As many of our luxury home residents will be joining us over the Easter holidays we’re sure those with children will be participating in some of our own Silver Bay kids’ events around the Easter weekend; however there is still a wide variety of exciting, child-friendly Easter activities all over the island of Anglesey to enjoy!
Many of Anglesey’s attractions will be hosting egg hunts, such as the National Trust’s Plas Newydd. Children can participate in their annual egg hunt for £2 from the 3rd – 6th April between 11am and 3.30pm, and adults can enjoy the beautiful mansion and extensive gardens set on the shores of the Menai Strait. With options for a woodland and marine walk to explore, in addition to an adventure playground and tree house for the kids, Plas Newydd will keep everyone entertained on an Easter day out. Garden only tickets are £8.10 for adults and £4.10 for children over 5.
For children who are farm, butterfly or bug enthusiasts, Pili Palas Nature World near the Menai bridge is the place to be. Egg hunts will be taking place daily in in the weeks before and after Easter, between 10am and 5.30pm with prizes for lucky winners. There are also daily bush tucker trials and animal handling activities between 11am and 4pm, making this an ideal fun-filled day for children with an interest in wildlife. Adult entry is £7.95 and £7.25 for children aged 3-16.
Young wannabe farmers won’t want to miss out on Foel Farm park, where the whole family can experience a real working farm, with lots of opportunities for interaction with the animals in addition to tractor and trailer rides. For those who just can’t get enough of the Easter chocolate, Foel Farm even has a chocolate workshop for everyone to watch chocolates being made. Their annual Easter egg hunt takes place this year on the 5th April at 1pm; the likely presence of lambs and other baby animals will complete the Easter theme! Entry is £6.95 for adults and £5.95 for children aged 3+.
Those with an interest in history and medieval castles will want to get in on the activities at Beaumaris Castle, where the medieval household are winding back the clock to the times of Edward I from 3rd – 6th April. There is another Easter egg hunt taking place in the castle, 11am – 4pm on the 5th April; so if you fancy a day stepping back in time, with stunning views of Snowdonia and the Menai Straits, this is the castle for you. The egg trails on Easter Sunday are £5.25 for adults and £3.90 for under 16’s, and the medieval days are £4.50 for adults and £3.40 for under 16’s.
The beautiful town of Rhosneigr is only a 25 minute drive from Silver bay, home to The Oyster Catcher. This is a beautiful restaurant situated with an unobstructed view of the Irish sea, that is also hosting its very own Easter egg hunt which will be £1 starting 10.15am on 5th April; there will also be a best bonnet competition for kids to show off creative flair and optional fancy dress! So while the children are running around enjoying the trail, adults can sit down for a drink in one of the beach shacks overlooking the sea or experience a meal prepared by the cadets in the chef’s academy – a delicious feast guaranteed!
With the weather looking like rain will be holding off from the Rhoscolyn area during the Easter period, fingers crossed for some sun so everyone can take in some of the spring fresh air! However you choose to spend your Easter break, we wish you a happy Easter from all of us at Silver Bay!
