Easter activities for Children in Cornwall

Joining us for Easter this year?  We’ve got a round up of the best activities for children in the area!


Hidden Valley CornwallHidden Valley

One of our closest favourites is Hidden Valley which opens back up again for Easter and I’m really looking forward to going again with Lyra.  Different to any other theme park I’ve been to this place is known for its challenge trails. Set up with trails for all different ages, work out the clues and take on the activities to complete the challenges. The best way to describe it is like an outdoor escape room.  On top of that is a fab outside playground, mini train to take you around the park and a fairy village to visit.  Set in gorgeous grounds the whole place except the Forbidden Mannor is dog friendly and provides a day’s activities for children of all ages.  Opens for the year 30th March.

Easter activities for childrenTrethorne Leisure Park

So, fingers crossed for sunshine, but if that fails soft play! Just down the road Trethorne has a huge soft play with slides, bouncy castles, a pirate ship and inside beach.  Throughout Easter they are doing a range of seasonal activities such as Easter egg hunts, design your own Easter egg  and meet the Easter bunny,  As well as this there is an extensive outside playground, small boating lake and meet the animal encounters.

Jump abord the Easter Eggspress at Bodmin Railway for a ride through beautiful scenery by steam.  Another attraction running Easter activities for Children in Cornwall is Bodmin Railway.  Over the Easter holidays they will have an Easter trail running.  During your journey and around the station look out for the hidden letters.  Prizes to be won if you complete your activity sheet!

Dairyland Farm Park

This Easter there’s lots of fun on the farm.  Chanel their inner farmer as they take part in Pony and Tractor rides and milk Clarabelle the cow.  There’s a special Easter treasure hunt.  However, my favourite part of this time of year is it’s perfect for meeting new arrivals.  Bottle feeding their gorgeous lambs happens twice a day.  As well as this there is extensive indoor and Outdoor play areas to burn off any excess energy!

Something a bit different to do while you’re staying with us is to go Alpaca  trekking.  Open to all ages but handlers under 7 must be accompanied by an adult.  On selected dates over Easter they also have an open farm where you can meet all their other animals.  A special add on is their meet the meerkat experience (over 12s) – booking essential!

Easter Egg Rolling Padstow

A special tradition in Padstow is the Easter egg decorating and rolling on Easter Sunday.  This is an RNLI fundraiser that anyone can get involved with.  The egg rolling takes place on Duke Street.


Children at the Beach at Easter

The Beach

Obviously one of main reasons people come to visit Cornwall is for it’s beautiful beaches.  Around Ekopod we’re lucky to have some gorgeous ones!  For ease of access we recommend Widemouth (you can park right next to the sand here) and the the town beaches of Crooklets and Summerleaze.  For both the town beaches it is a very short walk from the carpark to the sand and easy access to the shops and cafes of Bude. Widemouth also has two cafes.  For Easter these beaches are all lifeguarded and offer lovely opportunities, to paddle, rock pool, swim (if you’re a cold water swimming enthusiast) and surf.  If you do love cold water swimming do not miss Bude’s famous sea pool. They’re having their annual Easter extravaganza on April 14th

Exploring natureNature

As well as visiting all the many wonderful attractions on our doorstep, make sure you also set aside some time to embrace spring blossoming at Ekopod.   Whether you’re staying in one of our geodomes or safari tents your kids can enjoy unstructured play, simply exploring the wild areas of Ekopod looking out for the different birds and wildlife you can spot around the site. With the warmer weather and longer days ahead, there’s no better time to encourage kids to put down their screens and embrace the great outdoors!


We hope you enjoy our suggestions for Easter activities for Children in Cornwall and look forward to welcoming you to Ekopod!
