Asheston Eco Barns


Eco is the word: solar panels, wind turbines, log-burners, at 5 family-friendly Pembrokeshire barns. Plus cycles, surf, BBQ patios.


5 places


Sleeping from 4 – 7


All is quiet in this corner of Pembrokeshire – though you can almost hear the waves crash on the nearby coast. Five barns hug a courtyard and fenced pond in this spot for families; a troupe could descend and live in merry conviviality (gather on the green outside; send the kids off to explore the safe play area) while still having their own private space to retreat to. Karen and Jeff rebuilt it all with an eco dream in mind and now the barns leave as small a footprint as possible. Wind turbines and solar panels keep them warm and bright, and all have limestone floors, log burners and antique furniture. Interiors are not stylish but very welcoming – The Cow Shed has a bedroom with a balcony that juts out towards the valley views, the Grain Store a double height living and dining room. Each barn has a dining table for the household to gather round and a private patio for al fresco barbecues. Karen is happily fanatical about sustainability, and will fill a welcome hamper with local delights. And there’s loads to do: pack a pannier and head off on the Celtic Cycle Trail, explore arty St David’s, surf or go for a hack on Nolton Haven’s beaches – you might even spot a whale or two.

Our holiday at Asheston was just the best to get to know Pembrokeshire. Our family of 8 had a wonderfull stay and the accommodation is very comfortable and kids loved the play area and garden. We loved Pembrokeshire and surfed the waves and enjoyed beautifull places as St Davids and Solva and White sands beach. Karen and her family are very welcoming and have created a little gem from where to enjoy this beautiful country. We enjoyed it all.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Karen Loo

  • Within 5 mins drive you can access the Pembrokeshire Coast Path - see what makes this county so spectacular and unique - depending on the time of year you'll see seabirds nesting on the cliffs or seal pups sheltering in the sandy coves.
  • If water is your thing how about learning to surf at Newgale, try "coasteering" - a unique way to explore the coastline from the sea. The list of activities is endless - sail, windsurf, paddle board, body board, kayak or just wild swimming.
  • If two wheels takes your fancy we are within a mile of the Celtic cycle trail or if four feet is more your thing, how about an exhilerating ride from Nolton Stables on Druidston beach - truly an experience not to be missed.
  • St. David's Cathedral and The Bishops Palace - the cathedral dates from around 1181 and is a majestic building in a hidden setting. Full of history - it is not to be missed on a visit to Pembrokeshire
  • The Shed in Porthgain - if fish is your thing then look no further then this excellent seafood restaurant - sumptuous cooking in a bistro environment.Cwtch in St. David's - an excellent restaurant specialising in local produce in a relaxed manner.
  • Art and craft is a big part of Pembrokeshire life and you will be spoilt for choice with many art galleries, craft workshops and cultural points of interest.
