We have just started filming our new series and aim to showcase the coolest walks that Wales has to offer. That way, more people (and their dogs) can share our adventure, and find some of the best-kept secret walking locations in their local area!

The very first episode of Walk of the Week just had to be Lamby Way Fishing Lake. It’s one of our favourite walking spots, and we find ourselves there quite frequently – especially at summertime!

It’s only a couple of minutes from Newport Road - you wouldn’t even know if you drove straight past it; a real hidden gem for dog owners in and around Cardiff.

To find it on Google Maps, click here. Or, check it out on the map below:

The whole landscape around the lake offers plenty of paths to choose from. You can mix it up and go a different route each time. If your dog’s off lead, there’s plenty of wilderness to explore…

The lake itself is used for fishing, so you’ll most likely find people with their rods and tents set up. They’re all really friendly, and usually have their own dogs with them.

You can find out more about fishing at the lake on its official website.


If you’re lucky enough to go in August / September time, you’ll find the area blossoming with blackberries. There are literally thousands of them – maybe more, and they taste great! We pick a couple every time we go.

There’s also free parking available at the Lake, which is great if you drive. We park a little further down the road (just past SOS Gym) at an industrial estate, where it also has free parking. You’ll find a side entrance to the Lake that’s a little quieter; that’s our preferred entrance spot.


Without further ado, check out the first episode!
