A great day out where the kids met Santa, one of v few grotto's operating before Christmas 2020 in S Wales. Excellent social distancing where kids had to be booked in prior to arrival so no queues before going into the grotto. Plenty of sanitizers and ample hand wash facilities. Great idea utilising horse boxes as outdoor seating for purchased food with supervised firepits nearby to keep people warm. A lovely "Santa Trail" to enjoy and take in the great views and see some of the farm animals. All in all a great value day out with everybody leaving with a smile on their face.

We went along to visit Santa during the covid pandemic. We was met by the receptionist who gave us the info pack and showed us the way to go. The farm was smaller than I expected with a few barns with donkeys and a couple of shire horses. But on closer inspection there was a person selling jams and another selling eco products with a candy floss van in the yard. The Santa trail was a path in a circle through the camping field. Not much on the trail but that didn’t seem to matter as it’s a nice stroll with the kids. This is not a glitz and glammer tourist spot but a working family run farm which makes it a great place to visit and see a farm first hand. They also have llamas and sheep out in the fields. The Santa that was there had all the time in the world with my kids he spoke was jolly and had a good laugh with us. It wasn’t a WE HAVE YOUR MONEY HERES A PRESENT NOW GO SANTA definitely worth the money. They also have a cafe on site so grab some food and support the farm. As there were a lot of restrictions because of the covid 19 a lot of activities were not available so we intent to return and have a proper experience. So in summary GREAT PEOPLE GREAT ANIMALS GREAT ATMOSPHERE

What a fabulous day out this is! Our daughter is a huge Shire horse fan and had been wanting to visit somewhere like this for ages and it certainly did not disappoint and she still describes it as the best day of her life so far! The horses are majestic and beautifully cared for as are all the animals there. Despite there being other visitors, Jenna answered all her questions (and trust me there were a lot!) and spent time with her and taught her so much. For those of us that weren't quite so into the big horses, it was an extremely interesting visit, with all sorts of different experiences and we all came away learning something new. We are hugely grateful to you for all you did for Cicely and I can assure you, we will be back! Thank you all SO much for a brilliant time and for fulfilling our daughters dream.

Thank you Elaine for your lovely review! It was a great pleasure for us to welcome you all and Cicely in particular to our farm. She clearly is very knowledgeable about horses and her enthusiasm and passion for them was clear for us all to see! We're really pleased that Genna helped her to learn even more and to allow her to get up close to our beautiful and quiet 'gentle giants'! We look forward to welcoming you all back to the farm in the future! Dyfed Shires Team

We spent a happy few hours at the farm. The shire horses are magnificent and obviously well loved. It was really interested seeing one of them harnessed up in all their finery. Huw took us on the tractor ride and was very informative, and it was fun watching the farm dog Hook chase us in the trailer. The small farm also has llamas, donkeys, Balwen sheep and a couple of cows. During these Covid times care was taken that masks were worn when necessary and that only family groups sat together in the trailer.

Thank you Sue for your lovely farm review! We're really pleased that you spent an enjoyable few hours in the company of our 'gentle giants' and friendly farmyard animals! It's great that you enjoyed our talks and of course met Hook, our very friendly and enthusiastic farm dog! We particularly appreciate your kind comments about our Covid guidelines. It has been a very challenging year but throughout this truncated summer season which only began in late July, our main priority has been the well-being and safety of our visitors and staff members. We are pleased to report that like yourself, our visitors this season have been appreciative of these efforts and have also done their bit to help us mitigate the virus in everything that we do. We hope to see you again in hopefully more 'normal' times! Dyfed Shires Team
