Hotels in Anglesey

The Isle of Anglesey is the perfect destination for a British beach break. The biggest draw is the stunning coastline, most of which has been designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Although Anglesey boasts a whopping 27 beaches (six of which are blue flag) and a blue flag marina, there’s more to the island than the coast.

There are plenty of hotels dotted throughout Anglesey, but one of the best places to base yourself in is in the town of Beaumaris. From here you can see the majestic peak of Mount Snowdon on the mainland, and pay a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage castle. Built by Edward I, it’s the most symmetrical castle in Britain. The town itself has plenty to offer in terms of boutique hotels, gastropubs, and independent shops.

History is at the heart of Anglesey. The island was once known as Môn Mam Cymru (Mother of Wales) and accordingly has the country’s highest concentration of standing stones and megalithic ancient sites. Hiring a bike and cycling through the network of paths is a great way to steep yourself in the history and scenery, without straying too far from your hotel.

The peace and quiet on Anglesey is only interrupted once a year, when the Gottwood Music Festival rolls into town. Well, into the middle of the forest, to be more precise. One of the coolest festivals the British Isles has to offer, Gottwood prides itself on its independent spirit. It’s a great place to catch underground electronic acts before they make it big.

With such beautiful scenery, it’s no surprise that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have made their home on Anglesey. But if Will and Kate can’t put you up in their spare room, fear not. There are plenty of excellent hotels in Anglesey to choose from. From family friendly B&Bs to luxurious four star hotels, there’s something to suit every budget.
