| Events in Talybont on Usk | 10 Places to Stay

Talybont-on-Usk is a lovely village in the Usk Valley with waterfalls, a canal and reservoir. To reach it, turn off the A40 between Brecon and Bwlch. This is a wonderful base for walkers and mountain bikers as there is easy access onto the Black Mountains or the Brecon Beacons. The head of the valley above the reservoir is very popular. The Blaen-y-Glyn waterfalls provide spectacular scenery in summer you will often see people sploshing about in the lower pools but do take care it can be treacherous. Talybont forest also lies along the side of Glyn Collwn and the Talybont Reservoir. The old course of the Brynore tramway and Brecon Merthyr railway are now part of the Taff trail which stretches for miles. Accommodation is varied and plentiful here. Many choose to stay at the 4 star bunkhouse with its unique setting above the White Hart Inn, on the edge of the Brecon & Monmouth Canal, with the Taff Trail alongside. This is a place for outdoor enthusiasts who will enjoy walking, fishing or cruising the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, which flows through Talybont but if you must visit a town Brecon, Merthyr and even Cardiff are within easy reach.
