About the property

Barn in St Nicholas Nr Fishguard, Pembrokeshire, Wales - Peaceful Location, A Short Walk To The Beach

Treseissyllt Hafod is a wonderful house in a peaceful setting in the heart of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. It lies between Strumble Head and Tregwynt near the beaches of Aberbach and Abermawr. A private track leads to the property and a footpath down to the sea and the Pembrokeshire Coast Path National Trail, making Hafod a perfect base for both family and walking holidays. The farm has been in the family for 60 years and its stables have been superbly converted retaining many of the original features. It is exceptionally light, with views towards Strumble Head, spacious and comfortably furnished and has excellent drying facilities. Parking is directly in front of the house and an extensive lawn leads out to fields.

About Fiona Buchan

My family have owned Treseissyllt for nearly 60 years and used to farm there. We converted the old stables in 2004 into a very comfortable house which has been enjoyed by us, our children and many people since. We are obviously rather biased but we think that the Pembrokeshire coast is one of the most lovely and unspoilt parts of Britain.

We live in Wiltshire and are happy to give you personal recommendations for the area.

Why Fiona Buchan chose Goodwick


What makes this barn unique


Guestbook comments from the owner

“We loved the house and we were delighted with the spaciousness and layout of the property, ideal for a mixed group such as ourselves our ages ranging from 13yrs to 70yrs old. The house has several delightful comfortable seating areas. The kitchen large and well equipped. The bedrooms suitable for any mix of ages and genders. WiFi connection much appreciated particularly by our teenagers. Our days were often started or ended with a walk to the local beach a bonus to be able to get to the sea without the need of a car. We found Hafod ideally placed to reach many places of interest and fun. We particularly enjoyed shopping in St Davids, the rock pools at Whitesands, the space and variety of sports at Newgale beach, and the highlight, a trip around Ramsey Island on a RHIB boat. We felt a genuine welcome everywhere we went. What a warm and friendly community. Thank you for letting us stay in your house we all had a lovely holiday.”

Wonderful Converted Stables Near The Coast In The Pembrokeshire National Park
average rating of 4.4 based on 8 reviews

Super space, stylish fitting, equipped brilliantly

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a week with two families. 7 of us never felt cramped and we enjoyed having people over. Ample kitchen supplies and equipment (rangemaster) to properly cook 'home from home'. The photos do not show how big the space is inside and the mezzanine sitting room space is large and relaxing. Separate utility room and drying space great for wetsuits etc. Weber barbeque fab. The nearby walkable beaches(good 15 mins) are remote and never crowded - pebbles and sand mix - some surf - swell / wind conditions depending. Fishguard music festival a good bonus. Our kids 4-9yrs mix could play safely and visibly in the large garden. Thoroughly recommend. Tesco online delivers too.

Two families visited four adults and four children aged seven to thirteen . The barn is a haven ! It's clean,convenient and spacious . The gardens and surrounding area is beautiful . A real central location for all to explore being walking or driving . It's on a farm where the children loved seeing the sheep or horses or just being able to play with Della the dog. The walk to the beach was stunning and well worth a visit at dusk to witness the sunset something our children wanted to do most nights !

Would thoroughly recommend this place a revisit from our family is a must .

A superbly located, well equipped, characterful property. The beach down the lane is well worth the 20 minute walk. Excellent for proximity to Newgale beach which became our favourite and would recommend visits to SOlva, St David's, Fishguard and many others beautiful locations. If you have a head for heights visit Whitesands Beach and if you have a dog take the coastal path to the neighbouring beach, it's small, secluded and very lovely. The boat trip to Ramsey Islands to see seals, puffins and porpoise are also well worth it. We took our dog on the Sheerwater trip and they were very happy to accommodate. The surf centre right on the beach at Newgale are very helpful and reasonable and can supply all the kit you need. If you go when the tide is out there are two fantastic beaches to visit for rock-pooling. The barn itself was charming, lovely fresh smelling linen and we were very impressed with the well stocked and spacious kitchen, characterful rooms and the bonus of a washing machine and dryer meant with a family of five we returned home with cases of clean clothes for a change! A super house, a lot of thought has gone into this property and what is provided. Would thoroughly recommend.

Super Lage, tolles Haus, nette Menschen

  • 4 of 5

Das Haus war toll und für acht Personen super und ausreichend groß. Das alte Haus ist sehr stilvoll restauriert und ergänzt worden. Die Umgebung ist sehr schön. Die Felsklippen und Steillüste kann man auf einem gut ausgebauten Weg toll bewandern und bewundern. Die Strände sind nett aber grobkieselig.

Die Einkäufe sind etwas abgelegen zu erledigen. Da aber die Küche riesig ist, lässt sie genug Raum für Vorräte. Man muss also nicht so häufig los.

Die Felder wurden zu der Zeit mit Gülle bedacht, bei ungünstigem Wind gab es fiese Landluft. Das Wetter dieses Jahr sei von Seiten der Hauseigentümer nicht beeinflussbar gewesen. Schade!

Fijn ruim huis op loopafstand van de zee!

  • 5 of 5

We hebben genoten van het prachtige vakantiehuis, vlakbij de zee en leuke stadjes als Fishguard en St Davids. Het huis was heerlijk ruim, wij waren er met zeven personen. Een fijne woonkeuken en verder verschillende zitjes maakten het verblijf heel comfortabel. Ook hebben we veel buiten gezeten, de ruime tuin met vrij uitzicht gaf ons een heerlijk vakantiegevoel. Verder van alle gemakken voorzien, zeker een aanrader voor een bezoek aan Wales!
