Fron Fawr is located just outside the village of Boncath, around a 40 minute drive from Carmarthen. Fron Fawr borders 3 counties – Pembrokeshire, Carmarthshire and Ceredigion – ensuring there is plenty to do and explore. The complex is set only a few miles from the stunning Pembrokeshire Coast and Cardigan Bay, a fantastic day out for parents and children whether for a fun day of rockpooling on the beach in summer or a winter’s walk along the famous Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion coastal paths.  A perfect spot to take in the beautiful views and maybe even glimpse a sight of the famous Cardigan Bay bottlenose dolphins! Or better still, why not take a guided boat trip around the coast to see the dolphins, seals and perhaps even the occasional whale?

Our review of Fron Fawr Cottages, Pembrokeshire


There are 6 cottages at Fron Fawr each sleeping between 4-8 people. The cottages are traditional Welsh slate and stone barns which have been converted into bright and modern cottages with a contemporary design, equipped with everything you’ll need for a home-from-home feel.

The accommodation is designed with families and pets in mind. All the cottages have their own private and enclosed garden and patio with outdoor furniture, making them perfectly safe for young children and dogs. The cottages are surrounded by 48 acres of fields and woodlands with beautiful views.

The two bedroom cottage, Aneirin, has a spacious downstairs communal area and is in fact bigger than the three bedroom cottages, though they obviously sleep more people and also come with cosy log burners for winter breaks. The largest accommodation can be found in 4-bedroom Glyndrwr or Ty Hen, both of which would be ideal for two families to share. Glyndrwr benefits from a huge garden leading straight to the fields and woodland behind, while Ty Hen is the former farmhouse and now offers spacious and luxury accommodation.

For a family of four the two bedroom cottage costs from £1600/week in the summer peak, while the smaller three bedroom cottage costs around £1200. These prices drop to £500 and £450 respectively for a week out of season.


On-site, Fron Fawr benefits from plenty of outdoor space for the children to run around and explore, including 18 acres of woodland with plenty of trails throughout.  There’s a fantastic children’s play area with swings, sand pit, and ride on toys.  And if that isn’t enough perhaps it’s time to teach the children how to play boules at Fron Fawr’s very own boules court – a great place to gather on a summer evening for a fun filled game for all ages to join in with.  For rainy days Fron Fawr has a convenient DVD and book library.

Fron is the sister resort of award-winning family friendly resort Clydey Cottages, which the Parent Friendly Stays team have previously had the pleasure of visiting (here’s our detailed write-up) – it’s a truly fantastic holiday complex with outstanding facilities for children and parents alike. All guests at Fron Fawr can enjoy the services and facilities at Clydey which is only a short drive away.  At Clydey, kids of all age will be delighted with the indoor heated swimming pool with toys and floats, loungers, a changing table, a play pen and complimentary towels. If you can get to Clydey for 9.30am, the children can join Farmer Malcolm most days in feeding the farm animal and collecting eggs from the chickens. There’s an indoor soft play area for younger children with sofas and complimentary hot drinks for the parents, while older kids will enjoy the games room with table tennis, table football, pool and air hockey. Finally Clydey has a lovely outdoor play area with climbing tower, swings, sandpit, trampoline and wendy house. Clydey has really thought of everything for a family to ensure a relaxing holiday and for those staying at Fron Fawr it’s an obvious place to visit each day!


Fron Fawr is designed with families in mind and to save on packing space there are baby baths, wooden cots, high chairs, sterilisers, baby monitors, stair gates, baby carriers and even potties available should they be needed.

Fron Fawr has a wonderful outdoor hot tub with far-reaching views which mum and dad can enjoy whilst the children make use of the outdoor play area.

Why not take the family to Clydey for a few hours and book the children into the complimentary children’s club where the children are supervised by qualified and friendly staff for a few hours of fun-filled play including arts and crafts, dressing up, storytelling, singing and free play – they won’t want to leave! Parents then can enjoy some child-free time to take a swim at the pool, enjoy the outdoor hot tub, take a leisurely walk around the grounds or perhaps indulge in a beauty/holistic treatment at the onsite spa room!

Fron Fawr has free WiFi and all the cottages are pet friendly.


Fron Fawr is the perfect spot for a family holiday which is friendly to pets as well as the little ones. It has plenty on-site for parents and children, but with the award-winning facilities at Clydey available just down the road, you might find you don’t have much need to explore any further afield!
