Find spring colour with Lubbock the Lamb's flock

Emmetts Garden is full of colour and adventure this Easter. Explore high and low, over and under to find Lubbock the Lamb's flock all around the garden. Each lamb has a favourite spring colour that they're waiting for you to discover on our special plants and trees.

Keep a eagle eye out and you might just spot Lubbock the Lamb along the way.

Once clever old you has solved the puzzles, hop on over to the end point to collect your delicious Cadbury chocolate treat*.

While you're here make the most of our wild play area by the café where you can scramble over logs, balance on beams and hide out in one of our dens.

The trail route is buggy friendly, though families wanting to visit the bluebell woods should be aware of the steps leading down to the woodland. Don't forget to bring your wellies, parts of the woodland can get pretty muddy.

Avoid the crowds

We can't wait to see you this Easter, though you may want to visit after the Easter weekend when things get a little quieter here.

From Good Friday to Easter Monday we're expecting to be busy and carpark space may get strained. If the Easter weekend's the only time you can visit then we recommend a morning visit to guarantee your entry.

The weekends in April are likely to get busy as the bluebells come into bloom so for a calmer experience visit Monday-Friday.

Bring a picnic, beat the queues

Our tea-room is only little, so it can get very busy during Easter. Expect queues if you're visiting during the school holidays or at the weekend.

If it's a sunny day we recommend bringing a picnic along and dining al fresco in our meadow.
