Converted Stables near St Nicholas, Pembrokeshire, Wales - Peaceful Location, Short Walk To The Beach
About Fiona Buchan
My family have owned Treseissyllt for nearly 60 years and used to farm there. We converted the old stables in 2004 into a very comfortable house which has been enjoyed by us, our children and many people since. We are obviously rather biased but we think that the Pembrokeshire coast is one of the most lovely and unspoilt parts of Britain. We live in Wiltshire and are happy to give you personal recommendations for the area.
Why Fiona Buchan chose Goodwick
Very spacious. Great drying facilities. Very Peaceful. Well situated for a family holiday having a beach within easy walking distance and access to the Pembrokeshire coast path.

The 7 of us (6 adults and 1 child - 3 generations) spent a great week at Treseissyllt Hafod. The Barn was VERY well equipped, and beautifully clean and ideal for us, particularly the large kitchen. Treseissyllt Hafod is situated only a 20 mins walk (for us, as we had a 3 year old with us!) from the lovely little beach of Aberbach. Our little grandson had a fabulous time there, quite happily playing for hours. On one occasion a seal appeared. Fantastic.
We all said that we would love to return.
Delighted to hear you had a great week. It is exactly the right time of year for seals in the bay. Many thanks for your review and we look forward to welcoming you again.
Quiet and comfortable.
Lived up to expectations. Good location,pleasant walk to the local beach. Secure garden ideal for young children.
Many thanks for your review. I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay.
Do come again.
wonderful holiday home
great location; walks to a couple of beaches, very quiet; barn has everything you need and has a great layout for two families
Delighted you had a lovely week and enjoyed your stay. Pembrokeshire is wonderful in so many ways and has something for everyone.
Super space, stylish fitting, equipped brilliantly
Stayed for a week with two families. 7 of us never felt cramped and we enjoyed having people over. Ample kitchen supplies and equipment (rangemaster) to properly cook 'home from home'. The photos do not show how big the space is inside and the mezzanine sitting room space is large and relaxing. Separate utility room and drying space great for wetsuits etc. Weber barbeque fab. The nearby walkable beaches(good 15 mins) are remote and never crowded - pebbles and sand mix - some surf - swell / wind conditions depending. Fishguard music festival a good bonus. Our kids 4-9yrs mix could play safely and visibly in the large garden. Thoroughly recommend. Tesco online delivers too.
Thank you for your great review which we much appreciate receiving. Delighted you had such a good week.

Two families visited four adults and four children aged seven to thirteen . The barn is a haven ! It's clean,convenient and spacious . The gardens and surrounding area is beautiful . A real central location for all to explore being walking or driving . It's on a farm where the children loved seeing the sheep or horses or just being able to play with Della the dog. The walk to the beach was stunning and well worth a visit at dusk to witness the sunset something our children wanted to do most nights !
Would thoroughly recommend this place a revisit from our family is a must .
A superbly located, well equipped, characterful property. The beach down the lane is well worth the 20 minute walk. Excellent for proximity to Newgale beach which became our favourite and would recommend visits to SOlva, St David's, Fishguard and many others beautiful locations. If you have a head for heights visit Whitesands Beach and if you have a dog take the coastal path to the neighbouring beach, it's small, secluded and very lovely. The boat trip to Ramsey Islands to see seals, puffins and porpoise are also well worth it. We took our dog on the Sheerwater trip and they were very happy to accommodate. The surf centre right on the beach at Newgale are very helpful and reasonable and can supply all the kit you need. If you go when the tide is out there are two fantastic beaches to visit for rock-pooling. The barn itself was charming, lovely fresh smelling linen and we were very impressed with the well stocked and spacious kitchen, characterful rooms and the bonus of a washing machine and dryer meant with a family of five we returned home with cases of clean clothes for a change! A super house, a lot of thought has gone into this property and what is provided. Would thoroughly recommend.
There is a lovely beach of Aberbach which is less than a 15 minutes walk down a private track. Shingle, sand at very low tide, rock pools and a stream. Great spot for watching seals.
Abermawr Beach also walking distance or 5 minutes drive away. Shingle and sand and good for surfing. This beautiful, unspoilt corner of Pembrokeshire is famous for its lovely scenery, cliffs, clean beaches, birds, wild flowers and wonderful walks. The 186 mile Pembrokeshire Coastal Path is universally regarded as one of Britain's outstanding walks.
5 miles to Fishguard Harbour and the ferries to Ireland. Railway stations at Goodwick (5 miles) and Haverfordwest (17 miles). Use of a car is recommended. A local coastal bus service - Stumble Shuttle - runs daily during the summer and stops in Tregwynt Woollen Mill carpark which is within walking distance. Just turn up.
