Overview

About the property

Large, luxury 4 bedroom barn on the outskirts of Ferryside, West Wales

Trecor Barns is situated on the outskirts of Ferryside, a small village 5 miles south of Carmarthen. It is a beautiful and peaceful location, close to Pembrey Country Park with its facilities (dry ski slope, toboggan run, crazy golf, miniature steam train, pitch and put, bike hire and miles of white sandy beach). The barn is newly converted to a very high standard and has excellent facilities, including, table tennis table, 42' flat screen TV with sky hd, PlayStation 2, iPod dock. The oak frame conservatory and open plan kitchen provide huge open spaces to relax and prepare family meals. The lounge - upstairs - houses the ping pong table at one end and the TV area at the other. The bedrooms are all large, two with ensuite facilities. Trecor is an excellent base to explore west Wales, just 40 minutes from the Gower and Pembroke surfing beaches and with easy access to Pembrokeshires many holiday attractions, it provides a tranquil base within a small and friendly village.

Trecor has been created by joining two barns together, one barn houses the games room and TV room - upstairs and the kitchen, utility and cloakroom downstairs, the other houses the 4 bedrooms. The two double bedrooms are downstairs. The barns are joined by an oak frame conservatory. We have had wheelchair users at the barn and they have said it has been good as it has downstairs bedrooms, there are however 4 steps to reach the level of the bedroom barn.

The barn kitchen is well equiped with Stanley range (similar to aga, but you can set your oven temperature and turn it on and off!), large gas hob, larder style fridge freezer, with ice machine and cold water dispenser, microwave, washing machine and tumble dryer. There is a level garden area for ball games. Close to the house is a 'secret' passageway leading down to a small river - young children love it. The village is a beautiful 1/2 mile walk down the lane with views across the estuary to Llansteffan Castle. The local shop provides basic essentials.

Why Maggie Hughes chose Ferryside

Fell in love with Trecor before we saw it, driving up the lane. Longest conversion but worth it in the end.

What makes this barn unique

The barns are peaceful, rural but not remote, they have their own micro climate

This is our 3rd family visit to Trecor. We absolutely love staying here. The barn is spacious, clean and comfortable. Maggie is so accommodating. The finishing cosy touches from fresh flowers and welcome hamper. We have only stayed for weekends and don't leave the barn, we have everything we need. Looking forward to our 4th visit in the future. Thanks again Maggie for letting stay in your beautiful home.

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

The property was ideal for our stay - 6 adults wanting somewhere comfortable, a bit off the beaten track.. Spacious, great kitchen and utility area. Nice conservatory and good outdoor space. The equipment was to a good standard.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay this barn is beautiful! The only thing I would say is the iPod docking stations could do with an update as it was for older phones. Perfectly clean and spacious. A great weekend for relaxing and spending time with family/friends

Wonderful place to stay in a beautiful environment . thank you for making our holiday so enjoyable.

  • 5 of 5

So many of us would have loved to stay longer so peaceful and quite. Amazing walking opertunites on your door step .Accommodation was to a very high standard and very well maintained pet friendly and a very helpful house keeper. Pendine sands is a great adventure for families also anyone with a intrested in motorcycle racing should check out the Pembrey circuit for events .Pembrey country park is also a great one to vist with kids or even grown up's. We booked for my wife's birthday on arrival she was overwhelmed the house the welcome pack was superb and a loverly touch .☺I will definitely be recommending this property owner to friends and colleagues .There was so much we could have done in the surrounding areas. Easy access to M4 made it a huge contender as so many of our friends had travelled to be with us .

.

Can't thank Maggie enough for such a wonderful experience.

..

Kind regards

Jody cole.

What a lovely place to spend your 70th birthday. Great location, superb accommodation and all one needs for a family stay. Excellent welcome pack! One or two slight issues, but dealt with thoroughly and speedily by the owner; thankyou. It's the type of place you don't want to leave!
