Recently refurbished, Fron Cottage is in a secluded location about a mile from Rhayader just off the Aberystwyth Mountain Road. The spacious accommodation sleeps 6 people in three bedrooms with ensuites. There is a large stream side garden and enclosed patio on the site of what was a former carding mill known as Fron Factory or March Melin.

the farm

Doliago is an upland farm 4 miles south of Rhayader and not far from the Elan Valley. We run a flock of native Welsh Mountain sheep and a commercial herd of cattle using modern farm techniques alongside the traditional ways of managing a hill flock that graze on the hills of the Cambrian Mountains. All of our sons have made the decision to carry on in the family business. Tom is also a furniture designer and uses one of the buildings at Doliago to make contemporary commissioned pieces from sustainably sourced British hardwoods. The furniture is designed and made by hand using a combination of traditional and modern techniques.
