Fantastic for walks, quiet beach, the waterfalls and take your dog, very friendly with pets. The food was good at Tynycornel Hotel & Railway Inn was excellent for pub food.

Stunning lake with panoramic views of the mountain in the background, the lake was formed from the glacial movements when the mountains were formed

Plenty of parking at the Eastern and an easy walk around the lake. A pub and hotel are at the opposite end of the lake for refreshments. Good "photography" country

A large body of water, but somehow intimate set in the deep valley of Snowdonian mountains. For those resting from a day climbing mountains or not wishing to, this lake provides a wonderful lakeside walk with plenty of flora fauna to enjoy. The best way...More

We were lucky enough to have a very still day on one of the days we were there, allowing for perfect reflections of the sky and mountains in the lake - fabulous!
