Property code: OC-PW9189

Enjoy a peaceful couple’s escape at this converted farm cottage. With panoramic sea views and welcoming one four-pawed pal, it’s perfect for walks to the beach and local pub. Neighbouring properties can be booked together for a bigger-group getaway.

One of four former farm cottages, this barn-style holiday home retains many of its original features yet offers a range of modern must-haves, including underfloor heating, an electric car charging point and high-spec sound system. Offering spacious accommodation for two, it impresses the moment you step through the entrance hall, with a striking living area in which stone flooring, whitewashed walls and exposed structural timbers create an atmosphere of calm. A contemporary kitchen takes care of all your self-catering requirements and there’s a separate shared utility room on-site for any laundry. Enjoy home-cooked meals in the dining area – the table seats eight, so there’s plenty of room if you want to invite guests – then stretch out in the lounge where there’s a choice of reclining sofas, a TV/DVD and top-of-the-range stereo system. A WC completes the ground floor. When it’s time to sleep, a sleek spiral staircase leads to a lovely double bedroom with a TV, skylight looking towards the Irish Sea, balcony overlooking the dining area and en-suite bathroom. The property sits within 13 acres and has a seating area offering gorgeous sea views. A lawned area with children’s play equipment is shared by all the cottages here.

Enjoy both the coast and countryside while you’re here – the property is on the outskirts of historic Trefin, a friendly village between Britain’s smallest city St David’s (8 miles), and Fishguard (10 miles). If you love walking, this is the perfect location: there’s a direct footpath to the low-tide sand and shingle of Aberfelin beach, where you can join the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. Gorgeous Porthgain (2 miles) has eateries and art galleries; there’s an equally picturesque cove and village at Abercastle, a mile in the opposite direction.

Lovely, cosy, converted barn in West Wales. Great local walks, from the doorstep, along the coastal path, with stunning views. The property is well equipped with kitchen utensils, clean and inviting. Hosts were brilliant, contacting us prior to arrival to check requirements for travel cot & high chair (available for infants); providing a 'welcomeRead more pack of treats and information, and also checking and fixing the boiler immediately, when we unfortunately lost hot water. Perfect for a relaxing getaway and exploring Pembrokeshire. Thank you Hide

Rural cottages for a quiet break, 20 minutes walk ( Hill both ways) to nice pub serving food and dog friendly, otherwise car travel required as nothing else local.

Although the inside of the property was dog-friendly, there was no enclosed garden, meaning we had to have our dog on a leash at all times.

The owners went the extra mile on everything and were on hand if needed (but were not at all intrusive). The property was excellent. We had a Powell's property in Saundersfoot earlier this year which was very basic (a bit stingy in fact) compared to The Barn. We had towels provided at the Barn and a change of towels and linen after the first week, Read moreplus a lovely welcome pack. Total quality throughout. Loved The Barn. Hide
