Easter holidays at Mottisfont

Children on a Cadbury Egg Hunt at Easter

Enjoy a day out at Mottisfont this Easter with a Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt throughout the school holidays, 30 March - 15 April. Become a 'mini ranger' for the day and find out how our countryside team look after our beautiful estate.

Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt

£2 per trail, normal property admission applies

Study 'mini-beasts' under the microscope, investigate the life of bats in Mottisfont's medieval cellarium, spot river wildlife, and hunker down in a tent to discover sounds of the estate at night. There are loads more fun nature activities to get stuck into, plus Cadbury chocolate treats for all participants.

Our Easter hunts are extremely popular, especially over the bank holiday weekend (30 March - 2 April). We don't always have access to our overflow parking area, and our car park can fill up quickly on our busiest days. If you'd prefer to avoid bigger crowds, you might like to try a midweek visit instead. 

Visiting Mottisfont with your family

There’s plenty of space to run, jump and play around our grounds, and always something for families to do.

As well as challenging yourself with our half-term activity trail, you can explore our Wild Play areas when you visit, including Boggy Climbing and Pump, Pool and Paddle.
