Why we've chosen Pembrokeshire Cowshed and Wagon

This delightful cottage has been converted from a stone dairy and cowshed by author/ TV presenter Griff Rhys Jones on his coastal farm in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

SHOWMANS WAGGON:

In summer months (April 1st to 31 October) you have access to Griff's restored circus Showman's Wagon, located fairly close to Pembrokeshire Cowshed in it's own little field. You can use it as an en-suite romantic bedroom, or 'camping' for older children. However, it is not suitable for young children who need to be supervised, as it is the other side of a barn and not visible from Pembrokeshire Cowshed. Panelled living, dining and kitchen area - with decorative etched Venetian style mirrors.

  • Dining table with seats surrounding on 3 sides (seating for 4). Flat screen TV for use with DVDs only (no television signal).
  • Galley kitchen - with small sink, 2-ring induction hob, microwave cooker and fridge
  • Separate bedroom with small double bed (110 x 180) and wardrobe, space for cases etc. under bed. It is also possible to make a single bed from the seating area in the living room.
