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.

Lovely property, ideal for a family of families such as ours, with ample space but social areas too.

  • 5 of 5

We were blessed with a week of largely very good weather, which meant we were able to spend much of our time outside enjoying the local countryside and coastline. We enjoyed the beaches (and sea) at Ferryside itself, as well as Oxwich and Pembrey. We also enjoyed pitch and putt at Gowerton and Frisbee golf at Pembrey, which is a lovely large coastal parkland, where we also had fun with a variety of bikes we hired. We largely catered for ourselves, taking turns with meals and the kitchen was ideal for this, with a great provision of equipment and facilities. The table tennis, toys and bits and pieces in the lounge provided a wealth of treasure to be investigated by adults and children alike, and all of us enjoyed our time at Trecor very much.

Fantastic property - very good value for money.

  • 4 of 5

The photo's on the website don't show the details in the cottage and I think this makes a great first impression. The kitchen was the hub and best feature of the barn. The biggest bedroom did feel quite dark due to dark furniture and curtains but that's really down to personal taste. All the family enjoyed their stay and the playroom was a big hit!

Party of 12 for Mum's 50th Birthday (2 small children)

  • 5 of 5

I struggled to find a property that was big enough for our party and wasn't an absolutely extortionate price for a weekend. However, with Trecor Barns we found it all! Maggie was absolutely great with the booking and arranging for extra beds to be in the house for 2 little extras (5 and 6 year old).

We booked the accommodation as a surprise weekend for my Mum's 50th Birthday and it really was fab. The barn is absolutely stunning and for the price I really was shocked at how nice it was. We had no complaints what so ever and we will definitely be visiting again.

The photos on the website really doesn't do the barn justice.. It is amazing.

We can't wait to come back and we're already thinking of booking for next April for a family member's 30th Birthday weekend.

Thank you for a fab weekend in an absolutely stunning property.

This is the second time I have stayed at Trecor Barns and it certainly won't be the last! We were a party of 3 couples. The house is beautiful, with plenty of open space making it a great environment to play games, relax and enjoy all the house has to offer. The orangery is so relaxing to sit in of an evening and play games with friends. It has a good sized TV upstairs with sky sports so we were able to enjoy some Super 12 rugby in the morning before heading off to Tenby for the day. The kitchen is well equipped and spacious. The bedrooms (2 with en suites) are all good sized and comfortable. The grounds around the house are lovely. Everything is good! Maggie was also very helpful on the phone a few weeks before we stayed when we asked to amend the booking slightly, for which we were all grateful. Great weekend, great house, and hope it is repeated many times. Thanks.
