“Wonderfully relaxing truly dog-friendly holiday”
Reviewed 5 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

Wonderful clean, cozy & high standard accommodation with wonderful, ever-changing views across the countryside. So rare to find somewhere that recognises your dog is part of the family and needs a holiday too!
Perfectly located for gorgeous beaches and treks through the Brechfa Forest, the Bike Shed provides a wonderful home from home base in which to relax after a day exploring glorious South Wales. The beaches at Llansteffan and Ferryside stand out in particular and my dog was so excited!!!
Nikki was extremely welcoming and provided all of the information I needed to know - she'd thought of everything, including information on dog friendly places to eat (very important!) .
Stayed for a short break and wished I could have stay longer, but will definitely be going back sometime soon I hope. Highly recommend Brechfa Forest Barns!

“Welsh break”
Reviewed 4 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

Booked a last-minute 4 day break and couldn't have been more pleased
Lovely place with tremendous views - we stayed in the Old Barn with our dog - great accommodation with a large kitchen / sitting area and a log burner
Nikki, the owner, was tremendously helpful and gave great recommendations - beaches, fish and chips, trails etc
We'll definitely be going back

“This time a family visit”
Reviewed 3 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

After coming to Jay & Nikki’s for several years as a ‘MudTrekker’ and then bringing my wife last December, we thought we'd have another visit with our 2 girls (7 and 14) for the Easter Holiday. We stayed in Bay Tree Barn and had a wonderful week. Although the weather wasn't looking great, we managed to easily fill our week with walks, shopping and bike riding. Brechfa is so well located you have so many options for places to visit. The kids loved it and want to come back again...so we will! :-)

“AMAZING!!”
Reviewed 3 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We’ve just spent a week in the wonderful Old Bike Shed. The cosy, comfortable retreat had everything we needed for both human and doggy family! The information folder provided was second to none and included all the infornationnneeded for a wonderful, stress free stay! And if there’s anything you need, Nikki and Jason are on hand to help!
The surrounding area is a perfect doggy playground, from the nearby extensive and beautiful Brechfa Forest to the surrounding beaches of Newquay, llansteffan and Pembrey you’re never short of something fun to do! Hope to visit again in the not too distant future

Reviewed 17 March 2018 for a stay in February 2018

Stayed in the old bike shed which is WOW! Cosy, home from home, everything you need, wonderful bed & linen. Amazing views with lots of birds. Lovely private patio area for warmer days.Fabulous food throughout and BBQ hut is brilliant. The best part.....(only kidding Nikki!)... the ride with Jay in the snow and some wicked downhill sections.
can't recommend enough. would love to bring family back to stay in all accommodation!

So glad the 2 cottages opened up as 1 large cottage served your family well for your getaway break. Thrilled too that you loved the BBQ Hut as much as we do. Thanks for taking the time to review us. We hope you'll return soon.

“Amazing dog friendly hols”
Reviewed 17 February 2018 for a stay in February 2018

What a gorgeous part of the world! Perfect dog walking country with a mix of stunning beaches and beautiful forests. Our pup loved it (and is now shattered!).

The Hay Barn was a perfect relax retreat with stunning views and great hosts (who gave really helpful tips; were always on call but ultimately left us to it). Would recommend to do a trip with friends and have the two barns - worked really well.

BBQ hut is a unique and special treat for an evening.

Lots of choice of dog friendly pubs - Black Lion in particular.

We will come again - would love to see in the spring or autumn!
