“Gwel an mor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

What a beautiful place to stay. Truly a home away from home with the added be edits of a jacuzzi! The lodge was immaculate on arrival with wine in the fridge and hot beverages on the side. Wonderful size and facilities. Rooms are a good size with added benefit of master en suite.

Restaurant food is amazing a tip have either a starter or dessert as very generous portion sizes! Had a lovely massage in the spa and a dip in the nice warm pool.

Feadon farm is definitely worth a visit and our 18 month year old loved it.

A holiday for all times of year highly recommend

Cosy and warm beautiful lodge with log burner and heating in every area and hot tub just outside bedroom making our winter break perfect. Excellent service at the Wellbeing Spa and the pool, jacuzzi, sauna and steam room were all very good. We even enjoyed our session in the gym. We ordered take away food from the restaurant which was delivered promptly and the portions were huge. Lots of walks from the site and it was a joy to see the animals at the farm.
Would love to bring all my grandchildren here.

Room Tip: 3-bed Lodge No 1 had great views and we saw a beautiful sunset

Very friendly staff, good quality food, fantastic for a relaxing break. Looking at going back at christmas time as the setting is perfect. Myself and my wife had our honey moon here and it was a very friendly place to be. We went at end of november and was very cheap(just depends on what sort of weather you like).
Overall excellent!

My colleague and I went for a business/pleasure weekend and it was perfect, we got a good deal through travel zoo, which made it great value for money, we hope to return again next year for a pre-new year business planning weekend and a treat to ourselves

Room Tip: Book the VIP, just to experience the hot tub under the stars

We've been to Gwel an Mor 3 times and always look forward to going back. The lodges are comfortable, cosy and clean. All the staff are friendly, cheerful and helpful. Portreath and surrounding areas are just wonderful for beach lovers of all ages.Gary from the farm leads brilliant wildlife experiences.The pool is ace for rainy days. A visit to nearby Trevaskis Farm allows for a well stocked kitchen. Happy, happy days.

Wow, what an idyllic place to have my hen weekend and faultless customer service from Kate and all the staff. As we are all in our 30's we didnt want a typical hen wknd but still wanted to feel a bit spoilt and Gwel and Mor certainly ticked all the boxes. We had two lodges for the whole weekend and the lodges are fully equipped, modern, sparkling clean and big enough to fit us all in for drinkies on the friday night. We got fully pampered by Eva and her team on the Saturday day and then ate in the amazing restaurant on Saturday. The site itself is spotlessly clean and tidy, all the staff speak to you, even if you pass the cleaners en-route to the cabins. The Sunday we walked down the coastal path into the nearby village of Portreath and had brekkie in Tideline Cafe, a perfect end to our perfect weekend. All of the girls loved it there and now we are all trying to plan celebrating our 40th's there.

I went to use the spa facilities only at Gwel An Mor. It is a nice remote spot and the changing rooms were a bit dated but clean. The facilities are modern. The pool is very nice and the adjacent jacuzzi was great. There is also a steam room which was exceptional- quite large and a small sauna. I will certainly visit again. It cost £8 to use it for 2 hours. The time limit is a shame but it ensures that the facilities do not get too busy.
