I’m the kind of person who loves nature and being outdoors, but also strive for a bit of luxury which means I often have to choose between these two. The Owl’s Nest has somehow managed to balance both: rural, cosy escape with a touch of luxury and that’s what makes it so special.
Based in Dolgran, southwest Wales, Owl’s Nest is a real getaway from the pressure of modern life. It hasn’t been on the market for a long time, yet managed to get featured on Discovery Channel – and I’m so glad I’ve managed to book it before its release, I assume this place will soon get really popular and fully booked well in advance – and this is exactly what they deserve! The place is so quirky, unique, and this whole experience was just something I’ll never forget! Early morning coffee with the sheep wandering by the terrace and late evenings with a glass of wine by the fireplace – truly magical.
The house is very well equipped and the host (Matt) was so welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. I love when hosts go an extra mile to make the place special and you can clearly notice all the thoughtful details. We even got the complimentary champagne which definitely cheered us up after a long journey!
Although the house is secluded, there’s still plenty of places well worth a visit: see the nearby beaches guide here.
