Every August we invite all of our holiday village residents to come together and celebrate Summer in style at the annual Silver Bay Summer Party.

This year was one of our best events to date thanks to our stunning new Deck House facilities, and it was fantastic to see the smiling faces of our residents having a wonderful night with their friends and loved ones!

Alongside drinks and food, the party atmosphere quickly became contagious thanks to our cover band The Runaway Babies. It was impossible not to hit the dance floor when the band took to the stage, which you’ll soon see from our videos and photos below!

We’re glad everyone had such a superb night in our brand new refurbished restaurant, lounge, and bar. We’re already thinking about how we can top it next year! But for now, why not see if you and your family made the video below?

If you’d like to find out more about The Runaway Babies take a look at the video below or visit their website here.

Now that the Summer party is over, we’re looking forwards to remaining celebrations during 2016.

As usual, our Halloween party will be happening in October, and the little ones will get the chance to don their very best fancy dress gear. As well as this, Father Christmas will be making his annual visit towards the end of November. Word down the grapevine is that he can’t wait to see our new refurbishment!

Finally, we have the hugely popular New Year’s Eve party scheduled in at the end of December. We’ll be celebrating in style once more and bringing the new year in for the first time in the brand new Deck House.

If you think you and your family would fit right in at the Silver Bay parties, and would love the chance to own a lodge, then why not download our free eBrochure right here?

2015 certainly went out with a bang at Silver Bay, and our residents came together for a NYE party to remember!

Alongside the Hollywood theme, guests had the option of dressing up (which we were glad to see some people did!), and everyone enjoyed drinks, food and a party that attendees of all ages thoroughly enjoyed.

Take a look at the video montage below.

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.

new-years-eve-anglesey-silver-bay-holiday-village-1280x853.jpg

Christmas day is the event we spend most of December planning. Whether it’s organising presents or planning what we need to buy for the gorgeous Christmas roast, we often have little time to think about anything else.

But what about New Year’s Eve?

This magical party night certainly ensures that everyone leaves with a sense of optimism by the fresh start offered by the New Year.

So with that in mind, we’ve put together and exciting list of everything you need to do to ensure you have the best New Year’s Eve ever in your luxury lodge here at Silver Bay – and also so that you can welcome 2016 with open, happy arms.

 

1. Dress up

Everyone loves donning their glad rags, and we’re no different here at Silver Bay. New Year’s Eve is a great chance to bring in 2016 looking and feeling your best, so invest in that extra special dress or suit and ensure you have a lovely night!

 

2. Have your own pre-party in your luxury lodge

Whether you’re planning on going to the annual Silver Bay New Year’s eve party, or perhaps have to stay back at the holiday lodge with very young children, a pre-party can be a great way to celebrate the New Year without having to stay up extra late.

Invest in party poppers, put out a few nibbles and get the music flowing. New Year’s Eve can be celebrated before midnight if you’d like – it’s up to you!

 

3. Attend Silver Bay’s New Year’s Eve Party

Every year we host our annual Silver Bay New Year’s Eve Party – and this year is no different! Come together with the other Silver Bay residents as we throw a party to remember once more.

The best thing about our event is that we ensure the kids are also entertained. This frees you up to relax too, and ensures everyone in your party has an exciting New Year’s Eve.

We certainly hope we’ll be seeing you there!

 

4. Come up with some party games

When you’re all gathered around the table with drinks and nibbles in hand, it can be a great idea to come up with your own party games.

Card games are something everyone can enjoy. Everything from Gin Rummy through to a simple game of snap are great games that will keep all the family entertained.

If you don’t have any cards, then a simple piece of paper and pen can help create a great game of Who Am I? All you need to do is get everyone person in your group to write down a name of a famous person, and then pass this name to the person next to them. You have to then stick it on your head and guess who you are by taking it in turns asking yes and no questions.

It’s hours of fun!

5. Pace yourself

If you are drinking then it’s also worth making sure you get plenty of water in your system too! The last thing you want is to miss the New Year countdown because you fell asleep before it happened! Take it slow and and pace yourself to ensure you have the best evening possible.

 

6. Get all the family together for the big countdown

One of the best parts of New Year’s Eve is, of course, the final countdown to the New Year’s Day. Having all the family round is a key part of this because of course everyone shares hugs and wishes everyone the best.

When the clock hits midnight, pop on Auld Lang Syne, hold hands and sing along together. It’s one of those extra special moments when you get to really show your loved ones how much you appreciate them, and the usually show it in return, so don’t miss out.

 

New Year’s Eve 2015/2016 at Silver Bay

We had an amazing New Year’s Eve at Silver Bay this year, and we have some wonderful images to match too!

Everyone had a fantastic evening, and our Hollywood fancy dress theme was certainly a success!

We can’t wait for the next Silver Bay party that will see our residents come together for a smashingly good time – and we hope to see you there too!

Investing in a UK holiday home can be a great way to start 2016 with a bang. Feel free to explore our bespoke lodges that are sure to impress, and give our friendly team a call if you have any questions or queries.
