Gwelmor is a multi-award-winning family and dog-friendly holiday cottage just five minutes walk from the beach at Widemouth Bay, north Cornwall.
Contemporary and spaciously laid out, the cottage sleeps six in three bedrooms, is set on a single level with a fully enclosed garden, making it a great retreat for the whole family.
Gwelmor was named the Dog Friendly Business of the Year in the South West Tourism Excellence Awards 2021/2022 and in the Cornwall Tourism Awards 2021/22, having won Bronze in the previous two years.
Great week spent at Gwelmor at the beginning of June, weather could have been kinder but it didn’t spoil our enjoyment. The bungalow is fab, very well equipped, they have thought of everything. Especially good for our 3 dogs who enjoyed the freedom of the enclosed garden. Location is perfect; proximity to the beach was great for dog walking and boogie boarding for the younger members of our party and Bude, with all its amenities, just a short drive away. Would definitely recommend.
Beautiful place to stay, the house has everything you need and is so close to the beach and the lovely local restaurants. The garden is a little sun trap and was a nice quite space to enjoy a BBQ! We stayed with our three Greyhounds and they were so welcomed and well catered for, which is a pretty tough find when you have three large dogs. Jayne was also so helpful when we had to postpone our original trip due to one our dogs having surgery at the last minute and her attentiveness to ensure we had everything we needed before our stay was so appreciated. We would definitely return for another stay and have already recommended it to friends of ours who love Cornwall as much as we do. Thanks again Jayne, Bill , Molly , Indy & Margo! X
We love coming to Bude and staying at Gwelmor is always a pleasure. We instantly feel at home, such a beautiful home in a great location. Very clean & tidy and everything you need to have a enjoyable holiday. All the added touches are greatly appreciated. The beds are super comfortable and we always manage to get great nights sleep. Can’t wait to return and highly recommend to anyone seeking a wonderful holiday .
We had a lovely week at Gwelmor. The house was beautifully decorated and furnished, super comfortable and well-equipped with everything needed for your stay. We loved the dog cupboard - we could have almost forgotten to pack anything at all for the dog and it would have been fine - and the secure garden meant we could relax properly. The location is fantastic - really peaceful and just a very short walk from the beach and coastal path. We loved the welcome gifts, and the dog definitely loved his too! Thank you for a lovely stay.
The South West Coast Path runs 630 miles from Somerset to Dorset. The breath-taking stretch along north Cornwall falls right on Gwelmor's doorstep and has some seriously arduous climbs, but the rewards are worth the effort. We're are on a mission to walk entire path and are blogging each leg along the way.
With its craggy rock-pools, colourful beach huts, open-air sea pool, surf schools, kayaking and outdoor pursuits, Summerleaze Beach has it all. The beach is dog friendly all year round but must be kept on a lead from May 21 to September 30 10am to 6pm.
The ethos behind this cosy restaurant is to 'bridge the gap between local suppliers and your plate'. And it doesn't disappoint. Menus change with the season and they encourage you to order things you've never heard of - and trust them.
A great place for the whole family. Dine out on locally produced food in a great location overlooking the lake. Meanwhile the kids are kept entertained with the interactive wildlife centre and playground. Dogs are welcome in the garden and the centre has its spa too for a spot of pampering.
*Sadly closed due to a fire but staff are currently working from The Beach House in Bude*. A more formal dining experience in a funky setting with panoramic views over Widemouth Bay. Delicious Italian food served at lunch and in the evening with plenty of outdoor seating for sunny days. Dogs allowed outside only.
