“Welcoming to All-including Sammie the ferret”
Reviewed 14 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We had a long weekends stay at Bay Tree Barn, just us and Sammie the house ferret. We all had a lovely time. The views are breath taking and we can highly recommend the food prepared by Nikky. We were cosy and well looked after at all points, from initial enquiry to goodbyes. Beds were comfy, well equipped and beautiful Wales on the doorstep. Even in the worst weather you could hole up here and be very happy, luckily we had very good weather. Coast within easy reach and so much to do locally as well, highly recommend the Roman Gold Mine! Thanks again for being so welcoming to all of us

“Relaxing holiday away from it all,with fabulous views ! Perfect .”
Reviewed 12 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed Monday to Friday in bay tree barn with our three dogs.

The cottage has everything you need and is warm ,welcoming and very cosy. The dogs had a lovely time exploring the beautiful beaches and the forest ,as did we .It was topped off by the lovely sunny weather ,an added bonus.

Nikkis meals are wonderful ,I can recommend her chilli con carne and her bacon baguettes ,we also had her chocolate cake ,which was to die for !
All in all a gem of a holiday home and one we hope to return to.

“What an amazing find!!”
Reviewed 31 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Everything about our holiday experience was quite simply spot on. The Hay Barn was perfect for 2 adults, 3 teenagers and 2 labradors. Cosy, but not squashed at all. The decor and thoughtful attention to balancing the delicate combination of traditional barn style detail with the mod-cons that a family require was exceptional. This is truly a diamond in the middle of nowhere.

On our arrival the property was clean and tidy and there was a warm welcome from Teresa. We slept well (temperature fine, beds very comfy), cooked well (all kitchen equipment imaginable was there) and walked well. The forest was on the doorstep - literally! - and happy evenings were spent taking the time to watch the sun go down over the hills. We spent happy days walking in the forest and running with the dogs along the beach. Happy memories have been made.

There was thoughtful attention to detail with a big chest full of games and a shelf full of books. Yes, there was free wifi, but far preferable to spend time with family.

We're looking forward to escaping to you one day soon. Thank you for letting us stay.

This review is particularly welcome as we were away on holiday ourselves and relied on our cleaning lady to welcome you. Thank you Hannah - it's a relief to know all went according to plan in our absence and that you had such a great time at Brechfa Forest Barns. Come back soon!

“24th Wedding Anniversary”
Reviewed 18 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Stayed here for our Anniversary with our Boxer Dog Reuben absolutely Fab Weekend would recommend to anyone wanting to take their pet & the added bonus of having the Mud Trek for mountain biking fanatics. Nikki also cooks scrummy meals for you which we enjoyed on our Anniversary night, the setting is to die for &. The Coast can easily be reached which we took advantage of having a swimming mad dog x

“What a wonderful place, tranquil, relaxing, warm, welcoming hosts. Doggy heaven.”
Reviewed 16 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Nikki & Jay are the proprietors, we arrived to a warm welcome. The Bay tree is a great cottage since it has views both sides of the property. Fully equipped, literally, kitchen utensils, cleaning equipment, everything you could think of. Very clean, TOTALLY dog friendly to our 7 dogs! Amazing dog walks, forest and beaches. Our fave of Nikkis home cooking was the Spanish Chicken & Sticky Toffee pudding. They also helped me out big time as one of my beagles had to endure an emergency visit to the vet whilst there. We have rebooked for next year. Lovely, lovely, lovely.
