On the far side of Gerrans Bay from Porth and St Anthony, the old farming hamlet of Gwendra is tucked into the low cliffs immediately above the long sandy beaches of Carne and Pendower. Gwendra consists of Granary and four other cottages Mowhay, Dairy Cottage Gwendra, Hayloft and Gwendra Wartha.
The cottages have been converted from traditional stone and slate farm buildings to form stylish and comfortable accommodation. Granary is surrounded by lawns and perfect for games and lounging alike.
If it is an old fashioned beach holiday you are after then Gwendra is the place. The cottage is just a short walk away from the gently sloping sandy beach perfect for paddling and swimming. For a change why not explore the rock pools at Porthcurnick beach at low tide and enjoy a coffee at the beach café.
The pretty village of Veryan with its thatched round houses, pub and shop is within easy reach as is the rest of the Roseland peninsula. Nearby the unspoilt fishing village of Portloe is a great place to enjoy a cream tea. This picturesque spot has made it a popular film location over the years.
