FROM THE ESTABLISHMENT
Pontganol is a dog-friendly self-catering holiday cottage in the pretty village of Llangynidr (in the glorious Brecon Beacons National Park). This little cottage is a real home from home. You'll find two bedrooms (one king and one double) upstairs. Also upstairs, the bathroom with its roll-top bath and views of the stars. Downstairs, cooks will love the cream wooden kitchen with dishwasher and a farmhouse-style dining table that seats up to 6. In the living room a woodburner and two squishy sofas keeps things cosy, and there's a snug off the living room with another TV and games console.

About the area
The largest unitary authority in Wales, Powys covers an area of approximately 2,000 square miles. Much of that is mountainous because it actually has the lowest population density of all the Welsh counties.
This much wild, empty space is perhaps best typified by the International Dark Sky Reserve in the Brecon Beacons National Park, one of only eleven in the world. The absence of light pollution creates an exceptional spot for star gazing. You won’t find any cities in Powys, just villages and smaller-sized towns, but that’s the way its inhabitants like it.
Newtown, the largest settlement, is perhaps most famous for being the birthplace of Robert Owen, the founder of the Co-operative movement. Brecon is a market town set on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park, while the pretty Victorian spa town of Llandrindod Wells boasts the National Cycle Collection. Elsewhere, Hay-on-Wye hosts a major literary festival every year.
Powys is liberally scattered with castles, burial mounds, hill forts, and other historic markers; Powis Castle, near Welshpool is probably one of the most impressive. And for walking enthusiasts, it’s not just the Brecon Beacons on offer – the Elan Valley describes itself as the ‘Welsh Lake District’.
