Easter Breaks

Egg-cellent family Easter breaks and holidays...

The Easter school holidays are an ideal time to take the family away to the New Forest, give mum and dad the chance to recharge or to enjoy a staycation amongst some of the UK's best scenery.

Spring and especially the Easter holidays is the perfect time to enjoy a mini staycation! Make the most of the Easter half term and enjoy getting out and exploring all that there is to see and do here in Dorset and Hampshire.

The warmer weather means days can be spent on one of our nearby Dorset beaches building sandcastles, or even going for a swim if you’re brave enough! The New Forest is always full of life during the Easter holidays, so why not take the family to watch the foals and ponies grazing on the fresh spring grass.

Most local attractions, such as Paultons Park, Peppa Pig World, and Marwell Zoo open once again and host fantastic themed Easter events.

The local Dorset and Hampshire market towns and seaside villages are always great for a family day out, with Lymington, Christchurch, Wimborne, Wareham and Brockenhurst amongst our favourites. Most have great market days and many will have special Easter events especially for families, such as Easter egg hunts, fancy dress competitions and so much more.

With accommodation and parks to suit all budgets and family sizes, you can take your pick. Bring friends, grandparents or the extended family and make it an Easter holiday to remember!
