Blackthorn Farm is close to Holyhead mountain, which is rich in minerals and was mined in years gone by. You can climb to the summit and back down to the café in about 2 hours depending on how quickly you walk, views on the way up and from the summit are breath taking. There are also many ancient rocks and ruins to explore, with 'standing stones' adjacent to Blackthorn Farm, and ancient 'hut circles' close by too. Nearby Trearddur Bay has some fine restaurants, a lovely sandy beach and is home to the local Sailing Club. The RSPB have a reserve at South Stack, where you can see puffins in the spring and get fabulous sunset 'photos of the lighthouse.
