General Info for Walkers and Cyclists

Y Stabl is set within the Anglesey Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), and is a short walk to the beaches, the Anglesey Coastal Path, and local pub The White Eagle. This makes Y Stabl ideally placed as a base for some great walking or cycling, or just a stroll on the headland.

Stable new roofGuests of Y Stabl have exclusive use of the lockable stone outhouse (stable) in front of the cottage to keep bikes and sports/ walking clothes & equipment etc secure, to clean muddy boots/ bikes, and to use as overnight drying space. The outhouse is secured by a padlocked full-height door. The outhouse has a multi-valve bike pump for guests' use.

Note on Access to Silver Bay

Rhoscolyn coastal walkThe Silver Bay Holiday Village is also a short walk from Y Stabl. However please note that although Silver Bay is a public beach, the Silver Bay Holiday Village is private, and does not have a public right of way through it. Request for access through the Silver Bay Holiday Village to the beach for non-residents of the site will be refused.  Public access to this beach is via the Coastal Path - either along the coast from Rhoscolyn Beach (Borthwen), or directly from Ty Lon via Bryn-Y-Bar.

Local Walking

Rhoscolyn coastal walkAnglesey Coastal PathWalking around the countryside and the coastline around Anglesey, Holy Island and Rhoscolyn is very refreshing! The Anglesey Coastal Path (a 125-mile walking route around the island) comes within 100 metres of Y Stabl, and passes through Rhoscolyn's beaches. There are also a number of well-defined circular walks around Rhoscolyn that can start and finish at Y Stabl.

Local Geology

Rhoscolyn coastal geology sitesGeomon - Anglesey's GeoparkRhoscolyn is famed for its geological features, especially the Rhoscolyn anticline. The geology around Anglesey - and in particular at the Rhoscolyn anticline and around South Stack in Holyhead - has been much studied, and is a favourite destination for geology students. The exposed and folded precambrian rocks of the Rhoscolyn anticline are only a short walk (less than 1km) from Y Stabl. There are a number of other geological points of interest around Rhoscolyn and Holyhead; these are detailed in the following books (which we have at Y Stabl for guests to read, and are also for sale in some local shops and at The Ucheldre in Holyhead):

  • Precambrian Rocks of the Rhoscolyn Anticline (Margaret Wood 2004, Seabury Salmon & Associates)
  • Anglesey Geology - A Field Guide (Jack Treagus 2008, Seabury Salmon & Associates)
