Circular Walk; Llys y Fran Reservoir

Llys y Fran ReservoirThe walk around Llys y Fran is beautiful and offers yet another perspective to Pembrokeshire’s varying landscape. The route is about 7 miles


The path is wide, easy to follow and generally in good condition, although there will be muddy sections following wet weather.


There are picnic sites with benches dotted around the path, so why not take a picnic and make a day of it?


If you prefer to ride, you can hire bikes from the Visitors’ Centre or you can use your own after purchasing a permit.


The walk is ‘dog friendly’ as there are no gates or stiles. However, you are expected to keep them on leads.
