We live in St Davids and Ben my partner renovated Swallows Nest himself. He is a carpenter and green woodworker with his workshop near the barn so you can come and see him making stools and chairs. I am a full time stay at home mum and Open University student.

We had a wonderful stay. Swallow's Nest was great - warm, cozy yet roomy, comfortable, clean, attractive, easy wifi, the kitchen well-equipped ... We liked it so much we stayed an extra day. Excellent location, wonderful hosts. Ben and Anne made us feel quite welcomed and they provided great suggestions for enjoying our time. We hope to go back and will most definitely recommend the cottage to friends and family.
Excellent, really relaxed and welcoming, and warm. Very lovely barn and country feel.
With just the 2 of us staying, the barn was plenty large enough for us, and a lovely touch to provide some milk and a welcoming cake too. Owners really helpful and communicative, Ben turned up to make sure we were OK and understood how it worked.We have kept the details, and have already recommended to relatives.
We were fortunate to hit some lovely weather in October and sit outside to have breakfast, real treat. Highlight was probably having a fire and feeling very cosy on the Sunday evening. We enjoyed exploring Fishguard and found a really cool converted chapel that does lunch and drinks. The rib tour around Ramsay Island was a must, as well of course as the coastal paths.
The barn is really close to St David's, and we found it easily the late the first evening.
Lovely comfortable cottage.
Me and my family had a lovely week in Swallows Nest and would highly recommend it. It's in a great location for windy beach walks and generally exploring Pembrokeshire. Whitesands bay is a short drive away as well as the charming City of St Davids. The cottage has everything needed for a relaxing and comfortable stay.
The owners were also very nice and made efforts to make our stay fabulous.
All in all a great place to stay :)
Beautiful cottage in the sticks
The beautiful cottage was a perfect home for us to use as a base to go and explore some of west wales' best coastline.
Owners were very friendly and made sure we felt at home, we fell in love with the slate kitchen and didnt want to leave...
Little garden out back with benches was great to eat out in the sun before going on another mission.
Will definitely try and come back asap!
From the Owner
“We renovated the barn and when we bought it in 2007 it was a cowshed with cows in it! It is now a luxury barn conversion with underfloor heating throughout and a large woodburner. Swallows Nest is at Tregydd farm a quite location just a mile and a half from St Davids. The farm is no longer a working farm but there are horses and chickens. Pembrokeshire is a fabulous area and we have lived here for about 15 years. The beaches are some of the cleanest and quietest in Britain and our local beach Whitesands is a blue flag beach and is great for families. Swallows Nest is in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and has some of the most beautiful walks in the country right on the doorstep.”
