Standing at the foot of Lake Vyrnwy, Llanwddyn is a tiny village in the heart of Powys, Mid Wales. Lake Vyrnwy is man-made, with the dam that created it completed in 1888. The original village of Llanwddyn was submerged by the lake and in dry summers, if the water level drops far enough, the ruins of the old village reappear.
There is both a Visitor Centre and Craft Centre in the village itself and Llanwddyn is a paradise for walkers, with many trails nearby, including the popular Glyndwr's Way that skirts the village. Cyclists appreciate the 13 mile flat trail around the perimeter of the lake and indeed bikes are for hire within the village. ....
