This was an enjoyable day out, with children aged 6 and 4. There were a few things the Kids loved, the 'pirate games' in the barn (themed day) was a particular hit with them. As was the sled ride, paddle boats, swamp ride and pony rides. They enjoyed looking at the small animals, and the bouncy castle. The only thing... More

We came for the Pirates and Princesses weekend and had a brilliant day! All the staff were amazingly friendly and great with all the children. Helen in the Riding Centre was lovely and our 4 and 6 year old children really enjoyed their 20 minute ride in the country!

Firstly the TOILETS are in an absolute appalling state, faeces and toilet roll everywhere even at the begging of the day & worse towards the end of the day NOBODY checks or cleans these regular that is obvious!! Which is disgusting for a children's play environment they could pick up all sorts in there!! I went to complain to reception... More

Our group stayed here recently for a horse riding weekend. The staffs attitude on arrival was very flat and uninterested, considering we were staying on the premises for the night we were given no welcome or direction. The 1/2 day explorer ride was very good although the leading instructor wasnt at all friendly and a little intimidating. We understand the... More

She enjoyed the small boats the indoor play and the animals outside. The second time we visited was when Peppa PIg was visiting which was really busy. This did mean a lot of... More

This is our second visit to cantref and again we were not disappointed. This farm is not on the scale of folly farm but fab for young children. They get to experience bottle feeding animals, tractor rides and handling of small animals, along with a lovely indoor play area and numerous other things to do outdoors. There are a small... More
