Notice: Path Closures

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.

Llandegfedd Lake Walking Routes

Lovely place, great views and walks. Not far from Pontypool in car 5-10 minutes. Staff were friendly…Nice place to walk and get fresh air with different trails you can take.

Google Review

Get closer to nature by exploring one of our footpaths and way-marked walks, ideal for kids to play in, climb through and explore.

Choose your own path from a gentle stroll through the fields to a brisk 6 mile hike around the lake and surrounding area. This year we have opened up new pathways making them more accessible, enjoyable and picturesque. We are designated a Site of Special Scientific (SSSI) for our importance to over-wintering wildfowl.

To protect wintering birds the Lakeside Trail and Up North and Back Trail are closed annually from 1st October to 1st March.

Coed y Pean Trail and Pike Trail are open all year round. Why not pre-order a picnic from our café to take with you on your walk?

Visitors should wear appropriate footwear when walking our trails.

Dog Walking

We are a dog-friendly place to visit and they will love exploring as much as you. But in the interest of other visitors, nesting birds and livestock please always keep them on a short lead and out of the water.

Please also pick up any dog waste and dispose of it responsibly. The lake is a precious water supply so need your help to keep it unpolluted. Only leave paw prints and your thanks!
