About Michelle Rees

Hi, we're Arwyn and Michelle. We moved to Pembrokeshire 6 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.

Why Michelle Rees chose Newport

Y Storws and Cartws are the ideal base for exploring the delights of Pembrokeshire and even Ceredigion. They are charming and unique conversions bursting with character and offer many luxury features to make your stay unbeatable.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Diolch yn fawr unwaith eto! This is our third time we have stayed at this wonderful 'bwythyn', and it will definitely not be our last. Peace and tranquillity (even in the face of Atlantic storm) combined with an excellent standard of accommodation. A great formula for a stress free break.

Fabulous property in a fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with the property the moment we walked through the door! Fantastic barn conversion done to a high standard! It’s a brilliant place to go and just watch the world go by. I booked for my wife’s 30th and she loved it! Michelle the owner is brilliant from the moment you book to the moment you leave! Her personal touches with the flowers, cake and birthday card for my wife made it even more special. The property is a great place to go if you want to get it away from it all but has places only a short drive away if you wish to do a coastal walk. The barn is also only a close drive to a spar shop and lovely pub the golden lion. We really didn’t want to leave but will defiantly be heading back! Thank you Michelle and family for a fantastic long weekend.

Perfect Summer Getaway with the Pooches!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Storws with our two beagles, Nyla and Monty. Driving through the Pembrokeshire winding lanes and countryside before arriving at the farm was charming enough, but once the stunning cottages and their equally divine surroundings came into view, we were completely blown away. Opening the door of Storws, we stepped into a picture-perfect cottage, tastefully done and complete with all the finishing touches: we were even welcomed by a homemade Lemon Drizzle, fresh bunch of flowers and a card, which started our holiday off beautifully. Everything was perfect (even better than in the pictures) and we were greeted shortly after by Michelle and her daughter, who assured us if we needed anything, they were only a phonecall or text away.

I would certainly recommend a stay at Storws and we hope to return in the near future!

Lovely, warm, well equipped cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We had a really lovely stay in this thoughtfully appointed cottage. It was warm, comfortable, spotlessly clean and the owners were very helpful from booking to departure. The only sounds we heard were the sheep with their lambs in the field! It was a lovely private spot, beautiful views and the local area beautiful. We visited Poppit Sands, Newport Beach, St Davids, Solva, Cardigan & Castle, Aberaeron and Newquay!

Thank you for a lovely stay Michelle!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Luxurious barn conversion in a peaceful setting with everything you need for a relaxing romantic break. Welcomed with a tasty lemon drizzle cake! The owners have thought of everything to make sure you have a thoroughly relaxing time from DVD players, wood burners, underfloor heating and beautiful views. Would wholeheartedly recommend this accommodation. 10 mins from Newport that has 2 great pubs serving fantastic food.
