The best cottages for an Easter egg hunt

The Easter bunny will soon be making an appearance, along with a couple of weeks of school holidays and the very much welcomed long weekend. We think it’s the perfect time to slip away to a beautiful cottage in the countryside or near the coast, to explore a different corner of the UK and enjoy some quality time with your favourite people. Oh, and of course, it’s a great excuse to indulge in a little chocolate!

One of our favourite activities over the Easter weekend has to be the timeless Easter egg hunt – great fun for children (and the young at heart!). So, if you’re thinking of getting away for an Easter holiday and you’re searching for the perfect place, we’ve put together a guide to the best cottages for an Easter egg hunt to help inspire you. Enjoy…
