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).
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.
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. 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.
Whilst checking a couple of details for this post I discovered that Visit Anglesey have produced an educational pack for children which you can download here.
