The Gardens and Lake

The extensive gardens contain streams and ponds, with local slate paths.  The house draws its water supply from the steam at the top end of the garden.  A portable barbecue is available on request.


The lake in the grounds is known as Llyn Lockwood -  sometimes  Llyn Gwryd - and it was constructed purely for fishing by Arthur Lockwood in 1927.  In 1946 Lockwood received a grant of £50 from the River Board to set up a trout hatchery at the back of  Hafod y Gwynt. This ensured that the lake was well stocked with trout, as well as the native brown trout which travel up the Gwryd, and down from Cwmfynnon.
