With the Easter holidays just around the corner, now is the perfect time to start planning a family getaway that everyone can enjoy. Our beautiful four-star hotel is an ideal base to explore Berkshire and beyond: think 18-metre swimming pool, on-site restaurant, an award-winning spa, 18-hole golf course, milk and cookies on arrival – you know, the essentials. It’s also a stone’s throw away from the M4 and A34, making for easy travel to our hand-picked family destinations, all less than an hour from the hotel.
The Living Rainforest (16 minutes from Donnington Valley Hotel)
This is one for the animal lovers! Explore the plants and animals of the tropical rainforest across three climate-controlled glasshouses. Meet the two-toed sloth, brilliant blue poison dart frog or emerald green boa snake. Throughout April, there’s even a special reptile exhibit with plenty of fun for the whole family!
Basingstoke Leisure Park (30 minutes from Donnington Valley Hotel)
There’s plenty to do here: take in a movie at ODEON cinema, enjoy a spot of ice-skating at Planet Ice, or maybe hone your skills on the slopes at Ski Zone. If you’re really a daredevil family, visit the iFly indoor skydiving centre to get a taste of freefalling without even needing to board a plane!
Winchester Science Centre and Planetarium (35 minutes from Donnington Valley Hotel)
This hands-on, interactive science and technology centre is exciting AND educational! Perfect for budding scientists to explore their curiosity and with a packed calendar of workshops and demonstrations, it’s a brilliant day out whatever the weather! It’s also home to one of the UK’s largest planetariums, so you and your little ones can explore the galaxy up close!
Go Ape, Bracknell (37 minutes from Donnington Valley Hotel)
This high-flying treetops adventure course is perfect for the whole family. Unleash your inner Tarzan as you swing through the trees, navigating obstacles and exploring the beautiful canopy – just don’t look down! If you’d rather keep both feet firmly planted on the ground, why not enjoy a family Segway trip through the forest instead?
