Gwel an Mor which is Cornish for 'View of the Sea' is a holiday resort of lodges which sit high on the hills above the Atlantic in Portreath in Cornwall. True to its name the resort and all accommodation in it benefit from beautiful coastal views. The resort is situated less than a mile out of the fishing village of Portreath. It has a distant history as a working harbour and has one of the of the finest pale gold sandy beaches in Cornwall.

Three of the five accessible lodges at the resort are their ‘Assisted Living’ lodges, which have all been specifically designed to be wheelchair accessible. The main living area is on the ground floor comprising a lounge/dining area and a fully equipped kitchen. They each have three bedrooms, a twin with electric bed and ensuite wetroom which is also on the ground floor and a further twin, separate bathroom and king-size bedroom with ensuite located upstairs on the first floor.
 
Our researchers stayed in Cara and found the accessibility of both the site and the ground floor of the lodge excellent.

The resorts Clubhouse has an accessible spa, the swimming pool has a hoist and their licenced Terrace Restaurant which offers authentic Mediterranean cuisine can provide for special dietary needs with prior notice.

Feadon Farm, a wildlife centre is situated right next door which is partially accessible, for further access details at the farm please refer to the owners own website.
