The giant leaf trail

This Easter you'll have to search high and low, near and far across the gardens and woodland to earn your Cadbury prize.

Hunt for giant leaves across the Chartwell grounds to discover Randolph the Rabbit's favourites. See if you can unscramble all the tricky clues along the way to uncover Randolph's best trees as well.

Make sure to keep an eye out and you may just spot Randolph the Rabbit along the way. Once the trail has been solved return to claim your own delicious Cadbury chocolate treat*.

Be prepared for an adventure through the grounds with a shorter buggy friendly route available for smaller children. Don't forget your wellies for the woodland, it can get muddy up there.

*whilst stock lasts

Beat the rush

Our Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt is very popular meaning that the property will be busy, particularly over the Easter weekend, Fri 30 March - Mon 02 April.

At times we may have to temporarily close the car park when we're at full capacity and tickets for the house are likely to sell out quickly.

For a more relaxed, quieter experience we recommend visit Monday-Friday after the Easter weekend.

Skip the queues by dining al fresco

Our café can get very busy on the Easter weekend as well as school holiday weekends. Queues are to be expected during these peak times.

Why not bring along a picnic instead? Grab a blanket, find a spot on the slopes by the lakes and enjoy the view whilst you eat.
