Llys y Fran Lake has reopened following a £4m refurbishment and now offers visitors a brand-new experience with its new Visitor Centre, cafe, cycle hire, fishing, walking, watersports, adventure playground and climbing wall.

Outdoor activities at Llys-y-Frân Lake includes both water and land-based recreational fun. On the water, visitors can enjoy sailing, kayaking, canoeing, stand up paddle and pedal-boarding. Fishing on the bank or by boat has also made a welcome return.

Land activities include walking and cycling with over 14km of trails to explore and a brand-new Pump Skills Track and a wide range of bikes available to hire. Visitors can also learn the art of axe throwing and have a go at archery. Other activities include Crazy-Bugz, six-wheeled off-road buggies for young adventurers. Plans to develop camping facilities are also underway.

Llys-y-Frân is a very special place in the foothills of the Preseli Mountains. The reservoir was opened in 1972 to supply clean water to Pembrokeshire. The dam is a feat of engineering, but it has also preserved this landscape as a haven for nature and wildlife. The 350 acres of woodland, grassland and lake are perfect for walking, cycling and fishing – and a whole range of activities on land and water. Or you can just enjoy the peace and glorious views. A hub for health, wellbeing and recreation brought to you by Welsh Water.

Relax, refuel and take in the stunning views across the water from our Visitor Centre, complete with café, gift shop and multi-function room which is available for private hire. No visit will be complete without a visit to our café where you can enjoy a warming drink, slice of cake or hot meal from our seasonal menu.
