Reviewed 12 June 2018 for a stay in June 2018

On arrival I was blown away at the size of this place, it is absolutely stunning and the views are breath taking. When entering the house I was greeted by Debbie who is the owner and she made us feel very welcome running through everything, we was surprised to even have a welcome basket which had bread, butter, granola, marmalade and other little bits. We booked The Fron for a 30th birthday celebration and had some decorations which Debbie was happy for us to put banners and balloons up around the house.

The bedrooms are nicely decorated and the beds are comfy. The bath/shower rooms are stylish, clean and the baths are nice and wide/deep. In total there are 3 ensuites and 1 large bathroom which has a corner bath and a shower in, and a toilet down stairs ( 5 toilets in total)

This place has so much to offer, it really is one of the best places I have been, there is so much to do in doors as well as out. I knew they had a games room with a pool table but didn't know there was a sauna as well, the house is so big that it took us a while to come across it.

The hot tub is situated under the decking, which is beautiful specially if your in there just before sun set. One thing I would say is the hot isn't really made for 10 people but we definitely made the most of it while away for our weekend.

Me and my party have agreed to make The Fron an annual weekend break, I can guarantee that you won't be disappointed if you book The Fron.

Thank you for everything Debbie, will see you again x

“What a gem !!!”
Reviewed 9 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Just had the most wonderful break at what can only be described as a little bit of luxury in the most beautiful setting. 6 adults and 4 children with ample room to spare.Sauna, Jacuzzi, pool table/games room which were used by and enjoyed by all and all set on a hillside with a simply stunning setting. Debbie and Dave were wonderful hosts, unobtrusive yet quick to deal with any issues we had when called upon. Already booked up for next year .....quite simply a peaceful haven from the rat race to relax and recharge. No negatives whatsoever....A REAL GEM

Well, what can I say? If you are looking for somewhere in the Brecon Beacons then this is the place to come. If you are looking for somewhere secluded and away from the world then this is the place. It is a stunning property, it comfortably sleeps 10. (We were a group of 8). There is a large dining table and plenty of lounge seating to accommodate a group of 10. There are 3 fridges (one of which is a wine fridge!). The welcome basket that was left on arrival was a lovely touch. Everywhere is decorated and cleaned to a high standard and the hot tub is well looked after. Watching the sunset from the hot tub while looking at the views is a real treat! I would very highly recommend this place. If you are considering it then please just book. You won’t regret it!

“Great stay”
Reviewed 18 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

Stayed with friends in Jan 17 and then booked immediately with family for a 60th birthday. Great surroundings. An extremely high quality house great for a big occasion.
Main downside is my family like walking. A storage space for coats/ boots etc would be a welcome addition.

Many thanks for your review and for your second booking.

Your comments re the storage of boots and coats etc has got us thinking, and yes we agree that there needs to be somewhere more specific for this kind of thing. We think that now that we have changed the recycling/rubbish arrangements, and do not need as many bins/recycling boxes etc, we should have more room in the garage area. We will look at putting some racks/shelves for boots and wall hooks for coats in this area. This should be ideal as the warmth from the bio mass boiler should dry them out nicely if they are wet.

We hope this helps for when you hopefully come again :-)

Reviewed 28 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Just returned from an amazing birthday celebration at the Fron. The accommodation was perfect for the various family and friends that came to stay throughout the week. My parents stayed down at Lily Pond, which was easy for them to come up for evening meals.
Debbie was kind and attentive throughout our stay.
The pool room, hot tub and sauna meant there was plenty to do for all ages.
The beds were the most comfortable we'd ever slept in, didn't want to leave them!
The views were stunning, just a shame we didn't have a clear night to see the stars.
Thank you for making such wonderful memories for all of us xx

“Perfect for a large family get-together”
Reviewed 6 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We had a terrific break at the fron, back for the 2nd time. What to add to previous reviews? - Its a terrific house in a lovely location . perfectly peacefull. The house is large enough that enen with 10 of us + dogs it didnt feel like it at all.
The hot tub and sauna were once again the highlights for our family!
