About Asheston Eco Barns
Asheston Eco Barns is a beautifully renovated luxury complex using the latest eco friendly technology to provide a sustainable family holiday in Pembrokeshire. The 5 self-catering barns, sleeping from 2 to 7 guests, have been rebuilt to the highest standard of finish, whilst retaining the traditional character. Situated in a secluded and peaceful environment, surrounded by open fields and woodland and located just 3 miles from the stunning blue flag beach at Newgale, they provide a beautiful setting for a truly relaxing family holiday or short break. A stay at Asheston Eco Barns is even better knowing that your holiday has had a minimal impact on the environment.
Asheston Eco Barns are traditional Welsh stone farm buildings providing luxury holiday accommodation in a sustainable environment. The five individual barns all benefit from state of the art environmentally friendly technology. A wind turbine provides the electricity, heating comes from underground geo-thermal heat pumps, hot water from high speed vacuum solar panels, rain water recycling is used to reduce water usage and waste is treated in a bio-digester.
The luxury barns have been renovated to obtain five star grading using traditional building methods and have such features as oak beams, natural slate and limestone floors and eco friendly clay paint. The fittings for the barns are all to the highest standard and are fully equipped with modern kitchens and bathrooms. Outside each barn has its own secluded landscaped area for dining al fresco or just for relaxing and watching the sunset with a glass of wine. Care has been taken to ensure access for those with restricted mobility providing bedrooms and wet room showers on the ground floor. The barns can accommodate an individual family of up to 7 people or are ideal for larger extended family holidays by booking barns that are adjacent to each other (subject to availability of course). The barns do not have connecting doors.
Child Friendly Facilities
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. Cots, highchairs and stairgates are provided as standard, however additional baby friendly measures such as bottle warmers, baby baths and baby monitors can also be made available.
Pembrokeshire offers a wealth of places to visit and things to do ranging from the outdoor activity based to more cultural and historical attractions.

The Pembrokeshire Coast Path passes close by, at Penycwm, and the Celtic Trail long distance cycle route passes within a mile of the eco barns, helping make this a great place to stay for hikers and cyclists.
