Welcome to Llandegfedd Lake

Welcome to Llandegfedd Lake Visitor and Watersport Centre in Monmouthshire south Wales, just 20 miles from Cardiff.

Set in the beautiful, rolling landscape alongside the Usk Valley. Our Visitor Centre has stunning, panoramic views over the water from our Lakeside Café. A truly dog-friendly place to visit. Dogs are welcome in our Grab & Go coffee shop on the ground floor of the Visitor Centre and on the upstairs café balcony.

Just along the path from our Visitor Centre you will find our modern, purpose built Watersport Centre. Here we offer paddle and sail sports for all ages and abilities plus organised Open Water Swimming. With an array of land activities and events on offer, we are also a great place to fish, walk, picnic and watch wildlife.

Open all year round and free to enter, choose your Welsh Water Adventure today.


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.
