Took out 16month old here and she loved it. Pet handling, feeding goats and sheep. Soft play kept her entertained when we needed a sit down! And what a view of the brecons!! Yeah ok, the stuff is abit dated in places but that doesn't bother us. Well set up with something going on every half hour throughout the day.... More

I think this is slightly overpriced. We went with our family and there wasn't really much to do with some elements seeming tired and dated. The actual amount of farm animals was limited compared to other places we have visited of a similar nature. We saw Mr Evs show which was preceeded with very very loud pop music which made... More

Easter half term visit. One 3y/o Two 9y/o The swamp boat ride was good and the big grass slide was good. Easter egg hunt was ok. Toilets were very dirty, only 3 cubicles and very big queues. Went for coffee in the cafe and was told the coffee machine had broken. Gift shop hugely over priced, 3 small teddies cost... More

We ran our annual riding holiday to Cantref from 9-12th April (staying in the bunkhouse) and had an incredible time. We were escorted on 2 day rides by Katherine who was friendly and knowledgeable, the horses were very well behaved and we had some very fun gallops!

Animal feeding and handling, we even saw lambs being born last year! Staff are friendly and helpful,full of knowledge of the animals and help engage the kids with all activities. Cafe serves food all... More

Had heard pretty good things about this place, but unfortunately did come away feeling slightly underwhelmed. First off I want to point out that I will try and be balanced... If you were to come here with say a 4/5 year old or older, I'm sure they will have an amazing time... Tearing around the place enjoying the numerous "adventure... More

Although it is the end of March next to nothing is there. A few sheep and goats, plus the obligatory rabbits and guinea pigs only. The so called Mr Evs show is a dismal failure. One round of statues and a dance, not exactly a show by any stretch of the imagination. Although a place for kids it would be... More

Spent the afternoon on the Brecon Explorer half day horse ride and what a great time we had. Our guide Katherine was wonderful, at the start we learnt how to adjust the girth and stirrups before heading out. The ride took us along lanes and bridleways, through rivers and pretty little villages. My boyfriend and I are fairly inexperienced riders... More

Wonderful staff and activities and 5 star indoor play area. The shows were great and the kids enjoyed feeding and holding different animals. Even though it rained all weekend, we still all had a great time! :) Thank you Cantref
