We had booked VIP lodges, and they were rather wonderful, with sea views and hot tubs. The highlight of the week: the walks with Gary Zammit- our kids talk about them still, months... More

This large wooden lodge was perfectly suited to accommodate 3 generations. We had a Tregea VOP Lodge, and 'Porth' was everything we needed. Views, cleanliness, 3 bedrooms, ensuite for us, decking, hot tub. Unloading was easy, food delivery from a supermarket arrived soon after we did and we settled in for a week, in the Cornish sunshine. Highlights had to... More

I have just had my wedding in the tepee at Gwel-An-Mor. I have to say it was absolutely fantastic. Great venue, value for money and the food cooked by Joe was out of this world, a real talking point of the day from my guests. Liz was the lady that organised the event and was an absolute pleasure to deal... More

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.
