Best Breaks for Easter Bank Holiday Weekend

We’ve made it through the winter months! We’re on the home straight to the first bank holiday weekend of the year! That’s a whole four days off work. Good Friday is on the 19th April and Easter Monday bank holiday falls on the 22nd. Prices often rise during the school holidays, but fear not! We have some great UK holidays with a discount for NHS and health care workers.

Booking a break around public holidays is a great way to maximise on your annual leave. The downside is it’s popular! Plan in advance to make sure you secure the break you want.

Fresh out of winter hibernation, the Health Service Discounts team have been working hard to bring you the best deals for your Spring holiday.

Beat the crowds and secure a luxurious cabin, a nature break or a countryside cottage full of character.

Northumberland

Take in the Viking Coast, wild moorlands, white sandy beaches and ancient monuments.

Northumberland is home to dramatic cliff sides and expansive forests. Explore RSPB nature reserve Coquet Island and take the boat from Amble during the summer months to get up close with puffins, Arctic tern and the rare roseate tern.

Meanwhile, Kielder Forest provides an adventure all of its own being the UK’s largest forest, and within Dark Sky Park you’ll find Osprey, Goshawks and England’s native red squirrels.

Cornwall

Cornwall is a bounty of gastronomic treats and inspiring landscapes that provide both the promise of adventure and the opportunity to relax.

Surrounded by attractive coastlines Cornwall is famed for its surfing and water sports culture.

It is little wonder that it is often used as a filming location. Most recently the BBC series Poldark made use of the natural beauty of Charlestown, Porthgwarra, St. Agnes and Kynance Cove. Take a windswept ramble down the South West Coast Path through the wildflower moorlands, or marvel at the rich archaeological history to include abandoned engine houses, stone circles, museums and a rich maritime heritage.

Indeed, Cornwall is brimming with interesting sights and experiences to delight your senses. It is home to the world’s largest greenhouses at The Eden Project, and England’s only tea plantation at the Tregothnan Estate along the banks of the Fal River.
