Interaction with guests
As the key will be in the door on the day of your arrival, you can simply let yourselves in. I will pop along after you arrive to say hello, and to show you how the hot tub and sauna works, and to answer any initial questions you may have. I can also recommend things to do in the area, although you will find lots of information in the house. I will then leave you to enjoy your stay, however I am always on hand if you should have any further questions.

Just got back from a week at The Fron. Truly stunning place to spend some quality time with the family. The sauna, games room and hot tub were well used. Beautiful surroundings and the most beautiful cows. Loved it.
