2017 has been an eventful year for us here at Silver Bay Holiday Village and before we start looking forward to what 2018 has to bring, we thought we’d take a look back on the year. Take a look at our roundup video below and keep reading to find out more.
We love a good party and 2017 was no exception…
We started off the summer season with our annual summer party in The Deck House Restaurant with something to keep all ages entertained. Mr Trix’s magic show entertained the children while our lodge owners caught up with friends, old and new, in the bar. The night was topped off with Silver Bay Summer Party favourites, Runaway Babies, playing a medley of pop classics.
For October half term we welcomed owners back for our Halloween party and this year did not disappoint. We were very impressed with the costumes this year; you can take a look at the whole collection of snaps over on our Facebook page. Here’s one to give you a taste:
December isn’t complete without a Christmas party. We were joined by owners, family and friends for a night of games, dancing and a visit from Santa! You can find out more and take a look at our photos from the night over in our Christmas round up blog.
To top off a fabulous year, we hosted our annual New Year’s Eve party. The theme in 2017 was the 80s so we expected some big hairdos and over-the-top costumes – we were not disappointed! We were joined by Freddie Mercury and the cast of Top Gun, to name a few, for a night of dancing, food and drink. You can take a look at all the costumes here but here’s one of our favourites – we especially love the mohawks!
We like to make sure we’ve got a jam-packed schedule over the holidays for our owners and Busy Bayers, from wool club and toasting marshmallows to adult only swims and spinning classes.
Over the Easter holidays our Busy Bayers were spoilt for choice with arts and crafts, baking and an Easter egg hunt.
During the summer we launched our #SaveTheBees scheme and we now have two colonies of honey bees on site; keep an eye out later this year for our very own supply of honey!
The summer saw the return of Beach Mudder where our owners battled once more to take the crown – well done again to the Psycho Unicorns! We also hosted our annual sandcastle competition and fishing competition.
New faces and places
We expanded our team this year to carry on providing a top notch service to our lodge owners. In February, we welcomed Katherine and Jacqueline to the Owner’s Services team and in May we welcomed talented pastry chef, Karan, to help elevate The Deck House menu to the next level.
We listened to your feedback and in May we launched the Chill Out Zone for teens, complete with a pool table, television, Wii, wifi and games.
For those who dreamt of owning a holiday home but wanted to visit first we opened our gates at various points throughout the year for visitors to explore our stunning lodges and facilities, accompanied by champagne and nibbles. Keep an eye out for open day dates in 2018!
In July we were thrilled to be presented a Seaside Award from Keep Wales Tidy as part of the Wales Coast Awards in recognition of Silver Bay Beach’s tidy and well-tended coast and waters. Make sure to keep sharing your beautiful beach images on Instagram with the hashtag #SilverBayBeach and we’ll feature the best ones on our Instagram page.
2017 was a busy year and we’ve only just scratched the surface of the events and activities that took place, you can read about these in more detail on our blog page.

New Year’s Eve Party

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!
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:
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.

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
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!
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!
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!
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.
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!
