Currently nearing the end of our summer holiday here. Everything is still top notch - this time we are staying in 'The Residence' which is the nicest accommodation yet: a 'spa shower' in the en-suite, hot tub on the decking and even a TV in the family bathroom! This time we took the kids (4 and 2) on a rock pooling trip with Gary, the resident wildlife ranger, which we all thoroughly enjoyed. The wildlife centre at Gwel an Mor is a real gem and totally unique among UK holiday parks.
All in all another great week. And with an indoor play barn opening soon (unfortunately delayed due to bad weather) Gwel an Mor is set to get even better.
