Rhoscolyn, Anglesey
Picture of Rhoscolyn
Rhoscolyn can be found 5 miles south of Holyhead on the Isle of Anglesey, North Wales. In actual fact, Rhoscolyn is not on the Isle, but instead is situated on Holy Island, a small piece of land separated from Anglesey by a short stretch of water. A quiet village with a beautiful beach and plenty of history, Rhoscolyn makes an interesting place to visit. The Rhoscolyn Burial Chamber can be found near Borthwen Beach in Rhoscolyn, and attracts many visitors each year for its striking stones and its peaceful location, though some believe this is one man's folly rather than a 4000 year old communal burial chamber. St Gwenfaen's Church, situated on the edge of the village, was established in 630 AD and although the original building was burnt to the ground during the 15th century, the present building was built in stone during the 1870s and today the church is a peaceful yet interesting place to visit. St Gwenfaen's Holy Well is located near to the shore of Rhoscolyn and the water was once used to cure mental disorders, but you would have to be mad to take the waters these days as it is often contaminated by sheep droppings. But saying that, it is an atmospheric ancient site and well worth visiting as the sun sets in the west. Rhoscolyn Beach cannot be missed, with glorious sands protected by rocky headlands, offering fantastic seaside views. The beach is accessed via a narrow winding lane, in other words a typical Anglesey country road. As well as all these attractions, you can also walk the Anglesey coastal path which snakes its way through Rhoscolyn, and should you be visiting in October don't miss the Anglesey Oyster Festival held in the nearby village of Trearddur Bay. And if you fancy something to eat, head to The White Eagle, an excellent pub close to Rhoscolyn beach, which caters for walkers and serves delicious meals and award-winning ales!
