Not only that we are proud to offer disabled accessible holidays for you too. The barns have been rebuilt to the highest standard of finish while retaining the traditional character to provide a beautiful setting for a family holiday, whilst having a minimal impact on the environment. The five individual barns all benefit from state of the art environmentally friendly technology including a wind turbine, solar hot water, geothermal heating and rainwater recycling. They have features such as oak beams, natural slate and limestone floors and eco friendly clay paint and are furnished with antiques and log burning stoves. We are proud to have been recognised as amongst the most eco friendly holiday cottages in the UK & to maintain that we are constantly audited by the Green Dragon standard environmental management system.
Asheston Eco Holiday Barns offers a secluded and peaceful environment as it is surrounded by 22 acres of open fields and woodland and has magnificent country views towards Roch Castle. Newgale blue flag beach is only 3 miles away. The barns are located down a private 1/4 mile driveway and this provides a secluded and safe environment free from passing traffic for children to play. To the front of the barns there is a large grassed area for relaxing and playing. There is a wildlife pond which is fenced off to provide safety for children. There is also a dedicated enclosed children's play area with swings, a slide and climbing frame.

Despite the rainy weather in november we had a lovely time at The Barn. The accommodation is very good with two lovely bedroom each having their own bathroom. The cottage has underfloor heating which makes it lovely and warm. A Well appointed kitchen was at hand to prepare the odd meal in. Brilliant time was had by all. Rating 4 out of 5, Dec 2015.
Our family stayed in the cart house & stables. Karen was lovely & welcoming from enquiry, during our stay & even unpacking our food delivery! Couldn't have asked for more. Hamper was a lovely treat and also the logs for the fire. Had some kitchen essentials so we didn't have to bring as much as we did. Outside area was great with a large play area for the kids and lots of toys. There were lots of books, toys and board games to keep everyone entertained when it was too wet and windy outside. The kids had fun helping to build the fire! The ensuite was lovely, roll top bath and double shower. Soft towels and toiletries. Rating 5 out of 5, Oct 2015.
Excellent accommodation with welcoming owners in a wonderful location. Quiet, relaxing holiday in comfort, close to the best of the sightseeing in the area. Eco heating system really works well. Lovely gardens and play area. Rating 5 out of 5, Sep 2015.
I visited Eco Barns at the beginning of September. I'm a manual wheelchair user, and able to transfer easily. When I usually look for accessible accommodation, it is clinical looking. Not here! Eco Barns provide luxury and comfort at the highest level, with aesthetics and function being just as important as one another. The double bed was an absolute dream to sleep in, there was plenty of room for me to use the kitchen and bathroom with ease, the car parking was spacious (although on gravel) and the entrance to the barn was ramped at a low gradient. The grounds outside the barns are open and spacious, and I was even treated to a welcome hamper full of local produce! I'd recommend Eco Barns to anyone, but expecially those looking for an inclusive treat! Rating 5 out of 5, Sep 2015.
Couldn't have been better! We were there for a long weekend, late September. We got just what we expected from the advertising web pages etc. Excellently converted barns and stables, warm, dry comfortable and plenty of hot water. Rating 5 out of 5, Sep 2015.
We had a lovely visit. The host was there to greet us and was very welcoming. Everything was there to make this a lovely place to relax and unwind. The barns conversions are beautiful. we hope to go again. Rating 5 out of 5, Sep 2015.
We stayed in The Cart House. It is delightful. Stunning views complemented the charming and very comfortable living room. There is plenty of space everywhere. It is warm and welcoming. The beds are so comfy and we slept beautifully in the crisp white beautifully laundered linen. We were very impressed with the generous welcome basket. Our hosts have really thought of everything. The bathrooms are huge and well designed. The whole place was spotless. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you could wish for - and some! I would love to live there all year round and give it the highest recommendation. Rating 5 out of 5, Sep 2015.
If you want a touch of fine living in the middle of no where, than Asheston Eco Barns in Pembrokeshire, West Wales, could be exactly what you are looking for. The complex is a few miles from anywhere and consists of a number of purpose built apartment stylised upon a rural farming environment. I stayed in the 'Stables', a two storey apartment that could comfortably sleep a family of seven, so it was amazingly spacious for just myself and my PA. It had rural pre-war farmhouse décor elegantly balanced with all the mod cons you could ever need on holiday. It was certainly a home away from home and compared to many very posh hotels I have spent a night in for work, it was certainly the most relaxing night I have ever had away from home. What I really liked was the amount of time and detail that had been spent getting the apartment right. There were beautiful ornaments everywhere you looked, and lots of useful things to occupy any family like books, puzzles, games and toys. I was also delighted with the Welcome pack provided which included a bottle of wine, fresh strawberries, welsh cheese and other goodies. The owner reassured me this was what everyone received, not just reviewers like myself. The accessibility was to the expected standards but it did not go the extra mile, although it did not need to go the extra mile to be suitable for most guests. Upstairs was upstairs, which gave my personal assistant a nice break. There was a nice walk-in shower downstairs and the apartment key accessible feature was its spacious open plan environment. If I had to make one criticism, it would be that the free wi-fi was only available on one side of the apartment. Along with the fact this complex was outside any mobile signal, it could make people feel isolated from their 21st century lives, which is not always a bad thing. Rating 5 out of 5, Sep 2015.
We spent two weeks at The Grain Store and enjoyed our time there. The tranquil location was just what we were after. Our kids (7 and 4) loved the play area and there was plenty of space to kick a ball, fly a kite and run around. There's also plenty to do in the area. The owners were welcoming and helpful. We had a problem with the washing machine and they came and sorted it out the next day. The negatives were that the mattress on the upstairs bed was past its comfortable life and needs to be replaced. Also, a lot of the kitchen crockery, glasses, utensils etc needed washing before we could use them because they and the shelves they were on were dusty and / or greasy. There's also a big American style fridge-freezer that's quite old consequently noisy when it's running. We had to go during school holidays so it didn't feel like particularly great value. We'd recommend this as a place to stay but during the cheaper times of the year. Rating 4 out of 5, Aug 2015.
Great place really enjoyed our week break here. Close to really great beaches locally only a few miles away. Great children's play areas and lots of space to run off energy for your small ones. A bit disappointed due to poor gardening, rose bushes overgrown at the rear and the grass needed a good cut - perhaps part of the ECO though. Rating 4 out of 5, Aug 2015.
Spotless clean and very well furnished and equipped. Perfect location for peace and quiet. They have thought of everything, even down to the complimentary coals and fire lighters. We would certainly consider coming back with grandchildren. Barns beautifully converted and really very Eco! We will be back. Rating 5 out of 5, Jul 2015.
Asheston House Eco Barns are 5 star plus. Karen goes to incredible lengths to make sure your stay is comfortable, clean and relaxing. The barns are Eco friendly, set in acres of well maintained farmland, yet a short drive gets you to Newgale Beach. This was our second visit and we will visit again. A real home from home.. Thank you very much for many happy memories. Rating 5 out of 5, Jun 2015.
This was a great holiday location. The rooms were very comfortable. The hosts were lovely - responsive & welcoming. The entire property is stunning. The ecological systems are impressive. We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our stay. Rating 5 out of 5, Jun 2015.
Asheston eco barns are five magnificently converted barns about 5 miles from Newgale beach. They are beautifully appointed with log fires, underfloor heating and every conceivable toy/game/buggy ride for children. They are in their own grounds a quarter of a mile from the main road , so are very safe foe children. There is a play area with climbing frames, a pirate ship and zip wire for the kids. All the barns have outside barbecues and the welcome packs are excellent. Each barn has an interesting range of artifacts and interesting curios and a good selection of books. I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone. This is the second time I have been along with about 20 family members of various ages. Jan, Rating 5 out of 5, May 2015.
Four adults and a baby for May Bank holiday weekend. Perfect retreat... views only of rolling hills and the odd tractor. Close to the coast, St. Davids etc We stayed in 'The Cowshed'..with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The property is comfortably furnished throughout and the wood burning fire adds character to what is a very well equipped and nicely detailed conversion. We had a great time and will recommend to friends and family. Rating 5 out of 5, May 2015.
Great holiday home and venue, we had a wonderful time at the Cow Shed recently. We can strongly recommend this beautiful holiday home & setting, a modern link to an old familiar farm dwelling. Service and facilities provided by Karen & Jeff were outstanding, we wish them well on the existing and new development situated 12 miles from Haverfordwest, with a coastal run some 6 miles from the facility. We'll be back I'm sure. Rating 4 out of 5, May 2015.
A really wonderful converted barn with a beautiful view. It was spotless, tasteful and so friendly. We loved every second of our stay here and for six city girls, this was the perfect, tranquil get away we were hoping for. Rating 5 out of 5, May 2015.
Lovely week, we had the barn. We loved the decor, the barn was well equipped and the playground was great for my 2 kids who loved the zip-wire. The welcome hamper was much appreciated. Karen and Jeff were friendly and helpful. Wifi was iffy at times but this was no bad thing as it forced us to put down our tablets and actually spend time as a family ! Well located for St Davids and surrounding areas, we would highly recommend Asheston. Rating 5 out of 5, Apr 2015.
Just back from a lovely weekend at the ""cowshed". The barn was fab. We were 6 adults and found the barn to have plenty of space. It was well equipped and maintained. Location was good very close to new gale, solva and St Davids. Would highly recommend. Rating 5 out of 5, Mar 2015.
