Pontganol Cottage is a cosy, two-bedroom, dog-friendly holiday cottage sitting in the stunning scenery of the Llangynidr and Crickhowell area.

Take a stroll

There are walks all around. Discover gentle strolls along the canal finishing at one of the village’s two pubs. Head out on nature-spotting excursions beyond the canal to the river (where you can go wild swimming too).
