Looking for more? Why not read more about day trip to Church Island or some of the best dog walking routes on this island.



As many of you know, crossing the Britannia Bridge is the point at which you relax and look forward to your time on Anglesey. You’ll also have noticed the little church that peeks out from the Menia side of the Strait. Church Island is home to St.Tysilio’s church. It is a beautiful and historic site that attracts visitors from all over the world, and is even still used for weddings. The church has a rich history dating back to the 6th century when it was founded by St. Tysilio, a Welsh saint and son of the King of Powys.

Next time you’re visiting Anglesey, we would highly recommend making a stop on Church Island, in Menai Strait. The secluded island can be accessed through a small causeway from Belgian Promenade (take care at high tide) and is only a 5 minute walk from a public car park.


Explore on foot

You can complete a short circular walk from Menai Bridge to Church island for magnificent views of the Menai Suspension Bridge. This 1.3km walk takes you through a woodland nature reserve and will cross over the causeway taking you round the island’s perimeter. You can get the route here! Keep an eye out for red squirrels, oystercatchers, heroins and seals! 




St. Tysilio Church

The church has undergone several transformations over the centuries, with the current structure dating back to the 15th century. During the warmer months you can usually access St.Tysilio’s church during the day where you can see the original wooden trusses, stained glass windows and intricate carvings.


Whether you’re a nature lover, interested in history, or just looking to explore more of Anglesey, Church Island is a must visit destination.

Introducing Bulmer Leisure

We are very pleased to announce the introduction of Bulmer Leisure, a name that will encompass all of our present and future holiday parks. After more than 30 successful years of Silver Bay Holiday Park and an expansion to the North side of the island in Lligwy, we introduce a name that will uphold the values we want to protect the very most. Any Bulmer Leisure holiday park will be the perfect place for families, couples and friends to have the opportunity to enjoy the stunning scenery of Anglesey from the comfort of our luxury caravans and lodges.

Bulmer Leisure will continue to uphold the same values and family ethos we always have. Creating a real focus on cleaner, environmentally conscious parks and engaging with the local community through employment and partnerships. We have committed to reducing our carbon footprint by 50% by 2030. We are achieving this through improving our on-site practices, creating eco-friendly lodges, and working with our contractors to create a more sustainable supply chain.

Where did the name Bulmer Leisure come from?

You may recognise the name Bulmer from somewhere else. That’s because for three generations, our Holiday Parks have been privately owned by the famous cider making Bulmer family. Building on the Bodior Estate, once used as a family holiday retreat for the Bulmer family, Silver Bay was founded in the 1980’s.

Continuing to use the well known and respected family name, Bulmer Leisure will now encompass both Silver Bay and Woodland Falls holiday parks. Equally luxurious, stylish, comfortable, and the perfect setting to escape life for a while. 

What does this mean for current owners? 

The decking of a a grey lodge This name change will not affect current or future holiday home owners. Bulmer Leisure will remain a privately owned family business, prioritising the needs of our holiday home owners.

The only difference you will find is a few name changes here and there. We can assure that your home away from home will remain the same peaceful escape as always.
