About the property

1 bedroom character cottage set in rural village in Pembrokeshire

The Old Stables is a former coach house set in the center of Puncheston village. The recently completed conversion has made the property a modern functional dwelling yet has retained its characteristic appeal. On the ground floor there is separate living room with a log burner, modern kitchen with appliances and dining area, bathroom with fitted shower unit. Stairs lead to the bedroom on the first floor which is fitted with a king size bed. A cot is also available upon request.

About Wayne Thomas

Wayne and Emma run the local pubs in Puncheston and Clarbeston Road. Both were born and grew up in rural Pembrokeshire. They live in Clarbeston Road raising their young daughter.

Wayne Thomas purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Wayne Thomas chose Clarbeston Road

The property is set in the center of the village providing excellent access to the north coast of Pembrokeshire, its scenic beaches, coastal walks and seaside villages of Newport, Fishguard, St Davids and Cardigan. It is also at the foothills of the Preseli Mountains and close to the origins of the Preseli Bluestones used for Stonehenge.

Lovely & old outside -Lovely & modern inside!

  • 5 of 5

Such a charming & comfortable cottage with both a very nicely modernized kitchen & bath. Clean & well equipped. Set in a quiet hamlet, the location afforded us a good proximity to country & city. Not far to Fishguard or Haverfordwest, both boasting some fabulous beaches. As well, close to the beautiful country of the Gwaun Valley. The people of Pembrokeshire were all just fabulously friendly & helpful! Wish we could have stayed at this lovely cottage much longer!

lovely Cottage/ Ferienhaus der extraklasse

  • 5 of 5

We have bought this cottage for 2 nights for a Stop from Irland back to Germany and we´re very very surprised. We arrived very early in the Morning ( around 2 am) in the dark and when i see the Cottage i think it was a house with 3 apartments. Wrong...it was all for us. From the small corridor there is on the left side a very beautiful bathroom with a luxury shower and bathtub. The kitchen was realy big and new, included with a table and enough space for a relax breakfast.

The living room with a chimney and a leathercouch invited to relax with the sound of fire and a glass of whine.

Thank you wayne for this beautiful cottage, we´ll come back^^

Wir haben dieses Ferienhaus eigentlich nur zur Überbrückung auf der Druchreise von Irland nach Deutschland gebucht und wir waren sehr überrascht. Wir sind um 2 Uhr Nachts angekommen und im dunkeln dachte ich, dass das Haus für 3 Pateien gedacht ist. Falsch gedacht, es war alles nur für uns. Von dem kleinen Flur geht nach links ein luxuriös eingerichtetes Badezimmer mit einer geräumigen Dusche und einer riesigen Badewanne ab. Die Küche ist wirklich riesig und komplett neu mit genug Platz und einem Küchentisch um gemütlich zu Frühstücken. Das Wohnzimmer mit dem kleinen Kamin und der Ledercouch laden zum relaxen beim prasseln des Feuers und einem Glas Wein ein.
