Spent the afternoon on the Brecon Explorer half day horse ride and what a great time we had. Our guide Katherine was wonderful, at the start we learnt how to adjust the girth and stirrups before heading out. The ride took us along lanes and bridleways, through rivers and pretty little villages. My boyfriend and I are fairly inexperienced riders... More

Wonderful staff and activities and 5 star indoor play area. The shows were great and the kids enjoyed feeding and holding different animals. Even though it rained all weekend, we still all had a great time! :) Thank you Cantref

I took my three Grandchildren - twins of 6 and an 8 year old for a day to Cantref and that day just flew by. They had an absolutely wonderful time and I did not have to be chasing them around all the time. First they were playing inside on the soft play area with slide etc. They fed the... More

A really lovely farm, in a beautiful setting. The animals looked clean and well looked after. There were regular talks, we got to feed the goats, watch the new lambs, and received a talk on the petting animals where the children were able pet them. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. There was plenty to do to keep us busy.... More

Brilliant day out for the kiddies, great soft play area. We were lucky to see lambing season. Kids are able to touch animal. All in all worth the money

Cantref Adventure Farm was pretty good! The play area is pretty big but isn't very clean and hygienic. The food here isn't very nice but the drinks aren't bad. The outdoor activities are good and the animals are good too. But the prices to gain entry here are ridiculously overprices and generally Cantref is not clean!!! Sorry!

We are glad to hear you found our outdoor activities and animals good. We are sorry you did not enjoy your food. This is disappointing as food is freshly cooked to order and we offer a range of homemade specials using top quality ingredients including our own pork for sausages. I am sorry you did not find the play area... More

Visited on Christmas Eve with 4 young children and 4 adults to see Santa and a horse riding lesson for the children.

The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was due to many of the rides and attractions were closed as... More

Quite expensive and a place full of oddities! We were there during a pirates and princesses day, which included the chance to pamper a pony! This meant painting a pony with face paints, glitter and ribbons! The 'show' is just odd and apparently never changes, I went with my own two children and my cousin and her three children, she...

We went to a birthday party here, the children loved the animals, thoroughly enjoyed driving the small tractors, had fun on the boats, had lots of slides and did not want to leave the sandpit area
