Penybontfawr is a small village in Montgomeryshire, on the River Tanat, where the B4391 following down the Tanat Valley is met by the B4396 coming down Cwm Hirnant.

The local pub is the Railway Inn, although there is no railway here. It was formerly though on the Tanat Valley Light Railway, and the village grew up in the nineteenth century as a result of the transport links - the railway and the junction of valley roads.
