Llyn Brenig Visitor Centre hosts a welcoming cafe with home made cakes and hot food. The Centre also runs a bike hire facility to help visitors explore the extensive track network around the lake. Permits can be bought for fly fishing on the lake, and also to hire fishing boats. The lake is stocked with trout reared on the Llyn Brenig fish farm. Picnic tables and an adventure playground are also available to use. Note that the postcode for the area is large and using a Sat Nav may bring you to the Alwen reservoir, not Llyn Brenig. However, there are frequent brown road signs to help you find Llyn Brenig.

Thank you for your feedback Meryl. The picnic bench was returned to the park shortly after opening and was in place on the date your review was submitted to trip advisor. Rating it as terrible feels a little harsh, given there is no mention in...More

Often pop to the Brenig for a walk. Just under 10 miles all the way around, with only one small steep bit, so easy walking for anyone with basic fitness and comfy shoes. As a treat for Valentine's Day, treated my partner to lunch in...More
