Llangorse lake is the largest natural expanse of open water in South Wales. It has a car park at the side and is set in a bowl surrounded by mountains. Visit the Welsh Crannog Centre, which is built on the water as part of the town’s defenses. The Crannog is the only one of its kind in Wales and is believed to be inhabited by the royal family of Brycheiniog in the 10th Century.
Why not take the ‘lake trail’ around the western edge of the lake to Llangasty Church, or visit the flower meadows or take in some of the wildife from the vantage point of the Llangasty bird hole.
