We have just returned from a wonderful relaxing break in Bay Tree Barn with our 3 dogs.
I was in real need of a relaxing break from the stresses of work and this was just the ticket.
After walking and mountain biking on quiet beaches and in lovely forests we all read and relaxed in front of the lovely log burner in the cozy cottage.
Humans and dogs all had a really lovely break and were reluctant to come back home.
Thank you Nikki, Jay and the Beagles! X
What a fab find this place was! After stumbling upon Brechfa Forest Barns while browsing Facebook I was immediately entranced by their wonderful cottages set out in the stunning south Welsh countryside and most importantly Nikki and Jason's clear love for animals (woofies especially!) ... The first excuse I could make for a stay (other half's birthday) and I was booking our weekend away!
When we arrived both the location and welcome we received did not disappoint! The cottages are set in such a beautiful area of Wales and we viewed our first Welsh sunset from our private patio area, it was simply stunning.
Nikki and Jason have put a huge amount of thought into the set up of the cottages, each is very private with a dog friendly garden area for those all important doggie toilet breaks and the interior of The Old Bike Shed was both quaint and charming. It felt calm and cozy and was the perfect size for our little family.
A big positive I must mention about Brechfa Forest Barns is the information guide... I have never seen one so informative and thorough, it allowed us to head straight for all of the best dog friendly beaches, woods and pubs which meant we really got to see the best the area had to offer!
To put the icing on the cake for our first night at the cottage I ordered a home cooked three course meal and it was completely delicious, the ingredients were fresh and of premium quality and all three courses were mouthwatering and tasty. Obviously a lot of thought and care has gone into the menu planning and food preparation!
My advice for anyone who is reading this is book now and see what you are missing! You will not regret it! :)
Beautiful cottages with stunning views,we booked the bbq Hut for our anniversary and it was fantastic,very cosy and beautifully decorated inside with lovely food. Will definitely be back again soon.
The perfect getaway whether you just want to relax or explore the countryside. Either way, you are surrounded by stunning scenery and there is plenty to do and see all within a 45 minute drive in any direction. These cottages are decorated and arranged to a really high standard and have that lovely cosy home from home feel.
Nikki's cooking is delicious and to a high standard and if you want the ultimate ending to your break i highly recommend you hire the BBQ hut out, that really made our very short visit and a lovely way to spend our last night there. Everything we wanted was catered for and a lot of thought and time has been put into the brochure that mentions places of interest and all the dog friendly places to visit so you can maximise your stay.
What a wonderful find - Just returned from a 4 day break with a friend and our two beagles who are now exhausted. Bay tree barn is one of the best accommodations I have stopped in, perfectly equipped with everything you need for a relaxing holiday with your pooch. Nikki's cooking is also a definite must. Fully enclosed garden so busy beagles can come in and out without worrying of escape. Great forest walks just up the road and fab beaches within a 40 minute drive away and well worth it. The barn is fully equipped with everything you need to self cater and chill out with the added bonus of a scrumptious menu on offer from Nikki the owner if you don't want to cook, comfy beds which gave me a great nights sleep. Loved everything about this place and look forward to returning. A big bonus was the weather no waterproofs were required.
