The space
Cartws Bach is a beautifully converted 18th century carthouse on a quiet country lane near the north Pembrokeshire village of Eglwyswrw. Full of character with exposed original beams and sloping ceilings, this pretty cottage is delightfully welcoming.

Sympathetically restored to conservation standards with a simple yet elegant feel, it is attached to a 100 foot granary barn where the hosts live. The barn (The Granary) and cottage form one side of the courtyard at the old farm of Bwlch Garregllwyd. Cartws Bach is south facing and looks out into its own little garden for quiet relaxation. Please be quiet in the front garden areas and no music or radio outside thank you as noise travels easily in the courtyard to neighbouring properties. This will only suit you if you don't mind being quiet outside.

Conveniently situated near the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and Cardigan Bay, the main bus route is only two minutes’ walk, and the coastal towns of Cardigan and Newport are only 7 minutes’ drive.

Accommodation
Wooden painted stairs lead up from the living room/kitchen to the SLEEPING AREA with one double bed in a curtained nook and one twin room all with extremely comfortable organic cotton mattresses.
The upstairs room is cleverly divided by a rustic wood-panelled byre - giving two distinct sleeping areas with their own character - the double bed in a dark wooded area and the two singles in a cheerfully painted cabin room.

*Both rooms look up to the original beamed roof. The 'rooms' are open divided by a wooden 7 foot partition. As a result, there is a slight compromise on privacy from a noise perspective. This arrangement may not suit you.

The bathroom has a good shower within a 3/4 sized bath, wash basin, toilet and mosaic tiling. The water is solar or wood-burner heated with eco-electric back up which is always on.

On the ground floor, the open plan kitchen/living area looks out through the distinctive archway into the garden giving a lovely open feel to the room. Fully equipped with Belfast sink and slate worktops, a dishwasher, washing machine, fridge. Fireplace shelves hold a well stocked and eclectic book collection for all ages and a great film selection of DVDs can be watched through a TV although there is no aerial or satellite.

Hemp, lime and clay paint give the walls an organic character, the wooden and slate floor a traditional feel, with beams and a woodburner adding to the atmosphere.

Outside
The property is set in 3 acres with lawns, vegetable gardens, woods, flower meadow and pond. Our grassy track leads down to a green lane (ancient bridleway) which in turn will lead you to many footpaths and tracks to explore. Off road parking for two cars. The cottage setting is in an old farm courtyard, with adjacent private residential properties in the house and other barn. It is very peaceful and has a relaxed, laid back atmosphere.

Where you’ll be

Eglwyswrw, Wales, United Kingdom

Our location is so convenient. Although we are tucked down a really idyllic little country lane (bursting with flowers in the spring and early summer) the main road isn't far away so getting in to Cardigan or Newport couldn't be easier - 10 mins and you are at shops / wine / the beach / the cinema etc.

Hello! Cartws Bach and ArtHouse Barn Studio are zero carbon eco-friendly holiday cottages- created from a derelict barn- which we have created and lived in starting off in a £500 caravan for 4 years in 2007. We have not taken a home from local people to provide your holiday home so that feels good.

We welcome all people from all backgrounds here - and will help you in any way we can to ensure you have a relaxing and happy time here. We live here too so are on hand if you need anything, but we won’t disturb you.

Mick is a retired builder now he has finished the barn he is now "The Gardener" spending his time working in the garden and grounds and tending his forest garden.

I work for the Mindfulness Association and am a designer/map illustrator (My Cardigan maps are up around the town) and also a community workshop leader-(giant knitted Cardigan of Cardigan in Stiwdio 3 on the High Street in Cardigan. Www.ArtHouse (Website hidden by Airbnb)

We love nature, aesthetics and a peaceful, simple life. We are relaxed and want visitors to share what we have here and enjoy the relaxed space, peace and nature.

Now we have finished all the building work; both Cartws Bach and the Art House Studio are available to rent. Our attention has now moved onto the gardens and are looking forward to all the little garden details we can add to the grounds to create a space where people can relax and take time for contemplation.

We positively welcome any feedback as we really want this place to be the best it can be for all our guests.

We love having you to stay and are always on hand to help you if you need to talk about where to explore or go to eat.

We have a shaggy dog Dusty (he's a bit odd) and teabag the cat who was described in one review as " the nicest cat I've ever met" haha he seems to have become a bit of a hero- he will want to visit you.

Our neighbours are sensitive to noise - it's a quiet place, please respect the quiet nature of the property.

The accommodation is eco friendly - the products we leave for you are bought from cooperative company SUMA and are as much as possible environmentally friendly. That's important to us.

During your stay

We are right next door if you need anything but we won't disturb you. If you need anything you can text us or bang on the door ( the last door down at the other end of the barn) we are happy to chat and help you with local advice on what to do and where to go or if you get stuck with lighting the woodburner etc! This is a peaceful setting and so we appreciate visitors who respect that too.
