Property code: 85671

Romantic countryside barn conversion in 2 acres of private woodland garden with a private hot tub.

The perfect retreat for couples and canine companions, this rustic barn conversion enjoys a peaceful and romantic location in the heart of the Welsh countryside. With cosy accommodation complete with a warming wood burner for chilly evenings, a mezzanine bedroom that’s great for stargazing and no less than two acres of grounds to explore, this rural bolthole is sure to impress even the most discerning of dogs. Beyond the grounds lie miles of countryside walks along scenic footpaths, peaceful lanes, ancient woodland, and golden sandy beaches, all just waiting to be discovered.

Inside, find an impressive open-plan living area that’s full of charm, with exposed stone walls, a high vaulted ceiling and plenty of cosy corners for tired pooches to curl up in. After fun-filled days out, prepare romantic meals for two in the rustic yet well-equipped kitchen area. Dine at the farmhouse table before sinking into one of the inviting sofas in the lounge area beyond. While four-legged guests keep warm in front of the roaring woodburner, human friends can catch up on their favourite TV programmes. When it’s time for bed, leave the dogs to snooze on the cosy rugs as you climb the charming wooden ladder up to the mezzanine bedroom. This cosy and romantic space will ensure a restful night’s sleep ahead of another busy day. Outside, there is plenty for you and your pooch to do. Dine alfresco in the enclosed garden, explore the woodland beyond, spend an evening up at the firepit or indulge in a long soak in the hot tub.

A haven for dog walkers and cyclists alike, this peaceful pocket of West Wales is the perfect choice for canine loving couples. Just 3.5 miles away, the village of Llandysul offers a selection of shops, bars and restaurants for refuelling after a long walk. Once you have finished exploring the countryside, head just 12 miles north to reach the beautiful Ceredigion coast. With a selection of dog-friendly beaches to choose from including New Quay, Dolau and Cei Bach, all just 13 miles away, pups can enjoy a splash in the surf while owners look out for bottlenose dolphins.
