There really is something for all members of the family on Anglesey, and this includes the four legged ones with the island being a treasure trove of pet friendly attractions. From beaches and woodland walks, to castles and boat trips, there are plenty of activities to choose from.

Here at Bulmer Leisure, we are unashamedly a bunch of dog lovers and we’ve been to the vast majority of the pet friendly attractions on Anglesey with our own four legged friends. That puts us in a great position to be able to judge what the best things to do in Anglesey with dogs are for anyone who is planning to visit the island in the upcoming months.

Without further ado, here are our top 5 best things to do in Anglesey with dogs:

1. Head to the Beach

There are plenty of stunning dog friendly beaches on Anglesey which are just waiting to be explored, and our North Wales holiday parks are situated just a stone’s throw away from two of the best of them.

Those who own a holiday home at Silver Bay will enjoy having direct access to Silver Bay beach which has recently been awarded a prestigious Green Coast Award on account of its excellent water quality and unspoilt natural environment. You can let your four legged friend run freely here safe in the knowledge that the waters are as pure as is possible.

Holiday home owners at our Woodland Falls Holiday Park meanwhile will find themselves situated just a short 10 minute walk away from Lligwy beach which was recently named the best beach in North Wales by The Sunday Times. In addition to scenic coastal walks on Lligwy beach itself, you can also soak up the tranquillity that is afforded on the picturesque woodland walking routes which lead to the beach from our holiday resort.

2. Explore Newborough Forest

If walking is your thing, then there are plenty of other woodland walking routes you can choose from on Anglesey too. Some of the most popular of these are to be found in Newborough Forest on the south west shores of the island.

Animal lovers will love the opportunity to catch a glimpse of the endangered red squirrels, with Newborough Forest being one of the most important conservation areas in the United Kingdom.

There are a selection of different routes to choose from in the Forest. This includes an animal puzzle trail which is ideal for keeping the kids entertained as you make your way around.

If you would prefer to catch a proper glimpse of the inhabitant red squirrels though, then you may prefer to take the red squirrel discovery trail. You’ll find a number of information panels on your way around giving you the low down on the forest’s most famous residents.

3. Visit Beaumaris Castle

One of the most picturesque castles in Anglesey is unquestionably Beaumaris Castle. Surrounded by a fully functional moat, this historic wonder is quite simply awe inspiring and has a history which dates back to the 13th century.

What’s more, Beaumaris Castle is one of the few pet friendly castles to visit on Anglesey, with dogs welcome on all the ground floor sections of the historic building as long as they are kept on a short lead.

You can really make a day of it in Beaumaris with there being a plethora of pet friendly attractions in the town. After a visit to the castle, you can take a stroll down to the Beaumaris seafront and pier for a scenic coastal walk and enjoy a bite to eat in one of the dog friendly restaurants such as the Pier House Café & Bistro which is a haven for seafood fans.

4. Enjoy a Boat Trip to Puffin Island

Another popular attraction in Beaumaris are the Puffin Island boat trips which are available to catch from the seafront.

As the name suggests, there are quite a few puffins on this otherwise uninhabited island. In fact it is a special protection area for wildlife on account of being home to over 10% of the national population of these monochrome birds.

One of the few man made attractions on the island is the 12th century monastery ruins. You can pay a visit here on your way round the island which provides walks with spectacular coastal views. A trip to Puffin Island is sure to delight the humans of the group just as much as the pooches.

5. Grab a Bite to Eat

There are some genuinely fabulous dog friendly restaurants on Anglesey and picking the best of these is no mean feat. However, if you were to really push us on an answer to this query we would have to go with the Oystercatcher.

Situated in Rhosneigr just a few minutes walk away from Treath Llydan beach, this exquisite eatery has garnered a reputation for being one of the finest restaurants on the island. It offers a wide selection of fresh seafood in addition to more conventional gastropub classics.

The reason we have given it the nod over the competition is that it is genuinely one of the most dog welcoming restaurants on Anglesey on account of having its own “Doggy Dinner” menu. This consists of dog friendly variants of fish & chips, Sunday dinners and even Puppydelle (Spaghetti, tuna, peas & olive oil).

Customers are welcome to take their canines inside, but when the weather is accommodating we would highly recommend dining al fresco in the Oystercatcher’s outdoor terrace where you take in the wonderful coastal vistas.


Wild swimming is the new craze that is sweeping across the country, with an increasing number of people choosing to brave the elements in all seasons, even during the winter months.

For the benefit of the uninitiated, wild swimming is simply outdoor swimming in a pool of water. This could be a river, lake or even the sea. While the prospect of entering the cold water may seem a little daunting at first, you will find that your body quickly adapts to the temperature. The average Anglesey sea temperature across the year is approximately 12 degrees, with a low of 6.8 degrees in January and a high of 17.8 degrees in August. By the summer months, you may therefore even start to feel warm once you start swimming around.

Wild swimming is a great way to keep in shape and connect with Mother Nature. There is even evidence that entering cold water is good for your health as it forces your body to go into survival mode. While this might sound bad, it actually increases blood circulation around your body which results in freshly oxygenated blood being delivered to areas of the body that are in need of recovery. This is a great way of addressing stubborn aches and pains in your muscles, particularly if they are strained on account of exercise.

Best Anglesey Wild Swimming Locations

You will find that there are plenty of fantastic Anglesey wild swimming locations just waiting to be explored should you decide to partake in this increasingly popular activity. In fact, there are two such destinations right on the doorstep of our two Anglesey holiday parks.

We’ve put a list together of some of the best Anglesey wild swimming locations for you to take into consideration the next time that you are holidaying on the island:

1. Silver Bay Beach

If you are lucky enough to own a holiday home at Silver Bay Holiday Park, then you will find that you will have one of the very best beaches in North Wales for swimming right on your doorstep.

Silver Bay beach is directly accessible from our holiday park and has recently been named one of the cleanest beaches in North Wales. It has also received a green coast award which is given to beaches which are deemed to have excellent water quality and high environmental standards. This makes it ideal for a quick dip should you decide to take up the hobby.

2. Lligwy Beach

Our Woodland Falls Holiday Park meanwhile is just a short walk away from Lligwy beach and was recently voted the number 1 beach in Wales by the Sunday Times.

As with Silver Bay, it has also picked up a Green Coast Award on account of its excellent water quality & high environmental standards. You can therefore take to the waters safe in the knowledge that you are entering one of the cleanest areas of coastline in the country.

3. Llanddwyn Island

Llanddwyn Island is a stunning island just off the west coast of Anglesey which can only be accessed on foot. You can make your way there through Newborough Warren National Reserve which will provide you with exceptional views on your short walk.

Once you reach the beach you will find that there are secluded rock coves and low tide pools which are the perfect place to chill out once you have acclimated to the temperature. Just make sure that you don’t stray too far from the shore, as a strong current tends to pick up rather quickly.

4. Trearddur Bay

Trearddur Bay is one of the most popular beach holiday destinations on the island and it also happens to be one of the best swimming beaches on Anglesey too on account of the calm waters and sandy beach.

Sat alongside Trearddur Bay is the excellent Sea Shanty Cafe which opens from 11:30am throughout the week. Here you can grab a warming cup of tea or hot meal as a reward for braving the cold waters. Might be best to avoid the ice cream though.

5. Rhosneigr Beach

Just making it into our top 5 is Rhosneigr beach which is located just 13 miles away from our Silver Bay Holiday Park.

This is a truly beautiful sandy beach which affords superb views of Snowdonia mountain. Once you take to the waters you will find that you can swim a fair way out before finding the water is too deep for you to be able to stand. The sheltered location also ensures that the currents do not get too strong, making it the perfect wild swimming beach on Anglesey for beginners.


There are 7 golf courses on Anglesey in total and there can be no question that some of these are amongst the very best in the UK, with challenging layouts which are complemented by stunning natural surroundings.

We have taken on the task of whittling these down to a definitive list of what we consider to be the top 5 best golf courses on Anglesey for the benefit of any golf enthusiasts who are planning on making a trip to the island over the coming months.

1. The Anglesey Golf Club, Rhosneigr

Perhaps rather fittingly, it is the Anglesey golf club which comes out on top. Based in Rhosneigr, this 18 hole links golf course offers a stern challenge to even the most experienced of golfers with its abundance of sand dunes and countless streams in what is an important conservation area.

Anglesey Golf Club can trace its origins back to 1914 and the double open champion Harold Hilton who was responsible for its creation. He certainly picked a prime location, with golfers able to enjoy stunning views of Snowdonia and the Llŷn Peninsula.

The quality of the course and the facilities on-site has resulted in Anglesey Golf Club regularly playing host to North Wales county championship matches. It is also open all year round, with the sandy soil drains ensuring that the course remains in peak condition whatever the weather.

2. Holyhead Golf Club, Holy Island

Dating back to 1912, Holyhead Golf Club was originally opened as a 9 hole course, but was later extended to a complete 18 hole configuration by none other than 5 times Open Championship winner James Braid.

Located on Holy Island, it is now a 6,090 par 71 course which retains some of old fashioned design characteristics with fairways that cross over at the 6th and 7th holes in what is a fairly compact configuration. It therefore offers players quite a challenge, exacerbated by the undulating fairways.

It isn’t just a treat for golf enthusiasts though, with stunning panoramic views offered from the elevated 10th hole. The on-site clubhouse is another highlight, with an eclectic range consisting of sensational breakfasts, light bites, stone baked pizzas and traditional pub grub.

3. Bull Bay Golf Club, Amlwch

Located less than 7 miles away from our Woodland Falls Holiday Park, Bull Bay Golf Club was opened way back in 1913 having been designed by renowned golf course architect William Herbert Fowler who was responsible for countless classics across the UK and USA including Walton Heath Golf Club.

Bull Bay Golf Club is unquestionably one of Fowlers’ best and it retains many of the classic features to this day with plenty of blind shots and holes where the green is above the eyeline as an approach is played. When it comes to what is in eyeline, the course also offers spectacular coastal views overlooking the Irish Sea.

All of this combines to make Bull Bay Golf Club a bit of a hidden gem on the island and well worth a visit for beginners and experienced players alike.

4. Storws Wen Golf Club, Brynteg

The top 9 hole golf course in Anglesey on our list is Stows Wen Golf Club in Brynteg. This club is also located close to Woodland Falls Holiday Park, being just four miles away and confirming our resort as being one which is primely positioned for any golf enthusiasts who are looking to purchase an Anglesey holiday home.

Stows Wen Golf Club is one of the more recent to have been constructed on the island, having first opened its doors in 1996. Although it is only 9 holes, it still presents golfers with the chance to play 18 hole forms from numerous tee positions. All configurations will present a challenge to players with numerous streams and lakes to take into consideration.

Another factor which reflects favourably on this course are the stunning views of both Snowdonia and Red Wharf Bay. This certainly makes things a little more bearable if you are having a bit of an off day with your golf on this challenging course.

5. Henllys Golf Club, Beaumaris

Just making it onto our top 5 list ahead of Baron Hill golf club (in what was quite a tough call) is Henllys Golf Club on the outskirts of the historic town of Beaumaris.

Overlooking the Menai Strait, this 18 hole golf course is set on the grounds of Henllys Hall, a former school which was run by Franciscans. This parkland course has a par of 71 and makes excellent use of the natural features on the land to create a challenge for golfers of all abilities. Such features include water hazards including a number of streams and ponds as is typical with most other Anglesey golf courses.

This course would have finished above Stows Wen Golf Club if it wasn’t for the relatively high green fee. However it does have an exceptional club house and restaurant, not to mention the challenge of the course which makes it a must visit for any golf enthusiasts visiting the island.

Anglesey is often thought of as being a tranquil island of stunning natural beauty. However, this reputation does not reflect the many adrenaline fuelled sporting activities which are available to enjoy on the island throughout the year.

Whilst watersports such as surfing and kayaking are relatively well associated with Anglesey, a surprising number of holidaymakers are unaware that the island is also home to one of the UK’s most modern motoring racing circuits!

Anglesey circuit is located in Ty Croes, which is approximately a 30 minute drive away from our Silver Bay Holiday Park. The current iteration of the circuit opened its doors in 2007, at which point the former British Army facility was transformed into a modern racing circuit capable of hosting almost every kind of motorsport activity. These activities can range from single seater racing car and motorcycle races, all the way through to stage rallies and private track days for those who want to get behind the wheel for themselves.

Read on to learn more about the events and experiences that are on offer at the venue and to find out why North Wales has a more prestigious motor racing history than you might think.

What Do Drivers Think of Anglesey Race Circuit?

Who better to rate the circuit than a fully fledged motorsports star who has competed against the very best in prestigious events such as the Isle of Man TT?

Motorcycle racer Peter Williams declared the circuit to be “the most scenic in the UK”, with the 1971 Ulster Grand Prix winner also citing the scenic drive to the venue as being one of the many highlights. He isn’t alone in that opinion, with countless petrol heads choosing Anglesey race circuit as their venue of choice for track days throughout the year.

The landscape has been fully exploited here to create an undulating layout which even features a 10% banked corner in addition to fast sweeps and hairpin bends which are intended to really test the skills of car and motorcycle racers alike. Not many circuits can please both categories, but Anglesey Race Circuit is one of the exceptions.

Anglesey Circuit Events

Anglesey circuit has sadly not yet attracted the attention of the major international championships that its licence permits it to host. The general consensus in the industry seems to be that the off the beaten track location proves off-putting for those who reside in motorsport valley (Oxfordshire and the Midlands).

Nevertheless, Anglesey circuit has an eclectic and ever changing calendar of on-track events made up of Anglesey circuit track days and various national championship races. You can keep up to date with this eclectic calendar by visiting the Anglesey circuit website.

There are also occasional one off events such as the 2019 Tom Pryce Memorial Trophy which drew motorsport fans from across the country. Pryce became the first and, so far only, Welshman to have won a Formula 1 race when he triumphed at the 1975 Race of Champions event in Brands Hatch. Although this race was not an official round of the F1 championship, the grandeur of the race enticed some of the sport’s very best drivers to take part. The prestigious line-up included double F1 world champion Emerson Fittipaldi and 1979 champion Jody Scheckter.

Despite having inferior equipment to these more accomplished racers, Pryce mastered the wet conditions to come out on top. Many more wins were expected, but Pryce sadly lost his life at the 1977 South African Grand Prix. The memory of the Welshman was honoured at this Anglesey circuit event with his 1972 Formula 3 car being put through its paces in front of spectators.

Driving Experiences at Anglesey Circuit

If you fancy yourself as a bit of a Tom Pryce, then you too can get behind the wheel at Anglesey circuit in a choice of thrilling racing cars. You can choose from touring cars and sports cars, all the way through to single seater race cars.

These driving experiences start with a complete briefing and lap familiarisation sessions with a fully qualified racing instructor before you get the chance to burn some rubber for yourself. One of the most impressive vehicles you have to choose from includes a Formula Ford 1600 car similar to those which were once driven by aspiring young F1 drivers such as Ayrton Senna and Nigel Mansell on their journey to the pinnacle of the sport.

If you aren’t quite comfortable enough to take the wheel for yourself, then you can opt for a thrilling passenger ride in a Ford Fiesta touring car or Lotus Elise sports car.

Anglesey Circuit Track Days

If you are lucky enough to own a high performance motorbike or car yourself, then you can also test the limits of your machinery on one of the many Anglesey circuit track days.

Track day participants are required to arrive at the circuit at 07:30 to collect their wristbands in preparation for sighting laps between 09:00 and 09:30. The circuit is then your oyster before the pitlane closes at 17:00.

The on-site cafe is usually open throughout each track day serving everything from light bites and drinks, all the way through to most substantial meals such as their highly rated pie of the day. Just make sure not to overfill yourself before heading back on track!

Irrespective of whether you are looking to introduce your kids to a spot of crab fishing or a more experienced angler looking to take advantage of one of the many sea fishing trips on Anglesey, we have it covered. Read on to learn more…

Beach Fishing on Anglesey

If you are lucky enough to be a holiday home owner at our Silver Bay Holiday Park, then you will enjoy direct access to Silver Bay beach which is a prime fishing spot on the island.

Based in Rhoscolyn, Silver Bay beach runs alongside our holiday park. Anglers who head here will regularly find pollack and mackerel, in addition to cod and tope at certain points of the year. Irrespective of whether you are rock fishing at Silver Bay or looking to arrange a sea fishing charter, you will still be in with a great chance of hooking an impressive specimen.

Peak season for fishing at Silver Bay beach tends to be between July and October, with dusk and dawn being the optimal times of day. However, there tends to be plenty of species in the waters at any time of the year. Just remember to wrap up warm during the winter months.

Rock & Sea Fishing in Moelfre

If you are a holiday home owner at our Woodland Falls Holiday Park meanwhile, then you will be best opting for a spot of sea fishing in Moelfre if you are looking to stay local, with Moelfre beach being located just over 2 miles away from our resort.

There is plenty of free parking available near to this shingle beach which is a great destination for catching mackerel, pollack, dogfish, wrasse and many other species off the rocks.

If you have made the early morning trip, then you are advised to head to the nearby Traeth Bychan Beach Shop & Café which is open between Easter and September every year. The menu on offer here is varied, but their breakfast range is sure to give you the kick start to the day that you need.

The Best Anglesey Sea Fishing Trips

There is a wealth of Anglesey sea fishing trips available to choose from with some of the more popular setting sail from Holyhead. One option is the aptly named Anglesey Fishing & Boat trips, who offer everything from wreck fishing on Anglesey for the more experienced anglers to introductory sessions for children aged 5 and over.

Any newcomers to the hobby who want to avoid doing harm to the creatures will be delighted to know that tope fishing is on offer to customers taking these trips. For anyone who hasn’t encountered this term, it is effectively the practice of catching and releasing fish without taking them out of the water.

Vouchers are also available to purchase from the firm as a fantastic gift idea for the fishing fan in your life.

Best Fishing Lakes on Anglesey

It’s not all about the sea fishing though, with there also being a number of great fishing lakes on Anglesey too.

One of the best of these is unquestionably Breakwater Country Park in Holyhead. This falls under the umbrella of the Ynys Mon Angling Association’s collection of coarse fishing spots. Day tickets are available to purchase which give you access to the three fishing lakes that are on offer here with bream, carp, pike, tench, pike and perch are just some of the species that you will find. There are also disabled fishing positions available here.

Alongside being a prime Anglesey fishing spot, these lakes are also set in very picturesque surroundings with sections of the park being located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The history of the area is also fully reflected here with the park being entrenched in a site which was formerly the longest stone quarry in Europe.

On the other side of the island there is Llyn Y Gorse Coarse fishery too. As with Breakwater country park, there are three fishing lakes on offer here, with one being a carp syndicate lake and another being dedicated to catfish. This is in addition to a large tackle shop which stocks all of the fishing essentials.

As dog friendly holiday parks, we know the importance of having lots of pooch-pleasing activities lined up when you come to stay with us. So, as a matter of high importance, we’ve been out and about, finding great places for you to visit around Anglesey when you next stay with us. Take a look below at our six dog friendly adventures around Anglesey.

Silver Bay Beach

A short 5-minute walk along the private footpath and you’ve arrived at the beautiful sandy beach of Silver Bay. On a sunny day, it can feel like you’re simply strolling along the shores of a Greek Island.

This clean beach provides your four-legged friend ample running space and the calm waves in the icy blue clear water are ideal for a game of fetch. If you fancy a bit more of a challenge a right turn before you get to the beach will take you along a coastal path of grassy sand dunes and open out onto Rhoscolyn beach and further along, Treadurr Bay.

The friendly staff will immediately provide your dog with a drinking bowl and of course most importantly plenty of fuss, treats and cuddles. To quench your own thirst the pub is well known for serving real ales and has a fantastic selection of wines. Dogs are welcome inside in the snug and outside on their balcony area.

The Menai Strait 

Sites, seas and smells oh my! Just beyond the shores of Beaumaris is a small island known as Puffin Island. A guided dog-friendly boat trip with Seacoast Safaris will show you the best of the Menai strait with a trip up to the island. Its rocky face inhabits an array of birds like puffins, shags and kittiwakes; and the shores themselves are home to seals, dolphins and porpoises.

Red Wharf Bay 

A hotspot for water sports lovers Red Wharf Bay, bordered by salt marshes and sand dunes is a great spot for a dog-friendly walk along the east coast of the island. There are no restrictions on this beach and so your dog is free to explore and chase all of the seagulls that frequent this beautiful shore. After exploring the huge expanse of sand, a pit stop at The Boat House for some refreshment is a must.

Treaddur Bay 

A well-facilitated beach surrounded by rockpools Treadurr Bay is a must-visit for a dog-friendly day on Anglesey. Its located just a couple of miles from Rhoscolyn and is renowned for being one of Anglesey’s best beaches. Whilst dogs are permitted all year long, there are some restrictions to the eastern side of the beach that are well signposted. This doesn’t stop your dog from making the most of the curved slopes of sand enveloping the crystal clear waters. At low tide, there is plenty of running space and at high tide, just a few paw prints in the sand and you’re in the calm water. Along the promenade, you’ll find plenty of amenities, for ultimate comfort we’d recommend taking advantage of the outdoor sofas at Oceans Edge restaurant or for something a little bit more beachy the dog-friendly Sea Shanty café. On hot days there is also sure to be an ice cream van, an ice cream for you and your dog is the perfect rest bite after a day in the sun.

Which Holiday Home Should I Buy?

Purchasing your very own holiday home is a very big decision. Apart from the initial purchase fee, you will also need to consider running costs and on-going maintenance. 

The holiday home you buy can have a massive impact on all of this with some manufacturers adhering to a higher baseline standards than others. That is where the BS3632 regulations come in.

What Are BS3632 Standards?


Back in 1963, the UK government published the BS3632 standards to dictate the minimum quality criteria that residential UK holiday homes should adhere to. This was intended to protect buyers by adding a layer of security in the buying process. 

These standards cover a wide variety of areas. From a safety perspective, a minimum standard of building materials and construction methods are outlined to ensure that all holiday homes are suitable for habitation; fundamental in ensuring the safety of both yourself and your family. 

Running costs are also taken into account with the inclusion of criteria such as insulation, double glazing and much more.

Do All UK Holiday Homes Meet BS3632 Standards?


The simple answer to this is, no! 

Some holiday homes may instead meet the EN1647 standards which are an alternative set of regulations utilised within the EU. 

Sadly EN1647 standards are nowhere near as extensive as those which govern the UK holiday home industry. The EU regulations are instead intended to provide a minimum standard of park homes which are to be used as temporary holiday accommodation as opposed to full time residential purposes. 

Naturally this means that EU holiday homes do not need to be designed to be as enduring as their UK equivalents. This can impact not only on running cost on account of reduced insulation levels for example, but even affect safety standards with the building techniques outlined being far less stringent. 

How Do I Know The Difference?


Any UK holiday homes which adhere to the superior BS3632 standards will proudly display the below logo. This is the easiest way to identify a holiday home which is designed to stand the test of time:

However, should you find yourself in doubt, make sure that you ask before committing to a purchase! You wouldn’t buy a car without looking into its Euro Ncap rating or fuel efficiency, so why act any differently when it comes to making the big decision on which holiday home is right for you?

Here at Bulmer Leisure, we can guarantee that all of the new and preloved holiday homes that we have for sale on our Anglesey holiday parks adhere to the more stringent BS3632 standards. When you purchase a holiday home from us, you can therefore be confident that your home away from home will be safe for your family and efficient when it comes to long-term running fees.

Our new additions to the schedule hopefully offer something for everyone! These include; Paint and Mocktails, Build a Hedgehog House, Water Dodgeball, Silver Bay Sports Day and more!

Of course there’s plenty of firm favourites happening across the holidays including Bingo, Pool Kayaking, Rib Ride Charters, Prestige Gaming, Dance Classes, Family Forest Activities, live music much much more!

Just as highlighted above, Silver Bay owners are asked to book ahead for all of the activities that they wish to join across the Summer holidays. Like each and every holiday break, this can be done by visiting www.bookwhen.com/bayactivities
