“Our third stay at Gwern- what else can we say?”

This was our third stay at Gwern, and once again it proved to be a great place to stay. The accommodation is comfortable from the word go, and, although we are yet to enjoy the balcony and deck area to its full potential due to the weather (we have so far stayed "out of season") the garden area is a great space. On this visit we noticed improvements have been made to the garden from a privacy and general appearance perspective. The location is great - under a 10 minute walk to the beach, it is a no through road so traffic is minimal and it is very difficult not to just switch off and relax. The bedrooms are very flexible and there are all sorts of permutations possible.The parking is a big plus in this location.

We had a couple of questions on arrival (which was late due to the distance we had to travel) that were answered immediately, and the cottage was spick and span. Have we booked for a return visit? Yes we have.

Tips~:~ the buses are frequent and a good way to get into Penzance if you don't want to drive or walk. We have also found the taxis to be very reliable and good value for late returns. The pasties from Philps are a must . The staff at the Godolphin Arms are really friendly and dogs are very welcome there. The walk to Penzance is level along the beach and takes about 45 to 60 minutes depending on how fast you walk.

“Magnificent”
Reviewed 25 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We are a large family ages range from 2 to 59. Gwern gave us everything and more that we could have wished for in a holiday home. Great accomadation, plenty of space, modern facilities, safe enclosed garden, no traffic to speak of, very easy walking distance to beach and St. Michael's Mount.
Brilliant.
