For MOUNTAIN BIKERS the Brechfa Forest Trails are world-renowned and almost unlimited fire tracks start opposite the barn entrance. The location also makes us a great base for a tour of the Welsh trail centres plus we have our own resident MIAS MTB guide.
The Brecon Beacons are just a short drive away and there are plenty of popular ATTRACTIONS nearby including Aberglasney House and Gardens, Carreg Cennan Castle, Oakwood Theme Park, The National Botanical Garden of Wales and many more.

We have to say this is the best place in Wales that we have ever stayed. Food was outstanding, the company was excellent and there is so much to see and do. Great accommodation - an amazing cottage with beautiful views in a wonderful location. Looking forward already to our next visit. Can't wait to come back. We can thoroughly recommend Nikki's Lasagne and Carrot Cake! Pembrey Country Park is a great day out for everyone. ADAM & VICKI BUICKS
Fantastic location for the best of South Wales Mountain Biking, Brechfa Black, Red, Blue & Green rated trails within a couple of miles, Cwm Rhaednr & Afan slightly further, explicitly remote location, with Guide available (Jason). Sumptuous food to recharge you! topped off with cosy rustic accommodation with views to die for! This is one to keep to yourself! RICHARD & DEB SHARKEY
We've had a great time - lovely cottage, great views topped up by your warm hospitality! We normally have gone to cottages "away from the owners" - if they were all like Nikki & Jason then we might change our minds!!! We wish you all the best with this new venture. LINDA & DEAN STOCKTON
What a fantastic location for Mountain Biking...right on the edge of Brechfa Forest with some of the best and most challenging trails south of Scotland. A great guide in Jason, all topped off with five-star accommodation and food the feeds your soul as well as your belly. Within shouting distance of the Pembroke and South-West coasts too. Marvellous! SIMON & EMMA DUFFILL
Thanks, Nikki and Jason for a beautiful and restful holiday. A cosy home in a spectacular location - who could ask for more? Such wonderful hospitality and personal attention are not often found these days. So much to do in the area - we'll have to come back! You have put love and attention into every detail. What a beautiful place to stay. We wish you every success in the future. NIC, ROWENA & ZOE VOSS
We have had the most fantastic time staying at Bay Tree Barn. I'm not sure who enjoyed it more, us or the 9 dogs! We will definitely be ordering more food next time...the Welsh Apple Cake and Muffins were absolutely scrummy. How beautiful your holiday home is and how blessed we are to have found you! Thank you again for such a lovely time. Nikki, Jason, Woody & Cookie made us all feel so very welcome and we look forward to coming back again in September.

What a gorgeous place! We love it here. It's everything said in the info but better! Nikki and Jason are great hosts - very friendly, welcoming and hospitable. When you come, try Nikki's cooking - it's excellent - highly recommended! We had several meals and loved the lot! It's so good to come back after a day out and to have a tasty hot meal ready and waiting! This is Mountain Biker heaven! The tracks run from opposite the entrance and all abilities will find plenty to challenge them here. Perfect for walkers, nature lovers, steam train teenies (at least 5 within the hour), fantastic beaches etc, etc, etc and 'escape from a mad world' enthusiasts. We loved the peace and tranquillity. Thanks for making us so welcome. Fantastic meals and a lovely barn. We will be back. Best holiday in years! P.S. The picnic was awesome - many thanks! THE MESSENGER FAMILY
Wow, this place is amazing! Feels just like home, only more luxurious! Stunning views, so peaceful AND nice comfy beds. Fantastic mountain biking at Brechfa, and we loved taking our dog for walks in the beautiful Welsh countryside. A perfect getaway. And you've got to try Nikki's chilli. We'll be back! Well done guys. This place is awesome! TOM HUTTON & STEPH DUITS, MBR Magazine
My sister, our 3 dogs and I have had a fantastic week here - perfect for long walks with the dogs! We didn't get to cover half of the walks we wanted to which gives us a great excuse to come back! The barn is really lovely and every detail had been covered - including one of the most well-equipped kitchens we've come across! It's so nice to finally find quality accommodation that allows more than 2 dogs and I'd never get tired of looking at that view! Thank you, Nikki and Jason, for making us feel so welcome and to Woody and Cookie for being the dogs' new playmates. I'm just sorry we didn't get to try more of your delicious food but the veg lasagne was gorgeous - something else to rack up for next time! Thanks again. LIANNE & SAM DOW
Lovely barn. Great views and walking made all the better with the amazing weather! Nikki's food is wonderful. What a lovely idea offering home-cooked meals delivered to your door - so nice to come back from a lovely day's walking and not have to think about cooking or going back out again!
