A lovingly converted eco barn overlooking a wildflower valley in arty Pembs. For honeymoons and mini moons... a slice of heaven!

Solar panels, biomass boiler, wood-burner, Welsh wool… You're as snug as a bug and surrounded by wildlife, yet only five minutes from Newport. Down a pot-holed track on a hillside, overlooking the lush valley, is this big lovely bolthole for two. Jemma (jeweller) and Daniel (cellist) have happily returned to the family home to raise their young family and are full of exciting plans, eg. vintage weddings and civil ceremonies in the barn. (Don't worry: all self-catered stays are wedding-free!). The setting is idyllic and the garden has a view-filled terrace, picnic table and fire pit, raised beds and a beautiful wild flower meadow. Inside are two levels of heated wood floors (sanded planks up, new oak down) linked by a small curving stair. The open-plan sitting/dining/kitchen space is downstairs, the wet room too, and the bedroom is up: goose down bedding, a claw-foot tub, space for an extra bed. Discover Europe's smallest city, St David's, or explore friendly little Newport. You can walk to the pub.

"My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay. It is a wonderful bolt hole nestled in the idyllic Welsh countryside. A delicious welcome pack was provided and everything was just as you might want. A perfect weekend of walks, red wine and lazing on the sofa - if you need to get away from the grind and fancy shutting off from the world for a while then this is the place (although we did catch up on a box set when it was raining - thank you Netflix)."

Dominic - Middleham, United Kingdom

"Nantwen is stunning and perfect for exploring the beautiful Pembrokeshire Coast. The barn is stylish, beautiful and very much loved and looked after by Daniel and Gemma. Equipped with everything you could need, cosy and comfortable. Couldn't recommend highly enough."


September 2015
"We were made to feel so welcome at Nantwen-Jemma's home made bread is legendary, and the welcome pack including local butter and milk was much appreciated! The cottage is as idyllic as it sounds-a luxuriously comfortable, tranquil hideaway, created with great vision and thought-so many lovely details respecting traditional methods and materials, but with a contemporary feel. Although secluded, it is very close to the magnificent coast, with superb walks possible in all directions-lots of helpful ideas and suggestions for visits are provided by the knowledgeable owners. Lovely! "
