We've stayed at Carwarden in 1996, 1997, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008! The number of repeat visits speak for themselves. We love the place (especially the owner's fantastic hospitality including monumental breakfasts and a truly convivial atmosphere) and would happily and confidently recommend it to anyone. We will be back!
