  • "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.

  • "Fabulous holiday home which is perfect for a large party of family or friends in a lovely quiet location."

    It has everything you need to make your holiday special. The beds are amazingly comfortable! It is an ideal base for walks and a family fun adventure day at Zip-world. We have no hesitation in recommending this value for money holiday home.

  • "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.

  • "Fron Goch is a fantastic house in a lovely isolated location."

    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 was spacious yet cosy, well laid out, clean and the kitchen was well equipped with all the utensils we could think of."

    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!

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our time at From Goch Farm."

    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.

  • "Great property which was very well equipped with everything you need."

    Would definitely recommend and return if visiting N wales again. The only one minor downside is it isn’t walkable to the local pub due to dangerous road with no footpath. A minor point but may be useful info.

  • "There were a few things that were broken like the dishwasher and the kitchen sink tap."

    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

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.

Once an old farmhouse, this contemporary property is comprised of an annex and the main house, which is set over two floors and together can sleep up to sixteen guests, Fron Goch Farm is the perfect location to escape to the country in complete style, with easy access to Conwy and Surf Snowdonia.

Arriving at the property you will find ample parking for you and your party, before entering the property to begin your North Wales Adventure.

Be welcomed into the large timber frame oak living/dining room, with impressive original beams and oak flooring, you can look forward to cosying up after a long day of exploring the countryside with your favourite film, revelling in the warmth of the woodburning stove, with the floor-to-ceiling windows offering expansive views of the valley.

The designated chef will enjoy using local produce to create delicious meals for the group in the fully-equipped kitchen with electric stove and AGA, which can then be enjoyed around the generous dining room table as you discuss plans for the days ahead.

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.

Settle down in front of the woodburning stove with a glass of wine in the second sitting room, where you can put your feet up and relax on the corner suite to enjoy a family film night.

Also, on the ground floor is the cloakroom with basin and WC, eliminating any queues for the bathroom!

When night falls, the property ensures a flexible sleeping arrangement for all parties with six spacious king-size and twin bedrooms to choose from in the main house, one of which is located on the ground floor, ideal for those who have mobility issues.

Take advantage of the contemporary bathroom where you can enjoy a relaxing soak before settling down for the evening or opt for a shower in the shower room for a quick freshen up.

Outside, you will find an additional king-size and twin bedroom in the delightful annex, as well as a wet room shower, where you can get ready for the day in style.

Take the short drive to the market town of Abergele, which is home to a good selection of independent shops, pubs and eateries, as well as its own beach and the famous Gwrych Castle.

Grab your walking boots and venture up to the castle, which has increased in popularity since its appearance on the ITV show, I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!

This small Welsh village is situated on the River Elwy, some five miles from the beautiful North Wales coastline and playing host to a few handy amenities, including a Post Office and two pubs.

Choose to ride the coastal cycle path, which runs along the Abergele seafront, while the Offa's Dyke pathway, the Clwydian Hill Range and Betws-y-Coed are all close by. The Victorian town of Llandudno makes a superb day out, with its two waterfronts, abundant shops, pubs and restaurants, and its two headlands, the Great Orme and the Little Orme. Stroll along the golden sand at the North Shore, or find the quieter West Shore more to your liking, with its sublime views towards Anglesey.
