I have lived in the area for many years and visit bewl most weekends. Lovely and tranquil area that is great for dog walks or cycling. The main area has great play areas for children and the cafe sells delicious fresh baguettes and salads. What's not to love!

I did not have much time to walk or drive around, as I had busy days with other attractions, but back to the motel I stopped both day to take some pictures. It is in a hidden place, and by car or bicycle can go on small, tight forest roads, however I am sure there are better roads too to... More

We took a drive to Bewl Water for a day out with the children and parents, and decided to take lunch in the Waterfront Cafe, what a mistake that turned out to be!

A good morning out at the park with the children and a lovely walk around the dam. Children were fascinated by dogs jumping down to the dam! Back to the cafe for a low key lunch. Good choice of fresh sandwiches including child friendly lunch boxes.

The walk around Bewl Water was lovely, perfect for anyone who loves nature. It can be busy with bikes but that generally wasn't an issue. The car parking price I heard was very expensive, however, we camped at Cedar Gables so we walked down to Bewl Water. The only place to eat or drink was the waterfront restaurant which we... More

We took our two dogs here for a walk whilst on our mini-moon, and had a lovely yet very tiring walk around the very large area. We walked anti-clockwise and ended up making it to Jettie 4 (around 8 miles into the walk) as both the dogs and us were knackered! The main point I think that needs mentioning here... More

We'll it started off ok, lovely surroundings! However, the signs were totally unclear and we got totally lost! The tracks were dangerous in parts and having to navigate a lot of walkers! After about 20 miles I had to leave my husband and pick the car up to get him! No help offered! Won't be returning!
