Gift left for every child

Going on holiday with small children can sometimes feel like more hassle than it’s worth with all the extra packing that’s needed.

Child-friendly holidays in the UK are becoming increasingly popular – especially this year with international travel on hold - and the flexibility of a well-equipped self-catering cottage can be the perfect solution.

At Gwelmor, we work hard to ensure our cottage is family-friendly and well-equipped so that guests can make it home for the duration of their stay.

Here’s what’s on offer at Gwelmor for guests with children:

  • A cot and high-chair means that parents can travel much lighter without having to pack such bulky items in the car
  • All children get an age-related welcome gift on arrival with a personalised name tag
  • Gwelmor has a wide range of children’s DVDs to help entertain on those typically British wet summer days!
  • Our property is spacious, set on one level and has a fully enclosed garden with lockable gates so little ones can play outdoors safely
  • A selection of board games is provided for the whole family to enjoy as well as buckets, spades, a cricket bat and other beach equipment
  • We run a book recycling scheme where children, and their parents, can take home a book they haven’t finished reading in exchange for one they brought with them
  • Keeping little ones entertained is a full-time job, so we supply a box of baby friendly toys
  • Our kitchen has supplies of plastic picnic plates, bowls, cups and beakers
  • We have a microwave which is handy for warming up baby meals and a dishwasher to clean bottles
  • With three bedrooms it means Grandma and Grandpa can come too – the perfect babysitters!

We’re fully booked for this summer but you can get in early for 2022 so why not secure your dates today?
