Heather on the North Yorkshire Moors - Wayside Holiday Park

Easter holidays – enjoy your break

Sunshine and showers – it must be spring and therefore Easter too: a time for lambs, chicks and of course Easter Eggs. You might however be one of the thirty percent of people who, in a recent study, said they ate their Easter Eggs before they gave them away! Don’t worry, your secret is safe with us…

Naturally where Easter falls the holidays follow, but thankfully there’s loads to do within easy reach of Wayside Lakes holiday park. We’re perfectly positioned to enjoy the very best of Yorkshire and beyond. Nothing is busier at this time of the year than the wild birds at the Park, every hedgerow seems to be chattering away, teeming with life. When not busy forging for the first tasty morsels of spring, nest building is high on the agenda. Robert Fuller’s gallery in Thixendale is the place to be for any budding birders. Up until the 26th April the renowned gallery has big screens showing live videos of bird nests, as well as demonstrations of how birds build their nests. There’s something for both young and old – exquisite paintings to hands on experiences will really get you in the springtime mood.

Enjoy some spring shopping and grab yourself a treat or two at Duncombe Park over the Easter weekend. On both Saturday and Sunday the Park will be crammed with stalls laden with crafts and gifts, there also promises to be a superb dog agility event there too. How does your four-legged friend compare? Yorkshire’s heritage is a rich as its landscape; with ancient cities, villages and communities you can take a look back at days gone by in one of our many museums. Beck Isle just down the road in Pickering is running an Easter Eggstravaganza until April 12th and with twenty-eight rooms of displays there’s sure to be most interests catered for.

Get hands on as well at Ryedale Folk Museum every Tuesday or Thursday afternoon as you turn your hand to making a lamb rag rug or felting. The village of Hutton le Hole is surrounded by sheep so we’re pretty sure they’ve got some decent materials to work with! Finally, for many, Easter can’t pass without taking part in a church service. Head down to York Minster over Easter for one of the many free services taking place. They’re very popular so we recommend getting down there early, and take a cushion.

Whatever you do this Easter we dearly hope you have an enjoyable break and you make the most of Yorkshire has to offer. If you’re not here but wish you were, then join us in your own holiday home lodge at Wayside Lakes to share the magic.
