The Old Cowshed has over 40 5* Trip Adviser reviews! It is situated in the centre of the Dale peninsula down a private drive and as its name suggests was once the Cowshed at the Butterhill estate in St Ishmaels. The spot is utterly tranquil and genuinely far from the maddening crowd! It has been lovingly renovated and now possesses the Wow factor with a central living area open to oak A frames beams, a minstrels gallery, three double bedrooms all en suite, underfloor heating throughout, a boot room for discarding muddy boots and even a wet room for washing down the dogs. There is a large breakfast kitchen with doors opening to the secluded and totally private rear garden with patio containing a large table and chairs.
There are TV's in both the kitchen and Lounge, a ferocious and large wood burning stove (free logs all year).
There is also free wifi and telephone.
The master bedroom suite contains a king size bed and the en-suite has a full size bath and a walk in shower. The other two bedrooms have twin beds. One has an en suite, again with a full size bath and a walk in shower. The other en suite has a walk in shower.
The barn has been designed to maximise space and light. The gallery is an ideal spot in which to soak up the sun while reading a good book.
The Old Cowshed is situated 2.5 miles from the seaside villages of Dale and Little Haven. The Dale peninsula benefits from the gulf stream and enjoys a microclimate with Dale recording more hours of sunshine then any other village in Wales. Dale is a mecca for sailing and coastal activities with opportunities for surfing, kayaking and fishing. Both villages have renowned eating houses. In 2015, The Griffin in Dale won second prize for the best tourist eating pub in all of Wales. Nearby, are some of Pembrokeshire's most spectacular beaches including Marloes (Snow White and the huntsman was filmed here!), West Dale, Litttle Haven, Broad Haven, Druidstone and Newgale.
The Old Cowshed is an ideal place to stay if you plan visiting Skomer Island- Skomer being home to a vast population of puffins and other sea birds. The embarkation point at St Martins Haven is just a ten minute drive away.
A little further up the coast is Solva and St Davids. Solva is a wonderfully pretty village with great pubs and restaurants, a woolen mill that is worth visiting and craft and art shops.
St Davids is the smallest city in the UK, St Davids cathedral is well worth a visit as is St Nons right out on the headland. Nearby is Whitesands beach, the blue lagoon at Aberiddy and the pretty fishing village of Porthgain.
Pembrokeshire also has its fair share of medieval castles - Pembroke, Manobier and Carew to name but few. The family can also enjoy the theme parks, animal farms, go karting and horse riding.
Pembrokeshire is a magical county and in 2012 was voted by National Geographic as the second best coastal destination in the world losing out only to Newfoundland in Canada!
