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.

Our stunning beach is a home to sea, sand, and a bucketload of fun – and we do everything we can to make sure it looks the part too!

From making sure our coast is green (which has won us a Green Coast Award) to improving our beachside facilities with our beautiful cafe (it’ll be open soon!), we endeavour to make every visit to Silver Bay Beach one to remember.

 

Seaside Award

We were thrilled to discover last week that we’re now the proud owners of a Seaside Award. Presented to us by Keep Wales Tidy as part of the Wales coast Awards, Silver Bay Beach has been recognised for it’s tidy and well-tended to coast and waters.

Awarded for being home to quality facilities, we’re incredibly proud to everyone who works hard to make Silver Bay Beach the picturesque beach haven that it is. The Seaside Award recognises those coasts that meet the nationwide standard for the best beaches across the UK, and the flag is a symbol of superb quality, where visitors are guaranteed to find a clean, safe, attractive and well-managed stretch of coast.’

Take a look at our shiny certificate below!

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!

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!

Silver Bay Holiday Village

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!

 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!

With warm beach weather approaching (we even had a mini heatwave over Easter!) and longer days just around the corner, summer is on the way here at Silver Bay Holiday Village.

Our calendar is jam-packed full with events that you and your loved ones won’t want to miss. And as well as making sure Silver Bayers have plenty to do, we’re also going to be digging deep for charity.

For a full run down, take a look below and pop these all important dates into your summer calendar of fun!

 

18th June – Snowdon Sunrise Charity Walk

We always take great pride in doing our bit for local charities, which is why we’ve decided to get the Silver Bay team together and embark on the Snowdon Sunrise Charity Walk 2017.

Taking place on the 18th of June, all funds raised will go towards the all-important Wales Air Ambulances. And best of all, you can join us too! Just make sure you book via Breese Adventures.

The Wales Air Ambulance team will be trekking along with us, and we’ll be walking between 1am and 9am under the guide of the Anglesey moon, led by headtorch lights! It’s a magical walk and an experience that you’ll never forget. We hope to see you there!

If you can’t participate, but would like to donate, simply visit the GoFundMe page here.

 

3rd and 4th June – Menai Raft Race

As we’re an island, there are always lots of exciting water-based activities going on. From boat voyages to adrenaline-pumping sailing, if you’re a watersports enthusiast, you’ll love Anglesey.

This year, we’ve decided to get involved with local water sports activities ourselves, and for the first time ever will be taking part in the Menai Raft Race! This annual event is an Anglesey classic, and on the 3rd and 4th of June our Grounds Maintenance Team will be heading out on the water and racing locals who have endeavoured to build their best rafts!

If you’re interested in Raft Silver Bay, like our page on Facebook where you’ll find a collection of upcoming images full of all the latest updates. And best of all, this event also raises a lot of money for local causes – which makes the Menai Raft Race one of the most important events in the Anglesey calendar.

 

Summer 2017 – Date TBC – Guinness World Record Attempt

summer silver bay guinness world record

This summer we’ll be hoping to make Silver Bay a record-breaking holiday park – and we need your help! From gathering as many superheroes as we can on the beach at one time, to building the world’s highest stack of coins on a holiday park, we want to know which event you’d like to do the most – and we need your votes on social media.

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!

 

Summer 2017 at Silver Bay Holiday Village

We hope you can make it to our events this summer, and if you don’t feel like taking part feel free to pop down and cheer us on! The team and our lodge owners will really appreciate your support.

Friday the 7th of April and Saturday the 8th are full to the top with activities for all ages.

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!

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.

Silver-Bay-Holiday-Village-Fundraising-RNLI-.jpg

It always feels great to give, and the Silver Bay community are some of the most generous people we’ve ever had the pleasure to know. So it really does come as as no surprise that we managed to raise such an astounding amount of money this Summer – £2,000 to be precise – for the Royal National Lifeboat Institute!

Known as the RNLI for short, the charity is one that’s incredibly close to our heart. With our very own private beach, we like to make sure that we support the charity that makes water activities around the UK, and our lodge owners, safe.

RNLI and Silver Bay funraising

Over the summer we organised a range of fundraising activities to raise this fantastic amount. These included our Busy Bayer’s bake sale, an exciting tennis tournament featuring a tuck shop ran by our Busy Bayers, and also a fantastic sand castle competition. Our Spa and Leisure complex also hosted an array of activities that allowed us to achieve such an amazing amount.

Chris Buckley, Operations Manager at Silver Bay explained that, “living and holidaying on Anglesey gives our community at Silver Bay a heightened awareness of the hard work and support of the brave RNLI volunteers. We endeavor to find fundraising opportunities to support the RNLI crews to have the best equipment possible, and this summer was the most fruitful yet!”

General Manager, Jamie Hughes, is also incredibly proud of all the people who donated. “It’s really great to see all ages join in and celebrate such a great cause – many of the owners have boats and enjoy their time at sea safe in the knowledge that the RNLI are active in the area. It’s great to give back, and I can’t wait to continue supporting the RNLI with our future fundraising activities.”

Fundraising on Silver Bay beach

We’d like to thank everyone who donated to the cause and if you missed out, don’t worry. We’ll be hosting even more fundraising opportunities as we head through the last part of 2016.
