“A Perfect Family Get Away”
Reviewed October 27, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

I have just returned from a week at The Fron with my family. We ranged a 15 year old boy to 81 year old Grand Parents and we all absolutely LOVED it! We also took our two collies who had a great time too! The Fron is decorated and equipped to the very highest of standards and has EVERYTHING you could need. The rooms were large and beautifully decorated, the bathrooms perfect with gorgeous fluffy towels and the kitchen and living rooms were amazing. Plenty of room to relax, socialise, dine and play. Even a large group would be able to find a quiet spot. My two teenage sons were happy with the speed of the Wi-Fi (VERY important apparently and even good enough to play Xbox One!), loved the Pool table/Game Room (as did we as parents. Great family fun!) and spent as much time as possible in the Hot Tub. Even my elderly parents enjoyed the Hot Tub and the view of the stars from it (and around the whole property) is amazing on a clear night. The views of the surrounding area are spectacular and the owner could not have been more helpful. A really lovely lady. There are plenty of pubs and restaurants within easy driving distance most of which are dog friendly, but if you don't want to go out the kitchen is well equipped and the two dining areas give plenty of option to eat in. We would all highly recommend The Fron and hope to return very soon!

“A truly hidden gem with great panoramic views”
Reviewed September 30, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Stayed in "The Fron" with family as a 90th birthday treat for our mother! Having arrived first, my son sent a text saying "amazing" and so it was!
The house was spacious, with great attention given to detail. Plenty of seating inside and out. Quality furniture. Large en suite bedrooms, comfy beds, beautifully decorated. The kitchen was so well equipped it was a pleasure to be cooking. Not to forget that the owners had left a welcome basket on the kitchen table, with eggs, bread, biscuits, fruit and more! To add to our delight, off the kitchen there was a pool table, games and music in a separate room. plus a laundry in another room.We took our aperitifs in the hot tub admiring the sunset each evening and some of us took advantage of the sauna! To sum up "what an amazing experience. Full marks to the friendly owners. Do try it out for yourselves, you won't be disappointed!!

“THE BEST!”
Reviewed September 15, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Wonderful 'cottage' with everything necessary to make our holiday perfect. The owners were really attentive and helpful, and quality of furnishing, linen, was beautiful. The building has been renovated to the highest standard, with oak floors and staircases, modern bathroom fittings, sauna & hot tub.
We shall definitely be returning!

“Great Views, plentiful space and hot tub!”
Reviewed August 6, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had a great stay at the Fron. We were a party of ten, three families holidaying together, two of our party stayed in the nearby lilypond chalet. There was plenty of space in the property for us (adults and children) all to spread out, plus the lovely courtyard outside with multiple seating options. The hot tub was a brilliant bonus from which there are lovely views of the distant hills. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for somewhere suitable for a large group/extended family.

“Outstanding!”
Reviewed February 12, 2016 for a stay in June 2015

A group of 8 of us stayed here for 2 nights in June 2015 for my hen weekend. Wow! It's breathtaking from the moment you pull into the driveway. Beautiful scenery to start with,completely private and not overlooked at all. The house is stunning - beautiful, modern decoration throughout, very clean and even though it is huge, it still feels really cozy. The facilities were second to none and even though we didn't have the weather,it didn't matter as we spent the evening drinking wine in the undercover hot tub while admiring the spectacular scenery. We had an amazing weekend and didnt want to leave! I would not hesitate to stay here again!

Many thanks for your lovely review. However I just want to clarify that the "summer house" is called Lily Pond Lodge, which sleeps 2, and has to be booked separately to The Fron. It is not automatically included in a booking for the main house - Many thanks
