About Shayne Newlyn

I moved to Pembrokeshire in 2010 after falling in love with the beauty and peace of the area. i grew up in Zimbabwe and somehow Pembrokeshire reminds me of those halcyon days that were laid back with mainly outdoor living. One of my main passions is animals, and so I trained as an Animal Communicator which I now do as a profession.

Shayne Newlyn purchased this barn in 2010

Why Shayne Newlyn chose Haverfordwest

This is my own home. I enjoy travelling and going to visit my partner who lives in North Wales, hence me renting out my home whilst I stay with him.

What makes this barn unique

Extremely quiet and peaceful, no traffic noise whatsoever.

Spacious, light, beautifully furnished and equipped.

Suitable for families and couples and dog friendly (by prior discussion)

Relaxing stay in countryside location

  • 4 of 5

A quiet, relaxing family holiday in this homely barn conversion. The facilities are spacious and comfortable. We explored fabulous pembrokeshire including north and south coast beaches, coastal paths and villages. This is a very quiet, rural spot, requiring a car, which suited us fine. We enjoyed spotting buzzards, a woodpecker and bats near the cottage. Nearest places we frequented were St Davids and The sloop Inn at porthgain. We loved seeing the seal in the harbour at Abercastle too!

A lovely home for the weekend. Butterflies and bumble bees everywhere in the pretty gardens. Lovely and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of St Davids. Went to Sloop Inn had an lovely meal, highly recommended.

A very nice place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house is well decorated, good size and there was a lot of space for me and my partner, our two kids and a dog.

The neighbourhood is very quiet and John and his wife next door are very nice.

The location is very close to Porthgain and to St David's-a very good base to explore North Pembrokeshire.

Shayne, the owner, was more than helpful-Sorry Shayne, we did not manage to use the firepit/bbq as the place was a sun trap (we were lucky to get just one rainy day during our visit); however, we did water your plants and fed the birds-by the way, the cherries and tomatoes need harvesting!

Owner's Response: Thank you for lovely and positive review Vanessa. Thank you for looking after my house so beautifully too. I am so happy you had a wonderful stay in The Peaceful Sanctuary and that you enjoyed the sunny terrace and the abundant birds, I wish you'd eaten the tomatoes and the other vegetables I've grown too! Come back again next year!
