If you are looking to keep the children entertained during the school holidays, keep reading for a range of cracking Easter activities.
Easter Egg Hunt
A classic Easter Egg Hunt is a favourite for many (and not just because of the chocolatey treats available). Enjoy the experience at Caterham Valley, with a free egg hunt around the town centre starting in Church Walk Shopping Centre. As you explore the trail, there will be plenty of activities and surprises along the way, all adding to the fun! At the end, all children that have completed the trail will earn a well-deserved chocolatey treat. For those looking to enjoy a full day of activities, Church Walk Shopping Centre is hosting a free Easter Fun Day on Easter Saturday, with a wide range of activities from egg decorating and face painting to a colourful Easter Bonnet Parade.
Caterham is also home to our spectacular collection of two and three-bedroom houses at Broadleaf Place. All properties enjoy contemporary kitchens with a selection of high-quality integrated appliances, perfect for rustling up an Easter roast. Upstairs, spacious primary bedrooms enjoy the added luxury of a modern en-suite shower room. A further family bathroom is complete with stylish tiling and an electric underfloor heating mat, creating a comfortable haven to unwind in. Set to launch later this month, prices at Broadleaf Place are still to be confirmed.
The Great Box Hill Egg Roll
Another egg-based tradition is egg rolling. The Great Box Hill Egg Roll is the perfect opportunity to decorate some hard-boiled eggs and see how long they last being rolled down the slopes of the hill. At 11am and 3pm every day from the 15th to the 18th April, meet at the viewing platform to take in the spectacular panoramic views and wait to see who is declared the winner of the best decorated egg competition. Then line up and wait to start rolling your eggs down the slope.
Just a 20-minute drive from the popular Surrey hill, Millside Placeis our collection of stylish Epsom homes. With a range of one, two and three-bedroom apartments remaining, there is plenty on offer here for every type of buyer.
Homes at Millside Place are designed to meet the needs of the modern buyer. The open-plan kitchen/living/dining area is the ideal place to host family and friends. Along the hallway, spacious primary bedrooms offer the perfect retreat after an exciting day of egg rolling. A modern bathroom is complete with luxury Minoli tiling and white porcelain sanitaryware. Prices at Millside Place currently begin at £342,500 for a one-bedroom apartment.
Easter Fun at Wisley
