About Swallows Rest

A semi-detached beautifully converted barn set in a residential complex of 6, around a large gravel courtyard on a quiet rural lane outside Croesgoch.

Swallows Rest has been finished to a high standard; comfortably and stylishly furnished it retains original features with some changes of levels. The large, beautifully fitted farmhouse kitchen with traditional style Aga is ideal for family meals and leads to a sheltered, paved patio and enclosed, lawn garden ideal for alfresco dining and for children to play; while the light spacious lounge has a wood burning stove for chillier evenings and plenty of comfortable seating, open tread stairs lead to the gallery master bedroom nestling in the eaves with ensuite shower room. 3 steps from the hall leads to the spacious twin room, while open tread stairs lead to a double bedroom and snug/small sitting room.

Tucked away yet conveniently located, a short drive will take you to Porthgain with its popular pubs and the beautiful beaches of Abereiddy and the Blue Lagoon made famous by the Red Bull Diving Championships and Abermawr, as well as the popular surfing beach of Whitesands. Join the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path and explore this stunning coastline. Golf is available in St Davids, Mathry and Haverfordwest; this riverside market town is well worth a visit. The tiny city of St David's is only a 10 minute drive away with its excellent facilities, cathedral and Bishops Palace.

A perfect holiday retreat all year round, yet ideally located for exploring this area of Pembrokeshire.

A lovely home, we've loved being here. Our daughter got married in the cathedral so Swallows Rest was a marvellous base for the family. We will go away with very happy memories.

We've had a lovely weekend at Swallows Rest.A good location for cycling around the area and for visiting various beaches to fly kites. Enjoyed getting to grips with cooking on an AGA - Especially enjoyed the aga toast.


A most enjoyable stay. Accommodation well equipped, comfortable and tastefully decorated. Ideal location facilities for a chill out. Highly recommended and no complaints what so ever!
