About the property

Convenient location, king bedroom, pet-friendly, own garden, snug with sofa bed

Stylish barn conversion conveniently located in rural mid-Pembrokeshire (South West Wales).

Within easy reach of numerous stunning beaches, the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, the wild North coast, St David’s Cathedral, the Preseli hills and the beautiful Gwaun valley.

Situated in Brimaston, a small, out-of-the-way hamlet, Ty Lloi offers generous accommodation for discerning couples who enjoy walking, cycling, exploring, sightseeing or just chilling out in front of the wood-burner.

Ideal for foodies – until recently the owners ran a well-regarded local restaurant – there is the option of a part-catered stay in the shape of tasty evening meals, free-range eggs, fresh baked bread, home-made chutneys, jams and marmalade.

Approached through its own gateway and beautifully landscaped courtyard area, you are greeted by a light and airy double height entrance hallway with the sitting room, including wood-burner, HD TV and Bose sound system tucked away to your right and beautifully crafted beech wood stairs to your left leading up to the well-appointed, bespoke kitchen which in turn is linked to a cosy snug by a striking, glass lined walkway.

The large, comfortably furnished bedroom, complete with a king-size bed, is on the ground floor with a door leading to the sunny and secluded private back garden. Just off the bedroom is a bathroom with walk-in shower - towels provided.

The barn is heavily insulated and designed to maximise passive solar gain. There are solid oak floors throughout, water is solar heated (with an immersion as back-up) and as a supplement to the wood-burner every room has a slimline, neo-digital electric panel heater. Wi-fi is included, as is a Bose sound system and a basket full of wood for the wood-burner. Larder essentials such as coffee, tea, milk and olive oil are provided.

About Jon Bray & Karen Hearn

A pair of food loving, dog loving, outdoor living, Pembrokeshire lovers. We moved here from London in 2002 and have never regretted it for a moment. Living in Pembrokeshire means for us walks on the beach, exploring the countryside, living more sustainably, harvesting our own fruit and veg, looking after our animals (currently 6 chickens, 2 geese and a chocolate lab) and generally enjoying a slower pace of life. We have planted up 6 acres of native broadleaf woodland and find it extremely satisfying when birds migrating all the way from Africa see fit to nest in our little patch.

Jon Bray & Karen Hearn purchased this barn in 2002

Why Jon Bray & Karen Hearn chose St Brides Bay, St Davids & The West Coast

We fell in love the moment we drove in through the gate. Far enough off the beaten track, yet with good neighbours and located centrally in Pembrokeshire so that everything the county offers – beaches, cliffs, woods, hills, rivers and valleys – is within easy reach. We’ve spent over ten years slowly renovating our house, the Grange – Ty Lloi (The Calf House) was completed far quicker although still in a manner true to our ideals, using local craftsmen and an architect who shared our vision of preserving the original nature of the building, whilst maximising passive solar gain, introducing high levels of insulation and utilising natural materials.

Wonderful rural retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic few nights at Ty Lloi, the barn has been lovingly converted by Jon and Karen, is immaculately presented and very clean.

We were particularly impressed by the style and little touches throughout such as the log burner, glass walkway and floral decorations. The kitchen was very well equipped meaning that we could easily cook for ourselves and make the most of the rural location; only venturing out when we wanted to. Exploring the area was easy when the mood took us with a less than 30 minutes drive to either the coast at Newgale or into St Davids.

Jon and Karen were brilliant hosts, always on hand to assist but never intrusive, their directions to Ty Lloi were spot-on as were their restaurant recommendations. We also took advantage of their offer to cook us dinner one night, the food was exceptional, it would have felt in-place at a top quality restaurant and was tremendous value for money.

We look forward to returning to Ty Lloi in the future!

An absolutely wonderful break with everything taken care of and wonderful little extras

  • 5 of 5

The barn is stunning, the little extra food items and wine in the fridge were wonderful extras to arrive to- we enjoyed a cup of tea and the homemade bakewell slice upon arriving, perfect after the long drive. Peaceful, quiet location, just what we were looking for and great for the dog. The home cooked meal on our last night was delicious. All round, we couldn't have hoped for more

Fantastic stay at a beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

Ty Loi was a beautiful home that showed exactly as described. Karen had all the lights on for us upon arrival and all the necessities to get us through to the next day were available, including a bottle of Welsh wine. We were located in an ideal location, close drive to the coast and many hikes. Would definitely return.

Ty Lloi is a truly unique, luxurious retreat. Words are inadequate to describe the whole experience.

  • 5 of 5

Karen and Jon have created a stylish, impeccable, place to rest, relax and thoroughly enjoy. Ty Lloi is impressively beautiful from the minute you enter the drive. The attention to detail is quite remarkable and the exceptionally high quality of everything you touch, see or use is a joy, from the simple items such as the towels in the bathroom, the art on the walls, the Welshness of the soft furnishings and the views night (starry skies) and day. Our brief stay was to celebrate my birthday. We took advantage of Karen and Jon's offer of a three course evening meal on our first night. The meal, using local and home produce was excellent, so much so, that, we requested one of their seasonal meals, for our last night. The very welcome provisions, on arrival, again, astound one! A bottle of local wine, very tasty eggs, delicious home made brownies, and inimitable home made bread. A very helpful, clear 'handbook' guided our first exploration of the charming landscape of Pembrokeshire, to which we are now addicted!

It was hard to leave....

Fantastic barn conversion in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend at Ty Lloi. The house is fantastic and such thought and detail has gone into every aspect of the conversion. The location was perfect, rural without seeming isolated and a good base for beach walks and for visiting local towns. We were delighted to receive treats on arrival (as well as a treat for our dog) and it was a lovely touch. We enjoyed a meal at The Wolfcastle Country House Brasserie and the food was a very good standard We would definitely recommend Ty Lloi and will be back to visit ourselves in the future.

An amazing property set in a beautiful quiet location. The hosts were on hand if you needed anything & they left a generous welcome pack including some Welsh wine, free range eggs, milk etc so thoughtful. We highly recommend the property and can't wait to go back.
