customer reviews for Carreg Las

We really enjoyed our week in Carreg Las. The cottage is beautifully and thoughtfully restored . We came with our daughter and 2 grandchildren and they all loved the spacious garden and trampoline.. Newport is an interesting town and a great base for day trips to the beaches of Ceredigion or south to St David's. We hope to return in the not too distant future.. Cordelia and family. August 2021.

We liked the cottage very much - a lovely space in a great area with beautiful gardens too. The clever kitchen extension means that you can sit in a bright space even on rainy days and the bi-fold doors bring the garden into the house on sunny ones. Lovely! Beautifully clean and very well equipped. ~ Stella M

We returned to Carreg Las in April for our second visit. It is a beautiful and very comfortable house, a home from home. We started to relax when we arrived and put the key in the door. We were very lucky with the weather and enjoyed sitting on the suntrap of a terrace in the early evening with a glass of wine, mulling over our day's adventures. Joanne D

Beautiful cottage in lovely village setting close to sea. Just what we needed.

Tucked away in one of Newport’s quaint little streets, Carreg Las came up to all expectations. Welcoming, warm and comfortable with every detail thought of to create a real home room home. We spent many hours in the beautiful light and airy dining area and cosy evenings in front of the wood burner. With great independent shops and cafes and restaurants on the doorstep and the estuary, beach and coastal walks within easy reach, Carreg Las ticked all the boxes for a wonderful break in Pembrokeshire. We will definitely be returning.

Had an excellent week at Carreg Las. At last a proper holiday this year! The house is conveniently situated for restaurants pubs, and the local pizzeria serves takeaways. Within easy driving distance of dozens of lovely walks. The house has comfortable settees and lots of Welsh blankets, rugs and cushions. Very practical kitchen, loved the light and airy dining extension. In summer, the garden would be perfect for sitting out. So glad we fitted this in before Wales locked down again.

We stayed at Carreg Las for a week in September, it is a beautiful house. It is one of the best holidays that we have ever had with regards to both the house and the location. Carreg Las is beautifully restored with every convenience and ideally positioned for local shops, eating out, walking to the river, along the coastal path or down to the beach. Our favourite place is the glass extension on the back of the kitchen leading out onto the lovely terrace and garden, we spent most of our time there. We will return. Joanne and John

Ty hyfryd, cyfforddus mewl pentre bach sydd a llawer o ddewis o fwydydd. Wedi mwynhau cael bwyta gyda'n ffrindiau a'r drysau yn lled agored. We had a lovely stay in this comfortable and stylish house. Best bit for me was sipping g&t on the bench at the top of the garden as the evening set it. Friends came for lunch of fresh Sea Bass and welsh lamb, which we enjoyed with the doors fully open onto the terrace. Hoffwn ymweld unwaith eto, will surely stay here again.

We had a lovely stay at Carreg Las. All pleasing fabrics and textures - tastefully appointed, yet cosy and homely. Great log fires with plenty of firewood, a huge dining table in the gorgeous extension - perfect for family games, and a fantastic well equipped kitchen with everything you could possibly need although not much cooking done! Beautiful bedrooms with comfy beds - we all slept soundly. Great location too - perfect for setting off on a long walk around Dinas Head, taking in the cosy Old Sailors for a nourishing stop off. Back at the house - the welcoming Golden Lion and its array of craft ales, just down the road. Great pizzas also available a few minutes away, from the Canteen - worth a visit. Great all round - already planning a return trip!

This is our second visit to Carreg Las and it did not disappoint. What a wonderful home with such character and warmth. The surrounding area of Newport is a dream with many beaches in walking distance. We will be back again very soon. Thank you.

Carreg Las is a lovely holiday cottage- excellent location, comfortably and attractively decorated, with plenty of Welsh character. Well equipped kitchen and a lovely dining area. We had a great stay and would definitely come again.

I would recommend this cottage without hesitation! This was our 9th UTT holiday (I think) and Carreg Las is definitely the most beautiful cottage that we have stayed in so far. The trampoline was an instant hit with the kids and we enjoyed spending time in the house and the surrounding area. there is plenty to do nearby - great beaches, walks, cafes etc.We would love to come again.

What a beautiful space Careg Las is to spend a week. The house is just fabulous and hard to fault. The garden and conservatory are great places to eat and play and the interior so considered and inspiring. We loved the beautiful floor rugs from Solva woollen Mill and hot footed it there to buy one. The area is a favourite of ours; Newport has great shops and places to eat and is in easy travelling distance of some wonderful beaches, boat trips, surfing lessons and so on. One highlight was the walk to the atmospheric Carn Ingli mountain which gives the most fabulous views over the coast and countryside but our girls enjoyed crabbing by the boat club wall in Newport more than anything . We love UTT and have stayed in many UTT houses but this was one of the best.

We had a fantastic time at Carreg Las. The house is beautifully stylish, as well as practically laid out with all the amenities to make for an easy and comfortable stay.We were so taken with the Welsh blankets that we spent one day of our holiday seeking them out. This was our first holiday in Wales, and we loved Newport and the wider Pembrokeshire area. I cannot recommend Under the Thatch, Carreg Las and Pembrokeshire enough. An idyllic holiday!

Absolutely fantastic and far surpassed our expectations. A beautiful cottage in a perfect location. So many gorgeous details in the cottage and amazing places to explore on the doorstep. Felt like we only just got started with everything there is to do in the area and would love to come back again.

Fantastic cottage with great garden opened up through the big sliding doors from dining/ kitchen area.Everything you could want in a holiday home we all loved ever minute .Slight disappointment that no WI-FI was available but when weather is good like it was wi-Fi was not missed

We had a lovely stay at Carreg Las in Febuary. The house was a great size for 2 small families with opportunities for a different room to suit differing moods. The dining space was great for socialising and would be great in summer when you can open up the doors. A bit more local info would of been handy as well as what to do with bins!!!! Also, we got smoked out from the living room fire on a couple of occasions??? Apart from that I would defiantly recommend it, Newport is nice and great walks from the doorstep.

Great holiday, as always, with Under the Thatch. I have used UTT from the very early days and love the fact that using UTT gives a kind of 'style and quality guarantee' that the rental will be of a higher quality than the usual and that it will be well appointed and equipped. Carreg Las is a lovely, authentic rental and it felt a real home from home. Newport is a great place to stay, with plenty for us all to see and do.

This cottage was perfect! So stylish and so well equipped. So nice to have under floor heating, perfect location - near shops, pubs and beaches but quiet and private. I would love to stay again and bring more family with us to enjoy this fantastic home. I only wish I could stay x

Carreg Las is a lovely house, very tastefully modernised, comfortable and well equipped. We had a good birthday holiday here; the glass roofed dining area open to the garden was ideal for family meals.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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 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!
