Holiday Rental House
Tucked away in a gloriously secluded setting at the end of a 3/4 mile farm track, this former farm byre provides perfect holiday accommodation for a couple. There are 6 and a half acres of woodland and pasture with a babbling brook running through for streamside walks. This location is perfect if you want to just hideaway for a week or to explore the counties of Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire. The Preseli hills are steeped in mystery and magic and make great walking as does the Pembrokeshire coast footpath which can be joined at Newport or Poppit Sands just 10 miles away. Very pet friendly accommodation. Ground floor Entrance is into the large HALL which has a laminate floor and ample storage space for coats and walking boots as well as a writing desk, small washing mac...Tucked away in a gloriously secluded setting at the end of a 3/4 mile farm track, this former farm byre provides perfect holiday accommodation for a couple.
