Why Athelington Hall Log Cabin Holidays is a great place for an Easter Break

Now that restrictions have been eased and 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 the Easter Bank holiday weekend, 15th-18th April and why Athelington Hall Log Cabin Holidays 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 offering an Easter Adventure Quest from 2nd to 24th April. The quest will see children explore the castle to find clues and unearth where eggs are hidden. There will also be separate games like egg rolling and egg and spoon races.

The cost of the quest is £1.50 per child (on top of adult admission fees). All the usual attractions will also be open as usual, 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, also has an Easter adventure trail … with a chocolate egg at the end of it! From 9th to 24th April there will also be an Easter Egg hunt at Ickworth House, near Bury St Edmunds.



Easter Fest 22 at Stonham Barns will run from 15th -17th April. This is a great location for the children! As well as listening to the music, there’ll be plenty of opportunities to dance as well. Tickets are available for individual days as well as for the whole weekend. The usual attractions at the Barns will be open as usual.

If classical music is more your cup of tea, then Snape Maltings near Aldeburgh has a full Easter programme, starting off with the Heath String Quartet on Good Friday, who will play excerpts from Bach’s Passions of St Matthew, Mark and John.


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 Festival of Dogs.


Enjoy the Countryside

You don’t have to go to any organised events, you can just enjoy the peaceful serenity of the local countryside. There are plenty of walks and trails to enjoy. The beautiful Suffolk Coast is within an hour's car journey away.

We have nine pet-friendly lodges (Sycamore, Hazel, Chestnut, Willow, Beech, Oak, Ash, Violet and Orchid) so you can bring your whole family along! Your dog will be able to frolic around 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.

Our availability and pricing are live on our website. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch. We look forward to welcoming you all soon… We also plan to do a little something fun within our cabins for Easter - watch this space! 🐰
