The Isle of Anglesey has plenty to offer every kind of holidaymaker this autumn season, from relaxing foodie weekend retreats, outdoor adventures to historic trips discovering the gems of this beautiful Welsh isle.

Hosting a range of luxury self-catered cottages, boutique hotels and local guesthouses, there is a wealth of unique accommodation to choose from on Anglesey not to mention a variety of eateries serving up the best of local cuisine.

What to do...

Get to grips with the outdoors and feel energised with an outdoor adventure. Join the Rib Ride crew for a 1 hour trip along the famous Menai Straits of Anglesey, take in the spectacular views, capture some of the Welsh wildlife and you can warm your cockles with a flask of hot chocolate in one of Anglesey's more tranquil bays.

Plas Newydd Country House

Set on the shores of the Menai Strait amidst breathtakingly beautiful scenery, this elegant house was redesigned by James Wyatt in the 18th century. The 1930s restyled interior is famous for its Rex Whistler association, containing his largest painting and exhibition.

Anglesey Golf Pass

Anglesey's 278 square miles of countryside accommodates seven beautiful golf courses. If you're not sure where the golfing should begin, invest in a Anglesey Golf Pass for the ultimate experience to play at Baron Hill, Anglesey Golf Club, Bull Bay, Henllys Hall and Holyhead.

Where to Stay...
