“Thank you for the best stay, your home was beautiful and had everything we needed and more. We would love to come back and stay in the near future Many thanks Dawn :)”

Dawn H,

We enjoyed a wonderful week at The Haybarn. The cottage is beautiful inside and out. We had exceptionally good weather so spent our evenings outdoors using the fire pit and the camping chairs in the garage. The kitchen was very well equipped as we are at home every night and had everything we needed. The views were fabulous and very relaxing. Can't wait to return to the house and this special area.

Mrs R,

We have stopped in many places in Wales and this property and location far outweighs any other we have been too . Beautiful views, very comfortable, spotless and well equipped accommodation

Mrs H,

The Haybarn is a special place. After months of lockdown it was our first escape from home and it was balm for the soul. It's a lovely house in a spectacular place. The view is breathtaking. The garden is huge and lovely. The hosts, Wendy and Paul, are incredibly thoughtful and considerate. There are numerous laminated guides for walks and trips to amazing beaches and bike rides. It was all wonderful and we feel very lucky to have stayed at the Haybarn. Highly recommended
