Easter Egg Trail at Kingston Lacy, Dorset

I know you probably read the title and thought, EASTER?! But if you read our busy post, you will understand why it’s taken me so long to get round to sharing how we spent Easter.

Last year we had such a lovely time taking part in the Easter egg hunt at Kingston Lacy, that we decided to return this year. It was a gorgeous sunny day, with lots of visitors making their way round the trail, which was really nice to be part of.

Kingston Lacy set their Easter egg trail around the woodlands to the right of the main house. It takes you on a lovely loop through a wooded area and past a fab children’s play area. Everything about the trail is focused on the natural environment.

We came across stumps turned into games of noughts and crosses. We posted for the camera in picture frames made from hanging branches and lots of interesting prompts stopped us to take in the nature around us.

The lovely thing about the Easter Egg trail at Kingston Lacy is that you get a little booklet to fill in on the way round, for £2.50 and a chocolate egg on completion of the trail.

The day we visited the sun was super hot, so it was nice to find some shade among the trees. Though the sun was a really nice bonus to enjoy as we walked the trail.

Once we’d completed the trail we visited the National Trust cafe for some ice creams. We usually treat ourselves to their gorgeous selection of cakes, but as it was hot we went for something to cool us down.

The Easter egg trail at Kingston Lacy is certainly a must do if you find yourself in North Dorset during the Easter week next year.
