Our Animals at Cerrig y Barcud Holiday Cottages include goats and ponies. They are all are part of the family here, and we hope they’ll be part of your holiday too.


We have three goats at Cerrig y Barcud which we keep as pets – they are not milked.


The large brown and white goat is called Oreo and joined us in 2021. Oreo was born at Foel Farm Park. When she arrived, we asked our guest to vote on a name and the winner was Oreo given that her colouring matched every child’s favourite biscuit!

Buzz and Woody

These cheeky lads also started life at Foel Farm where they were born in late 2023. They joined us in spring of 2024 and were named after the Toy Story characters by guests staying with us at the time.

Buzz is the black goat and easily the most sociable, always curious and the first to come and say hello. Woody is a little more timid, often hanging back until he’s sure. Woody is also an incredible escapologist! Whilst we’ve worked hard to secure the paddock, this does not always prevent him from escaping!


Rupert the Pony


Rupert is a Bay (brown) coloured cross between a Shetland and a Welsh mountain pony. He was born sometime around the year 2000 and came to us from Equine Market Watch after the previous owner was no longer able to look after him.

Rupert is very loving and loves being stroked and fed. Although he’s the smallest, he’ll show Harry who’s boss whenever here’s food around!

Harry Jackson is the dapple grey, born in Mid-Wales in 2003, and sent to auction at only a few months old, unwanted because of his boxed feet.

He was rescued by Equine Market Watch and taken to their sanctuary in mid-south Wales, from where he was later brought to Cerrig y Barcud.

Our Animals - Ponies in the Snow


Martha is our feral cat, named after Dr Who’s companion! She was rescued by a local animal sanctuary and joined us as a kitten in late 2007. Martha is a working cat, and live in one of the outbuildings, mixing freely with the goats and other animals, whilst as a feral cats she will generally keep away from humans.
