Perfect family getaway. Comfortable with great facilities. Home away from home. Cantref adventure park was an enjoyable day out for the kids. Swansea and its lovely beaches was only an hours drive away.Khrystle from London - 29th July 2016
Fantastic place.
Tips: Bring food with you if you don't want to go shopping, nearest Asda etc is a 25 minute driveFriends from Newport - 11th July 2016
The barn was so beautiful in the most beautifully quiet location with views of the valley. Everything in the barn was 5* and the hosts were so helpful, doing everything possible to make our stay perfect. It was the perfect location to celebrate this special event with friends and family. We found a beautiful walk and waterfall about a 20 minute drive from the barn, it was a National Trust walk and the falls were called Waterfall of the Old Ford, it was spectacular.Suzy from Bristol - 3rd July 2016
The visit was amazing, the property was spotless and very homely. The location was nice, peaceful and private. It's an amazing place and was a brilliant weekend break and I will always highly recommend.Family from Blaenau Gwent - 13th June 2016
