Plas Lligwy CL - Moelfre Anglesey

Moelfre
Isle of Anglesey
North Wales
LL72 8NH

This weekend we visited a small Caravan Club CL called Plas Lligwy near to Moelfre, Anglesey. Set on a farm, on high ground above the Lligwy Bay and its wide open beach, some half a mile in distance downhill. The site was quiet, secluded and comfortable. Basic facilities, EHU only and priced at the upper end at £15pn.

The Camp Site


We spent the day walking around the bay of Lligwy and Moelfre, the area is visually very pleasing, the coastal path is well defined. An enjoyable area to stroll. This part of the island has lots of historical points of interest, including the site of the sinking of the ship “Royal Charter” in 1859 in which over 450 lives were lost. The ship was only some 30 yards from the shore. A pretty horrendous, but fascinating story.

The Memorial to the Royal Charter


The walk took us through the coastal village of Moelfre, which has a nice feel to the place, lots of white washed cottages, with the dominant feature being the active RNLI Lifeboat House, which is open to the public and the nearby RNLI Museum. Outside the museum is a stunning statue to a local man and hero Dic Evans who for many years was the lifeboat Cox’n; well worth a visit.

Looking towards Lligwy Bay


Overall we enjoyed our visit, even with the strong north easterly wind that seem to be a constant presence on the site. Would we go to this area again, definitely, but probably locate ourselves on lower ground at a beach camp site, which we noted had full facilities at a reduced rate of £19!!.
