A tranquil country park tucked away in the Darran Valley, two miles north of Bargoed. Take an easy stroll along lakeside paths or wander through shady woodlands. Discover sunny wildflower meadows when you follow our short trail through the Cwmllwydrew Meadows Local Nature Reserve.

If you like it hear enough not to leave, then don't. We've got a campsite with electric hook ups, hot showers, and washing up facilities: stay the week and explore the area.

South Wales is one of the best places for Mountain biking in Europe! A network of cycle paths and scenic trails take you deeper into the historic landscapes of the northern Rhymney Valley. After all that exercise you can take a break in the Lakeside Coffee Shop with a cup of tea and delicious homemade cake and use the Touch Screen interactive games.

Visit the odd shaped Powder Store. Part of the former Ogilvie Colliery on which the park is built, it has been restored and is one of the last remaining in Wales, or walk over the unique wooden footbridge at the former Ogilvie Halt.

You can also hire an MP3 player to listen to the audio trail around the Lake from the visitor centre.
