“Absolutely stunning location”
Reviewed 17 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

My partner and I stayed here for 4 nights with our dog Max.We couldn't of been more impressed with the surrounding countryside it simply is stunning with walks on your doorstep.We stayed in Bay Tree Barn and totally loved it and will certainly be returning.Nikki and Jay are two of the most genuinely kind people we have had the pleasure to meet nothing was to much trouble.We had a meal cooked 1 night by Nikki which she then kindly brings over to you and was extremely tasty and highly recommended.We even invited them over for a drink which they kindly excepted and we felt like we were in the company of friends we had known for years.Thankyou both very much for making us feel so welcome we look forward to seeing you both again soon.

“Thank you for a great break, great food and great location”

Just wanted to say ‘Thank you’ for allowing us to stay in Bay Tree with the dogs this weekend. We all had a lovely time. It’s rare to find somewhere you can stay with four dogs, especially when it includes 2x 4 month old Border Terrier puppies, and an elderly arthritic Lab ! They were definitely welcomed and not just tolerated. Sometimes ‘dogs allowed’ means we’ve had to accept the standard or location of a property is compromised or not ideal, yours excels in both those areas with stunning views included. It was a big bonus to have ‘fine dining’ brought to our door on Friday and have a night off cooking without leaving the cottage and especially the wood burner.
We look forward to returning in the future to explore this beautiful area more and work our way through your delicious menu !

Thanks for Liz for highlighting that we really are dog friendly, not just dog tolerant. As always, nothing makes us happier than knowing our guests and their dogs have had a great time - apart from a 5* review of TripAdvisor of course! Looking forward to having you back already :)

“Great short break with dogs”

We've just returned from a 4 day break and had an excellent time. Baytree Barn was very cosy and comfortable. Slept like logs which may have been due to the fresh mountain air or the comfy bed. Log burner was great additional to the efficient central heating.

Nikki cooked the meal on our wedding anniversary which meant all we had to do was open the champagne........ Bonus!

Partner and dogs loved the walks in nearby Brechfa Forest. Great place to get away from it all in excellent accommodation. We've decided that we'll be back again ..... this time with some friends who will enjoy it too.

Reviewed 19 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Absolutely fantastic place! Will definitely be returning as well as recommending to everyone we know! Walks are brilliant around the barns as well as further afield. Can't wait to come back and sample Nikki's cooking everyone raves about and take Jason up on his offer for a guided mountain bike ride!

“Stylish and very homely.”
Reviewed 10 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We stayed in Bay Tree Barn on the weekend of 7th - 9th Feb. We were looking forward to a relaxing and peaceful weekend after a stressful start to the new year and thats what we got.
Unfortunately the weather from start to finish threw all the elements at us, rain, hail, thunder and lightning non stop therefore we did not have the chance to take in this beautiful area or go on any of the walks.

When we arrived we were met by Nikki who showed us to the cottage and gave us info needed for our stay.
The cottage was warm, compact and very welcoming with some lovely touches, like pretty
bunting in the bedroom and some little heart ornaments and plants. The lamps in the main bedroom were on making it all very warm and comforting.

we had a wonderful meal cooked by Nikki on friday night and the stuffed mushrooms and
sticky toffee pudding would put Gordon Ramsey to shame!!!





All to soon our weekend was over - hope we can return for longer in September. Have recommended the barns to my colleagues.
