The bustling village of Talybont on Usk is just ten minutes walk from Gilestone along the canal towpath. The village has three pubs, a country restaurant, café, post office, playground, shop and crafts gallery.
The closest pub is The Usk Inn – turn right at the end of the private driveway from Gilestone and it’s just on your left http://www.uskinn.co.uk/
Talybont is a hub for walkers and cyclists with the Taff Trail and Mon/Brecon canal passing right through it. There are several graded mountain bike trails which start from the village.
This is a great place as a base for your holiday : as active as you want | as peaceful as you need.
