Easter In The Yorkshire Dales

With the glorious Easter weekend behind us, we're looking back across the Great British coast and country to our breath-taking retreats and their fun-filled activities! With our sights set on the Yorkshire Dales, we spoke to General Manager Amanda about how she made Easter, 'egg-stra' special for all of our wonderful guests...

So, which furry friends joined us at the iconic Yorkshire Dales Easter farm this year?

"This year we welcomed two little lambs to The Sanctuary from the Friday to the Monday - they were only a few days old and were incredibly cute (and inquisitive, as they followed me round all weekend!). We were also joined by two fluffy little rabbits; 'Peter & Rita' (courtesy of our wonderful housekeepers!) and four incredible little bundles of joy in the form of 8-week old terrier puppies on Easter Sunday too!"

Fantastic! Did our guests get the opportunity to interact with these gorgeous animals?

"Definitely! We organised bottle feeding of the lambs twice daily, allowing our young explorers to come up to the Sanctuary and have the chance to feed them. Some of our young explorers were even present in 2016, so were super excited to interact with the lambs again this year! The terrier pups were a huge success with the little ones, with many wanting to take one back to the lodges or even home with them!

Apart from the wildlife, were there any other Easter activities for all to enjoy?

"To keep the little ones occupied, our team member Janie organised an Arts & Crafts table for the children to decorate paper eggs, rabbits and lambs, after we which we all enjoyed our annual Easter egg hunt! Despite the slight drizzle, plenty of young explorers turned up to hunt the chocolatey treats, and all received a great big chocolate egg at the end to feast on back in their lodges!
