Easter holidays at Mottisfont

This article was about Easter activities in 2019 which have now finished. We'll be updating with 2020 Easter information closer to the time.

Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt

Saturday 6 - Monday 22 April, 10am-5pm. £2.50 per trail, normal property admission applies. Please note that we charge our peak season entry prices over the bank holiday weekend.

There are loads of fun nature activities to get stuck into as you follow the trail around the grounds to see what's stirring - find out some fun facts, get active and create a 'bunny hat' to take home. There's a simple egg-spotting trail for little ones, too. And, of course, a delicious Cadbury chocolate treat for all participants.

Our Easter hunts are extremely popular: please be aware that our car park can fill up quickly on busy days, especially on bank holidays or if the weather is good, and we may need to close for short periods if full. You may prefer to visit later in the day - we charge an off-peak entry price from 3.30pm.

Did you know that if you join up as National Trust member when you visit this Easter (from 8 - 24 April) you can take part in any National Trust Easter Egg Hunts for free? Perfect for adventures to our neighbours in Hampshire and beyond... Just ask our visitor reception team when you visit.

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