.Moelfre is a delightful little fishing village steeped in maritime history. On the one hand it’s remarkably peaceful and quiet; on the other you can spend several days in Moelfre without running out of things to do or needing to leave the village. And only 12 miles from the Britannia Bridge, Moelfre offers easy access to all of Anglesey, Snowdonia and other parts of North Wales.

Our house is 2 minutes walk from the award winning Moelfre beach which has fantastic views across to the Welsh mountains, great crabbing, paddling and swimming. A stone’s throw from the beach are an Ice Cream shop, Ann’s Pantry (the most wonderful coffee shop and bistro) and the Kinmel Arms (a waterfront pub serving food and drinks.) There’s also a fantastic Fish & Chip shop, a village store and 2 gift shops.


A short walk will take you past the Seawatch Centre to the Moelfre lifeboat station, both of which give insight into the hazards and heroism of seafaring life. A nearby memorial commemorates the 453 lives lost when the Royal Charter ran aground in 1859. Another stands in memory of Dic Evans,  coxswain of the lifeboat that in 1959 rescued the crew of the Hindlea, the wreck of which you can still see at low tide from the headland, viewed from the back of our house.

In either direction the Anglesey coastal path is simply stunning for those who love walking, wildlife, flowers, birds, and coastal scenery. It’s a half hour walk (or 5 min drive!) to Lligwy , a mile wide expanse of sand with a great beach cafe. 



Anglesey offers those wanting to venture further afield  a host of exciting opportunities. The adventurous will want to walk over Holyhead mountain to view the cliffs and seabirds at South Stack, or from Newborough to Llanddwyn Island. Others may prefer to amble through the historic town of Beaumaris taking in the shops and castle, or explore the industrial history of Amlwch with its port and copper mine.


Families with children will enjoy visiting the Anglesey Sea Zoo, Foel Farm and Pili Palas, or running round the National Trust house and gardens at Plas Newydd. The sandy seaside beaches of Benllech and Red Wharf Bay are just 3 miles away. It’s only 12 miles back to the Britannia bridge giving easy access to Snowdonia and other parts of North Wales
