A lovely cottage in a very pretty location. Friendly and helpful owners, who were always on hand with any questions. My only issue was with the wifi connection, which was intermittent at best. The box was located in the owners house, so we could only get service from the second bedroom, nearest their house. This caused a few problems as I did need this for work a few times. A separate box in the cottage would be very useful. Overall our stay was pleasurable and we would definitely stay here again.
Firstly, Paul and Linda have done an incredible job of creating the barn to an exceptional standard. Beautifully quirky but modern interior.
We travelled 8 hours to arrive at Mount House Barn (with 3 small children) and it was worth every second!
The barn itself is well equipped with, TV, DVD, 2 en suites, comfortable beds, oven, log burner and even a washing machine. Patio doors which open onto the garden over looking the valley.
We had two fabulous 'pet' turkey's in the garden during our stay; intriguing for the boys.
The surrounding area is astoundingly beautiful. During our 6 days we relished the opportunity to visit the following attractions. Here are a few...
Devil's Bridge - 300ft waterfall in the Mountains. Absolutely spectacular.
The Silver Mine Experience in the Cambrian mountains. Children loved exploring the mine and gem panning. Good value for money.
Boat trip in the Irish Sea, down in Newquay. Newquay is a short drive away and a beautiful place. Saw dolphins playing at the harbour and lots of playful seals. Very friendly people.
Travelled to Fishguard a quirky fishing town with again lovely scenery.
An hours drive to St. davids beach.... Beach was full of surfers on October 31st, incredible! Breath taking scenery walking along the cliffs and lots of seals, birds and a good fishing spot.
St. Davids Cathedral- very large traditional cathedral definitely worth a visit. Also the palace attached children loved exploring this.
The small town of Newcastle Emelyn is lovely with nice shops and cafés. The beautiful river running through the town is worth a walk along.
Overall, our holiday created long lasting memories for both our children and ourselves. The location is perfect and the barn was a lovely retreat with all the required necessities. The children did not want to leave.
We have already booked to stay for two weeks during the summer months. In fact, we enjoyed it so much we are returning to spend our first wedding anniversary!
Thank you again Paul and Linda, see you soon!
