Property Description

Porthclais View combines the stylish modern living of a chic barn conversion with a relaxed holiday ambiance for friends and family.

  • This beautiful conversion offers 3 boutique style bedrooms, a well equipped kitchen and a welcoming living space for a holiday whatever the occasion.

  • The Pembrokeshire Coast Path and the lovely sheltered harbour of Porthclais are just a few hundred yards from the front door of this beautifully finished Pembrokeshire barn.

  • Just one mile from St Davids and 500 yards from Porthclais, the barn is ideally placed for you to explore the treasures of Pembrokeshire with its rugged coastline, sandy beaches and varied wildlife.

  • Porthclais is a tiny inlet, superb for crabbing or launching kayaks to explore the rocky coastline and bays inaccessible from the land.

  • Enjoy the delights of a luxury and well-equipped kitchen with vaulted ceiling and open plan layout, fabulous for entertaining with its large farmhouse table, painted church pew and lime-washed chairs.

  • Sitting at the dining table to eat or perhaps play cards or plan holiday treats, your toes will be cosy in the warmth of under-floor heating.

  • Bi-fold doors lead to a paved patio with views towards the sea, and a sun trap for enjoying the fabulous light that drew many of Pembrokeshire's fine artists.

  • Comfy leather settee, sofa and armchairs provide an area to relax, unwind and recharge those batteries as the wood burner crackles away in the corner.

  • The three bedrooms, each with their own ensuite bathroom and large, sumptuous bespoke headboards, provide a great way to start the day, sitting up in bed to plan your adventures.

  • This beautifully finished conversion adjoins two other barns in a tranquil setting, next to the Farmhouse across the rear courtyard. The accommodation can all be rented together for larger parties, families or grand re-unions.

About the Area

Wonderful Coast Path Walks from your doorstep

  • Blow away the cobwebs with some stunning coastal walks right from your doorstep. Head left on the Coastal Path from Porthclais and it will take you round to St Non's Chapel and Holy Well which overlook the rocky coastline of St Bride's Bay - a most idyllic and spiritual part of Pembrokeshire and thought to be the birthplace of St David. Carfai Bay is a beautiful sandy cove a little further along and is good for swimming and snorkelling or just enjoying the sandy beach.
  • The St Davids Peninsula is encased in a section which will take your breath away - the colours of the sea and sky, the bird and wildlife, the fantastic flora - all combine to make an experience which draws visitors back year after year. 

St Davids Peninsula beaches 

  • The St Davids Peninsula is blessed with a range of beaches to suit every taste -Whitesands' wide sandy beach is great for surfing and sandcastles, kite flying, rock pooling and games of cricket; Caerfai has a steep walk down to a lovely south facing sandy beach, sheltered by the surrounding cliffs; Porthlisky beach is only accessible along the coast path and so is secluded and untroubled by the crowds; Caerbwdi is a stony beach with sand at low tide - the stone here was quarried to provide the purple stone of the cathedral.

 St.Davids, Britain's Smallest City

  • St Davids is the United Kingdom's smallest city, earning that status thanks to the magnificent medieval cathedral. Set in the valley below the town and placed to be out of sight of marauding viking invaders, it is a venue for services and concerts throughout the year and never fails to delight.
  • The stylish Oriel y Parc Gallery in St.Davids is the local Tourist Information Office run by the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. It houses the Graham Sutherland Collection and has a rotating exhibition by local Artists in Residence and also an independently run cafe offering delicious meals and snacks in convivial surroundings.
  • St.Davids has various interesting shops to browse, places to eat and galleries on offer or visit the weekly Farmers' Market on the Square and stock up with delicious local produce.

Solva Village, Pembrokeshire

  • Solva village with its quaint picturesque harbour and small beach has lots to enjoy - fish for crabs from the harbour at high tide or rock-pool and paddle on the beach at low tide or take a boat trip around the harbour.
  • There are two art galleries and a pottery to enjoy as well as a range of traditional shops including a post office/general stores (look out for the ever changing signs), cafes and pubs.
  • The Cambrian is a 16th century village pub serving great food. Along the harbour - homemade cakes and ice-cream can be found at Café '35' by the river. The Ship Inn, a pet friendly cosy local pub with pleasant garden, serves good food in a warm and convivial atmosphere.

Porthgain and Aberreiddy

  • A charming village with an attractive harbour. In the 18th and 19th centuries it was a flourishing seaport exporting slate and shale. Now it is a quaint harbour occupied with small fishing boats. Don't miss the opportunity to buy crab fresh off the boat when the fishermen return. Have dinner in- or outdoors the Sloop Inn, and enjoy some of the finest Fish and Chips at the Shed where locally caught crab and lobster is also served.
  • Walk along the coast path to the amazing Blue Lagoon at Abereiddy. A former slate quarry with unnaturally blue water. Look out for the seals. Simply exhilarating.

 Melin Tregwynt Woollen mill

  •  A beautiful whitewashed mill, to be found in a remote forested valley. Working since the 17th century, beautiful blankets, throws and cushions are made there in the traditional way. They have a beautiful range that can be seen adorning many boutique Hotels throughout the UK . 

Druidstone Hotel & Druidston Haven

  • Druidstone Hotel is a treasure not to be missed - tucked into the cliff at Druidston Haven and offering lovely food and a stunning view for the diner. Watch Nolton Stable's riders galloping across the sands from the delightful clifftop garden.

Golfing Breaks Pembrokeshire Wales

  • St Davids Golf Course is a spectacular 9-hole course on the headland overlooking Whitesands Beach – a real challenge! One of the best views in the UK whilst battling the elements.
  • Family owned Priskilly Forest Golf Course is a 20 minute drive away. Open all year to visitors of any ability, it is a 9 hole gem, set amongst mature oaks, sycamores and rhododendrons and with panoramic views from Strumble Head to the Preseli Mountains. All your golfing requirements - either for purchase or hire - are available at the golf shop. The Club House also serves excellent food and drink.

Outdoor Activities in North Pembrokeshire

  • At both Newgale and Whitesands surf hire and instruction is available at the beach. In St Davids, TYF Adventure offers a wide variety of activities and just down the road from Mathry, Preseli Venture offer instruction in sea kayaking and surfing. There is lots to choose from if you are looking for adventure!
  • West Wales is the home of Coasteering, and a great place to learn to kayak in the clear waters. Inland explore the Preseli Mountains - wonderful views, hill walking, cycling or driving. Visit the mysterious and beautiful Gwaun Valley - a timeless world with hanging deciduous woodlands. 
  • Many local breweries have started to open with bespoke hand crafted guest ales, so why not spend a few hours exploring to find your favourite tipple.
Newport and Narberth and Pembrokeshire towns
  • To the North also lies Newport, a beautiful little town with stunning beach. Further still is Cardigan with its wonderful Bay with pods of dolphins that are usually visible.
  • To the West is the town of Narberth famed for its boutique High Street and little restaurants and cafes. Further South lies the magic of South Pembrokeshire, with Tenby and some of the best beaches in the World.
