May-Half-Term-Holiday-Activity-Planner-Silver-Bay-Holiday-Village-Anglesey.-Blog.-1-1280x853.jpg

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!

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!

Explore the full schedule below to make sure you don’t miss out on the fun:

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. Pack off the children to the room filled with games and relaxation space while you enjoy some grown-up time in the main room. Close by to keep an eye on them, but far away enough to relax. 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+. It’s then time for the children to don their creative gloves in the afternoon as they have a go at salt dough modelling (12:30pm) and spend some time working with Paper Mache (2:30pm)!

It’ll soon be Thursday the 6th, and the fun won’t be slowing down. Learn to kayak in the safety of the pool where there will be two sessions for those aged between 7-11 years and 11-16 years from 1pm onwards. Then it’s time the little ones paint their salt dough (12:30pm) or perhaps try their hand at cooking up a storm in the kitchen with our exciting baking class (2:30pm).

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. Head to Busy Bayers too for the chance to make bird feeders (12:30pm) to attract as much beautiful wildlife as possible to our holiday village.

On Good Friday, it’s the perfect chance to practicing kayaking in the pool with our morning sessions from 1pm. If the creative mood has caught your children, be sure to send them to Busy Bayers where we will also be working on our arts and crafts skills at 12:30pm. Or why not kick back and relax all day before sending the little ones to our movie night in the evening (5:00pm)? They’ll adore the chance to watch an entertaining movie with their friends!

It’s Saturday next, and Easter will only be one day away. Don’t worry though; there’s still plenty happening on site! Big news for chocolate lovers as our Easter egg hunt will be taking place between 2:30 and 4:30pm. Bring your Easter baskets to collect some yummy treats! Then to round off a fun-filled, rousing day, why not head to The Deck House for The Big Quiz? Put your knowledge to the test with your family and friends whilst enjoying a tasty little tipple.

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. There’s also an extra session for those aged 11-16yrs between 2:00 and 3:00pm – so make sure you choose the right session for your age range!

 

Easter 2017

That’s it for Easter at Silver Bay for 2017. We’ll soon be looking forwards to the May half term when we’ll get the chance to relive the fun all over again. In the meantime, we wish you a happy Easter and hope the Easter Bunny pays you a visit!

When it comes to UK holidays that all the family can enjoy, there’s nothing quite like a splendid break to Silver Bay Holiday Village.

Our holiday lodges are the ideal place for everyone to come together and create memories that will last long after you’re returned to normality – and one of the best things about what we offer at Silver Bay is that children of all ages gain access to a world of fun with each and every visit.

No matter what their age, your children will find something to keep them entertained no matter what time of year it is.

Discover below exactly what your little ones have to look forward to when visiting Silver Bay!

 

1. Half Term Activities

During the school holidays, the amount of families that flock to Silver Bay provides a genuine warm atmosphere for children.

We cater to this and nurture it, and we ensure that there’s plenty of activities for everyone to get involved with at our Busy Bayers club!

From movies and games night for those a little older, through to baking classes, quizzes, bingo and much more – we make sure your little ones always have something to do to make sure they have an amazing time at our holiday park.

 

2. Our Private Beach

Another great selling point for our customers is our private beach, and it’s an amazing place for the children to play in the sea, build sand castles, and also take part in some fun beach games.

Because our park is so family friendly, your children will have plenty of friends to play with – meaning you can sit back and chill out whilst they run amok!

We’ve even won an award for our beach – making it one of the cleanest ones in the country.

 

3. Silver Bay Leisure Complex

We’ve recently had an amazing spa and leisure development built, and with that there’s an Olympic-size pool where everyone can come together for a pleasant swim and frolic in the water.

This is a real highlight for our Silver bay residents – because who can resist a dip in the pool? For the children, there’s an array of pool based activities on offer such as snorkeling and water polo all under the watchful eye of our trained life guards and coaches.

We also have a gym and a spa to make the most of too. There’s something for every interest type at Silver Bay – and we pride ourselves on being as diverse as possible!

 

4. Parties!

We love a good party here at Silver Bay, and we often have get together’s at the Club House.

With themed nights from Hollywood Glamour to Halloween parties, we get the kids all excited with a disco and encourage fancy dress.

Parents can relax with friends over a few drinks whilst children get to dance the night away – perfect!

And then you get to watch one of our many photo montage videos after and relive the night.

 

5. There’s Plenty of Outdoor Space

At Silver Bay we’re all about making the most of our beautiful surroundings. That’s why we always make sure that there are plenty of places for your children to ride their bikes, run about and walk.

Nature soothes the soul, and our holiday park is full of it for everyone to enjoy no matter what your age! We also run a special Wild Survivors course for our Busy Bayers. Here your children learn about the art of outdoor survival with our outdoors expert. From wood whittling to fire building, your children can find their inner Ray Mears and learn some essential life-skills whilst they’re at it!

Christmas is a fun and enjoyable time for all the family, but after they’ve spent countless days at the gorgeous Silver Bay pool and on the beach, what else can you do to keep them from boredom during the Christmas period in your luxury holiday home?

There are plenty of fun and simple activities that are the perfect way to keep the children occupied during the break – so explore this blog for some exciting ideas that everyone can enjoy!

 

1. Bake a gingerbread house

If you’re trying to teach your children more about baking, then Christmas is the perfect time to do it. Baking a gingerbread house and allowing them to decorate it with icing and sweet treats is a great activity that will get everyone feeling festive.

And if a gingerbread house sounds a little too ambitious for you, then regular gingerbread men or biscuits also make the perfect backdrop for some festive decoration. Just let your imagination run wild!

 

2. Put on your own Nativity play

The Nativity play is one of the most pivotal moments in the Christmas calendar, so why not put on one of your own?

You don’t need to go over the top with fancy dress and props, but a little imagination and a video camera to watch your efforts back on at a later date can create some truly magical memories that will last a lifetime.

 

3. Create your own decorations

If you enjoy being creative and feel this is something the kids will benefit from too, then why not consider making your own decorations? Paper chains are one of the easiest items to make. All you need to do is cut coloured paper into strips and then create a loop with one of them.

By threading new loops through old ones till they link together, you can really create some beautiful decorations with minimal effort that won’t make a mess!

 

4. Get the board games out

Christmas tends to be a time of playing games and bonding, so why not dig out any old board games you have and spend some time playing them?

It’s a great way to bring the family together and will ensure you have some effortless fun close to hand when you feel like they might need some extra entertainment!

 

5. Have a Christmas movie night

Christmas films are a joy to watch for all, and if you want to have an extra special family night then why not consider putting your favourites on with a big bowl of popcorn?

It’ll also be the perfect time to indulge in the gingerbread you baked from earlier too!

 

6. Read the Night Before Christmas

There’s nothing as delightful as watching a child’s face light up with Christmas excitement, and to really get them in the mood for Christmas why not read the Night Before Christmas to them?

It’s a lovely tradition that you can adopt into your family every year, so we recommend that you give it a go and get them all excited for the big day.

 

7. Write a Christmas list to Father Christmas

Kids love writing Christmas lists to Father Christmas, so if they haven’t already then why not encourage them to this year?

If you’re worried that they’re going to launch unsuspected presents at you at the last minute, then perhaps make the focus of the letter them explaining why they deserve some lovely gifts!

It’s a joyful activity that encourages good behaviour, and the kids will have fun doing it too!

 

Christmas at Silver Bay

Silver Bay is a beautiful place throughout the year, and visiting your luxury lodge during the festive period can be a great way to escape the hustle and bustle of Christmas.

To find out more about our luxury lodges then give us a call on 01407 860 111. You can also view our online brochure here to really get a feel of what Silver Bay is all about!

Our UK holiday homes located in Anglesey are the perfect place for all the family to spend some quality time together. In this blog we’re going to discuss exactly what it would be like to spend the day in a Reef Lodge with all your loved ones around. With this in mind, you’ll be able to get a real insight into what Silver Bay have to offer.

We hope you’re feeling inspired to spend some extra special time with all the family by the end of this post!

 

09:00am

It’s time to get up and spend the morning relaxing and cooking a tasty breakfast! In your Reef kitchen, you’ll find that all the appliances you need are fully integrated, and also that there’s plenty of room to cook up a tantalising English breakfast for everyone.

After that, you can throw open your bi-fold doors and welcome in the fresh Welsh air whilst everyone gathers around your gorgeous dining table and eats their tasty breakfast. It’s also the perfect time to plan the day ahead, so make sure you discover what the whole family would like to do!

 

10:30am

Now that everyone’s dressed, and you’ve also had time to get ready in your own luxury ensuite, it’s time to head to the Silver Bay private beach!

Silver Bay Holiday Village, Silver Bay Beach, Silver Bay Tides,

Here the children will be able to frolick in the water and build some sand castles, and you’ll be able to spend some time playing together as a family and also enjoying some down time. The beach is also enjoyable on cool autumn days when the sea air is fresh and crisp if you’re hoping to stretch your legs on a walk.

 

13:00pm

After spending the morning on the beach, it’s time for a light lunch and a bit more family time. Preparing sandwiches in your kitchen is simple and easy to do, and then you can all gather round and refuel for the excitement filled afternoon!

 

14:00pm

The pool at The Spa at Silver Bay, Anglesey

After lunch has settled, it’s time to head on over to the Silver Bay pool and spa facilities. The children will love the pool and will certainly be working off their lunches in no time.

Meanwhile, you can have some time to relax. There are plenty of treatment rooms if you really want to treat yourself to some perfect relaxing time, and there’s also a jacuzzi and a lovely sauna to help you unwind.

If you fancy getting some exercise, there’s also a state of the art gym, too.

 

16:30pm

After an afternoon at the swimming pool and spa, it’s time to head home and get ready for the evening. Tonight you’ll be dining in the Hay House Bistro and taking a break from your gorgeous kitchen.

After everyone has showered in the wonderful Reef bathrooms and dressed up, it’s time to head out and have some much-deserved dinner!

 

18:00pm

silver-bay-holiday-village-anglesey-the-deck house-

Everyone’s now at The Deck House, and they’re having a blast. Because everyone’s had such a relaxing day, the atmosphere is chilled out and pleasant – the family are actually getting along for once!

 

19:30pm

After the meal it’s time to head back home to the Reef and relax as a family before bed. With the television on, you can settle down to a film that all the family can enjoy in your beautiful Reef living room.

Then, with sleepy children in abundance, you can pop them off to bed and spend some time together – just the two of you.

 

23:00pm

Now that the long day is drawing to a close, it’s time to head off to bed yourself. Your comfortable Reef bedroom is calling, and the relaxing decor will ensure you have such a wonderful night’s sleep. You’ll find yourself fully rested in the morning and ready to start having some more Silver Bay fun all over again!

The best childhood memories have their origins in summertime. Camping in the back garden, lapping up ice cream, and spending the long evenings in the company of family are memories we can all cherish.

But we know that little ones aren’t always easy to please, either.

So, if you’re taking a trip down to Anglesey this summer, then there are a host of wonderful activities to keep you and the little ones occupied. We’ve cherry-picked our favourite attractions – from rib riding to crab fishing – and we’re certain your little ones will love them too.

 

1. Crab fishing at Beaumaris Pier

Beaumaris Pier is famous for its stunning views and relaxed atmosphere. But it is also a haven for children who want to experience everything sun, sea, and sand related – including crab fishing.

In fact, Beaumaris Pier is perfectly suited for crabbing with its low railings and friendly atmosphere.

All you need to take part is:

  • String

  • Bait (bacon, chicken, or fish…)

  • Heavy object to keep the bait on the string

  • Children’s fishing net

Simply tie your bait to a piece of string and wrap the line around your finger. Then lower the string into the sea and wait until you feel the crab tug.

Once you’ve made contact with the crab, you can slowly begin to pull the string upwards without frightening the creature. Just before it reaches the surface you can use a fishing net to make sure you don’t lose the crab.

If you plan on keeping the crab, then make sure you have a bucket of salt water nearby. Children will love releasing the crabs back into the water later on – so keep a good eye on them in the mean time.

After all that’s done, finish off with an ice cream at Red Boat and enjoy the last of the day’s sunshine.

2. Anglesey Riding Centre

If not everyone in your brood loves the idea of crabbing, then perhaps some horse riding will be more up their street.

The Anglesey Riding Centre is perfect for little ones who want to experience some pony trekking, beach riding, or even one-on-one lessons. The classes are suited to every learner type, including beginners, so there’s no need for first-time nerves.

But what makes Tal y Foel really special, beyond the horses, is its stunning views across the Menai Straits. You will see Caernarfon Castle in all its glory, including little boats going to and fro across the bay.

This is a wonderful day out for children and adults alike.

 

3. Foel Farm Park

Foel Farm Park is one of our favourite attractions in Anglesey – especially if you’re travelling with the pitter patter of tiny feet.

A real working farm, Foel Farm Park gives children the opportunity to experience first-hand what it’s like to live and work with agricultural animals. There’s plenty of chances to get up close and personal with the animals too, like piglets, sheep, and more horses.

Foel Farm Park also has a lovely onsite cafe and gift shop, offering a welcome chance for parents to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery. On a sunny day, the outdoor terrace boasts views to Menai Strait and Snowdonia.

We definitely recommend you set aside an afternoon for this lovely attraction.

4. Pili Palas Nature World

Sticking with the animal theme, there is one last warm and fuzzy site you have to visit in Anglesey.

This fun-loving nature world has every kind of creature you could imagine, from meerkats to llamas. There are also a number of daily activities that children can take part in – such as:

  • Meet the Snake

  • Lizard Land

  • Bugs (including stick insects and millipedes)

  • Pets (rabbits or guinea pigs)

You can even be a zookeeper for the day, if you fancy.

5. Rib Ride

Last, but certainly not least, any family traveling to Anglesey has to experience Rib Ride.

This has been routinely voted the best thing to do on our island, and it’s not hard to see why.

Travelling on one of their high speed boasts, tourists will be given the chance to whip under Britannia Bridge and see Anglesey’s famous shipwrecks, whirlpools, and stunning coastline.

You will also get the chance to see ‘Millionaires Row’, before travelling past Caernarfon Castle and Fort Belan.

Expect to learn everything there is to know about Anglesey and this island’s rich cultural heritage in the most heart-thumping way possible.

There’s a reason why Rib Ride is so popular.
