Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fantastic morning with Gary, Helena and their gangs of pigs. Thoroughly enjoyable ... The pigs are fantastic characters and clearly enjoy themselves (the veggie treats help!). Would absolutely recommend this.

We had a lovely time on a Pignic, which was a birthday present for our granddaughter who is pig mad! We all enjoyed the experience and found Gary and Helena both very welcoming, sharing their knowledge of their pet pigs.

What a lovely morning spent walking through woodland with Maverick and Goose. Such a unique experience in beautiful surroundings. I'd bought a private walk as a present for my husband so we had a donkey each to ourselves. Their owner Julia was great company and we learnt so much about these beautiful animals. A snack picnic of drink, crisps, apple and granola bar was included. The terrain is a little rough, very muddy in places and there's a bit of uphill so something to bear in mind. There is another activity of donkey games in the owner's field if mobility is an issue, which looks great fun. Would definitely recommend this. If you're lucky, you might even get a donkey hug at the end!

We had a fantastic time on the Pig-Nic walk earlier this week as a birthday present. The location is beautiful in the heart of the Brecon Beacons and it was lovely to meet, walk and find out more about the pigs. Loved walking and feeding them and then a very nice set of cakes and biscuits following the pig walk. Would definitely recommend this activity to all.

We had a lovely afternoon walking the dinky donkeys. It was a pleasure to meet Maverick and Goose, who were very well behaved. The views were wonderful too. Also educational, I learnt a lot about donkeys. Thank you to Julia for a very enjoyable afternoon, and to Rebecca too. Welly boots are a must, a couple of very muddy stretches, but nothing to be concerned about.

Fantastic experience out in the stunning welsh countryside. Julia was very informative, thorough in her delivery of information. Warm and welcoming, friendly and relaxing. Maverick and Goose, the gorgeous, Dinky donkeys were so easy to handle, had a lovely nature and calm temperament. We had fantastic weather with added to the day all the more. Picnic was lovely and catered to all dietary requirements . We'd absolutely come back again and will be sure to recommend this experience to everyone

We had a lovely day with Julia, the Dinks and the horses. We learnt a lot about donkeys and enjoyed cuddles, playing and grooming them.

My daughter especially enjoyed putting the Dinks to bed and we all came home wanting one. Julia was great at tailoring our experience to the age of family, so we got the most out of it.

Thank you for an amazing day, we will be back one day, to see Goose and Maverick again, but equally there are some other good day out experiences we will try some time too.

Amazing walk with the dinky donkeys Maverick and Goose!
Really enjoyable few hours learning about the donkeys and grooming them, followed by a lovely (albeit muddy!) woodland walk and picnic. Julia was a very welcoming host and made the morning a memorable experience. She also took amazing photos and sent them to us within hours. Highly recommended.

Had the most amazing time feeding the kunekune pigs yesterday 20th may 2024 taking them for walks ,leaning about them. I loved how friendly they were and how clever theyare when wanting food. I also love how they are kept in a clean environment and how they are taken care for with love.🐖
