• The remainder of the land is rough, left to wildlife. A path winds gently up through it to join the Frenni Fach Common and a network of paths. On the field in front of the cottage new trees are, hopefully, established.

Eco-friendly features:
• No artificial fertilisers, etc have been used on the land
• Mains water, septic tank - eco only cleaning products used
• Fron Haul has undergone restoration (see book in parlour). Only traditional/eco – materials and methods have been used. It has been imperative to retain the history, character and authenticity of this building, but marry then with our modern requirements. I think this has been achieved. I now want others to share the pleasure that our friends and our family have enjoyed at Fron Haul during the 60 years of our ownership.
