“Fab cottage with great views and very dog friendly walks near by.”
Reviewed July 20, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed in the bay tree barn for 3 nights with our two large dogs and the whole experience was great. Nikki and Jason were really helpful and knowlegable about the local area. The cottage was really well equipped, no need to bring anything but shower gel and toothpaste, all other essentials were provided including food if you wanted it. The cottage comes with some great recommendations for walks, bike routes, pubs beaches and other amusements which are really usefull. The outside garden is fenced off so is good for smaller dogs but we tethered ours as they can jump a bit and with sheep near by I didn't trust them. The views from the barn garden are stunning. We did some of the recomended walks nearby (tower, black lion at abergorlech and keepers) and the slightly further afield pembry country park with a forest and dog friendly beach at the far end. All of these walks are great for dogs as shade and streams aren't far away. We didn't get to do the mountain bike routes because of the dogs this time but looked good for cyclists, will be recommending to my cycling friends.

“Super dog friendly with great hosts”
Reviewed July 10, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Our stay was brilliant.
Not only you have a wonderful location.
Centre for touring around or great to chill out and watch the world go by.
Nikki & Jason are super hosts. You really MUST try the great menu.
All cooked by Nikki & served in your own cottage.
Delicious.
We have three Scotties & they loved it.
The cottages have there own safe fenced off gardens which made our stay very relaxing.
Highly recommended
Cant wait to go again

“Cottage in the clouds”
Reviewed July 10, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We booked at short notice and had a wonderful Monday to Friday short break. Even the Mutt was chilled out and he rarely settles anywhere but home. The Cottage was very well appointed and very comfortable with a nice penned in garden to allow the mutt to come and go as he pleased. The views were stunning and the surrounding area provided some great walking.
Owned and run by Nikki and Jason (plus dogs) Great hosts.

“What an amazing holiday!!”
Reviewed June 27, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We decided to take a break with our two energetic dogs and booked Brechfa forest barns after numerous recommendations...

Booking early is advisable as this place gets booked up quickly - I am not surprised!

With a wealth of knowledge of the area and a keenness to ensure you get the most of your holiday based on what YOU want from it, this was by far the best place we have been whilst on holiday with our dogs!!

From amazing beaches to secluded bays and not forgetting the amazing forest walks followed by some good food in a dog friendly local pub (all of which were listed for your information and recommended in advance), you will always be busy and never disappointed!

We didn't take up the option of getting on the bikes as it looked far too energetic (scary) - maybe next time though!!!

Thanks to our fab and friendly hosts :0)

“What a find and what a welcome for you and your pets!!”
Reviewed June 25, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed at Bay Tree Barn with Millie our greyhound, and as we drove along the bumpy track, immediately felt at home. we received a warm response from Nikki (and took delivery of a wonderful pre-ordered apple cake).
The barn is well furnished and well equipped, perfect for couples/ families with or without pets, (though this is the most really pet friendly place we have ever rented).
Peace and quiet are in abundance. The barn is well positioned for visits to beaches and/or forest walks. Food can be pre ordered and delivered to your barn (good menu to choose from) and if energetic you can take advantage of Jason's mountain bike hire.
There are so many places to visit. we discovered Pembrey Country Park leading to a wonderful beach where it was safe to let Millie have a good run - she loved her holiday too. Our holidays are already booked for this year, but I am certain that we shall return in 2015.

“Excellent in so many ways”
Reviewed June 21, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We visited with our teenage son and dog in May 2014 for a 5 day stay. Having read the previous reviews on Trip Adviser we were looking forward to a good holiday and our expectations were exceeded.

The cottage was lovely, warm and had amazing views. Nikki and Jason were excellent hosts, providing helpful advice on walks and places to visit. On two evenings we dined in: Nikki is an great cook and her Welsh Apple cake was so good and kept us going all week.

Our teenage son went on a guided mountain bike ride with Jason, departing from the cottage door, returning home to exclaim it was ''awesome' - not a statement previously heard before.

My husband was delighted not to be on a mountain bike. We spent days walking in the stunning forests and deserted sandy beaches. A truly memoreable break even the weather was kind to us.

If you are looking for a relaxing (or adventurous mountain bike) holiday in a remote but beautiful place, with excellent hosts and food and truly dog friendly accommodation - this is the place for you.

Our only concern is that it might become too popular for us to book again but some places are just so good they need to be shared.

Reviewed June 16, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Stayed for a long weekend with hubby and two teenage boys and our Goldie. Easy to find, breathtaking views, cosy and comfy cottage, peaceful and very lucky with weather. Nikki so helpful on arrival and also when we forgot things !! Boys loved their mountain bikes hired from Jason at short notice. Sorry. Fantastic bike trails and walks. Nikki and Jason have thought of everything and felt comfy to ask if we needed anything. Wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you Nikki and Jason. Fantasy place look forward to returning. Sue Rik Harry and Tom and big thank you from Brooke too.
