Going To Fedw Fawr

Angelsey by the coast. July 2017

Fedw Fawr is a tiny car park  and a beach owned, like most of Angelsey, by the National Trust. It was the first place we stayed and ‘wild camped after we bought Sprinter Van in 2014. There is only room for one or two vans or a few cars. The views to the right are Puffin Island.

The steps down to the beach are steep and bracken covered bur quite easy to negotiate.The beach below is stoney and was empty.


This is the view leaving Penmon looking back towards the Penmon promontory.There is a mine of some sort – not sure what that is.This house is a great example of what you can do with a boring bungalow if you have money and imagination. The one on the right looks like an  outhouse belonging to the splendid new house. the views from this house over the Mneai Straights are amazing and hence the huge windows. 

This is a typical Welsh village name. The road was narrow ans overgrown so some fun was to be had with the overhanging branches.Yes this really is a road with a lawn in the middle! We remembered why we chose a medium wheelbase and a normal width van now. Otherwise we would not be going down this road.Overhanging branches scratch the paintwork so we have to remove them………………….Like so with a knife……………….Fedw Fawr entrance to the path down to the beach. It is a easy as falling off a log. There are bye laws on the back of the sign but who can read these I don’t know? The van had to be parked facing out to our exit point as when car park fills up there is no turning space. We had this beach all to ourselves on a Sunday in July.Amazing! It was almost like summer so a dip in the Irish Sea was required. The tide slowly creeps in…………… The view of the empty beach from the steps down. It is not possible to see the beach from the car park. A refreshing sparkling drink at the top when we got back to the van was really nice in the sunshine.
