May-Half-Term-Family-Activities-and-Attractions-on-Anglesey-1280x855.jpg

One of the best things about Anglesey is that the fun never ends on our island. Day in, day out, there are a range of things to do that will put a smile on everyone’s face. And May half-term is the perfect time to explore with all the family.

With the weather warming up, and everyone’s spirits lifting, holidaying on Anglesey encompasses everything that’s special about family life, and it provides the perfect backdrop to many happy memories.

If you fancy doing something a little different on your next break to our stunning island, explore below. You’ll find a rundown of perfect May half-term activities.

Pili Palas Nature World

If you love wildlife, and want to introduce your little ones to an attraction that’s both educational and entertaining, then Pili Palas is the perfect spot.

Home to Anglesey’s most famous butterfly centre, the whole family can get up close and personal with the beautiful, winged creatures – as well as many more creatures such as birds, snakes, and other exotic species.

If the weather is good, May half-term can also be the ideal time to head out on their nature trail where you’ll also come across their friendly alpacas! There’s also a cafe on site to fill your boots, alongside a conservatory where you can eat your sandwiches and watch the meerkats frolic.

Prices start from £7.25 for children up to the age of 16, and under threes go free!

Woodland Adventures at Silver Bay

If your little ones adore foraging and spending time exploring and discovering new things in the beautiful outdoors, then why not book them onto our Woodland Adventures activity?

Taking place on Thursday the 1st of June and Saturday the 3rd of June, it’s a great opportunity to train them up on outdoor survival, and they’ll make lots of Silver Bay friends along the way.

All you need to do to enrol your children is to call Silver Bay on 01407 862 049 and then put together a packed lunch to keep their energy levels up! This is a child-only event, so it will also give you some time to relax with your partner whilst the little ones are entertained and taken care of.

Garden Tours at Plas Newydd

We can’t guarantee beautiful weather during the May half-term, but what we can guarantee is a jolly good time, and a magnificent place to spend an educational afternoon is at Plas Newydd Country House and Gardens.

This majestic National Trust property is a favourite for tourists to visit, and on the 1st of June, they will be hosting Garden Tours: An Edible Garden.

Bring the family as they whisk you away on a tour of what plants are safe to eat, and encourage your little ones to broaden their culinary horizons and get some fresh air.

The event starts at 2 pm, and there’s also the historic country house to explore if the weather isn’t on your side.

Anglesey Riding Centre

If you really fancy pushing the boundaries and doing something out of the ordinary during the May half-term, then the Anglesey Riding Centre is a great spot to visit. They have a wide range of horse riding activities available, each suitable for all level of horse riding ability from beginners through to experts.

Lead Rein is one of the popular packages they offer, and this comes with a half hour ride for youngsters and is best for children under 7. They will be led along their tracks by horse riding experts, and they’ll also be on ponies as opposed to full grown horses, providing the perfect first horse experience.

There are also 1 hour rides available for those over the age of seven and suitable for kids and adults. This package is ideal for families, and there are a range of ride opportunities available from lead rides to trotting, cantering and galloping if you’re skilled enough!

Prices come in at £13 for the half hour lead rein and £23 for the hour long session. Take a look here for more information.

Beach Mudder

Returning for the second year on the run, we’re heading down to Silver Bay beach and setting up our obstacle course. Fun for all the family, Beach Mudder will draw out your competitive side and ensure you’re working together seamlessly as a team!

If you fancy challenging yourself whilst enjoying an afternoon against the backdrop of the beautiful ocean and sand, enrol your family by calling us at reception on 01407 860 860. We promise you won’t regret an afternoon bonding with both family and Silver Bay friends whilst working up a sweat.

The sun has finally got his hat on, and with the May half-term quickly making its way towards us, we’ve officially launched the Silver Bay Spring Newsletter!

Jam-packed with fun and fantastic activities for all the family, there’s a tangible sense of excitement in the air as we prepare for the return of our lovely homeowners and their loved ones.

So, to make sure your calendar is chock-a-block with recreation and merry-making, take a look below.

Saving The Honey Bees

This year, we’re focusing on helping out a creature that’s been a part of the English lifestyle for as long as we can remember – the honey bee.

What many don’t realise is that this majestic being has a population that is vastly dwindling, so we’ve decided to make Silver Bay a Honey Bee Friendly Park!

Expert beekeeper, Johnathan Garratt, will be visiting over the summer months to hold important educational bee sessions with the children, and they’ll even have the chance to get up close and personal with the fuzzy, buzzy creatures. There will also be lots of bee-themed activities including candle creation with beeswax and a chance to help us build our very own Bee Hotel!

Best of all, we’ll be welcoming 20,000 new residents this summer in the form of our fuzzy friends! The protection and encouragement of the honey bees will be part of our prestigious David Bellamy award this year. Two hives are being installed closely followed by two bee colonies, so make sure you keep an eye out.

Don’t miss it… because It’ll BEE fantastic!

Welcoming Karan, our new pastry chef

We know how much our lodge owners love something sweet, and to help elevate our stunning Deck House menu to the next level, we’ve welcome talented pastry chef, Karan, to the team.

Originally from London, Karan loves baking and making sweets such as honeycomb and marshmallow, and we can’t wait to see what she brings to the table!

We’ve also got a brand new kid’s pudding menu, so keep your eyes peeled for it when you’re next dining with us.

The Chill Out Zone is here!

 Silver Bay Chill Out Zone anglesey north wales

It’s very important to us to listen to our owners’ feedback and act on your wishes – which is why we’re proud to announce that we’ve launched a brand new Chill Out Zone for teens!

Complete with a pool table, television, Wii, wifi, games and comfy bean bags, it’s a space attached to the Deck House where they can kick back and relax – and one where you can rest assured that your children are close by and safe.

The Chill Out Zone also welcomes children under 12 up until 9 pm, as long as they’re supervised by someone in the Deck House.

Easter Fund Raising

You’re a generous lot, and we’re pleased to announce that the Easter raffle and quiz raised £205 pounds for Wales Air Ambulance! Thank you to everyone who donated and took part – and we’d like to give a shout out to Resting Beach Face, who were our quiz champions.

We’d also like to take a moment to highlight the fantastic charity work our team members have done too. Heidi, Will, Toni and Sue all completed a 5k race course and raised £273 for the Stroke Association. Congratulations, everyone!

The Spring Activity Schedule

If you’re a regular Silver Bay holiday-maker, you’ll know that we’re always doing our best to host lots of fun recreational activities for both children and adults. This May, there’s lots on including some brand new activities such as leaf mobiles, nail painting and tattoos, and even frisbee golf.

In the pool, we’ll be hosting a range of pastimes from adult swims to water polo and snorkelling, so make sure you pack your swimming gear!

The studio and gym have an action-packed schedule if you fancy working up a sweat. There’ll be the return of supervised activities and gym, as well as spinning, circuit training, pilates, and metafit.

Finally, our Busy Bayers activities are back with a bang! This May your little ones can experience arts and crafts, paper mache modelling, clay modelling, coasteering, woodland activities, salt dough making and much, much more. We’re even celebrating the return of the fabulous Beach Mudder on Sunday the 28th of May at 3 pm!

With warm beach weather approaching (we even had a mini heatwave over Easter!) and longer days just around the corner, summer is on the way here at Silver Bay Holiday Village.

Our calendar is jam-packed full with events that you and your loved ones won’t want to miss. And as well as making sure Silver Bayers have plenty to do, we’re also going to be digging deep for charity.

For a full run down, take a look below and pop these all important dates into your summer calendar of fun!

 

18th June – Snowdon Sunrise Charity Walk

We always take great pride in doing our bit for local charities, which is why we’ve decided to get the Silver Bay team together and embark on the Snowdon Sunrise Charity Walk 2017.

Taking place on the 18th of June, all funds raised will go towards the all-important Wales Air Ambulances. And best of all, you can join us too! Just make sure you book via Breese Adventures.

The Wales Air Ambulance team will be trekking along with us, and we’ll be walking between 1am and 9am under the guide of the Anglesey moon, led by headtorch lights! It’s a magical walk and an experience that you’ll never forget. We hope to see you there!

If you can’t participate, but would like to donate, simply visit the GoFundMe page here.

 

3rd and 4th June – Menai Raft Race

As we’re an island, there are always lots of exciting water-based activities going on. From boat voyages to adrenaline-pumping sailing, if you’re a watersports enthusiast, you’ll love Anglesey.

This year, we’ve decided to get involved with local water sports activities ourselves, and for the first time ever will be taking part in the Menai Raft Race! This annual event is an Anglesey classic, and on the 3rd and 4th of June our Grounds Maintenance Team will be heading out on the water and racing locals who have endeavoured to build their best rafts!

If you’re interested in Raft Silver Bay, like our page on Facebook where you’ll find a collection of upcoming images full of all the latest updates. And best of all, this event also raises a lot of money for local causes – which makes the Menai Raft Race one of the most important events in the Anglesey calendar.

 

Summer 2017 – Date TBC – Guinness World Record Attempt

summer silver bay guinness world record

This summer we’ll be hoping to make Silver Bay a record-breaking holiday park – and we need your help! From gathering as many superheroes as we can on the beach at one time, to building the world’s highest stack of coins on a holiday park, we want to know which event you’d like to do the most – and we need your votes on social media.

We’re also looking for even more special ideas, so if you have something that you’d like to put on the table, perhaps the most amount of people snorkelling in wigs at once, or maybe the largest amount of sandcastles shaped like Disney characters on one beach, let us know right away on Facebook.  

Our Guinness World Record Attempt is an event that we can’t wait to launch this summer when we welcome everyone back for six weeks of sun, fun and excitement. We’ll be posting more details soon about the attempt and when it will be taking place. Make sure you check back so that you don’t miss out!

Things To Do On Anglesey With A Dog

There’s nothing we enjoy more than introducing more extraordinary properties to our breathtaking holiday park, which is why we’re proud to present the second article in our Luxury Lodge Spotlight, this time focusing on The Vista.

This ingenious piece of innovative architecture is one that not only provides a stunning sanctuary away from everyday life, it also offers up a tangible luxury that means you won’t want to leave. With the Vista you can even stargaze from your own bedroom.

So what are you waiting for? Step inside…

Living Space

A vista is defined as ‘a pleasing view’, and that’s precisely what this holiday home provides. Filled with an abundance of light that transposes into an airy feel, this spacious property has magnificent skylights installed, providing avenues of light no matter where you are.

Distressed wooden furniture features throughout the Vista, offering dining and coffee table focal points to be proud of. Both are places of beauty that are hungering for a family to gather around with a tasty dinner or a family movie.

The interior decorations truly are inspired, and the Vista’s living space benefits from tranquil, olive coloured walls matched alongside the light, wooden floors – which give this holiday home a true, bespoke quality.

It’s not hard to see why families fall for this home as soon as they lay eyes on it.

         

 

Kitchen & Dining

The Vista is famous for its open-plan living experience, providing a hub for friends and loved ones to gather for activities in the heart of their holiday home.

Complete with all the modern amenities, from cooker to American-style fridge, freezer, the Vista kitchen is nothing short of outstanding. Spotlights under the luxurious white kitchen cupboards deliver a modern ambiance while still setting a comfortable mood, and the centre kitchen island is the ideal place to cook together as a family unit.

The dining space of this luxury holiday lodge is situated down a step into the lower part of the open living space. The distressed oak offers a unique dining experience – a place that is relaxing and impression – and one where many happy memories will be made in the coming years.

The Vista’s interior is simply waiting for a family just like yours to inject love and companionship.

         

Bedrooms

For a holiday home to be truly exquisite and luxurious, the sleeping quarters need also provide a comfortable yet opulent place to rest your head – and the Vista does not disappoint.

Available with up to three bedrooms, the master bedroom comes with a magnificent ensuite, allowing the central bathroom to be exclusively for the children and visitors. Other bedrooms in the property come with two beds, yielding enough room for a family of four, five or six to holiday on the glorious Anglesey coast.

The spotlights and skylights that are favoured in the living space also appear in the bedrooms, allowing the property to flow. Distressed wooden features are also situated in the bedrooms, with the accent look appearing on bedside tables and cupboards – and storage space is in abundance for those families with lots of personal treasures.

         

Bathrooms

We’ve already touched upon the bathrooms, but it’s hard not to when they’re so breathtakingly beautiful.

The ensuite in the Vista lodge features a state-of-the-art toilet, sink and a curved shower cubicle – perfect for washing the sand out of your hair after visiting Silver Bay Beach. The main bathroom also boasts the same modern bathroom staples, and both are decorated in a beautiful, harmonising greys that add a sense of calm that ebbs and flows around the property.

When the children go to bed, treat yourself to a luxurious spa experience in the comfort of your own lodge.

If the Vista sounds like it could be the holiday home you’ve been dreaming of, you’re in luck. We’re offering the chance for owners to purchase a BRAND NEW Vista property – all you have to do is call on 01407 860 860 if you’d like to find out more.

You can stop dreaming of escaping to your bespoke holiday home here at Silver Bay because Easter is almost upon us!

We’ve got an action-packed schedule adorned with fun, laughter and excitement – and it’s the perfect resource for planning your break at Silver Bay.

Below we’ve gone through the schedule day by day so that you won’t miss a thing. And don’t forget, we’ve got a brand new Chill Out Zone opening in The Deck House.

It’s a win-win for everyone!

Saturday 1st – Sunday 9th April

Easter is off to a flying start as we begin our first week of activities!

Don’t miss out on our Egg Box Daffodils creation session between 12:30 – 1:30pm, or our Easter Rice Crispy Cake baking activity at 2:30pm on Saturday the 1st of April! Get creative with the humble egg box and then go wild with rice crispies and chocolate to make a true, Easter treat.

On Sunday, we’ll be launching a relaxing adult swim from 09:30-10:30am, so make sure you pop down to get in a few laps before the little ones hit the pool. We’ll also have a spinning class between 11:00 and 11:30am for 14+ to get your heart racing and your body working super hard!

Monday the 3rd is another busy day. Why not head to the gym with the children between 09:30-10:30am where they can partake in some supervised activities? After that, there are plenty of arts and crafts at 12:30pm, as well as seed sowing and pot decorating at 5pm for those with green fingers.

Head into Tuesday by learning to save a life with our Life-Saving/Personal Survival skills in the pool for 8 years+ with our session running between 11:00 to 1:00pm After that, the children can create arty Easter cards (5pm) or spend a bit of time learning how to cook on a campfire at 2:30pm.

Wednesday the 5th of April will see Spinning classes return (11:00am) as well as a Legs, Bums and Tums session (6pm) for anyone aged 14+.

Friday the 7th of April and Saturday the 8th are full to the top with activities for all ages. Our adult only swim returns at 9:30am, and the children will be spoilt for choice in the afternoon as they wile away the afternoon creating dream catchers (12:30pm), partaking in woodland activities (2:30pm) and then rounding the excitement off with a movie starting at 5:30pm.

Sunday provides a break for Busy Bayers, but there’s still plenty to do on site. Spend the day by the beach or in the pool. We’ll be hosting our supervised activities (09:30am) and spinning sessions in the gym (11:00am) too!

 

Monday 10th – Sunday 16th April

As Monday the 10th roles around, and Easter gets even closer, it looks as though it’s going to be an exciting week. Why not head to the gym for a cardio circuit session to sweat out all those toxins from the weekend at 11am? Or perhaps your children might want to work up a sweat themselves with one of our exciting dance sessions from 1pm?

Tuesday will be an important day for water lovers as we host our Life Saving session in the pool between 11:00 and 1:00pm. We’ll also be offering the chance for children under 6 to create adorable Easter bonnets (11:00am)  which will certainly be worth a picture or two for the family album!

Wednesday the 12th of April is also a calendar highlight. We’ll be hosting our Open Golf & Target Games for those inclined to enjoy a bit of putting at 1:00pm. We’ll also be painting our paper mache designs (5:00pm) with the little ones and creating Easter baskets (12:30) – perfect for collecting lots of chocolatey eggs on Easter Sunday.

If you love water, you’ll adore Thursday’s activities. Come and join us as we take to the pool and host a scuba diving experience for those aged 8-13yrs + between 1:00 and 2:00pm, and 14yrs + between 2:00 and 3:00pm.

On Easter Sunday itself, there’s a chance for the adults to work off the chocolate eggs with an adult only swim between 09:30 and 10:30am. There’ll also be a spinning class where you can earn that gluttonous roast dinner! The Deck House will also be hosting a delightful Easter Sunday roast if you fancy popping in and filling your boots. Call us on 01407 860 860 to reserve your spot and avoid disappointment.

 

Monday 17th – Friday 21st April

Easter Monday is the perfect chance to catch up with any activities you’ve missed earlier in the week. Our cardio circuit (11:00am) and supervised gym sessions (3:00pm)  are back, and so are our dance (1:00pm) and bird feeder making activities (5:00pm) for the children.

Don’t head home on Tuesday the 18th, instead spend some time taking part in our metafit studio gym session (11:00am). Or if sweating over cardio isn’t your thing, then why not clear your mind and stretch those muscles with a pilates session at 6pm?

On Wednesday we’re heading back down under the water for an exciting scuba lesson (1:00pm), follow this with legs, bums and tums (6pm) in the studio. For the children, we’ll be taking the woods for some woodland activities (2:30pm), followed closely by more arts and crafts than you can shake a stick at starting at 5pm!

Thursday is the 20th of April, and sadly the Easter holidays will be winding down. However, don’t fear, we’re still here to keep you topped up with fun! We’ll be hosting Orienteering for the children between 1:00 and 2:00pm in the gym studio, and then it’s time to try your hand at salt dough modelling (12:30pm) or create something scrumptious during our baking activity between 2:30 and 4:30pm. Round it all off with seed bomb making (5:00pm) as we make it our aim to fill our site with awe-inspiring plants.

Friday the 21st of April is our final day of activities. Our adult only swim is on again between 09:30 and 10:30am, followed by kayaking between 1:00 and 2:00pm for those aged 7-11yrs.

Excellent Easter Activities to Enjoy on Anglesey

It’s Official – Spring Has Sprung! Explore Our New Seasonal Menu At The Deck House

The Top 5 Tours of Anglesey


easter-on-anglesey-silver-bay-holiday-village-1280x853.jpg

As we wave goodbye to winter, there’s a sense of optimism in the air as spring is on the horizon. Brightly-coloured daffodils are swaying in a warm breeze, bringing happiness to our gardens, and fluffy baby animals are taking their first steps into the world.

And with this magical time of year comes one very special holiday that young and old alike can enjoy – Easter. In Wales there are many magical traditions including Anglesey egg clapping, which would see little ones heading from farms and asking for eggs by beating percussion instruments and singing songs – a delightful sight indeed!

From indulging in creamy chocolate eggs to sitting down together as one big family for a tasty roast dinner, Easter is one of our favourite times of year. And best of all, there are an array of eggcellent activities (see what we did there…) taking place across Anglesey. Fancy hunting for chocolate eggs? Or perhaps you’d like to get involved with some Easter crafts? Below we’ve got the event for you!

 

Crafts and Easter Hunt at Beaumaris Castle

What would Easter be without an Easter egg hunt? Take your little ones along to Beaumaris castle and spend the day hunting for the Easter Bunny himself!  

Like the cheeky bunny he is, he has left clues to his whereabouts – and it’s your job to find them and discover where he’s hiding. You might even win a chocolatey surprise at the end for all your hard work! But that isn’t where the fun stops.

There will also be crafts in abundance on Easter Sunday, and you’ll even get the chance to make an Easter mask. Plus, if you bring an old, clean sock you can also create a sock bunny to take away with you! It’s a great event to get those creative juices flowing and the ideal chance to have bucket-loads of fun.

Discover more here. The event will be taking place on the 16th of April. Tickets are £6.50 per adult and £4.20 per child, and there is also a special family ticket for £19.30 that admits two adults and up to three children.

 

Easter Lunch at The Deck House

The staple of any good Easter break is a delicious roast dinner, and where better to go than The Deck House at Silver Bay Holiday Village

Gather the family together and spend some quality time bonding over a luscious Sunday roast. There’s nothing quite as comforting as filling your boots with a well-cooked English dinner staple, and with our relaxed atmosphere and refined food you’ll be in for a treat.

As usual, we’ll be using the very best of local ingredients to craft a special roast dinner experience that lodge owners and Anglesey locals will adore. To find out more about our menu and book a table, click here or call us on 01407 860 860. We’ve also just launched our brand new spring menu!

 

The Great Cadbury’s Egg Hunt – Plas Newydd House and Gardens

easter on anglesey 2 silver bay holiday village north wales

Didn’t find enough chocolate at Beaumaris Castle? Well, don’t fear! Plas Newydd will also be hosting an egg-hunting event sponsored by none other than Cadbury’s themselves.

The Easter Bunny has visited Anglesey to spend some time with his dear friend, Red Squirrel. But sadly, he’s gone missing!

Hosted by the National Trust, the event will start at 11 am and finish at 3 pm and will be running between the 1st of April and the 23rd. There’s no need to book, and if you do find the Red Squirrel you can expect a yummy chocolate prize at the end.

To start the trail, head to the Cadbury’s tent, which is located adjacent to the house.

Medieval Easter Weekend – Beaumaris Castle

As well as hosting an exciting Easter egg hunt, Beaumaris Castle will also be educating their visitors over the Easter weekend with an extra-special medieval theme.

Visitors will get the chance to dive right into the heart of the medieval period as the staff recreate exactly what life was like back when the castle was first constructed.

Children can also partake in a fantastic Knight School and there will be even more arts and crafts, as well as a Birds of Prey demonstration, that the little ones will love.

To round off the day, head to the fight arena and cheer for your favourite knight as they battle for victory. It’ll be a visit to Beaumaris Castle you’ll never forget and one that the whole family will enjoy.

A family ticket costs £19.30 and admits two adults and up to three children under 16.

 

Easter on Anglesey

Whether you spend this Easter exploring Anglesey, or plan to have a weekend with the family creating some special memories at our holiday village, we hope you have a wonderful time!

If you’re a homeowner planning on spending some time at your luxury lodge over the break, make sure you keep an eye out for our Easter events blog that will be launching in the next few weeks.

Anglesey Weather – Exploring The Seasons On Our Beautiful Island


sea-bass-at-the-deck-house-anglesey-north-wales-1280x853.jpg

There’s no meal on Anglesey quite like one at The Deck House, Silver Bay. Our brand new restaurant is the heart of great food, fantastic company and unbeatable cheffing talent. Indulging at whether for lunch or dinner is a real pleasure, and we cater for all tastes, providing both vegan, vegetarian and free-from dishes, and hearty favourites too.  So no matter what you’re craving, we’ll have the dish for you.

As spring bounces into season, we’ve launched a new seasonal menu featuring some of our best plates s to date. Journey with us as we explore the seasonal culinary fare below.

 

Starters & Nibbles

Our succulent starters and tasty nibbles set the precedent for any meal at The Deck House. Brimming with only the finest seasonal ingredients on our island, our dishes whet your appetite for what’s to come.

Feast on crisp, yet tantalisingly soft, locally baked bread with our Focaccia with Balsamic and Virgin Olive Oil dip, or make your taste buds dance with our Homemade Chicken Satay Skewers. Whether you’re vegetarian, gluten-free, or can’t wait to eat everything in sight – we have a starter for you.

Because our menu is super fresh, we also offer a stunning Pâté plus a different Soup of the Day, every day. Our chef’s expert knowledge of flavour combinations and how to make the most of the season’s produce is at the heart of both these dishes. . You’ll be more than glad that you indulged!

 

Mains & Pizzas

If you’ve done your homework on The Deck House, then you’ll know we’re great believers in supporting local businesses – and why wouldn’t we be? Their quality is second to none, and from local Anglesey butcher to the artisan bakers on our island, we know we’re going to receive an exceptionally high standard of produce that feeds straight through into our sumptuous dishes.

Pizzas are one of those items, and are a staple point of our menu. Great for all ages and lunch or dinner, our classic Margarita is filled with gooey mozzarella and a fine tomato sauce.

Fancy something a little more daring? Opt for our Hot One and experience spicy ground beef, jalapenos, pepperoni and juicy onions. We serve vegetarian options on our pizzas too, so make sure you peruse the menu to find the perfect dish for your dietary needs.

Pizzas aside, we have a range of main courses that you’ll want to devour. Our Pie of the Day is a Deck House classic and changes dependent on the best local ingredients we have. This is served alongside chunky chips and fresh vegetables, offering a balanced, hearty meal.

Provided by local butchers, our Jones of Bodedern Gammon Steak and Jones of Holyhead Sirloin Steak are hard to refuse. Each dish is served with fluffy, golden chips and a range of veggies that’ll slice right through the rich meat – perfection on a plate.

 

Vegetarian

We believe vegetarian dishes are some of the tastiest around – providing you know how to do them right. Luckily for meat-avoiders we’re big fans of creating innovative vegetarian dishes that will make your dinner pop with flavour.

Our Vegetarian Special Curry is a lovely addition to your table and features seasonal veggies and a classic Indian poppadom, mango chutney and a choice of rice or chips. Or if you fancying bringing a piece of Italy into your Deck House dining experience, why not order the vegan-friendly Homemade Aubergine Meatballs? They’re served in a balsamic and basil sauce on a bed of supple linguini. You’ll feel like you’re in the heart of Rome with the sun on your shoulders as you dine on this Italian, vegan dish.

 

Children’s Menu

We like to make sure your little ones get some goodness in them with a meal at The Deck House, so we endeavour to do our best and serve up a balanced meal for children.

Beef burgers are a popular choice, and because they’re locally sourced and 100% beef, you can rest assured that you know exactly what your children are eating.

Because we know everyone’s tastes are different, we provide a varied menu for little ones that includes Southern Fried Chicken, Haddock Goujons and even Quorn and Bean Chilli Con Carne to cater to vegetarian children. Crafted by our chef talent, t, each dish is a song on the palate and is sure to keep them quiet (for a while at least!)

 

The Deck House Restaurant at Silver Bay Holiday Village

We’ve recently been awarded 5-stars on our hygiene rating here at The Deck House, and that’s because our quest for perfection goes beyond our dishes and towards the care of our kitchen overall. It’s this attention to detail that enables us to create flawless, delectable meals time and time again, ones that will ensure you’ll want to come back for more.

What treatment would you recommend for someone visiting The Spa for the first time?

When is the best time to visit The Spa at Silver Bay?

“The best time to visit The Spa is in the summer when you can enjoy our beautiful views of Snowdonia while taking a dip in our swimming pool or whilst you’re in the gym or just having a coffee.”

 

How long do your treatments last? And what are the main benefits?

“Most of our treatments are an hour long and again it all depends on what treatment the client has had so it can be anything from relieving tension and those painful knots after a massage or it can be to achieve a youthful, less problematic looking skin.”
