceivable item is... More

We have just returned home to Dublin, from a week in Gwel an Mor, having stayed in one of the three bed Residence lodges, with our two kids (seven and four years old), and my parents. All in all, we had a great time. The manager, Nico and his staff were fantastic; everyone we met was friendly and helpful, from... More

Sinead, Thanks for such a great write up, although I am a little disappointed having read it that we did not get 5 stars, but glad you are intending to return to give us a chance to capture a fifth one! We do have plans for further activities over the next few years, we are building a golf course presently,... More

Dear Calamity, Thanks for a lovely response, and such great comments about everything, especially our staff, I know I am biased but I really think this is the big difference at Gwel an Mor, there are many lovely places in Cornwall but our staff really are the best.

We stayed here for a week in a Lowena Lodge. The lodge was very well equipped and if anything is wrong they fix it immediately. We took our dogs and the walking nearby is excellent.

We really appreciate your words, and from someone who is a "senior reviewer" they count even more highly. The Lowena lodge that you stayed in are our smallest lodges, but its great to heat that you still rated them so well, they are lovely and very spacious. Your comments on the staff will also mean a lot to them, I... More
