Woodland, coasts & mountains

Choose a mini staycation this Easter exploring our magnificent woodland, coasts and mountains, their flora and wildlife newly revived by spring. You could grab a life jacket and set sail from our coastal resorts, try some water sports on our nearby lochs or sea or add some extra adrenaline with a visit to one of the many theme parks close by.

Don’t forget we’ve got daily activities for the kids, swimming pools, children’s play areas and sports facilities at our resorts too providing plenty ‘at home’ entertainment during your holiday without going too far. 

Hill Walking


Choose from two self-catering resorts near the town of Aviemore in the Cairngorms National Park – the ultimate outdoor adventure park! Walking, water sports, cycling and red squirrel spotting are high on the list of things to do and for added thrills visit nearby Landmark Forest Adventure Park or Strathspey Steam Railway - both family favourites. Choose from our two self-catering resorts in the area: Spey Valley Resort and Lochanhully Resort.


Our Forest Hills Resort lies on the beautiful Loch Ard, not only a fabulous location for adventures on foot but perfect for water sports including kayaking and canoeing. Our resident activity provider Go Country even have a water park built on the loch and hamster balls for the energetic.  Add that to the brilliant leisure facilities on the resort and vast Queen Elizabeth Forest nearby and they’ll work off the Easter eggs in no time.

Kayak Aviemore


Surrounded by mountains and valleys yet only 15 minutes from miles of sandy beaches you’ll find our Plas Talgarth Resort. Take your pick from nearby outdoor activities or spend a day visiting the slate mines, quaint market towns and scenic railway journeys in the southern region of Snowdonia National Park. The many estuaries and nature reserves along this section of coast are also a hot spot for wildlife enthusiasts.

The New Forest

Enjoy a self-catering Easter break at Elmers Court Resort and discover ancient woodland, moors within the new forest plus dramatic cliffs, coastal paths and beaches to explore along the Solent and English Channel. Take a boat trip, go hunting for real dinosaur fossils on the Isle of Wight or treat the kids to a day at Peppa Pig World or The Lost Kingdom theme park (for dinosaurs galore!) only 30 minutes inland.

Beaches, waterparks & sightseeing

If you’re looking for warmer seas and a little extra sunshine for your family break head to Spain this Easter. The average temperature at our resorts in the Costa Del Sol is 20-25° with 8-10 hours of sunshine per day! Just make sure your Easter eggs don’t melt...

There’s an abundance of beaches within easy reach of all resorts and don’t forget the many outdoor swimming pools.  We’re also perfectly located for some amazing walking and cycling routes or enjoy some sightseeing, water parks and theme parks when the temperatures are much easier for young ones to handle.
