  • A large and hearty farmhouse with panoramic views on the edge of the Brecon Beacons
  • Relax in your own sauna or the outdoor hot tub
  • Set off on adventurous walks straight from your door, into the Eppynt mountain range
Property code: BN162

A luxurious and historic house fit for a party. Bring your family and friends to flit between the pool table, the hot tub and the Welsh hills.

The farmhouse is set in an elevated, remote position on the hillside, looking out on the mountains north of Brecon. Walks and hikes abound from your door. Head into the Eppynt mountains for a group hike or venture to the pretty village of Beulah for a pint in the local inn, 5 miles away. Try a bike trail around the Crychan Forest, 8.5 miles away, or head north 20 miles to explore the reservoirs around the Elan Valley.

The farmhouse was originally built around 1750 and retains many of its traditional Welsh features, including oak beams and a vast inglenook fireplace. Enter and you’ll find an open-plan living space. Sets of French doors lead out to the patio and garden. Enjoy cooking together in the chef-designed kitchen, complete with a Rangemaster gas oven and an American-style fridge/freezer, then settle down around the dining table for a family dinner. The living space is warm and cosy, with a wood burner for extra heat. When you’re all tired out, five large and luxurious bedrooms await upstairs off the galleried landing. Three of the bedrooms have an en-suite bathroom, and there’s another family bathroom in addition.

Add a competitive edge to the holiday in the games room which has a full-size pool table and TV, or head out to the delights of the garden. Soak in the hot tub in the hillside air or unwind on the terrace, enjoying the mountain views.

Stunning house in an idyllic setting with the best views - perfect for a big family get together. Beautifully appointed with everything you could ever need all thoughtfully provided, from ample kindling and firewood, to a Welcome basket stuffed full of tasty goodies (and one for the dog too!) in the enormous well stocked kitchen. Fantastic hot tub Read more/ pool table / sauna - the list goes on, and good walks pretty much from the front gate. Incredible restoration job. We loved the Fron! Hide

The Fron was perfect. Amazingly well equipped to cater for a group of 11 (8 adults & 3 children) All the beds were super comfortable and the underfloor heating was delicious. The Fron is fairly out of the way but super quiet and set in the most amazing countryside for walks. The owners were on hand but not intrusive, made sure the heating fuel was Read morestocked, rubbish removed regularly and the hot tub was clean. We loved the sauna and had lots of fun setting up our pool league in the games room. Hide

A stunning house in an amazing location! I don't see how you could be disappointed with this place. The only downside is it's so nice, you don't want to leave it to explore!! The place is huge and easily accommodates the maximum number of people it's advertised for in total comfort and with room to spare!

The Fron is an amazing property in an equally impressive location. The views are spectacular and the isolated setting allowed our group a wonderful week of relaxation, the tranquillity only ever broken by the occasional boom from the artillery range over the distant hills! We left with many amazing memories including our nights spent in the hot tubRead more, having a BBQ with a view and daily visits from the cheeky local farmers dog! We would definitely recommend and visit again. Hide
