What an incredible summer it’s been. From our annual fishing competition to our owner’s summer party, the fun hasn’t stopped!

Sadly, we’re waving goodbye to the warmer months now, but before we do we thought we’d revisit the very best of the best of summer 2017.

Keep an eye out – you might even make an appearance!

 

The Owner’s Summer Party

silverbay bar

Right at the beginning of summer we hosted our annual owner’s party in The Deck House! The Runaway Babies band made a magnificent return, and everyone danced the night away with friends and family in abundance.

A taste bud-tingling buffet was put on by the magnificent chefs, and all of the staff involved we’re on top form, ensuring a brilliant night was had by all.

Mr Trix the clown even made an appearance, much to the delight of the young members of the Silver Bay family!

Busy Bayers

It was another amazing summer for our busy bayers activities. From snorkelling to wild survivors, new friends were made and the fun times were in full swing.

A centre point of our Busy Bayers activities this year was, of course, our new addition to the holiday village – the Silver Bay bees! Activities such as building our bee hotel and Bee Creative, where we designed some beautiful bee collages, kept everyone thoroughly entertained.

Our Wild Survivor attendees also earned a Silver Wild Challenge award from the RSPB for all the amazing work they’ve done to help nature. We’re incredibly proud of everyone involved.

Fitness & Spa

We’ve also been making sure that everyone keeps fit over the summer! Our outdoor bums and tums was a popular class, and we’ve also been offering private, 1-2-1 swimming lessons. It has been a real joy seeing children learn to swim in our pool alongside our excellent instructors.

Alongside promoting fitness this summer, we’ve also been pushing self-care. The Spa at Silver Bay has launched a brand-new brochure full of fantastic treatments that our lodge owners and locals have been making the most of. From shellac nails to facials, take a look here for the brochure and pick your perfect treatment! Make sure you also keep an eye out for our September offers which are as follows:

  • Our Superfood Pro Radiance facial is now just £45, reduced from £60!
  • Our Pro Radiance Flash Balm & Illuminating Eye Balm is now just £50, reduced from £71

 

The Deck House Entertainment

It has been an incredible summer of fun in the Deck House this year! We’ve had everything from fashion shows to live musicians, and wine tasting evenings.

Highlights include singer and guitarist Kiana, live music with Mojo, an evening of fashion, fizz and shopping with Mrs Jones, and our wine taste evening featuring our preferred wine merchant John Fearon Wines. There really has never been a dull moment this summer!

Beach Activities

When you’ve got a picturesque beach like we have, it’d be foolish not to host a range of summer activities along the coast – which is why Silver Bay Beach is always a staple of our summer schedule.

This year saw the return of Beach Mudder, and our owners battled once more to take the crown – congratulations to our winners the uniquely named Psycho Unicorns. We also hosted our annual sandcastle competition which saw everything from bee parties to Pierce’s truck, winners included The Goddards, Becky & Grace, Erica Keasberry and Theo! And 2017 also saw our fishing competition return. Split into junior and adult categories, our winners were Ed Wilson, Rowen Dier, Holly McLean Watts and Noah Rockliffe. Kevin McLean also put on an excellent BBQ!

Sports on the beach

This summer also saw us become the proud owners of a Seaside Award from Keep Wales Tidy for our immaculate coast. You can read more about that over here.

 

Summer 2017

We’re sad to say goodbye to summer, but also ready for a magnificent end to 2017! Our Halloween Party will be making a comeback, as will our Christmas and NYE celebrations. Make sure you keep an eye on our Facebook account for our brand new autumn Deck House menu, as well as our half-term planner where we’ll be bringing back loads of exciting activities to keep the run times rolling!

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!

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’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.

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!

So whether you fancy adventures along the beach, in our own forest or through the sand dunes, there’s always something fun to see and do.

The team at Silver Bay Holiday Village are busy in preparation for our residents who will be heading to our luxury lodge park for February Half-Term!

As always, we want to make the experience for our Silver Bay residents memorable, so this half-term we’ve put together a programme of exciting events for all the family. Our mission is to inspire, educate, set hearts pumping, and also to get the cogs ticking. We hope you’ll be pleased with what we have to offer for you this February break!

 

Movie and Games Nights

The ‘Busy Bayers’ can expect a brilliant start to the holidays on Friday 12th February with a Movie Night for children of all ages, 7pm-8.30pm. For the Silver Bay teens, we’re kicking off half-term with a Games Night 7.30pm-10pm – the perfect opportunity for friends to catch up since their last stay.

From Friday 19th February, there’s a programme of activities which even the busiest of Bayers would find tricky to tick all off the list! From arts and craft, fun and games, to fitness, there’s something to suit all tastes.

 

Sport and Fitness

Our active activities planned for over half-term include snorkelling, water polo, dodge ball, junior and youth supervised fitness, Kwik Cricket and also Tri-Golf for all the family to enjoy. These will run on Saturday 13th February and Thursday 18th February, 1pm-2pm.

Arts and Crafts

If your child enjoys arts and crafts we have an array of artistic activities in store too. We have Glass Craft, Sand Art, Candle Creations and even a special Valentine’s Day themed crafts workshop on Sunday 14th February.

Special Valentine’s Day Themed Activities

In fact, if you fancy a romance filled Valentine’s Day celebration we have a whole host of children’s activities to keep your little ones entertained.

We’re starting Valentine’s Day with a Heart Hunt on the Silver Bay grounds beginning at 11am, followed by Let’s Bake Valentine’s Day Special 12pm-2pm. And last but not least, your little ones can dance their hearts out at the Valentine’s Disco 7.30pm – 9.30pm, where the Busy Bayers can test out their latest dance moves that they learnt at the Let’s Dance workshop on Saturday 13th February, 2pm-3pm.

 

Fun and Games

A stay at Silver Bay wouldn’t be complete without our inaugural games nights. From quizzes, to bingo, we’re sure to keep your children happy and busy over the half-term holiday! See our programme for details of days and times.

 

Wild Survivors

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!
