Brought to you by Welsh Water


Llyn Llandegfedd is currently improving its paths and carrying out tree safety work for the benefit of visitors. Although we do our best to carry out the work without disturbing walkers too much, it will be necessary to close and divert paths at times. Sluvad Wood to Pettingale Wood and Cwmbwrwch are currently closed.

We apologise for any inconvenience, but we request that pedestrians follow the signs and keep away from the works for their own safety.


Set in the beautiful, rolling landscape alongside the Usk Valley right on the Monmouthshire/Torfaen border, Llandegfedd Lake is a hub for health, wellbeing and recreation just twenty miles from Cardiff.

The Lakeside Cafe in the visitor centre offers stunning, panoramic views across the water and our modern, purpose-built Watersport Centre offers paddle and sail sports for all ages and abilities plus organised open water swimming. An array of land activities and events are also available.

Llandegfedd Lake is also a great location to fish, walk, picnic and watch wildlife.

A stunning south Wales beauty spot near Pontypool. We are just 20 miles from the Welsh capital of Cardiff and under 10 miles from the city of Newport. With a large 434 acre reservoir, the county boundary between Monmouth and Torfaen runs right through the water. We are easy to get to by car with ample parking on site. Just pop NP4 0TA into your sat nav and once on Sluvad Road ignore instructions to turn right into a narrow lane. Continue straight ahead for 3/4 mile. When you drop down into the valley and see us for the first time, the view will take your breath away.


Visitor Centre

A great place to start your visit. If you park in the top car park, follow the path down and you will see us situated in front of the lake. We are perfectly positioned for you to enjoy the views while you enjoy a bite to eat and drink. Our upstairs Lakeside Café offers a seasonal menu with hot and cold options from light bites to hot meals. On the ground floor you will find our new dog-friendly Grab & Go coffee shop. We love dogs and welcome them to join you here for a cuppa after your stroll. We provide water bowls, doggie treats for good boys and girls and even a selection of dog ice-cream to buy. Pawfect!


Water Adventures

Our dedicated Watersport Centre is located just past the Visitor Centre. Follow the path around the lake and you’ll soon spot our building. We offer the best kit to hire and have a friendly team of qualified instructors. With clean, deep water and no tides our lake is perfect for sailing, kayaking, canoeing and fishing. Enjoy the views on a Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP) or Pedal Board. Our brand new fleet of Stand Up Pedal Boards combine the fun of a SUP, with the comfort of handlebars. Organised open-water swimming sessions are also run on set days throughout the year.
