“We really enjoyed our stay at Y Cartws, the cottage was perfect for our stay. the owners were superb and made sure we had everything we needed for the duration of our stay. Being able to have access the farm was great for the kids and the dog and the log burner was perfect the autumnal nights. We will definitely return.”

Mali and Jakob the donkeys greeted us everyday and were so friendly. The family made us feel extremely welcome throughout our stay. Will definately be back and would highly recommend others to visit. The beds are so comfy we had an excellent sleep each night.”

“This is our second visit to the cottage and, like last time, it didn’t disappoint. We had a wonderful stay in Y Cartws. It’s so cosy, peaceful and homely. Our girls (4 and 8 years old) loved feeding and stroking the resident donkeys on the farm and Glenda and her lovely extended family were the perfect hosts. There are lovely walks in the immediate area and such a variety of activities to do in the surrounding area. In our week stay we’ve seen the seal pups on Ramsey Island, kayaked on the river Teifi, body boarded at the many beautiful nearby beaches, crabbed at Saint Dogmaels and experienced Celtic life at the local Iron Age Fort. We look forward to making more memories next year!”

“We had a wonderful stay in Y Cartws with our two children aged 7 and 3 years and it was a wonderful base for exploring the beautiful surrounding area. Among many outings we body boarded in Mwnt, Tresaith beach and New Quay, we kayaked on the River Teifi and even rode the Rheidol Valley Steam Train from Aberystwyth. So much to do, such little time. It was home from home and very cosy. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming. We loved exploring the fields surrounding the farm and feeding Marley and Molly (the resident donkeys) daily carrots. We look forward to visiting again!”

“This is a fantastic cottage in a wonderful area; from arriving on the Saturday, we were made to feel very welcome. The cottage is lovely and was very tidy with everything you could need for your holiday. The kids loved feeding the donkey (Mali) and I'm sure she enjoyed the carrots and ginger biscuits. You are only a couple of miles from Cardigan where you have some nice shops and an excellent pizza restaurant (Pizza Tipi) as well as an excellent beach called Poppit sands.
This is a place we would recommend for a holiday and would love to come back too.
Thank you to the owners and their family for making us feel welcome.”

Feedback - Jul 2017

“We really liked the cottage. It was pretty and well maintained. The rooms were a good size and the modern bathroom was really nice. The kitchen had everything we needed and a nice patio area outside, not necessary suitable for smaller children but enjoyed by the adults. The donkeys were a really nice addition and we enjoyed feeding them carrots in the morning! Location was perfect, and only a short drive to the town and beach.
We have already agreed we would like to stay again at some point .”

“Lovely cottage situated on a beautiful farm. The children, dogs and ourselves spent many happy hours exploring the woods and valley. The nearby beach, Poppit Sands, is large, clean and unspoiled.

Within easy driving distance of the tourist spots of Pembrokeshire it was the perfect home from home.

The owners are welcoming, friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable about the land they work.”

“A really relaxing stay in a fabulous location. Bonus guided tour of the farm one evening was a lovely treat.”

Feedback - Jul 2016

“A perfect retreat. Far enough away for peace - the only noise being the crackling wood in the log burner and the gentle mooing of cows. Yet close enough to beaches and walks for those more energetic moments.
Well equipped cottage leaving you wanting for nothing - just dont forget the carrots for Jacob & Mali the donkeys.
Excellent communication throughout with Mr & Mrs Evans. Highly recommended.”

We stayed over Christmas and the cottage was warm, inviting and cosy and the owners called round to see if we needed any logs for the fire or anything else we required.
The cottage itself was beautiful and well equipped with everything you would need for a leisure break in west Wales.”

I would highly recommend either of the cottages at the farm. Thank you Glenda for a most pleasant stay! Erica, Gemma and Neville :-)))”
