Out and about in Llanddeusant
Whether your holiday cottage in Anglesey is located in Llanddeusant or you’re just out exploring the island and visiting for the day, this section should tell you all you need to know to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
Located just 10 miles north east of Holyhead, Llanddeusant is an idyllic linear village – a group of residences that follows a long line, in this case the A5025 road that runs past the village a few miles away – and is the perfect get away from it all place on the island.
Llanddeusant is home to Llynnon Mill, the only working windmill in Wales, a local attraction where you can follow the old mill trail and enjoy a traditional Welsh tea in the Llynnon tearoom.
My perfect day out in Llanddeusant
When you’re in the mood for getting away from it all, I recommend leisurely strolling to the windmill, buying some Llynon windmill flour and then enjoying a cream tea in the mill’s tearoom, then perhaps a brisk cycle or walk on the circular Nico trail, ending the day with drinks and deliciously locally produced food at the Black Lion Inn.
Places to eat and drink:
The Black Lion Inn, which is just outside the neighbouring village of Llanfathlu, is a fantastic pub that re-opened its doors in August 2012 after being sympathetically renovated having been derelict for many years. There’s a cosy bar and dining room in the original part of the building, and a modern extension with additional dining area to the rear from which you can see Llanddeusant village and the windmill.
The Lobster Pot restaurant, in Church Bay is of iconic fame to those in the know about fine dining on Anglesey. Family owned, with now the 3rd generation being involved, the restaurant serves, as the name suggests, delicious locally caught seafood as well as variety of other dishes. Please book in the summer months.
Places of interest:
Llynnon windmill – the only working windmill in Wales. Watch the miller at work, see the sails turning when the wind blows, visit the bakery and follow the Mill Trail.
Red Kite Feeding Station, which if you head through Llanddeusant towards Myddfai, you will see on the right, is a centre that provides bird lovers the opportunity to witness wild birds, including red kites and buzzard, feeding in their natural habitat.
Visitors may sit in the specially built hide only feet away from diving birds and observe them competing naturally for the meat provided by the feeding centre at regular times throughout the year.
Howell Water Mill, also known as Felin Selar is no longer open to the public but the building can still be seen in the village of Llanddeusant. There has been a mill on this site for over 600 years, it was renovated in the mid 1850’s and what remains today is from this 19th century period.
Neolithic burial chambers, which are located just on the outskirts of the village of Bodedern on an estate named Presaddfed. One of the two chambers was reputedly inhabited by a family in the 1700`s.
