Escape the city 

Turn off the phone, unplug from city life and bring your family for a countryside escape at the Boarstall Duck Decoy Cadbury Easter egg hunt  between 30 March and 2 April. 

Children can follow the hunt to spot signs of spring and unearth cuddly creatures hiding through the woodland. The winding paths, sea of bluebells, boucing lambs in the fields and cherry blossom make it a tranquil setting for getting the kids closer to nature. Have lots of fun, complete the hunt and claim your choclately prize. 

The hunt costs £1.50 per trail with normal admission applying.
