This beautifully converted farm building is full of quirky features and charm with thick curvy stone walls and beams. It has been lovingly restored by local craftsmen inspired by the architectural ideas of Rudolf Steiner. Downstairs is open plan with oak flooring. The kitchen has a Rayburn for Winter use, a gas hob and electric oven and fitted kitchen. There is a pine dining area and the living room has two settees and a wood burning stove. It has a double bedroom, a twin bedded galleried bedroom and a single sleeping loft. Please note that the single sleeping loft is through an archway from the galleried bedroom + that it is not possible to stand in it...it is very popular with children.

The whole building is quite open plan and different and quirky! Outside there is a small pond to the front (mostly fenced) and table chairs and bench. There is direct access to the moor with sheep and wild ponies. Gors Fawr stone circle, 5000 years old, is just 5 minutes walk from the cottages. Should the Cowshed be booked for the dates you want we have a selection of oter cottages and a Yurt to choose from if you look at 'Trallwyn Holiday Cottages'More

Like no other place we have stayed. The most beautiful peaceful location. Anna has provided an environment that is both relaxing and serene. Will be back in the future. The Cowshed is very unusual and provides a wonderful and interesting place to stay.

We will always remember staying in this beautiful barn conversion by the moors. Highlights were bonfires on the moor, pottery with Anna and cosy nights in by the wood-burning stove. We were close to great beaches for swimming and body boarding, cliff walks and an...More

This is the most peaceful retreat you could ever wish for. Central for coastal excursions as well as the discovery of burial grounds and other ancient sites. Highly recommended.

Additional amenities & feature info
The heating is by storage heaters + woodstove for most of the year. Optional multi fuel rayburn. Electricity is on a £1pound and 50p coin meter at cost price...The first basket of logs is included in the price after which logs are £5 per basket. Please note that old stone buildings do take quite a lot of heating in the Winter...we have many ways of heating - electric heaters and storage heaters plus woodstove and rayburn. The majority of people love this but it is not the same as a Central heating system.

About the neighbourhood
Superb location...just walk out of the gardens and you are on the moors with sheep and wild ponies! Walk in one direction for 5 minutes and you get to Gors Fawr ancient stone circle or in the other direction for 20 minutes and you are at the bottom of the Preseli Mountains...the ridge is known as the 'Golden Road' and ancient trade route... Hear the skylarks and watch birds of prey circling the skies...this is wild and magical land... We also have a fire pit out on the moor...you can go and gather wood and have a fire as the sun goes down! Our closest beaches are 12 miles from here Poppit Sands and Newport being the closest...Pembrokeshire has an abundance of beautiful beaches and the coastal path is truly stunning...
Getting around
Easiest by car...but some people bring bikes and or arrive by train...
