Easter events

Over the Easter holidays we've got lots going on to keep the whole family entertained.

 Race ducks at Montacute House in Somerset, make an Easter bonnet at Trerice, Cornwall, go on a knight's trail at Tyntesfield near Bristol and discover a fairy tale at Glendurgan in Cornwall.

In addition to all these great events you could give geocaching a go, or dust off your walking boots and make the most of the changing season.

Cadbury Easter Egg Trails

Become an Eggsplorer in the South West

Become an Eggsplorer in the South West

We've got Cadbury Easter Egg Trails across the whole south west so your little ones can become great Eggsplorers.

They’ll receive a make-it-yourself pith helmet, a trail journal containing all the clues they need to complete the trail and an Eggsplorer Passport to be stamped along the way. Once they've completed the trail they can claim a Cadbury chocolate Egghead prize.

Double celebration

This year Finch Foundry is celebrating two milestones: 20 years in our care and 200 years since the waterwheels first turned.

You can relive the sights, sounds and even smells of a working foundry, from the heat of the furnaces to the steady hammering of metal on the forge. A visit to the last remaining water-powered forge in England is an opportunity to experience our industrial past in action.

Stay with us

Starting to plan your holidays for this year? Treat yourself to a last-minute stay in one of our award-winning holiday cottages, or plan ahead and book a cosy cottage for a family get together this Easter.

We're dog friendly

Days out can be tricky when you've got a four-legged friend to consider. Of course dogs are part of the family, and many of our places are dog-friendly so you don't need to leave your pooch at home.
