Set in over 440 acres of beautiful Oxfordshire Parkland, Heythrop Park Resort is an ideal place to enjoy a fun filled family break this Easter.

Guests can choose to stay in the magnificent 18th century Heythrop Park Hotel, originally the private residence of the 1st Duke of Shrewsbury, or the modern and sophisticated Crowne Plaza Hotel with its stylishly designed cocktail bar and outdoor Moroccan courtyard.

Father and son can get competitive on the 18 hole championship golf course whilst the health club and spa await guests looking to enjoy a bit of rest and relaxation. For a great family day out head to nearby Blenheim Palace (a 10mins drive) and choose from a variety of exciting events taking place over the Easter period from the chocolate filled Easter Egg Challenge to a chance to meet the lovable  Peppa Pig and her friends. Book tickets now to avoid disappointment!

A variety of activities will be available throughout the long weekend including traditional fun fair rides, side stalls, face painting and an opportunity to design your own Easter pottery, the Giant Marlborough Hedge Maze, Adventure Play Area and the Butterfly House. In the Pleasure Gardens Café, children can get involved in activities from painting eggs to decorating biscuits plus a sweetie jar competition.

On the 22nd and 23rd April the Great Blenheim Palace Easter Hunt will take place. Look out for Peppa Pig and George and Ben and Holly from "Ben and Holly's Little Kingdom" who will be meeting families on Easter Sunday 24th April and Monday 25th April.   While the Easter hunters explore the Pleasure Gardens and the children meet their favourite TV character the rest of the family can take in the beautiful views of the Park and Gardens which at this time of year will be carpeted with daffodils, before coming back to Heythrop to relax in the spa after the days’ exhausting activities!

Heythrop Park Easter break starts from £95 per night based on 2 adults and 2 children sharing a family room on a bed and breakfast basis.
