“Amazing accommodation, fabulous food, brilliant bike trails, wonderful walks, spectacular scenery”
Reviewed 3 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The nicest place we have stayed!
Thank you Nikki and Jason for a lovely break in a truly awe-inspiring part of the country. The boys loved exploring the well-marked bike trails through the forest, and it was great for them to have use of the hose to clean the bikes up afterwards. Big thank you to Jason for fixing the 'brake' problem - much appreciated as it saved us so much hassle! Myself and the hounds loved the walks, and loved that it's so quiet, even at this time of year. We all enjoyed the view every morning from the roof windows in the bedrooms (as well as from the rest of the cottage). The beagles are so lovely too!
A quality, well equipped, cozy cottage with a calm and homely feel, with everything you could possibly need - I needn't have brought half the things that I'd packed! Well located to go out exploring the area, but equally great for staying-in. Nikki and Jason are so friendly and helpful, with great recommendations for places to visit, local (dog-friendly) pubs and eateries. At Nikki's recommendation we visited Pembrey Country Park on our last day, and the tide was out, leaving the biggest and emptiest beach I've seen, perfect for letting the hounds have a crack at breaking the land speed record! The sea was shallow and warm to play in. Looking forward to returning in the future.

Ahhhh it sounds like you had a blast! Really pleased the boys enjoyed the biking. Jason is usually around to help with mountain bike problems! Simply thrilled that you enjoyed our little piece of paradise as much as we do. Really hope to see you all again soon.

“Fantastic all you need :)”
Reviewed 3 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My daughter and myself along with our little sheltie taz stayed in the old bike shed..although compact this little gem has all you need and sitting out in rear garden with a glass of chilled wine looking over the countryside is fantastic :)
As for Nikki and Jason you couldn't hope for more welcoming owners and Nikki's food is a pleasure to have highly recommend that.

“A Unique Holiday Experience”
Reviewed 31 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

A lovely, cosy cottage with everything you need (including a hose for washing down your muddy/sandy dog - a simple necessity which is normally overlooked by cottage owners). Stunning rural views from every window. Beautiful woodland walks and wonderful beaches nearby. But what makes this holiday unique is the superb level of personal service provided - we have been staying in dog friendly holiday cottages throughout the UK for over 15 years but have never come across anything like this before. The owners are on-site and offer excellent advice on the local area, tailored to your own needs and preferences. Also offered is a menu of home cooked meals, all prepared using quality ingredients, and delivered to your cottage kitchen at a time to suit you. Portions are generous and everything we tried was delicious (welsh apple cake, lasagne, smoky sausage cassoulet). Be assured that the owner's presence is never obtrusive and you don't feel like you are being watched at all. They are simply kind and helpful people. I would not hesitate to recommend.

“Perfect holiday for all our family: mum, dad, 3 teenagers and 2 dogs”
Reviewed 27 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The most relaxing holiday our family has ever had. The scenery is breathtaking and the accommodation clean, cosy and well equipped. Nikki was extremely helpful in giving us suggestions of places to visit. We loved the well signposted walks in Brechfa and Abergorlech and also Pembrey beach, all very dog friendly. We also enjoyed our home cooked Rogan Josh and look forward to trying some more of Nikki's meals next time we visit.

“A perfect gem of a hideaway”
Reviewed 26 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I can't speak highly enough of this accommodation, location and hosts. If you are looking for peace and tranquility, with or without (but better with) your furry friends, put this high on your list of places to stay. Nikki's food is amazing too, well worth booking a few meals in. The pictures you see are not photoshopped in any way, it really is exactly like you see.

We stayed in Bay Tree Barn which is very well equipped, there was nothing we needed ask for, even comprehensive details of local walks and places to visit further afield. Very comfortable, clean and cosy. I could happily live here

For those among you that love the sea, this place is ideal to take a drive to the coast, you will pass some beautiful villages along the way.
