Our second summer holiday at Gwel an Mor. Lovely quiet site and a good base to explore Cornwall. Lodge was cosy and clean.
The pool is small but it was a good place to teach my small children to swim as it's quite deep and they couldn't reach the bottom. If you want to visit the restaurant you might want to book as it was dead busy when we arrived at 7pm on a Weds evening and they had to squeeze us in, the food was good though so it was worth it.
We enjoyed rock pooling with Gary down on Portreath Beach - hermit crabs, fish and a starfish were among our finds! The Atlantic Cafe on the beach is also a good place to eat.
Portreath village is very small and quiet but it has a bakery and corner shop, there is a large Tescos a few miles away if you want to do a big shop.
