Now that Easter is only a matter of weeks away, it is the perfect time for short Suffolk breaks. Here we take a look at some of the events that are taking place in the county over that Easter Bank holiday weekend (March 29th – April 1st), and why Windmill Lodges is the perfect base from which to see these and explore the area.

Easter Egg Hunting

If you are after family-friendly fun, then lots of places will be having Easter Egg hunts over the holiday period.

Framlingham Castle is the closest to Windmill Lodges, and will offer an Easter Adventure Quest from March 23rd to April 14th. The quest will see children explore the castle to find clues and find where eggs are hidden.

The cost of the quest is £2 per child (admission fees apply). All the usual attractions will also be open, including the exhibition area and the café. It may be advisable to book in advance as it can get very busy at Bank Holidays. You can check out the English Heritage site for more details.

Sutton Hoo, near Woodbridge, around 14 miles to the south of Saxtead, also has an Easter Egg hunt (with a chocolate egg at the end of it) from March 29th to April 14th where you can explore the beautiful Suffolk countryside while egg hunting. There will also be an Easter Egg hunt over the same period at Ickworth House, near Bury St Edmunds, if you don’t mind travelling a little further.

Country Fare

Henham Park, near Southwold, will be hosting a Country Show on Easter Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday. There will be plenty of traditional craft stalls if you fancy individual gifts, lots of local food producers will be there too. Your canine companion will also be more than welcome, as the event also includes a dog show.

Enjoy the Countryside

You don’t have to go to any organised events, you can just enjoy the peaceful serenity of the local countryside. The Suffolk & Essex Coast and Heaths National Landscape is right on our doorstep, and there are plenty of walks and trails to enjoy.

Your dog will be able to enjoy all of the county’s beaches (with the exception of Southwold) without the need to be kept on a lead. This is because, in most places, this restriction does not kick in until the beginning of May. We also have two pet-friendly lodges (Woodpecker and Wagtail), which are suitable for your dog as well.

Short Suffolk Breaks at Windmill Lodges

Our authentic log cabins in the heart of East Anglia make for the ideal starting-point, wherever in the region you want to go. All of them offer either four-star or five-star accommodation, and come complete with fully fitted kitchens with a full-size cooker, fridge, microwave and dishwasher, as well as TVs, DVD players and free rural broadband wifi. And  you don’t need to go anywhere if you don’t want to – you can just relax in your own private hot tub.
