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 Pendower and Carne. Gwendra consists of Mowhay and four other cottages,Dairy Cottage Gwendra, Granary, Gwendra Wartha and Hayloft
The cottages have been converted from traditional stone and slate farm buildings to form stylish and comfortable accommodation. Mowhay is surrounded by lawns and perfect for games and lounging alike. The outside furniture is perfectly situated for taking in the spectacular sea views whilst dining al fresco.
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.
