LLANGORSE LAKE 

Surrounded by a patchwork of green hills, fields, meadows and hedgerows, Llangorse is a truly beautiful spot and a lovely place to sail or paddle. You can launch your own craft from the boat hire centre or the sailing club, both of which are on Llangorse Common on the northwest shore, or hire a dinghy, windsurfer, canoe, kayak, stand-up paddleboard, pedalo or rowing boat.

WATERFALL COUNTRY

One part of our National Park, at the head of the Vale of Neath, has so many wonderful waterfalls that we call it Waterfall Country. Many of these cascades are easily accessible on foot, as long as you’re prepared to walk through beautiful woods to get there.
