We had such a fantastic time during our last open day that we’ve decided to host another!

Taking place on Sunday the 20th of August 2017, come and visit us between 12pm and 4pm and explore our picturesque holiday village and our magnificent lodges.

Of course, there will be champagne and nibbles to enjoy, and as well as taking a look at our lodges, you can also explore our fantastic amenities.

But for now, here’s a little taster of what you can expect…

 

Our Lodges

Whether it’s the contemporary Lookout lodge, or the luxurious Reef Edge, it could all be yours… 

Imagine kicking back in the centre of luxury, switching off from the outside world, and spending time with your loved ones.

It’s what attracts so many to our holiday village, and why we think it’ll attract you too.

Our lodges are finished to the highest of standards, and come with beautiful views of the coast, Snowdon, and the lovely village of Rhoscolyn. They have two or three bedrooms, meaning there’s plenty of space for everyone, and they are the finest in modern, spacious holiday home living.

Our holiday properties also come with a garden, and can be fitted with bespoke decking giving you effectively an extra room outdoors, and a place where you can sip a cocktail, enjoying the sunset, night after night.

Everyone that comes to Silver Bay falls in love with our lodges and our holiday park – and we’re certain that you will too.

 

Silver Bay Beach

As one of the most beautiful coasts in the country, Silver Bay beach has the ability to take your breath away as soon as you lay your eyes on it.

Bask in the cool waters, or spend some time constructing the finest sand castle in all the land with your little ones. Silver Bay Beach is simply full of family memories just waiting to be created.

Best of all, our beach is exclusively open to lodge owners, and it has a brand new beach cafe to enjoy! Did someone say ice cream?!

Our beach is so beautiful that is the proud owner of a few awards. We boast a Green Flag Award, as well as a Seaside Award which is brand new for 2017. We keep a tidy, green coast for everyone to enjoy – and we now have the awards to prove it!

 

The Spa at Silver Bay

When you’re done exploring the beach, The Spa at Silver Bay is the place to be. Our Spa team are incredibly skilled when it comes to relaxation and treatments, and we’ve just launched our brand new Spa offering! You can take a look at it here.

Most of our treatments are done using fabulous ELEMIS products because we know they’re great for all skin types. And when you’ve had your treatment, whether it be a facial or full body massage, remember that the gym is there to be used, as is our beautiful pool and jacuzzi.

It really is relaxation at its finest.

 

Open Day at Silver Bay

We hope to see you this Sunday for our open day. You’ll get the chance to explore our Lookout lodge, the beach, our spa and much more.

Remember, there’s no need to book, but if you’d like to find out more you can contact us on 01407 860 860, or request someone to call you here.

Silver Bay Summer Party – As It Happened!

What’s On On Anglesey – The 2017 Events You Won’t Want To Miss

The long anticipated Silver Bay Summer Party rolled into our Deck House with style last weekend. Effortlessly, it lived up to expectations as friends and family enjoyed a night to remember.

It was an night of eating, drinking (lots of this) and dancing. There was something to keep all ages smiling, our Busy Bayers were entertained with face painting activities and a clown magician act to keep the cries of boredom at bay.

While the children made new friends and revelled in Mr Trix’s magic show, raucous laughter continued on in bar area as our lodge owners caught up with friends old and new. The fantastic atmosphere of the night was aptly summed up by Silver Bay lodge owner Jamie Watson:

“From an owner’s perspective the buffet was fantastic, no queuing at the bar, cocktail bar was a fun addition, entertainment was really good for kids and adults – well done to everyone involved!”

Food made a big impression on our Silver Bayers as there was definitely no shortage of variety. From chicken goujons, quiche, mixed salad and new potatoes; there was an abundance to please all taste buds – compliments to Head Chef Lee and the kitchen team!

As the night rolled on, Silver Bay Summer Party favourites, Runaway Babies, made soundwaves across the venue with pop classics like ‘Uptown Funk’ and ‘Shine’ by Take That. With happy vibes echoing through the Silver Bay Deck House, questionable dancing ensued and the evening was going exactly as planned.

The main reason for the fantastic execution of the Silver Bay Summer Party solely rested on the shoulders of organisers and staff from front and back of house. These included caterers, bartenders and management. Chris Buckley, operations manager at Silver Bay, praised the hard-work of all those ensuring that the party was enjoyed by all:

“What an amazing evening. Karen (our fantastic receptionist) has literally hundreds of photos of last nights summer party but in this case a photo doesn’t say a thousand words. There are no photos of the back of house teams or the kitchen or the hours spent organising and checking that this event would be as seamless as possible.”

He also went on to give thanks to the amazing work by all the members of staff who contributed to a great evening:

“Mine and Jamie Hughes’ thanks go out to those Heads of Departments HODs and their teams for all those hours. An incredible night from an extraordinary team. Thank you for being awesome.”

So there you have it, another successful Silver Bay Summer Party done and dusted with our lodge community looking forward to the next big one. Unfortunately, we’re going to have to wait another year for the summer celebration, but keep your eyes peeled for our Halloween bonanza which is just around the corner. Until then, Silver Bayers!

4 North Wales Food Festivals To Look Forwards To This Summer

Why Silver Bay Is The UK’s Best Beach Holiday Destination

Fantastic news! There’s been a certain buzz around the Silver Bay Holiday Village recently, more specifically in the form of 20,000 bees!

Not so long ago, we announced that we were launching a scheme to #SaveTheBees, an initiative that has been created to protect our flying friends who are synonymous with the English lifestyle and surrounding area of Anglesey.

In recent years, the honey bee has been under constant threat of depopulation, a problem that has been largely credited to a lack of forage and increasing use of pesticides.

However, under the BH&BPA David Bellamy Proposals – hundreds of parks have already got involved to Save Silver Bay Bees, a driving force which has been primarily led through social media involvement and community outreach.

Chris Buckley, Operations Manager at Silver Bay, reinforced the importance of public contribution to helping save the bee’s and the environment: “The scheme was driven by the desire to protect and contribute to the declining bee population nationwide. Almost 350 David Bellamy parks have achieved Honey Bee Friendly status. This means parks have put in the forage plants that bees need to survive. Spreading the word about the bee conservation will be a big focus of the Honey Bee Friendly Parks project this year.”

Save Silver Bay Bees with 5* Hotels

Alongside the huge insurgence of honey bees on Silver Bay grounds, there has also been creations of ‘Bee Hotels’, from small-scale bee B&B’s, to what can only be described as bee condominiums. If you haven’t got on the bee-hotel bandwagon, now’s the time to start. Take a look here for inspiration and advice.

5 Honey Bee Facts

Most of you by now may now be more informed to why we need to save our small, furry friends. But here’s a few honey bee facts to take the sting out of things:

  • Honey has antiseptic properties and was regularly used to dress wounds and burns many years ago.
  • Honey is massively important to pollinators allowing for flowers, vegetables and fruit to grow.
  • The average worker bee lives for just five to six weeks. While she is alive, she will only create a 12th of a teaspoon of honey.
  • Honey bees wiggle or dance to communicate with one another – usually this is to indicate the direction of the food source.
  • The queen bee can live up to five years. The summer months are always the busiest for her, where she will lay 2,500 eggs.

Why not make this the year you take the Honey Bee Friendly pledge? Take a look at www.bbka.org.uk/learn/gardening_for_bees for some great tips and more information here to get you started with helping to Save Silver Bay Bees.

While you’re here, check out our Honeycomb Recipe below.

Honeycomb Recipe

 

Ingredients

  • 200g caster sugar
  • 3 tbsp of honey
  • ¼ tbsp of cream of tartar
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp of bicarbonate of soda


Equipment

  • Large heavy based pan
  • Baking sheet
  • Spatula
  • Scales
  • Spoons
  • Sugar thermometer

Method

  • Put sugar, honey, cream of tartar & butter into a large heavy based pan with 60ml water (mixture should triple in size, so ensure pan is big enough)
  • Simmer until sugar and butter & butter dissolves.
  • Heat to 122 degrees celsius on thermometer, or until a small piece forms a solid ball when dropped in cold water.
  • Remove from heat & beat in bicarbonate of soda
  • Tip out immediately onto baking sheet & leave to cool – do not touch, it’s hot!
  • Once cool, break up and enjoy.
  • Store in an airtight container.

Bon Appetit!

 

Update on the Hives

We now have two colonies of honey bees on site called “Heather” and “Willow”, both of which are named after important foraging flowers for the bees. Each colony is progressing well. In fact, they have doubled in size since arriving a few weeks ago and now each hive contains around 16,000-18,000 bees! They enjoy bringing in nectar from flowers and processing this into honey, and one of their favourite flower spots are the heather flowers on the coastal headland at the moment.

Our “Heather” hive is slightly larger than “Willow”, although the queen is shy and hard to spot! The queen of Willow, however, is quite happy to be seen going about her business and laying eggs.

We know some of our owners have been desperate to taste some of our honey, but you’ll have to be patient. All the honey collected now will be winter food stores for the bees themselves as they build up strength for the colder months. It’ll be next year that we’ll see a surplus that we’ll be able to enjoy, too!

Don’t forget our “Visit The Bees” days are held on Tuesdays in August, and we’ll also be hosting bee-related activities at Busy Bayers on Thursday mornings. Book in the spa if you don’t want to miss out!

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

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
