The Dingle, Anglesey

We are just back from spending a few days in Anglesey. Whilst we were there we visited The Dingle in Llangefni for a lovely short walk which I would like to share with you. The Dingle is a woodland nature reserve with a 1.5 mile circular walk which is suitable for buggies (we do not have a three wheel buggy or anything particularly suited to off-road walking and had no problems on this walk).

IMG_5595The river Cefni runs through the middle of the woodland with a wooden broadwalk running alongside it for walkers.

IMG_5574 There are various bridges across the river to a tarmac walk way on the other side of the river. Both paths meet up at each end to form a circular walk which is very accessible. The tarmac side does have some hilly parts but nothing too challenging for most families. The broadwalk side is completely flat. Both sides are unlikely to get muddy after a wet spell which is a big advantage for a buggy friendly walk. IMG_5590

Along the walk there a various sculptures carved from wood such as a giant dragon fly as well as benches where you could enjoy a picnic. IMG_5598

Proving you are never too young to get out and enjoy nature, our baby seemed to be looking round a lot and making her happy noises (when she wasn’t napping). Being in the woodland, surrounded by trees with the sun creeping through was probably very different to being inside or even the walks with have taken her in parks, towns etc.  IMG_5579 IMG_5586  Getting there – Leave the A55 at the exit for Llangefni and follow signs for the town centre. Once in the town centre follow the brown signs for The Dingle. There is a pay and display car park at the start of the walk which currently is 50p for 1 hour and 80p for two hours.

      I forgot to mention how well cared for it is. There was no rubbish any where. They had also closed off a small section during the day we were there (mid week) as they were doing some maintenance. Always nice to see places like this being looked after by the council and the users.

    What a lovely walk. We love walks through woods, and a river is always a bonus x

    What a beautiful woodland to explore, and the fact is has easy access for pushchairs is such a bonus. A perfect place for a picnic, and so clean, thanks for sharing with Country Kids.

      We love woodland walks but this is the first one since baby arrived. Not sure many of our local favorites will be practical without using the baby carrier.

    Looks lovely. I have been known to do some serious offroading with our very unsuitable buggy so it’s nice to find somewhere suitable.

      It really is lovely and buggy friendly. Most of our local favorite walks will require leaving the buggy at home and using a baby carrier.

    This is a great post, with lots of practical advice. I’d love it if you joined in with the Family Days Linky over at Mums do travel, if you’d like to : )
