Situated on the West coast of Anglesey, next to RAF Valley where Prince William was based, Rhosneigr (pronounced 'Ross-Ny-Guh') was a sleepy fishing village in the 19th Century, but was transformed by the Edwardians in the early 20th Century and became a highly popular holiday destination. The area continues to attract thousands of visitors each year, thanks to its stunning countryside and watersports.
Rhosneigr boasts award winning beaches which look over the tempestuous Irish Sea, and has fantastic views of Holy Island, Snowdonia and the distant Lleyn Peninsula as well as some of the best sunsets in the Country! It is still a thriving holiday resort and has a rich Maritime History. The varied landscape houses an impressive array of wildlife, such as the rare, endangered Roseate Tern and the Harbour Porpoise.
The Romance of the area was brought to life by a litle known Anglesey-born author called William David Owen who spent the latter part of his life living in Rhosneigr. Owen wrote a romantic novel entitled 'Madam Wen' about the legendary smuggler & highway-woman who was active in the region, and the publication of this book in 1925 would have brought him fame and fortune but sadly, he died barely two weeks after it was published.
'The Rhosneigr Romanticist', incorporating the first ever English translation of this story, is available from Amazon via links from this website. See our Publications section for more details.
Rhosneigr has a rich maritime history and our new book 'Rhosneigr ~ People & Places should be out by the end of Feb 2017. See more info on our publications page.
