Easter Holiday Suggestions


It’s Easter this weekend, and we're looking forward to having an absolutely crackin’ (or should we say QUACKIN’) time with our feathered family. There is lots of Easter Egg hunting and fun to be had, all over the place. We thought we would put together our top five recommendations of where you could visit this bank holiday (including some with duck ponds of course). If you're thinking about having a quiet one, or just relaxing - then have a look at these for future reference instead!

Whatever you get up to this Easter, have a lovely time. 

Castle Ward, County Down.

A National Trust property, Castle Ward in County Down is absolutely stunning! This mansion stands amongst parkland looking over Strangford Lough. The working estate once included a water-powered sawmill, cornmill and farmyard.

There are lots of trails and beauty spots around the ground, including Temple Water which is a manmade canal (we wonder if you will spot any of our duck friends?!). This Easter you can take part in Easter crafts and puppetry, as well as learning how your chocolate egg is made at the chocolate forest barn.
