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 know 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.

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.There is a word ''prys'' which means copse and prys should be mutated to ''brys''. It is suggested therefore, that Fron Frys started life as Y Fron Brys, meaning '' A copse of trees on the breast of the hill''

Peace and quiet except when sheep shearing etc!!!!!!!!!!
