“Anglesey is beautiful, Eurwyn and Gillian will help you discover it.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2012

We had a couple of weeks holiday in the calendar, the second week already committed to visiting family in Dublin. We'd talked about walking in Wales, so Anglesey was the obvious choice. Start at, wherever and finish in Holyhead to catch the ferry.

An internet search for someone who would book our accommodation and move our baggage - similar to companies we've used in Scotland and Ireland - found Eurwyn and Gillian.

They organised everything, found excellent accommodation and answered all our email queries with uncanny speed, even at weekends.

When we arrived at Bangor railway station, Eurwyn was there to meet us and take us to our starting point. He was friendly, enthusiastic and a mine of information about places of interest, local history, the terrain and places to eat and drink.

We were provided with detailed notes for each day's walk - including high tide times and alternative routes if this was going to be a problem. Quick reference maps and OS 1:25000 maps were also included. Most of the time we didn't need them as the route is so well signposted but there were a couple of occasions where signs were hidden or missing or sheep tracks sought to lead us astray, when the notes and maps were invaluable. Eurwyn and Gillian have put a lot of thought, time and effort into making everything work, and it does.

Eurwyn makes you feel welcome and relaxed from the word go. This felt more like a community than a business as Eurwyn has a friendly relationship with all the accommodation providers.

I found their enthusiasm for the Welsh language heartening. Languages are being lost at an alarming rate and with them a depth of knowledge and beauty we only learn to regret much too late.

Anglesey is a beautiful place, come and see for yourself and let Eurwyn and Gillian smooth the way for you.

Unfortunately we didn't get to meet Gillian. Next time!

“Anglesey Walking Holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2012

My family said that at my advanced age I should not be walking on my own! I decided to walk the Coastal Path of Anglesey alone to prove them wrong and I then had the great good fortune to book the holiday with Eurwyn and Gillian Williams at 'Anglesey Walking Holidays'.
They tailored the holiday to suit my needs and to fit in with my requested dates. The accommodation that they booked was very good indeed and all the pickups were acomplished without a hitch. The daily supplied 'route guidance' was easy to follow and very accurate.
I would have no hesitation in advising anyone to walk the Anglesey Coastal Path as it is breathtakingly beautiful. I would also not hesitate in recomending the excellent Eurwyn and Gillian to organise the visit.

“Llanbadrig”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2012

I wonder why Llanbadrig is not mentioned as a separate attraction on tripadvisor, But trust me it is one of the most beautiful place I have ever seen in my life. The view from St patrick church is breathtaking. If you are ever around, dont miss it.

“Anglesey Walking Holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2012

Our 'Tonteg WI & husbands' group of 16 from South Wales returned to the picturesque island of Anglesey to continue our walk around the coast.
Anglesey Walking Holidays again organised our trip -booking excellent accommodation & picking us up & dropping off at the railway station or airport.
Over the 5 days, Eurwyn- always prompt & friendly- took us to the start of the walks giving us directions and maps (+ a packed lunch prepared by Gillian) and returned for us after a telephone call. Eurwyn previously discussed the length and type of walk to suit our group.
They even organised a sightseeing trip on a day of inclement weather.
We rate this company as 'first class'.

“"Another really good value, enjoyable weekend"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2012

This year was our second walking weekend organised by Gillian and Eurwyn.
Once again, nothing was too much trouble. We are a group of women aged 40+ and we are not all experienced walkers, so we were very grateful for all the support. The weather on the Sunday was supposed to be atrocious and they were happy to arrange alternative plans to our walking at short notice. i.e. visits to other attractions near to or in Anglesey. In the end we managed a short walk on the Sunday without being swept away by storms and still manage a visit to the old gaol house in Beaumaris.
Gillian and Eurwyn are always really helpful, very friendly and enthusiastic.They provide lots of useful information, with an easy to follow walking guide, maps and tourism advice on restaurants and other attractions to visit en route. The walking is always tailored to our needs. It is reassuring to know that we can phone at any time of the day along the route to arrange a pick up should we decide to stop early or even walk a bit further than planned.
The packed lunch was very good value and had a varied choice of sandwich fillings.
We will definately be back again next year.
