This was our third visit to Bay Tree Barn, the cottage has all you need for a comfortable stay, is very dog friendly. The owners Nikki and Jay have made this a very pleasant place to stay, you feel nothing would be too much trouble for them. Nikki cooks excellent meals and they are most welcome when you arrive, her lasagne is one of the best I have had.
The area is very close to loads of fantastic walks for dogs, bike trails if your into mountain biking and is not that far for some fantastic beaches. All in all it has it all.

“What can I write that hasn't already been written?”
Reviewed 5 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We have just returned from a 4 night break in The Hay Barn - and the barn really is as perfect as all of the previous reviews state! The barn is spotlessly clean, and has been furnished beautifully. One of the best things about this barn is it is fabulously warm as it is fitted with its own heating system which you control - unlike many holiday cottages where you end up cold as the heating is contolled for you.
The barns are fabulously situated between the Cardigan Coastline and also the Carmarthenshire Coastline and even though we had some dreadful weather we still got out and about and visited the local area.
Nikki and Jason are wonderful hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them. They are on hand if you need their help otherwise you are left in peace to enjoy your break. If you are considering ordering food from Nikki, her lasagne is one of the best I have ever eaten (and a huge portion).
While we were staying the new wifi was fitted....and I can confirm that it works perfectly!
Unfortunately we had cut our break short so did not get the opportunity to explore Brechfa Forest...but we will hopefully return in the near future.

Nicky thank you so much for this review. I know you were both full of cold so returned home early so it's absolutely heart warming to hear that you enjoyed what you did have of your stay, and my lasagne! Please do come back and explore the forest - it's pretty stunning ;)

“Fantastic!”

We stayed in The Hey Barn for two nights and every bit of it was fantastic!

Our party was three adults and a baby. We were going to bring the dog but had a last minute change of plan.

We had some car issues just as we arrived at the properties and Jason (the owner) was very helpful and put us in touch with his local mechanic which was a real help.

The barn was very clean and the attention to detail and little extras really made it feel homely. The weather was bad for the whole stay and the car was in the garage majority of the time. We stayed in during the day playing board games which were already in the barn. The wifi wasn't working and no signal on our mobiles but it was nice to have a break from too much technology.

The kitchen had all the equipment we needed to make three meals a day.

I couldn't fault the barn and will definitely be returning.

Thanks so much for the glowing review Adelle. We're particularly pleased to read this as you had such bad luck with your car and the weather was pretty shocking! The BT wifi is sometimes a bit hit and miss when we have such bad weather. Tomorrow we are having satellite broadband installed for our guests so service should be much improved from this point on. Hooray!

Our aim for this break away was peace, quiet, quality time with the dogs and some lovely walks. We achieved just that (in fact the only person we saw was the Tesco delivery driver).
We would like to thank you both for honouring our booking whilst you were away (despite not taking any further bookings). We hope you enjoyed your break as much as we did?!?!
Bay Tree Barn is a quaint accommodation set in the idealistic scenery of the Welsh countryside. Despite you not being here to welcome us (and from all your reviews this is a welcome and a half!) we felt we had been welcomed by the informative note left.
Bay Tree Barn had everything we wanted and more! From the well equipped kitchen, to the warm and welcoming beds and also the log fire (our saviour in this cold, wet and windy weather). And despite you being on a break yourself, the comfort of knowing that there were house/dog sitters in an emergency and also your mobile number (just glad we didn't need it!)
Ollie and Annie (our pampered pooches) felt right at home and also loved the log fire! So thank you both for amazing accommodation in amazing surroundings and a warm and informative welcome, despite not seeing you.
We hope to visit again one day (maybe we will fill all 3 barns/shed with friends! Sharing is caring after all) when the weather is finer and we can maybe venture further (poor Ollie, our tripaw, was blown over a couple of times).
Best wishes and many thanks. All the very best for continued success with your business

Had a really wonderful trip to Brechfa. Hosts were great! Bathroom very little in bike shed so if your not a fan of wet rooms opt for another cottage. Would visit again, with extra waterproofs!
