Guest Book Comments

Perfect in every way. The kitchen was really well equipped, plenty of nice wine glasses, even champagne flutes. A good bed, slept really well, but it was very dark and very quiet too. The welcome basket was a lovely unexpected surprise. We could even sign into Netflix on the TV, very useful on the day it didn't stop raining.

Property Description

Tucked away from the other properties this striking Pembrokeshire barn conversion provides a charming sanctuary, 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 spacious layout. The property benefits from an open plan layout, cosy log burner, and warmed throughout by underfloor heating from the environmentally friendly ground source system. It has its own private walled garden, with raised lawn, and seating area so is an ideal bolt hole to escape.
  • Bi-fold doors lead to a paved patio, and a sun trap for enjoying the fabulous light that drew many of Pembrokeshire's fine artists.
  • Comfy sofas provide an area to relax, unwind and recharge those batteries as the wood burner crackles away in the corner.
  • The two bedrooms are spacious and luxurious, sumptuous bespoke headboards, provide a great way to start the day, sitting up in bed to plan your adventures.
  • St. Davids is a short distance away and provides an opportunity to explore the galleries and local shops, have coffee, cake and conversation or enjoy a slow-pace lunch at one of the many eateries - and then walk it all off on the way home.
  • This beautifully finished conversion adjoins other properties but its location is private and separated from the others with the benefit of its own walled garden.

About the Area

A perfect retreat for anyone looking for a get-away-from-it-all break. Slate floors, cosy furnishings and lovely wood burner all make this a great place to escape the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path

  • You can walk to the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, both east and west, starting at your doorstep. The cliffs are spectacular; the bird and wildlife is captivating; the sea and sky a constantly changing panorama. The Coast Path circles the Peninsula offering miles of breathtaking coastline, all within the easy reach.

Caerfai Beach and Whitesands Beach

  • Caerfai Beach is a short drive away - a family-friendly cove perfect for sandcastles and rock pooling. On the other side of the peninsula, Whitesands Beach is a surfer's paradise, at low tide the huge expanse of sand is great for football or cricket, games of chase or flying a kite.

St Davids

  • Just a mile away is Britain's smallest city but really only the size of a village, full of interesting shops, galleries, crafts and a choice of places to eat and drink. Enjoy delicious wholesome food at The Refectory served in the stunning Cathedral setting. Do try The Bench with its homemade ' Italian' ice cream. Oriel Y Parc Cafe offers breakfast and lunches with locally sourced produce and whilst there Oriel Y Parc Gallery is well worth a visit. Entry is free and featured works include those of Graham Sutherland, who bequeathed a body of his artwork to Pembrokeshire.

TYF St Davids

  • A choice of thrilling activities awaits you, canoeing, coasteering, sailing, surfing and lots more. Activity days available for visitors of all ages to enjoy. Why not revisit that childhood in the adventure playground of West Wales.

St Davids Golf Club

  • A test of concentration. The wonderful coastal views of Whitesands Bay and Ramsey Island are sure to tempt you from your game on this 9 hole links course.

Solva Harbour and coastal village

  • Solva is a real jewel of the west Wales coast. With its sheltered harbour it is an ideal place to sail, canoe or walk the beach or coast path. Afterwards you can relax and find refreshments while you visit the individual shops and galleries, pubs and restaurants that the village offers.

Solva Woollen Mill

  • One of 26 woollen mills in the county in 1900, this is now the oldest working woollen mill in continuous production in Pembrokeshire. As well as a colourful range of woollen goods, it produces carpets, stair runners and floor rugs and has supplied a wall hanging and a carpet to the Prince of Wales for his Welsh retreat in Myddfai.

Strumble Head

  • North Pembrokeshire has a dramatic and beautiful coastline. Sometimes wild and windy but always spectacular, Strumble Head is one of the best places in Britain to look out for passing pods of porpoises which surface in the tidal races just out beyond the point. Seals are often spotted in the sea below the lighthouse where a wartime lookout has been converted as a shelter for the public to use.

Fishguard and Goodwick

  • The town of Fishguard is an understated treasure and a busy community. Perched above the Lower town harbour with its boats and jumbled buildings, there are shops and banks, a cinema and sport centre as well as a number of places for the visitor to eat.

Picton Castle

  • Days out in Pembrokeshire should include a trip to Picton Castle. With some of the biggest and oldest trees in West Wales, a maze, a walled garden and a fernery and when you have exhausted yourself in the woodland walks, a cafe serving really tasty homemade food. Picton Castle is a real delight. It also now features a collection of birds of prey in the Owl Garden, so why not see some amazing birds in flight.

Tenby and South Pembrokeshire

  • Lots to see and do in Tenby at any time of the year, elegant boutiques, craft shops, museums and art galleries to browse, a large variety of eating places, pubs and ice cream parlours to tempt, boat trips, fishing, sailing, wind and kite surfing, spectacular cliff top walks and Blue Flag beaches to enjoy.

  • South Pembrokeshire also offers some breath-taking beaches such as Barafundle, Freshwater, Broadhaven, and the beautiful ponds at Bosherston.

Family Attractions

  • Families will be spoiled for choice. Pembrokeshire has more than its fair share of family fun including West Wales Karting, Dr Beynon's Bug Farm and Grub Kitchen, Hangar 5 Trampoline Park, Blue Lagoon Water Park, Folly Farm, Manor Wildlife Park, Heatherton Sports Park, Tenby's Tudor Merchants's House (N.T.), Carew Karting and more.

This super barn conversion on the Pembrokeshire coast is a stunning haven of tranquillity, beautifully appointed and a great place for couples to escape.
