“What a find and what a welcome for you and your pets!!”
Reviewed 26 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed at Bay Tree Barn with Millie our greyhound, and as we drove along the bumpy track, immediately felt at home. we received a warm response from Nikki (and took delivery of a wonderful pre-ordered apple cake).
The barn is well furnished and well equipped, perfect for couples/ families with or without pets, (though this is the most really pet friendly place we have ever rented).
Peace and quiet are in abundance. The barn is well positioned for visits to beaches and/or forest walks. Food can be pre ordered and delivered to your barn (good menu to choose from) and if energetic you can take advantage of Jason's mountain bike hire.
There are so many places to visit. we discovered Pembrey Country Park leading to a wonderful beach where it was safe to let Millie have a good run - she loved her holiday too. Our holidays are already booked for this year, but I am certain that we shall return in 2015.

“Excellent in so many ways”
Reviewed 21 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We visited with our teenage son and dog in May 2014 for a 5 day stay. Having read the previous reviews on Trip Adviser we were looking forward to a good holiday and our expectations were exceeded.

The cottage was lovely, warm and had amazing views. Nikki and Jason were excellent hosts, providing helpful advice on walks and places to visit. On two evenings we dined in: Nikki is an great cook and her Welsh Apple cake was so good and kept us going all week.

Our teenage son went on a guided mountain bike ride with Jason, departing from the cottage door, returning home to exclaim it was ''awesome' - not a statement previously heard before.

My husband was delighted not to be on a mountain bike. We spent days walking in the stunning forests and deserted sandy beaches. A truly memoreable break even the weather was kind to us.

If you are looking for a relaxing (or adventurous mountain bike) holiday in a remote but beautiful place, with excellent hosts and food and truly dog friendly accommodation - this is the place for you.

Our only concern is that it might become too popular for us to book again but some places are just so good they need to be shared.

“Completely relaxing beautiful location fabulous hosts”
Reviewed 16 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Stayed for a long weekend with hubby and two teenage boys and our Goldie. Easy to find, breathtaking views, cosy and comfy cottage, peaceful and very lucky with weather. Nikki so helpful on arrival and also when we forgot things !! Boys loved their mountain bikes hired from Jason at short notice. Sorry. Fantastic bike trails and walks. Nikki and Jason have thought of everything and felt comfy to ask if we needed anything. Wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you Nikki and Jason. Fantasy place look forward to returning. Sue Rik Harry and Tom and big thank you from Brooke too.

We have recently spent 3 nights at Bay Tree Barn with girls and dogs and we had a brilliant time. With mountain walks, miles of forest and stream walks and beaches within reach could not have found anywhere better. The cottage is in a lovely quiet spot with great views and felt like home immediately. It is nicely furnished and has a very cosy woodburner should you not have the lovely sunshine we enjoyed. Nicki and Jason made us feel welcome and were very helpful.

Weve always found it hard to find a holiday that will take us with our 5 dogs. Our dogs were not just tolerated but accepted as our family! A big thank you to Nikki and Jason! Bay tree barn is cosy and catered for all our needs! Wonderful walks around the area and Nikki's Chilli Con carni is fab! We will def be booking again.
