Why we've chosen Asheston Eco Barns

Surrounded by the beautiful Mid-Pembrokeshire countryside, in a wonderfully tranquil and secluded rural location on the doorstep of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, our comfortable 5-star eco barns are popular with couples, families and groups of friends throughout the year.

The 5 eco barns, converted from traditional stone farm buildings, each sleep a maximum of 4-7 guests. They include antique furniture, log burning stoves and private garden/patios with barbeque facilities. Newgale Sands, one of Britain's best beaches, is less than 4 miles away.

On the eco side of things, solar hot water systems and ground source heat pumps provide heating and hot water in all the barns. We also generate electricity from a wind turbine which stands in a corner of Asheston House’s 22 acres of open fields and woodland, and an extensive rainwater harvesting system provides water for toilet flushing, etc.

The eco barns are great if you simply want to stay in, relax and spend time together. And when you head out and about you'll discover a region that's fantastic for outdoor enthusiasts, history buffs and culture vultures alike.

Nearby St Davids (9 miles), with its impressive Cathedral and Bishop’s Palace, is the ancient ecclesiastical centre of Wales dating back to the golden age of the Celtic Church. The mini-city includes great galleries, surf shops and restaurants, and is renowned for its annual music festival. Meanwhile, Solva (6 miles), a historic seafaring community, is also well worth a visit. Great surfing, kitesurfing, sea kayaking, coasteering, horse riding and fishing can be enjoyed locally.

The local coastal waters are some of the warmest and cleanest in Britain. Some incredible bird and other wildlife watching opportunities can be found in Pembrokeshire too. Nature reserves dot the local countryside and the offshore Islands are well worth a visit - Ramsey Island is home to the largest grey seal colony in southern Britain, and don’t miss the puffins on Skomer!

The Pembrokeshire Coast Path passes close by, at Penycwm, and the Celtic Trail long distance cycle route passes within a mile of the eco barns, helping make this a great place to stay for hikers and cyclists. So renew yourself and the planet with a holiday or short break here at Asheston Eco Barns - we look forward to welcoming you soon.

Why is this a greener holiday?

To truly minimise the environmental impact, guests are encouraged to arrive by public transport: the nearest train station is Haverfordwest (10.5 miles). Taxis and pick-ups are available from Haverfordwest, but should be pre-booked.  Onsite the owners have taken a number of green measures to reduce the environmental impact of their tourism business. Some of these initiatives include use of wind and solar energy, rainwater harvesting and recycling.
