All about Aberffraw

Aberffraw is a small, quiet village on the west coast of Anglesey at the mouth of the gently flowing River Ffraw, renowned for its spectacular sand dunes and immense stretch of sandy beach.

The village itself sits on the site of a medieval ‘llys’ (princely court), which was home to the Royal House of Aberffraw from which Llywelyn Fawr or Llywelyn the Great, descended.

Llywelyn was the de facto ruler of all Wales for 40 years. There is no denying the historical importance of the House of Aberffraw with many local places and names still bearing reference to this era.

Today Aberffraw is a peaceful and scenic get-away-from-it-all village. Ideal for guests looking for a tranquil base to explore the Coastal path. It is a walker’s paradise with plenty of trails for all levels.

Follow the path down the estuary to catch a glimpse of local bird species and where the river meets the sea, you can take in the inspiring sea and mountain scenery, with Bardsey Island and the Llyn Peninsula beyond.

Head in the other direction and you may catch cattle grazing gently in the heathland, as you head over the impressive sand dune range to ‘Traeth Mawr’, which literally translates to ‘big’ or ‘great’ beach with its endless sand dunes, Traeth Mawr has been called the Sahara of Wales!

Aberffraw Village boasts a fantastic pub ‘Y Goron’ or ‘The Crown’, which serves hearty, home-cooked food. The village shop is on hand for all the essentials and you can sample the delicious cakes served at the Llys Llywelyn tea rooms. The bracing walks along the Anglesey Coastal Path will work up a healthy appetite so you won’t feel guilty about your home-cooked pub dinner or a cake or two!

The Church in the Sea or ‘St Cwyfan's’ church is another must-see during your trip to Aberffraw. Built in the 7th century, the church now stands on the islet of Cribinau separated from the mainland by years of coastal erosion.

Against the odds this beautiful little church stands proud and bravely on a rock, and is quite a sight to behold. Church services are held regularly in the summer months, with occasional weddings and christenings, all of course romantically dictated by the tides! The cove in which the church sits, is a gentle walk of about a mile from Aberffraw village.

If the village doesn’t offer you enough history, the nearby Neolithic burial chamber of Barclodiad y Gawres is a must-see, not just for the history and heritage but the surrounding walks and views are simply stunning.

Barclodiad y Gawres lies about four miles from Aberffraw, or a short drive of two miles will bring you to a parking spot from where it is a 5-10 minute, fairly level walk along a narrow path.

Further afield the larger village of Rhosneigr is four miles away by road or seven miles if you take the coast path – trust us, you won’t be disappointed. There is a daily, regular bus service for those who don’t want to walk back!

Whatever your plans for your Anglesey holiday, you will not fail to be charmed by the historic, proud and immensely scenic little Welsh gem that is Aberffraw.
