Parc Clychau'r Gog
This beautifully landscaped lake, fed by a mountain stream and springs, offers fifteen sheltered fishing platforms, all constructed from locally felled oak. There is easy access from the car-park, which is adjacent to the main mid-Wales coastal road, the A458. Four of these platforms have been sited to give easy access, making them especially suitable for the disabled. The lake is well stocked with a wide variety of coarse fish, including carp, tench and roach, making it ideal for a relaxing day's fishing, or more serious competitions.
A reception area with tea and coffee making facilities and light refreshments, toilets and a picnic area are situated right beside the water, and adjacent to this are 2.6 hectares of ancient semi-natural woodland, characterised by the presence of upland oak, and rich with wild flowers.Visit in the spring and you will witness an astonishing carpet of bluebells!
While members of your party are enjoying the fishing, you can visit the farm paddock to see or feed some of the animals, or explore specially constructed footpaths, taking in outstanding views from the mountain top. There is a choice of routes, so you can either enjoy just a short stroll, or explore further, passing through the adjacent Forestry Commission woodland.
