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

We are a family of 6, 2 adults and 4 children and stayed in the ground floor Beachview appartment in August 2012. We had a fantastic time, the view from the appartment was spectacular. The appartment had everything we could need and was lovely and clean. Even though there was a family in the upstairs appartment, we didn't hear them.... More

We stayed in cliffhanger lodge 2 which is bright, very spacious, really nicely furnished with lovely personal touches, lots of games and dvd's for any rainy days and has the most amazing views. It's well worth paying the extra to have one of the seaview lodges. The park is very peaceful and just a short walk to the beach although... More

We are welcomed by the owner who took us to our cabin (Cliffhanger 2 - which has the BEST views out all all the 'Cliffhanger' lodges - although all were on the cliff edge) he showed us round, and told us about the heating - we had full control, which was nice as most accommodations have it set. The views... More
