Llangorse and Bwlch
Llangorse is a lovely village boasting two pubs, a beautiful 15th Century church as well as access to Llangorse Lake, the largest natural lake in south east Wales.
The lake is a protected wildlife site but is also home to many watersports with boats for hire and has an ancient Crannog (a Royal Palace), built in the Dark Ages - a reconstruction of which can now be visited.
Pony trekking, indoor climbing and high wire courses are available locally.
Llangorse is easily accessible from the A40 as you head through the National Park from the village of Bwlch where you can pick up supplies from the local farm shop or well stocked village stores who have also recently opened a cafe.
Bwlch is the home of the now well established Bwlch with Altitude Challenge which takes place every summer and is a 12 mile walk around the lake from Bwlch and Llangorse respectively, contestants enjoy this event seeking out clues and answers to a number of questions set as part of the challenge’s photographic quiz.
The communities of Llangorse and Bwlch have developed the new Around Llangorse Lake website to help visitors enjoy this lovely part of the National Park.
There is also a new leaflet about the area - this can be downloaded here or picked up at the one of the local tourist information offices. the nearest TIC to Llangorse is at Talgarth.
