Pentre Berw is a small village located on the island of Anglesey. It lies two and a half miles south of Llangefni.

A major road, the A5, runs through the village as does the disused Anglesey Central Railway. Indeed, the village's most famous hotel The Holland Arms even had a station named after it. The village is located at the top of a gentle slope on the eastern edge of the Malltraeth Marshes. Therefore, a good view of the marshes and also of the River Cefni can taken in from parts of the village.

Plas Berw, a country house which dates back from the early 17th century, is near the village. It also has formal gardens and a deer park. The grounds cover some 8½ acres and it is a Grade II listed building.[1] Llanfihangel Ysceifiog (St Michael's church), although ruined, is a good example of a traditional Welsh church. It is situated just north of the village.[2]
