Details

The Cors y Llyn Reserve is one of several mires in the old county of Radnorshire and is located to the south of Newbridge-on-Wye. This fascinating area consists of two basins with quite different biological qualities separated by a drier ridge of peat. These hollows were carved out of the bedrock by glacial action, and the basins are largely surrounded by wet woodland with fields of grassland beyond. Cors y Llyn also boasts a small and colourful herb-rich meadow as well as an expanse of open water with emergent vegetation.

From the car park, a fully accessible linear route on grass mesh and board-walk runs for 500 metres, through gates, fields and parts of the mire - finishing at some seating. This route takes in the herb-rich meadow and an extensive area of open water before reaching the mire entrance gate. There is open access within the meadow; however within the mire enclosure itself, keep to the board-walk to avoid sinking in the very deep soft ground and keep dogs on leads at all times.

After 1.5 miles, cross over the Irfon river and after another 0.5 mile, turn right - a small, unsigned lane. Follow this lane through a farmyard to reach the car park for the Reserve.
