My wife and I stayed here with three dogs, second week of July for 4 nights!
We are small business people ourselves and just love getting away with the dogs to unwind and well you couldn't do anything other than that in these idyllic barns and location.
The surrounding areas for getting out about with dogs is incredible but knowing you are returning to this standard of accommodation and hospitality is worth every single penny!
We hope to return ourselves, but it is a must if you looking for quality, tranquility and great stress busting!

Perfect location for anyone wanting a peaceful holiday in a stunning location. Ideal for those who enjoy sharing their holidays with their dogs. Accommodation is really dog friendly and we were able to take Nikki's advice to us on arrival that we could relax -Morrissey our labrador was every bit as welcome as us. There were walks from the door and the amazing Brechfa Forest to explore. The coast is within an easy drive if the dog fancies a beach walk and there are plenty of castles to visit! Nikki gave us a great welcome on arrival and lots of information about the area. We didn't get time to see all the amazing things in the area so of course we would love to return. Although the weather wasn't brilliant I can't describe how magical it is to walk in the forest in the rain. Thank you for a lovely week Nikki we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves xxx

“Wonderful break!”

Just got back from a week staying at Bay Tree Barn. Everything about the stay was perfect. Amazing views which changed with the time of day and weather, forest walks on your doorstep, dog friendly pubs nearby and so easy to get to lots of different prime areas ie Pembrey which has the best beach I've ever seen in the UK, (miles of dog friendly sandy beaches) the quaint seaside town of Aberaeron with its colourful painted houses. So many varied places to visit and all very dog friendly. If you don't fancy cooking or eating out Nikki cooks the most amazing home cooked food, her lasagne was to die for. Teddy had the most wonderful time and even made holiday friends with the dogs in the other barns. Nikki and Jason couldn't have been more helpful in suggesting places to go. Really was a wonderful break.

“Amazingly beautiful and totally perfect.”
Reviewed 24 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Well how many ways can you describe perfection? I'll give it a go. The setting for the barns was absolutely beautiful. Rolling hills, sheep dotted about, stunning views, lovely walks literally round the corner.

Nikki greeted us and showed us round, you couldn't ask for a nicer, friendlier or more informative host.

The barn was everything we expected and more. Spacious and had everything that you could need/want. Sitting room was big, kitchen fully equipped. Bedrooms are also perfect.

Totally dog friendly doesn't do the barns justice. I've never known Archie to be so chilled and relaxed when he wasn't at home. That speaks volumes about the atmosphere that's created by Nikki and Jason.

There is so much to do in the area, walks in the forests, nearby and further afield. Beach walks only a matter of a short drive away. Local places of interest, lovely pubs, dog friendly etc, castles, bay harbours, just so much to see and do.

We didn't choose to have the homemade food that Nikki offers, but I think we will when we visit again.

All in all: perfect! If you're thinking of going somewhere to relax and adventure in equal measure then look no further!

Can't wait to visit again.

Helen, Eileen and Archie.

We've just returned from a relaxing 4 night break. Beautiful accommodation & surroundings with fabulous views. A super dog friendly place & lovely dog friendly local pubs & beaches to visit. Nikki & Jay are fabulous, making us & our Newfoundland, Moose, feel very welcome. They are on hand to give advice on the best places to visit, should you need it. We loved it so much we've already booked again for next year! A must for anyone looking for a peaceful dog friendly holiday.

“Amazing week away!!”
Reviewed 4 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Just got back from a midweek break and wow what a break it was!! Weather was nearly as amazing as our accommodation and surrounding views, which were spectacular. I would recommend this break to family and friends, like us they will not be disappointed. Nikki and Jason have created something really special and we wish them every success with it. Honey will miss Cookie & Woody but I think she had a soft spot for Oscar .

“Excellent Holiday from start to finish”
Reviewed 25 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

If you have dog's to take with you on holiday this is a great holiday property in a fabulous location. Nikki and Jason are so friendly and helpful and you will be made to feel welcome from start to finish. We took 4 giant breed dog's with us and they were no trouble at all and were also made to feel very welcome. The holiday property it's self is ideal, clean and tidy with all the amenities you will need inc Wi-Fi. Nikki does evening meal's on site if you didn't fancy going out or cooking, we had one on the first night of arrival and it was fabulous and plenty too. Pub's in the area are great for allowing dog's, two of them we went to allowed all the dog's in beside us while we had our meal and with 4 giant bread dog's there wasn't much room for anyone else but the landlords were more than happy to have them in. Upon arrival Nikki will go through all the great locations on where to eat out and day's trips out which is very handy. As soon as you step outside the views from the barn are great. The walking area's around the holiday location are perfect you can just let the dog's off and let them run round the forests to there hearts content. There's plenty of water sources around for the dog's as ours love swimming in the river, paddling in streams or visiting the seaside, you are never to far away from any of them. All I can say for a holiday property that accepts dog's and any number this is a great stay that you will thoroughly enjoy.

Wow - we are so thrilled with this very kind review. We truly love to hear our guests have enjoyed their stay. And it is great to hear you found the local area, pubs etc as dog friendly as we are. We know this of course but it is very valuable information given in a review as future guests love to hear genuine details from actual guests. Thank you very much - you and your 4 giants are welcome back any time!
