Easter fun at Brockhampton

From leaping lambs to beautiful blossom, find out what there is to see and do at Brockhampton over the Easter holidays.

This 2020 we will be collaborating with Cadburys for our Easter trail. During the week leading up to Easter as well as the Easter bank holiday itself we will be running our ‘Cadburys Tale of Jeremy Fisher’ trail where little ones can discover the stories of this much-loved Beatrix Potter character with a chocolate egg prize when they finish. The week following Easter we will continue to run the trail, but with a prize at the end instead of chocolate.

Complete the trail and win a prize!

If you’re feeling adventurous then pick up a ’50 things to do before you’re 11¾’ activities sheet, there’s loads of ideas on here that the whole family can enjoy trying again and again. You can pick up your own complimentary ’50 things’ guide from Visitor Reception, you may also want to grab a ‘kids only’ map so you can find your way to the natural play trail walk where you can try loads of activities along the way.

The Hawkins’ lovely Hebridean sheep will have lambs around Easter time so do look out for these lovely little creatures in the fields. Although Hebrides are very small they are incredibly hardy and will happily stay out, year-round. The lucky sheep here get to spend their lives grazing in the orchards and pastureland, they also help us maintain the orchards by eating problem weeds, keeping the grass down and helping trample wild flower seeds into the ground with their hooves.

Our tea-room and shop will be open daily, you’re also very welcome to picnic in the orchards if you’re in need of a pit-stop. The manor house will also be open every day where the volunteers can tell you more about the estate’s history and little ones can enjoy a spotting trail and '50 things Indoors' activities. There’s so much to see and do this Easter holiday at Brockhampton, we can’t wait to welcome you.
