Brecon, Brecon Beacons National Park, Wales
The Glass House is located at the edge of Llangorse village in the heart of the Brecon Beacons a few fields away from Llangorse lake. The property has extensive views towards the mountains and is only a few minutes walk from two local pubs. Llangorse is a hub of outdoor activities with watersports on the lake and the nearby rope and climbing centre. There are also many spectacular bike rides and walks available on the door step.

The Glass House is a recently built house of high specification. It combines ecological materials such as sheeps wool insulation, lime plasters and lime based paints. The house has a huge living area, extensive views over farmland and mountains through floor to ceiling windows and either slate or oak floors throughout. It is an ideal base for families or groups of friends.
