Description

Situated within the grounds of the owner’s smallholding, this fantastic barn conversion boasts a roomy social space, underfloor heating and a cosy wood burner.

Paxton View Barn is an attractive and airy detached barn conversion situated within the grounds of the owner’s smallholding, where they have pygmy goats, a horse and donkey, geese and chickens. The barn has been carefully renovated to provide quality accommodation with contemporary comforts.

To the front and side of the barn, there is a spacious stone patio leading to a lawned area, the perfect spot for enjoying an al-fresco meal with a drink. The interiors feature exposed stone, brickwork and oak lintels which add much character, and the combination of underfloor heating and a wood burner provide all the warmth and cosiness you will need. The full-length feature window and patio doors allow natural light to flood the rooms, and the open-plan living space boasts comfortable seating and a bespoke kitchen with an induction hob and a built-in oven. Also on the ground floor, there is a twin bedroom and a separate toilet. On the first floor, you will find the family bathroom and two bedrooms, both with kingsize beds, one of which also has an en-suite shower room and a delightful balcony with table and chairs, to take full advantage of the view of Paxton‘s Tower, after which the barn was named.

The tower is a neo-Gothic folly built by Sir William Paxton in honour of Lord Nelson. Well worth a visit, it is situated on a hilltop near Llanarthney, and its location provides fabulous views over the National Botanic Gardens of Wales and the Towy Valley. These famous botanic gardens, just two miles away, are a fascinating blend of the contemporary with the historic. You will find an inspiring range of themed gardens, the world’s largest single-span domed glasshouse, play areas and a national nature reserve, all set in a Regency landscape, which provides the stage for a packed programme of events and courses throughout the year, whatever the weather.

Carmarthenshire has some of the most spectacular and diverse landscapes in south-west Wales. You can travel over breathtaking mountains, through lush, green landscapes, discover secluded castles and ancient forests, as well as vast expanses of golden sandy beaches such as the Pembrey (one of the longest in Wales), Laugharne, Pendine and Lansteffan. Also within easy reach are a wealth of attractions found along the Pembrokeshire Coastline and the Gower Peninsula.

Just a 10-minute drive away is Carmarthen; the oldest town in Wales and the birthplace of Merlin according to Arthurian legends. The town offers an array of shopping, entertainment and dining options, and equally worthy a visit is the old jail house, which dates back to the 1530s. Today, it serves as a museum nestling within the outer walls of the imposing County Hall. Just outside the town, you can take a ride aboard the Gwilil Steam Railway, which puffs its way through the Carmarthenshire countryside, and special adult and family events take place throughout the year.

Why not come and stay at Paxton View Barn and find out for yourself how much there is to discover in this wonderful region? When you have enjoyed a busy day’s exploring, you will find a “Croesco Cynnes” or a warm Welsh welcome just half a mile away in one of the two traditional pubs, complete with oak beams, roaring log fires and locally sourced produce. One of them, a 14th century thatched pub, has its own brewery crafting real ales and cider. The owners live in the adjacent building, so help is always at hand. Beach 20 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

    Beautiful location loads around to. Might have been helped by the great weather we had but the barn would be ideal for a winter escape too.

    Had a fabulous holiday here, despite the weather! Beautifully appointed barn that was cosy and warm. Great open space downstairs for cooking, eating and socialising. Ideally placed in Carmarthenshire.

    Stunning Views, from the moment we pulled up we knew we had picked the right place to stay, the welcome pack was a lovely gesture the Barn was very clean n well organised, everything you need is right there, even towels for the hot tub, the only thing that could of made it better was nothing, it was just perfect, comfy Sofas n Beds, an umbrella over the hot tub would of helped in the rain, but it would not of made our stay any better, a BBQ area in the summer would be a bonus for outside eating, we loved the Millenium Cycle Path n managed to get out on several occasions, we will be visiting again, thanks you to the owners for making it such a wonderful place to stay, 😃🚲😃

    Gorgeous cottage and the hot tub is a wonderful addition. It's a great base for exploring the area (you'll definitely need a car though) and very comfortable. My daughters loved it too. Would love to come back another year.

    What a fantastic cottage in a great location. Without a doubt the most clean and well equipped accomodation we have had the pleasure staying in. The children loved the hot tub (as did we) and having the farm animals was lovely. There are so many things to do and see within reasonable travelling distance. Thanks to the cottage owner Susan who was pleasant and very approachable. We have already recommended this gem to friends and family.

    Fabulous cottage in lovely quiet location with great views. 4 pubs within walking distance and good location for the Brecon Beacons and National Botanical Gardens. It has the addition of a hot tub which is fantastic for a relaxing soak after a day out exploring. Cottage is very clean and has everything you need for a holiday including a wood burner.
