  • "The property was as described and in a lovely location."

    It suited our needs as a large group. I would recommend and certainly visit again.

  • "My extended family and i had a lovely stay at Fron Goch Farm."

    It was situated central to most of the places we wanted to visit in the week we were here.We stayed here in a week that was very hot and was very grateful for the big fan in the kitchen area which we moved to different rooms where it was need, i think a couple more would be appreciated. There was a few issues we had, this property was listed as having a ground floor bedroom which was one of the reasons we booked, we had two people with disabilities who cannot manage stairs so this was ideal, but the toilet on the ground floor was so low it was a struggle for them to use having both got bad knees, this was a big issue, even the younger generation found it difficult it was ok for my 4yr old grandson.The cleanliness of the place was a-bit disappointing lots of cob webs and dead spiders my husband had to go around with the hoover (which was full )when we got there, we can appreciate flies and spiders being in the country but these had been there sometime.The kitchen drawers inside were filthy, long hair on some of the floor mats in the bathrooms, the annex is a lovely addition for our other disabled person but the shower floor was orange around the edges so needed a good clean and the toilet brush needs changing and bin replaced as broken. The chairs in the kitchen need some pads on the feet because when you have a large party of people the scrapping noise was so loud and grating. The other major thing we found a problem for us is there is no security when it comes to our dogs, we couldn't just open the doors and let them out someone always had to be there because there was no safe place for them to be, we had to fence off one end with garden furniture and put them on leads, and on hot days like we had we couldn't have the doors open all the time without putting some sort of barricade to stop them going out, this wasn't very relaxing so some sort of gates would be ideal.also very short on hanging space in rooms. But on a good note sorry for the ramble we had a lovely stay and would definitely come back again if issues were dealt with.

    Thank you very much for the feedback. We have passed the cleaning and maintenance issues onto our cleaning manager so rest assured these issues will be dealt with in the future. Thanks for the advice about the toilet. We have booked out the week of the17th September for maintenance when we will replace it. Regarding the dogs, I have now constructed some portable fencing which can be used to make an enclosure in the garden. Hopefully that will address that issue for you. Again, apologies for the issues you faced and we look forward to welcoming you again in the near future! Property Owner

  • "The property was a lovely size and generally finished to a good standard."

    It was ideal for a break with extended family. There were some small things which would have made a big difference; there were no weighing scales in the kitchen, no shaver sockets anywhere and a first aid kit in the kitchen drawer which was far from complete. The property was listed as child friendly however the outside was certainly not as there was a retaining wall to the rear of the property with no fencing to prevent young children from falling down it. There was also a significant gap at the end of the crib wall adjacent the patio which was also dangerous, and which we had to barricade with outdoor furniture. The standard of cleanliness was quite poor with numerous dirty tissues down the side of the furniture in the main room and there was old coffee left in the coffee machine which led us not to use it and instead use the cafetière which was a shame as we bought coffee especially. On the plus side it was lovely to feel relaxed in the property and being provided with throws for the furniture for use to allow dogs on the furniture. We would definitely come back but it would be a lot better with some more secure fencing for kids and dogs.

    Thank you very much for your feedback. It's really appreciated and will help us to improve the house for other guests. This week, we fenced off the gap in the crib wall - I think the rose had died back quite significantly this year which had widened the gap but this is now safe. We have contacted the head of our cleaning team, and she has updated our cleaning checklist to specifically include the points you had mentioned. We have purchased mechanical scales so they will be available to use on your next visit. There is a shaver socket in the downstairs mirror, but we realised that this is almost impossible to find if you don't already know - we've added it to the guestbook to help future guests. We also plan to add them to the other bathrooms soon. Again, thank you for your feedback and we look forward to welcoming you again in the future Property Owner

  • "The house worked out brilliantly for our large family."

    We all thought a guest book would be a good idea. This would give places to visit and places to eat, that have been recommended by guest. There is not enough hanging space. And pegs. A ceiling line or another indoor hanging rail. The dryer part of the washer doesn’t dry at all? Therefore we had trouble getting children’s things dry. The owner was very helpful when we had a problem .

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Fron Goch Farm."

    The house is absolutely beautiful, it all seemed to be quite new and the decor was lovely, comfy mattresses too. The house was very well equipped, they even had little dog treats. The views from the house are stunning. Spoke to the owners over the phone a couple of times during our stay, they were very friendly and helpful and dealt with our queries straight away. Their guest book has lots of helpful information and they left a guide of their favourite walks which was a nice, personal touch. Theres a little village about 3 mins drive away that has a couple of pubs, cafe and a shop for essentials but for a bigger shop there are supermarkets that deliver to the house or a 10/15 minute drive away. We only got back home yesterday and I'm missing the house already. It really felt like our home for the week. The owners seem to have lots planned for the house in the future which will make it even better. We will definitely be returning. Thank you so much James and Sarah

  • "We all loved our stay at fron goch."

    The house was spacious, the kitchen was large with enough space to prep meals for 16 easily. We even used the arger to cook our roast chicken as the ovens were full with everything else. The bedrooms were all very nice, the bathrooms were modern and tidy. The downstairs loo has an incredible sink. Very unique. We didn't get much chance to use the outdoor spaces, due to it being February, however the large room off the kitchen would always warm with the sun, giving a natural place for us to all congregate. The utility having underfloor heating was a nice bonus, allowed us to wash and dry clothes easily. Finally the "hidden" snug/living room was one of my favourites, out of the way of normal foot traffic, means you're very unlikely to be bothered, and the sofas were lush! I'd love one myself. The owners were very accommodating and responded quickly to any queries we had.

  • "The house & annex were really lovely & very spacious we loved it & will definitely go back again in the future."

    Beautifully decorated. Owners we didn’t meet but left us a lovely note & emailed us with numbers if anything was needed or if any problems arose. The only thing was that the sofas in the dining room area were very uncomfortable but the other sitting room was beautiful & extremely comfy. Needed wardrobe or hanging. The beds were really comfy so much so that we have ordered the same make once we arrived home. I would recommend this holiday stay to everyone as it is fabulous & thanks again Sykes. We have already got other friends looking at hiring fron goch farm house for next year.

    Easy to find, and ample parking. The fixtures and fittings are of a very high standard, we especially loved the log burners for the cool Autumn evenings.

  • "Could not fault this property in any way."

    Owners were very friendly and extremely helpful. Cleanliness was flawless and to an exceptional standard. We were from a care home for adults with learning disabilities, and the disabled access was exceptional which we have struggled with in other properties, flat surfaces throughout the house and patio area was ideal for those with mobility issues. Annex was also exceptional and brand new. Local town was lovely and only a short drive, whilst being amongst the scenery with beautiful views. Fire pit at night was a great amenity which we enjoyed sitting around late at night. Kitchen had extensive variety of cooking equipment which was really useful when in a large group, and dishwasher also great luxury. A stress free stay that was faultless, would definitely recommend and 100% will be returning.

    The property is very child friendly, with options of a high chair and travel cot on request. The owners made us feel welcome, yet gave us privacy and were happy for us to contact them if needed help. The property is in a great location, with amazing views and felt like a true home-from-home. Would recommend this property to any family or large group!

    I understand that being on a farm their will be insects, the amount of moths and flies were quite a bit the children constantly looked out for this. The lights outside did not all work and walking to the annex in the dark was at times scary and difficult. Other than that it was a great location and the home accommodated us well

    Accommodation was very comfortable and provided lots of living space for our 3 families. Location was great. The beach was a short drive for our morning dog walk. Lots of interesting things to do and see within the vicinity. James, the owner, was very responsive and suggested many great walks in the area. The outdoor space was a big bonus and provided a stimulating and safe environment for both the kids and the dogs. Definitely hope to return.

The property

Set in the peaceful Welsh village of Llanfair Talhaiarn, near to the small market town of Abergele, is this remarkable rural holiday home, Fron Goch Farm.

You will also benefit from the handy utility room which houses a large wine fridge and washing machine, ideal for putting muddy clothes on a spin after a walk.

Moving through the property, you will find a second woodburning stove in the hallway which can be lit to add further warmth on colder evenings, as well as a host of traditional features including traditional oak farmhouse doors with latches throughout the house.
