High quality and luxurious barn conversion close to the sea

Overview

Property

Updated: 02-Dec-2016
Barn near Freshwater East bay, Pembrokeshire, Wales - set in the peaceful hamlet of Lake, just 10 minutes walk to Freshwater East beach

A short drive from historic Pembroke and Tenby, West Barn is a luxury and spacious yet comfortable split-level barn conversion, nestling among the rolling hills of the Pembrokeshire National Park just a short walk from the coastal path, dramatic cliffs and sandy beaches of Freshwater East. You will be greeted by a large, stylish fully-equipped kitchen with integrated appliances, heated slate floor and high beamed ceiling. A farmhouse table is perfect for family meals. The lounge is drenched in natural light from large French doors and traditional windows as well as two velux windows. With comfortable sofas, antique furniture and warm oak floors, you can relax with a selection of books and DVDs, watch the large screen TV, or just gaze out at the garden watching farm animals grazing in the fields beyond.

Please note that a well-behaved dog is welcome, subject to conditions listed in the contract. Failure to declare pets or comply with the conditions may result in forfeiture of your damages deposit. For further details, please contact the owner before you book.

Simply gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

The barn is really a wonderful place to stay in. Tastefully furnished with all modern amenities and very spacious.

We had a great time there and it is a perfect touring base for South Wales. David was particularly quick at answering our emails and satisfied all our requests. The welcome wine was a special touch. The place is highly recommended!

Lovely quiet location with super outside garden space.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage itself was ideal, it had all the equipment in the kitchen you want, and nice layout. The jewel though is the outside garden (owned by the house next door but we only saw them when we went looking for them!)-children were gutted that zip wire had been pulled down, but soon got over that when they saw a badminton net + racquets and a trampoline! The walk to the beach is definitely not an easy stroll away as I'd hoped but didn't worry us as we hopped in car instead. Neighbours were lovely and happily let us borrow bike and bodyboard which we really appreciated. And welshcakes and bottle of wine on arrival was a nice touch.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your great review. Future guests please note: I have spoken to our neighbours who owned the zip wire but sadly they have become concerned over users' safety. I have to admit I was never brave enough to ride it! If it gets reinstated I'll add it back into the property description but I cannot delete references to the zip wire in past reviews as I'm not allowed to edit them - naturally! Dave Langton

Well converted barn into an easy living holiday house.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our week. The short walk to the beach through the fields and good weather meant that we spent most of the time on Freshwater East Beach. The neighbours/caretakers were most helpful. The website needs updating as the zip wire in the garden had been taken down.

Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for letting your wonderful home to us, we had a fab stay!!!!!

Very centrally located between Pembroke, Tenby, the beach, the local shop, just perfect.

The house has all mod cons, including a great choice of TV channels and WIFI.

The garden is fantastic for children, including a zip line, a climbing pirate ship, rope swings and a basketball hoop, the children returned to their own adventure playground after our numerous days out.

I can't recommend this accommodation highly enough, the neighbours provide such a warm welcome and at the end of the week they were kind enough to allow our daughter a ride on their horse - thank you.

Places to visit - For the children - Heatherton Park & Hangar 5 Trampoline Park.

Absolutely fantastic.....perfect weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this for a mums & daughters weekend, it was perfect for our needs. The girls ran into the garden and screeched with excitement, big thumbs up from them!! The house was very well equipped with everything you would need. The location is beautifully quiet (apart from our children...of course) and although the approach is narrow, it's well worth the drive. Very friendly neighbours who encouraged the children to help with the ducks and encouraged the adults to try the zip wire! Lovely place to stay for a small group or a couple of families, if you are happy to retreat away from it all then this is perfect. We spent the Saturday at Barafundle and then headed to Folly Farm before returning home. Thank you for a wonderful weekend.....we would not hesitate to recommend this to others!!!

Location

From the Owner

We fell in love with this property as soon as we saw it and knew it was a perfect holiday getaway. We loved the secluded grounds and location so close to the beach, with Tenby and Pembroke a short drive away.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Cardiff at 30 Miles Nearest Barpub : Various at 0.5 Miles Nearest Ferry : Pembroke Dock or Fishguard, for Ireland at 5 Miles Nearest Golf : Penally at 10 Miles Nearest Train : Lamphey at 0.5 Miles Nearest Motorway : M4 at 20 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Various at 0.5 Miles Nearest Beach : Freshwater East at 0.25 Miles Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

This part of Pembrokeshire is justly famous for its stunning coastline and path with cliffs and huge sandy beaches, many of which are quiet even in high Summer. This property is just 10 minutes walk To Freshwater East Beach or three minutes drive.

All other beaches in Pembrokeshire are well within reach and include Abereiddy, Amroth, Barafundle Bay, Broad Haven, Broad Haven South, Freshwater West, Manorbier, Marloes, Newgale, Poppit Sands, Saundersfoot, Tenby and Whitesands Bay.

For children there is an abundance of attractions including Folly Farm (vintage fair, wildlife park and other attractions), Manor Park (wildlife park), Oakwood (theme park), Dinosaur Land and Heatherton Park (adventure park) - all about 10 miles away.

For all visitors the picturesque walled fishing town of Tenby is a must, together with the more sedate Saundersfoot. From Tenby a boat trip to Caldey Island is unforgettable. Both Tenby and Saundersfoot are just 20 minutes drive away.

Castles abound and include Pembroke, Manorbier and Carew.

Other attractions:

Bosherston (lily ponds leading to Broadhaven Beach) - 5 miles

Stackpole Quay (National Trust Centre and cafe in secluded cove on the coastal path) - 3 miles

Travel: Car is desirable.

Nearest train station (Lamphey): half mile away with services to Pembroke, Tenby, Swansea and beyond.

Further Details:

West Barn sits right in the heart of the Pembrokeshire National Park which is Britain's only truly coastal National Park, covering 240 sq miles of spectacular landscape around Wales' south-western shore. It's a paradise for the wildlife enthusiast, internationally important for its rare habitats and species and offshore lie Pembrokeshire's unique islands, each with their own special character.

In 2011 National Geographic magazine voted Pembrokeshire the second best coastal destination in the world.

Nearest Post office, Petrol Station and Cashpoint: Lamphey

Several restaurants in Lamphey, Pembroke and Tenby
