customer reviews for Carreg Las

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!
