Llangorse Lake

The largest natural lake in south Wales and very popular with fishermen, bird watchers and water sport enthusiasts. The lake also boasts the only Crannog found in Wales – it now also houses a re-constructed interpretation of a Crannog which was built by Welsh Thatcher Alan Jones. More of Alan’s work can be found on a bird hide on the opposite side of the lake at Ty Mawr.

The lake is a SSSI site and also a Special Area of Conservation. Many bird species can be spotted and there is also a rumour of a lake monster that lives in the depths!

Rowing/fishing boats, kayaks, pedaloes and sailing dingies can be hired from the lakeside carpark and cafe.

The on-site cafe provides hot meals and snacks and in the Village of Llangorse you can find two pubs that also serve food – The Red Lion and The Castle Inn.
