Attended as part of an organised group visit. Firstly, I was very impressed that the venue opened out of season with exclusivity for our group. Not many places can say that. We arrived and were greeted at the door and directed to indoor play area to wait other members of the group. Each family were given a plan of teh... More

As a young adult i spent many years riding and around horses so I decided to get back in the saddle and try Cantref riding. My partner and I booked the two and a half hour ride which was beautiful, there is no doubt. The scenery around the centre is picture perfect, especially on a good day. The only thing... More

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
