The cottage is just few hundred meters from a great pub, The Dragon's Head, in the small village of Llangenny.
Talybont Lodge is perfect for walkers and cyclists. There is secure bike storage and great walking and cycling routes from the door - the owner lives next door and is happy to help with route planning if she's around.
