Sylen Barn is a detached barn conversion on the outskirts of Pontyberem, a small village in Carmarthenshire and offers a perfect base for a family holiday. The barn has a great history, with the oldest part being an original water-powered threshing mill (although the water source is now long gone).

Sylen Barn sits on the edge of a courtyard with three similar properties. With a south-facing sun trap terrace and views across open countryside, you might spot buzzards, kites, swallows, owls and bats!

Within a 15-minute drive is Cefn Sedan beach, a seven-mile-long stretch of beach with some dog-friendly areas. The adjacent Pembrey Country Park is an extensive forest with mountain bike trails and a dry ski slope. An off-road cycle track is within a 5–10 minute uphill cycle from the barn, and it is also well situated to join the ‘Hill Hell’ local cycle route. From here, you can access Pembrey, Burry Port and Llanelli beaches stopping for a well-earned drink/meal at the Waun Wyllt pub on the way back.

The village of Pontyberem is within 0.5 miles and has an independent supermarket with a butcher/bakery/post office. Also on offer are a choice of takeaways and pubs, a park and a children’s play area.

There is a secure storage option for bikes and, if required, an undercover area for a jet ski or small boat storage. Pre-booking is required.
