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 Pembrokeshire

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.

Really first class accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We have had a wonderful week at Ty Lloi. Everything is in the property that you would wish for - very comfortable bed with Secret Linen sheets. Very well equipped kitchen - good reception for WiFi. Warm - birds singing - we could easily have moved in and stayed!! Jon and Karen are great hosts too, and the cottage pie was delicious! Hopefully we will be back!

Thank you for a wonderful stay.

A stunning property with great hosts

  • 5 of 5

Prior to arrival we had great communication with Karen and Jon and they arranged for a delicious home cooked evening meal for us, which was perfect after a long drive. There was also some lovely welcome gifts (home made biscuits, fresh eggs etc.)

The barn conversion is stunning, and a great base for exploring all that Pembrokeshire has to offer. The nearest beach (Newgale) is only 10-15 minutes drive away and we were able to get to Freshwater West, Barafundle Bay, Stackpole in around 40 minutes. There is also Solva, Druidstone, Little Haven and Marloes Sands a short drive away. Amazing beaches and coastal walking.

The barn is modern, elegant, clean and well equipped with a lovely garden and a log burner should you need it. Note the place is so well insulated that you don't need the burner on for long!

We arranged for a three course meal to be cooked and delivered by Jon and Karen...wow, high end restaurant quality food at a fraction of the price and all served to you in the comfort of the barn.

We had a wonderful stay and would certainly return to Ty Lloi when we come back to Pembrokeshire. Highly recommend this property.

The barn is absolutely beautiful, so clean and everything has been thought out to the very last detail, nothing is forgotten. Amazing bed and shower. Owners are so obliging, nothing is too much trouble. Will be back again soon.

A little bit of heaven

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful barn conversion, beautifully furnished, and well equipped. Warm and cosy. Perfectly situated for exploring the lovely Pembrokeshire countryside. We brought our two small dogs and they loved it to. Plenty of walks for them straight from the cottage. The owners were kind and had been very thoughtful about things they had left in the cottage. The dogs were even made to feel welcome with some biscuits being left for them. It's peaceful and quiet, and we will definetly come back.

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.
