Newborough Village

by S.P.

Share a thought?

Well, Wil perhaps you would like to write something along the lines that Newborough is a small village with a more than adequate amount of facilities to enable your visit to be a memorable one.

The village shop stocks a vast range of supplies. We have a chip shop with an excellent menu for when you've had a hard day's delightful enjoyment on Llanddwyn Beach and of course St Dwynwen's wonderfully mystical island.

We have a post office, numerous camping sites, the White Lion Hotel, which is a quaint public house where the warmest of welcomes awaits all who wish to lay their burdens to one side for a while.

Like you,all us Anglesey people are immensely proud of our heritage and many of us rely on the seasonal visitors to our beautiful island.

Of course there are other villages on the way to Rhosneigr that you haven't yet mentioned.

There's Malltraeth with its beautiful coastal walk along the Cob and through the Newborough Forest. Here, visitors will discover two character pubs that enjoy the footfall of visitors to our Island and yet another chip shop, with its engaging architecture.

Then there is Berffro as we call Aberffraw with its Llys Llywelyn Tea Rooms.

Everyone knows Rhosneigr is a small village that really comes to life in the Summer when visitors come to spend their hard-earned money in pursuit of escape, adventure and beach delights. Then in Winter the village returns to a quiet almost ghost town.

When you mention a beautiful place like Newborough on your website, it would
do wonders to mention that you don't need to travel as far as Rhosneigr for head ache tablets or a stamp, food or drink or somewhere to stay.

Why? Well newborough has plenty to offer all of the most welcome visitors to the beautiful Isle of Anglesey.


Dear S.P.

Thank you very much for getting in touch and filling in the blanks in my website. Your passion for the village is clear and also your concern that the facilities in the area are made known to visitors.

Writing websites is a fulfilling but demanding task and it takes time and effort to gather all information to hand about Anglesey, so I am deeply grateful to you from being in touch with me to bring us all bang up to date.

I am in total agreement with you about the shop in Newborough, because it is one I use myself.

It is a one-stop shop for anything that villagers want and a perfect shopping place for those staying in the area, whether for a day or, hopefully, longer.

I'll re-jig the Newborough Facilities page in a few days and hope that it meets with your satisfaction.

I'll also hand you a little task - with your kind understanding - keep me briefed about what's going on with the White Lion.

Good luck to you and please help me to share the good news about Newborough, or Niwbwrch as you and I call it.

Take care and please accept my apologies for the inevitable gaps and I offer you my sincere thanks. Given enough time all things are possible.

Sounds like a book well worth reading.

I will be looking to buy a copy as soon as I can before the Christmas holidays are over and I still have time to read.

Thank you

A new book about Rhosyr - hot off the press
by: Anonymous

Just informing people who visit the Llys Rhosyr Archaeological Site just beyond St Peter's Church that there is now a history of Rhosyr available. Just released, it is written by local historian and Archivist Mary Aris, and is titled "Rhosyr, its history and topography in the Age of the Welsh Princes". Rhosyr was the name of the lost village that existed centuries before Newborough was founded. After a century of disasters it decayed and disappeared leaving no trace. The new book is a fascinating search for the site of this deserted medieval village. It also reconstructs the medieval landscape that existed in the time of the Princes of Gwynedd.

reply to pub being closed
by: sam pritchard

In response to anonymous,

Very sorry that we were closed on the afternoon you called at 1.30 pm.

The funeral of a highly respected member of the community took place the day before and we were busier than normal.

We take pride in what we do and were late opening as we went to bed without tidying up and at the time you called were restocking the bar and hoovering.

Should you chose to visit the area in the future please do call and see us and make yourself known. A warm welcome awaits you with a complimentary drink by way of an apology.

Kind regards,
Sam (owner)

ps we are dog friendly just incase you want to bring one with you

White Lion Public House
by: Alyson

As of the 8th July the White Lion pub is now owned by myself and my husband, Sam.

It is now a Free House and we would like to extend a warm welcome to all visitors and locals alike.

We are presently refurbishing and remain open during the work.

We hope to see new faces and old in the coming months.


Dear Alyson and Sam

Congratulations. I wish you enormous success with your venture.

The White Lion is located near one of Anglesey's astonishingly beautiful beaches at Llanddwyn and Llanddwyn Island.

It must be one of the least exploited Public Houses on the whole of Anglesey that has been begging for courage and commitment.

It could become an absolute gem, and not a hidden gem.

When you've got it just right - as you want it, please send me some photos and I'll create a page entirely for you and post it on my blog.

Good luck to you.
