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.

Absolutely beautiful house in immaculate condition

This house is amazing, we were a group of eight adults and one child and it was perfect. Everything we needed was there and the house itself is beautiful. A lovely welcome basket was the finishing touch! Thanks so much for a wonderful weekend

Absolutely amazing, we had a great time.

  • 5 of 5

We arranged a surprise 50th birthday for a friend and eight of us stayed at Ferryside. We had a themed weekend (Gnomes and Christmas). On Friday evening we wore gnome fancy dress - hilarious and would thoroughly recommend. Full English breakfast on Saturday then visit to Pembrey Sands on Saturday, glorious weather. Saturday evening was all about Christmas with a four course fine dining experience cooked by one of our party. We dressed for the occasion (men wore black tie and ladies posh frocks). We even had a Christmas Tree / blow up Santa / Christmas music / Christmas pass the parcel. Full English again on Sunday then visit to Tenby (glorious weather again). We all endeavour to return and loved the property.
