It was Halloween at the time of my visit to Cantref, which was abrilliant time to visit, with all the staff decked in Halloween costume from the minute I walked through door, it was plain to see that the owners of the Cantref, pay extreme attention to detail and have spent a lot of time making sure that the visitor experience is at any time of the year 100% I was shown around the adventure farm by the owner and he has every right to be proud of what they have done there. With Europe's longest ‘Sledge Ride' to the very funny ‘Pig Racing' , you will never get bored. As if that wasn't enough, Cantref also has a very popular ‘Riding Centre' which offers trekking, mountain riding, riding lessons, and short riding courses available to. Cantref Adventure Farm & Riding Centre is definitely worth a visit but be prepared to spend all day there as there is so much to do site to satisfy all ages.
