About Eirlys Williams
Hello, my name is Eirlys Williams. My husbands family have lived and farmed here at Maesyfelin for generations, we are the 7th here. We decided to convert Y Cartws about 12 years ago, it used to be a stable and cart-house. It has been a holiday cottage now for 11 years. I do all the job's that go with letting a holiday cottage, cleaning, advertising, paperwork, home cooking ect... We are fluent Welsh speakers, so we could give you a few lessons! Have very good knowledge of the area as we have both lived here all our lives. Also we are both always happy to help our guests with anything we possibly can.
Eirlys Williams purchased this Cottage in 2006
Why Eirlys Williams chose Whitland
2006 is the year we converted the out building.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage is in a very peaceful area. Hear the birdsong during the day, see the red kites fly above around the farm area. A walk down to our stream and woodland area is only 5 minutes. Hear the owls call in the evening and if it's a clear night it's the perfect place for star gazing with its dark sky. It is in the middle of the three counties of Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire, so there's ample choice of beautiful beaches whichever direction you decide to go. There is a shop and garage just a mile up the road. Our nearest small town is Narberth which has plenty of little boutique style shops, coffee shops, restaurants and much much more.

Relaxing getaway in fabulous family accommodation
Eirlys, Paul and their two sons were very kind and friendly hosts. Whilst we had some trouble finding the accommodation, Eirlys came to the rescue and there was no looking back. The barn, which has been converted into accommodation, is spacious and very well appointed. Apart from food and personal affects, everything that we needed was supplied. We particularly enjoyed the farm fresh eggs, milk and cake that was waiting for us when we arrived.
The farm, Y-Cartws, is in a central location in the south. It was easy to visit the highlights of the Pembrokshire region. Eirlys gave us some good recommendations and a walking guide book that helped us to decide on our daily adventures. Another highlight was a little tour of the farm that enabled my nearly one year old son to see sheep and chickens for the first time.
For those wishing to stay here, the easiest way to find it is to type "Y Cartws holiday cottage" into Google Maps, and it will direct you to the exact location.
Thank you for having us, Eirlys and family!
Thank you very much for your kind words, it was a pleasure to have you stay at Y Cartws whilst you had your mini break in Pembrokeshire. If ever you are planning another trip to the area it would be great to welcome you back. Hopefully the Pembrokeshire coast and Preseli Mountains provided you with all the fresh air you needed over the new year. Thanks once again from all the Williams’s

We have just spent six days in Y Cartws..a wonderful property with everything we needed for a comfortable base for our family.

We spent lovely days exploring the lovely coastline and Castles and comfortable evenings in the cottage. We will certainly be booking again.

Perfect home from home.
What can I say other than fantastic.
The property is located within a rural setting surrounded by fields. There is very easy access to Tenby and other tourist and necessary amenities.
The layout of the cottage is very functional and is extremely easy to see that it is clean and easy to keep clean.
The hosts are extremely pleasant and accommodating and were more than willing to facilitate our sons (2 years old) desire to sit in a tractor whenever he wanted.
I would highly recommend this property as a base to explore Pembrokeshire.
Thank you for your kind words, it was a pleasure to have you and your family stay here at Y Cartws. Thanks for leaving the cottage nice and clean.

The cottage was great! Clean, spacious, and comfortable.
We had a lovely time. The cottage had everything we needed. There was attention to small details; washing up liquid, dish cloth and tea towels provided. Laundry room was very useful. Hosts were very friendly and helpful - there if you needed them but let you get on with the holiday. Pembrokeshire is so beautiful I defy anyone not to enjoy it, especially with the wonderful weather we had.
Thank you very much for your kind review, it was a pleasure to have you and your family stay with us here at Y Cartws. Thank you for leaving the cottage absolutely spotlessly clean. Pembrokeshire is a magical place! We are so lucky to live in such a picturesque part of Wales.
We had a very nice stay at the cottage surrounded by a lot of sheeps. It was idyllic. We stayed for 13 days. We had a lot of quietness and got relaxed very well. The three dogs of the farm were the favorite of our three children.
The owner live at the cottage too and they are very helpful, friendly, cooperative and we got the chance to get an inside look into the work of a sheepfarmer. It was great! Thanks Eirelys and Paul, we often think back to the good time we had at your cottage!!
The owner provide a very good customer service, the holiday flat is clean, well-maintained and got games for Kids, DVDs and some books (used on rainy days!).
We made a lot of day trips to the castles around, to points of interest, to the seaside.
It was a great vacation for us!! Thank you!! We like to come back!!
Thank you very much for your kind words. Glad you enjoyed your vacation in Wales. It was a pleasure to have you all out with the sheep, it's nice to be able to give an insight to how a sheep farm is ran day to day and as we live just opposite the cottage we are always happy to help with anything. If ever you and your family are in Wales again you're more than welcome to stay at Y Cartws, it would be lovely to see you all. Thank you for being great guests.
