“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed 4 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Had a wonderful 4 days in the Hay Barn . The accommodation very comfortable & cosy, the scenery is breathtaking and we were blessed with lovely weather It's always a worry when taking 4 dogs on hols, but no need here we were all made to feel most welcome and left feeling so relaxed & chilled, in fact I would say the most comfortable holiday we have had with our dogs. Great beaches, forest walking and pub grub all with 30 mins drive, & Nikki's food is delicious for a night in!

Yes you did indeed have the weather Clare! How lovely that you felt so at ease with your 4 dogs. We do try to make it clear that we really are dog friendly, not just dog tolerant so thank you for mentioning that. As always we're delighted that guests enjoy the cottages, views, local pubs etc and my cooking. Hope you and your woofers can make it back for another visit some time.

“A little bit of heaven”
Reviewed 26 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

had a fab week here. Wall to wall sunshine every day. Perfect accommodation and 5* food. Nicking is so knowledgeable about the area and is ever willing to help. Her cooking is to die for and the accommodation was warm, cosy and home from home. So great to have a safe place for our three 'fur babies'. If you want a lovely place, good food and a warm welcome then it's the place for you. Thank you Nikki and Jay. Will definitely be returning.

Well, our guests don't usually come to Wales for the weather but you certainly got it the week you booked Carol & Joe! What kind comments and I'm so pleased you enjoyed my food - especially as you had it every night! Really pleased to hear you'd like to return with your gorgeous woofers :)

“excellent location for dog friendly holidays”
Reviewed 20 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Stayed a couple of weeks in March in Bay Tree Barn, it's a cosy welcoming cottage with an enclosed garden and stunning views. On the night we arrived had one of Nikki's meals, it so easy when you've just arrived and the food is excellent and delivered to your door. We also arranged for Tesco to deliver all the food and wine we needed it's so easy, and far less hassle than going shopping.
From the door its a short walk the forestry which has good walks for the dogs, and a few minutes drive away are a number of walks suitable for all levels of fitness.
Nikki and Jay are great hosts and will do what they can to make your stay comfortable and have a lot of information on dog friendly places to eat and visit.

Thanks a million for your kind review Rosemary. It's not often we have guests for a 2 week break - it felt like you'd moved in! Really pleased you enjoyed yourselves and had some good weather. It was an absolute delight having more Beagles about the place too! Thanks for your company at Llansteffan - a truly wonderful doggy day out. Hope to do it again some time :)

Alicia thank you for our 100th 5 star review! I'm so pleased you both enjoyed your stay in Bay Tree Barn. It was a 1st for us to have guests arrive by train/taxi and have no transport for getting further afield however you kindly put my mind at rest with tales of your fabulous walks from the door and wishes to return. It's handy that Tesco's deliver! Hope to see you again here very soon.

We had a brilliant few days with the dog. Accomodation was exactly as it was described. Nikki was a brilliant host and her cooking warmly welcomed after a day on the beach. A beautiful setting for a tranquil holiday. Lovely beaches within easy drive. Will be telling all we know with dogs about it.

“Amazing dog friendly holiday!”
Reviewed 13 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed for a long weekend in The Old Bike Shed and couldn't be happier! The accommodation was perfect, very cosy and clean with plenty of local information. Our host Nikki was also incredibly helpful with suggestions for local dog friendly activities and eateries, as well as a superb cook!
The barn has a fantastic location for woodland walks and is easily accessible. The hospitality was superb and I couldn't recommend it enough.
Can't wait to book our next adventure! Thank you to Nikki & Jason, a great team supplying fantastic holidays for the dog friendly market!
