Family fun at Gwelmor

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

Child-friendly holidays in the UK are becoming increasingly popular 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, comfy and well-equipped so that you can make it 'home' for the duration of your stay.
