Bounded by trout streams, in the middle of 7 acres of private garden, fields and woodland, The Barn is tucked away in the village of Drefach Felindre, once the centre of the Welsh woollen industry. The National Wool Museum, visited by Prince Charles, is at the end of the drive. The village pub/restaurant is just a 5-minute walk, and there’s a chippie, shop and post office nearby too.

Our birds of prey are always a hit with guests. Meet the birds and be photographed with a hawk or buzzard on your glove. Really interested visitors can spend a whole day (free) learning how to handle, manage, feed, fly and track a hawk.

At the rear of The Barn, an orchard leads down to a stream. In the summer, youngsters have great fun paddling around and building dams. Early risers might see fox cubs playing in the grass, or pheasants on the lookout for breakfast. For a while the fishpond was empty – an otter took the koi carp to feed her family and a heron visited regularly until seen off by one of our hawks. A raised patio overlooking the orchard catches the afternoon and evening sun. It’s a great place to enjoy a drink or barbecue as the day ends and the tawny owls and bats start the night shift

The area around the Barn is packed with wildlife - especially birds. It's rare when there isn't at least one pair of buzzards or red kites circling overhead. If you're lucky, you might see a flash of brilliant blue as a kingfisher patrols the stream. One enthusiastic twitcher said he'd spotted 43 species of bird during his stay.

If you're into castles, the countryside and coastline are bursting with them. Pembroke Castle was the birthplace of Henry V11 - the father of Henry V111 (he of the 6 wives)
