“Stunning accomodation, location and incredible hosts! We had the most wonderful stay here and have already rebooked. The barn is beautiful, with homely touches, very family and dog friendly. Very close to local amenities and beaches, perfect to get away from it all! My children loved being able to feed the chickens and collect the eggs, see the horses, ducks and goats. Would definitely recommend!”

“Beautifully well kept holiday home, Owners are very welcoming & our stay was nothing short of delightful.
The animals on the working farm are an added bonus, Rob & Gail are a couple you can easily warm to. Would recommend a stay here to anyone considering a relaxing away from it all break. Will visit again.

“We have just stayed at the Haybarn for the fourth year as it is our favourite place. The children love helping out with the animals & collecting the eggs each day. They also like playing games in the games room & running around the garden especially when we have a water fight. The barn has everything we need & is very comfortable. Rob & Gail the owners have become firm friends & they definitely go out of their way to make sure we have a brilliant holiday. Looking forward to returning again next year.”

“We stayed as an extended family of 6 over a long Easter weekend and loved everything about the barn inside and out, the lovely owners and their hospitality, the setting and location, the welcome provisions incl chocolate Easter bunnies and brownies, the games room... everything! Would and will definitely visit again as Trehyddion is a great base for exploring Carmarthenshire. Thanks Gail and Rob!”

“Trehyddion Barns exceeded our expectations, we received a lovely welcome from Rob who showed us around the Haybarn and was very warm, welcoming and informative. The Haybarn and Longbarn are both beautiful, it was a memorable stay and we will definitely be returning. We were gifted with freshly pressed apple juice, hen and duck eggs, delicious homemade chocolate brownies and crab apple jelly, a really lovely touch to add to our great experience. Honestly can’t give this place and Rob and Gale enough credit! Thank you both, you helped us make some amazing memories that we will treasure for a long time to come. We will see you again soon xxx”

“A peaceful location just inland from the beautiful estuary. A comfortable base from which to explore the local footpaths, play on the beach and climb up to the castle at Llanstefan. Although ours was a short stay, it was sufficient time for a 'just-under-three' year old to learn the delights of feeding the goats, horses, ducks and of course, chickens. She was so thrilled to collect an egg for breakfast. A lovely facility for children on holiday. Highly recommended for families with children who aren't yet addicted to their 'phones and tablets.”

Feedback - Sep 2018

“We have had a fantastic holiday. Every morning our daughter went with Rob to be his 'farmers helper' she fed the chickens, collected the eggs, gave the horses carrots and even had a tractor ride. He made it such a magical experience that she is telling all her friends and teachers about it.

The barn is so warm and comfortable, with a good kitchen, we really enjoyed relaxing there after a long walk.

There is so much to see and do in the surrounding area, we had some fantastic walks and meals.

We will definitely be back.”

“We spent a fabulous week with friends at Trehyddion Haybarn celebrating the New Year and relaxing after a hectic Christmas. The accommodation was perfect ... warm and cosy with loads of space to chill out ... and ensuite bedrooms with showers to die for! Rob and Gail were brilliant and gave us some great tips for dining out and visiting local tourist spots. We highly recommend the accommodation for either a summer holiday or a winter break. It ticked all of the boxes!”

Gail's warm welcome and Rob's friendly advice for things to do in the area made us feel right at home. The Haybarn itself had everything we could have wanted - from the pretty touches of the fresh flowers through to the awesome showers!! We certainly hope to be back!”

The kitchen was very well equipped and there was a variety of dvds and even playing cards to keep you entertained. The owners were very welcoming and helpful and the special touches of milk, bread home made cake and delicious duck eggs were very much appreciated. My daughter loved looking after the chickens and it was very kind of Rob to show her the other animals on the farm too. It is a beautiful and peaceful setting with an excellent pub/restaurant down the road (Rob even booked us a table for here when we asked.)
We would definitely recommend the barn and congratulations to the owners for such excellent work.”

“A lovely welcome from Gail and Rob and a wonderful stay in a beautiful untouched part of the country. There's plenty to do nearby to entertain the children..even on a rainy day! Although our children would have been perfectly content to stay at the barn and play with Ben the dog and fuss over the chickens!
I particularly liked the lovely deep free-standing bath... heaven!”

“Thank you so much for letting us stay in your lovely cottage! It was so nice with the chickens, Ben the dog and the beach stuff. We have been to the beach and dug holes with the bucket. Feeding and giving the chickens water and collecting their eggs is so fun. It has been fun naming the chickens: Cooey, Cocky, Lockey and Peck. It is the best holiday cottage ever! I have really had fun in Wales. Thank you for letting us name the chickens!”

“Thank you for an amazing week here at your wonderful barn. We all loved the little touches that you provide while we are here - Grace really enjoyed her tractor rides! The weather was lovely and we really don't want to go home! We can thoroughly recommend the beach at Pembry Country Park especially if you have dogs. Folly farm is also well worth a visit with a little toddler in tow! Thanks again for a lovely week!”

Charlotte, Jamie and family, Norfolk, Sept 2012

“We have had a lovely time here this week. You have been amazing hosts and we have all had a wonderful holiday. Your barn is amazing with so many thoughful touches. The children were especially fond of the 'church chicks' although I think that Socks gave Robert a good chase! We're all very disappointed to be going home today. Many thanks for making our stay so special.”

Matthew and family, Aug 2012

“We're just back from a lovely relaxing week in Trehyddion. I'd just like to thank you for making us feel so welcome. The barn we stayed in was soooo cosy. We loved the up-side down layout, so we had the view from the living room. With Llansteffan so near, the dog had a few good runs around on the sand too. All in all, we loved our stay and would like to thank you for your warm welcome and friendliness.”

“Trehyddion Barn is a very comfortable base, thank you for the lovely welcome. Our city lads enjoyed meeting the chickens and the horses. In addition to the great beaches and days out mentioned by previous guests, we would like to add Heatherton Activity Centre near Tenby - loads for boys and girls to do and a visit to quad bike centre was also full of excitement. The National Botanic Garden of Wales is a very relaxing day out, not too much walking and they do provide a free trolley bus around the park. A big thank you to your family for their kind help, from all of us”

“We've had a wonderful week at Trehyddion Barn, from the moment we set eyes on it we were wowed. Inside everything has been so well thought out - a well catered kitchen and wonderful open plan living space which has been perfect for our 2 1/2 year old! Gail and Rob have been so friendly and welcoming and nothing has been too much trouble - our needs and wants responded to so promptly. We enjoyed the lovely touches of bottle of wine, milk, freshly laid eggs and home grown courgettes (which were delicious). The fact that beach toys are even provided makes life so much easier with a child in tow.”

We really do wish you the best of luck with your venture, as you deserve to do well. I’ll certainly recommend you to anyone I come across who wants to visit your part of Wales. We had a really lovely time and could quite cheerfully have stayed on for another week (if only I hadn’t got to go back to work tomorrow, groan!!!)”

“Gail and Rob what miracle workers you both are! Not only have you created a most beautiful barn conversion but you also organised a whole week of absolutely stunning weather! The cottage is truly delightful and we could not have wanted anything more - many thanks for those "little extras" which made us feel welcome (I especially loved your eggs...clearly very happy chickens!). We have had a fun filled week exploring beautiful Carmarthenshire - and many of the beaches( Pendine, Lydstep Haven, Oxwich Bay and Pembrey). All were stunning! The final highlight was coasteering. We enjoyed jumping into the sea and into caves. ”
