Family fun at Coleton Fishacre
Coleton Fishacre house and garden are both chocka-block with fun things to do with your little-ones come rain or shine this spring. The garden has bamboo to hide in, woodland to explore and a wild play area to discover. There are trails to complete, stylish accessories to try on in the house, and the Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt to look forward to.
In the house
The free spotter trail in the house challenges children to hunt for specific items. In the Kitchen there's a napkin folding activity which is perfect for little and big kids alike. There's also the handling room to visit; in here outfits and accessories from the 1920s and 30s are displayed, which you can rifle through and try on. The collection in the rest of the house is more delicate, so we ask that you don't touch items in other rooms.
Fancy being a nature detective? From Visitor Reception you can pick up a trail which invites you to search for different types of plants, count their leaves or draw what you see, and then claim your reward of a sticker. When you're in the garden, look out for signs dotted around which prompt you to see, hear, and feel different things in nature such as the wind rustling the bamboo leaves, and the sound of birds.

The clues point you in the direction of trees with bird eggs in, so you can find out all about the birds' favourite trees here. A delicious Cadbury treat will be waiting for you at the end (while stocks last).
