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?
There are five 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.
CHILD FRIENDLY HOLIDAY FEATURES
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.
