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.

After a long, hilly ride in strong winds we were disappointed to find the cafe had closed at 4pm. Incredibly, the very kind staff in the shop took pity on us and made us a cup of coffee FOC, what more could you ask for....More

Lake Brenig is a wonderful attraction for kids. Walk around the lake or just let them wet their feet and throw stones. We went there after noon and it was a great way to end the day.

Llyn Brenig is a fantastic attraction , plenty of water related activities set in glorious scenery. The thing that let our day down was the food in the visitor center. Steak and ale pies were so well done they were stuck in the foil wrappers....More

We went on a hot day and walked all the way round - over 10 miles on hard surfaces. Also the eastern part of the walk does not go close to the lake (unless you go back on yourself) which is bad design. Best to...More
