Property Overview

A lovingly restored 2/3 bedroom converted barn with an additional galleried sleeping area over the lounge situated in Newton village - an excellent location for accessing the Gower Peninsula.

Dating back to the thirteenth century, Owen's Barn is believed to be the oldest building in Newton where the celebrated preacher the Rev John Wesley is said to have given sermons whilst waiting for his new church to be finished, and more recently, where Dylan Thomas is said to have played as a small boy. In 2006 Owen's Barn won the Gower Society Design Award for its sympathetic restoration and clever refurbishment.

Situated in the heart of Newton Village, just above Mumbles, making it the perfect location for those wishing to stay within close proximity of Mumbles, but conveniently placed for accessing Gower. There is a pub and a convenience store within easy walking distance.

The barn has been converted, and is divided into two separate properties, which have an interconnecting door. The larger property has 2 bedrooms with a galleried sleeping area and will sleep up to 4 people, whilst the smaller barn has a galleried double bedroom over the living area, with a bed sofa on the ground floor, and can sleep 2/3 people. The properties are available as a single unit or individually as required.

There are low beams throughout the first floor that help to retain the character of each property but may not suit some guests.
