“Very disappointing due to dog fowling and rubbish!”

The Dingle (Nant y Pandy) Nature Reserve
Ranked #2 of 13 things to do in Llangefni
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Having never posted a Trip advisor review before, I felt compelled to offer our experience after a very disappointing visit to the Dingle. After reading the many positive reviews about this nature reserve, my family and I decided to visit. The reserve is a lovely, part boardwalk stroll through woodland. It passes over streams and through lovely wooded glades. HOWEVER, the whole experience was completely spoilt by the amount of dog poo we had to try and avoid. It was everywhere we walked! In addition to this, there was rubbish strewn all over - plastic bottles, takeaway cartons etc. We passed many dog walkers, none of whom were carrying plastic bags or any sort of 'scooper' to clear up their dogs mess. The regulars who frequent this place quite obviously have no respect for the beautiful place it could be, or the many visitors to the area. It was described as a 'nature reserve' but the only wildlife we saw were some ducks and a rat! There was also lots of broken glass in the more grassy areas of the 'reserve' It was a shame to see what could be a lovely walk absolutely ruined by uncaring individuals, who quite clearly do not have any standards.

This is quite a pretty little place in the middle of Llangefni and very popular with dog walkers. You need to explore to find the prettier places but it can feel a little isolated if you're a female walking on your own.

After reading reviews on here we went. Never saw a king fisher, never saw a red squirrel. The walk is fine, a bit dark, dirty filthy water in the ponds. The worse part was trying to avoid the dog poo in the middle of the path....disgusting. Parking right next to it £1.

The nature area has had a lot of work done to it, and is a lovely, natural spot to visit, as well as the start of a walk in the Anglesey walk book. It can be reached by a very cheap car park by the church, and is usually fairly quiet and shady.

Lovely area to visit,rolling water and loads of wildlife/birds.Anglesey council have worked wonders with this area,great short walks from the middle of this market town,visit it while you can and enjoy the peace and tranquility before the railway opens up,which would ruin the area.
