Details

Llandegfedd Lake is just 20 miles from the Welsh capital and spans the beautiful, rolling landscaped countryside of Monmouthshire and Torfaen.

This stunning visitor attraction is owned and cared for by Welsh Water for your enjoyment. With over 400 acres of water, woodlands & grasslands to explore, you can experience every type of benefit that being close to water has to offer.

The Watersports Centre offers sailing experiences for adults, children and organised groups. Land and water based activities on offer include windsurfing, sailing, stand-up paddleboarding, canoeing, kayaking and raft building – all with equipment hire (March to October).

With over 6 miles of footpaths and way-marked walks for you to explore there is something for everyone from a gentle stroll through the fields to a hike around the lake and surrounding area.

The waterside restaurant, with unrivalled panoramic views of the lake, offers a variety of freshly prepared food including hearty breakfasts, daily specials and popular favourites. All tastes are catered for with vegan and gluten free options. If you fancy a treat why not book in advance for a leisurely Afternoon Tea?

A truly dog-friendly attraction where four legged friends are most welcome to enjoy a good walk before taking a ‘paws’ on the restaurant balcony or in the downstairs café.

The lake is well known for bank and boat fishing for rainbow and brown trout and is a popular venue for angling competitions. Also well known for its large pike Llandegfedd holds the UK Pike record of 46lb 13oz (that’s a whopper!).

Designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest due to its richness in wildlife and large numbers of over-wintering wildfowl. Llandegfedd is one of the major sites for birds in Wales with over 240 species recorded. Gulls, breeding birds and passage migrants can be seen during spring and autumn.

So climb on board, cast a line, take a walk or sip your cuppa and enjoy the views; just make sure you #VisitLlandgefedd
