We’ve rounded up some of our top Easter activities for you to enjoy during your stay – don’t forget to pick up a sweet Easter treat on your way back to your Cotswold bolthole. Once you’ve discovered our things to do Easter weekend, you can view all our Cotswold Easter breaks and property availability.

 

Lambing & Kidding at Adam Henson’s Cotswold Farm Park

From 14 February to the 24 April, bring your little ones to meet the new-born lambs to celebrate this lambing season and the return of Spring.  Not forgetting the goats, who are also due to give birth in the Animal Barn – they’re also hoping to welcome some piglets and guinea pigs over the next few months! You can learn all about the new additions to Animal Barn at their daily lambing talks. Tickets to the Adam Henson’s Cotswold Farm Park are available here.

 

A Cracking Easter at Birdland

You’re in for a cracking day out with the range of Easter activities taking place at Birdland from the 1-23 April! Head down to look at the eggs in the hatchery and with a touch of luck, you may see one of the chicks make their entry into the world. There’s also an Easter Challenge Quiz featuring an Easter egg hunt along an Easter trail – fun for all the family!

 

Spring Walks Highgrove Gardens

What’s one of our favourite things that marks the start of warmer days? Daffodils of course! There’s no better place to view carpets of daffodils than at Highgrove Gardens. Soak up the Spring sunshine with a Spring walking tour around the grounds to learn how HRH Prince Charles has created each garden with an array of seasonal buds.

Easter at Sudeley Castle

From 6-28 April, explore the castle rooms and hunt for Easter chicks hidden around Sudeley castle. We’d recommend visiting between 13-22 April, as that’s when a giant Easter egg trail will be taking place around the castle’s stunning gardens. If you’re visiting over Easter weekend, you’ll have the opportunity to take part in egg-citing arts and crafts – perfect for the little ones!

 

Easter Eggstravaganza at Over Farm

If you’re visiting the Cotswolds with small children (2-8 years of age), the Easter Eggstravaganza is the perfect day out! Taking place from the 9-23 April, you’ll be able to meet the Easter Bunny and explore the farm on an Easter egg hunt. You’ll also have plenty of time to play afterwards in their brand-new Barnyard play area. Immerse yourself in country life by taking a ride on a tractor and looking at the baby lambs! Tickets are available here, and each ticket includes a chocolate egg to take home with you.

Egg Hunt at Dyrham Park

 

Easter Egg Hunt at Dyrham Park

One of the best times to explore the natural world is during Springtime.

Whilst on your way round, there are 10 activities to take part in including building birds nests and playing hide and seek.
