The cottage was spotlessly clean,the location was tranquil and beautiful. We enjoyed watching the birds visiting the feeder,it was a treat to see bullfinches,and a nuthatch.
We loved the cosy evenings ,after a days walking, in front of the woodburner after a comforting bath.

“Fantastic cottage, great hosts, great location in an outstanding area of Wales. Frosty and cold during our stay but unseasonably sunny. We were out and about everyday before returning, suitably tired, to a roaring log fire. The starlings at Aberystwyth is a must-see event, the local beaches, red kites at Nant-y-Arian, Dyfi Wildlife Centre are just some of the great places to visits. Say hello to the goats and Roscoe for us!”

“Our week at the beautiful cottage was, quite simply, magical.
Without doubt it is one of the most lovely places I've ever stayed in.
Norma and James have created something so special and one feels so welcome and so comfortable straight away.
The woodland walks, the meadows, the lovely lanes with deep, sunlit green 'tunnels' , the proximity to the sea. All perfect.
We will go back again as soon as we can.

The attention to detail was impressive and most appreciated; from candles, roses and bubble bath by the roll-top bath to the vast array of wonderful walking routes and maps supplied. Also to mention a selection of 'basics' in the kitchen; from washing up liquid and hand soap to vegetable oil and gravy! Thank you! We are planning our return for next year!”

Feedback - Feb 2018

“Norma and James have thought of everything to make your stay cosy, comfortable and convenient. Y Cartws was a real delight, especially the wonderful roll top bath with bubble bath and candles, cosy evenings in front of the wood burner and sleeping in a lovely bed under the eaves listening to the wind and rain. Watching the birds outside the window on the bird feeder was a real treat, especially when they were joined by a kamikaze squirrel! Norma and James were helpful when we needed them to be with advice on pubs and local walks, but they also allowed us privacy to enjoy their beautiful sheltered farm. Wig Farm lies in a beautiful area with wonderful beaches, coast walks and lovely pubs within a short distance.”

“We had a fantastic week staying at Y Cartws, a well equipped and cosy cottage. Beautiful surroundings, with lots of wildlife, and a safe place for our dog to run around. James and Norma make us very welcome, were discreet, but on hand should anything be needed. There's lots to do and see around Llangrannog and the local area, and the cottage had lots of information and maps available for exploring. One of our highlights was seeing dolphins close up from a boat trip at New Quay. Highly recommended.”

“A wonderful week in a cosy , dog friendly cottage, made perfect by unbroken sun. Friendly owners made the whole process painless. The area is unspoilt and the walks are stunning.
Serenaded for a week by a wall of birdsong.
There are wonderful places to eat within a fifteen minute drive. If they were in any other place they would cost double.
We hope to go back sometime because this week the dolphins were elusive!”

The area Y Cartws is situated in is beautiful, with stunning walks along scenic coast paths close by. Langrannog itself is a lovely little seaside village with a superb beach.
I would recommend this cottage and location for an "away from it all" holiday, and it would especially appeal to dog lovers who enjoy superb walking with their dog, also welcome in the cottage.
Thankyou Norma and James from Meryl & Budgie.”
