Journey to North Wales

By Car

It’s easy to reach us by car, we are just 20 mins from Denbigh. If using a sat nav head for LL21 9TT and follow the brown signs when you are near. Pay and display parking is available and costs just £2.50 for a full day. This charge goes towards the maintenance of the site and allows us to keep it open for visitors, we thank you for your support. Disabled parking bays can be found in the main car park and close to the shore for anglers. There is level access to the Visitor Centre, Café & Toilets.

The Cambrian Way

A roadtrip along The Cambrian Way is a popular choice for travellers. It’s a complete north-south journey along the mountainous spine of Wales, running for 185 miles (300km) from coast to coast. Following the A470 from Cardiff, there’s a list of unmissable experiences along the route through the heart of Wales and on to Llyn Brenig. It can take 4 hours by car from south Wales but the best way to experience it is to stop and enjoy the sights along the way.

International and Business Visitors

North Wales is easy to get to with fantastic links from the two main north west airports, Liverpool and Manchester. There are also direct train routes from many of the UK’s biggest cities. North Wales is closer than you might think! You will need to reach us by car or an organised coach trip but then part of our charm and beauty is that we are a bit off the beaten track.

By Bike

Once you reach us, a popular way to explore the sights and sounds of Llyn Brenig is on two wheels. While you are here you can hire a bike, ebike or trailer from the cycle hub or you can of course bring your own ride.
