There was not always a lake here! When the Victorians first flooded the Llanwddyn Valley to create Lake Vyrnwy, in 1899, they stocked the lake with 40,000 Loch Leven trout, making it the largest wild trout fishery in England and Wales. Today, guests can enjoy exclusive fishing on this 11,000 acre lake, at one of the finest still water fisheries in the UK. Loch-style fishing is limited to just 10 boats, preserving the tranquil nature of the sport and providing you with a real chance to catch a fish up to 9lbs.
Lake Vyrnwy is one of the country’s top sporting estates, so if you’re eager to explore the breathtaking landscapes that surround the hotel, you may want to take in the scenic locations whilst enjoying some or all of the activities that the estate has to offer. Activities include bird watching, cycling, mountain biking, abseiling, archery, game shooting, clay pigeon shooting, sailing, canoeing, kayaking, paddle boarding, and even white water rafting. And of course, there is an abundance of walking and nature trails, whether it’s a lakeshore stroll over 11 miles of flat terrain or an RSPB nature trail through ancient woodland, as old as the last ice age.
