Guided Walking Holidays - The Four Corners of Anglesey

Sinking your toes into the pristine sand of a sweeping bay and listening to the music of the waves is a fine way to end a day’s rambling. Anglesey’s coastal path is one of the best kept secrets of Wales’ largest island, steeped in history, wildlife and natural beauty.

Anglesey offers a wide a variety of walks to choose from and on any walk you can pass towering cliffs, sandy beaches, woodlands, mountains, marshes and grassland.

We have chosen walks in the four corners of this area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to enable you to enjoy as much of the variety of the island as possible. We walk from Malltraeth, crossing over to Llanddwyn Island, with views of Snowdonia and the Lleyn Peninsula. We walk along the coastal path from Holyhead on Holy Island until we reach Trearddur Bay, stopping en route at Ellin’s Tower where you can watch nesting birds on the cliff face. You can visit Beaumaris Castle on the south coast before arriving at Penmon Priory, home of the Penmon Point lighthouse.

During your four walking days, you enjoy a variety of views, from limestone escarpments, wide beaches and sand dunes on the southern coast to dramatic sea cliffs and remote landscapes on the northern coast.

The Celtic Royal Hotel

The Celtic Royal Hotel is a family owned country hotel situated in the centre of Caernarfon, just a 10 minute walk from Caernarfon Harbour and just a 5 minute walk from Caernarfon Castle. Caernarfon is the 'Celtic Heart of Wales', a place where strong cultural roots are seen and heard. Caernarfon enjoys an outstanding location between the rugged peaks of the Snowdonia Mountains and a spectacular stretch of coastline which runs down the Lleyn Peninsula and out into the Irish Sea. Although the hotel is not located in Anglesey itself, it is only a 15 minute drive away. We believe we have chosen a good quality hotel in a lovely location very close to Anglesey.

The hotel has bright and airy bedrooms with en suite facilities, television, tea and coffee making facilities and hairdryer. The hotel has an indoor heated swimming pool, sauna, steam room and a fully equipped fitness suite. Complimentary Wi-Fi and free on-site parking is available.
