This secluded picnic spot on the River Edw is quiet, peaceful and perfect for a paddle or even a swim. The river has slow and gentle sections for paddling, faster sections for older children and waist deep (on an adult) pools. There are lots of options for walking nearby such as Aberedw Castle and Llewelyn’s Cave.
N.B. always take care near rivers and don’t go close after heavy rain or if they are in flood.
