Your activities on and around Anglesey
Anglesey is a great island for walking.
As well as the Anglesey Coastal Path we have The Saints footpaths, circular walks tracing the footsteps of our Island’s early saints. The walks combine Anglesey’s wonderful scenery with many of its historic and prehistoric sites. They are carefully graded, to ensure that the right level can be chosen, and leaflets feature details of all public facilities and amenities along the way.
Isle of Anglesey Coast path
At 125 miles, the Anglesey Coastal Path falls within a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) which covers 90% of the coast. It < href="https://berclas.co.uk/anglesey-coastal-path-to-beaumaris/" title="Our Coast Path walk to Beaumaris">runs along one edge of our land at Coed y Berclas, so if you go to the top of the drive and turn either left or right, you’ll be walking on the Coastal Path. There is a file containing all the Path sections, in both the Cottage and the Apartment.
The Anglesey and Welsh National cycle routes pass through the village (Llandegfan). There is cycle storage in the utility room beside the holiday cottage, and by arrangement, for holiday apartment guests. Sustrans is a charity encouraging people to cycle, walk and use public transport, with pages on their website covering Anglesey/North Wales. There are many good lanes to cycle on Anglesey.
There are also mountain bike routes in Snowdonia. Bike hire and route information is available in a number of locations locally.
If golf is high on your list of things to do on Anglesey, Baron Hill Golf Course, just along the lane from Coed y Berclas, will offer a warm welcome to visitors. Contact them at Beaumaris, Anglesey. North Wales. LL58 8YW. Tel 01248 810231.
