Easter Egg Hunts in the Lake District
With the long weekend at the end of March celebrating Easter, it’s an ideal time for a last minute Spa break in Cumbria. The beautiful landscape is wonderful all year round, so why wait until the summer holidays to enjoy the scenery? Easter Egg Hunts in the Lake District however only come round once a year, so best you get cracking and book your Windermere spa suite!
Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt
In conjunction with the National Trust, Cadbury’s are holding Easter Egg hunts up and down the country. Several of these are taking place in and around Windermere in the Lake District, Cumbria. With walking tours and nature trails throughout the Lakes, it’s the perfect excuse for chocoholics to catch some fresh air.
Giant Spring Trail and Easter Egg Hunt
Brockhole on Windermere offers visitors something for all the family. There are arts and crafts exhibitions, “Wordsworth Wednesdays” and the Brockhole family ramble. If you’re visiting those younger relatives then join in the Giant Spring Trail and Easter Egg Hunt. It’s only £3 to enter and you’re guaranteed a free gift at the end of it.
Dragon Egg Hunt at Lowther Castle
Adults and children alike love the mysterious nature of fire breathing dragons, they also lay some of the best eggs! Join the Dragon Egg Hunt and try one for yourself.
Having been commissioned by William 1st Earl of Lonsdale in 1806, Lowther Castle has certainly stood the test of time. It’s a wonderful piece of architecture, with an interesting exhibition outlining the castle’s history.
Over the course of the Easter weekend though, it’s all about the chocolate! Although that said, the 17th century gardens are usually nice and relaxing. So if you want to escape Penrith’s frantic Easter egg hunt, it’s worth a visit at any time of year.
Where is Peter Rabbit?
Another egg hunt aimed at children, taking place at one of Windermere’s most popular attractions. The author of Peter Rabbit has many strong connections with the Lake District. So much so that the World of Beatrix Potter is only a short walk away from your Windermere spa suite. It may be busy during Easter, but you can still relax back at your hotel.
Create your own Easter Egg hunt!
Easter eggs aren’t just for children and neither are treasure hunts. In fact, Easter Egg hunts in the Lake District don’t even have to go further than your hotel.
If you’ve booked into a boutique hotel suite with private garden, just think of all the hiding places! It’s a fun way to spend some quality time with the one you love.
While your partner takes a dip in your private hot tub, you can start hiding the eggs. Down the side of the sofa in the cinema room, a couple in the garden, another in the fridge. Just be careful that any you hide in the Swedish Hot Room don’t melt!
If you book a Windermere Boutique Spa Suite, you can indulge in as much chocolate as you like while relaxing in your own private hot tub.
