We were handed a flier with the opening times of rides, the animal handling started 10minutes later than stated, and nobody turned up to supervise/operate the outdoor slide. There were no animals about other than some goats by a stage and... More

I am sorry that you were disappointed with your visit and that the animal handling session did not start on time. I will look into this issue. In the winter the entrance prices are significantly reduced to reflect the reduced number of attractions open. Sometimes when it is quiet and the weather is bad our attraction supervisors do not stand... More

Went on a filthy, rainy day but was allowed to go on a pre-booked hack. Horses and ponies seemed well cared for and the horse facilities were good. Other facilities food was fine and staff helpful. Really a good place for families I would say with plently of activities whatever the weather.

Really is worth searching out, whilst tucked away, the setting us beautiful with the backdrop of mountains and lolling fields. The centre is great in a far more rustic setting than illustrious competitors.

Set in a simply beautiful location near Brecon, this is great place for those with little kids. Fun activities with really friendly staff makes everybody feel at home, and gives this farm a truly relaxed and stress free environment for adults. The views of Pen y Fan and the Black Mountains are worth the entry fee alone.
