Spring Adventures in Nature

Easter Trail, 11am - 3pm daily

Since a few people missed out on our Easter Trail due to local restricions, we've extended it for a few more weeks so everyone gets a chance to explore the estate. Pick up your trail pack from the Stableyard Shop and head off on an adventure around the grounds. Discover larger than life signs of nature, take a rest in a nest and listen out for the sounds of birdsong along the way. Once you've filled in your trail sheet you'll have earned a chocolate egg reward.

Before visiting, please check local and national government guidance on travelling.

The trail packs cost £3 and can be picked up in the Stableyard Shop

Book your visit

To manage visitor numbers so that social distancing can be ensured for the safety of our staff, volunteers and visitors, the pre-booking system still applies. Booking will provide access to the property, not the Easter adventures in nature trail, which can be purchased on the day. Book your visit here.
