Gwelmor is a luxurious, family and dog-friendly self catering holiday home just five minutes walk from the beach at Widemouth Bay, near Bude in North Cornwall. With three bedrooms, a fully enclosed garden and set all on one level, it's a great retreat for the whole family.
Gwelmor has won Bronze for the second year running in the Dog Friendly Business of the Year category in the Cornwall Tourism Awards 2020/21.
Our fourth visit...Beautifully presented house in a great location - enclosed garden completely safe for dogs and children, super comfy beds, spotlessly clean, well equipped kitchen. A short walk to sandy, dog friendly beach with rock pools for exploring and popular for surfing. A couple of pubs/restaurants in walking distance and Bude 10 minutes away by car or an hour's walk on the beautiful SW coastal path. A great base for exploring North Devon and Cornwall.
We have had a thoroughly enjoyable stay, fantastic accommodation, catering for all our needs including our furry babies. Shadlow, Opal & Tilly loved their treats, and Louie says thank you for his little bear. We have had a first class stay and will recommend it to all our friends. Thank youo so much from all of us.
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.
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.
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.
