Easter Holiday Plans with Deer’s Glade

Easter Holiday Plans with Deer’s Glade

Let the season commence! Not long now until the Easter holidays. Easter is a little earlier this year with Good Friday on the 29th of March. As always this time of year comes around super quick at Deer’s Glade. So, we’ve outlined some suggestions for things to do in the Easter holidays onsite and nearby.

Things To Do On & Around Our Holiday Park

Not long until we start to welcome back our returning guests and meet new faces for those soon to visit.

We’ve been spending the winter months, performing our annual site maintenance, but this year we’ve been making some even bigger changes to our holiday park. Some of you might already have booked to stay in our new luxury glamping pods complete with hot tubs, or one of our mega pods complete with a new wood-fired hot tub.

For those signed up to enjoy the camping experience, or park up their caravan for the first outing of the springtime, you’ll be pleased to know the first signs of spring are literally popping up all over the park. Even our migrating geese have already returned. 

If you are visiting us this Easter holiday we have fun things planned onsite and as always we’ve highlighted below a selection of fun local activities in the area to also enjoy.
