Talybont-On-Usk is an idyllic village about 3-5 miles from the centre of Brecon. This small village lies alongside the Brecon & Monmouthshire canal, there are two pubs situated fairly close to each other, backing onto the canal. These are very popular with walkers & cyclists making an ideal stop-off for lunch. Approximately 4 miles from the main villiage lies the Talybont-On-Usk reservoir (well signposted from the village), the flora & fauna surrounding the waters are beautiful, there is also a small camp site & a bird hide situated on the far end of the lake (turn right as you drive from the village).
