“What a view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

We felt this was a particularly beautiful lake, viewed from Llanberis. On our visit there was nothing happening on the lake, although the weather was particularly good, and whilst we would not want to see speed boats hastening up and down, canoeing and kayaking would not come amiss. Perhaps this does happen

We spent a lovely couple of hours wandering around the lake, there is so much to see and do on and around the lake we will have to return to do more!

“Easy Access for wild swimming and canoeing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

Llyn Padarn is a beautiful lake beside Mt Snowdon. There is free lakeside parking at the country park from which you can access the lake, swim, canoe or to walk round Llanberis or climb up the mountain. The lake is 2 miles long with well marked paths to explore around it. The slate museum at the end of the lake is interesting and free.

“Lovely views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

We were staying a short walk away, wandered into the lake area and sat and admired the beautiful views, nice little play area for the younger children, just a lovely place to sit and watch world go by.
