3 Easter breaks in the South West

Unless you’re on a diet or have an intolerance to chocolate, Easter will be one of your favourite times of the year. It’s definitely one of mine! I have fond memories of egg hunts with the family, glimpsing the Easter bunny through the window and playing monopoly with cousins, scoffing chocolate.

So I have hand-picked five places that, in my opinion, are a great place to stay for outdoorsy people, that provide a sincere ‘Easter’ theme and are Devon and Cornwall based. (I’ll get round to the rest of the country in time, I promise).


  • Eden Project Botanical Garden, Cornwall

There are lots of lovely locations in the area where you can stay if you’re coming for the weekend. While the Eden Project has the wow factor it doesn’t take up two days and it would be a shame to be in Cornwall without seeing any of the other amazing sights it has to offer.

The picturesque Charlestown, which featured in the BBC series Poldark as Truro is just round the corner and would make a great day trip. The Eden Project has lots going on this Easter as you can see on their website: click here.

  • National Maritime Museum, Cornwall

Falmouth isn’t only a lovely seaside town, it’s also chock-a-block full of festivity. Come Easter Saturday the AberFest returns to Falmouth and the town will be in high spirits give or take the chocolate eggs. See here for more information on the AberFest.

So if you’re looking for a fun-packed weekend with the kids, Falmouth is the place! Why not take them to the National Maritime Museum for a chocolatey easter treat? Click here to book.

  • Bovey Castle, Devon

Bovey Castle makes good use of the dramatic location and stunning rural setting of Dartmoor National Park. They offer a wide array of services ranging from the luxurious spa service to the outstanding falconry displays run by Martin (well worth the money if you choose to have a go yourself).

On Easter Sunday you can enjoy an Easter Egg scavenger hunt and egg and spoon races complimentary for guests and £5 for visitors. Click here to find out more about Bovey Castle.
