If you like walking it's great but sometimes they have problems with card payments in the cafe. The views are great and there is plenty to do for the family.

Lovely meal in the cafe and friendly staff. Beautiful walks up Holyhead mountain and a nice walk up to the park on a country lane or parking at the top (minimal charge). Looking forward to a walk over the mountain this summer.

Absolutely. There are a few routes to walk along some easy going and some a bit more difficult but ideal for all ages. There are also some open areas where dogs can run free but please clear up any mess the dogs drop 😊
