Wonderful Family Day Out

Took our two year old son here last week whilst on holiday in the area and I was very impressed. A good value entry price for the amount of attractions on offer. Its in a beautiful setting and it was great to see that most activities were outside so parents can enjoy the view and in our case the hot... More

We (my wife, 3yr daughter and myself) came to Cantref on a Monday in June. That meant we were off-peak season and midweek. From the beginning, the staff were very helpful, willing to give advice on the best things to do and when. Unfortunately, we were there at the same time as a (relatively small) school trip. I say it... More

Really enjoyed my family day out at this attraction. My son is only two and a lot of family attractions are no good for a child of his age but there was nothing he couldn't go on and he had an fantastic day out. The staff were friendly and helpful, even on entry as my son was on the height... More

If you are thinking of an idyllic pony trek through the national park, do not take this one. Majority of the ride was on the road and that was a most unpleasant and frankly dangerous ride. The guides horse was skittish, terrified of bikes for examples (handy when you are sharing the road with cyclists!!) resulting in all the horses... More

We were quite disappointed with Cantref Adventure Farm. We had read the great reviews, and by the looks of the website it seemed to be a nice big farm with lots do do. Unfortunately we didn't think that all all. The farm was small, children s play area's needed an update, hardly any animals at all. Luckily it was a... More

We went here as a family of four in term time. For what you get I thought the entrance cost was high. There wasn't many visitors there and staff were very relaxed with sticking to opening times etc. Every time we wanted to go on a ride we had to look for staff which was a bit of a pain.... More

We are regulars at Cantref and this year have bought a season pass. We travel to Brecon from Cardiff almost every weekend and it is 100% worth it! My son likes to bring one of his cousins or a friend and they can spend the whole day in the inside or outside play areas without getting bored. We tend to... More

Easy to find location, situated on the edge of the Brecon Beacons. As an experienced rider I really enjoyed my ride on Giles, nice canters across the beacons and enjoyed crossing the river. My partner was a complete beginner and was well looked after by Luke. Large range of hats, boots and jackets to borrow if needed. Good demonstration to... More
