  • Traditional barn, located in the grounds of a 15th Century Pembrokeshire tower house on a working farm, surrounded by quiet country lanes and peaceful countryside
  • This property is within easy reach of sandy beaches, small bays and villages, such as Dale and Marloes

Property code: 37186

Set within a working farm within the grounds of a 15th-century tower house, this former barn sleeps four and is an idyllic retreat for families and small groups. Forming part of the Marloes Peninsular, the countryside and coast surrounding St Ishmael’s is rugged and beautiful with ample opportunities for water sports, boat trips and walking. Weary from your explorations, pour yourself a glass of wine and unwind in your shared walled garden.

Inside is simply presented and cosy with all the home comforts you could need for a relaxing stay. Recline in the bright and spacious lounge with your favourite hot drink, warming your toes by the wood burner-effect fire and watching TV. The traditional-style kitchen/diner is thoughtfully equipped for rustling up meals, and there is a garden room for sitting back and admiring the views over the rose garden. At bedtime, there are two bedrooms, and completing the property is a bathroom with a shower over the bath. The rural location and lack of Wi-Fi make this a tranquil retreat for spending quality time with loved ones.

Adrenaline seekers can take to the waters of Dale’s sheltered bay 5.5 miles away, arranging activities such as snorkelling, kayaking and sailing via the popular adventure centre. Boat trips and sea safaris are the best way to experience the varied wildlife on the islands of Skomer, Skokholm and Grassholm, catching glimpses of Atlantic grey seals as well as thriving seabird colonies of puffins, peregrines and gannets. Marloes Sands 5.5 miles away is a glorious stretch of golden sand that will appeal for lazy days relaxing by the sea, and the coastal heathland will entice walkers of all abilities.

  • 2 bedrooms - 1 double and 1 twin on the ground floor
  • 1 bathroom, with shower over bath and WC
  • Kitchen/diner - with electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine

The cottage is an easy walk to the quiet beach at Sandy Haven and an easy drive to plenty of other beaches. The location was very quiet as it is on a dead end road, so very peaceful. The big pluses are the location and the garden, which is huge. There is no wifi and only 1 board game in the cottage, so bring your own entertainment.

Lovely peaceful location away from the main towns but close enough to anything that you would need.
