A foxy getaway in Cornwall

Home to the only place in the UK where you can hand feed foxes, Landal Gwel an Mor is a relaxing retreat with a difference

The resort in Portreath on the north coast of Cornwall offers stunning luxury self-catering lodges with beautiful sea views and activities to suit every need from spa treatments and golf to nature walks and wild experiences.

The accommodation ranges from Scandinavian style lodges to the more contemporary lakeside studio lodges and state-of-the-art Residence eco-lodges. We stayed at the Residence where you can curl up in front of the wood burner or relax in the hot tub. Stylishly decorated, this spacious modern home from home comes fully equipped with everything you might need on your self-catering holiday and personal touches such as chocolates on the pillows and a welcome pack with teas and coffees and a bottle of wine.

If you don’t want to cook, the Terrace Restaurant serves a range of delicious meals from pizza and burgers to fresh fish of the day and you can even order food direct to your lodge.

There’s a whole host of activities to keep you busy other than visiting the beach (which is a short walk from the resort). Unwind with a relaxing treatment at the Wellbeing Spa or enjoy the indoor pool, whirlpool, sauna and steam room. For active guests the largest all-weather 9-hole golf course in the UK is based here, you can play tennis or enjoy a number of nature trails to explore the area’s tin-mining heritage.

But for something really special visit the resort’s Feadon Farm. Here you can meet animal residents including reindeer, snakes and ferrets, go rockpooling, spot badgers on a nighttime walk or learn all about falconry. But, the star of the show has to be hand feeding the rescued foxes. This unique experience lets you get up close to these beautiful mammals for a feed, a stroke and even a kiss of the nose!

Landal Gwel an Mor is the perfect getaway for those looking for a relaxing seaside holiday with a little extra luxury and excitement.
