Isle of Wight recommended for Easter break

The National Trust is encouraging families to head to the Isle of Wight during this year's Easter holidays.

According to the group, a special event aimed at children aged between five and 13 is being staged at Newtown Old Town Hall on April 7th 2010.

Youngsters will get the chance to interact with animals such as lambs and be able to make an Easter lamb from real wool.

However, the National Trust said that even if there is not an event on at one of its sites, there is no reason families cannot make their own fun this Easter.

"We've got gardens that are perfect for hide and seek, coast and countryside brimming with wildlife and historic houses that are full of enchanting characters and stories," said spokeswoman Sally Williams.

She stated that all these could help to stimulate a family's imagination during the Easter season.

The National Trust owns a number of properties in the Isle of Wight, including the 18th century cottages in Brighstone, Bembridge Windmill and Mottistone Manor Garden.
