Easter farm breaks

Easter will soon be here and could there be a better time to enjoy a farm stay then at this time of year?  Daffodils and spring flowers are springing up in gardens and in the countryside and can be a delight to see.  Add to this baby lambs, spring chickens and other baby animals and Spring really is a wonderful time to spend on a farm.  Meeting the animals whilst taking a rural break is of course great fun for all the family at any time of year but can be particularly special around Easter time.  If you haven’t booked a cottage in advance don’t worry there are usually plenty of good offers to be found for spring breaks.  Some complexes either have cottages with pools and other leisure facilities like hot tubs or spas.  Remember when it comes to rural cottage stays that some farms have complexes with a number of different holiday cottages whereas others have just one or two individual properties within the farm grounds.  If you want seclusion and peace and quiet remember to make full enquiries about the cottage’s location and neighbours before booking.

At some farmstays you are even provided with eggs from the farm for a really enjoyable fresh breakfast.  You are perfectly entitled though to prefer the chocolate variety of eggs at this time of year when you have the perfect excuse.  Whatever you do on a farm break whether you choose to take it really easy or have an action packed trip planned have a wonderful time.

If you want a break in the country but don’t wish to stay on a farm why not consider a self catering stay somewhere rural and book a Country Cottages break.
