What to do this Easter in the New Forest For Families

Planning an escape with the children this Easter? Why not stay at the Cottage Lodge Hotel. It is £15 per child bnb if they share your room. Children are up to 18 years old at the Cottage Lodge. Easter is a great time to visit the New Forest for families.

Let the children run wild in the New Forest. Why not dam a stream, climb a fallen tree or just run in 94,000 acres of forest and open moorland unchanged for 1000 years? The forest is a magical place for families to explore in the spring time when the New Forest Ponies, and naughty donkeys are busy eating the spring grass and waiting for the new foals to arrive.

Visit Long Down Dairy Farm and try their Easter Egg hunts every day over the Easter period. What better way to spend a day than holding chicks, stroking rabbits and watching the silly goats!! There is also an amazing play barn and, if you are lucky, the hens will lay an egg for you. The perfect place for families to go this Easter.


Explore the amazing Paulton’s Park, the home of Pepper Pig World and theme park for under 12’s. Paulton’s park is a great day out for all the family.

Try a Holiday Adventure day at Beaulieu and bring back some wonderful photos of your family adventure Kayaking on the Beaulieu river or cycling through the forest.


Not to be left out Marwell Zoo has its very own Easter Bunny where the children can enjoy a day out …. and hunt a GIANT easter egg! There is so much to see and do at Marwell Zoo.
