Welcome to Owen’s Barn

Owen’s Barn is a renovated stone property dating back to the 14th century. It has been awarded a Gower Society Design Award and plaque for its sympathetic conversion. It is located in the heart of the village of Newton just above the popular seaside village of Mumbles.

The Barn is split into two self contained units comprising of the Main Barn sleeping 4 people and The Stable which has one double bedroom sleeping 2. Depending on availabilty both units can be let together and there is access between the two.

The property forms part of the enclosed farmhouse and barn known as New Hill Farm. It is an historic, period farmhouse with parts dating back as early as 1310.

John Wesley is believed to have preached in Owen’s Barn during a period of inclement weather whilst waiting for his church to be built. Dylan Thomas is also believed to have played here during stays with his Uncle David Rees who became a preacher at the Paraclete Church next door. The arched gate on the patio leads directly out onto Summerland Lane where there is a plaque on the wall of The Manse, where he stayed, commemorating Dylan’s visits to Newton.
