The Fron is a luxuriously comfortable farmhouse set in a spectacular location with panoramic views where 10 guests can choose from 5 fabulous bedrooms with king sized beds and enjoy panoramic views over the surrounding hills and valleys.  There are 4 modern bathrooms, a large sauna and in the garden is an outdoor hot tub.

There is wonderful walking directly from the house which sits at approximately 1000ft above sea level, with foot paths leading directly onto the Eppynt mountain range north of Brecon.

Accommodation:

Sleeps 10/12 - 5 King-Size Rooms, 2 of which can be turned into family rooms with the use of guest beds, 4 bathrooms

There is a professionally designed catering kitchen with marble works surfaces and hand made oak doors, windows and units, making cooking for a large group of visitors easy with a  "Rangemaster" gas  cooker with 4 ovens and 8 rings and a Belfast sink. An American style "Rangemaster" fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, ample work and storage space, dining table and chairs. A large oil "wood burning effect" stove set in a massive stone inglenook fireplace with a magnificent great oak lintel.  A comfortable sofa in here ensures this is also a room to be able to "take a break whilst cooking"!

Games room with full size Pool Table, I-Pod Docking Station and Television.

Utility room and storage rooms with washing machine, tumble dryer, a large freezer, second fridge, sinks and ample storage.

A downstairs cloak room - with hand basin and toilet.

A smaller sitting room or snug with TV with DVD set off the kitchen with French door leading out to the terrace and gardens - this would perhaps be a good place for children to be able to watch TV or play games.
The original part of this traditional Welsh Longhouse dating from the 1600's has a wealth of great oak beams with the long dining table to comfortably seat twelve guests for dinner is closest to the kitchen, a rather fine Grandfather clock, a Welsh dresser and then in the middle of this room is a wood burning stove.

A generous flight of beautiful handmade stairs leads up to the five bedrooms and there are floor to ceiling windows where the tall barn doors once were stood. 

At the end of this great barn is the sitting room with large and very comfortable sofas and chairs, more french doors leading out to the terrace and The Hot Tub and at the far end of this sitting room a "picture" windows for visitors to be able to sit indoor whatever the weather and take in the fabulous panoramic vistas - certainly enough to take the breath away.

Upstairs to 5 bedrooms and a galleried landing:

Bedroom 1:  Has wonderful views across the valley, great exposed oak beams, a fine king size bed and an en-suite  with shower, hand basin and toilet.

Bedroom 2:  A second bedroom with a king sized bed and an en-suite bathroom with free standing bath with a shower over, hand basin and toilet.

Bedroom 3: A family bedroom with a super king sized bed which can if required become two single beds and there is a further guest single bed that can be put in this room making it suitable for a family. An en-suite bathroom with a freestanding bath with a shower over, hand basin and toilet.

Bedroom 4: A very spacious bedroom with a king sized bed

Bedroom 5: A family bedroom with a super king sized bed which can if required become two single beds and there is a further guest single bed that can be put in this room making it suitable for a family.

The Family Bathroom is superb - very spacious with views again right across the valley. With bath and a separate shower in the corner of the room, hand basin and toilet

The gardens and lawns surrounding the house are superb, beautifully planted and well cared for, there is a BBQ area, lawn, a terraced area outside the sitting room accessed through the French windows, a raised decking area with tables and chairs to take full advantage of the wonderful  views. This would be the perfect spot to set up a telescope to look at the night sky - with absolutely no light pollution. Beneath the decking is the Hot Tub - again designed to be able to sit and gaze at the panoramic countryside laid out before you

This fabulous luxurious farmhouse set high in the most glorious Welsh rolling countryside in Mid Wales at the foot of The Epynt Mountain and on the edge of The Brecon Beacons National Park, situated between Builth Wells and Llanwrtyd Wells and Llangammach Wells, the Spa Towns fashionable in the early 1900's. The house is in an idyllic very private location, tranquil and peaceful - the perfect place for a get-away holiday with a group of friends and family.
Originally built in c. 1750 The Fron has been renovated to an exceptionally high standard retaining many of the original features, the great oak beams and exposed roof trusses, the  wood floors, solid oak doors and windows, all superbly hand made by local craftsmen using locally sourced wood. The bedrooms, most of which have en-suite bathrooms are all luxurious with lovely linens, new fluffy towels and complimentary soaps.
There are several local pubs serving food - the closest would be The Trout Inn in Beulah or The Prince Llewellyn Inn in Cilmery, or try The Red Lion in Llanafan Fawr. For a special meal try The Lake Hotel in Llangammach but be sure to book - also there is a lovely Spa there for a nice bit of pampering.  Visit The Abergwesyn Valley, The Elan Valley with the wonderful scenic drives around the great reservoirs and lakes, The Cambrian Hills and The Crychan Forest where there are picnic sites and mountain bike trails. This is the perfect place to stay for any events held at The Royal Welsh Showground.
