Please quote reference CA0031 when enquiring about this property.


A unique and stunning property found in the centre of Nottage Village, originally a 16th century barn and stables, this property was converted to an exceptional standard several years ago by the current owners.


From the moment you enter into the open plan Kitchen/Breakfast room, you are surrounded by luxury and quality everywhere you look.  Oak flooring, cast iron radiators, wooden beams and exposed stone walls surround you as you move through the barn.


The bespoke handmade kitchen has granite worktops along its perimeter and a large central island boasts a bespoke maple worktop.  There is a Belfast sink, Rangemaster 6 burner cooker and an American style fridge freezer.  The flooring is stone tiled.   


Off the kitchen, to the right, is a large room currently used as a utility room, this room has a staircase to a guest double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom.


Off the kitchen, to the left, the adjacent snug / dining room has a stable door, feature oak beams and stone floor.


Moving into the lounge you enter a generous second reception room boasting a beautiful stone fireplace with log burner, feature windows, and a "secret" stairs case to the main bedroom.


The inner hallway has a tiled floor, WC, storage areas and staircase to the first floor.


Upstairs the luxurious theme continues in the generously proportioned main bedroom with bespoke oak storage cupboards, oak flooring and beams. The second bedroom has built in wardrobes and oak flooring with feature beams, whilst the third bedroom, has further bespoke wardrobes and its own en-suite walk in shower room with rainfall shower.


The family bathroom has double, wall mounted wash hand basins, shower cubicle and freestanding bath.


Outside a gated entrance leads to the privately enclosed cobble-stone courtyard that currently doubles up as additional off-road parking.  Should a garden be desirable this large area can be laid to turf or astro turf.


Please note - this property is also amenable to a semi-private living arrangement with the fourth bedroom having a private bathroom and sitting over a decent sized room to the right of the kitchen which is currently used as a store / utility room.


The current owner of the Old Barn is an interior design talent.  All fixings, fittings and furniture are negotiable.

Further Information

Google “The Old Barn in beautiful coastal town Porthcawl” and you will see that this property is currently an Air B & B Superhost, 5 star property.


Porthcawl was also listed in a recent Telegraph article entitled : “21 fashionable 'It towns' that you can still afford to move to…


“Located at the end of the Glamorgan Heritage coast, the predominantly Victorian town of Porthcawl is bursting with modern amenities, combined with the added bonus of being a seaside destination.


There's a pretty seafront historic theatre called The Grand Pavilion, where the Elvis Festival has become an internationally renowned annual event.

The sea is a permanent neighbour to the town, offering a number of rocky and sandy beaches and also dramatic photos of stormy seas as the waves crash against the harbour wall; photos of which circulate across the world on social media platforms.


"The Blue Flag awarded Rest Bay beach is a surfers' paradise, and then there is Town Beach, Sker Beach and Pink Bay to the west and Newton Beach to the east.  For those looking for sport or recreation Porthcawl really is perfect.


Along the coast from Rest Bay the Royal Porthcawl Golf Club is regarded as one of the finest courses in the world and Pyle and Kenfig Golf Club is also a firm favourite with locals.


In the other direction the area of outstanding natural beauty that is the Merthyr Mawr Warren National Nature Reserve and sand dunes will astound you and the surrounding rolling countryside can easily help you to lose yourself in natural rural bliss for the day.



The cities of Cardiff and Swansea are about a 40 and 30-minute drive away respectively, depending on traffic, and Bridgend and the McArthur Glen Designer Outlet are both just up the dual carriageway.”
