You can't help think WOW

As you enter through the front door at 'Gwelmor' you can't help think WOW, it's clean, fresh and beautifully presented throughout. It's so well equipped for humans and animals alike. Cosy bedrooms, comfy beds, vast living area, lovely safe enclosed garden and lots of little extras you might need for your stay. Just a short walk to the stunning beach...doggy heaven, interesting pebbles and great surf. Had a great hot chocolate at the beach cafe. I highly recommend 'Gwelmor' and would definitely like to return one day. Thank you for my prize, I've loved sharing it with my family.

Best place we have ever stayed at

1st time staying at Gwelmor, best place we have ever stayed at, great for our dogs, they relaxed straight away and so did we. We brought essentials but all was here, salt, pepper, oil, everything is here that you need. We will certainly come again. Unfortunately our dog was ill before we came, diabetes, a high blood pressure and Jayne was so kind and understanding and accommodated all our dogs as we normally leave 2 behind when we come away. We did have to leave a little early as Molly was poorly, but our stay here was wonderful, beds comfy, slept very well, nice quiet area. Thank you

My second visit to the enchanting Gwelmor

My second visit to the enchanting Gwelmor, it really is a home from home for us with facilities aplenty for myself and my Cockapoo Milly! Lovely quiet retreat with the beautiful wild coast of Widemouth Bay a short walk away. We will be back!

Back again for our 7th visit

Back again for our 7th visit and once again Gwelmor has been everything we hoped for and more - even storm Ciaran couldn't spoil our fun as the house is so cosy and quiet. Coastal path to Bude is always a favourite walk and Milky Way Adventure Park a big hit with the 6 year old. The house is so well equipped, including dog supplies, which we were very grateful for as we packed in a hurry and forgot Arlo's bowls. We all slept so soundly - a combination of lots of fresh air and the super comfy beds! We hope to return soon

This home is absolutely beautiful

We had such a lovely stay, this home is absolutely beautiful. Everything we needed and more! The doggy extras were very much appreciated! Mavi, Kojo and Bubu loved it here! Sandy beaches, walks and cosy nights in... They felt really welcome and settled right in. Perfect for a pooch friendly holiday!

Gwelmor is the best cottage we have ever stayed in

Friday the 13th - usually dubbed as unlucky, however it was extremely lucky for us as we discovered Gwelmor! We have had the most wonderful week regardless of some of the challenging weather. Gwelmor is the best cottage we have ever stayed in. It was so lovely knowing our dogs are as welcome as us, it has everything we could possibly need. The beach is so close and a great place to wear out our three border collies. They loved it as much as we have. Thanks Jayne, Bill, Indy and Margo for sharing you home.

Already booked again for next year

We've been coming to Gwelmor for 4 years now - another lovely week and we fell lucky with the weather. Cottage always really well equipped. Dogs love the beach and our toddler (19 months) loved it too, as well as watering all the plants outside! We would recommend parking at The Weir and then walking down the canal to Bude. Food at The Bank at Bude is amazing, as was the food at Coombe Barton Inn in Cracking Haven. The Milky Way is excellent value for a day out with toddlers (adults loved it too!) Already booked again for next year

We look forward to returning again next Spring...

We have had another lovely stay at Gwelmor despite the weather being so hot for our dog! The beach has been a lifeline and there is plenty of shade in the garden. We thoroughly recommend Sandymouth when the tide is going out/coming in for a cooling swim and the cafe is great too. We look forward to returning again next Spring in the cooler weather.

A haven for all who choose to stay

With or without a dog, this place is fitted for all eventualities. We came with a dog by the way 'Cluedo' and he loved all the space this property gives you. We are thankful for all of the help with the beach ware in the garage. Next time we can travel so much lighter :) Cluedo is still unsure of the sea but did have a paddle. Thank you once again for a wonderful place to stay and rest from the slog of work. This is a haven for all who choose to stay.

Gorgeous setting with the beach only a short stroll away perfect for a doggie paddle in the sea. House is perfect and has a very homely and warm feeling. Dog absolutely loved her time on the beach. Thank you Jayne for your welcome and lovely house - we've had a great break away. Widemouth and Bude are great places to stay!

It's so hard to find somewhere truly 'dog friendly' but Jayne and Bill really have considered everything

Our first stay at Gwelmor and it has been a wonderfully relaxing break. We're already looking at diaries to see when we can return!! This really is a 'home from home' and our 3 dogs loved the garden (peace of mind being so secure when have escapees!) It's so hard to find somewhere truly 'dog friendly' but Jayne and Bill really have considered everything. Perfect for sandy walks on the beach at the end of the road and as a base for travelling around nearby Cornwall. Boscastle well worth a visit. Looking forward to returning again very soon. Thank you!

It truly is dog friendly and not just dog tolerated

The house is stunning everything you would want is provided. The few questions we had Jayne replied promptly. It truly is dog friendly and not just dog tolerated. The treats left for all of us, dogs included, were a lovely touch. The house is in a perfect position for day trips out and the beach. Already booked for next year.

The bungalow is stunning and exceedingly well equipped

We had a wonderful stay at Gwelmor A perfect location for the beach in a quiet setting. The garden is so safe for the dogs and it’s great to sit out in the patio area. Everything you could possibly need was there, for humans and dogs alike! The bungalow is stunning and exceedingly well equipped.

We will definitely be back

Marley and his humans had a lovely stay, despite the showers. Although having been to Widemouth for several years we had not stayed here before. We will definitely be back, hopefully later this year. As always we have enjoyed our lunch at Widemouth Manor who are extremely dog friendly. Thank you.

Everything you could ask for and more

Wonderful short break after winning the holiday prize with 'Dog Friendly' magazine. Brought 2 'old' friends with us and, of course, our GSD Savannah. Lovely bungalow, everything you could ask for and more, so comfy & restful and a smashing garden. Sorry we have to go home! Thank you Gwelmor and Dog Friendly Magazine.

The house was perfect and in a perfect position

Our first time at Gwelmor and we will be back. We wanted for nothing! The house was perfect and in a perfect position. A short walk to the beach every morning, and evening sometimes, and the coastal path glorious. The food at The Beach House was great and they happily welcomed two wet, sandy collies into their midst. Next time Crackington Haven! The perfect place for a perfect birthday. Thank you.

We've been coming to Gwelmor once or twice a year for the past six years

We have been coming to Gwelmor once or twice a year for the past six years - you could say that we like it! Jayne and Bill are amazing hosts, nothing is too much trouble for their guests. The accommodation is always sparkling clean and well equipped. Just the two of us have stayed here with our three fur babies over the years and they have had wonderful holidays running on the sand and chasing in the water. Now we visit with fewer dogs but more children and grandchildren. Gwelmor is a great place to stay for either dogs or humans! Widemouth Bay is a fantastic location in itself but also a great base for exploring the wider location. We never tire of visiting our old favourite spots and are still making new discoveries along this stunning coastline. We’re already booked in again for next year!

Everything was perfect

Had a wonderful stay at this beautiful property, it always felt like we were returning to a home not a holiday property each day. We loved the Beach House for a drink and meal, laid back and very dog friendly with lovely food. We booked very last minute & everything was perfect, will definitely be returning.

Probably the best equipped cottage we have ever stayed in

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

Would definitely recommend

Great week spent at Gwelmor at the beginning of June, weather could have been kinder but it didn’t spoil our enjoyment. The bungalow is fab, very well equipped, they have thought of everything. Especially good for our 3 dogs who enjoyed the freedom of the enclosed garden. Location is perfect; proximity to the beach was great for dog walking and boogie boarding for the younger members of our party and Bude, with all its amenities, just a short drive away. Would definitely recommend.

We would definitely return for another stay

Beautiful place to stay, the house has everything you need and is so close to the beach and the lovely local restaurants. The garden is a little sun trap and was a nice quite space to enjoy a BBQ! We stayed with our three Greyhounds and they were so welcomed and well catered for, which is a pretty tough find when you have three large dogs. Jayne was also so helpful when we had to postpone our original trip due to one our dogs having surgery at the last minute and her attentiveness to ensure we had everything we needed before our stay was so appreciated. We would definitely return for another stay and have already recommended it to friends of ours who love Cornwall as much as we do. Thanks again Jayne, Bill , Molly , Indy & Margo! X

Fabulous week

We had a lovely week at Gwelmor. The house was beautifully decorated and furnished, super comfortable and well-equipped with everything needed for your stay. We loved the dog cupboard - we could have almost forgotten to pack anything at all for the dog and it would have been fine - and the secure garden meant we could relax properly. The location is fantastic - really peaceful and just a very short walk from the beach and coastal path. We loved the welcome gifts, and the dog definitely loved his too! Thank you for a lovely stay.

We had a fabulous week at Gwelmor. The situation is very good, being within a couple of minutes walk from the beach at Widemouth on quiet access roads. The house is spacious with everything you need for both people and dogs. The garden is private and secure.

5 star dog friendly place

Thank you Molly, Indy and Margo for my lovely welcome to your wonderful holiday home. I loved my treats you left me and then I discovered the dog friendly cupboard. Your 'hoomans' have thought of everything for us doggo's. My favourite place was sitting outside in the lovely large fully enclosed garden. I would sit on the patio and play with the ball. I had a great time visiting all the lovely beaches nearby. On behalf of my 'hoomans' and I, thank you for a great stay at Gwelmor and I will certainly be returning next year. Love Merlin (GSD)

Perfect! Wow, where to start, if you've got dogs and you want to take them on holiday in Cornwall this is the place! The bungalow is extremely spacious with plentiful amenities - tumble dryer, washing machine, fully fitted out kitchen, loads of cups, plates and glassess, treats for the dogs, dog towels! the list is endless. The owner even got us a slow cooker in preparation for our visit! Very well presented rooms, the website and photos really don't do it justice.

Ideal holiday home for a family getaway

Ideal holiday home for a family getaway with an almost 3-year-old. The gifts on arrival, with a special gift for the kid, were an especially nice touch and appreciated. The location was ideal, 5 minutes' walk from the beach, and there are a couple of nice restaurants nearby (we appreciated the recommendations in the "Guests" section of the website). The house itself had everything required for a holiday -- we particularly enjoyed the DVD selection.
