Bodedern is a village and community in the west of Anglesey, Wales. At the 2001 census, it had a population of 1,074,[1] decreasing slightly to 1,051 at the 2011 census.[2] The village has a bilingual primary school, Ysgol Gynradd Bodedern, and secondary school, Ysgol Uwchradd Bodedern. The village's football team, Bodedern Athletic F.C. play in the Welsh Alliance League.[3] Bodedern is the closest village to the island's largest natural lake, Llyn Llywenan, 1 kilometre (0.6 mi) to the north. The parish church (St Edern's Church, Bodedern) dates from the 14th century and is a Grade II* listed building. The Valley Wetlands are the other side of the A55 about 2 miles from Bodedern.

Presaddfed Hall is a small grade II* listed country house which stands amongst woodlands to the north-east of the village at the southern tip of Llyn Llywenan. The main block was built in 1686 and is joined to an earlier block by a later block built in 1875. A walled garden lies to the east of the house [4] Once the seat of the Lewis family, several of whom served as High Sheriff of Anglesey, it is now a country hotel.[5][6]
