The views, the walks and the whole area is absolutely stunning. This is a great place to take your dog for a walk and to enjoy the lovely area. We will be back

Fished here on a very hot sunny day but still caught 3 fish and lost as many. Very limited facilities, not even a toilet available. Very quiet location despite being very close to Abertillery.

We visit regularly as love near. It's a short walk, so is perfect for young kids. My son loves a picnic there (and a paddle in summer). Just a lovely local place
