Named the South West's Best Dog Friendly Business 2021/2022, Gwelmor's dog-friendly nature is regularly acknowledged by guests, many of whom have become repeat visitors returning several times a year.

Launched in April 2017, Gwelmor has welcomed hundreds of VIPs (Very Important Pooches) through the doors of its spacious, contemporary three bedroom property. It is set on one level and just four minutes walk from the beach at Widemouth Bay in north Cornwall.

Sliding patio doors lead out to a fully enclosed garden and our utility room is kitted out with all the essentials and comforts that a dog, and his owner, could wish, making it feel just like home.

Multi-award-winning Gwelmor is a spacious and contemporary three-bedroom property just four minutes walk from the beach in Widemouth Bay north Cornwall.

Positioned at the top of a quiet cul-de-sac and set on a single level, Gwelmor is perfect for three generations wanting to holiday under one roof, or dog-loving couples who love to walk as there is easy access to the South West Coast Path.

Gwelmor was named the South West's Dog Friendly Business of the Year 2021-2022 and also won Gold at the Cornwall Tourism Awards the same year, having won Bronze the previous two years running.

Launched in 2017, Gwelmor's owners were keen to provide a holiday home that equally welcomed humans and dogs, while not compromising on luxurious furniture, comfort and modern decor.

Gwelmor has two king size bedrooms (one en-suite), a twin room and a large family bathroom. The spacious, open plan kitchen/lounge/diner is a great place for the family socialise together and has sliding patio doors which lead out to a fully enclosed wrap-around garden.

For our younger guests, we provide a travel cot, high chair, child-friendly cutlery, plates, bowls and beakers, as well as a range of soft toys, games and books.

At Gwelmor we strive to use local suppliers and providers where possible. Our super comfy mattresses are natural and organic by Devon firm NaturalMat and our sustainable wooden furniture was made bespoken by Chunky Monkey, also in Devon. The artwork on our walls is by regional artists or by the owner herself.

The property is perfect for a relaxing retreat yet is ideally located for enjoying one of the finest, sandy, surfing beaches in North Cornwall. There are beach shops, water sport activities and restaurants all within easy reach of the property, and the ever popular seaside town of Bude is just a short drive away. 
Within close proximity to the A30, Gwelmor is a great base to explore the whole of North Devon and Cornwall and nearby you can visit Tintagel, with its legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, Hartland and Clovelly. 
The kitchen of this well-equipped bungalow includes an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. There is also a useful utility room with washing machine and additional WC located just off the kitchen area. If you need to dry any clothes, there is a tumble dryer located in the garage. Venturing the other way you will find three beautifully presented bedrooms; a king-size with Smart TV, DVD player and en-suite shower room and WC, a further king-size with TV/DVD and a twin. There is also a family bathroom ideally located close to the bedrooms and this offers a shower over bath and WC.
The lovely enclosed garden spans two sides of the house and has a patio area, lawn, garden furniture, BBQ and a useful area for drying wetsuits and storing outdoor boots and shoes. There is also private off-road parking for up to a maximum of 3 cars directly outside the property.

Extremely comfortable.The dogs have loved it as much as we have.

Maxine Parker, September 2021

Beautiful cottage, spotlessly clean and very well equipped and only a 5 mins walk to the beach. Jayne and Bill have thought of everything, when it comes to our four legged friends. A lovely letter addressed to the dogs, treats, dogs beds, bowls. leads and covers for the sofa. We don’t think we have stayed anywhere that cares more for its guests and much loved pooches. Would highly recommend

Kath Ky, August 2021

Such a Wonderful home from home which made us, the kids and dogs feel so welcome. Nothing was too much trouble and everything is so high spec. Love the enclosed garden too and the beach is so close. We go back every year!
