Easter in Devon: meeting the Easter Bunny at Woodlands Family Theme Park

Hurray! The Easter school holidays have begun in many areas of the UK and we’ve already started our spring break adventures. Last weekend Devon’s Top Attractions invited us to see what was going on at some of our local family attractions during Easter in Devon starting with meeting the Easter Bunny at Woodlands Family Theme Park near Dartmouth.

We also visited Pennywell Farm. Here’s a video round-up of our weekend:

I’ve visited Woodlands several times with our girls. It’s always a hit because of its mix of indoor and outdoor activities suitable for children from toddlers to teens whatever the weather. It also holds special events throughout the year with extra activities laid on during the school holidays like the autumn half term, Easter and summer breaks.

This Easter there’s an Easter Bunny’s Grotto – which is the first of its kind in the UK. There’s also a chocolate hunt around the park, craft activities, magic shows and performances by the brand new entertainments team, the Woodlands Superstarz.

Easter in Devon: Woodlands Easter Bunny Grotto

We were the first family to experience the Woodlands Easter Bunny’s Grotto and have been sworn to secrecy on a lot of the details. However we can tell you this:

  • It’s well worth the £4.50 ticket price per child on top of your park entry.
  • You’ll be taken on an enchanted underground journey through the home and workshop of the Easter Bunny.
  • We particularly liked the attention to detail in the staging of the grotto, from the Bunny’s kitchen to the hall of fame and egg gallery. Top tip: look out for the secret tunnels and sensory stations.
  • Your little bunnies will love meeting the Chairman of chocolate himself and choosing their special Woodlands edition Thorntons Easter Egg or Ty Cuddley Toy.

Woodlands’ Easter activities are happening until April 17, 2017. Check the Woodlands website for full details.

Best activities for pre-schoolers at Woodlands Theme Park

Our pre-school and toddler aged children would happily visit Woodlands each weekend. The outdoor adventure playgrounds, the farm, water rides and soft play keep them entertained for hours. Here are a few of the things we got up to after the Easter Bunny’s Grotto:
