Welcome to The Old Cowshed
The Old Cowshed is situated in the centre of the Dale peninsula up 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 is now a stunning living space with a central living area open to oak A frames , 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 and a ferocious large wood burning stove (free logs all year). There are no additional...

We provide a very full information pack prior to guests arrival. The key will be available in the location identified in the information pack. Although we live in another barn on the estate, we aim not to intrude upon our guests and therefore you are assured total privacy as we employ a fairly 'hands off; approach although we are always available if any issues arise.

We couldn't believe our luck in finding this property. It is truly amazing. Loads of space for everyone with very stylish, comfortable decor throughout. All the equipment, and more, that you could possibly want in a home from home. Fabulous restaurants nearby.

We had a great holiday at The Old Cowshed. It was clean and of a very high standard, and was even more spacious than the photos show! Hugh and Barbara were friendly but also not intrusive at all. Our boys loved the back garden and we loved the views. Great walks from the doorstep and several beautiful secluded beaches within...

About the neighborhood
It is home to the most stunning beaches. Close by is Marloes Sands where Snow white and the Huntsman was recently filmed. Also near is West Dale, St Brides, Little Haven, Broadhaven, Druidstone and Newgale. Skomer Island - home to a vast puffin and manx shearwater population is also close by with the embarkation point only ten minutes drive away at Martins Haven. Little Haven with its bustling pubs and restaurants (in Summer!) is equally close as is Dale a center for water sports including windsurfing and Kayaking. A visit to St Davids - the smallest (and prettiest!) city in the UK is a must with its magnificent Cathedral and Bishops Palace. There is lots to do for both adults and children, castles to explore (e.g Pembroke, Carew, Manobier), Childrens' parks (Folly Farm and Oakwood) nu... more
