Asheston Eco Barns are traditional Welsh stone farm buildings providing luxury holiday accommodation in a sustainable environment. The barns have been rebuilt to the highest standard of finish while retaining as much as possible of the traditional character to provide a beautiful setting for a family holiday.
One of the drivers when renovating the barns as holiday cottages was to provide a setting for people to have a holiday with minimal impact to the environment. The 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 barns have been renovated to obtain a 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.
Asheston Eco Barns offers a secluded and peaceful environment as it is surrounded by 22 acres of open fields and woodland and has magnificent country views down Brandy Brook valley towards Roch Castle.
There are five barns, and they are attached to each other so this makes them ideal for larger extended family holidays where each can occupy their own Barn adjacent to each other (subject to availability of course). The barns do not have connecting doors. The barns are approached by a quarter mile of private drive and there is ample parking to the rear of the barns.
All are furnished with antique furniture, fittings and traditional log burning stoves for those cosy nights in by the fire. 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. Please note all barns are non smoking and we are sorry but we do not accept pets.
