“Great accommodation at a great price, would definitely visit again.”
Reviewed 11 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We booked this cottage to stay for New Year and was delighted with what we found. The house is spacious and well kept and the best part is each bedroom has it's own bathroom.
The kitchen is large and there is more then enough seating to fit up to 8 people which is what the cottage caters for. The hot tub is clean and large and we loved the fact there were two living areas, it meant as a large group we could still have our own space.
We did have some trouble regulating the heat and I can imagine the house would get very hot during the summer months as there's a lot of glass. The only other issues was that the TV did not work and the wifi is very weak, I know people have made comments that you don't go to such a beautiful and remote place to use these features however I believe that if you advertise a holiday home as having these features then they should work as it allows for a higher change.

Thank you for staying and thanks for the great review. We also really appreciate the feedback on things we can improve. To address your points:
1) Heating - there have been some changes to the heating system (to make the ground source heating more efficient and to bring the temperature in the AV room into line with other living areas) which meant that the underfloor heating is running hotter than it was prior to the changes at the start of December. I had been gradually turning the heating down but with the underfloor there is a delayed reaction so I did not want to overshoot and make the house too cold for your stay. I did install digital thermometers throughout the house prior to Christmas to assist in working this out and the house was around 22 degrees in the living areas and 21 degrees in the bedrooms prior to your arrival. Sorry if this caused any discomfort and I am working on rectifying.
2) TV: not sure what happened there. It was working prior to your arrival. The system is two years old and we had the satellite engineer to check over the signal at the start of December. If you give us a shout we can usually get any issues rectified straight away and would have done on this occasion had we known there was a problem.
3) Wifi: I don't have an issue using it with my iPhone or iPad and the speed test consistently gets around 5.6 MB/S however we've had a couple of reports of issues recently so I'll upgrade the router which will hopefully fix the problem. BT are also in process of upgrading the network in the area to fibre optic and we should have BT Infinity installed during 2015. Thank you for letting me know.

Best wishes,
Deri

When arriving at the glass house we were amazed at the standard! The house has all supplies you would need and more, the hot tub was an added bonus for us! The beds were very comfy, the house was clean and we were left to do our own thing. Great value for money and we would love to go again!

“Amazing!!”
Reviewed 18 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We came to Wales to do some hiking in Brecons Beacon and the Glass House was in a perfect location for that. The house is so beautiful and very well decorated. The kitchen has everything you need to make meals there, which is what we did both nights and then ate and played games at the large dining table. In the mornings you wake up to a lovely view of fields with grazing sheep and mountains in the background. The beds were the most comfortable I had slept in during our whole trip through Europe! The hot tub was an added bonus, too. The owner is very nice and accommodating; he provided us with a list of attractions in the area as well as suggestions of where to eat. Next time we visit Wales I will definitely be booking this house again...staying longer!

“Overall an excellent place at a reasonable price... would go back again”
Reviewed 9 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.
