“Stunning cottage, great location!”
Reviewed 10 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We stayed here for a long weekend and our party consisted of myself, my husband, our two year old little boy and my husbands parents.

We were greeted by the previous owner and neighbour, Andrew, who welcomed us and showed us the property. It was a pleasant surprise upon arrival that the property really did live up to the photos of it - unlike many others I've found where camera angles and a trick of the light can be deceiving! The rooms are wonderfully light and airy and the property has a lovely modern and clean feel to it.

The garden area is fantastic - especially for anyone with children - and my little one thoroughly enjoyed the trampoline. What a great way to tire him out! Obviously he was too young to make the most of the swings, rope swings and zip wire, but it's little extra's like this that make us want to return when he's older.

The location of the cottage is very rural and it was wonderful to experience the peace and quiet of the countryside. With most larger areas/towns such as Tenby, Pembroke and Saundersfoot only a short drive away, this is a great place to base yourself.

Overall we had a fantastic weekend and would highly recommend this property to others - it really does just tick all the boxes!

“Home from home but better!”

The Barns was a wonderful holiday experience. The cottage itself is very well equipped with everything we could want for (at one point we were catering for 9 and there was no panic for cooking pots or crockery). The washing machine and dryer was a lifesaver and meant we could return home with much less washing than ever before. Room was ample so that we could be together but have enough space for ourselves if required as well. Andrew and his family were wonderfully welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed, lending us wetsuits, boogie boards, bikes, wind break and anything else we could have desired. Of course they also gave full permission for us to use the amazing garden which kept everyone busy included grandad in his 70s who decided to try out the zip wire much to the amusement of the grandchildren.

The cottage is positioned perfectly to explore Pembrokeshire and with Freshwater East beach only 15 minutes walk away you wouldn't have to go far to experience the beauty and tranquility or fun and frolics in the sea if you didn't want too go far away.

A great time had by all, thank you Deborah.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed 4 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Brilliant family holiday. My ten year old son and forty year old husband loved the garden with all the activities available. The beach and coastal path are just a ten minute walk away and the local pub has a beautiful view looking out over the coast. Will definitely be returning to The Barns again one day.

“Large and Luxurious - What a great escape!!!”
Reviewed 6 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

What a lovely luxurious. tranquil and spacious cottage. Set within 10 mins walk to the beach from the fields. Garden wonderful, and kept my teenage son occupied during our stay. Cant believe how large the rooms are. Will definitely be back. What a wonderful relaxing holiday, can't say how much we loved it.
