Llangorse is a popular village with tourists as it is home to Wales’s largest natural lake, Llangorse Lake. Here visitors can try canoeing, sailing, windsurfing, rowing and water-skiing, as well as the gentler pastimes of coarse fishing and wildlife watching. The village also boasts a large activity centre offering pony trekking, indoor climbing, treetop rope challenges and the new Sky Trek – a course of aerial zip wires!
If all that is not enough to entice you to visit, Llangorse is also situated in the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park and boasts stunning surroundings just crying out to be explored - whichever way you decide to do it!
