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

My Grandson's love this place and there is nothing better than gorging on a well presented jacket potato whilst the kids are supervisable from the dining tables. Great! Pricing was a bit strange in the past but I believe it's been 're organised. And don't miss the Tahitian ride. You may find yourself damp but remember "The wetter the better"!

Visited for the first time this year with my two young children. Several friends has raved about it so thought we'd give it a try. All I can say is 'ok'. It looks like it needs a good tidy up, everything looks a little tired. Not a huge array of animals to see. Kids enjoyed the indoor play area. The... More

Not a cheap day out, entry for 2 children and myself (concessionary price) was £25. The young ladies on reception were lovely and welcoming. We arrived at opening time so it was quiet for the first hour. Got very busy by lunchtime, luckily it was a warm dry day and we ate our packed lunch outside, as it can get... More

We visited Cantref in the Easter holidays. We had a lovely day out and our 5 year old and 3 year old had lots of fun feeding the lambs, on the tractor and trailer ride, the swamp ride, the paddle boats, trampolines, pet handling, pony riding as well as the play areas. So much to do that we spent the... More

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
