The local area guide to living in Talybont
Talybont, a village in Ceredigion in Wales, is also known as Tal-y-bont and stands on the Afon Leri and Afon Ceulan riversides. The natural beauty of the pretty village doesn’t stop there either, the village is also known as the gateway to the Cambrian Mountains and offers easy access to the sandy beaches of Borth too.
The village, which developed around woollen mills and mining mills, still has many of the old mills remaining, which surround the village. Its industrial past was one of the big driving forces behind Talybont’s growth, seeing the number of houses grow dramatically throughout the 19th century. As many of these buildings are listed, most of them still remain and can be identified by their unique features such as their sash windows.
Amenities here are few and far between, but do include a village shop. Aberystwyth is not too far away though and offers everything else you might need.
