Fron Fach

about the property

Cosy, quirky cottage close to the beautiful beaches of Cardigan Bay. Dog proof enclosed grounds in a private, secluded location on the edge of an ancient wood. Incredibly romantic and peaceful setting surrounded by birdsong.

This delightful 1850's cottage situated on its own,at the end of a private track, in over an acre of grounds, looks directly out across the rolling countryside of Ceredigion.

This sweet rural cottage was built originally as a farm workers cottage. It has been recently sympathetically renovated to a very high standard using traditional local materials and local craftsmen.

Fron Fach is an ideal location for wildlife enthusiasts, dog lovers and walkers alike as it looks out onto woodland. Although the cottage is in the heart of the countryside, it lies only 7 miles from Cardigan Bay and the beaches of Llangrannog and Penbryn.  Dog walks from your doorstep and more beaches at Newquay, Aberporth, Tresaith and the Georgian seaside town of Aberaeron.

customer reviews for Fron Fach

Amazing place.. Peaceful and secluded.. !

Fron Fach is the most delightful little cottage, hidden up a narrow lane, in a beautiful part of Ceredigion, which is a county with plenty to explore. To say that the owners have undertaken a 'sympathetic restoration' doesn't do justice to the effort and love that has been invested, topped off with excellent good taste and quality in all the fixtures and fittings. In our 4 day stay, we survived Hurricane Ophelia and just escaped Storm Brian, but we were cosy in the cottage and delighted with our choice of holiday venue.

Wow what a wonderful place. If you are after a secluded cottage this is the one for you. The renovation of this traditional cottage strikes the perfect balance between old and new. From the attention to detail to the garden with it's various seating areas to enjoy the different views, this place rocks. When we arrived, we were greeted by 8 Red Kites circling above us, what a welcome. This was our first time using UTT, having used various other cottage letting companies in the past and if Fron Fach is anything to go by, we"ll be using UTT from now on.

It's very rare that somewhere exceeds your hopes and aspirations but Fron Fach certainly does that. From the moment we drove down the private lane everything was perfect.The cottage has an idyllic position in the woods and inside it is decorated with pieces from a talented local artist. The welcoming notes and extras provided by the owners were lovely. Did the Donkey walk and Weavers walk and lunch at Pachamamas as suggested by them. Excellent. Our two dogs and us thorough enjoyed our weeks stay. Hope to return ASAP.

From the moment we entered the cottage we felt welcomed into this warm and inviting space. Every effort has been made in this beautiful, sensitive restoration to create a relaxed home-from-home experience. A lot of thought has gone into providing everything one might need , inside and out in the garden, - even down to the emergency Marmite! It was as if the hosts had prepared everything especially for us and then just popped out on an errand. We loved staying in this peaceful cottage, surrounded by its lovely garden full of wildlife.

Wow....! Fron Fach surpassed all our expectations - the cottage has been restored to an extremely high standard, and is obviously much loved by the owners! From the perfect bathroom (roll top bath with a view of the sky) to the 'extras' (tea, coffee, wine, cheese, olives and more) We felt very spoilt - add in an amazing, properly dog-proofed garden (our Sprocker tried her best to find an escape route and couldn't!! :D) backing onto woodland, complete with ready-to-go fire-pit and this is up there as one of the nicest places we've ever stayed - we will be back!!' - Gail, Lucy and Boomer the Sprocker

This must be one of the best cottage we've ever stayed in, simply because of the attention to detail which means you can really enjoy your stay here, whatever the weather. A place to unwind and relax. The location is also brilliant - 10 mins from some lovely local beaches at Llangrannog, Tresaith and Aberporth. There is also a great Italian restaurant up the road.

If you're looking for a tranquil, relaxing, private cottage this is the place for you. The cottage is very tastefully decorated and very clean. The owners have thought of everything down to dog shampoo, towels and chewsticks. We have never stayed in such a well equipped cottage, it was like a home from home. The beds are also very comfortable. There's lots of wildlife in the secluded garden, lot''s of places to sit and relax. We would definately stay at this cottage again, it was beautiful.

We've stayed at many UTT properties over the years and Fron Fach has to be one of the best. A beautifully restored and well equipped cottage with so many thoughtful touches that made us feel like treasured guests. The garden was as lovingly maintained as the cottage and perfect for our dog as it was totally secure with lots of nook and crannies to explore. The peace and quiet and abundant wildlife soothed our souls and we came home totally relaxed. We are already planning our next visit

Our favourite UTT so far, every little detail has been thought of in this cottage. Spotlessly clean and very cosy with lovely little quirky pieces of decor. This is by far the best dog friendly cottage, the large garden is fully fenced in so you can let you're dogs explore without any worry, our 2 dogs also loved the woods at the back. We hope to return very soon, anyone booking Fron Fach will not be disappointed it's the perfect, peaceful get away with all the luxuries of home and more.

The most incredible place. The setting is idyllic and the care that has been taken to renovate and kit out the cottage is exquisite. So many little touches which show that the people behind the place are a very special pair. Can't wait to come back. Thank you.

You'll need to come a little closer as I'm only going to whisper this ... Fron fach is not average mediocre or ordinary. This pretty little cottage on the woodlands edge has been drawn together with an eye for quality and detail both inside and out. This is a turn up , have a glass of the complimentary wine , breath in the clean air , let Your eyes take in the verdant surroundings, and let the birds song fill your head. Now stop what ever you've been thinking about and let nature wrap you in a blanket of restoration. I'm whispering because the longer this place is a secret the more chance I have of getting Back to it soon Book it ... while you still can !

We loved our stay at Fron Fach. A beautifully restored cottage with everything we needed in the most beautiful setting. The cottage is a credit to the owners. It is surrounded by the most beautiful natural gardens with birds constantly darting about including a pair of red kites. Plenty of lovely places in the garden to sit back and relaxing. This little cottage will be calling us back very soon.

A little gem ..... the perfect hideaway!

Superb renovation carried out and every detail has been considered by the owner when equipping the property. Location is a hideaway where you simply switch off and absorb the surroundings. A delightful holiday - thank you very much. Would not hesitate to recommend to someone looking for R&R!
