What our guests say about Gwelmor
    

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

We have had a great holiday with our humans! We've loved the walks on the beach and swimming in the sea. Thank you for the treats and all the things that you left for us to use. We have been really safe in the garden which has been reassuring for our owners.

The house was fantastic

We had a lovely time staying at Gwelmor – the house was fantastic, with everything we could possibly need. The weather could have been better, but we still managed to get out and about and enjoyed our break. Otis loved the bag of treats left for him, and we enjoyed our treats too.

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.

Highly recommend it

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. The owners are very helpful and contacted us in advance to ensure we had all the information we needed. We will definitely come back and would highly recommend it to others.

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)

If you've got dogs and you want to take them on holiday in Cornwall this is the place!

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. Widemouth Bay is a quiet, unspoilt beach, perfect for dogs. We will definitely be back! Thank you.

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.

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 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.

Looking forward to visits 6 and 7 that are already booked for next year!

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!

Our fifth visit in three years

We recently spent a wonderful week in Gwelmor - our fifth visit in three years. Being all on one level and its lovely enclosed garden, it's absolutely perfect for young families. Our two and five year olds feel completely at home here, as do we. Despite the patchy weather, we found plenty to do in the immediate area and within a short drive. The kids loved the nearby theme parks too, but the highlight is undoubtedly the local beaches, brilliant for paddling and rock pooling. We can't recommend it highly enough and have already booked in again (twice) for next year.

The perfect escape after lockdown

We had a wonderful time. We took the home on recommendation and it was the perfect escape after lockdown. Excellent location for the lovely Widemouth beach and visits to Bude and the beautiful North Cornish coast (Tintagel, Boscastle, Rock, Holywell Bay). We couldn't fault the accommodation which was very spacious and well equipped and the owner was very welcoming. We highly recommend Gwelmor and hope to return.

The cottage was spotlessly clean

We absolutely loved Gwelmor. Jayne has thought of everything to make this the perfect setting for a family holiday with the dogs. The cottage was spotlessly clean, spacious and beautifully furnished. The eco friendly cleaning products and the fact that everything was locally sourced, from the paintings and furniture to the shower gel and shampoo was a really nice touch. The location is superb too. The dogs loved their treats. Thank you for a lovely holiday.
