Blackthorn Farm on the Isle of Anglesey offers the perfect setting if you are looking for peace and quiet. This site offers superb views and close proximity to the ferry terminal at Holyhead. Just a couple of miles from the A55 dual carriageway, the site is easy to find using the directions on the Blackthorn’s website and is also within a 30 minute (brisk) walk of the ferry terminal. This allows for easy day trips on foot to Dublin and was actually the purpose for our stay at Blackthorn. The combination these factors makes the site a good choice for either a pre ferry stop over or a longer stay holiday.

On site facilities at Blackthorn Farm

  • Showers and toilets, with music!
  • CDP
  • Wifi (FREE and fast)
  • Reception/shop selling ice creams and other provisions including beer and wine
  • Picnic area/tables
  • Grass or hard stand pitches and of course….
  • Spectacular views!
  • Lovely evening sunsets!

There is not a motorhome service point at this site, but there are plenty of fresh water taps for the all important “fill up!”

Near silent conditions can be enjoyed at night and this, coupled with the sea views, makes a stay at Blackthorn Farm one of the best we have had in the UK.


Noteworthy of a mention, breakfasts and packed lunches are available in the B&B alongside. Those feeling energetic will enjoy some lovely walks. Holyhead town centre is a couple of miles away, and of course walks towards the Stack. There’s also some lovely cycling available on quiet roads. Whilst the centre of Holyhead offers little in the way of retailing, there are some out-of-town parks with a Morrisons and ASDA.

Sadly, the site is not open all year round. There are some offers from time to time – we had details of a week in March for just £100.
