Easter Activities

Starting to make plans for when the kids are off school for Easter? We know it can be a challenge coming up with new exciting ideas and activities that hold the attention of little ones!

Come and stay for a break with us, after all there’s sooo many great family Easter activities happening in the area…


If during your stay with us you plan on seeing as much of the Lake District as possible we’d recommend taking the scenic 40 minute drive north to Penrith, where you can visit the Rheged Centre. As well as blockbuster films on the largest screen north of Manchester (with no trailers!) there are daily workshops on pottery and block painting and decoupage to keep everyone occupied.


One popular Lake District attraction that many of our guests young and old enjoy visiting is the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway. Here visitors can ride on the traditional, restored steam trains, and on Easter weekend (10th - 13th April) all children who take a train ride receive a free Easter egg!

Another option for Easter weekend is to take the kids to the globally famous, World of Beatrix Potter attraction in Windermere, just a short 20 minute drive from Kendal. The attraction itself is great for children with lots to explore, and on Easter weekend there will be a mini treasure hunt that takes the children all around the grounds, you can book a Peter Rabbit Tea Party or simply meet him every hour for a hug! 

Alternatively, Sizergh Castle has a fantastic Easter Egg Hunt over the weekend. Great venue to walk around the gardens and grounds of the Castle and they have a lovely tea shop too. This is the place that the majority of the Castle Green team go!
