This summer, play ‘Hide & Sheep’ and bring Shaun the Sheep to life with an interactive augmented reality trail experience at Bodnant Garden.

Bring Shaun the Sheep to life at Bodnant Garden

Enjoy the nature, beauty and tranquility of the garden during the heady days of summer whilst following a pre-downloaded, interactive family trail that lets you find, pose and even take a selfie with Shaun the Sheep!  

Gather your flock to follow the trail, spot the markers and find Shaun in AR, hiding out in the garden. He’ll appear right beside you, so you can copy his pose, take photos and share them with your friends and family as you complete your stamp collection, all whilst enjoying the natural surroundings. 

**Please note, the app can only be used at venues currently hosting the ‘Hide & Sheep’ Trail and due to limited phone service, we recommend downloading the app before you arrive at the garden.**  

How to find and download the app

To make sure you’re all ready to start playing as soon as you arrive, we suggest that you download the app from the App Store or Google Play beforehand. Phone service can be patchy at times in the garden, but once downloaded, the game can be played with no service. 
To find the app, search for 'Hide & Sheep' and enter Bodnant Garden’s unique location code – 2853.

The app has been developed by Aardman, the original creators of Shaun the Sheep and Wallace & Gromit.  

This is the first time the app has been used in Wales and Bodnant Garden is only the second place to host the experience in the UK to date.  
With so many views and formal areas of the garden to consider, creating a trail for families to enjoy can prove challenging. We’re happy to be able to bring the trail to the garden over the summer holidays and we hope that by trialing this type of trail we can provide a great day out for all visitors to the garden. 

Shaun the Sheep: Hide & Sheep AR Trail has been developed for devices that support Augmented Reality from the iPhone 6S onwards. Please note that previous versions of these devices will not be fully supported.
