Lovely location for canal walks with your dog, and drives to the Brecons. Warm and clean. Only downside was lack of equipment which can easily be fixed. Small things like a tea towel and washing up liquid, kitchen roll and tea bags! Overall good value for money. Just hope the owners take note of suggestions.

Canalside Cottage is brilliant. You cannot fault the comfort, spaciousness and cleanliness of the cottage itself. The location is tranquil. A couple of minutes walk to the beautiful surroundings of the canal towpath. To add perfection the dogs can go too. I would certainly recommend this cottage.

Had a fantastic stay at Canal side cottage. The cottage is lovely, very comfortable (beds are really comfy!) and has everything you need for being self-sufficient. Its situated in a great location, right along-side the canal which was ideal for us with our young dog could easily take him out for a lovely walk. Located just on the edge of the BreconRead more Beacons so just a short car journey would lead to some fantastic walks and views. Hide

If you want a relaxing place to stay where you can walk, cycle or just chill and listen to the birds next to a stunning canal in beautiful scenery with some really good pubs nearby then this is it. Honestly look no further.

Lovely cosy barn conversation. Beautifully set up with everything you could need. Enclosed garden, ideal for dogs. The canal is about 50 yards from the front door, so tow path walks in either direction are easy. There is a lovely little wood in one direction and the warfe in the other with a very friendly cafe, with beautiful cakes and delightful sRead moreervice. The pub is a bit of a walk, but excellent food and welcomes dogs. Martin the cottage owner was extremely helpful. Hide

We had a very comfortable and relaxing 4-day stay in Canalside Cottage. Everything as described, the shower was fantastic. Loads of space for family of 4 (2 under-10s). Recommend the friendly curry house/chip shop in Penperlleni and peaceful walks by the canal, so close by! Thank you to our wonderful, kind hosts. We hope to return soon.

The property is Pontypool and not Brecon Beacons as you would know it which is about 1 hours drive. However the location is amazing for access to both Cardiff (30 mins) and Abergavenny (15 mins) with the Brecon and Monmouthshire Canal Path within a few steps. The cabin is perfect, cosy and clean.
