Cadbury Easter Egg trails at Sunnycroft

Over Easter weekend Sunnycroft, the National Trust villa in Wellington, will be decorated for a traditional Easter at home with the Dining Room laid for an Easter breakfast and beautiful Edwardian Easter cards on display around the house. Visitors may even spot some costumed characters around the house and grounds over Easter weekend.

For Easter weekend in the house there will be a free Easter chicken trail for children to spot some feathered friends, whilst in the garden there will be a new Cadbury Easter Egg hunt starting at the Conservatory as well as free Easter craft activities to get stuck into. During the main school holidays there will also be a hare themed trail outside in the garden for children to partake in some Easter fun along with games such as skittles, badminton and croquet on the main lawn.

For those who won’t be hunting for eggs the Edwardian style tea-room will be serving simnel cake and hot chocolate, which can be enjoyed inside or out on the veranda.

Tea Room Supervisor, Lizzie Bennett says: “The garden is bursting into life and we are looking forward to a busy weekend. The best Staffordshire china, as used by the family, will be out on the Dining Room table and we have a wonderful team of volunteer florists arranging displays to add some Easter cheer.”

Sunnycroft is open on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays from 10.30am to 5pm, with last admission to the house at 4pm.  Normal admission charges apply, Cadbury Easter Egg trail £2.50 per child, School holiday trail £2 per child.
