Bosherton LilyPonds

Bosherston Lakes or Lily Ponds as they're also known, have long been famous for their spectacular display of waterlilies and their resident otters. They're a great place to visit if you want to do a bit of wildlife watching and have a waterfront wander.

The lakes are actually man-made and the cracks and fissures in the underlying rock mean that water can flow in and out of them fairly freely. They’re supplied by springs fed by a natural underground reservoir, and the water escapes the same way during dry spells.
