About the neighborhood
Talybont (otherwise Tal-y-Bont) is a village north of the town of Barmouth in mid Wales. Talybont benefits from a railway station on the Cambrian Line and has many caravan sites, a hair dresser, a pub called the 'Ysgethin Inn' and a restaurant. It is also home to the annual Dyffryn and Talybont Fun day,[1] held on the last Sunday in July.
Getting around
The Snowdonia National Park is ideally situated for whatever type of holiday you are looking for. Whatever you are into: fishing, surfing, kite boarding, sailing, mountain biking, bird watching, painting, landscape photography or horse riding, there are endless scenic places to explore. This region of Wales is without doubt a 'hidden gem' with some of the most spectacular scenery in Britain. This is a walker's paradise with Cader Idris just a few minutes drive away! Snowdon is only 60 minutes by car and the beautiful Coed Y Brenin Wood, with miles of mountain bike & walking tracks is just 30 minutes drive.
