Went in February to go horse riding and this was the only horse riding centre which was centred in the Breacons which was open all year round. I paid for the red kite horse riding expedition which was great value for you get! The staff are knowledgable, show you clearly what to do, the horses were well looked after and... More

A great day for all the family from Grandparents to 3 families with 2 year olds. At £6 each you get a whole days worth of entertainment. Would definitely go again, maybe before this holiday has finished!

If you're going to visit here, go when there's something interesting going is scheduled to happen! Went in February. The place seemed miserable quite frankly. The farm part is so haphazard. There was one sheep, a few goats and ducks but none to be 'petted' or interact with. Few rabbitts and guinea pigs but nothing worth paying for. The slides... More

Cantref Farm is a great day out for both adults and children alike. The farm is in the countryside, easy to find as long as you follow the horseshoe sign in Brecon. There is a souvenir shop an indoor area with slides etc and a large restaurant. The outside has another indoor area, a little like a large shed, this... More

We visited with our 1yr old and 5yr old. There was plenty to do and the staff were very helpful. We loved the sledge ride and the swamp ride. The soft play was perfect for our young children. The food in the cafe was delicious and freshly cooked. The leek and potato soup was really yummy!. We will be back!

Visted today with my 3 year old and baby. Positives first The staff were nice and friendly and its nice that you can eat while kids play in the softplay. Food was also good. Negatives were the actual park really. Seems like a blind person has designed it with no real paths or direction of movement around the park. Animals... More

Brought our friends 3 year old daughter, Lily, here in the summer as she is obsessed with animals. First thing she wanted to do was go and see the goats. The goats were in a well spaced pen along with horses, sheep, pigs and donkeys in separate pens. You could tell all were well looked after and were happy. We... More

we had a great afternoon here with friends but quite expensive if you are on a budget (£34 for 2 adults 2 kids), would have been good if they offer half price if you come back within 6 months or some other offer for the price. With the money they are making you would think that some would have been... More

Thank You for your 4 star review. We are glad your children loved their visit to Cantref especially handling the animals and playing in the indoor play-areas. We do have a business plan prioritising investment in new facilities and refurbishment. We would love to be able to do a complete refurbishment in one go but as a small family run... More
