Customers’ Choice Award 2018
Ideal for groups, this holiday property is equipped with a games room, which has a football table and pool table.

Situated in a picturesque, coastal position with spectacular views over Carmarthen Bay, this large, detached barn has been sympathetically converted to retain its original charm and character, making it an unforgettable experience for a family or groups looking to explore West Wales. This holiday property, adjacent to the owner’s home, is bursting with original character including original stone walls and beams, whilst lots of welcoming touches have been added for that homely feel throughout. For children and family entertainment, the barn boasts a spacious games room equipped with a pool and football table, a great distraction during inclement weather. Outside, guests can enjoy their large, lawned garden with a patio area, where they can sit, relax and unwind whilst watching the sun set over the idyllic bay. Carmarthenshire itself has lots on offer, including fantastic walks along the Millennium Coastal Path, which leads through scenic Pembrey Country Park, which is renowned for its dry ski slope, horse riding trails and 7 miles of beaches. For sports enthusiasts, visitors can enjoy a round of golf at the Jack Nicklaus course or watch live sport at the Llanelli Scartlets Rugby stadium and nearby Ffos Las racecourse. Away from the coast, the Carmarthenshire countryside is just as promising with its array of charming market towns and medieval castles including Kidwelly and Laugharne, or guests can visit the National Botanical Garden of Wales. Just a 60-minute drive away is the popular tourist resort of Tenby, with its cobbled streets, traditional Welsh pubs and thrilling leisure parks which are waiting to be explored. Beach ½ mile. Shop and pub 1 mile.

    Perfect for a big group was such a gorgouse cottage the only issue is that it looks isolated on the website but is surrounded by other barns and no enlosed lawned garden as stated. It didnt make much difference to us though we loved the hot tub and the barn was so beautifully done we had such a lovely stay and it was nice to have the beach so close and walkable. Wonderful unforgetable holiday would highly recommended to anyone.

    I booked The Cow Shed for a hen do in Jan 2018. It’s a beautiful cottage, perfectly laid out with all but one room along the main corridor. The open plan kitchen, dining & living room is the perfect spot for entertaining - there’s plenty of space & everything you could possibly need. The hot tub and views are a bonus, even in January they could both be enjoyed! Stunning venue, all the hens had a wonderful time and we will be back! Thanks

    This is a gorgeous property for a group of friends or family to spend time together. The space is amazing and it has everything you could wish for to make your stay comfortable. It looked gorgeous at Christmas and is warm and cosy. Be aware though, that Everyone will be awake as early as the earliest riser because it’s almost impossible to open and close the doors quietly and no one will be able to sleep until the last person goes to bed, as the games room is above the bedrooms.

    We have stayed at the Old Cow Shed several times now and keep going back. Our guys have physical and learning disabilities so the access and accommodation is perfect. There are gorgeous views from every direction and lot's to do in the surrounding area, we can't wait to book another holiday for early next year.

    A lovely place to celebrate a 90th birthday with all the family. Everything you could wish for in the accommodation and more. The hot tub was a hit especially with the younger members of the family. Would recommend this cottage to anyone.

    Though the accommodation itself was spacious enough to house 17 people, there were no 'private' spaces, and if the tv was being used in the mezzanine the sound echoed everywhere. The outside space was disappointing; the secure area for v young children to play was small, and the open grassed areas adjacent to the car parking so not able to be used unsupervised. So while owners/staff were very helpful and friendly, we will be looking for somewhere easier to reach and with more opportunities for small groups to do their thing next time the family goes away together.

    Had an amazing weekend at this stunning cottage. It was so spacious and had so much to offer, including a hot tub! Definitely planning a return visit!

    A wonderful holiday home, even more spacious than the pictures suggest, tastefully decorated, brilliantly equipped for a big group and with stunning views. Very helpful and welcoming hosts, too. It's in an interesting and quiet area with lots of castles and coastal areas to discover. As others have commented, the only major downside is that sounds carry easily in the bedroom corridor due to the the tiled floors and cast iron door latches, which means early rising children can easily disturb later sleepers. Otherwise, highly recommended!
