Pentraeth is a typical Anglesey village, on the banks of the Afon Nodwydd (Needle River). It takes its name from the Welsh, meaning 'at the head of the sands' and is located near Traeth Coch (Red Wharf Bay) with its award winning beach, seaside pubs and restaurants. Visitors enjoy the many scenic walks by coast and farmland and through Pentraeth Forest. Pentraeth is steeped in poetry and history. Here, in 1170, 'the Poet Prince' Hywel ap Owain Gwynedd was killed in battle. His memorial can be seen at the beach where a small harbour once exported the rare Anglesey marble, quarried south of the inlet. Pentraeth was visited by Charles Dickens whilst he worked as a journalist for The Times newspaper. Social historians will want to see Ysgoldy - a schoolhouse founded for the poor in 1719 by educationalist Dr John Jones and romantics will enjoy the story of 'Three Leaps' stones, some say this is where an C8th warrior effectively invented the triple jump - others, that it is where C13th poet Einion ap Gwalchmai competed for the affections of his wife-to-be by leaping further than his rivals. Whatever the truth - donít try and copy their feats !
