About Hugh Wilson

The owners are Yvonne and Hugh Wilson who live on site and available for any enquiries or assistance. Both now happily retired moved to Pembrokeshire seeking the tranquility and beautiful coastlines and countryside which Pembrokeshire provides.

Hugh Wilson purchased this barn in 2012

Why Hugh Wilson chose Pembrokeshire

We sought a property in the country but at the same time not too remote. Our decision to move to Wales from Dorset was based on bringing Yvonne back to her birth roots and also to provide an annex home for her Mother who is now 97 and very, very Welsh despite the fact that she lived in Hertfordshire from soon after 1945 until 2005.

Dovecote Barn is on the site of the property and was historically the Cow Barn. It was converted some years ago but has now undergone a complete makeover from top to bottom to provide a comfortable and hopefully a home from home atmosphere for our future guests. The addition of a conservatory in 2013 allows our guests a secluded room where they can enjoy maybe a glass of wine and see the night stars in all their glory as ground light is near zero !

What makes this barn unique

It is our objective that you leave us more relaxed than when you arrive, if we achieve this then we have succeeded.

The convenient location to Narberth, the Pembrokeshire coastal walks and Preseli National Park all make for a varied choice for the holidaymaker. If young children need entertaining then there is no shortage of attractions in the area all within easy reach.

The owners property is fenced off from Dovescote Cottage keeping the owners dogs away from visitors, thus anyone nervous of dogs should have no concerns. We have numerous enquiries from owners of nervous dogs who seek refuge on Bonfire Night away from firework noise. We are in a very peaceful area and seldom if ever hear a firework.

Peaceful and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is set in a lovely location and is comfortable and well equipped. The conservatory is a plus so that even in inclement weather you can feel connected with the lovely scenery. We appreciated the owners being there to greet us on arrival and being on hand for any queries. They kindly left us milk and tea bags as well as Welsh Cakes so we could settle in with a cuppa after our journey. Also great that essentials such as soap, loo rolls, dishwasher tablets etc were provided. Thanks we had a lovely stay.

A lovely short break in a beautiful part of pembrokeshire. Hugh and yvonne were wonderful hosts and the well equipped cottage was all we hoped it would be.

Superb accommodation, beautiful location and fantastic hosts

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights here at the end of March and had an absolutely wonderful time. The cottage is beautiful, very cosy, finished to a very high standard and incredibly well equipped. We really appreciated the provision of cot, high chair and buggy especially! We turned up to find Hugh had a roaring fire going in the log burner for us, a bottle of milk in the fridge and a plateful of welshcakes waiting for us on the side. Much appreciated after a long journey! It's a beautiful corner of the world, made even better by the fantastic weather we had. And the kids were beyond excited to see Hugh's tractor and mini digger in action! As hosts, Hugh and Yvonne were wonderful, so friendly, helpful and approachable, and we could happily have spent hours chatting to them. It's rare with young children that any holiday feels truly like an escape from it all, but somehow this did. I can imagine making this a regular bolt-hole and can't wait to explore more of the area next time.

Many thanks for your generous comments. Can't guarantee a digger next time but tractor always around ! Love to see you again when you can get a break. Yvonne and Hugh
