Now summer has finally packed its bags and moved on, we’re looking forward to one of our favourite seasons here at Silver Bay – the wonderful Anglesey autumn.
A season brimming with home comforts and some of the most beautiful scenery to grace our shores all year round, autumn can be the perfect time to get away with the family.
If you’re considering packing up and heading to our wonderful haven during this time, then why not take a look below and discover some exciting tips about how to make the most of your break?
Here at Anglesey, we’re proud of our nature – and what better way to become more acquainted with this than a lovely, autumn walk?
Wrap up warm and wander through the likes of the ever popular Plas Cadnant Hidden Gardens (which are only open in October on Sundays and Wednesdays), or perhaps venture to the Holyhead Breakwater Country Park and experience some of the most amazing views you’ll find in Anglesey. You’ll need your camera for this one, trust us.
Grabbing a tasty warm drink and padding through the orange and red leaves of the season really makes for an extra special afternoon – so don’t miss out.
Visit the Wonderful Anglesey Beaches
When people think of the beach, they usually see visions of beautiful sun-laden shores and ice creams – but have you ever tried visiting the beach during the autumn time?
The crisp air and enticing sands make for a great place to relax and clear your mind no matter what time of year it is. If you’re coming to Anglesey to escape your fast-paced, everyday life, you won’t go far wrong with an out-of-season visit to the beach.
There are a few local ones that make for excellent attractions during this time of year, but we simply must recommend heading to our very own private Silver Bay beach whilst you’re in the area. Why drive when you have access to such awe-inspiring scenery right on your doorstep?
Celebrate Halloween in Anglesey
With autumn comes a range of celebrations, and Halloween is fast becoming a tradition appreciated by many in the UK.
Why not consider some spooky events whilst you’re visiting Anglesey? Plas Newydd is a beautiful country manner complete with gardens, but for Halloween it’s transformed into a spooktacular venue which promises a great night full of scary tales and pirates!
But most importantly, we too offer a Halloween party for all to attend in our bistro, They Hay House. So grab the family, get dressed up and enjoy a night of great fun.
Visit The Spa at Silver Bay
If you don’t feel like heading outdoors during the autumn season, then why not keep cosy indoors? In fact, we’d say autumn is the perfect season to head to the spa and make the most of this time to relax.
At our very own spa facilities in Silver Bay, we have a range of activities to indulge in. As well as two pools, we also have a jet spa, sauna, steam room, and a jacuzzi for you to unwind in too.
But it doesn’t end there – we also have a gym and a selection of excellent spa treatments available that can be enjoyed on your own, or with a partner if you’re feeling romantic.
We know how to pamper our guests at The Spa, so why not have a bit of ‘you time.’
Enjoy an Anglesey Cream Tea
The traditional cream tea has enjoyed somewhat of a revival in recent years, and Anglesey is the perfect place to indulge in scones, cakes, sandwiches and tea.
There are plenty of establishments that can fulfill your afternoon tea desires. These include the likes of The Outbuildings and Chateau Rhianfa, who both offer excellent facilities and tantalising cream teas that you’re sure to love.
Absorb Some of the Anglesey History
If you’re faced with a particularly chilly autumn day and would rather remain inside, an excellent place to visit for a slice of history is the Beaumaris Gaol prison museum.
The prison hails from the Victorian era, and it’s filled with information about what life was like in a prison during this time.
Make sure you have a good, thorough explore if you choose to visit this attraction in autumn. It’s something everyone in the family can enjoy, and it’s educational too.
Visit the Fair
The funfair at Menai Bridge is a returning once more this year. It will be held from the October 23rd through to the 24th on Water Street, Wood Street and Telford Road.
This is an ancient tradition in Anglesey, and the first event dates back to 1860 when there were local cattle markets held every year.
The funfair is a great chance to explore a range of enticing stalls and exciting rides, and it’s something that people of all ages will be able to appreciate and enjoy. Why not head over for a bit of autumn fun?
