Retreats by the beach

Get the luxury holiday lifestyle of your dreams that also earns you money.

Imagine owning your very own five-star luxury holiday retreat on Cornwall’s magnificent north-west coast. Now imagine your holiday retreat generating a potential income of up to £21,000. Sound too good to be true? Well, it’s not with Gwel an Mor’s designer eco-lodges.

Situated just a 15-minute walk from the sandy shores of Portreath Beach, Gwel an Mor is the jewel in Cornwall’s coastal crown. The cobbled streets of picturesque St Ives are just a stone’s throw away, as is Cornwall’s small but perfectly formed capital city, Truro. And of course there are beaches aplenty; some of the county’s finest stretches of sand are just a short drive away, including Godrevy, Porthtowan and Fistral. However, with resort facilities such as archery, tennis, golf, fishing and a wellbeing spa, it’s a wonder how owners manage to peel themselves away.

Gwel an Mor’s eco-lodges are no less impressive. Exquisitely designed, each stunning retreat boasts a generous array of state-of-the-art designer features, from atmospheric mood lighting, woodburners and instantaneous hot-water taps, to sliding doors onto a sun deck and a plasma TV at the foot of the bath. The pièce de résistance has to be the outdoor hot tub – the perfect spot to luxuriate under a starry sky.

The benefits of owners letting their lodge are undeniable. Open 52 weeks a year, just 32 letting breaks can cover running costs, letting management fees, housekeeping services, hot tub cleans and generate a potential income of £21,000. The cherry on top? A fully managed premier letting service from Gwel an Mor itself. 

It’s safe to say Gwel an Mor’s five-star retreat is an extremely tempting option for those who crave the luxury holiday lifestyle. Close to Cornwall’s main transport links, the location boasts the best of both worlds, ensuring owners and guests alike can get there easily, while still feeling a million miles away from day-to-day life.
