Easter adventures in nature

Our Easter trail has been extended while stocks last. Running between 10am with last entry at 4pm daily. Normal admission applies & £3 per trail.

At the start of your Easter adventures in nature trail, pick up your activity pack to find the bespoke trail you’re going to follow. Find and complete the 10 nature-inspired activities that are hiding along the way. 'Spot the signs of spring', 'Wibble and wobble' and 'Wake the wild things' are just some of the activities you can experience at Canons Ashby. Finish the trail and collect your Rainforest Alliance chocolate egg or an allergen-free alternative at the end (where available).

Please note, Easter trails and prizes are available while stocks last. 

Whilst you’re here, why not have a look around the spring garden, admire the fresh spring blooms, or pick up a tasty treat from the Stables Tea Room?  All profits help us care for Canons Ashby for the future.

There is currently livestock grazing in the parkland. Please keep any dogs on a short lead at all times, and make sure you pick up your dog poo and either take it home, or put it in the dog waste bin at the bottom of the parkland, by the gate near the car park.

Access information 

The Easter Adventures in Nature Trail takes place in the parkland, which is uneven grass with livestock. Canons Ashby can be very muddy when the weather has been wet. There are a couple of stone steps on the route to this area. For wheelchair users, there is an alternative route to this area although it is longer, and uphill on uneven grass. 


An alternative is that groups with a wheelchair user can do the trail through a different area (also on uneven grass) without steps. This will be a shorter trail and still allow you to experience nature and pick up your chocolate egg prize.
