About The Old Cowshed

The Old Cowshed is a fantastic example of a beautiful cottage renovation, sleeping 6 people comfortably in this homage to the bucolic farm buildings of the area. Retaining many traditional features such as the warm wooden beams, slate floors and brick walls, this stunning property sits quietly within the coastal countryside, allowing for a tranquil, restful stay with your loved ones.

There are three bedrooms in this spacious property - the first is a ground-level twin room, while the upstairs master and second twin room sit under the beautiful wooden eaves of the upstairs, with views across green fields for miles around.

Each of the beautifully proportioned bedrooms comes with its own en-suite. Both the downstairs twin and the master suite have WCs, showers, and baths, while the second twin has a shower and WC - no need to fight for the bathroom in the morning!

The lounge area is cosy and inviting without compromising on space. Three comfortable sofas surround a large coffee table, all pointing towards the stunning log burner with a beautiful stone wall surround.

A fully equipped kitchen also houses the six-seater dining space and sits neatly beside the utility room - traditional slate floors combined with all the modern conveniences are a welcome combination at this contemporary rustic property.

To fully enjoy the maritime climate of Pembrokeshire, why not take dinner outside to the fantastic outdoor dining set, which sits neatly upon a patio and crushed slate shaded area, with a BBQ for summer nights.

This dog-friendly property has a large enclosed garden for children and pets to play, and the entire property is surrounded by open countryside and fresh sea air from the nearby coast.

Lovely property in a great location. Very well equipped kitchen and spotlessly clean. Unfortunately it has a complicated ground source heating system, not easy to use or fix when something goes wrong. This was faulty leading to inadequate heating and hot water throughout our stay
