The Barns

Visited by Tripadvisor
Barn -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 7
Freshwater East, Pembroke, Pembrokeshire, Wales
Accessed via quiet country lanes, yet only a short drive from the historic towns of Pembroke and Tenby, West Barn is a luxury and spacious yet comfortable split-level barn conversion, nestling in a sheltered hamlet 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.

Entering the barn from the ample parking area, 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. Moving through to the open plan lounge, passing a downstairs toilet and double bedroom on the way, both ideal for the mobility impaired, the main seating area is drenched in natural light from large French doors and traditional windows as well as two...

Interaction with guests
On arrival you can expect to find a welcome pack with tea, coffee and maybe a few extras! There is also a book explaining the house, the local area and a wealth of leaflets and books to help you choose where to visit. Guests enjoy the total seclusion which the cottage offers, but with the knowledge that our neighbours are usually on hand to help out if you should have any difficulties. Many guests take advantage of their hospitality and have reported borrowing bikes and canoes while for some, the highlight of their stay was when their children were given rides on the horse!

Great cottage, well equipped, secluded, but close to local beaches/towns This cottage/barn conversion is lovely, the kids loved the rope swing (courtesy of next door’s back garden and being allowed to use it) and having their own rooms. The property is very well equipped and...More

This cottage is comfortable and well equipped (although towels are not provided) but we were disappointed to find that the lovely garden in the photos actually belongs to the neighbours. They were friendly and welcoming and made it clear that we were very welcome to...More

Thank you for your review. The garden is part owned by me (not just the patio but a large area) and includes exclusive use of a unique tower for relaxing on warm summer evenings. Yes it is left unfenced and most guests comment that they...More

About the neighbourhood
The cottage is in a small, secluded hamlet containing about six houses and cottages, surrounded by farmland. The clifftop, the coastal path and huge sandy beach of Freshwater East are just a short walk away, making this an ideal base for you to visit the rest of the Pembrokeshire Coast where you can head to quiet, sandy coves or the bustling seaside towns of Tenby, Saundersfoot and more - all just twenty minutes away.

Alternatively, this part of Pembrokeshire offers theme parks, wildlife parks, and more castles than you could possibly visit in a week! All these attractions are within twenty minutes of the cottage.
Getting around
The roads in Pembrokeshire and excellent and uncongested. Even Tenby, by far the busiest and most popular destination in the county, offers enough parking even in the height of Summer.

As an alternative, why not park in nearby Lamphey for free and take the bus or train? There are regular services to Pembroke, Tenby and beyond. Tenby station is just five minutes from the town centre and seven minutes from the beach.

How to get there
Airport: Cardiff: 100.0 km
Railway: Lamphey: 2.5 km
Ferry: Pembroke Dock: 10.0 km
Most travellers come to Pembrokeshire via the fast and convenient M4 motorway. Whilst this property enjoys a secluded position in the heart of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, it lies just 20 minutes from the end of the dual carriageway near Tenby, making it one of the easier parts of Pembrokeshire to reach. And on arrival you will find no shortage of safe and easy parking right in front of the entrance - ideal if you have lots of luggage!
Having a car in this area is useful, but buses and trains serve the nearby village of Lamphey, while the proximity to the beach and cliff path means you can leave the car behind and enjoy some spectacular walking.
