Easter Holidays at Canons Ashby

A family enjoying the Cadbury Egg Hunt

Join us for some spring fun in the fresh air this Easter. We have plenty going on to keep the family amused - and they may even learn something!

6-18 April, 11-3pm
Make a big muddy seed bomb out of our ingredients, take aim and throw it as far as you can! Who can throw the furthest?

You will be helping us get more types of wildflowers and plants growing in the paddock and parkland, and create better habitats for insects and wild animals to thrive here in future.

19-22 April 10-4pm
A delicious Cadbury prize awaits at the end of our outdoor Easter Hunt. Bring the whole family to search high and low for our creature clues across the ancient parkland. Then don’t forget your tasty reward! The trail costs £3 each and normal admission prices apply. Find out more about this here.

It can be busy in the middle of the day if the weather is good, so try to come early or late to have a calmer visit.

Do some exploring

There is plenty to explore at Canons Ashby with the , "Stolen" family trail in the house, and with the parkland, paddock and garden to explore. If you want to go in the house make sure you check the house opening times to avoid disappointment.

Make sure to look out for the lambs in the nearby field, but please do not get too close to them.

Treats for all!

There are plenty of treats, toys and gifts in the Coach House shop, including pocket-money treats. Or, kit the kids out with nature spotting equipment and books and foster their love of creatures big and small.

Visit the Stables tea room and enjoy a tasty lunch or some fresh baking, or a kids pick and mix lunch box for the little ones.
