Easter adventures in nature

Thursday 1 to Sunday 18 April (whilst stocks last), 10am-4.30pm (last entry at 3.30pm)

Adventure packs cost £3 each and are available from reception at the Devil's Cauldron entrance (EX20 4BH). The Easter adventures in nature trail can be purchased on the day, no booking is required.

Pick up a pack containing your activity sheet and pencil, then follow the trail around the orchard for an Easter adventure in nature. Watch out for the trail boards and be inspired to take a closer look at the sights and sounds of spring. Each pack has a reward of a chocolate egg (an alternative allergen free reward is available on request).

Dogs are welcome, please keep them on the lead at all times. The trail runs over some rough grass and a couple of steps, making it unsuitable for buggies.

The Devil's Cauldron tea-room will be open for takeaway drinks and light snacks at peak times.

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

You don’t need to book your Easter trails, but you will need to book if you would like to visit Whitelady Waterfall on the circular walking route.
