Fantastic stay in a beautiful 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom Oyster Bay Lodge that was of a very high standard and had everything you needed for a self-catering holiday in a stunning location overlooking the bay. The kitchen was fully kitted out and the whole place was very comfortable to stay in with great central heating when you needed it too.... More

Gorgeous location perched on the cliffs overlooking the ocean.The accommodations are called caravans but are like mobile homes, ie double wides. They are fully furnished and clean and neat. Close to a lovely pub "the Ship" located on the beach with sailboat rentals, and paddleboards. Lovely Sandy beach with swimming. Wonderful to watch the dolphins and today saw a local... More

We had the most wonderful relaxing stay. The lodge is just perfect - the location, the facilities and the high standard to which it is maintained. Provisions are available from Londis in Aberporth (which we used on day 1 together with the Indian which was fab) or Tesco in Cardigan. The pub is nice....homemade pork scratching so with your beer... More

Just back. Had a great time. It is so quiet and restful. The owner is more than helpfull. There is a mixture of caravans and lodges. The park is spotlessly clean. The lawns and grounds are well maintained.

Stayed here last October, 2 adults and 2 children. The lodge has simply got the 'WOW' factor. It has a modern stylish interior with all the mod cons you could ask for. there is also SKY TV, a great sound system as well as books and games. The bifold doors leading onto the Varanada really make the most of the... More

Just back from a smashing week at Gwalia Falls. Great weather, great views, great chalet. Everything is uphill here apart from the walk down to the beach, but then you have to climb back up again. Coastal footpath stunning but don't underestimate how tough it can be in some sections. You need a basic level of fitness, of which mine... More

Haven't had a UK holiday for a few years but certainly glad we opted for Gwalia Falls. Nice place to stay, the lodge was spotless and in good condition, even had a utility room which was handy for wet clothes. Outside the decking could do with a of care and re-staining but given the weather it'd always going to suffer.... More

We stayed in one of the Cliff Lodges over the summer holidays with 2 young children. Location is stunning and the sunset views are fantastic. You are paying a premium for the view but as a treat its just about worth it ! The lodge itself is good. 2 rooms one ensuite. Good powerful shower (always important). Fire for those... More

I have been to Gwalia a few times now, each time staying in one of their lodges. The lodges themselves are great, always very clean and comfortable with almost everything you could need. Including free WiFi which is always good during the inevitable rain, it is Wales after all. The site itself is starting to look a bit tired around... More
