Journey to West Wales.

By Car

We are a short 20 minute drive north east of the ancient county town of Haverford West. Just follow the Llys-y-Frân brown signs from the A40. We have ample parking on site with disabled parking bays close to the Visitor Centre, café & toilets. We are just over 2 hours’ drive from Cardiff, Wales’ capital city. Just head west along the M4. If you are coming from England – great news, the Second Severn Crossing known as the Prince of Wales Bridge is now toll free.

By Bike

Pembrokeshire is great for exploring on two wheels. If you are a keen cyclist and are arriving by bike you can stop and refuel at our café, get your bike checked out at our bike hub before heading off again on one of our waymarked cycle trails. Take it easy or challenge yourself by choosing to one of the 12 red, blue and green graded sections. Or you can book in advance to have a go on our Pump Skills Area.

West is Best

Pembrokeshire is a county in the south west part of Wales. It’s famous for its 186 miles of coastline and stunning beaches. But Pembrokeshire also has a magnificent in-land body of water and Llys-y-Frân Lake is safe, clean and has no tides so you can enjoy watersports all day long. The Preseli Mountains that surround us dominate the landscape. The tallest peak, reaching as far as you can see is Foel Cwmcerwyn, the highest point (536m) in the Preseli Mountains.

The Coastal Way

The Wales Way is a family of three national routes that lead you into the heart of real Wales. The idea is to zig zag across Wales stopping off to discover, castles, towns, beaches and hidden gems like Llys-y-Frân Lake. The Coastal Way leads you on a stunning road trip along the spine of Wales for 185 miles. Make sure you add Llys-y-Frân to your Pembrokeshire itinerary – you will definitely not be disappointed.
