We drove all the way to Fishguard and then Cardigan. The Cart House is very comfortable and we would love to come again. Overall we had a great time exploring west Wales every night I helped mummy cook and wash up which I loved. I took Archie for walks some times and its really fun. One night Andy put the fire on and left it on all night and in the morning it was real hot. Lots of Love.

The cottage is lovely with all home comforts provided with a great location, We've had good fun in the sea and have explored Pembrokeshires ancient monuments. Hopefully we will be lucky enough to return.
A very relaxing break made more enjoyable by the comfort provided by Cart House. We had everything we needed to get the most from our time here Thank you for sharing it with us.
Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely cottage. First time we have visited this area and we think it is beautiful, wonderfil place for dogs. Thank you.
We Have all had a wonderful stay. We can thoroughly recommend the kayak tours fom Newgale beach - "Big Paul" took us out around the coastline, into caves, showed us how to fish for Mackerel and then how to gut out catch which we bbq'd on the beach. Folly farm was fantastic for Brian and he loved all the animals and plying on the tractors. The pub quiz at the Victoria at the top of the road was a good laugh although I suspect there was a little cheating going on. Thank you for a wonderful stay. We will definitely be back again.
Wonderful location, warm and cozy cottage and extremely lucky with the weather! Another fantastic 2 weeks in sunny Pembs. Boys have had a fabulous time jumping waves at Newgale, rock pooling at Druidstone and crabbing at Solva. The outside space here has been particularly appreciated on return from the beach. Its great to get the towels de-sanded on the line. Having the opportunity to bath rather than shower the boys has also been appreciated. Thank you for sharing your lovely home I have a feeling we will be back.
Despite the chilly weather we had a very enjoyable stay here, Enjoyed some lovely sunny coastal walks around Newgale and St Davids A day trip to Skomer Island is a must for wildlife enthusiasts. Dinner at the Druidstone Hotel watching the sun set is definitely worth doing. Thank you for your kind hospitality.
Thank you for allowing us to stay in the cottage with our beloved dogs Hugh and Bo Belle. We have walked and walked! The scenary is breathtaking, we have stayed up late and got up late with no plans of what we have to do!! The perfect switch off completely. So back to reality!!
Relaxing time in cottage. Lovely to re-connect with childhood holiday haunts. Gorgeous experience eating at Druidstone Hotel. Thanks you.
Cosy Cottage in a fantastic location. Newgale beach is cuperb! Dinner at the Cambrian is a must - although best to book! Thank you.
This was our first visit to Pembrokeshire and I feel sure we will return. The weather has been beautiful. We have enjoyed lots of walks over the cliffs with our dog. The cottage is lovely comfortable and homely. We had a perfect last evening - we took fish and chips down to Newgale beach and watched the surfers and a fantastic sunset. Thank you.
Many thanks once again Jenny and John for providing a peaceful haven in our favourite part of the country. Lovely week as always see you in the autumn.
The cottage lived upto our expectations as was super clean, cosy, and warm and in a great location. Having never explored Pembrokeshire what a treat! However we still loved coming back to Newgale Beach everytime - the view is so impressive. Both the cottage and the area is so welcoming and dog friendly. The white rug a firm faviurite with our Boxer Kathy. Tenby was a lovely day out and Picton, Haverfordwest, St Davids and Pemborke all worth a trip - our son loved the varied castles to explore. Great as he is doing Tudor history at primary school.
Another super stay at our favourite home from home altho we really think the weather could have tried harder as we gave lots of notice we were coming!! A real adventure this year Kit(3) and Samantha (4)! Thanks so much for having us. Happy Easter.
Spring came with a vengance. Hardly a cloud all week. Lovely holiday with delight in every detail. Thanks for a lovely pristine cottage where even the flys know there place and seemed to stay outside. Thanks for the memories.
It's a year since we last stayed at the Cart House but felt like coming home! Big thank you to Jenny and John for our lovely welcome. Look forward to returning very soon.
The cottage is everything you could want, one of the best we have ever stayed in. Pembrokeshire is the most beautiful county, the patchwork fields and views as far as the eye can see. The beautiful beaches- everything so clean- a wonderful place to relax, plenty to do if you want to get out and about. Thank you for a most enjoyable stay.
Beautiful, cosy cottage in a special place. Perfect way to end one year and see in the next.

Joseph(7) and Anya(5) loved every minute. So much to do, beautiful beaches for exploring. Fantastic cottage. Love to return
What a wonderful, peaceful week. The Cart House is so well appointed and comfortable and such a warm welcome. We have walked miles on the coastal path with our young dog, the roadside flowers & wild meadows have been at their very best. The beaches are superb- visit as many as you can for every one is different. Plenty of good places to eat within a few miles of Roch. Pembrokeshire was even more beautiful than we expected.
Thank you for a wonderful week. We had such a lovely time here: a very peaceful place full of character and charm. Lovely for Jude’s first holiday. Best wishes
What a beautiful cottage! Absolutely everything you want and need and it’s so relaxing.
Can’t believe it’s 12 years since we last stayed. We were delighted when we found the Cart House in Coastal Cottages and even more so to find it still owned by Jenny & John. We had a lovely week. The Cart House is a credit to you. We love it.
What a beautiful & welcoming cottage in a lovely peaceful location. We’ve enjoyed Little Haven, Broad Haven, St Davids, Whitesands, Poppit Sands, Newgale (of course)! fabulous walk round St Annes Head, lovely meal at Keeston Kitchen and just relaxing around the cottage.
Back again! An excellent week and our thanks as always to Jenny John & Jo. See you next year.
Lovely peaceful cottage- Enjoyed- endless hours on Newgale beach; watching the bats in the lane; the RIB boat ride around Ramsey- saw seal pups, peregrine, purple sandpiper; a walk along the coastal path revealed an adder enjoying the sunshine; riding- western style; sitting enjoying the early evening in the garden, when a barn owl flew over the gate right beside us! Everything has been just perfect here, fabulous location, warm cosy cottage, friendly people. We shall be back!
It has been a great pleasure to return here. The Cart House, maintaining such high standards, in beautiful Pembrokeshire will always win 'first prize'.
A lovely place to celebrate the new year. We've been to there cottages mant times but you have to book early - so many last minute trips have been elsewhere. The standards in these cottages (Cart House and Byre (30663) are unmatched.
Beautiful cottage, such attention to detail from sharp knives, good pans to pegs. A relaxing place, thanks.
Our second visit to the Cart House and every bit as enjoyable as the first! Delightful cottage and beautiful Pembrokeshire - the perfect combination! Thanks Jenny.
Our first visit to Pembrokeshire but not our last! The cottage was all we could have hoped for - so nice to see such a lovely conversion with all mod cons but keeping the character of the old building. Particularly enjoyed reading by the lake in the sunshine and feeding the fish.
The Cart House has been a lovely base for a holiday - it is immaculate and so nicely furnished. The children loved the garden and the toys which are here. All in all a lovely, peaceful holiday spot. Thank you Jenny and family.
We only stayed a few days but wish we could have stayed longer. Next time we come here to Pembrokeshire it will definitely be here. Everything was so clean and cosy. Thank you for the finishing touches - fresh milk & flowers.
A really relaxing holiday. The cottage is lovely and a really handy location to explore Pembrokeshire. The scenery is beautiful and so uncrowded. First visit to Pembrokeshire and we look forward to returning
