Newborough is a peaceful village in the southwest corner of the Isle of Anglesey, off the coast of North Wales. It is home to a Blue Flag sandy beach, a 2,000-acre woodland, and one of Britain’s largest areas of sand dunes. There is a cosy pub on Old Chapel Street, the White Lion, serving good food and a variety of local ales. There is also a small shop selling essentials for a day by the sea, a post office and a popular fish and chips takeaway – all a leisurely stroll from holiday cottages in Newborough. Just outside the village, the Marram Grass is an excellent restaurant with a reputation for serving delicious food prepared with fresh, seasonal ingredients from the surrounding coast and countryside. Almost next door, the intricately decorated Anglesey Model Village is also a must on self-catering holidays in Anglesey, as is the Anglesey Transport and Agriculture Museum, the largest museum of its kind in Wales.
