Find Us

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.

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. Bicycle parking is available.

Public Transport

The nearest train station is approximately three miles away at Clarbeston Road. The usual service pattern is one train every two hours in each direction, westwards to Milford Haven and eastwards to Manchester Piccadilly via Swansea and Cardiff Central. Trains stop here by request only. After alighting from the train, head north out of the village, past The Cross Inn and follow the brown signs to Llys-y-frân Country Park. Please allow for about 1 hour 15 minute walk to the visitor centre.
