This Easter, Willows Activity Farm will welcome a certain sly fox to the farm as it launches its newest experience, Mr Tod’s Lair. The new play area aimed at young guests will be open from March 24 just in time for Peter Rabbit fans to enjoy the space throughout the Easter holidays.

Mr Tod, a character known for frequently moving homes, has finally decided to accept Willows’ invitation for permanent residence alongside the Peter Rabbit Adventure Playground. With plenty of secret entrances, hiding places and even a chimney lookout – the lair is set to be the only place for kids to be seen (or rather, not seen!) this Easter. You may also spot the pesky fox who will be featuring in shows in the Peter Rabbit Theatre throughout Easter.

Also new for Easter is the Super Secret Squirrel test. Guests will be taking on squirrel themed challenges as they make their way through the course, trying to replicate the skills of Squirrel Nutkin.

Nicola Ratcliffe, chief executive officer of Willows Activity Farm, says: “We’re very excited for the launch of our newest play area, Mr. Tod’s Lair, and can’t wait to see it arrive just in time for Easter. Mr. Tod may be a cunning, sly character, but his lair is set to be a place our guests are really going to love and we are delighted to welcome him as a character to the farm.”

Willows Activity Farm is also busy preparing its annual Easter Eggstravaganza to make sure the holidays are as ‘hoppy’ as can be. From chocolate-filled egg hunts to plenty of creative arts and craft sessions, and fluffy chicks and baby rabbits in between, the farm will be choc-full with activities for the whole family to enjoy.
