Pontganol Cottage is a boutique, 4 star, self-catering, dog-friendly holiday cottage near Crickhowell within the Brecon Beacons National Park, Wales.

Lovingly renovated to a high standard in 2014, the cottage sits in the stunning scenery of the Llangynidr area. There are walks all around, from gentle strolls along the canal to the village’s pubs, nature-spotting excursions beyond the canal to the river (where wild swimming is permitted on several stretches), to hiking up the mountains and taking in the jaw-dropping views of Llangorse lake and the Brecon Beacons National Park. And if walking seems like too much hard work, then just relax at the cottage instead, designed to make you feel like you’re in a cosy home from home, with everything you need for a relaxing, restful and restorative break.
