Magnificent and magical , best seen by cycling, allows you to see the whole lake and surrounding waterfalls, or head for the end of the lake and walk to a truly magnificent waterfall .

Hi, I'm so glad you have a great time. Lake Vyrnwy is an awesome place for a good cycle round, but its also as good for a nice relaxing walk as well. I do hope you visit us again soon.

Amazing scenery and space for everyone. Lovely scenic drive (well, motorbike for us) around the lake and then off home via Dinas Mawdri. Not too busy this time of year, although most nearby attractions were open (cafes, canoes,cycles).
