The Workshop Barn is located in magical stunning scenery. Only 1.5 miles from Newport with its restaurants, we are a stones throw from Carningli mountain, the Preseli's and the ancient woodlands of Ty Canol, but still only 3 miles from the beach. Just breath in the fresh air and relax. Private with self check in, our Barn is the perfect place to stay.

The space
The Barn is located in the grounds of a main house but completely separate with it's own outdoor area. Beautifully furnished with an exotic mix of modern and antique furniture and textiles. It's thoughtfully equipped for all your needs so that you can make the most of your stay in Pembrokeshire. The homely kitchen has an Irish dresser with flagstone floors and is the perfect place for organic cooking . The living area is open plan with a wood burning fire to keep you cosy in the evenings and there is underfloor heating as well as hot water whenever you need it. When the sun is out you can open the patio doors to a south-facing private outdoor area for eating alfresco. The galleried bedroom is snug and romantic with warm Welsh blankets & Afghan textiles. We try and provide you with everything you might need and this includes a starter log pack, towels ( not beach towels), toiletries and a welcome basket of local produce. The barn is beautifully furnished with local art and all my favorite things. There are books to enjoy as well. It's the perfect peaceful place for slow living.
The parking is shared with the main house on the same property and whilst the outside area of The Barn is separate and private it is not fenced off if you have a pet.

Where you’ll be

Cilgwyn, Wales, United Kingdom

The Barn is in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, world renowned for its outstanding natural beauty and the only coastal park in the UK. Cilgwyn is in the heart of this in the north of the county which is quite different and quieter to the south; full of rugged exceptionally magical landscapes, wooded valleys, stunning coast, eccentric and interesting characters, and I swear a few wood fairies!. The Bluestones of Stonehenge were hewn from the rock only a few miles away, and the whole area is full to brimming with ancient history and rich with legends. This is a very special and magical location. You can explore the enchanted Ty Canol Woods, the Gwaun Valley and the wilderness of the Preseli Hills. Discover ancient trails, Iron Age Fort, Neolithic burial sites and places to stand and stare at the glorious views. Pentre Ifan burial chamber is close by and if you look closely you'll find a secret hidden one on the property! There are wild horses on the mountain and it's a fantastic walk to the top. For a quick beer to recover try the Bluestone Brewery which is only 2 minutes walk away and is open most days until 4pm.

Whilst Newport is close by, The Barn is actually in the parish of Nevern where there is an ancient Pilgrims Path used for hundreds of years by pilgrims making their way to St Davids. The light here is different, and the air is clean and unpolluted. Look out for the amazingly clear night sky giving a fantastic view of the stars. There are so many fantastic walks on the doorstep it’s impossible to describe them all. Likewise, there are many beaches and secret coves that you can explore from the coastal path which is only a 5 minute drive away and during the summer is accessible via a local bus company that runs a shuttle service along the coast for walkers. The Preseli Hills are also a magical place, with numerous neolithic sites dotted throughout the area and many footpaths and bridle ways to explore.

Newport is a pretty seaside town which has become famous for its array of cafes, restaurants and shops including a whole food shop, butchers, hardware store, pharmacy, newsagents, craft collective, antique centre, Spar, Post Office, outdoor clothes shop, fantastic art gallery and MondY street market. Newport also has a stunning large sandy beach with dunes and is great for swimming.

The Barn is also only a 10 minute drive from the old county town of Cardigan, which has 2 supermarkets (Tesco and Aldi) and a variety of shops along its pretty and active high street. It's also worth a visit to Theatre Mwldan, which hosts a great selection of films, theatre, comedy and music events. For adventurous types there are a wealth of activities on offer, from sea kayaking and coasteering, to paragliding and surfing. To the south of Newport you can drive to St Davids the smallest city in the UK and visit the Cathedral, perhaps do some surfing at Whitesands beach and explore further down the coast past Newgale beach, which also has beautiful windswept beaches and coves.

Visitors to the area are often struck by something else that is rarely mentioned in the tourist brochures, and that is the warmth and diversity of the local people and the extended community who have come here from afar. There are all sorts of people who have visited the area and haven’t left because they loved it so much! We live in a very welcoming and interesting community and we all hope you'll enjoy your stay here.

I am a busy mother of two recently returned to Newport from Africa. I am really enjoying the beautiful landscape and atmosphere of Newport and Cilgwyn where I grew up. My partner John and I really enjoy creating a homely place for people to stay and we love to see our guests happy. During this very challenging time with the Coronovirus we are disinfecting the property thoroughly between bookings. I have two places you can book. A cottage called Watamu and its annexe The Workshop Barn and they are both the perfect place to get away and be private. If you would like more information about how we are ensuring that properties are clean and hygienic to stay in please don’t hesitate to message me and I will do my best to answer any queries you might have. best wishes Sue and John
