About West Barn

West Barn is a delightful, detached, stone long barn, set at the end of a rural no-through lane in the quiet hamlet of Lochvane which comprises only five other properties. Beautifully renovated, it retains its original charm with contemporary furnishings. The barn enjoys rural views and has a large, enclosed lawned garden with access to a further 1.5 acre paddock and pond beyond; children will enjoy a game of cricket or bowls on the specially landscaped area.

The well-equipped, but rustic country kitchen with range cooker and farmhouse table is ideal for leisurely family meals. 1 step up is the quirkily furnished sitting room with its vaulted beamed ceiling and French doors to the garden. Stairs lead up to a galleried bedroom nestling in the eaves, while a corridor off the sitting room gives access to 3 other cosy bedrooms on the ground floor.

Newgale with its long, sandy beach popular for surfing and other water sports, can be tried at the hire shop, only 2 miles away; a pub and 2 cafes on the beachside add to your enjoyment. Join the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path which passes through Lochvane and explore the labyrinth of amazing walks around the cliffs to Solva or Newgale with no need for a car, while the sandy beach of Pointz Castle is only minutes away. A visit to Pointz Castle ice cream is a must for any holiday, you will drive passed on your way to your cottage. They have a wide variety of yummy flavours to try.

A short car journey will take you to the tiny city of St Davids with its historic Cathedral and Bishops Palace; boat trips from St Justinians to the bird sanctuary of Ramsey Island are not to be missed. The picturesque harbour village of Solva with pubs, restaurants and galleries clustering round the pretty narrow inlet is well worth a visit.

A wonderful cottage for families and friends to enjoy all year round.

Care needed with children as there is a pond located in the paddock, accessed through a locked gate.

Approach to West Barn is via a mile long single track lane off an A-road. West Barn can be accessed by a 5 bar gate at the east end of the property, leading to ample parking area (up to 4 cars) or via a 5 bar gate at the west end of the property (space for 2 cars). Car parking space at either end of West Barn is gravelled. Please do not park in the lane. At the main entrance, there is a small step up into the kitchen. The kitchen has extensive worktops and a range cooker with low level ovens and grill. Through the kitchen another small step up leads through a door to the atrium style lounge. The floor is carpeted throughout with the exception of the kitchen and bathrooms which have laminate flooring. Through the lounge, a door leads to the corridor (with a very slight change in the level of the floor, but no step) giving access to three bedrooms, (1 double bedroom with en-suite with shower cubicle), a second double bedroom, one room with bunk beds and a separate bathroom with a shower over the bath. All rooms are on the same level. Stairs in the lounge lead to an upstairs bedroom with handrail on stairs. There is a step up to the bedroom with restricted headroom. The bedroom is open plan (no door). There is also a small cloakroom (whb/wc) upstairs with a step up and restricted headroom (opposite bedroom). There is external lighting to the front and rear of the property. Landline telephone is installed. TV, DVD player and stereo system are all operated from a single remote control. Mainly lawned garden extend to 1/3rd acre and is accessed through a gate at both ends of the property. There is a gravelled area with a step up to a patio. A double door leads from the lounge to the patio over a small step. Railway sleepers separate the gravelled area from the lawn. The side garden is also part gravelled and mainly lawned. At the bottom of the garden, two gates lead to West Barn paddock (1.225 acres) which is fenced all the way round (however small dogs could fit through). The gates are kept padlocked for health and safety reasons due to the large pond in the paddock. All gates leading into the paddock have ‘Danger – Deep Water’ warning signs fitted. Well behaved dogs and guide dogs welcome.
