(PRWEB UK) 23 February 2012
Easter is a great time for inquisitive families to explore the UK or slip across the Channel for a break in France. As the weather is unlikely to be warm enough for beaches and swimming outdoors, an Easter break is the perfect excuse to see a new city, try out an attraction or discover many of the country’s natural attractions.
Holiday parks are cutting the price of their breaks to ensure they are full for the period, so take advantage of these low-cost late breaks.
Pet-friendly stays in Cornwall
Trevella Park in Cornwall is offering pet-friendly stays at Easter, with pooches given their own welcome treat, basket and bowl on arrival. The park, near Newquay, is close to Crantock Beach and the South West Coastal Path so there are lots of opportunities to explore cliff-top trails along the pretty coastline.
Book a three-night short break starting 6 April for £179 in a pet-friendly holiday home (trevella.co.uk; 01637 830 308).
Sea monsters on the Yorkshire coast
While the Yorkshire coast is not renowned for its sharks, carnivorous plants and red-bellied Piranhas, it is possible to enter this underwater world by visiting The Deep, one of the world’s most spectacular aquariums, which is based in Hull. The creatures of the deep might seem scary but an Easter visit shouldn’t – stay from 13 April for 3-nights at Sand Le Mere holiday park in nearby Tunstall and save £17 on a family stay for bookings made before 30 March, with prices starting from £158 (sand-le-mere.co.uk; 01964 670 403).
Five-star luxury in France
L’Orangerie de Lanniron is set in the grounds of a château next to the river Odet in southern Brittany – so grand you can even take guided tours of the grounds and the terraced 17th century classical gardens. Highlights include the fantastic pool complex with waterslides, a superb 9-hole golf course with clubs available to hire from the site, and kids play areas with zip wires, slides and climbing frames. Available at ispycamping.com, 7 nights starting 7 April from £372 for a family in a mobile home.
