This is located in a wonderful location, amazing views all the windows have uninterrupted views of mountains (snow cap'd during our visit).

We were 3 family's together, not overrun as plenty of space and areas for children to play, adults to read / watch TV. lovely garden, which would be nice in the summer with BBQ area and a hot tub for the parents to relax.

The house was very child friendly coming with a stair gate. The only fault would be the oven takes exceedingly long to cook anything if its quite full. Excellent facilities otherwise, very large fridge/freezer plus extra fridge storage in the main kitchen area, washer and drier and dish washer.

Well worth using as a home base to explore the Brecon area.

Thank you for the great review. It is very much appreciated coming from such great guests. I'm very sorry about the oven. It took a while to figure out what was wrong with two trips from the engineer - essentially the hinges had been bent a little so heat was escaping during cooking. This issue is now fixed and the oven is working on full power once again. Best wishes,
Deri

We have just returned home from a lovely visit to the Brecons. A good holiday location the house was great for my 2 grandsons who just loved the space and the Adults could move around and have their own space. Big thank you for my daughter who organised.

“Awesome location awesome house awesome everything.”
Reviewed 15 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

What a truly fantastic place to stay. My family including three children under five had the most wonderful holiday staying in the Glass House . We were delighted with the accommodation which suited everyone. We had everything we needed plus the best hot tub ever.
We also really appreciated the fresh flowers in the house an added extra!
We would recommend this house to anyone and could not find fault with anything.

“WOW, Spectacular! ”
Reviewed 9 August 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This place is a gem!
My wife and I stayed here with our 2 children (2 and 5 years old) joined buy another couple and their son (12 years old).
Loved everything, the hot tub, the BBQ, spacious garden and the rooms are clean and tidy. The kitchen has the appliances and utensils to cook anything you want. The dining and living areas and spacious.
The cottage is a short walk (along a nature route) away from llangorse lake where they do water sports and activities. The walk isn't push chair friendly we used a kiddie carrier.
You can walk most of the way around the lake but the walk doesn't do a full lap you av to turn around and return the way you came. The fields the walk goes through do contain live stock, but we walked through with our dogs with no problems.
Would definitely recommend and visit again!
