About Easter at Dinefwr and Dolaucothi

Create amazing Easter events in West Wales

Join us at Dinefwr, which is home to a National Nature Reserve, historic house, rugged castle, wonderful eighteenth-century landscape, medieval deer park and of course, a wildly popular Easter egg trail for the whole family to enjoy. Or there’s Dolaucothi with its tales of Roman gold, 1930s mine yard, and the wider estate with 25km of footpaths through wildlife-packed parkland, where the Easter egg trail also needs a few pairs of extra hands.
The Easter holidays are one of the busiest times of the year at both places, and there are usually around 2,000 visitors over the weekend enjoying the trails across both estates. When you join the Easter trails team, you'll be doing a variety of activities, all with the aim of creating a memorable day out for families. You could be helping to prepare and lead craft and trail activities, lending a hand with car parking, keeping an eye on the tea rooms, or looking after the Easter trail or raffle. Whatever you do, you’ll be sharing the workload of these much-loved events equally within your team, as well as sharing your love of these incredible places with the families taking part in the trails.
