Great family fun filled day!

A little tricky to find but well worth a visit. Great interaction with the animals especially feeding the lambs. No fast or expensive rides, beautiful setting & friendly staff.

This was very easy to book online. The staff are competent and friendly, and our guide (Kathy) really enhanced the enjoyment of the ride with her friendly, helpful style. The ponies are very well-trained and the area's natural beauty makes this a fantastic experience

Simply stunning scenery and fantastic weather for the half day Explorer ride. The horses were very well behaved and there was no pressure to canter. I rode Kit, who was very sure footed and had a lovely temperament. Yes, there is a long, stony bridle path, followed by a stony Roman road, which led onto the hillside and the most... More

There's a lot of people moaning on this site about this place but I have visited a lot of places throughout Wales the last few years and Cantref farm was definitely one of the most welcoming places I have ever been. I had a 5 year old and a 1 year old baby and the place was adequate for both... More

I am glad you enjoyed your visit to us in May. I am sorry that you were disappointed with your group visit in September. When we have groups in during term time we design a programme with as many activities we can pack into the short time scale groups usually have as possible. Group visits usually have more emphasis on... More
