Book Tickets Online


Brought to you by Welsh Water, Llyn Brenig is a hub for health and wellbeing. A great place to visit to escape the crowds, enjoy taking deep breaths of fresh Welsh air as you walk, cycle, fish, eat, and admire the views.

We are fortunate to have returning ospreys who nest at Llyn Brenig every year, along with being a haven for wildlife such as pine martens, red squirrels and sand martins.

Caffi Brenig offers a delicious breakfast and lunch menu using locally sourced produce.

Visitors will be impressed with the gift shop and Welsh food & drink produce selection.
