Hidden in the rolliing country west of Pentraeth village, an area of glacial sand and gravel deposits, the wet valley bottoms at Gwenfro and Rhos y Gad farms support lime-rich fen. Although modified by drainage and in parts damaged by agricultural pollution  the site retains valuable wildlife, including narrow leaved marsh orchid and medicinal leech. There are two public footpaths crossing the area and the fields east of Rhos y Gad farmstead are registered as Common Land with open access - check access maps here
