The Quiet RoomAbout Us

Roger and Mary moved to this beautiful old house after a decision to leave our jobs and create a living space that is unhurried and calm. We like the ‘Slow movement’ started in Italy, which is trying to preserve everything that is good about a relaxed life, good food, community and hospitality. We intend to emulate this at Cartref.

"We are enslaved by speed and have all succumbed to the same insidious virus: Fast Life, which disrupts our habits, invades the privacy of our homes, and forces us to eat Fast Foods"

Carlo Petrini -





This lovely old house is an 18th Century Town House. It retains recently refurbished original features including some lovely carved, Welsh Slate Fireplaces with magnificent cast iron inserts.


HallwayWe have recently finished a major refurbishment to add ensuites and update the bedrooms and public areas and have been awarded 4 star rating with a 5 star rating for breakfast, bathrooms and other aspects of our house. We have decorated its rooms to retain a Georgian influence, while making it modern and comfortable.

We like people (of all ages and all sorts), beautiful surroundings, each other and our cat ‘Wanted’, so we wanted to make Cartref a beautiful place that guests will also like. Wanted: The Manages

Roger has been a General Manager in hotels all over the world and speaks German and French. Mary was and Adult Education lecturer and now writes. She loves cooking and is learning to speak Spanish and Welsh.

Wanted, our managing director, just likes eating and sleeping!
