Anglesey can get busy in summer, but you escape it all at this CL

Access is easy down a few narrow lanes. There is no CL sign on the turning after the working farm: the turning has a yellow fire hydrant sign on the corner. N CL sign on the Bron Menai drive entrance either but the name is clearly displayed. Entrance is wide as is access to the field. Field is on a gentle slope and had been cut soon before we arrived. A very well maintained CL with water, waste, bins etc on the CL itself. There’s 10 hook up points around the CL so even if there are 4 outfits on site when you arrive you’ll still have a choice of pitch. Access drive is stone. Turning into the CL and the CL itself 100% grass which can get soft after rain. We’d previously attempted to book April 2016 after rain but Joan said that we could only stay if we had 4x4. We stayed May 2017. It rained for about 12 hours when we were on site but ground remained firm. Anglesey can be a windy place. This site is quite sheltered surrounded by high hedges. There are partial views of Snowdonia from some pitches. Joan is very welcoming and let us stay well after midday on the day of departure because she had no one booked to come on. Joan runs a B&B which is often used by family and friends visiting members staying on the CL. The Anglesey Coastal Path runs adjacent to the other side of the B&B, access from the road a short walk from the CL. Take the Path north/west you will reach the Giant’s Stepping Stones after a mile and a half. The route is mainly gated but there are two stiles. Take the Path south/east and it will wind its way down minor lanes and tracks reaching the Menai Straight after 2 miles. The fabulous Newborough forest (which has about 50 miles of footpaths criss crossing it) and beach (5 miles of sand) is 5 miles from the CL. It is operated by the Council. There’s a £4 charge per vehicle. Loads of parking in the forest and by the beach. The forest and beach are extremely popular. The narrow access road is through Newborough village. I’ve only visited spring and autumn when it is busy enough. The Council kiosk is only staffed till 6 pm when I’ve visited after which access is free of charge. There are a couple of free carparks in the forest immediately off the A4080 a few miles north of Newborough. These give access to quieter parts of the forest though the beach and a 2.5 mile walk to the beach. The forest is great for everyone: there are waymarked walking and biking trails. There are also waymarked running and horse trekking trails – something I’d never previously seen sign posted in a forest before. There are many more unmarked trails. Very popular with dog walkers. Dogs aren’t permitted onto the popular section of beach between the carpark and Llanddwyn island 1 May to 30 September, but that still leaves miles of beach open to dog walkers. Anglesey Riding School is a mile away from the CL. This is popular with locals and tourists with views of the Menai, Snowdonia and the Llyn mountains.
