A great place with activities for all ages. We aren't fishing folk but it looks like it has everything for the angler with a well stocked anglers shop. We were just happy to walk around the reservoir and take part in the Easter Egg hunt

After circumnavigating the nearby Alwen Reservoir Trail, this place served as a welcome stop off for a much needed comfort break (💦) and brew ☕️. £2 to park the 🚙 wasn’t too much to ask. Great views ⛰ Stunning scenery.

We decided on a walk around the lake with the dogs as we haven't been around Brenig before (only Alwen). I was expecting the walking route to be more natural than it was, and after some time the hard ground was making my knees ache....More

This is a lovely place for a walk, with beautiful views from pretty much every angle. Walking across the dam was very pleasant, although it was a slight obstacle course given the amount of animal poo (not helped by our dog trying to roll in...More
