There are plenty of things going on this Easter holiday to keep the boredom at bay. This year, the Easter break for kids takes place between Monday 4th April and Monday 18th April (this includes the bank holidays).
With the kids off school and the weather turning a corner, is there a more perfect time to get out there and make memories as a family? Here are some of our favourite Cheshire-based activities picked just for you to enjoy. Don’t forget to pop to The Swan for a bite to eat afterwards.
BeWILDerwood is a huge, award-winning forest of family fun and outdoor adventure. Explore a world full of treehouses, Wobbly Wires, Slippery Slopes, Crocklebogs, Twiggles and Boggles, storytelling, marsh walks and really yummy food! It’s simply perfect for family adventures into the woods as adults are encouraged to get stuck in too!
Based on the magical and enchanting books by author and creator Tom Blofeld, a day at BeWILDerwood means endless hours spent together. It’s just over 15 minutes in the car from The Swan.
Cheshire Craft Workshop is a bright crafting workspace based at Blakemere Village where children and adults can let their creative juices flow with pottery painting, pottery throwing, deco patch and candle dipping this Easter. Their core business is pottery painting for all ages and abilities and artisan craft workshops for adults.
Open daily 10am to 5pm; there is no need to book. The team are on hand if guidance or inspiration is needed and if you are more advanced in pottery glazing, they have more specialised resources available too.
Blakemere Village is just under 6 and a half miles from The Swan, so perfect if you’re staying overnight with us this Easter.
When you are looking for things to do in the outdoors this Easter, consider having a go at tree climbing at Arley Hall in Cheshire!
Recreational tree climbing is a safe and thrilling experience, in which anyone from age 6 years upwards can use a simple, yet challenging technique to climb into the canopy of tall trees. Discover Tree Climbing is a new organisation offering recreational tree climbing at Arley Hall on from 26th February to 11th June on selected days.
A maximum of 8 climbers can ascend at a time. Sessions last for 30 minutes to 90 minutes according to your preferences.
The Double Rope Technique is a safe method used by arborists and tree climbers the world over. Climbers wear a harness and are attached to a climbing line which is secured to a strong branch. Using a system of friction knots, the climber uses the power in their legs to propel themselves up the rope, and into the tree.
Choose your date and time slot and book in advance online on the Arley Hall website. It’s just over half an hour’s drive from The Swan.
