Nestled in a scenic wooded valley in the charming hamlet of Dinas, this traditional Welsh barn conversion, adjacent to the owners’ home, is situated in 10 acres of matured grounds with two friendly resident horses, where wildlife flourishes and flowers blossom. The former barn dating back to the mid 18th century, has been carefully restored to uncover much of its original charm and character, including exposed Welsh oak beams and stone walls, with lots of welcoming touches added to provide couples with the perfect romantic retreat whatever the occasion. The open-plan living area is featured on the first floor which allows guests the freedom to snuggle up on the sofa next to the cosy wood-burning stove or on a warm summers evening, sit back and relax on the private balcony and watch the sun set over the picturesque countryside. Outside, the rugged woodland offers peace and tranquillity in abundance, where you can enjoy scenic walks along the glistening stream which leads into the village. Conveniently located on the borders of Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire, the area abounds with fantastic walks and historic sites dotted around the county, including the ancient burial chamber of Pentre Ifan Dolmen tucked away peacefully in the Preseli Hills and the majestic sites of Cardigan, Cilgerran and Carew castles. The traditional market towns of Newcastle Emlyn, Carmarthen and Cardigan are within easy reach. The iconic coastline of Pembrokeshire is within easy reach and features the picturesque coastal resorts of Newport and St Davids, as is the heritage coastline of Cardigan Bay which is famously renowned for spotting grey seals and bottlenose dolphins on a clear day! The historic town of Laugharne is just a short drive away and is famous for birthplace of the late Welsh poet Dylan Thomas, which features his iconic boat house and historic castle lying peacefully on the edge of the River Taf. The property is located 10¾ miles away from the popular Carmarthen Golf Club. Horse riding can be found 7¼ miles away. Shop 7 miles, pub 9 miles.

    Beautiful location, very well furnished, although would have preferred a king size bed as used to that at home! Loved the bathroom, fantastic shower. Lovely light burning fire made it very cosy.

    I loved my time here even though it was raining all the time. I came for peace and quiet and that's what I found. The hosts were welcoming and available if I needed them and the dogs were friendly too! For local amenities, Newcastle Emlyn was close by. The only reason I gave it a 5 was because it was not a quick pop down the road for some milk job. If you are looking for a rural, out of the way holiday this is the place for you.
