Exciting Developments for Gwel an Mor

The multi-award winning Gwel an Mor resort in Portreath have kick-started 2018 with an array of significant new business developments.

In a newly created role, Matt Way has been appointed to join the Senior Management Team as Resort’s Director. With 30 years experience in the holiday park business, Matt’s wealth of knowledge spans both the Cornish and European holiday sectors with Matt most recently holding the title of General Manager at Hendra Holiday Park, Newquay.

Along with the appointment of Matt Way, the company has announced their planned expansion, with the business actively searching for further opportunities in the holiday sector in the South West with the aim to add a second resort to their portfolio in the near future. Matt’s role will be to oversee the running of Gwel an Mor and to manage the development of new sites.

Furthermore the resort has formed a partnership with well-established European holiday brand – Landal GreenParks. From 5th February 2018 the resort will become part of the Landal GreenParks family, rebranding as Landal Gwel an Mor.

Established in 1954 in Holland, a much loved and trusted brand across mainland Europe, Landal GreenParks are celebrated for their focus on nature, family, hostmanship and highlighting local values – all which have been key to Gwel an Mor’s success over the last 12 years. Now expanding into the UK market. Gwel an Mor have been selected to become the third Landal park in this country and will be the only location in Cornwall joining Landal Darwin Forest in the Peak District and Landal Kielder Waterside in Northumberland.

 “It is an extremely exciting time for Gwel an Mor with the growth of the business a testament to our dedicated team’s outstanding work over the last twelve years, building such a well respected resort. Our partnership with Landal GreenParks will help us realise our ambitions to continue growing in welcoming a wider European market of travellers. We are seeing more and more overseas guests who have a growing interest in holidays in Cornwall and in particular the high standards our resort has to offer. We are proud to be opening Cornwall up to a further market of 3 million Landal GreenParks customers each year and thrilled to be joining forces with such a well respected brand” Commented Bill Haslam, Chief Executive of Gwel an Mor www.gwelanmor.com
