about the property

Priced for up to 2 staying, sleeps 4. A traditional Carmarthenshire family holiday cottage in a wonderful private ‘dell’ – this Welsh holiday cottage is loved by all who stay there – great green credentials too!

A simple, traditional West Wales cottage renovated with sustainability in mind, Nant-y-Bargoed enjoys a peaceful position on a dead-end lane in a quiet and secluded wooded valley. The lovely countryside is all about you with easy access to the beaches on the coast.

A stream runs to the front, and there is good country walking from the door: a very dog-friendly cottage. The interior is comfortable, perhaps a little more basic than some, but with under-floor heating via a biomass boiler, a very efficient wood burner, and an open fire. The kitchen is small, but adequate, and you're walking distance from the 'Lamb of Rhos' pub that is well known for a warm welcome and good food. Only 15 minutes from Newcastle Emlyn town with castle, antiques and takeaways, or a little less to Llandysul.

customer reviews for Nant y Bargoed

The cottage is a beautiful, quiet place lying in a valley with a little creek directly in front of the house. The interior is chosen with a great attention to detail so that we felt at home at an instant. There is everything needed available to feel cozy and comfortable (dishwasher, floor heating, big DVD- and book collection, comfortable beds, oven and fireplace). We had a wonderful time and will be glad to come again.

- Chris D,

Very isolated physically and electronically which was part of the appeal. Very nicely decorated and furnished and it was clean and welcoming. One point, a wall mount to enable guests to shower would be a simple but much appreciated addition. We really enjoyed our stay and would happily recommend this lovely cottage to others.

- David tobin ,

What a beautiful home in a tranquil spot. I felt far away from all stresses and strains and able to relax properly and deeply. So much to see and do in the area, and a welcoming and cosy home to come back to. It was so lovely to hear the trickling stream and to have a chilly dip in the pool. Thank you for making the house such a special place to be. I do hope to be back soon.

- Mr fergus collins ,

Gorgeous little cottage in a lovely, lush, green little valley, such a peaceful location. Our dog enjoyed our short break just as much as we did. Plenty of visit within easy reach, didn't miss TV and WiFi a bit. Loads of DVDs, books and board games in case of rainy days. Would love to visit here again but perhaps for longer next time. Thank you for an amazing break.

- Sally edmunds ,

A fabulous house in a beautiful location. We loved it here. The house is lovely, stylish and unpretentious in a country house/shabby chic way. The double bed was comfortable; out the front was the view of a steep, wooded valley; we saw bats and loved waking up to the sound of the stream. The lack of wi-fi wasn't a problem for us. The house was cosy and had pretty much what we needed. The 3 steep hair-pin bends to get there took some getting used to but we managed in a small car.(Toyota Aygo). If you are over 6 foot, you'll need to pay attention upstairs as some of the doorways and beams were made for the smaller people of yesteryear. Great location for the coast.

- Sandy M,

We loved this beautiful cottage, well taken care of and in good condition. Everything was working perfect except for the last day there was no hot water for a shower. The only complaint that we may have is the late check in on arrival together with the early check out. We appreciated the cottage very much!

- Kenneth S, Laren nh (Netherlands),

Wonderful old cottage in a stunning location!

- Josephine P,

Fabulous cottage. Nice and cosy. Enjoyed exploring the local area with our two Westies. Diolch yn fawr, Owen a Catrin.

- A l jones ,

Absolutely lovely holiday at this gorgeous cottage. The library of books really is impressive with every taste catered for. The DVD library was also very impressive. Under floor heating was brilliant a first for me. Woodfires, warm welcome, and very dog friendly. It was a bit cold for the baptism pool, but there were many walks o the beaches. We loved our stay at Nant Y Bargoed.

- Lisa R,

We had a relaxing time in this beautiful cottage in a quiet valley. We enjoyed exploring the local area and had lots of cold water swimming opportunities in the stream and the sea. We felt well looked after by neighbours maintaining the valley and boiler!

- Vicky H,

Beautiful, restful and peaceful stay at the cottage. Such a stunning location to spend a few days with the family. The cottage is full of character and charm and we loved watching the bats head out for the evening. We would happily book again.

- Rebekah S,

Enchanting cottage in magical surroundings. Very dog friendly, Quirky local towns of Newcastle Emlyn and Cardigan well worth a visit and Brechfa Forest is a must for dog walks.

- Mandy W,

Lovely spot in a valley which felt like you were in your own world. Cottage was rustic but well equipped. Only slight issue was the pull out bed - ok for kids but not really appropriate for an adult. Good spot for both rural & costal places. Overall a great place to stay.

- Ken flude ,

The cottage was everything I expected and more. Wi-Fi and phone off for the duration, no TV but radio kept us in touch with some element of reality! I especially loved the outdoors, the stream and baptismal pond, the history of the place all fascinating. Not far to lovely beeches with long stretches of sand. The Welsh weather was very kind to us too. My only regret is that I couldn’t stay longer, though the short break has been enough to recharge my batteries! Thanks to host’s for making a sharing this special place.

- Jayne B,

We had a lovely stay at Nant y Bargoed. Despite the drizzle we fitted in a couple of long walks from the doorstep, returning to the constantly cosy cottage, with it's heavenly underfloor heating (plus woodburner and open fire!) We'd love to return in summer to enjoy the beautiful stream and pretty 'bathing' area.

- Lynne H,

We loved our stay at this beautiful cottage over Christmas, the location is stunning, the owners have kept the character of the original cottage by sympathetically furnishing it throughout as too many try too hard for the ‘boutique’ look and tragically lose all personality. The cottage was spotless so thankyou to Sue the housekeeper, the beds were comfy, lovely linens too. We enjoyed the dark skies, sound of the river and friendly neighbour who stopped by to check all was well. Highly recommended, don’t change anything, thank you for sharing your lovely home.

- Suzanne D,

We could not fault this cottage. It is lovely and cosy and has a 'lived in' feel to it. The location was fantastic, nestled in a valley and not overlooked by anyone. It was great not to have any internet/TV for 5 days (and it wasn't missed). For anyone wanting access to their phones it only means going to the main road or top of the lane. There was everything we needed at the cottage and I would be recommending this accommodation to anyone who wants to visit this part of the world and enjoy a tranquil, stress free holiday. Our only complaint was we had to go home.

- Melanie B,

We just returned from a fantastic holiday in Nant y Bargoed! The cottage itself is extremely peaceful and beautifully decorated. There is lots to do in the surrounding areas, and we had a lovely time exploring during the day and retreating to the cottage in the evenings to read and watch DVDs. Highly recommend.

- Rhiannon M,

Lovely peaceful stay in a very cosy cottage. Would recommend for anyone who wants to get away from it all. The information provided about the surrounding area was really helpful but there was plenty to do in the cottage if you wanted to stay put. Would love to stay again.

- Jennifer H,

We had a lovely stay at the cottage despite all the rain. Cottage had everything we needed, and it was great to have no WiFi or signal for a few days. It was great to have a dog friendly home too. Thanks

- Alexandra N,

We had a wonderfully peaceful holiday. The house and surroundings were delightful.

- Sarah H,

Idyllic time at Nant Y Bargoed the cottage is so pretty roses and honeysuckle around the door like something from a painting I expected Beatrix Potter to stroll across the garden. We totally relaxed the setting so peaceful the sound of the stream and bird song is sublime. Beds sofa and chairs comfy lovely to forget about wifi internet TV just lovely. Very dog friendly garden -enclosed, dog crate and bed much appreciated by two very tired but happy labs. Friendly neighbours. We hope to return. Thank You for letting having a taste of this lovely house.

- Trudy D,

Beautiful tranquil valley location with lovely walks from the door

- Rhys E,

Beautiful cottage and we so enjoyed our stay. But be warned: there is no wi-fi, and unlike other similar UTT cottages we had absolutely no 3G or 4G on the various networks we would usually access. Be aware that you will be completely cut off whilst you are in the cottage (be that a good thing or a bad thing)!

- Rebecca R,

Thanks for a lovely weekend at Nant Y Bargoed, now our 6th UTT holiday. The house was perfect and we had a very peaceful weekend. The dogs loved the stream and visiting Aberporth and Poppit Sands beaches. The DVD collection was great. We would definitely recommend visiting and will be back to stay. It was lovely being 'off grid', we left feeling relaxed and refreshed.

- Gerwyn E,

Lovely cottage full of character. Great for short break. Didn’t make use of log burner as it is very warm and cosy with under floor heating. Nice situation and good walks had. Only things that could be better: Bed quite soft; kitchen window needs to be open when cooking as no fan and steams up quickly.

- Clare L,

This is an absolutely stunning little cottage in a quiet valley. My children have been begging to go back ever since! The things we loved the most were: the beautiful antiques and quirky decor - felt so personal and authentic compared with many holiday homes, and the stream in the garden. Beautiful clear water which we could paddle in. The soothing sound of the water also meant that we all slept very well every night - best sleep I've had in ages. This was also helped no doubt by the lack of wifi and phone signal - a proper break from the outside world and everyday life. The house was also a great base to explore this part of Wales. We roved all over the place - beaches, woods and waterfalls.

- Naomi W,

All great, peace and quiet and tranquility!

- Dylan rowlands ,

A magical location and setting for a Beatrix Potter esq cottage which has been loving restored and has all the comforts you rarely find in a holiday let. We had a special time despite the rain, our youngest organised tours of the stream and we explored the wonderful beaches and countryside. Thank you it was the prefect post lockdown get-away

- Lynne P,

An absolutely delightful cottage, with beautiful scenery surrounding you. The cottage was cosy and had everything you could want for a peaceful time away from a big city. Excellent walks and beaches locally, you couldn’t ask for more. Highly recommended and will must certainly be booking here again.

- Paul O,

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful cosy weaver’s cottage. We even had a dip in the (very cold) stream followed by a lovely hot bath and underfloor heating. Everything we needed was provided. We all enjoyed having a fire and watching dvds in the evenings. It was a really peaceful and relaxing family break. We would love to come again.

- Caroline B,

A peaceful couple of days spent in a lovely cottage. Wonderful underfloor heating made the place very cosy (not quite cold enough to light woodburner or fire yet). Lots of information provided on local area, the neighbours and house history.

- Sarah vine ,

We had very pleasant week at Nant Y Bargoed, it was a wonderful location in which to rest, relax and rewind. There are plenty of local amenities and attractions within easy reach (towns, coast, etc) but it was always nice to return to our bolthole.

- Frank N,

We absolutely loved this cottage! Such a quaint and cosy place! We especially enjoyed the quiet and peacefulness . It’s so nice to be able to take our two dogs away with us and stay in such a wonderful place. You should try it!!

- Gillian P,

Nant -Y-bargoed is a true gem, we loved every moment and wish we could have stayed longer! Our doggies loved the stream and the collection of dvds and books in the cottage were so good! It was so nice feeling cut off from the world for awhile, we left feeling refreshed and very sad to go home.

- Daniella J,

This is our third stay in this particular UTT property. We have stayed in many UTT properties over the years, but find we come back to this one. The peace, quiet and freedom from technology is heavenly. The location is fantastic with a lot of great coastal walks and places to visit. We will be back again soon when we once again need to recharge. Thank you for another great UTT stay.

- J a walker ,

Lovely cottage - very cosy with homely decorations and a huge pile of books and dvds. Evenings off grid reading were so restful - the stream at the bottom of the garden is gorgeous to wake to the sound of. We’d thoroughly recommend this cottage if you’re looking to rest and recharge batteries. Very very comfy bed!

- Susan H,

After a busy year, this was our first holiday! What utter bliss it was - a pretty, comfortable and cosy cottage. The setting was perfect - the stars were so bright each evening to gaze at and then awake to the sound of the stream opposite. We have had the most relaxing time idling the days in quiet and countryside, it was just what we needed! Our dog dude appreciated the daily walks at nearby beaches and dips in the stream.

- Hollie V,

A lovely house in a lovely secluded setting. Very peaceful and nice walking straight from the door. It’s a shame that the local pub was closed during our visit but we did drive to Llangrannog and had a lovely meal at The Ship inn. Would recommend this cottage for those wanting to chill and read and enjoy the seclusion.

- Claire fraser ,

We have rarely stayed in such a dog friendly property on our travels. In fact we all immediately felt at home. Well equipped property with enough books and DVDs to keep you occupied even if the weather is bad. The owners have done a fantastic job of ensuring you have a really relaxed stay. No wi-fi? No mobile signal? Absolute bliss!! Now we are home, we cannot wait to return to this oasis away from the world.

- Samantha H,

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautifully restored cottage. It’s quiet, relaxing and a lovely place to just ‘be’. It’s the most dog-friendly cottage I’ve ever stayed in, with a bed and a crate provided. The area is beautiful too, but it is necessary to drive to get to the nicest places nearby. One small improvement would be a proper shower, although I did enjoy the bath tub

- Emma cooke ,

We had a perfect week at Nant-y-Bargoed. Long walks without a soul to be seen. Sunny afternoons reading books in the sunshine, glass of wine to hand. Night time star gazing. And even an adventurous cross-county run in the rain. Above all, slept like a baby. We shall visit again soon.

- Greg finney ,

A very special place indeed. A lovely cottage, which was lovely and clean on arrival, in the most idyllic setting. This really is the place to go if you want to get away from it all.

- Kate L,

What a hidden gem! Situated well away from any roads, the quiet location is perfect! No internet or tv means a totally relaxing holiday, walking, reading, playing games, and listening to music. Only half an hour to the nearest beach for the dogs, and other gorgeous little villages, such as Aberport and New Quay. We will definitely be back!!

- Kellie rae ,

Beautiful cottage and secluded location. Recommended.

- Honora W,

Our stay at the Nant-y-Bargoed cottage was everything we'd hoped for, even if the snow threatened to jeopardise the trip. We made it and soaked up the warmth of the under-floor heating and the beautifully warm bedroom and bathroom.The snow was still lying on the grass opposite reminding us it was very cold outside but we just lit the fire, managed to find Classic FM on the radio, played games from the big chest, read and just totally relaxed. It was a soothing break away, if you ignored the builders' vans whipping by on their way up the hill! but what a beautiful setting to be based in. We loved the drifts of snowdrops in the wood above the stream and the daffodils in the garden, and wow! the stars at night were breathtaking. We'd love to go back there - perhaps later on in the season when the trees are in foliage and more wildlife to be seen, although we did enjoy the overhead circling of four buzzards one morning and the visiting wren. Lovely memories..

- Atkinson ,

Nant Y Bargoed is a wonderful cottage in all respects, warm, cosy well appointed with fun and interesting things new and old and even filled with games and books to fill the time on rainy days, we loved it in every way and couldn't recommend it more highly and will certainly want to return - thank you!

- Leyton R,

We have just got back from a lovely few days in the cottage, it is very cosy, quiet. We enjoyed walks from the cottage and ventured further afield to the Pembrokeshire coast with the dogs. It is a great place to have a complete break from the rat race!

- Caroline R,

We loved staying here! The cottage is in a very quiet spot, with the sound of the stream a constant and relaxing background. Everything was well equipped and comfortable with exceptionally hot water and cosy heating. We would have very much liked to stay longer.

- Caroline S,

cosy quiet cottage within easy driving distance of the costal path and beaches suitable for pets

- Kate W,

We had a lovely holiday at nant-y-bargoed. The cottage was so comfortable and it was amazing not having internet or phone signal. The surroundings of the cottage were lovely and had many enjoyable walks around the area of the property. Great family get-away!!! If you would like your kids to get off their computers and spend time with you then this is the place, we had many great games of hide and seek!! We would definitely come back.

- James W,

Had a brilliant stay at Nant Y Bargoed- the cottage was very pretty in a wonderful location with plenty of places to visit nearby. The cottage has been very sensitively restored and it was cosy and well equipped- so much so I was happy to have some rain in order to spend a little more time in the house. It was a great place to return to in the evening - not sure who loved the open fire and underfloor heating the most - me or the dogs. Congratulations to the owners on their wonderful restoration and thank you for sharing

- Sheena M,

If a secluded, getting away from it all holiday is what you are after.... this is your place! The location is lovely, so peaceful apart from the odd passing tractor. The actual cottage was lovely. Full of lots of things to look at, games to play, DVDs to watch and books to read. We found the nature and wildlife books brilliant for learning more about what was around the cottage. The kitchen is fully equipped for your cooking needs with a lovely big table in the dining room for the family to sit around and eat together. Recycling is very important here, which is great. I would certainly recommend this cottage to anyone needing a break from technology and the hustle and bustle of the modern world. The pub is a short walk away, but take a torch. The landlord is friendly and the food was outstanding. Perfect for a hungry walker after lots of fresh country air.

- Katy B,

This was our 4th under the thatch break and as with the others it did not disappoint. In fact this cottage was the best yet. Cosy warm and just what the doctor ordered for our relaxing new year break with lovely local walks and beaches near by. We look forward to booking our next holiday soon.

- Chris dadd ,

Tranquil and beautiful cottage. Rustic yet comfortable and packed with lots of home comforts. Look forward to returning

- Chris I,

Great cottage, fab location, completely dog friendly, friendly helpful owner and nice neighbours. We had the best time just sitting on the front seat, listening to the stream, enjoying the wooded valley and peace. wonderful walks, great to have spring water on tap, would love to go back...soon!

- Joanne P,

Had a fantastic and deeply restorative few days at Nant-y-Bargoed with my daughter, taking time out to drop off radar and catch up with some songwriting. The dogs were in heaven with the stream...the walks from the cottage door were bliss. Beautifully styled and equipped, the cottage was warm, homely and very welcoming. Friendly and helpful neighbour too! We will be back for a much longer break next time!

- Tracey N,

Nant-y-Bargoed is a wonderful cottage in a wooded, secluded, and very peaceful valley. It is beautifully decorated, well equipped and comfortable, and has a welcoming feel to it. No internet or tv reception means that you can lose yourself in the eclectic collection of books at the cottage, or watch the fabulous Merlin dvd. Our favourite day out was along the Teifi valley towards the Black Mountains, with lunch at Wrights Food Emporium, and a walk at Carreg Cennen Castle. A very lovely and relaxing place to stay.

- Nick B,

We stayed here at the beginning of July for 10 days, my husband, me and our 2 dogs. Well from the moment we walked it in it was perfect, the feeling of the place, the decor I absolutely loved, just the general set up was lovely. The garden is totally enclosed and is fenced off into two separate a courtyard with chippings and then a much larger area with grass and a picnic bench (if you had an escapologist dog the grassy one is enclosed by bushes and trees). Plenty of DVDs to choose from and a varied selection, some games (we played cribbage each night after "date night with a film", and loads of books to read. There is a telephone for incoming and outgoing calls (honesty box) but other than that no gadgetry and it was bliss! Saw dolphins while sat having lunch at Newquay, and had an amazing afternoon at Bwlch y nant Arian watching well over 100 red kites at feeding time (3pm summer 2pm winter) and then a lovely flat walk around the lake....disabled facilities excellent! Poppitt Sands, Angle (near Pembroke) and Coppett Hall (near Saundersfoot) beaches all had parking right by the beach, wonderful food at the little cafes (the Angle one is sister cafe to award winning cafe at Lawrenny) and loos and all dog friendly! We had a fantastic holiday in a fantastic cottage in a fantastic area, thank you

- Shan L,

Excellent time had by all, the dogs loved the variety of the sea/beach/pembrokeshire coastal walk , combined with beautiful countryside. The tranquility of the cottage added the final touch , away from the modern world , peace away from internet and TV

- Dave C,

We are just back from a very, very happy stay at Nant-y-Bargoed. The cottage is so sweet and comfortable in an amazingly peaceful location. It is so peaceful and the owners have out some really thoughtful touches in the cottage such as a large dog basket in case you forget your four legged friends' bed. Heads up that there is no phone, Internet or tv signal. There is some discussion in the visitors book about spots you can one or two bars of phone signal but my top tip is don't bother! Embrace being cut off the world and enjoy the birds and the streams and each other. We played a lot of Yahtzee for the games chest! There is loads to do in the area - Caws Cenarth would be my top recommendation - or you can just read but the fire. It's a cottage that will draw you in and make you feel immediately at home.

- Marina N,

A really special place to stay, with a stream running outside the door and a beautiful walk up a long quiet lane right outside the front door. Lots of beaches within a reasonable drive (not on the doorstep but not too far away). The approach felt a little unpromising as the closest village hasn't got much going for it, but as soon as you drive down to the cottage you enter a lovely rural setting. We are definitely going to return.

- R F,

We had a wonderful time at the cottage which is beautifully decorated and very comfortable - plenty of hot water and toasty under-floor heating. Perfect for family gatherings and r&r, I hope to return again with other members of my family.

- Caroline R,

We arrived at this lovely cottage and it was just as we had hoped. Secluded and peaceful the accommodation was beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here we only wish it could have been longer.

- Peter wassell ,

This is a lovely, quiet and very well equipped cottage, comfy bed and the dogs loved the underfloor heating and wood-burner. Great location, near to beautiful beaches and woodland walks for days out, also Newcastle Emlyn has great little shops. As with the other UTT cottages we have stayed in, unique and dog friendly

- Rachael A,

A beautiful location for our Welsh retreat, cosy and away from the hubbub of the world. You need a car to explore the beaches and get supplies but well worth the trip.

- Juliet C,

Lovely location off the beaten track - conveniently for a number of towns, beaches &c. Lovely accommodation - clean, comfortable and quaint. Great value.

- Dave benfield ,

We had a wonderful time on our UTT holiday. Nant Y Bargoed was completely relaxing and we were mesmerised with every inch of the cottage with all its gorgeous quirks. Thanks UTT for providing dog friendly holiday rentals with a touch of something special... There really is a lack of this kind of holiday home on the holiday rental market and I think it's a real shame. Thanks once more, Laura and Jim

- Laura E,

“Nant-y-Bargoed provided the most magical setting for an unbelievably romantic first trip away together. The secluded cottage is cozy, warm, beautifully decorated and luxurious, while still retaining a rustic country charm. The sounds of the stream running in front of the cottage provide a backdrop for the best night’s sleep. Memories of evenings spent cooking together in the well-stocked kitchen, and reading in front of the fire, will stay with us for a while to come. Already daydreaming of a return trip.” Jess & Tom, Aug 2015

- Tom P,

Nant-y-Bargoed is a perfect retreat in a magical, peaceful setting. The cottage is cosy and charming and sits in a very quiet valley, although it is within easy reach of the main road. The beaches, which are a short drive away, are spectacular and there are many opportunities for walking nearby.

- Angela boyce ,

Great cottage with loads of character. Very peaceful location though you do get the odd car driving past. We just used the main bedroom which has a very comfortable bed. The cottage was warm with lots of hot water and underfloor heating downstairs. We found little of interest in the immediate vicinity but maybe that was down to our lack of planning.

- Anthony B,

Nang-Y-Bargoed is a very sweet, well appointed cottage opposite a stream. The house is stocked with everything you would need (detergent, board games, DVDs, kitchen utensils) and it is truly charming.

- Kristen S, York (United States),

We had a great time at Nant y Bargoed, the cottage is in a lovely peaceful location and the sound of the stream outside is idyllic. Our dog Alfie loved playing in the garden and getting cosy by the fire at night. The local beaches poppit sands and Aberporth are lovely little sun traps and also dog friendly but to be honest the best place to be is in the garden with the bbq going and a glass of wine.

- Gemma francis ,

We had a very cosy mid-winter getaway in this romantic cottage. The seclusion and beauty of the location combine to make you feel that 'real life' is a million miles away. We highly recommend this cottage.

- Kerry anne M,

Picture do NOT do justice! This is an amazing cottage in a fantastic location. We have stayed in a few different cottages and this is by far one of the best. Everything was set nicely when we got to the cottage, the underfloor heating was lovely for cold morning and the sound of the stream/birds in front of the cottage was so peaceful. Thank you for our stay! xxx

- Ali Y,

Booked this for my parents anniversary, they had an amazing time and have let me know they would love to come back again!

- Matthew R,

If you are looking for a quiet break surrounded by nature then this is the place to be ! Very nice, clean, cosy cottage with open wood fire.. Dogs love walking the hills and beautiful stream... Really enjoyed ourselves and will definitely return.

- Thuy P,

"This place is the definition of 'cosy'! Loved the wood-burner and the choice of furniture and colours" ~ Milner family


"We've really loved staying here, the cottage is well equiped, with cosy bed. The cottage feels away from it all, but not remote" ~ Ian and Jackie


"Thank you for a wonderful break. The cottage is a slice of luxury in a tranquil valley. We want to stay another week" ~ Martin and Valerie
