Discover What Makes Anglesey So Desirable

Recent findings from property experts, Zoopla, have shown that Holyhead, a port town in Anglesey, is among the top ten places with the highest increase in house prices this year! With almost £10,000 being added to the sale price of homes in the area, it is clear that the recent investments in the town centre have worked well. Having improved the charm, why not come and see for yourself what is making the area so popular? We have many Wales holiday homes for sale, so start planning your next holiday, and you can see what makes Anglesey so special! With our parks along the North Wales coastline, your next holiday to one of our destinations such as Conwy or around the coastal towns of Towyn and Prestatyn, Anglesey would be the perfect escape for you when you’re looking for a day out a bit further afield! Anglesey, an island off the coast of northwest Wales, is a site of natural beauty. The island offers activities for all ages and there is the added benefit of lots of incredible beaches, making sure that you and your family will have an amazing holiday, no matter the weather! With the drive from Prestatyn taking a little over an hour, you and your family can take in the sights of rural North Wales, before making your way over the Menai Suspension Bridge overlooking the Menai Straight. Once over Angelsey’s iconic bridge, designed by Thomas Telford and opened in 1826, you and your family can take a stroll along the 125 mile Anglesey Coastal Path or venture underground to explore The Copper Kingdom. Tucked away at the top of Anglesey, The Copper Kingdom tells the tale of the copper mining industry that once took place at Amlwch Port. Families will love the re-creation of the underground mine, and children will enjoy making brass rubbings in the dedicated children’s area. Anglesey is also home to cultural sites, such as Beaumaris Castle. Built as part of Edward I’s campaign to take over Wales, the castle remains unfinished due to the English running out of money and supplies. Despite this, taking a look around Beaumaris Castle’s grounds allow you to imagine how grand the creation would have been, had it been completed. Built in 1295, the ruins of the World Heritage inscribed site also includes lots of activities to get children involved, making it the perfect place to spend a day! If you’re looking for something a little bit different to make the journey to the area worthwhile, why not take a trip on as Seacoast Safari around the island? For £9.95 per person, visitors can discover a shipwreck amongst other historical sites whilst your knowledgeable driver informs you about the local wildlife. Over the course of the 90-minute journey, children can try and spot puffins and the seals, whilst adults can learn more about the animals and their habitats. For those families wanting to experience a bit more adrenaline, Seacoast Safari’s also offer a RIB adventure ride. For £20, passengers will spend the next hour skimming the waves around Anglesey, whilst also getting a chance to take in the sights. When you’re tired of zooming across the seas, taking the trip into Holyhead will show you just why it’s becoming one of the most sought-after locations for house buyers. One of the busiest UK Irish ferry ports in the UK,the town is also full of history. The town centre was founded in 550AD and now offers visitors an expansive shopping experience, complete with a cinema and theatre. After you’ve watched the ferries cross over from Ireland, hopefully the charm of Holyhead will have you captured. On your next trip to North Wales, it’s definitely a place that you and your family should explore!   Image: Eric Jones
