  • "We had a wonderful time at the barn ."

    We received a very warm welcome from the hosts Orsola & Patrick who couldn’t do enough for us. The Barn had everything we needed and more. The hot tub was a relaxing treat at the end of a long walk . We explored the area of West Wales and used the literature found in the barn to plan our day. We will definitely return to this lovely barn !

  • "We have just had a lovely holiday in this beautiful little barn conversion."

    It is a perfect place for a couple, with everything you need for a comfortable stay, clean and well equipped and set in beautiful peaceful grounds, with the bonus of an amazing hot tub which is perfect for those evenings in or if not there is a lovely log burner instead. A great place to relax and unwind. The location is great its not far at all to the coast where there are several beautiful sandy beaches. We did several coastal walks while we was there with totally stunning views and loads of wildlife. And not to far to drive to penderyn distillery for a tour and there shop. Orsola and Patrick made us very welcome and Orsola cooked us our wedding anniversary meal which was amazing

  • "Really enjoyed our stay."

    The surroundings and grounds are lovely and very quiet , even saw the beautiful peacock on several occasions. Reliable train times to Tenby and close to places to visit such as saundersfoot, pendine sands. We went to Colby gardens and walked to Amroth which is well worth doing. We found Narberth not particularly dog friendly . Blessed with lovely weather to make the most of this lovely part of Wales.

  • "We've had an amazing week."

    Warm welcome, lovely weather, peaceful and private place, very cozy and with all the things we needed and much more (we loved the DVD collection!). We loved the hot tub, the chimney, the barbacue, the exquisite food Orsola prepared and the shooting stars. We are really lucky we could enjoy our stay even more with our doggy, who will greatly miss the pond and it's surroundings. Above and beyond hospitality. Memorable holidays we will never forget. Highly recommended.

  • "Lovely barn conversion with everything needed, very much home from home and clean."

    Great hosts, extremely welcoming. The barn itself is situated within the grounds of the hosts own home and is surrounded by lovely garden, pond, and ducks. I can imagine this being glorious in the summer. There was also a visiting peacock. The barn is extremely comfortable and warm with a lovely log burner and is situated within a fantastic distance to everything we needed. Great space for our dogs as we made use of the outhouses after long walks to allow the dogs to dry off. Although in the middle of the countryside it was a short car journey to everything we needed and places to visit. The beaches are fantastic with or without four legged friends and the small town of Narberth has everything you could wish for. We hope to return to experience this lovely part of the world in the summer months. Highly recommended.

    An amazing shower and comfy bed and sofa, perfect for snuggling up to each other by the log burner after a long day. Hot tub deep and a welcome bonus. The use of the freezer also a massive bonus. The grounds are beautiful and the owners are super friendly. (Definitely try Orsola’s cakes). Highly recommend staying here!

  • "My wife &I cannot recommend this place highly enough."

    An absolutely delightful little bolt hole from the world outside, hosted by 2 of the friendliest people you are likely to meet. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the excellent accommodation, which is doubly enhanced by the charming large garden ( although 'garden' hardly does the extensive grounds justice, incorporating as is does large grassed areas, a duck pond, green house, woods & pavilion, as well as a pizza oven & fire pit). Stunning & all available for guests to enjoy. The cosey accommodation is small but perfect for a couple, with a nice large hot tub in its own private space. We loved everything about it

    The owners were extremely professional yet super friendly. They were also very informative around local information and guidance. The location is excellent and the grounds are so picturesque we felt really calm which was the perfect medicine away from our hectic professional lives. The barn was stunning and the hot tub was a lovely addition which we enjoyed at the end of the day. Orsola is a super chef and the home made pizza was outstanding. We would certainly stay here again. Thanks so much.

    ! We had such an amazing time and didn't want to leave. The Barn is such a beautiful place, surrounded by beautiful grounds and has everything you could need - stargazing from the hot tub was a particular highlight! There are so many nice beaches and places to visit nearby and the local town of Narberth is a delight. Orsola and Patrick are great hosts and made us feel so welcome and Orsola's cooking is outstanding, all we will say is - the best Pizza we've ever eaten (and we've eaten a lot!!). Will 100% be booking again as so much more to see and will definitely be doing a longer stay next time. If you want a relaxing stay with things to do nearby, with amazing hosts in a wonderful accommodation then Waunlippa is the place for you!

    What an amazing find. Everything was just fantastic, no downsides at all. A peaceful location -with local walks if wished, a babbling stream borders one side of the grounds- which I walked my dogs most days, good distances to the beaches too! Everything inside is immaculate. The bed was so, so comfortable.The hot tub was in use everyday! Patrick and Orsola are so friendly and helpful. Thank you. You won’t find a better place to spend a week!

    The hosts are super friendly and helpful, they didn't intrude but were available for a chat and genuinely wanted to make our holiday as enjoyable as possible, with recommendations on places to go, and of course lovely food (Orsola is a trained chef and provides both haute cuisine meals and cookery classes). Pembrokeshire is beautiful, loads of lovely coastal walks and sany beaches. Tenby is great to walk around, lots of independent shops and nearby beaches. All in all we had a lovely week, a blessed relief from the stresses of work life (esp under COVID) - we were able to properly relax, which is our goal for a holiday.

The location was excellent as we were around 8 miles from most coastal villages. And a few miles from Pembrokeshire National Park. Orsola made a amazing Sunday roast for us.
