We were met by friends of Riv to the accompaniment of Welsh choirs on the car radio during our Offa's Dyke Walk. Despite not being 100% well that day Riv (and Diana) had afternoon tea and cakes all ready and waiting. What a spectacular location this lovely house is set in. Our rooms were very comfortable. Breakfast was served and... More

My husband and I stayed for two nights at Fron Frys in May, 2014. The location of this unpretentious bed and breakfast is breathtaking; the atmosphere is convivial and relaxed and Riv (the owner) is charming. We loved having breakfast (very good) in the farmhouse-style kitchen and chatting with Riv whilst he cooked a full-Welsh on the Aga. (On both... More

We stayed for one night on the Offa's Dyke walk. Riv was an excellent host, picking us and delivering us back to the path, offering tea and cake on arrival and cooking a delicious breakfast. In addition he ran us to the local pub for our evening meal. Although not en suite, we had our own private bathroom facilities. Our... More

I'd have loved to give this wonderful B&B a 5* rating, and if I was rating it just for the hospitality and the delightful Riv Carter whose home it is, I'd give it 6, but I know that for some other travellers the slightly dated air of the fittings, the fact that it's not en suite, and the lack of...

My friends had just moved to Oswestry and I had to find accommodation quickly. This place came up on the internet and I was so pleased with my stay ...

Amenities

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A converted farm building in elevated position with views over Ceiriog Valley. Ideal family holiday for visiting Llangollen with its canal and steam railway, 4 National Trust properties with their weekend events and border town of Oswestry and City of Chester. The original farm house known as Fron Frys was demolished 30/40 years ago. In 1988 Jean & Riv Carter purchased the old farm buildings and converted these into a house for their own use. Jean died in 2000 and Riv, a retired bank manager, decided in 2003 operate Fron Frys for "bed and breakfast" purposes. Interpreting the meaning of Welsh place names can be difficult. With regard to Fron Frys, ''fron'' is from "bron" meaning breast referring to the breast of the hill. "Frys" is not so obvious. ... more   less

“If you are a family Riv has a whole wing just for them. Double with twin right next door and large family bathroom.”

“The twin-bedded room has wonderful views and a private bathroom up a very short flight of stairs. There isn't a tv in the room (not a necessity for us) but there is one for the use of guests in the conservatory, which overlooks the valley.”
