She is notable for being the first woman ever to win the Crown at the National Eisteddfod of Wales. This she achieved in 1953 at Rhyl. Her story "The Foolish Maid" appears in English translation in the collection My Heart on My Sleeve (Honno Welsh Women's Press, Aberystwyth, 2013), which remains in print.
Cadwaladr lived on Bardsey Island for several years in the 1940s, as a farmer and the schoolteacher to the island's children. She had a close relationship with the elderly poet Dewi Emrys (1881–1952).
