North Devon Holiday Cottages can help you make the most of the fast approaching Easter holidays.
It will soon be time to look for the first spring lambs and to plan some family events for over Easter. Depending upon where you live in the world, your cultural or religious background can affect how you view this important holiday weekend. It plays a significant part in many western and orthodox calendars and is celebrated in many different ways. In the UK today we seem to have adopted a number of influences and traditions, which range from the solemn to the frivolous.
I think we all have to admit though, that no matter the level of seriousness we place on our Easter weekend, we all love to get chocolate Easter Eggs and to share in some family fun. Your family could enjoy quite a few Easter treats if they visit North Devon this year as there are a number of special events going on, including The Big Sheep Easter Egg Hunt. There are other interesting places to visit locally too, such as Hartland Abbey for its Bluebell's and Ilfracombe has an Exmoor walking week.
A quick visit to these links and you will soon find something happening during the holidays, to please every member of the family, at every age.
Little Combe is a delightful character country cottage with a very pretty garden and a welcoming log-burner for cooler evenings. It is situated in the same village as The Big Sheep and therefore ideal for taking part in their Easter festivities. St Martins Lodge, once a Chapel, is now a pretty holiday home in a scenic setting. Great for exploring all of the Hartland Point area and its local attractions.
The Cuttings in Ilfracombe is a spacious family cottage, situated in a wonderful leafy valley, only a couple of minutes drive from this historic harbour town. Ideal for exploring the coast and countryside of beautiful North Devon and Exmoor.
