Easter in Somerset

Easter always brings the start of better weather and visitors to Somerset start to see the beautiful landscapes refreshed after the winter season. Coming to Somerset over the Easter holidays will guarantee you a chance to see the wildlife and farm animals introducing their new babies to the world, the daffodils and flowers will be budding again and the trees will have lost their bare branches. It’s the perfect time for exploring the countryside and enjoying more of the outdoor activities that Somerset has to offer.

As well as the scenery, there are a whole host of events going on over the holidays, with the region’s top attractions offering additional events, openings and special offers as they start gearing up for the summer season.

Many of the area’s accommodation providers will also be opening their doors and welcoming families to their properties with offers such as children go free, children eat free and discounts for family groups, making it even easier for you to enjoy yourself in the county at this time of year. And we haven’t even had a chance to talk about the chocolate yet!

Chocolate and Somerset go hand in hand, with Cadbury’s legacy being firmly held in Keynsham and outlet stores offering the very best in Easter Eggs. Don’t worry though, it isn’t all about chocolate, other sweet treats are available and for those who prefer a savoury menu, this is the best time of year to sample the incredibly local produce. You’ll find farmer’s markets, restaurants and cafes all over the area showing off their wide range of locally produced ingredients throughout the Easter holiday. You’ll find everything from locally reared meat, fresh veg, sweets such as fudge, hot cross buns and simnel cake being made on site and home grown salads.

Hotels, holiday parks, B&Bs and more book up quickly over the Easter holidays, so be sure to head to our accommodation pages and take a look at the wide variety of properties available. Many offer lower prices to families during the school holidays, as well as there being options for couples, solo travellers and even those who want to treat their four legged friends to a holiday.

Similarly, you’ll find attractions and events all themed around Easter across the region, so be sure to join in an Easter Egg hunt or two, head to a farm attraction for feeding the lambs or heading to one of our many National Trust properties to see the gardens springing to live.
