about the property

Happy days, anytime of year, for you and your dogs. Dog friendly, cosy, quirky cottage, close to the beautiful beaches of Cardigan. Sheep/dog proof fencing enclose the large grounds in a secluded location on the edge of an ancient wood. Incredibly romantic and peaceful setting surrounded by birdsong.

This delightful 1800's cottage, on its own at the end of a lane, with no close neighbours, in over an acre of grounds, is perfect for that Summer and Winter get away from it all. Cosy evenings indoors by the roaring log burner with a plentiful supply of wood included or outside, amongst the trees, sitting around the fire pit listening to our resident owls hooting.

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

Fron Fach is an ideal location for wildlife and bird enthusiasts, dog lovers, cyclists and walkers alike. 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

Another lovely stay at cosy Fron Fach (postponed from March due to lockdown). We were very reassured by the extra cleaning measures put in place due to coronavirus. As always, we appreciated the little treats provided by the amazing owners, Phil and Louise, who go the extra mile for their guests. A new addition since our last visit was The Green Room tucked away at the top of the garden and we absolutely loved it. Fron Fach is a perfect oasis of peace and calm while being close to all our favourite spots on Cardigan Bay and remains one of our favourite UTT properties. Sue

The best ever cottage we have stayed in. Thank you for the input you have taken to ensure your cottage is 100% presentable. Especially in these difficult times, this is the cleanest cottage we have ever stayed in and we did not have any concerns that it was not safe. It is located in a wonderful area, close by to lots of beaches, towns and a forest, yet, secluded. Just what we needed. You own a delightful property.

We enjoyed the beautiful setting as well as the comfort of this lovely cottage. We went for various walks and a few bike rides, inspired by some routes listed here We had a splendid week and hope to go back one day. Ana and Erik

The cottage itself was absolutely stunning. We have stayed at several over the past few years but this was definitely the best as far as we are concerned and we will definitely be returning there again soon. The facilities in the cottage were fantastic, and the kitchen had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. The location was very peaceful and secluded, but not too far away from anywhere to feel completely isolated, with local towns and villages relatively close by. I cannot think of anything at all that I would change, it was idyllic

What a beautiful little cottage, the extra little touches by the owners is fantastic, we were met by a bottle of wine, and some groceries, they’ve thought of everything, even fresh flowers. I must add how spotless everything is, perfect little getaway for peace and tranquility.

What a beautiful cottage both inside and out. We had the best week helped by the elusive West Wales sun. Fron Fach is a delightful place to stay offering the tranquility of nature as it’s base but with coastal paradise within a 20 minute drive. The cottage has been tastefully restored and provides all the home comforts needed. Highly recommended especially for dog owners. We will definitely be returning to Fron Fach. Thank you/Diolch yn fawr Jeremy,Kath & Alfie dog

I could not think of a better place to have spent my 50th birthday. The house was perfect and the dogs loved the garden which I can confirm is completely dog proof. The area is great for walking. There are walks from the front door. We will definitely be going back to Fron Fach. Kathryn, Chris and the dogs.

What a delightful cottage - very welcoming and comfortable and extremely generous owners. Thank you for the fizz and treats and all the provisions provided. We spent a lovely long weekend in this cosy cottage nestled in sylvan surroundings. Great to find a place that accepts 3 dogs,lots of walks and beaches nearby. Enjoyed a meal at nearby La Calabria, authentic Italian cooking. Would definitely return!
