Join the Easter Egg Hunt at Hestercombe, part of our easter activities for kids in Somerset
Join the Easter Egg Hunt Trail at Hestercombe this Easter! Signs of spring are popping up everywhere at Hestercombe – there are daffodils in the gardens, birds chirping in the trees and ducks splashing on the pond. Mother Duck has hidden Easter eggs all around the gardens for Dotty Duckling to find, but she has been so busy hunting for them that she is going to be late for tea! Will you join the Easter Egg Hunt and help Dotty…
