Luxury Accommodation

There’s a fantastic range of luxury self catering accommodation available including two story Scandinavian Lodges, cosy and exclusive Lakeside Lodges or experience eco-luxury at one of the Residence Eco Lodges offering balconies to make the most of the amazing sea views, bubbly hot tubs and wood burners all in an ultra-stylish contemporary environment.

Gwel an Mor offers assisted living accommodation for those with limited mobility and is the ideal place to stay in Cornwall for a luxury family holiday.

The stunning lodges are contemporary furnished and equipped to a high standard. Half of the lodges are ‘upside down’ style so the lounge is upstairs opening onto balconies, making the most of the incredible views across the park. The other lodges are truly modern and contemporary single storey eco lodges, all of which benefit from their own decking and hot tub. The lodges all enjoy their own sun deck with stylish furniture.

Each of the 5 star luxury lodges look out across the dramatic Atlantic Ocean. From stormy winter days to calm summer evenings with soft breezes playing in the trees, the view is always changing but constantly captivating.



Pulling back the curtains to sea views. Slipping into the warm bubbles of your private hot tub. Breathing in the fresh salty sea air. It’s the small details that add up to the perfect holiday in Cornwall. From discovering a complimentary chilled bottle of wine in your lodge fridge when you arrive to plump pillows piled high on sumptuous beds. After a day of adventures visit the Wellbeing Spa with therapies ranging from massages to hot stone treatments letting you fully relax and unwind.



Experiencing Cornwall can be tailored to your own pace; stroll along the local beach at Portreath, or grab a surf board and hit the waves with the surf school, wander the coastal areas of Falmouth, St Ives or the vibrant city of Truro (all within 20 minutes drive).
