Beautiful meander around the reservoir, finally stopping at the dam to take in the views. Highly enjoyable, recommended trip for those who like a peaceful stop and start journey.

We love this place! So beautiful in the summer ( when we went). I hope to return this summer. We managed to find a lovely quiet spot onto the water and had a lovely home made picnic in the sun.

Wild, Beautiful, Quiet. Amazing views. This was a highlight of our trip to Mid Wales, you truly feel as if you are the only people on earth; this area is so unspoilt.

We called in briefly while passing through the area on a freezing cold afternoon and I wouldn't have missed it for the world. The views are simply stunning, and the spillway was in full flood as water levels were high. We only stayed ten minutes...More

Found this by chance . Turned out to be the largest clay dam in the world according to Wikipedia. . The lake was stunning. And seemed endless. Even bigger than the Ellan Valley reservoirs.
