“Happy memories”
Reviewed 4 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

If you are in any doubt about choosing your next holiday let for a get together with extended friends or family - then please don't be. Go and stay at Cartrefli in Tresaith and re-book year on year. Seriously can't rate this highly enough. Equipped with staggeringly good array of children and beach kit. Great walks from the doorstep, if you dare venture far from the beach which is just beautiful. There's a terrific pub a stone's throw away which stocks a good menu, is very welcoming and has a really decent pint of SA (that's a fab Brains brewery ale btw...!). We spent hours gazing out to sea, falling in the sea, wondering why we all didn't live by the sea and had to tear ourselves away. Owners have done a top job at creating a welcoming holiday home for everyone else to enjoy and make their own special memories. That might sound naff - but I'm hooked.

“Catrefle is a magical place”
Reviewed 21 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We've recently returned from a long weekend at Catrefle. We were a large group with young kids. The house is wonderful. It is spacious yet cosy and equipped with everything you could possibly need. Catrefle is beautifully furnished with amazing views. The proximity to the beach is great. It made nipping back and for to the beach 20 times a day with small kids possible. Even though Tresaith is only it couple of hours away from home it felt like a world away. We can't wait to go back.

Thank you for your lovely review. I think nipping back to the house 20 times a day is essential with small kids too. Glad you enjoyed your break!

“Amazing house, equipped with everything, wonderful views, incredible sunsets, dolphins, walking distance to pub & beach.”
Reviewed 10 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

After a weekend break with friends at Cartrefle earlier in the year, I fell in love with the place and immediately booked a week with family and friends for August. It was a huge hit with all.
After driving down in pouring rain, we arrived in Tresaith to sunshine, followed by the most beautiful sunset, a couple of dolphins swimming across the bay and a Tesco delivery which saved us wasting precious holiday time in a supermarket. There was no squabbling over rooms as 5 out of 6 of them enjoy a sea view, so everyone can drift off and wake up to the gentle lapping of the waves on the shore.
The kids barely came out of the water/ off the beach, enjoying the use of the wetsuits, body boards, kayaks, buckets and spades that Jo leaves for guests to use. The outside shower to rinse off the sand and get warm is brilliant. There's also an extra fridge/ freezer in the outhouse and a washing machine that I wanted to take home with me! Far better than mine. The house really does have everything! A rare find, the kitchen in a house for 12 has pans big enough for you to cook for 12, great knives and everything you're likely to need. Jo has thought of everything. When we weren't on the beach, we spent most of our time in the kitchen, round the island, table, or on the window seat, window open chatting to the people outside on the amazing outside table (it has 2 hidden chillers for wine/beer/juice). I look forward to a winter break there to enjoy the living room with the wood burning stove, board games and great CD and DVD collection. Despite a reasonable amount of rain for August, we spent most of our time on the beach this trip, and I would love to head back in cooler weather to enjoy the rest this house has to offer.

Liked best: The window seat with incredible views and the sash window which means you can warm up after a dip and then chat to the people still sitting outside on the big table outside the kitchen.
Liked least: Leaving.
