Trearddur Bay 3 miles.
The bustling town of Holyhead rests on the North West coast of the Isle of Anglesey, the largest town on the island and perhaps known best for being the main ferry port to Ireland. Steeped in history, the town boasts the remains of Roman town walls and forts, medieval burial chambers and stone village foundations. Explore the Breakwater Country Park, a former quarry, which offers designated walks through the grounds. The park is full of interesting wildlife, most notably the seals who visit the Holyhead coast, and outlines the amazing construction of the world's longest breakwater, some 1.8 miles, which today protects the harbour. Visit the colourful marina with its yachts and tall ships, or the town's maritime museum, with its tales of 100 shipwrecks in the vicinity. Day trips to Ireland can be enjoyed easily from here, with Dublin just 90 minutes away on the fast ferry. With spectacular cliff top walks over Holyhead Mountain, golden sandy beaches at the award winning Trearddur Bay and the Snowdonia National Park just a 20 minute drive away, this is a superb holiday location, at any time of the year.

Previous visitors' comments about Sherwood:
They had decorated with a Christmas tree and chocolates which was a lovely welcome. Generally the cottage felt very cosy and the underfloor heating was brilliant. The cottage was perfectly placed for visiting my parents, who live 5 minutes away, and very quiet. The beds were very comfortable.

All was very good. We were 4 of us and there was space enough for all in the cottage, more than expected.
