Easter in Devon
In this season of delicious treats and family fun, you’ll find plenty of things to do across the county, with everything from the region’s top attractions hosting special events and activities during the holidays, as well as additional openings so you can really make the most of your holidays.
There are a whole host of fun events going on especially for the holidays and many of the best family-friendly accommodation providers will also have special offers for those coming for Easter celebration.
Easter isn’t just about who can eat the most chocolate eggs, in Devon, Easter is all about having fun with the family. You’ll be spoilt for choice with the plethora of events and activities with everything on offer from hunting dinosaurs to riding on trams to marine exploration. Some of the events you can expect include Easter themed afternoon tea experiences at top hotels, searching for Easter chicks, dinosaur egg hunts and craft workshops with arts and crafts all geared towards the holidays.
If you’re only really interested in the food available at Easter, then Devon is clearly the place to be. Restaurants and other eateries will be proudly showing off the wide range of local produce in their menus throughout the Easter holidays, so if you fancy some locally reared lamb, fresh veg, a hearty hot cross bun or even locally made chocolate eggs, you won’t be disappointed.
Let the children spring into action and delight in finding treasures in a traditional egg hunt or themed bunny hunt – it’s just lovely to see their smiling faces as they fill their baskets with Easter goodies.
From Lambing Live to Easter chick hunts to dinosaur hunts, there’ll be something for every member of the family to enjoy (and ok, there’ll probably be plenty of chocolate alongside too).
Places to Stay
Devon’s hotels, holiday homes, holiday parks and guesthouses really go the extra mile to welcome families over Easter – and prices are a little lower than during the main summer holidays. But don’t hang around too long to book, as over Easter accommodation gets snapped up pretty quickly.
By Easter, Devon’s attractions are in full swing, with lots on to make their visitors’ time with them extra fun!
