it's a great day out for the whole family with fantastic indoor and
outdoor activities. Whether you're looking for fun on the

This Easter holiday the park will be adding the opportunity for
children aged 1-12 yrs old to visit Easter Bunny HQ, the location
of the Park Easter bunny and his chocolate Eggs. Children receive
their own free Easter Egg and a chance to meet the Easter Bunny in
A beautiful Regency house on a family estate, built 1823.
Arlington Court also has a National Trust Carriage Museum on the
estate and spectacular formal gardens to explore on the finer
spring days. For those families looking to get the kids outdoors
this Easter then make sure you take part in the nature trail across
Arlington Court where children find clues enabling them to claim a
Cadbury's Chocolate prize. If you would like a more local
experience, make sure you meet the new flock of spring lambs and
enjoy a talk by one of the estates' local farmers.
The big sheep has a great selection of activities for families,
from rollercoasters to indoor playgrounds. One of our favourites
has to be the daily live shows, with the sheep racing being a
standout! The Easter Eggstravaganza Festival is an annual
event at the Big Sheep, where thousands of chocolate Easter Eggs
get hidden across the park for children to find as they explore the
attractions. The Easter bunny even makes an appearance at intervals
throughout the day, so make sure you get a photo!
This picturesque coastal village nestles perfectly into the
dramatic cliffs near Hartland. Historical cottages line the quaint
cobbled streets down to the harbour below. During Easter children
receive a village map on entry to Clovelly, this map marks the
location of the Easter chicks perched up and down the cobbled High
Street. Find at least 10 chicks on the route and they can return
the map to the Visitor Centre reception to win an Easter egg.
If they spot all 15 chicks, they win a bigger prize!
