Discovered the barn whilst googling for a place to stay for a weeks break. We were delighted with the barn conversion. It is spotlessly clean and has wonderful views to the sea.

As holiday accommodation, Tresare Barn exceeded our expectations in every respect. The level of equipment and finish is exceptional. The welcome basket was an unexpected bonus. It is a working farm so you have to be aware of all that brings; meeting farm machinery in the access lane for example, we liked it very much The sea views were also unexpecRead moreted and very pleasant - although no guarantee that you will see it every day.

The accommodation was spotlessly clean, and very comfortable, with views out to sea and spectacular sunsets. Ideally placed for visiting St Davids, Whitesands Bay, Solva etc. Also possible to walk to the coast path from the property. Being at the end of a lane it was also extremely quiet and peaceful. The only negative point is the amount of flies Read more(due to it being a working farm), making it unpleasant to sit outside (the owners have added magnetic fly screens to the doors which helps a lot).
