“Absolutely fabulous”
Reviewed 28 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

I have just returned home from a weeks holiday at The Hay Barn at Brechfa Forest Barns with my dear old mum & my Rottweiler Beau. What can I say! It is the most perfect getaway destination I have ever been to. I was made to feel so welcome by Nikki who spent time showing us round the barn to ensure we knew where everything was & how to work all the appliances & heating etc. She then guided us through the comprehensive welcome pack & recommended places of interest for us to visit during our stay. The barn was just as I expected, it was so cosy & warm & had everything you could possibly want with very tasteful decor. The views were truly breathtaking and it felt so good to escape the hustle & bustle of everyday life & literally be in the middle of nowhere. Having said that there is so much to do & explore in the area with lovely forest walks on the doorstep & more a short drive away. There are also at least 3 lovely beaches to explore only a 30-45 minute drive away. I really can't rate the whole experience highly enough & can't wait to come again. Even the weather was surprisingly better than had been predicted.
I'd give it 11/10 if I could

11 out of 10! Wow - high praise indeed. Can't wait to have you back again, especially Beau - the most gorgeous, cuddliest, soppiest Rottie I've ever met! Thanks a million for this wonderful review.

“Looking Forward To Another Visit”
Reviewed 28 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We have just returned from our break in Bay Tree Barn and whilst it is not 5 star accommodation we definitely had a 5 star experience. The barn was exactly what I hoped for - rustic and cosy but plenty big enough for the two of us and our two Labradors. Nikki is a great host, there if you need her but not at all intrusive. She showed us around the barn, told us about local walks, pointed out on a map the beaches she would recommend and then went to make our dinner! We had mushroom soup; lasagne and trifle - all homemade and all delicious. We would definitely recommend you try the lasagne. The beds were really comfy and the barn had everything we required during our stay including the breathtaking views. Our dogs had a fabulous time, we visited Pembrey Country Park which is dog paradise - acres of forest to explore before reaching the 7 mile beach and we had the place to ourselves. There are plenty of forest walks near to the barns and we did three of them - again, didn't meet a soul. We visited the local pub one evening and had a decent meal but it is a few miles away. Overall, one of the best holidays we have had in the UK and we are looking forward to going back.

“What an incredible break away!”
Reviewed 27 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We stayed in Bay Tree Barn and the moment we arrived it was warm and cosy. The cottage was beautiful, exactly what you would dream of for a countryside holiday. Nikki was very welcoming and gave us all the information we could want about the area and walks. Nikki made us dinner that night and it was delicious. I highly recommend trying her home cooked food. The views from the cottage were breathtaking! We thoroughly enjoyed our weeks stay with our 4 dogs and made the most of the local forest walks and beaches. The dogs had the time of their lives and loved curling up in front of the fire after a long walk and myself and my husband returned feeling relaxed and refreshed. We can't wait to return again soon.

“Cosy weekend in The Bike Shed”
Reviewed 20 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Had a wonderful weekend away in the stunning camarthonshire, beautiful walks and great beaches for both walkers and muddy paws, The Bike Shed was small but fully equipped with a lovely decor. The night sky was a star gazers paradise so my husband was a very happy man. Our only frustration was the Wi-Fi and the fact we could not
Connect any of our 4 devices, this would have helped us greatly in planning our days.overall a very relaxing weekend.

So pleased you and your dogs enjoyed your stay Sue & Glenn. And thank you for your lovely report and photos posted on our Facebook page! As we were away ourselves we had no idea there was a problem with the wifi until you mentioned it in this review. We did leave a number for you to contact us on in the event of any problem and we would have reported a fault to BT immediately had we known. I do hope it didn't spoil your stay too much. For those reading this, being in the rural location we are in, our broadband will probably never be fast but it does usually work, especially as BT have just replaced 500m of cable on mountain. I will be on to them like a shot to see what the problem was.
