About The Carthouse

The Carthouse is a favourite with couples and small families who love the high standard of accommodation and the tranquil location in the Ceredigion countryside. The one-bedroom dog-friendly cottage is on a 200-acre farm that has been in the same family for generations and is one of four beautiful holiday cottages at Bythynnod Pengwernydd in Pont-rhyd-y-groes village near Aberystwyth. Each property is entirely self-contained but can be booked with others to accommodate extended families or friends who want to holiday together without sacrificing their space and privacy. Beautiful views and an outdoor hot tub make The Carthouse perfect for a romantic escape in all seasons.

Whether you're a walker, surfer, love art and culture, or want your holiday to have a little of everything, you'll love staying at The Carthouse. It's an excellent choice for those who enjoy walking as there are lovely footpaths like the Pwllpeiran and Maenarthur Trails, the Devil's Bridge waterfalls, and around the Hafod Estate. The Cambrian Mountains are within easy reach, as is the Ceredigion Coastal Path. Mountain bikers can challenge their skills against the trails at Nant yr Arian, where you can also see the red kites. The River Ystwyth is close to the cottage, as is the narrow Miners Bridge spanning the Ystwyth Gorge. The landscape is spectacularly photogenic all year round, attracting keen nature photographers and artists.

Aberystwyth is a short drive from The Carthouse. It's a lively town with a Victorian pier and seafront promenade, a famous university, and rich Welsh heritage. It's great for a day at the beach, shopping and lunch, or a night out with live music and great food. Take the cliff railway to the top of Constitution Hill for panoramic views, enjoy a performance at the Aberystwyth Arts Centre or an exhibition at the National Library of Wales. Other local attractions include the National Trust house and gardens at Llanerchaeron, Strata Florida Abbey, Llywernog Silver Lead Mine, and The Magic of Life Butterfly House.

The Carthouse is dog-friendly and available for holiday bookings all year round.

Accommodation Comprises:

The Carthouse is child and dog-friendly with accommodation over two levels.

Ground Floor:

  • Glass doors fill the original entrance for the farm's cart, creating a lovely light-filled living and dining room. There is a sofa and armchair to seat three people, and a TV with a DVD player. Stairs lead to the upper level.
  • Fitted oak cupboards hold crockery, glasses, pots, pans and other cooking equipment in the galley kitchen. Original slate floors are a practical and stylish feature - it's hard to believe this was once a pigsty!
  • Family bathroom with a shower over the bath, WC and a handbasin.

First Floor:

  • Climb the hand-crafted oak staircase to the bedroom where there is an antique style brass and iron double and single bed. Both beds have beautiful bedding, including traditional Welsh blankets, to help ensure a restful night's sleep.

Outside: Guests of The Carthouse have a private patio with outdoor seating and a hot tub for two. There's also allocated parking.
