We loved our weekend away at Carreg Las. The house is beautiful, v comfortable and v peaceful. The owners have thought of everything. We are keen to return soon!
Cartref oddi cartref! Yn ddi-os, y llety hunanarlwyo gorau i ni aros ynddo. Roedd Carreg Las yn berffaith - cyfforddus, chwaethus a chlud.
Wow! What a stunning cottage! We loved the incredibly stylish and inspiring interior. And in a beautiful part of the country. We had a wonderful weekend, perfect for my birthday celebration. Thank you Under The Thatch, for yet another fantastic holiday! The Johnsons, Bath.
We had a lovely week at Carreg Las. The house has been decorated with so much care and imagination. We loved all the Welsh textiles and the gloriously light dining area was our favourite place to be. It was especially good to be able to walk to both beaches from the house as well as having great food shops and cafes practically on the doorstep. The house was a comfortable and welcoming haven for us all.
What a lovely place to stay : )
Fabulous cottage in a really lovely village. A nice bike ride to beaches or a few minutes in the car. The finish of the house is fabulous - not a very toddler friendly garden but that was the only downside. I'm sure we'll be back.
Amazing cottage, great location. In particular, love the bi-folding doors so you can be inside and outside at the same time! We will return!!
Absolutely fantastic house finished off to an extremely high standard. Very cool - but still very homely. lovely location, very quick into the town, with good restaurants and pubs in a few minutes walk.
We LOVED this cottage, its just so beautiful - I adored all the details. Newport is just lovely and you don't even need to leave the village if you don't want to. I do hope we'll be back!
A lovely comfortable house with plenty of charm and character, but with all the mod cons The house met all our needs as a family of five, will definitely stay again.
We had a wonderful time at Carreg Las. The cottage is beautiful- thoughtfully decorated with lovely, original furniture. It felt homely and very unfussy too so great for our adventurous toddler too. Gwenllian the housekeeper was extremely helpful, and we can only apologise again for taking home the hairdryer with us by mistake!! We'd love to come back again in the summer months as there is so much to explore in this stunning area and we loved Newport. Thanks again!
Very comfortable stay at Carreg Las. We loved how the house has been renovated to blend contemporary with traditional and also how the feeling of Welshness permeates throughout. Hyfryd iawn. 22nd November 2015
Fantastic holiday in an amazing place. The cottage is decorated beautifully and we spent many mornings relaxing at the kitchen table and then evenings warming by the fire. It was great to have such a range of restaurants and pubs in walking distance of the cottage.
Roedd Carreg Las yn fendigedig. We absolutely loved Carreg Las. It is beautifully fitted out, located right in my middle of Newport and - already mentioned - has the best kitchen-diner EVER which leads on to a gorgeous garden. We all fantasised about living there forever but real life interfered, sadly. The cottage, with its slate floors, Solva Mill rugs, drench shower and artisan feel comes very highly recommended- and it was within 100 paces of the Llew Aur where we were able to watch the Rugby World Cup. The October sun also shone throughout. Result all round.
Super short break at this gorgeous property in a lovely location with a number of great walks straight from the door - fantastic and highly recommended!
We've just spent a wonderful week here at this beautiful Georgian cottage. As soon as we pulled up at the front door we had high expectations and we were not disappointed . The style of the decor is just to our taste and carried out with much thoughtfulness . It is high on comfort and the owners have obviously thought hard about what guests want and it made our experience just lovely. The new glass extension is a real success and the large garden is a treat in good weather (which we were lucky to have). The village of Newport is very friendly, has good shops and eateries and a fabulous beach. The cottage (?) is very convenient for stuff as it's slap bang in the middle ,right by the church. We can think of no negatives apart,perhaps tthe lack of off-street parking although we always were able to park our car right outside the cottage. It was lovely, exemplary and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it or indeed stay there again.
We had fantastic week staying at Carreg Las, the cottage is an absolute cracker. Finished in a style & to a standard that both Helen & I search out. The areas around Newport & indeed Newport itself are stunning. Very friendly locals & great pubs & good food all round. I headed to the hills for some really challenging cycling on roads that were so quiet & some 25% climbs that were great to attempt. The coastal path & the local beaches were lovely for an afternoon walk before heading back for some well earned dinner & a glass of wine or two. We will be back for another break soon.
We had a really enjoyable holiday at New Carreg Las. The property was set in a nice location with shops and restaurants in walking distance. The property had been furnished to a very high standard and provided a nice retreat for a weekend away.
We loved this cottage so much I messaged Under the Thatch to ask if we could have first refusal if the owners ever sold it! Every detail has been well thought. Loved the knitted details around the house and the use of natural materials. We'll be back.
A lovely house in a brilliant location. We went to a total of 13 beaches each nicer than the last and they were all within a 45 minute drive. There is everything you need on the adjoining streets, there are multiple eateries from organic cafes to high quality restaurant. We will be back!
