Overview
More
Our visitors' centre and well-stocked shop are the ideal places to start your visit. Join a trail through the woodland and birds are soon all around you. You can see and hear pied flycatchers and redstarts, while dippers nest by the lake, and above you ravens, buzzards and peregrines soar in the skies. There's plenty for children including nestbox and animal trails, and a wild playground.

It should be about 30 miles to the west, next to the body of Water conveniently labelled "Lake Vyrnwy!" It is however a superb nature reserve, with fantastic walks, a wonderful sculpture trail, a brilliant information/education centre and a lovely food/snack cafe.

Great day out, walking or cycling around the lake, exploring the dam and taking in the bird life. Can get very busy with cyclists, some of whom are head down very aggressive towards the more leisure cyclist.

We parked up and was pleasantly surprised it was free parking, the viewing station for the birds is fantastic and a great way to see so many different birds. The teashop is well maintained, warm and friendly, good value for money.

Well worth a day out to come here, enjoy the views, lakes and woodland. We stopped at a car park and walked up to a waterfall. Take a picnic and enjoy the scenery.
