With the spring blooms looking lovely and spring finally in the air, Hestercombe has plenty on offer for families looking to enjoy the outdoors this Easter.

Join in the fun with the children as they complete Hestercombe’s special Easter garden trail to find the contents of the Easter Bunny’s basket. When they’ve completed the trail, they can claim a delicious hand-crafted chocolate bunny, made locally by Cocoa’s. The trail runs until 17 April and includes an egg for the children to decorate themselves and costs just £1.50 to take part.

Grown-ups can enjoy something a little more refined for their Easter treat in the Column Room Restaurant, where Hestercombe is offering delicious triple chocolate scones, mini Easter biscuits and dark chocolate truffles with a decadent Easter afternoon tea. Views over the stunning Edwardian Garden and the Blackdown Hills will make your Easter extra special.

Don’t forget to visit the Hestercombe Gallery this Easter, where Hestercombe’s latest exhibition “Regions of Light” is being held, showcasing the work of Jem Southam, Rebecca Chesney, the Revd John Eagles and Paul Desborough.
