Paxton View Barn is an attractive and airy detached barn conversion situated within the grounds of the owner’s smallholding, where they have a horse, donkeys and chickens. The barn has been carefully renovated to provide quality accommodation with contemporary comforts.

To the front and side of the barn, there is a spacious stone patio leading to a lawned area, the perfect spot for enjoying an al-fresco meal with a drink. The interiors feature exposed stone, brickwork and oak lintels which add much character, and the combination of underfloor heating and a wood burner provide all the warmth and cosiness you will need. The full-length feature window and patio doors allow natural light to flood the rooms, and the open-plan living space boasts comfortable seating and a bespoke kitchen with an induction hob and a built-in oven. Also on the ground floor, there is a twin bedroom and a separate toilet. On the first floor, you will find the family bathroom and two bedrooms, both with kingsize beds, one of which also has an en-suite shower room and a delightful balcony with table and chairs, to take full advantage of the view of Paxton‘s Tower, after which the barn was named.

The tower is a neo-Gothic folly built by Sir William Paxton in honour of Lord Nelson. Well worth a visit, it is situated on a hilltop near Llanarthney, and its location provides fabulous views over the National Botanic Gardens of Wales and the Towy Valley. These famous botanic gardens, just two miles away, are a fascinating blend of the contemporary with the historic. You will find an inspiring range of themed gardens, the world’s largest single-span domed glasshouse, play areas and a national nature reserve, all set in a Regency landscape, which provides the stage for a packed programme of events and courses throughout the year, whatever the weather.

Carmarthenshire has some of the most spectacular and diverse landscapes in south west Wales. You can travel over breathtaking mountains, through lush, green landscapes, discover secluded castles and ancient forests, as well as vast expanses of golden sandy beaches such as the Pembrey (one of the longest in Wales), Laugharne, Pendine and Lansteffan. Also within easy reach are a wealth of attractions found along the Pembrokeshire Coastline and the Gower Peninsula.

Just a 10-minute drive away is Carmarthen; the oldest town in Wales and the birthplace of Merlin according to Arthurian legends. The town offers an array of shopping, entertainment and dining options, and equally worthy of a visit is the old jail house, which dates back to the 1530s. Today, it serves as a museum nestling within the outer walls of the imposing County Hall. Just outside the town, you can take a ride aboard the Gwilil Steam Railway, which puffs its way through the Carmarthenshire countryside, and special adult and family events take place throughout the year.

Why not come and stay at Paxton View Barn and find out for yourself how much there is to discover in this wonderful region? When you have enjoyed a busy day’s exploring, you will find a ’Croesco Cynnes’ or a warm Welsh welcome just half a mile away in one of the two traditional pubs, complete with oak beams, roaring log fires and locally sourced produce. One of them, a 14th century thatched pub, has its own brewery crafting real ales and cider. The owners live in the adjacent building, so help is always at hand. Beach 20 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

Jane 15/09/2020

Wonderful cottage, beautiful outside space and I credible views. Lovely, peaceful getaway.

Helen 20/09/2020

A fab place to stay, will certainly be looking to return in the future. Well equipped with everything you'd need (cooker was a bit of a challenge, not the easiest to figure out even with the instructions). Hot tub was great. As far as location is concerned, it was nice and central to many nearby attractions and places to visit. Two local pubs, once better (Butcher's Arms) than the other and best to book a table under the current situation re: Covid.

Lovely cottage, lots of space perfect for a getaway with friends. Hot tub was excellent and clean. Would definitely recommend.

Stuart 20/06/2021

We had a lovely week at Paxton View.Weather was nice and you are within easy reach of the south coast. The barn itself had everything you need. The kitchen ,living and dining areas were big enough for the six of us. The bedrooms upstairs were extremely spacious and very comfortable indeed. The whole quality of the barn was top notch. The hot tub was a great addition too and enjoyed by us all. There are two local pubs within 10 to 15 minute walk. We only went to the Butchers because we went on our first evening and the food is lovely and all freshly made and the staff were fantastic. Susan who owns the barn was around if you needed her but was never intrusive. If we were ever going to travel to this area again we would stay again.

Diane 26/07/2021

Stunning accomodation, would stay again.

Ellie 05/08/2021

Lovely property for a holiday with my friends. It was bigger than we were expecting and perfect for what we needed. Hot tub was always clean and checked regularly by the owner. Would definitely like to visit again!

Georgia 31/07/2021

A beautiful, immaculate barn with everything you needed for a lovely holiday. The owner was very welcoming. We had a great holiday.

Bradley 09/08/2021

Paxton View is simply beautiful. The barn, the hot tub and the views were all fantastic. Thoroughly recommended!

Lee 29/08/2021

Beautiful Barn conversion with everything you need in an elevated position with lovely views. Easy access through the main gates (no need to use the lane). The place was immaculate and the hot tub was fantastic and relaxing after a busy day. The Botanic Gardens nearby are worth a visit and the entrance ticket allows visits for another 7 days. Easy access to the areas such as Tenby and plenty of beaches to choose from. The best place to eat was the Butchers Arms which had beautiful food and a table outside could be reserved to eat or inside. The rest had more basic food.
