The North Wales / Anglesey region
Beyond the mountains of Snowdonia lie 2 famous bridges across the Menai Strait. They lead to an island where peaceful lanes wind to lakes, forests and long, sandy beaches. It is easy to imagine past centuries - druids cursing the Roman invaders, archers loosing arrows at castle battlements, or tall ships sailing up the Menai Strait from a voyage around Cape Horn. However, Anglesey does not live in the past. It is a centre of modern Welsh culture and language which offers a welcome to people from all over the world. Many visitors come to Anglesey for family holidays, to sail, walk or fish, to explore rock pools or watch birds. It is an unspoiled island, to relax and enjoy the peaceful farmland, pretty villages historic towns and the panoramic views of the mountains and the sea.
The Llanfairpwllgwyngyll / Dwyran area
The accommodation is situated off the A4080 about 2 miles from the village of Dwyran. It is also near to the renowned Newborough forest and beach of Llandwen. The village of Dwyran, with its 12th Century parish church, is largely residential and is sited on the South bank of the Afon, a small river that takes its name from Brigantia, Goddess of the ancient Celts. Just outside the village is the Anglesey Model Village where many of the Island's landmarks are recreated in miniature. South of Dwyran, lanes lead through woods and fields to the Menai Strait. Visit Tal y Foel Riding Centre and other attractions such as the Anglesey Sea Zoo, Foel farm, Golf driving range and Henblas Country Park and glorious clean beaches just a ten minute drive away.
How to get there
Click map icons for more information
Along the A55 and across the Britannia Bridge to the Isle of Anglesey. As you cross the bridge take the first slip-road (Junction 8a) and turn left towards Llanfairpwll. You will see the Marquis of Anglesey’s Column on your right. About 200 yds past the Column, just as you enter the 30 mph area, turn left onto the A4080 towards Brynsiencyn and Newborough.
After passing through the village of Brynsiencyn continue on for approx. 2 miles. Ignore the left turn for the Sea Zoo and Foel Farm Park and also the first right turn for the villages of Dwyran and Llangaffo (B4419). At the second right turn for Dwyran you will see a local sign for the Isle of Anglesey Riding Centre (see opposite). Turn left at this staggered junction. Continue now for about 200m (approx. 20 seconds) and follow the No Through Road sign. After a further 250m (approx. 30 seconds) turn right (by the Caravan Club sign), another No Through Road, and follow the road for ½ a mile (approx. 50 seconds).You should have a fine view of the Snowdonia Mountains and the Lleyn Peninsula at this stage (weather permitting!). Turn left down the farm track to Penrhyn Mawr.
