Set on the soothing rural outskirts of Haverfordwest, The Long Barn is an ideal escape for world-weary families, including their beloved dogs, to re-discover the joys of spending relaxed, fresh-air-filled time together.
The scenic ten-acre smallholding is home to two sustainably-crafted retreats: Cedar, which sleeps up to four guests, and Zinc, sleeping up to six. Both expertly combine raw, earthy materials – think slate, corrugated iron and stone – with touches of comfort and luxury – think rolltop bathtubs, vintage furnishings, and fresh coffee – that make a holiday feel special.
Light, bright, and beautiful, Cedar boasts enormous bi-fold doors that lets the sun stream inside… or you could simply throw them open and embrace the Great Outdoors, instead! The garden is home to a stargazing firepit that’s perfect for storytelling and marshmallow-toasting, and there’s an enclosed courtyard for drinks and conversation.
(Meanwhile, your four-legged friend will have their very own Dog House to unwind in, complete with homemade treats and an outdoor hot-and-cold doggy shower!)
If the weather is chilly, simply light the log-burner inside and settle into one of the squishy leather sofas, before finally making your way to your chosen bedroom – a double and a twin or superking (your choice), both with luxury en-suite facilities – for a sound night’s sleep.
Zinc, meanwhile, features a sociable rustic dining table for you to break bread around, with a super-stylish kitchen that may lead to arguments over who gets to cook! Once you’re finished, you can sink into a Chesterfield sofa and fire up the Smart TV for an epic, laughter-filled movie-night… what bliss.
You’ll have three bedrooms to choose from here. The ground-floor kingsize is ideal if you’re one for watching the sunrise, with French doors that open straight out onto the patio, and an elegant en-suite.Keep reading

There’s a twin room with a work desk on the ground floor, too, while upstairs awaits a twin or superking room with a rolltop bath and en-suite toilet (there’s a gorgeous family bathroom on the first floor, too – eliminating those awkward cross-legged queues!)
What to do once you’ve settled in? Well, with ten glorious, wide open acres of grounds to explore, you won’t have to stray far to find new things to do.
Get up close and personal with nature by taking a woodland walk by the stream, where you might catch sight of a kingfisher. Pack a tasty lunch and plant yourselves at one of the many picnic tables you’ll find in scenic spots, or borrow the bat detector for an intriguing evening stroll!
Meanwhile there are plenty of delights to discover in Pembrokeshire, which is home to the UK’s only coastal National Park. Head for one of the many local golden-sand beaches – including Newgale and Barafundle Bay – or take a breezy stroll along the iconic coast path for an unforgettable day out.
