Gwelmor is a luxurious family and dog friendly holiday home just five minutes walk from Widemouth Bay, near Bude in North Cornwall. With three bedrooms, a fully enclosed garden and all on one level, it's a great retreat for the whole family.
Gwelmor won Bronze in the Cornwall Tourism Awards 2019/20 for Dog Friendly Business of the Year and was also Commended in the Self Catering Accommodation category.
What can we say that hasn't already been said. A wonderful property that leaves nothing wanting. Even the weather was good. We much appreciate the extra cleaning and stresses of this strange time.
We had an absolutely amazing stay at Gwelmor. Perfect location for coastal walks, the beach, dog walks and to a local pub. You really don't need to use the car if you don't want to. The house is spotlessly clean, so quiet and so well laid out. Its also super dog friendly. We have already booked again for next year and can't wait to go back. Jayne is also so lovely and friendly if you need anything. Would 100% recommend Gwelmor.
Gwelmor is amazing. Home from home, every attention to detail has been carefully thought of. So clean and well equipped, its just such a joy to be there.
Sadly we have reached the end of our 5th stay at Gwelmor, but we are looking forward to visits 6 and 7 that are already booked for next year! We have had a wonderful week visiting our favourite places and discovering new. It’s great to have complete confidence that we are going to spend our stay in clean, well equipped and comfortable accommodation surrounded by fantastic coastline and beautiful countryside all right on our doorstep. My shoulders dropped and I let out a huge sigh as we dropped down the now familiar slope into Widemouth Bay secure in the knowledge that we would have a great holiday whatever the world throws at us!
Stretching 630-miles, The South West Coast Path runs from Minehead in Somerset to Poole in Dorset. Gwelmor's owners are on a mission to walk entire path and are blogging each leg along the way. The breath-taking stretch along north Cornwall, on Gwelmor's doorstep, has some seriously arduous climbs but the rewards are worth the effort. Click below for the legs so far.
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.
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.
