The Glebe occupies level ground near the centre of a larger woodland in the pastoral heart of rural Powys. It is surrounded by trees or wood-pasture to all sides. The wider landscape is of rolling grassland punctuated with hedges and woodland, framed by the moors of the Eppynt Hills to the south. The market town of Builth Wells is four miles to the east, and Llandovery is about ½ an hour to the southwest.
The Glebe has a scattered over-storey of full-canopied trees including oak, Douglas fir, Norway spruce and ash. The wide spacing of these trees admits plenty of light to the woodland floor which supports young birch and some vigorous hazel. A belt of pole-stage Douglas fir screens part of the east side of the wood. Occasional willow and rowan complete the woodland mix.
The wood is served by a well-found stoned track which leads from the public road to a private parking area within the wood, enabling year-round car access. Beyond this there is a soft ride which extends into the middle of the property.
The Glebe is a charming property in a charming location. Many years of quiet sylvan enjoyment await!
If It Were Mine
A gentle respacing and brashing of the Douglas fir would improve their form. I might also clear some small areas for patch-planting a wider range of native species.

Directions & Access
- Head west from Builth Wells on the A483.
- On leaving the town travel exactly 3.9 miles then turn left onto a private road and immediately over a humped railway bridge (A on the plan).
- This turning off the main road is opposite a small chapel next to Llanfechan Farm (and about ½ mile after a bus garage on your right).
- Once over the bridge turn immediately right and follow the stone track for just over 1 km passing through three field gateways in a wide sweep to the woodland gate at B.
- Please park just outside this gate keeping all tracks clear.
- Climb the forest gate (B) (sorry, we do not give out keys for viewings) and continue up the main access track, then turn first left after about 150 metres (C).
- After 20 metres turn right at the end of the hard track. You are now at point D and The Glebe is straight ahead of you.
- PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOU LEAVE ALL FARM GATES ON THE ACCESS ROUTE EXACTLY AS YOU FOUND THEM.
- The southwest boundary (CDE) is the northeast side of the track marked by yellow-topped posts.
- The northwest boundary (EF) is a stock fence.
- The north boundary (FG) is marked by red-topped posts.
