Arch Barn Holiday Cottage in St Twynnells, Nr Bosherston | Stackpole
Arch Barn is a delightful barn conversion set down a private lane with just 4 other properties in rolling countryside within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, yet only 3 miles from the stunning coastline and the villages of Bosherston and Stackpole.
Once a granary, it has been sympathetically renovated. It retains all its original features and character with wonderful beams and wooden floors. The spacious kitchen/diner has a high arched ceiling with exposed beams, and has been beautifully fitted with a Country-style kitchen and large farmhouse table where you can enjoy leisurely family meals. French doors open out to the enclosed courtyard, prettily planted and a real sheltered sun trap where you can dine alfresco or enjoy a barbecue on a summer’s evening.
The sitting room is perfect for relaxing with comfortable sofas, fantastic exposed beams and newly installed wood burner offering lots of character. From here lies the master bedroom with a wonderful super kingsize bed which can be unlinked to make two single beds, the choice is yours. It makes a magical retreat with its lovely arched window overlooking the courtyard and white washed beams.
Stairs lead up from the sitting room to two further bedrooms and a bathroom nestling in the eaves above. The double bedroom is a romantic retreat with exposed A-frame beams and bespoke high kingsize bed, while the twin bedroom opens to the original stone steps of the barn which gives another spot to sit and enjoy a coffee in the morning.
The area within the National Trust Stackpole estate abounds in wildlife and keen walkers will enjoy exploring the country lanes and footpaths. A mile walk down lanes takes you to a permissive pathway across the Range and on to the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, this area of the Coastline is stunning, with hidden bays and sandy beaches, discover the 6th Century St Govans Chapel built into the cliff face and the famous Green Bridge of Wales. Or why not visit The Walled Gardens managed by the charity, Mencap, where they have a long tradition of growing local produce for the table. The village of Bosherston is only 3 miles away, enjoy refreshments at the St Govans Inn pub or a traditional afternoon tea at the Olde Worlde tea rooms. A walk round the Lily Ponds to Broadhaven South beach should not be missed. The nearest pub is the Stackpole Inn, highly recommended for food and is only 2 miles away or why not try the Boat House Cafe at Stackpole Quay, popular for kayaking, coasteering and with water sport enthusiasts, while just a 15 minute walk takes you to the beautiful Barafundle Beach.
There are a further choice of fantastic beaches to explore all within a short drive including Freshwater West, Freshwater East and West Angle Bay. The historic town of Pembroke offers a range of facilities, prettily set against the back drop of the mill pond and famous medieval Castle which is well worth a visit.
Arch Barn is an ideal holiday retreat, whatever the season.

* Bosherston is located close to Castlemartin military firing range. The range covers an area of 2400 hectares on the South Pembrokeshire coast within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. The border of the range is approx 800m away. The Pembrokeshire Coast Path, a National Trail, crosses Range East (during non-firing periods) and inland along 8km of roads past Range West. When firing is in progress the road diversion through Bosherston provides a longer walk. Vehicle access is available to Stack Rocks and St Govan’s Chapel. Both of these are popular with sightseers, climbers and fishermen. The sea cliffs provide some of the best cliff climbing in the UK. Range West and the inland part of Range East are generally not open to the public. However, the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority/Defence Estates organises regular accompanied walks into this area. Many other groups are also catered for through annual safety and conservation briefings. These access opportunities are only available during non-firing periods.
