The Details

  • Location

    Where is it?

    Gwel Teg is a modern, four bedroom property, on a quiet road just footsteps from the sheltered sands of Porth beach.

    When children draw a seaside scene, they draw Porth. Streams, rockpools and caves beg to be explored, whilst a sweep of beach provides ample terrain for sandcastle building and sand-fairy making. Families, adventurers and explorers of all ages will lose hour after happy hour here.

    A narrow wooden footbridge leads to Porth Island, a headland full of history. Watch in awe at mid tide, particularly on windy days, as the blow hole shoots rainbow sprays of water. Embrace the theatre of Porth Island any time of day or all year round, just wrap up warm and bring a camera to capture dramatic sunrises and storms alike.

    Back down on the beach, melted strawberry ice cream drips down sides of candy cones and sizzling tapas is served at Porth's beachside eateries. Once you've soaked up the Porth scene, try heading towards Newquay's bays, up the coast path to Whipsiderry and Watergate, or towards the rolling cliffs of Mawgan Porth and Bedruthan Steps.

Guest Reviews

"I love staying with Beach retreats. Each time I am never disappointed and from start to finish everything is very easy which is what you want when booking a holiday.
This particular house was lovely and had everything we needed for a family vacation. Bathrooms and bedrooms were nice sizes and very clean. Kitchen and living space was perfect and added bonus was the games room and hot tub. Great location as was just down the road from Porth beach."

"Our second stay with Beach Retreats, we wouldn't use anyone else now! Amazing properties both times!"
K Thompson, August 2023
"We had an amazing stay at Gwel Teg, the house is stunning, beautifully done out, very spacious and well equipped. The games room was a great feature, the children loved it. The house is situated on a quiet lane, only a short 2 minute walk to the beach, a perfect location. We couldn't fault our stay, the family loved it. We would definitely stay again and recommend others to stay.
