Over Easter weekend from Friday 14 to Monday 17 April, join in the Cadbury Egg Hunt at Brockhampton Estate. The mischievous Bunny has been busy leaving clues all around the manor house, orchard and wildflower meadow. Find them all and you’ll get to claim your Cadbury chocolate prize.

Family fun

This Easter there is lots to do for all the family with Easter crafts in the granary and fun activities in the manor house. Visitors can also have a go at an egg and spoon race next to the chapel. Visit on Good Friday to toast hot cross buns in the manor house kitchen. On Easter Sunday visitors can also make lavender bags to take home with them.
