Llangenny is situated in Powys, Mid Wales. It sits in the shadow of the Sugarloaf Mountain, 1.5 miles from Crickhowell and 4 miles from Abergavenny. The hamlet of Llangenny lies in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park, South Wales.
Being a small village with a population of just 100, Llangenny offers visitors two choices, the Pub …or the Church. The church of St Cennau is situated on the bank of the Grwyne Fawr River which runs through Llangenny. Believed to have been built around the late 15th century/early 16th century, the church has splendid, tall windows and a peaceful, elegant interior. However, these windows are not believed to be original, having been added to the building during the restoration in the nineteenth century, along with the building of a new bellcote.
The Dragon's Head Public House is a traditional pub that serves both food and real ale.
Horse riding can be taken up close to Llangenny, with many of the trails leading through the Sugarloaf and Henbant mountains and offering picturesque views of the Brecon Beacons National Park.
If hill walking is your thing then there is plenty of choice with trails to the Sugar Loaf Mountain (596m) and the Table Mountain (451m) above Crickhowell.
In Crickhowell visitors can find many small shops selling everything from bread to postcards, as well as the 12th century castle. Just south of Llangenny is the Big Pit Museum, a huge hit with children, giving them a once in a lifetime experience of just how conditions were down in the depths of a coal mine. For accommodation, why not try staying in one of the cosy self-catering cottages in Llangenny or Crickhowell
