With the glorious Welsh summertime comes a plethora of exciting food festivals here in North Wales. Whether you fancy indulging your sweet tooth in local honey, or are perhaps hankering to spend a weekend camping and tasting local craft ales, we’ve got the food festival for you in this very blog!

 

  1. The Beaumaris Food Festival

A classic that everyone loves on Anglesey, the Beaumaris Food Festival is back for 2017. Taking place on the 2nd and 3rd of September, there’ll be an array of exciting stalls that’ll leave you desperate to start munching!

Last year, a range of classic Anglesey businesses flocked to the event. Bucket loads of sumptuous fudge, delightful olives, tasty cheeses and fluffy scones are just a few of the key things that visitors enjoyed in 2016.

Although the 2017 stall guide is yet to be released, we can’t wait to see what comes up. If previous years are anything to judge by, it promises to be a fabulous weekend where you’ll be able to fill your boots with some of the tastiest foods on our island!

  1. Conwy Honey Fair

We know how important bees, and honey, are at the moment. As a species whose existence has been threatened, we’ve endeavoured to do our best to support the local honey bees here at Silver Bay. We a visit from some beekeepers over the May half-term, and they helped us to build homes for our fuzzy friends that will ensure they have a safe place to live and thrive.

It’s always good to know that these marvellous workers are being looked after, and heading down to the Conwy Honey Fair is a great place to be if you wish to sample the delights of all the tiny winged creatures have to offer.

The Conwy Honey Fair is one of the oldest food fairs located in North Wales, and, as you might have guessed from the name, the festival will be taking place in the beautiful Conwy. Of course, you can expect endless honey at the festival, but the fun doesn’t stop there. Lots of locally sourced crafts and products will also be on offer to purchase, making this festival a real delight.

Taking place in September 2017, the official dates are yet to be confirmed. Make sure you keep checking their website for more information.  

 

  1. Anglesey Beer Festival

Although not necessarily a food festival, the Anglesey Beer Festival is a must-do for those with a taste for great ale in the area! Again, this festival is taking place in September, and it’s spread across two delightful, beer-loving days!

You can even camp out, if you so wish, which will ensure you avoid the issue of who’s driving, and you’ll get the chance to experience lots of local craft beers that you’re sure to love. Because this event is all about raising money too, you’ll get to contribute to some incredibly worthy causes – everyone wins!

Finally, there are also local bands performing that will fill the atmosphere with excitement and life. It’s a lovely festival, perfect for adult groups, that will make you want to come back again next year. Keep an eye out for the official date announcement.

  1. Anglesey Farmers Market

Finally, our last festival for you to enjoy is the Anglesey Farmers Market. The markets take place once every month on the third Saturday, and you can catch it on the 15th of July or the 19th of August.

Specialising in presenting the very best of the best in local Anglesey produce, the farmers market is always a delight to explore. Held in David Hughes School, Menai Bridge, there are lots of freshly baked goods, local produce, and even a range of fresh crab that’s caught along our very coast. Of course, there’s also tasty meats on offer including Guinea fowl and Welsh Black beef. In short, there’s so much on offer that you’ll struggle to decide what to buy – but don’t worry, you can always come back next month to try some more delightful food.

Stalls often give out free tasting samples too, so don’t miss out on this year-round market that’ll knock your foodie socks off!

 

Food on Anglesey

Of course, Anglesey is home to plenty of tasty restaurants – and one of those is our very own Deck House. So if after a long day of exploring the food festivals, you fancy kicking back and letting someone else do the cooking for a change, you know where to go! A guest favourite that people enjoy time and time again is our Jones of Holyhead steak! Yum!

The Wessex Classic

You don’t get the word ‘classic’ in your name without being a truly magnificent holiday home, and the Wessex is a lodge that you’ll enjoy holidaying in time and time again.

Featuring wall-length windows and a stunning, open plan living space, with room for all your loved ones, the Wessex classic is a classic example of what a holiday home should be.

The homely kitchen is equipped with all the high-tech essentials, and the living and dining space parades a tranquil ambiance as the natural light flows through. Relax in the bedroom of an evening, rest assured in the knowledge that your holiday home really is a picture-perfect paradise.

The Vista

Surrounded by envy-inducing decking and home to modern and chic decor, the Vista holiday lodge is a delight. Step through the double french doors and into bliss, soaking up the contemporary styling and uplifting decor.

Skylights are a beautiful feature throughout this property, and they add a certain element of luxury that regular windows simply cannot afford. Spotlights also decorate the lodge ceiling, providing ample light and views of the stars when night falls.

The spacious bedrooms will keep everyone in the family happy, and the two bathrooms, one of which is ensuite, ensures that this property is certainly well above par. The Vista is simply waiting for a loving family to turn this magnificent holiday lodge into a holiday home. Could it be you?

The Reef Edge

silver-bay-holiday-village-luxury-lodges-anglesey-lounge

Few holiday homes impress as much as the Reef Edge does on first sight.

Enjoy dining alfresco on the stunning decking as the sun sets, or head inside to a welcoming holiday lodge where you’ll forever feel at home.

The dark wooden floors and contrasting light walls are what first draws the eye in the property. Each add an element of character and style to the property, and act as the perfect backdrop to the elegant furniture.

Curl up on the plush, cream sofas, or spend some time playing a family board game on the gorgeous wood dining table complete with wicker chairs. Then retire to one of the luxurious bedrooms and unwind in the heart of refined holiday home living. You won’t look back!

The Oyster Catcher

Benefiting from year-round comfort and style, the Oyster Catcher is a beauty.

Brand new to the site for 2017, this lodge comes with a modern, integrated kitchen and is an advocate for open plan living. Light floods through this holiday home, providing a light and airy feel. The beechwood styling in the Oyster Catcher also adds to this comfortable ambiance – and the mustard accents provide a dash of bright colour that really pops.

Cook up a storm in the rustic kitchen, or relax in the standalone bath tub fit for royalty; there’s something about this property that captures the heart.

A favourite with children, who adore the built-in bunk beds, the Oyster Catcher is the ideal place to spend your free time on the gorgeous Isle of Anglesey.

The Look Out

Our final new lodge for 2017 is the Look Out.

Arranged over a variety of floors, the Look Out is eye catching and unique, offering both excellent fixtures and fittings as well as an inspiring exterior.

This holiday home is all about modern furnishings and magnificent views, and due to the fact it’s on one of the most desirable spots here at Silver Bay, it’s a firm favourite.

It features a chic, 60s colour scheme and combines this with multi-level living. A triumph of architectural design in holiday lodges, it has to be seen to be believed. It will be love at first sight with this lodge, of that we’re sure!

The Lookout – Luxury Holiday Lodge At Silver Bay…

Few luxury holiday lodge properties have the bespoke, sumptuous feel that the Lookout Lodge encapsulates. With the beautiful, unique living space feeding through towards a stunning kitchen diner and a variety of luxurious bedrooms and bathrooms, the Lookout holiday lodge is unequivocal in both style and charm.

But to really get into the beating heart of this holiday home requires further exploration, so stay with us as we whisk you away on a journey through this property’s elegant, chic nature.

 

Living Space

Multi-level rooms are the Lookout’s solution to modern living. Venture up a small flight of stairs and you’ll find yourself in the heart of the lodge; the stunning living space. With full-length windows allowing for a gentle light fill every corner, the Lookout living room is soaked in natural light, where you can’t help but feel optimistic.

The corner sofa and wall to wall radiator contribute to what this living room does best – offering a cosy atmosphere – and the delicate cream tones with accents of mustard and dark grey provide a contemporary edge into the room that really catches the eye. Spend winter evenings nestled amongst the pillows, and during the warmer months while away the days relaxing on the lodge’s bespoke sofa with the terrace doors thrown open, a cool breeze enveloping you.

Whatever you enjoy doing in your living room at home can be recreated in the Lookout holiday lodge, only tenfold.

       

Kitchen & Dining

Often thought of as the soul of the property, the kitchen and dining space in the Lookout is distinctive with an edge of luxury.  Decorated with the same relaxing creams and mustards, and deep, thoughtful greys throughout the rest of the property, the modern, on-trend kitchen provides plenty of side space, storage and kitchen mod cons. Keep the family closer than ever before as the lines between cooking and dining blur into one, offering a wholesome family eating experience.

The dining area in the Lookout is framed by stunning wall-length windows, bringing an alfresco feel to breakfast, lunch and dinner all year round. The glorious, mustard and white dining set is a dream to dress with elegant tableware, and it’s the perfect place for those you love to catch up in a way that is sometimes lost in hectic everyday life.

       

Bedrooms

After a busy day exploring, relaxing and having fun, there’s no better feeling than sliding into your pyjamas and spending the night in a Lookout bedroom. The master is complete with a stylish, spacious bed and is decorated with a myriad of retro yet elegant features, and the large windows, yet again, bring in the beautiful surroundings found at our award-winning holiday park.

The mirrored wall decor and the eye-catching glass lights add an element of chic to the property, and there is a total of three, stunning bedrooms to choose from – one of which is complete with four funky, built-in bunk beds that little ones will adore.

      

Bathrooms

The Lookout has two bathrooms, the main one containing an elegant bathroom set finished with a modern, geometrical bath tub that you’ll be desperate to soak in as soon as you lay eyes on it

The second bathroom is an ensuite to the master bedroom, and comes with porcelain sink, toilet and a shower cubicle, meaning there’s plenty of space for everyone to get ready in peace in the morning.

Each bathroom is home to calming white tones that sets the tranquil ambience, so much so that you’ll be hard pressed not to appreciate the summit of luxury this holiday home radiates.

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.

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!

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.

It’s a win-win for everyone!

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?

Excellent Easter Activities to Enjoy on Anglesey

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.
