“Don't hesitate-book!”
Reviewed October 3, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This was a great few days away, we stayed at the quaint Old Bike Shed with our 2 collies. We tasted Nikki's delicious meals, do try her food,you will not be disappointed. Hubby loved the mountain biking and took advice from Jason. (He hopes to book through Mud Trek next year with friends to focus on the biking) This time it was a mixture of dog walking and biking in the most magnificent countryside. The accommodation was perfect and the views just amazing. Can't wait to revisit.

“Another wonderful stay”
Reviewed September 27, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This was our second stay in Bay Tree Barn this year and once again what a lovely weekend we had with our two dogs.

Our first visit to Bay Tree Barn was so lovely it made us realise how much we would love a homely cottage everyday. We had no intentions of moving house before this trip but ended up selling our house in the city in Bristol and moving to our own cottage on the outskirts of Bristol and we are so happy there. So thank you Nikki for the inspiration.

Extremely dog friendly with so many beautiful walks nearby.

We had breakfast both mornings cooked by Nikki and the food was just as lovely as last time.

We also ate in the Daffodil which was lovely and had a great day out at Pembrey Country Park.

Lovely cottage, lovely views, lovely owners and lovely food. A wonderful home from home.

We will see you again next year.

“A heavenly place”
Reviewed September 21, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Stayed for a relaxing four nights self-catering in The Old Bike Shed, which was perfect a break for me and my Beagle. Beautiful accommodation with everything you needed and views to die for. Lovely hosts who provided invaluable local information about dog-friendly pubs, forest walks, beaches and places which shaped our daily adventures. And useful facilities to hose down a naughty dog after exploring the wild! Definitely hope to return next year.

“2nd Visit - Excellent”
Reviewed September 21, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This was our second stay at the Barns, however this time we stayed in the Hay Barn, larger than the Old Bike Shed, equally beautiful in its interior with everything you could ask for a weeks stay. We enjoyed Nikkis excellent cooking, it really made the holiday for us having the food prepared as we didn't need to think about shopping and packing lots of stuff, everything we had was fantastic and huge portion sizes so you may want to skip the diet that week! We took our eight dogs with us, not all well behaved as they are young and excitable but we were made to feel really comfortable and welcome. The walks are fantastic, we visited Pembry Country Park which was brilliant, lovely and quiet dog friendly beach and surrounding forest walks, that was approximately a 30 min drive away and well worth the trip out, that said the immediate walks near the barns are also fantastic. This was yet again a great holiday, good food, super relaxing and we will definitely be going back !

“Welcoming to All-including Sammie the ferret”
Reviewed September 14, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We had a long weekends stay at Bay Tree Barn, just us and Sammie the house ferret. We all had a lovely time. The views are breath taking and we can highly recommend the food prepared by Nikky. We were cosy and well looked after at all points, from initial enquiry to goodbyes. Beds were comfy, well equipped and beautiful Wales on the doorstep. Even in the worst weather you could hole up here and be very happy, luckily we had very good weather. Coast within easy reach and so much to do locally as well, highly recommend the Roman Gold Mine! Thanks again for being so welcoming to all of us

“Relaxing holiday away from it all,with fabulous views ! Perfect .”
Reviewed September 12, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed Monday to Friday in bay tree barn with our three dogs.

The cottage has everything you need and is warm ,welcoming and very cosy. The dogs had a lovely time exploring the beautiful beaches and the forest ,as did we .It was topped off by the lovely sunny weather ,an added bonus.

Nikkis meals are wonderful ,I can recommend her chilli con carne and her bacon baguettes ,we also had her chocolate cake ,which was to die for !
All in all a gem of a holiday home and one we hope to return to.
