Perfect location with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

My partner & I stayed in the Carthouse for a week in May 2017 with our German Shepherd. The Carthouse has been renovated to a high standard & has everything you could possibly need. The views from the kitchen are stunning. Martha, Mark & the boys were very welcoming & there was an enormous freshly baked loaf of bread waiting for us on the kitchen table. I must not forget to mention Billy the dog who visited us daily to catch up with our dog. There are several walks directly from the cottage that join up with the Pembrokeshire coastal path. While there are several small sandy beaches within walking distance, our favourite is Newport Sands, which is a short drive away. It is the biggest sandy beach I've seen in the UK, is dog friendly & you can even park your car on the beach. The Carthouse is the perfect location from which to explore Pembrokshire & we hope to be back again soon.

The cottage was very well equipped in all areas and was a pleasure to return to after a day out.This is an upside down cottage with the lounge upstairs with a very good entertainment system..We listened to Classic f.m a lot, especially before dinner and the sound quality in the room was very good.The kitchen was well laid out and stocked with everthing to prepare an evening meal. the cottage is very convenient for walks along the Pembrokeshire coast and local beaches. We really enjoyed the walk around dinas island aprox 2-3 hours with stops, stupendous views and some great bird life on the cliffs. St Davids well worth a visit the Cathedral has stunning architecture inside and nearby you are spoilt for choice for lunch options all very high quality but reasonably priced.{Mark and Martha were married in the Cathederal] We only saw Mark through the week and he gave us some useful information on areas worth visiting in the local area.Martha also very kindly sourced an address for us of a supplier of a regional product we were interested in many thanks to you both. We would recommend this cottage for any couple looking for quality accommodation in this area of the Pembrokeshire Coast you would not be disappointed

My perfect getaway !!

  • 5 of 5

The Carthouse for me is pretty perfect, a quiet and serene location with outstanding views. Martha has done a fabulous job of the renovation and decoration and the whole house is well equipped. Pembrokeshire offers evertything you need to do as much or as little as you care to do , beaches are beautiful , sea is clear and the coastline is stunning. The property is dog friendly in every way, my Labradors were in complete dog heaven here and we really didn’t want to leave. If you want peace and tranquillity on your holiday you will love The Carthouse. I do 😁?
