Animals appeared not as well cared for as other farm parks. Needs tidying up, it was OK but we expected more planned activities. Place just looks worn n in need of bit of maintenance. You go there for about 2 hours n you feel it's time to go. Staff friendly enough, but overall dissapointed with the visit...

I went pony trekking for an hour at the riding centre, with my two young children, and my sister. The instructor was really excellent, providing help preparing to ride, choosing equipment such as hats and boots they can lend you, and providing a good safety demonstration of how to get on etc. and lead the horse towards the mounting area....

Just had a superb half-day horse ride from Cantref. Katherine, our instructor was patient and helpful. Our horses were well behaved. Countryside beautiful. My wife and I were complete beginners. Highly recommended.

My second visit to the Brecon Beacons this year. I love animals and I suddenly got the urge to want to feed lambs. Looking on the internet, my friend found this wonderful place about 2 miles from where we were staying. We got there just as it was opening and straight away you could tell how much the staff loved... More

Took out 16month old here and she loved it. Pet handling, feeding goats and sheep. Soft play kept her entertained when we needed a sit down! And what a view of the brecons!! Yeah ok, the stuff is abit dated in places but that doesn't bother us. Well set up with something going on every half hour throughout the day.... More

I think this is slightly overpriced. We went with our family and there wasn't really much to do with some elements seeming tired and dated. The actual amount of farm animals was limited compared to other places we have visited of a similar nature. We saw Mr Evs show which was preceeded with very very loud pop music which made... More

Easter half term visit. One 3y/o Two 9y/o The swamp boat ride was good and the big grass slide was good. Easter egg hunt was ok. Toilets were very dirty, only 3 cubicles and very big queues. Went for coffee in the cafe and was told the coffee machine had broken. Gift shop hugely over priced, 3 small teddies cost... More
