Boasting a cosy woodburner and large garden, this single-storey barn conversion is a fantastic base to explore the area from.

This single-storey long barn and former dairy dates back to the 1650s and lies in the quiet, small village of Mathry on the edge of the Pembrokeshire National Park. It has been lovingly restored, taking great care to keep many of its original features. There are arrow slit windows, vaulted ceilings, exposed brickwork, limestone flooring and deep inset window sills all blending together with tasteful decor to create a wonderful holiday home for a large family. The open plan living space is divided into two sections with the living room having an impressive wood-burning stove, ideal for the cooler months, TV, Wi-Fi and comfy fabric sofas. Moving through to the kitchen/dining room, there is a large farmhouse table and chairs, and limestone flooring. The main bedroom is light, has high ceilings and boasts a king size bed and en-suite with a shower room and toilet. The second double is slightly smaller but equally as attractive. The third and final bedroom has a bunk bed, ideal for children. The barn also has a generous amount of outside space with an enclosed lawn and patio to the front from which you can allow dogs and children to play in relative safety.
Mathry is a small village, positioned on a hill top offering fine views of St David’s Peninsula. You are just 200 yards from the local pub and restaurant and a stone’s throw from Abermawr Bay, a dog friendly sand and pebble beach ideal for fishing, swimming and surfing. A short drive brings you to the historic city of St David’s, the smallest city in Wales. Visit the magnificent cathedral, explore the nearby Pembrokeshire Coast or take a trip to Grassholm Island to see the large amount of nesting gannets.

    Swallow Lodge is a great cottage. The barn has been excellently converted - it was stylish and spacious. My favourite feature was the wood burning stove which was fantastic to lounge in front of. It was also very quiet and peaceful. Overall we had a great stay. It could be improved by having better mattresses and pillows and having a better stocked kitchen.

    A lovely barn conversion with everything we needed. Great local scenery, very quiet, all you can here is the cows now and again, which was great. Would stay again perhaps in the summer, although we had good weather for mid October and managed to get a good few walks in along the coastline.

    Lovely cottage in a wonderful location and obviously a lot of thought and love has gone into the renovation. They really need to invest in some new mattresses! And although the bathrooms and kitchen were very clean there was a lot of dust in corners and on furniture

    Lovely converted piggery in small village location, great pub and tea room on the door step. Good location if you like lovely walks down to the beautiful coastline.
