“Heavenly Holiday with the Hounds in The Bike Shed”
Reviewed 21 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The reviews cannot do this place justice. You NEED to visit!

We stayed for 1 week in the Bike Shed. Beautifully decorated bijou accommodation, had everything we needed! Beautiful setting with gorgeous views, beautiful walks from your doorstep and lots more nearby. This is the perfect doggy holiday, our dogs made very welcome by Nikki and Jason and their 3 gorgeous beagles!

Highly recommend Nikki's food, her cooking is to die for - we had 2 evening meals, a cooked breakfast and a chocolate cake - the best I've ever tasted. Plenty of doggy friendly eateries around also - our favourite was a pub called the Daffodil. You are provided with a folder recommending lots of places to visit, dog friendly eateries, forest walks, dog friendly beaches, the works. You're spoilt for choice!

We brought our two whippets who love to run in open spaces so we visited lots of beaches - Pembrey Country park is a must and was also enjoyed Cei Bach and Llansteffan.

All in all our week was perfect and I wouldn't change a thing - very sad to be home! We'll definitely be back :-D

“If you like beautiful countryside views and walks with your dogs you will love this place”
Reviewed 13 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My partner, my parents my three dogs and I stayed for a week in the Bay Tree Barn.
On first arrival the stunning view was confirmed in spades.
We had all the information we needed on arrival and our hosts were always on hand to help out with anything we needed during the week.
The local Brechfa Forest walks are very good and signed well so a walking novice will not have any difficulty.
I can heartily recommend a trip to Pembray and we also Enjoyed Tenby (with a sea fishing trip thrown in, booked from the harbour on the day), St Davids and Solva.
All in all I can thoroughly recommend a trip over to beautiful Carmarthenshire.

“Stunning”
Reviewed 13 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed in the two barns which were really well equipped and modern, we had six dogs who had the most amazing time, we went to the beach and forestry which again was stunning. Nikki and her husband were so welcoming and friendly I would highly recommend a holiday here especially if you have dogs as they will love it.
In the mornings it was amazing waking up to stunning views and tranquillity you really couldn't ask for anything more and the sunsets are to die for. I will defiantly be returning and will also be sampling Nikki's cooking xx

“Wonderful place to stay with 4 dogs”
Reviewed 30 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Stayed in bay tree barn for a week - beautiful accommodation, stunning scenery and fabulous hosts. Stayed with my teenage daughter and 4 dogs - 2 of my dog can be nervous and it meant the world that Nikki spent time greeting them and giving them biscuits. Nikkis cooking is amazing and I highly recommend it!
The cottage is in a stunning location that is so peaceful and quiet I could feel the stresses of life just draining away. Sitting in the garden just watching the scenery was blissful heaven!
The beach at Pembrey is a must see - miles of beautiful beach and more or less empty of visitors - myself and my dogs had the beach to ourselves for hours.
The mountain walks are right on the doorstep - there is just so much for dogs to explore.
Brechfa forest barns was recommended to me and I will not look for anywhere else as this was perfect.
We will be back!!

“A really beautiful place with stunning views.”
Reviewed 29 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We spent 5 days here as an extended family of 6 with 3 dogs. What can we say the place was just fantastic. We have spent many times away and this place had it all. Really tastefully done, comfortable, practical and most of all it had character. What could top that ! Well the stunning views did. It was worth coming just for the views. We self catered and the accommodation had everything we needed with no problem cooking for 6 adults.

The beds were really comfortable. I suffer with a bad back and had no trouble at all getting a great nights sleep. The barn was centrally heated which worked instantly when needed. The enclosed garden was ideal for the three dogs and had seating and a barbecue should we have needed it. If you want total peace and quiet away with your dogs then this has to be the must come to place.

We all had a thoroughly lovely stay and much needed break and I would highly recommend a stay here whether for a short weekend or a longer week or two. There is an infinite amount of places to visit and activities provided both locally and in the wider area. One place we found particularly lovely was New Quay a quaint little seaside town with a lovely little dog friendly beach.

All in all a great week !!
