The Lockdown exit plan is ;

  • From 29 March, outdoor gatherings (including in private gardens) of either 6 people (the Rule of 6) or 2 households will also be allowed, making it easier for friends and families to meet outside.

A little bit further away, ( about 25 mins away by car) but what Easter would be complete without a visit here for an Easter egg hunt….


Join an Easter adventure in nature at Mottisfont. Discover family-friendly trail with fun activities for you to do along the way. Complete the trail and earn your chocolate reward at the end. We know how much joy our Easter egg trails bring to our visitors each year and we hope this year will be the same. However, we ask that you support your local property and tickets must be booked in advance.

Monday 29th March till Sunday 11th April 10am-4:30pm. £3 per trail, normal property admission applies (free for National Trust members and under 5s).

Pick up your trail pack and discover loads of fun challenges for children, from planting seeds to designing bug hotels.

You don’t need to book your Easter trails, but you will need to book your Easter visit.  To manage visitor numbers so that social distancing can be ensured for the safety of our staff, volunteers and visitors, the pre-booking system still applies. Booking will provide access to the property, not the Easter adventures in nature trail, which can be purchased on the day.

Tickets are released every Friday, so you won’t be able to book your Easter visit until Friday 26th March. Click here to book

Indoor attractions cannot open until 17th May, so unfortunately won’t be able to enjoyed during the Easter holidays.
