Barn | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 7
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 velux windows. With comfortable sofas, antique furniture and warm oak floors, guests can relax with a selection of books and DVDs, watch the large screen TV with Satellite and Freeview, or just gaze out at the garden watching farm animals grazing in the fields beyond.
The sense of space and light continues as you access the next level on which will be found the cool, luxury bathroom with wood panelling, designer bath, heated slate floor and wet room with invigorating power shower which positively encourages indulgence and relaxation. Beyond, is the peaceful second bedroom whose considerable size amply accommodates twin four-poster beds. This level is completed by a utility room with central heating boiler and washing machine.
Up a few more steps reveals the third bedroom containing a king and single bed making it ideal as a family room. All three bedrooms are tastefully colour-coordinated and have warm, solid oak floors and dressing tables. Two of the bedrooms have sizeable wardrobes and TVs.
A walk outside reveals a tranquil and sheltered patio leading to large lawn with several features provided by our friendly and hospitable neighbours for the more energetic: zip wires, swings, even a pirate ship! Beyond the garden is a woodland walk with picnic area and, eventually, the sea. The garden is overlooked by a completely unique tower offering commanding views across the hamlet and fields beyond. Whether it's to read, eat, keep an eye on the children playing or enjoy an evening drink, this unusual feature makes a stay at West barn truly unforgettable.

"There is no better place to spend a holiday in Pembrokeshire!"
We loved the house (completely renovated, large kitchen, huge bathroom with shower and bath, 3 bedrooms and a lovely living room), and the wonderful garden - not only the kids (10 years) enjoyed the huge playground with Tarzan swing and zipp wires and a water slide...
Of course the location in Freshwater East Lake is just perfect for days on the beach, and also to visit places in Pembrokeshire. It takes about 10 minutes to walk to the coastal path and 20 minutes to Fershwater East bay.
Andrew and his family were absolutely great, and made us feel at home from the very first day!
So yes: absolutely 5 stars !!!!!

"Superb accomodation. Amazing garden. Fantastic hosts."
We had an excellent holiday this year. The children absolutely loved the garden and were occupied on the zip slides, trampoline, swings and playing football in the more than ample garden. The beach was beautiful and quiet. We managed to play tennis and cricket, rock pool, swim, surf, climb, as well as about five minutes of reading and relaxing. Andrew and his family were excellent hosts, offering us the use of bicycles, boats and other beach related things. Dylan, our eldest son, 9, stated that it was the best holiday ever! We would thoroughly recommend this property.
