“Overall an excellent place at a reasonable price... would go back again”
Reviewed 10 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We visited as a group of friends - beautiful house, finished to a high standard, comfortable beds, has everything you need.. kitchen well stocked. Hot tub an added bonus. Location is lovely.. quiet and a great base for exploring the Brecon Beacons.
Deri was quick at replying to emails and very helpful.
Make sure you put the postcode into the sat nav and not the top line of the address.. some of our party ended up 10 miles west!

“Amazing, relaxing weekend, can't wait to come back soon”
Reviewed 17 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We have just returned from a relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable weekend at the Glass House, we had a family party of 6 adults and 2 children ages 2 and 6. Everyone loved the hot tub and the peace and quiet of the countryside. We were given the opportunity of having a tour of the farm by Deri and we could not have asked for a better guide who went above and beyond. Felt very welcome, the kids loved riding on the tractor/trailer and seeing the cows and sheep especially the farms sheepdogs. Was a perfect way to celebrate my Dad's 60th, we were pleasantly surprised the bbq was gas and we had a bbq both nights, which cooked to perfection. Bathrooms were spotless and the beds were the most comfortable beds we have ever slept in. The sound system in the seated area was fantastic, dining area comfortably seated all of us with the food served at the table also. The tv signal wasn't great but then who goes away for the weekend in a rural area and expects to stay in watching tv. Was very handy having the washing machine and tumble dryer too. We look forward to returning soon and have already recommended to family and friends.

“Lovely place to stay”
Reviewed 15 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

No complaints. Only downside was the spiders, and the flies which feed them but as it was attached to a farm the latter was not a surprise.

“Great esp for adults: hot tub, animals&mountain views, good village location”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

7 adults had a fab stay.

A great house which we'd love to visit again. Good points:
- huge house with TV room, dining area & lounge so people can have their own space
- sheep & cows in the field next to the garden with views from the dining area & to the mountain
- hot tub in private walled area of garden
- great location on edge of small village with 10 mins walk to the lake & 2 mins walk to 2 good pubs

Points to bear in mind:
- as another review has pointed out, there is a water feature/pond in the garden that is unguarded
- the bedrooms have blinds & some windows without blinds so if light wakes you early in the morning, bring an eye mask
- some reviews have said the house gets hot but the owner provided various fans so it wasn't a problem for us
- another review said the wifi didn't work v well but it was fine for us bearing in mind it won't be as fast as in a city
- mobile signal in the house is v patchy
- a lot of cobwebs due to the v high ceilings but we didn't mind

“Perfect.”
Reviewed 30 July 2014 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed here July last year 2013. The Barn is simply stunning I have to say, I would return here for another holiday! Llangorse Lake is a short walk away and well worth a visit. Very quiet area. You would need to travel into Brecon for shops etc. The gardens are beautiful and the owners were quick to put up a fence so the dog could enjoy the holiday as much as us! otherwise the garden wouldn't be secure. I think the added fence made things a whole lot better and private! The gardens are beautiful and lovely views from the back with a beautiful fruit tree/herb front garden which you are welcome to use, the hot tub a fun and welcome bonus which was well used! Set on a farm but no concerns, except for one run in with the sheep dog and our dog! The sheep in the field directly next to the back garden were very friendly! We found it clean, well equipped, friendly owners and had a reasonable last minute booking discount as well!
