About Emma McMillan & Mathew Bull

Mathew and I ( Emma) have lived in Pembrokeshire all of our lives. We have businesses in Saundersfoot and another holiday let property, also in Saundersfoot ( ref 819222) which has proved to be very popular. We live approximately 10 minutes away from The Barn so are close to hand at all times. We have 3 children (14-18) and have experienced all the local attractions (several times!) if any advice is needed!

Why Emma McMillan & Mathew Bull chose Tenby

This property is in one of the most sought after areas of Tenby. The fantastic location provides a wonderful, tranquil, rural setting whilst still being close to the beautiful beaches and all the other amenities that Tenby and the surrounding area has to offer. It is unique in that it offers a large enclosed garden and private parking for up to 3 cars - a rarity for Tenby! Perfect for walkers and beach lovers who like to be within walking distance of the cafes and shops! The perfect retreat!

What makes this barn unique

We have lovingly renovated and furnished this property over the past year. It provides a luxurious retreat with good quality furnishings and all the mod cons needed to make your holiday really enjoyable. It is open plan with high ceilings, a large enclosed garden &patio, and plenty of parking ( a rarity in Tenby!)

Lovely "shabby chic" cottage on a hill

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at The Barn, it's a lovely cottage with plenty of room and only 10 minutes from the beach and town (albeit downhill and uphill!). The weather was glorious and the thick stone walls and slate flooring kept the house cool; it was lovely. The one downside was the fact that the reception for the camp site was at the bottom of the road past the Barn - everyone had to pass the Barn (down and back) in order to register there, making the garden not very private to sit in. Unfortunately, most campers thought the Barn itself was the reception and they would stop their vehicle at the side of the house to look over the fence to ask, or some people even came into the garden and up to the door to enquire. Better signs are needed, making it clear which house is the reception - although that would not stop the constant traffic... Still, a great holiday was had by all.

Excellent holiday cottage conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

We (2 adults, 2 kids 11 and 12 plus dog) had a fantastic stay at this cottage. It is right on the coastal path, 10 mins walk to Tenby North beach (great family beach, but no dogs). We walked into Tenby and back each evening for dinner and had some great meals. The cottage is a good size and nicely decorated. Beds very comfy. We only ate breakfast here so can't comment on kitchen equipment. We used the hot tub most days. You had to plan ahead as it took 3 hours ish to heat up. Pictures on the website are accurate and owner responded quickly to my emails. Only minor niggles - one of the toilet seats was broken and there were very few glasses, although lots of wine glasses! We would definitely recommend.

Welcoming, peaceful retreat in stunning convenient

  • 5 of 5

The Barn is a wonderful place to stay, it offers a beautifully decorated, clean, well equipped and relaxing living environment as well as an extremely attractive and peaceful setting very close to Tenby town.

The owners were extremely helpful and quick to respondwhen we contacted them about extra towels and have made every effort to make the cottage a lovely place to stay.

The parking and proximity to Tenby is a rare and valuable bonus as the town is lovely but busy. At the barn you can have the best of both worlds as truly fantastic walks as well as easy access to shops and restaurants are readily available.

We would heartily recommend this property to anyone without hesitation and very much hope to return some time in the future.

Half term happiness

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful clean , spacious modern cottage, tucked away but with easy access to the north beach and Tenby town.

Spotless ,well equipped and comfy beds..

Contacted owner in our return as we had managed to leave something and she offered to post back to us straight away.

Plenty of cafes and restaurants, further afield Saundersfoot is a pretty little bay to visit. Lots in the area for children to explore.

Would love to return in the summer months.

Awesome Fantastic Beautiful Ideal!

  • 5 of 5

We've been to Tenby for the last three years, usually staying in apartments near the beaches. We wanted a bit more space this year and The Barn seemed ideal. On arrival, we were gobsmacked by the beauty of the place. It's up a hill from the town, but only half a mile from the shops (easy on the way down!). There is parking and a lovely enclosed garden which was ideal for our dog (we could let him out the door without worrying he would run off). The open plan living, dining and kitchen area is well equipped with everything you could need (including a DVD/Bluray player!). The slate floor is heated which makes the place warm and cozy (we didn't need to use the woodburner). Three lovely bedrooms ideal for us and the three kids. The main bathroom is nice and airy and well equipped and there is a separate cloakroom and loo (again ideal when you have more than one child!). The owners have also put in an "eco" hot tub in the garden, and there is a small shed with BBQ, chair cushions etc.

The Barn is far enough outside of town for it to be so peaceful. Sitting outside in the evening, watching the sun go down is just fantastic. And once the woodburner heats the hot tub (it did take a good 3-4 hours!) it's just lovely to sit in there listening to the owls hoot. The Pembrokeshire coastal path is just to the side of the property, and would recommend a walk across to Waterwynch beach - a very secluded beach with a private house on it, but at low tide lots of rocks to climb, caves to explore etc (and the house is nearly £6000 for a weekend stay!).

Tenby is a really beautiful place - fantastic beaches (our favourite is South Beach - dog friendly, and small car park right on the beach). Plenty of little bistros, cafes and restaurants in the town. We always visit Folly Farm too - not sure if this place is an amusement park, farm or zoo - probably all three, but the kids loved it.

All in all, a really lovely place to stay, well equipped, clean, quiet and in an ideal location. Thanks Emma - we may well be back!
