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.


Exceptional! 5/5 -

A great place to stay. Very well equipped and clean. A good located to explore the area.

  • 5 of 5

The barn is immaculate and warm ( our stay was in mid Feb during cold spell) with log burner if you want and we did! The kitchen is very well equipped for self catering and there was a lovely welcome pack of cake, wine, milk and homemade jam and there are a good selection of places to eat in the surrounding area ( St David's Kitchen, Cwtch cafe). There is a private garden with seating area to rear and there is very little light poluation so on clear evenings you have amazing views of the moon and stars from the very large windows. The owner was very helpful and friendly and even though they live next door you would never know. We would book this place again when we revisit the area later in the year because it's such a beautiful part of Wales.

Absolutely fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic place - an old barn on the outside but very modern and bright inside. We had a warm welcome and the food was delicious.

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!

Fantastic rural holiday

  • 5 of 5

Lovely barn conversion in the idyllic Welsh countryside. Jon and Karen were very helpful and obviously put a lot of thought into the design of the barn with great finishing touches.

Also a great garden if you've got a dog.

We can't wait to visit again!

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.
