There’s nothing quite like visiting the Spa at Silver Bay to escape from the whirlwind of everyday life.

Our spa is open to both lodge owners and country club members, and the Spa at Silver Bay will provide you with the opportunity to find yourself through relaxation and peaceful serenity.

Below we’ve explored just a few of our Spa highlights, so if you’ve been looking a calming space on the Isle of Anglesey, you’re in for a treat.

OUR POOL

A standout feature of our Spa is, of course, our pool. Coming in at 15.5 metres longs, these tranquil waters offer the chance to swim, relax and if you want to, just float. There’s even a special children’s splash area at the side to encourage a more relaxed swimming environment for adults.

No matter what the weather, our pool is there to provide you with a water sanctuary to back crawl, front crawl, maybe even doggy paddle – however you swim and get those muscles moving, there’ll be a home for it in our pool.

And of course, swimming has a variety of benefits on the body and mind. According to Coach Magazine, water is 12 times denser than air, so the resistance is great for muscle toning. As well as this, the NHS claim that swimming can ‘reduce the risk of chronic illnesses […] boost your mood and keep your weight under control’ – meaning that some time in the pool has the ability to alter multiple aspects of your life for the better.

JACUZZI, SAUNA AND STEAM ROOM

As the bubbles float around you and the warm, soothing waters banish any unwanted worries, your time in the jacuzzi at our spa is well spent. And if the hot bath-like experience isn’t for you, we also have a sauna and a steam room.

Known for their many skin and health benefits, these spa staples allow you to shut out the world and become one with the heat as it ripples softly along your skin.

Jacuzzis are favoured for their ability to ease muscle pain, reduce stress and also improve circulation according tolivestrong.com, who also discuss the ever-popular saunas stating that the ‘effect on the body is similar to doing mild exercise’ – as well as also improving circulation.

Finally, a steam room is also extremely beneficial on the body and mind. Health Fitness Revolution discuss this on their website, claiming that they relieve tension, reduce stress, clear your skin and much more.

FITNESS SUITE

Seek that adrenaline high with an hour or two in our stunning fitness suite. Filled with top of the range technology, from exercise bikes to treadmills and weights, whatever your fitness routine we’ll have the items you need to fulfill it.

We have a range of classes available including the ever-popular ‘Spinning’, favoured for its ability to quickly burn calories and reduce stress – and we can also over Personal Training programs alongside our expert fitness instructors.

Exercise has both psychological and physical benefits, the NHS website states that exercise can reduce the risk of major illnesses such as heart disease and cancer by up to 50%. They also go on to say that research has shown that exercise boosts self-esteem, your mood and also your sleep quality and energy levels. What’s not to like?

And why not treat yourself to a wonderful treatment after or some time in the jacuzzi? We’re certain you’ll have earnt it!

FACIALS

A facial is exactly what a person needs to release all those negative feelings and reach optimum relaxation. Our Pro-Collagen Quartz Lift Facial has been clinically proven to reduce wrinkles by up to 94% and improve your skin firmness by 57% – all just after one, single treatment.

A favourite with spa-goers already, the facial features both Padina Pavonica and red coral which pumps out the fine lines on your face. It’s the perfect, refreshing facial that will leave your skin looking more youthful.

NAIL TREATMENTS

Go into the Spa at Silver Bay feeling drab and un-groomed and come out looking like a million bucks!

Yes, whether it’s a quick shape and tidy, a full on set of acrylics or a bold, neon pedi, the Spa at Silver Bay will have the power to transform your nails, and lift your mood.

One of our clients’ favourites are Shellac Nails. They offer a glamorous statement and are popular with lots of our luxury lodge owners at Silver Bay. Half gel and half nail polish, these nails are a stylish fashion statement that anyone who’s anyone has. Match this alongside our manicure treatment and those hard working hands that we so often neglect will be lavished in luxury.

Leave your hands feeling good as new, and revel in being the envy of the park, with your Shellac treatment that can be any colour from bright pink to a neutral nude – go on, treat yourself!

AROMATHERAPY

Aromatherapy is a word we’re likely all familiar, but some still people aren’t quite sure what it exactly is – and that’s okay. Focussing on naturally extracted oils, this therapy type helps to promote a healthy mind and body.

Oils are used to give you a relaxing massage, and the therapy is also sometimes used to treat anxiety and depression according to bupa.co.uk. So for a relaxing afternoon that’s going to improve your state of mind, an Aromatherapy treatment could be the perfect choice for you.

SWEDISH BODY MASSAGE

Few do massages as well as the Swedish, so it’s no surprise that these amazing treatments are popular across the world. Used to relax the entire body, Swedish Massages are the perfect massage for first timers at the Spa, and tend to be suited to everyone. It’s up to you to let your therapist know the intensity you’d like during the treatment, they can be both rough or soft, making it easy to enjoy a massage experience suited to your taste.

There are a range of massage techniques used, with Effleurage being the one favoured with according to treatwell.com. This will see your massage therapist use their hands to rub your muscles with the aim to push blood in the direction of your heart. You can also point our problem areas with aches and pains if you’d like your therapist to focus on a certain area where you’ve been having issues.

Our Swedish treatments tend to last 55 minutes. However, we also offer a back, neck and shoulder package that lasts 25 minute. Treatwell.com also claim that this is one the most popular massage options due to the fact that people tend to be tight in these areas after sitting at a computer all day.

THE SPA AT SILVER BAY

Have we tempted you to treat yourself? Relaxation has so many physical and psychological benefits, and it’s incredibly important to take some time to yourself and recharge for a healthier frame of mind.

On the 31st of December, The Deck House was transformed into a glamorous speakeasy, brimming with alluring 1920s chic ready to bring in the new year!

It was a lively night full of excitement and celebration, the atmosphere was electric – as was the fancy dress effort from every single lodge-owner here at Silver Bay Holiday Village. The party was kicked off by a stand-out clown who awed and inspired children and adults alike with his magic – he even had a live, fluffy rabbit with him (much to the delight of our party goers)!

After that, dinner was served and featured a range of delectable treats prepared by our amazing chefs, and once stomachs were full, The Runaway Babies made their much-anticipated return and took to The Deck House stage.

The last evening of 2016 was danced away and the new year was welcomed in with warmth and cheer – setting the tone for what will be a wonderful year here at Silver Bay Holiday Village.

It was a delight to host such a great night had by all, and we can’t wait to do it again with our annual summer party later on this year!

Below you’ll find a video of the evening’s antics. Why not see if you and your loved ones made it below? There were some fantastic costumes on the night that deserve to be appreciated time and time again.

If you’d like to find out more about life at Silver Bay Holiday Village and how you could become the owner of your very own haven on Anglesey, call Jamie Hughes, General Manager, today on 01407 860 860. You can also view our free eBrochure here.

Silver-Bay-Holiday-Village-Taster-Weekend-Sian-Ediss.png

We invited Sian and her family for a taster weekend at Silver Bay and Sian documented her stay. Here’s her round-up of her Silver Bay experience. If you’re a prospective owner, it’s well worth a read…

Silver Bay Holiday Village was recommended to us by several friends – we were looking for a UK weekend break close to home in Manchester, where we could combine a bit of luxury with beautiful surroundings, activities and relaxation. I checked out the Silver Bay website and was immediately drawn to the stunning beauty of Anglesey, and the impressive look and layout of Silver Bay

Sian Ediss and her family on a taster weekend

Silver Bay offer a range of luxury lodge accommodation for ownership all within its beautiful location, and we were lucky enough to be offered a ‘taster weekend’, something which is available to all prospective lodge owners. The award-winning holiday village has numerous facilities including The Deck House restaurant, bar and lounge, ‘Busy Bayers’ children’s club and adventure play park, a secluded forest, beach and boat park, leisure complex including fitness centre, indoor swimming pool, sauna, jacuzzi and steam room and even a beauty salon.

We arrived at the tail-end of the autumn half-term holidays and there were still plenty of families enjoying their break. I was really impressed by the volume of activities on offer for children at the ‘Busy Bayers Club’. Activities range from creative tasks such as pottery painting, to outdoors activities such as ‘Wild Survivors’ coast and forest club and sports such as kayaking, water polo and ‘Try Scuba’. I also thought it was great that there was children’s entertainment every evening such as Movie Night and quizzes – perfect for when the grown-ups want to relax in The Deck House while children hang out in the nearby Busy Bayers area.

Luxurious Accommodation

There were three of us (myself, my boyfriend and my mum) and our accommodation was lovely. Our luxury lodge had 2 bedrooms, a bathroom, a fully-equipped kitchen, dining area and living room. All the lodges at Silver Bay also have central heating which we were hugely grateful for in the midst of November. Our comfortable dwelling was more than big enough for the 3 of us, with great-sized rooms, and our own outside area. If the weather had been warmer, we would have thoroughly enjoyed the outside decking and seating, but we only used this for a rather bracing viewpoint for Bonfire Night fireworks. There were beautiful views from our lodge spanning across the holiday village. We could see all around us the beautiful environment – lush greenery, wildlife, and rolling hills in the distance. Our lodge didn’t overlook the private beach, but we were less than 5-minutes away for brisk morning walks along the coast.

Award-Winning Grounds and Secluded Beach

On our first day, after a short 2.5-hour drive and a shop at the local supermarket,  we were there for 12.30pm. We unloaded the car and set-up our home for the next four days and then wrapped up and headed out for an explore. Silver Bay has recently won a Gold Standard David Bellamy Award for its contribution and preservation to the park’s wildlife. The love and care that the people put into the grounds and holiday park are clear to see. There were recently planted shrubs and trees around the children’s adventure play park area (some planted by the ‘Busy Bayers’ themselves!) and there was not a spot of litter in sight.

The secluded Green Coast Award-Winning beach is a sight to behold. The beautiful white sands are magnificently set against the backdrop of the Snowdonia mountains. The brisk November waves crashing on the sand and salty sea breeze made us feel a million miles away from the racing pace of Manchester, and we instantly felt a sense of relaxation and ease. We strolled along the coast and explored the rock pools and collected a few shells before we continued our adventure up to Silver Bay’s woodland and followed the path over some fields and back to the park. It was a lovely few hours to work up an appetite for an early dinner we planned in The Deck House.

The Deck House Restaurant

After a leisurely couple of hours back at the lodge, we wandered over to The Deck House for 6 pm. We had heard wonderful reviews about Lee the Head Chef and his passion for locally sourced ingredients so we were very excited to sample The Deck House winter menu for ourselves. We were greeted by huge smiles from the waiting on team and were directed to our table for 3 next to the bi-fold windows. Although it was dark, it was still lovely to look out over flickering lights and the nightscape across the holiday park. The atmosphere in The Deck House was homely and comfortable. A few families with children were wrapping up their evening meals, and others were arriving in groups to settle in for the eve. There was even a section in the lounge where football fans could watch the Man Utd match; this was far enough away so not to disturb the ambience of the dining area but close enough so families felt all under one roof.

Andrew dining at the deck house

After much deliberation and pondering, we ordered our starters, lamb koftas (x2) and mushroom and stilton melt and then waited in anticipation for our main course of steak, chips and all the trimmings (x2) and a generous fish and chips – perfect fodder after our brisk walk earlier.

Fish and chips at The Deck House restaurant

The service was prompt and caring, and every measure was taken to ensure we were well fed, watered and comfortable. We were too full for pudding, but the lovely waitress insisted that we tried the homemade chocolate brownie and icecream and we weren’t disappointed!

We chatted away for a while amongst ourselves and with some seasoned ‘Silver Bayers’ and enjoyed a few more rounds of drinks before calling it a night – we had a busy day in store for day 2 after all!

The Spa and Beauty at Silver Bay

The jacuzzi and pool at Silver Bay

After a deep sleep, we were set for a morning of relaxation and beautify-ing at the Spa at Silver Bay. We’d booked our appointments beforehand with team leader, Charlotte. Charlotte was excellent when advising on recommended treatments for all three of us, and our needs were carefully assessed beforehand.

Andrew and myself were set up on the couple’s therapy room, and my mum had a room to herself, each of us had our own personal therapist who delivered the expert treatments. The Spa at Silver Bay is an advocate for ELEMIS products. ELEMIS therapists are renowned for harnessing the power of nature and science to perform treatments that genuinely transform your skin and enhance wellbeing. The experience was exceptional, and we were very impressed with the physical and mental improvement after just 1.5-hours of care.

ELEMIS creams and products at Silver Bay

I requested the Swedish back, neck, and shoulder massage (£30, 25 minutes) and the Pro-Radiance Superfood facial (£60, 1 hour). Soothing music and aromatherapy filled the treatment room, and we began with the facial. Rich in superfoods, vitamins and minerals, the Pro-Radiance facial revealed a glow to rival a week in St. Tropez! The massage followed and melted my aches and tensions away. I spend most of my time at a computer, and this has resulted in tension in my neck and shoulders. Charlotte was quick to discover this and worked her magic to erase what felt like a lifetime of tightness. I felt like a floaty, floppy, ball of happiness after my treatments and I can’t thank Charlotte and the team enough for their expertise and warm welcome.

Andrew enjoyed the Men’s High-Performance Skin Energiser facial (£60, 1 hour) and discovered the relaxation and decadence of beauty treatments. Having never experienced this kind of treatment before, he was quietly happy that we were in the couple’s room together, but he was soon to forget I was there as he floated away in a sea of calm. My mum (who has had a lifelong love for beauty treatments) had the Pro-Collagen Quartz Lift Facial and the Full-Body Aromatherapy Massage (£50, 55 minutes). This bespoke treatment harnessed the wellness benefits of aromatherapy as well as tailored concentration on the body’s most needed areas for attention. My mum was elated after both treatments – we all were – as you can see from the cheeky post-treatment selfie below…

Exploring Anglesey

The weekend was a cultural adventure with visits to South Stack RSPB reserve and also chasing the sunset along the coast. We lunched at the Sea Shanty Cafe on Trearddur Bay and travelled up to the surfer town, Rhosneigr, for Anglesey’s most-renowned fish and chips at Scarlett’s Fish and Chip Bar – we weren’t disappointed! Anglesey is an island that holds a special place in the hearts of those who have experienced it. Filled with charm, history and a unique blend of clear, beautiful coast and lush rolling hills and countryside, Anglesey is a UK staycation destination second to none.

Whether you’re a family with young children, a couple looking for a romantic escape, or a group of friends or family, I would wholeheartedly recommend that you explore this retreat on your doorstep. Being just over 2-hours from most hubs in the North West makes Anglesey an easy and quick retreat. If you’re searching for an ideal base, look no further than Silver Bay Holiday Village.

Escape to Silver Bay Holiday Village

All in all, I believe that Silver Bay is the ultimate UK holiday destination – because it’s situated on the glorious Isle of Anglesey, because the activities are plentiful, the facilities are excellent, and you have so much beautiful outdoors to explore. By the end of our stay, we felt revived and happy in the fact that we had an unforgettable experience that we’ll reminisce over for many years to come.

The Silver Bay team are really helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. A special thank you to Leah the manager at The Deck House, Charlotte in the Spa, Heidi and the reception team and park managers Jamie and Chris for the warmest of welcomes.

If you’re searching for a perfect UK family escape, look no further than Silver Bay.

If you’ve been inspired to experience the luxury holiday park lifestyle for yourself, please call Jamie Hughes on 01407 860 111 to arrange your visit.

We’ve just waved farewell to the most spooktastic time of year – Halloween! Just like previous years, we held a spine-tingling night to remember at The Deck House for all of our Silver Bayer’s to enjoy.

As usual, our Silver Bay families did themselves proud and turned up on mass wearing some of their very best ghoulish outfits! We’ve put together a video below brimming with terrifying snapshots from the night. Is there anyone you recognise there? Perhaps you even make an appearance yourself!

We strive to give our lodge-owners a truly unique holiday experience here on the Isle of Anglesey. So let’s dive in and explore the secrets of what life at Silver Bay is all about.

1. The Reef Edge Holiday Lodge

Escaping the hustle and bustle of everyday living has never been easier (and essential) than with your own holiday lodge. A spacious open-plan layout, light fixtures, and dreamy full-height panoramic lodge doors all create a relaxing experience.

And with a magnificent view of the Snowdonia Mountains and Anglesey, waking up in the morning has never been easier at the Reef Edge Holiday Lodge.

2. Children’s Activities

Keeping the children entertained can sometimes be a difficult task, but that’s where our children’s activities come in! Whether it’s orienteering trips in local woodland or participating in our sandcastle competitions, there’s something to bring all the family together.

Tree planting with the children at Silver Bay Holiday Village

To give you a feel of what adventures we get up to at Silver Bay, here’s an example. We’ve been creating a new orchard area and making raised herb planters with Wonderwoods. Alongside Wonderwoods, our lodge owners have also been planting some new trees with our Groundskeeper Pierce. You can sneak a peek at more of what our lodge owners get up to on our Facebook page.

Owning a holiday home at Silver Bay doesn’t stop with purchasing the property itself. There are an abundance of activities to get involved with that you and your family don’t want to miss out on.

3. Environment

We all love a trip to the beach. The smell of the sea evokes a sense of nostalgia for many of us and what better way to indulge yourself than by having access to your very own award-winning private beach whenever you want?

The Silver Bay beach has been awarded the Green Coast Award which just goes to show that we know exactly how to treat and preserve our environment.

We’re also delighted to say that recently we’ve been awarded Gold in the David Bellamy Awards. We’ve been awarded this for protecting and enhancing the beautiful natural area of Silver Bay and we couldn’t be happier that our efforts have been noticed. We’re continually inspired by the dreamy area of Silver Bay and, as such, we’ve recently begun work on our very own edible garden containing soft fruits and kitchen herbs. We’re so pleased with the results so far, and supplying our own kitchen with our own home-grown supplies will be a lovely treat.

4. Spa and Leisure Facilities

You’ll be delighted to hear that relaxation is key to the Silver Bay experience, which is exactly why we’ve recently opened our own luxury spa and leisure facilities.

Whether it’s a dip in the pool, a bespoke massage or a trip to the sauna, our lodge-owners love making use of our quiet and serene spa. We also stock luxury Elemis products at the Silver Bay spa and if you’re searching for the perfect present for that special someone, we have just the treat.

5. The Deck House: Restaurant, Bar and Lounge

Enjoy fantastic food and great company at our on-site Deck House. At the Deck House, you’ll experience a myriad of different culinary delights, as well as some magnificent views of the Snowdonia mountains.

Move between the spaces of our lounge, restaurant, bar and adult-only area in the Farmhouse upstairs for a truly catered experience to your needs.

Silver Bay Holiday Village wins GOLD in the David Bellamy Awards 2016! Our lodge owners may have noticed a few changes around our luxury holiday park lately, and that’s because we’ve been striving to be recognised for the prestigious David Bellamy award!

The David Bellamy Awards are offered to holiday parks across the country that protect and enhance their beautiful natural environment – and that’s precisely what we’ve been aiming for here on Anglesey.

We’ve been planting a diverse mix of native trees, hedging, wildflowers and traditional Welsh Fruit Trees around our park.

However, that’s not all. We’ve also created a native wildflower meadow for residents to enjoy, and we’re in the process of setting up a magnificent edible garden containing soft fruit and kitchen herbs. Our main aim, of course, has been to protect and build upon our beautiful natural scenery on the park, and the determination of our team has been rewarded and we couldn’t be happier.

The David Bellamy Awards are judged by a team of local wildlife experts who ensure that holiday parks are meeting the following criteria:

  • “Manage their land as a haven for wildlife

  • Reduce their use of energy, water and other resources

  • Reduce, reuse and recycle the waste they produce

  • Support their local communities.”

Commendations are split into three categories, bronze, silver and gold. We’re humbled to have achieved the most prestigious award ‘Gold’ for our contribution!

David Bellamy Awards have been running throughout the UK since 1997. They are one of the longest running green awards in the country, and we’re honoured to have received such prestigious recognition.

What’s been your favourite new addition to the site? Are you happier with a greener holiday village? Let us know your thoughts on Twitter or Facebook.

Any questions or queries about the award or our holiday park in general? Simply give us a call on 01407 860 860 to speak to reception. Our friendly team will be more than happy to offer any assistance.
