Newport, Pembrokeshire

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


1 bedroom


Sleeps 2


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.

A beautiful place for a small wedding. Jemma and Daniel were excellent hosts. The cottage is lovely with everything you could need for a romantic break. Set in the beautiful Pembrokeshire countryside near the beach and restaurants/ pubs of Newport this is a great location.

Claire, Bristol

We had a very nice stay at Nantwen. The cottage is warm, nicely decorated and well equipped. Good local walks and Newport is a charming village with good restaurants and food shops if you feel like staying in.

Patrick, Saffron walden

Wonderful setting of lovingly restored cottage with perfect wildflower meadow and garden. Quiet. Secluded. Great log fire, shower and well equipped kitchen. So good we even got engaged!

Giles, Bath, uk

Nantwen is just beautiful, so peaceful and cosy. Highly recommended to everyone who wants luxury whilst being far from the madding crowd.

Jean, Machynlleth

A fantastic and peaceful place to stay. Beautifully appointed accommodation. Fantastic friendly but not intrusive hosts. Brilliant base for exploring the Pembrokeshire area.

David, Selby

Lovely venue for our wedding. Whole family was very helpful and we really enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

Evelyn, Uttoxeter

We had everything we needed at Nantwen including a really warm welcome from Daniel & Jemma. The location is perfect and the house warm and comfortable. The night sky took our breath away, we've never seen so many stars!

David, Birmingham

Nantwen is a fabulous secret. Secluded and romantic. We had a perfect wedding and loved every minute. It is truly, a very special place.

Dagmarr, Bristol

Wonderful location. Quiet. Stunning building. Bath in the bedroom a real luxury. Kitchen well stocked. Friendly host.

Peter, Penarth

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

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.


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!

Local points of interest from Daniel & Jemma Slade-Davies

  • luxurious space for two in a quiet setting. A home from home built by local craftsmen. Breathtaking wooden features and real attention to detail.
  • In the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Walk from the door in ancient woodland, or the Coast at near by Newport.
  • Guests to Nantwen are given freshly baked bread, milk and butter as well as a delicious welcome hamper. Further food can also be ordered. See our website for more information.
  • Bake in the well equipped kitchen or prepare a romantic evening meal to enjoy around the rustic table before curling up with a book or watch a DVD from a vast selection in the snug.
  • Neal's Yard products to enjoy in our deep claw foot bath.
  • Take a boat ride to Skomer, Visit Narberth or St David's, watch the dolphins in Cardigan Bay. Amble through the village of Newport with its Small shops and galleries before stopping for a delicious meal in one of the five restaurants.
