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.
Our 2nd visit and again didn't disappoint. Beautifully clean and probably the best equipped cottage we have ever stayed in. Lovely touches for the hounds, who enjoyed (like the humans) their stay immensely. We had wonderful weather in a beautiful location. We will be back sometime in the future and will recommend to all our friends and family. Thanks Jayne
We have had a great holiday with our humans! We've loved the walks on the beach and swimming in the sea. Thank you for the treats and all the things that you left for us to use. We have been really safe in the garden which has been reassuring for our owners.
What a great place Gwelmor is, lovely and clean and spacious. 5 minutes to the beach is ideal. Thanks again
We had a lovely time staying at Gwelmor – the house was fantastic, with everything we could possibly need. The weather could have been better, but we still managed to get out and about and enjoyed our break. Otis loved the bag of treats left for him, and we enjoyed our treats too.
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.
