“Definately be back.”
Reviewed 17 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

An absolutely fantastic long weekend spent by 10 of us and our dog here. There was loads of room for all of us, and every single room was out of this world. The owner Debbie, came to see us when we first arrived to see we had settled in, but then we were left alone to do whatever we wanted. There is not one single thing that I can pick fault with, everything was superb, from the hot tub, sauna & views, to the lovely welcome pack which we were not expecting. Seriously, the photographs do not do The Fron justice. Beautiful, absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much Debbie, hopefully you will allow us to come back next year.

“Perfect location and accommodation for a fabulous family celebration!”
Reviewed 2 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

The Fron is situated on a beautiful hillside location, just outside Garth, Builth Wells. It is a stunning property, well equipped including a games room, hot tub and sauna. My husband and I booked the Fron to celebrate my 60th birthday with family and friends. We also hired Shaun, a local chef recommended by Debbie the owner to cook a special meal for us on my birthday. The meal was absolutely delicious and enjoyed by all our guests. Debbie couldn't have been more helpful and generously provided a wonderful basket of food on arrival and other 'finishing touches' during our stay. The booking was in December, and we arrived to find the Fron beautifully decorated including an enormous Christmas tree. We were kept cosy and warm by the underfloor heating and massive log burner. A perfect venue for a memorable stay. The photographs don't do it justice!

“A Perfect Family Get Away”
Reviewed 27 October 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 30 September 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 15 September 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!
