The Easter holidays may almost be over but we’re still feeling in that holiday mood from the success of our Easter activities. We want to thank everyone that visited Silver Bay during the holidays, it wouldn’t have been the same without you!

From scuba diving and lifeguarding to football and pilates, and not forgetting a whole selection of arts and crafts activities for the Busy Bayers, there really was something for everyone to enjoy over the holidays.

This year we changed things up slightly for the Silver Bay Easter egg hunt with people of all ages searching every nook and cranny of the park for codes to solve the final puzzle; it was great to see friends and families working together to find the codes and earn their Easter eggs.

Easter egg hunt at Silver Bay

After working up an appetite at the Easter egg hunt we served up a carvery with a selection of different meats and all the trimmings. We received some great feedback on the carvery and will be doing it again soon, keep an eye on our Facebook page for any updates.

 

Halfway through the holidays we welcomed prospective lodge owners to our Easter Open Day to experience Silver Bay for themselves, including our luxury lodges, facilities and beach. We hope to open our gates again soon so make sure to keep an eye out for our next email invite.

We may be entering the final few days of our Easter activities but it won’t be long until the May half term where we’ll have a whole host of activities to keep the family occupied; look out for our activity newsletter, coming soon. If you’d like to find out more about how to become a lodge owner at Silver Bay or would like to arrange a visit you can request a callback from a member of our friendly team or view our online brochure.

We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who attended our annual Christmas party on the 9th December. We were joined by owners, family and friends for games and dancing plus a visit from Santa himself!

To remember the night we’ve put together a video of some of our favourite photos, we’d love to see your photos from the night as well so make sure to share them with us and use the hashtag #SilverBayXmas.

Can’t see your photo in the video? Make sure to check out our Facebook photo album and tag yourself, family and friends.

New Year’s Eve Party

After our successful Christmas Party it’s time to look forward to New Year’s Eve. Tickets are now sold out for this event but for those of you who are attending, dig out your shoulder pads and hairspray and get ready to go back to the 80s! We look forward to seeing you all there and make sure to share your photos with us on social media.

We also have some activities taking place over the New Year’s weekend for the Busy Bayers, such as arts and crafts, baking and hair braiding. You can find out more about specific activities and times in our Christmas newsletter blog.

Preparing your holiday home for winter

We’d like to remind you that the park will be closed from 4th January to 12th February. The cold weather can sometimes cause issues so it’s important to make sure your lodge is prepared for the downtime. Here’s a couple of useful tips:

  • Protect all your outdoor furniture by storing it either inside your shed or inside your lodge; any heavy glass-top tables will need turning upside down and securing
  • Turn your boiler to FROST STAT and turn your water supply off at the stopcock, you can make sure the system has run dry by opening all the taps. Alternatively, you may request a DRAIN DOWN, this will drain your holiday water supply, including the heating system, and antifreeze will be put into the system to avoid pipes freezing and bursting

We’d also like to remind you that the boat park will be secured by bollards over the season closure so please ensure all valuables and electronic equipment is removed from your boat if possible.

Spa Beauty Offers

You’ve still got some time left to make the most of our December spa and beauty offers.

Our treatment of the month is the ELEMIS Couture Touch Face & Body treatment, reduced from £60 to £40. The 60 minute treatment consists of an ELEMIS hands-on TOUCH facial with a personalised Freestyle Deep Tissue Massage or Deeper than Deep Hot Stone Massage.

If you don’t have time for a full treatment why not pick up our product of the month – ELEMIS Skin Buff. This deep cleansing exfoliator re-energises dull and lifeless skin, leaving skin brighter and allowing it to breathe.

You can find out more about our spa treatments here.

Finally, we’d like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and for those not able to attend the New Year’s Eve party, a Happy New Year!


mands-christmas-decorations.jpg

The first weekend of December has been and gone and that can only mean one thing – it’s time to put your Christmas decorations up! We’ve been keeping an eye on the latest decoration trends this year to help make your holiday lodge look extra special over the festive period. Here are some of the top trends to help you on your way:

Scandinavian

From Scandi-noir TV series gracing our screens to Hygge taking the country by storm last Christmas, Scandinavian culture has well and truly made its way into our lives.

The trend is very much about “less is more” with a focus on the colour white, even down to the colour of your Christmas lights (keep to white bulbs rather than mixing them with warm, yellow bulbs). To keep to the minimal aesthetic, try to stick to only one or two colours throughout the house.

The tradition of kissing under the mistletoe comes from Norse mythology so it makes sense to complete the theme with a sprig hanging above the door. Why not tie it together with a ribbon in your chosen colour scheme? Stockings hung over the fireplace is also a Christmas essential; maybe try some white, knitted ones in-keeping with that cosy, Scandi feeling.

Quirky

On the opposite end of the spectrum is the quirky trend where you can mix as many themes and colours as you want, sometimes the more the better. If you do want to stick to a theme, how about going tropical? Palm tree prints aren’t just confined to summer and pineapple-shaped glassware and baubles are everywhere this year, too.

Not keen on the tropical theme? Why not go for a cactus, unicorn or even a llama? The rule of the quirky trend is that there are no rules, but if you want a bit of direction think colourful decorations in block colours, clashing patterns, neon brights, quirky accessories and pops of metallic.

Country

Countryside styling takes the classic festive look and gives it a farmhouse spin. It’s all about using raw and rustic materials paired with classic shapes and designs. Up-cycled pieces also play a big part and give that homely, tactile feeling.

When picking your decorations think raw wood, textured finishes, industrial metals, hessian fabric, linens and vintage tableware.

Festive flowers

Bringing the outdoors indoors is more prevalent than ever, with many people filling their houses with indoor plants and buying fresh flowers, so it’s no surprise that this has influenced Christmas decorations as well. You may have noticed most shops now sell the classic Poinsettia, known as the “Christmas flower” in North America.

This festive season no flower arrangement would be complete without some sparkle and glitter and many florists are taking a modern approach by combining crisp, white flowers with different metals. This year’s bouquets are also bursting with colour, featuring festive reds and greens.

There’s many ways you can bring the outdoors inside this Christmas; how about entwining a floral garland around your staircase or framing a mirror? Or why not create a spectacular floral centrepiece for the table?

Metallics

This year, metallics featured heavily in both interior design and fashion and there’s no exception when it comes to Christmas decorations.

Copper, rose gold and bronze will be bigger than ever this festive period and this isn’t restricted to just the decorations. Hosting and entertaining is a big part of Christmas so your tableware is the perfect place to add a touch of glamour.

Whether you’re going for the minimal Scandi look or the over-the-top quirky trend when decorating your holiday lodge, we’d love to see your photos. Make sure to share your photos with us on Facebook and Instagram and tag Silver Bay with the hashtag #SilverBayXmas

As the temperature drops and the nights draw in, Silver Bay becomes a haven of winter luxury. Bask in our warm spa, hidden away from the cool evenings in our magnificent pool or jacuzzi, or spend nights curled up with the family in your holiday lodge, heating on, board games out.

Whatever your favourite part of winter is, we think everyone can agree that it’s such special time at our Anglesey holiday park with lots of magical family memories just waiting to be made.

Christmas Party

Already, our Christmas Party is less than a month away. This year, the big night will take place on the 9th of December from 4:40 pm to midnight. As usual, Father Christmas himself will be stopping by to say hello to all the little ones, and a fantastic festive buffet will provide a place for you to fill your boots with scrumptious grub. There’ll also be face painting, games, and drinks until midnight!

Of course, our Christmas party is owners-only, so if you want to book your space, wait no longer! Call us on 01407 860 860 right away. Tickets are £8 per adult and £3 for children. Best of all, under 3’s go free.

 

New Year’s Eve

What would the end of the year be without our fabulous annual New Year’s Eve party at The Deck House? This year, we’re throwing a tribute to the outlandish 80’s!

Tickets are also on sale for this fantastic event, and although NYE might come second to Christmas, we recommend you don’t hang around.

There’ll be glitz, glamour, dancing, drinks and food – what’s not to love? Bring in the near year in style amongst friends and family!

 

Christmas at The Spa

The festive time of year provides the perfect chance to treat yourself or someone you care about to a treatment or product from our luxurious spa.

As usual, we have a fantastic monthly offer for you to make the most of. Our December Treatment of the Month is the wonderful ELEMIS Couture Touch Face & Body Treatment for 60-minutes. Reduced to £40 from £60. Forget about the hectic Christmas shops and take a much-deserved break with us!

Our product of the month this December is perfect for that irksome winter skin. Welcome the ELEMIS Skin Buff for just £20, reduced from £28.50 – On a side note, this product also makes an excellent Christmas present!

 

The Silver Bay Christmas and NYE newsletter

Christmas at Silver Bay wouldn’t be complete without our activities. Of course, there’ll be festive sessions galore – including Christmas Decorations and Christmas Crafts that everyone will love. Supervised Gym and Supervised Activities will be back at the spa if your health and fitness regime is on the agenda, as will the ever-popular adult-only swim.

For the full newsletter please take a look below.

Christmas 2017

As current owners know, we close the village down at the beginning of the new year. We’ll be closed between the 4th of January – 12 of February, and should you need us in the meantime, our reception team will still be on hand 7-days a week between 9am and 3pm.

Finally, we’d just like to take the chance to wish everyone a fantastic Christmas and all the best for the new year!

Yet again, another exceptional half-term was to be had last week here at Silver Bay Holiday Village. Whether it was the spooky themed Busy Bayer activities, or the night everyone had been waiting for, our annual Halloween party, it was a week to remember!

Busy Bayers

It was another action packed half-term for our little Busy Bayers! Of course, with Halloween swift on our heels, it was only prudent that our activities took on a spooky twist. Featuring Spooky Crafts, Disgusting Baking and Slime & Potions, attendance was fantastic,and everyone had a fun-filled break! If you have any pictures of your child’s creations, be sure to share them with us on Facebook.

Our spa also hosted an exciting half-term schedule with the return of Indoor Kayaking and Scuba Diving. We love offering children the chance to practice these skills in the safety of our own pool, and they love it, too.

Halloween Party 2017

No October half-term is complete without the sensational Silver Bay Halloween Party. A lodge owner favourite, this year’s affair did not disappoint. Guests were welcomed to the party on Saturday the 28th of October after a day of hard work put in by our team. We’d just like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who was involved in making the party a success – your efforts are truly appreciated!

Upon arrival, we snapped photos of everyone’s ghoulish costumes. You can find the whole collection of snaps over on Facebook, but we have to say the two below are some of our favourites! An excellent Halloween- themed buffet was laid on courtesy of our incredible Deck House staff, and of course there was lots of dancing and fun on the dance floor.

The Deck House Autumn Menu

A new season = a brand new Deck House menu. Our sensational team have put together a menu of delectable treats that will make choosing a favourite impossible.

Using the very best of local ingredients, such as meat from local butchers and breads from local bakeries, we provide only the very best of the best when it comes to Anglesey cuisine.

This season, why not sample our BBQ Chicken Wings, our Homemade Haddock and Prawn Fish Cake, or perhaps our pasta or fish of the day? We also cater to vegetarians, and have some gluten free options too, including our sensation GF sticky toffee pudding. You can book a table for you and your family or friends on 01407 860 860.

Lost Monkey

Finally, we found a lost monkey comforter in one of our show homes. If you recognise this little guy, be sure to get in touch! We want to return him to his rightful owner.

Silver Bay 2017

As we look towards the end of the year, the fun at Silver Bay is far from slowing down. Stay tuned for more details about our annual Christmas and NYE parties, and also our Spa offers for December.

Here’s to an incredible end to 2017! We hope to see you there.

The days may be getting longer, the weather may be getting colder, but Silver Bay is becoming more exciting as the seasons change. With a whole host of activities to keep you and your family entertained this half term in Anglesey, we wave goodbye to a fantastic, eventful summer and welcome this time of the year with arms wide open.

With Halloween fast approaching, the kids breaking up for half term, and the season fully kicking in with a vibrant change of colour around Silver Bay – take a look at what we have on offer for you this half-term.

Busy Bayers

Silver Bay wouldn’t be the same without our Busy Bayers, which is why we’ve dedicated engaging & educational sessions to keep them entertained! To get them in the true spirit of harvest, our friendly team will be running arts and crafts, seed bomb making, halloween decorations and face painting to name a few. Your Busy Bayers will have jam-packed days of fun while making new friends along the way!

Studio & Gym

Silver Bay is the perfect place to let your hair down and relax, so it’s only natural that you might indulge a little too much! Don’t worry, our gym & studio will help you burn off all those calories from last night’s Beef Burger at the Deck House. Planned activities include: spinning, supervised gym sessions, pilates and legs, bums and tums. The Spa at Silver Bay is open until 19:30 everyday, except on Saturdays and Sundays when it closes at 18:00.

Swimming Pool

Our indoor pool is the perfect space for families to relax and learn new aquatic techniques this half term in Anglesey. We have a range of activities that cater to all ages from the young adventurer to the laid-back parent. Such activities include indoor kayaking and scuba diving, perfect for children to learn lifelong skills and craft memories they’ll never forget. If you’re not a keen explorer, however, and would rather kick back and relax in and around the pool, then join us for adult swimming for the first hour of the day for a quick dip.

Halloween Party

Hosted at the Deck House, our annual Halloween Party will be commencing on Saturday 28th October with a ghoulishly good line up in store. For only £8.50 (children £6.50, Under 3’s free) there will be face painting and spooky art for your young werewolves and witches to enjoy!

We also want to see your best carved pumpkin on the night, with last year’s competition going down a storm. And when all the revelries have finished, get on your dancing shoes and show the world how well you know Michael Jackson’s Thriller dance!

Want to join in with the fun this half term in Anglesey? Take a look here at our eBrochure, or give us a call on 01407 860 860 to speak to our friendly team.

The Silver Bay Summer Roundup 2017

 


SilverBay-Luxury-Holiday-Village-Anglesey_Summer-Party_127.jpg

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!”

children performer

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.”

buffet food

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!
