We were met by friends of Riv to the accompaniment of Welsh choirs on the car radio during our Offa's Dyke Walk. Despite not being 100% well that day Riv (and Diana) had afternoon tea and cakes all ready and waiting. What a spectacular location...More
Needing to find a B&B that is dog friendly to enable us too attend a family funeral turned what could have been a sad occasion into a wonderful mini break. Riv was a wonderful host even putting up irioning board to enable me to iron...More
My husband and I stayed for two nights at Fron Frys in May, 2014. The location of this unpretentious bed and breakfast is breathtaking; the atmosphere is convivial and relaxed and Riv (the owner) is charming. We loved having breakfast (very good) in the farmhouse-style...More

A converted farm building in elevated position with views over Ceiriog Valley. Ideal family holiday for visiting Llangollen with its canal and steam railway, 4 National Trust properties with their weekend events and border town of Oswestry and City of Chester. The original farm house known as Fron Frys was demolished 30/40 years ago. In 1988 Jean & Riv Carter purchased the old farm buildings and converted these into a house for their own use. Jean died in 2000 and Riv, a retired bank manager, decided in 2003 operate Fron Frys for "bed and breakfast" purposes. Interpreting the meaning of Welsh place names can be difficult. With regard to Fron Frys, ''fron'' is from "bron" meaning breast referring to the breast of the hill. "Frys" is not so obvious.
