About the Owner

Hi, we're Arwyn and Michelle. We moved to Pembrokeshire 3 years ago with our daughters Manon & Nia. Arwyn is originally from the area and Michelle is from Southampton. After some years away we both decided that Pembrokeshire and all its delights had won us over and we couldn't wait to make our home in this truly beautiful part of the world. There is so much to explore and with the changing seasons we could never tire of it. We live in the farmhouse nearby and are on hand if our guests need any help or advice about local places to visit but completely respect our guests' privacy and need for peace and solitude.

Perfect 5* cottage

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have wished for a more perfect stay, Y Cartws was everything we'd hoped for and more, a wonderfully luxurious, spacious cottage amidst the most picturesque countryside where only the wildlife interrupts the silence...bliss!

Michelle was a fabulous host and her lemon drizzle cake certainly lived up to it's reputation! Her care and attention to detail in making a comfortable, clean and relaxing home for her guests is faultless.

This is a perfect base from which to explore this beautiful part of Wales; Abereiddy and a walk to the 'witches cauldron' from Ceibwr bay were our highlights, but you'll have to drag yourself away from the cottage first!

Hope we get to return someday, we'd love to try coming in the colder months, cosy in, light that log-burner and hope to get snowed in!

Home from home accomodation in a tranquil setting

  • 5 of 5

After a long drive we were welcomed by breath taking views and a surprisingly larger than expected holiday barn.

There was nothing we could fault but only praise the cleanliness and 'new' feel to the rooms, crisp sheets, delicious cake and lovely flowers. Little finishing touches that made our two weeks a delight. Plenty of well researched information for the local and surrounding area. Highly recommended and such a shame we had to leave. Thanks Michelle & Alwyn for making us feel so welcome.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

It was a beautiful property and great care had been taken to make guests feel very comfortable. We loved the way the conversion had been done. We were warmly welcomed and felt very relaxed during our stay. The bed was so comfortable that on our return home I went straight to Dunelm and bought an identical mattress topper!! Many thanks for that, Michelle!🛌💤

An outstanding holiday cottage

  • 5 of 5

As you approach Y Cartws, along a narrow private road, your first impression is of a beautiful cottage with a lovely view and excellently maintained. The interior backs this up - it has been finished to a very high standard and was very well equipped and nice and clean. We stayed hear for 1 week with my 83 year old mother and it was ideal as it has all the facilities on the ground floor plus the added bonus of a double (or twin) bedroom upstairs with it`s own bathroom and shower cubicle. The owner, Michelle is really nice and very helpful and left us a lovely lemon cake and eggs from her own chickens. I feel that I should, perhaps, add a few negative comments to balance the review, but all I could think of was that it could do with a few grab rails in the ground floor shower to assist the elderly or less able. But I knew this when I booked so I`m not complaining. I would recommend this cottage and would definitely use it again.

A wonderful week in Y Cartws

  • 5 of 5

I cannot overstate how lovely this property is. The conversion is beautifully furnished and so well equipped. The bathrooms are particularly spacious. The secluded setting, with views over the fields add to the charm and make Y Cartws perfect for a relaxing holiday. Michelle was lovely and very accommodating when we had to change our plans.

This was our second trip to Y Cartws, after enjoying a week there last October. We were able to explore areas not visited last time. This location is a great base to visit the south and west coasts as well as beaches along the north coast. Cardigan, with a large Tescos, is handy for shopping, only 9 miles away.

We would love to return again next year.

Superb!!!!

  • 5 of 5

One of the best holiday rental properties that we have ever stayed in ....

Not only was it beautifully decorated with stunning bathrooms (our boys particularly liked the waterfall taps!!) but really homely and well equipped. The delicious cake on arrival was most welcome after a long journey. Also, a lovely view of the countryside and walks from our doorstep. So much to do in the surrounding area that we are already planning our return visit, and will definitely be staying at Cartws.
