    We have recently acquired a motorhome, so still learning! Easy to park, delicious ice cream and beautiful sands to walk the dogs. Would recommend

    Tickets are best purchased at the hut outside the cafe, contactless payment is available. Walk to the lighthouse is not really suitable for anyone with mobility problems. There is a zig-zag path containing stone steps of varying depths (450 in all I believe) and the view along the cliff makes it a really pleasant descent. You cross a covered bridge to the island where your tickets are checked. There is no wi-fi on the island and one young couple were turned back as they hadn't brought tickets. The 150 steps up to the top were too much for my husband. The last steps into the lamp area are steep; like a ladder but more secure. The guides were very informative

    Stunning beach, did not manage to go walking in the forest owing to wife’s choice of footwear. Very busy of course. Toilet facilities in car park somewhat limited but owing to location it is what it is. Could do with a cafe down there alongside the ice cream van and kitchen stand. The latter seemed very reasonably priced considering the location and lack of competition in the immediate vicinity. Car parking: if you’re going to the beach use the beach car park as others are miles away (unless you fancy combining beach trip with a walk around the forest). Be aware from the entrance to beach is down hill so if you do take that as an option it is uphill all the way back- unless you do it in reverse! Car park is ANPR, 2 quid and then 40p for each hour thereafter if I remember rightly. Not a lot for the upkeep of this lovey part of Anglesey.

    Great place to visit; allows dogs on the ground levels, great for us as we had our pooch with us.

    Good site for all, whether interested in history, or not.

    Staff very welcoming and helpful.

    This is an interesting place with the history clearly displayed.
    It is easy and sad to recall the lives of the inmates especially the ones
    Who took the final walk to the noose.

    The problem with gardens like this is that the walking can be an issue for some people, particularly as the best is hardest to get to. If you can manage it, then it is rather good. We enjoyed our day there.
    The fact that it is a return visit perhaps says most.
    A minor point to note is that if there is a coach in the car park, then the cafe is likely to be a bit busy. Since we first visited, the seating area has increased. I enjoyed a tuna jacket.

    Absolutely lovely place, knowledgeable rspb staff and volunteers. Great cafe. This was our second attempt to visit. First time we arrived at noon on a Sunday. The 3 carparks were totally full with cars circling in each to try to find a space. The second time we arrived before 10 on a Monday. The main carpark was full by 10.30am. We parked without a problem, although you do need £5 in cash, or join the RSPB for free parking. Well worth it, saw puffins and thousands of Guillemots.

    Lovely stroll , wear the correct footwear as there are plenty of rocks , wear the correct clothing for the walk , water is a must.
    It’s lovely on a sunny but if the weather takes a turn it could be a challenge.
    Plan before you go .
    ENJOY

    Scenic location overlooking the Menai Strait with plenty of walking options through the grounds. The house was interesting enough, especially the Rex Whistler exhibition, but the ongoing maintenance work is currently impacting on the full experience. There is the usual NT gift shop offering and a sizeable cafe, although the combination of rain and a substantial coach party meant this was crammed and a large queue so we headed off elsewhere in search of a coffee. Well worth a visit but try and catch it on a dry day (and dodge the coach parties if you can).

    Natural Resources Wales car park fees (2022): £2 for the first 2 hours, 40p for every additional 20 minutes. £7 maximum charge per day. Between 5pm and 9am the following day, a height barrier is put in place to prevent vehicles over 2 metres high from entering the car park (but all vehicles can still exit in this period). Pay on exit by machine, automatic number plate recognition.

    About 6km to walk along the beach, go around Llanddwyn Island and return. 1.5 hours of brisk walking, but allow more time as there's places to explore and to savour. If the charming, cottage museum is closed, you can still look through the windows to see inside.

    It becomes an island at High Water time on the fortnightly big Spring tides (very roughly, a 9.5m tide or more, at Liverpool). If on the island in that period, you might have to paddle, wade, or wait a while to get back.... more tricky if it's very windy with waves swirling around. It's a popular spot in summer, especially on a sunny day, but it's still a memorable, atmospheric place to visit.

    Visited in the hope of seeing the red squirrels and was not disappointed. On finding the feeding station was treated to the sight of 2 of them feeding and running about in the trees.
    Nice woodland walks. The tide was in on day we were there so the waders were elsewhere. However they make appearances as the tide recedes.

    Spent a lovely 1 1/2 hours at the museum this afternoon. Very interesting and brought alive by a great guide (sorry we didn’t have your name). Fascinating and really worth the entry ticket.

    Stunning. Beautiful beach, the island is stunning and the woods is great for cycling and walking.

    The car park is very busy and quite expensive.

    Quite a long walk to and from the island and back to the car park so take snacks if you have small children.

    Check tide times in advance.

    After visiting Beaumaris Castle we headed to the pier. Plenty of families crabbing.

    There is a little ice-cream shop at the entrance to the pier, which also sells things such as bucket/spade; crabbing things, etc.

    Coblynau are mythical gnome-like creatures that are said to haunt the mines and quarries of Wales and areas of Welsh settlements.Like the Knockers of Cornish folklore, they often help miners to the richest veins of ore or other treasures by their peculiar knocking sound.Ugly little guys but very lovable all the same. We took a lovely walk around Parys Mountain this evening to see if we could spot any of the mischievous little men. I haven't been on the mountain for some years and it was lovely to be there again. The mountain was peaceful and all we could hear was distant bird song and a faint knocking kind of sound. We walked he circular walk and found the marker posts with arrows on extremely helpful. We didn't get lost once.
