Gwel an Mor proved to be a fantastic choice of holiday resort during a week of cold and wet weather in Cornwall in mid July. The lodges come fully equipped with absolutely everything you could possibly need including washing machine, Wi-Fi and balcony overlooking the coast. Sumptuously furnished the lodges were warm and dry during the storms we encountered with little touches like free DVD's to watch and board games to play.
The resort, although relatively small, had a super fitness suite, sauna, steam room and swimming pool. The pool was great for relaxing in whilst it chucked it down. The restaurant served up excellent food and had a good value home delivery pizza service.
I can't fault the site and accommodation at all except for the location..... The sea views were there but it was not a particularly picturesque location and it was a fair old hike to the beach. Fine for us but if you had very small kids you would drive.
