Beautiful, light and spacious house, perfect for sharing with family & friends. The two separate sitting rooms are ideal if one part of the group needs a bit of space and peace, or children want to watch a film. We loved the sheep and ducks!...More

About the neighbourhood
Llangorse is a short drive from Brecon, Crickhowell and Hay-On-Wye making it an excellent base to explore the Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains. However, Llangorse is in its own right a great place to visit with watersports on the lake, the largest natural lake in South Wales; a near-by rope, activites and riding centre; two village pubs (four in the summer) and some great walks and cycle rides.
Getting around
You can get to the Glass House either by car or a Taxi from one of the local railways stations. Abergavenny station is 16 miles; Hereford 25 miles. There are a number of bike rental companies.
