Visited yesterday (5 April) weather was wonderful which set off the landscaped park and lake. There were so many water fowl, the children began to count but lost count as there were so many! We initially visited to transfer our grandchildren to our daughter, but enjoyed our time helping on the Easter egg hunt. Don't think it was very well set out, had to guess in some places where to go. The first egg board was lying down under the trees and my daunter only just spotted it. Some of the first rhododendrons were in bloom, a pleasing site in the sunshine after such a miserable Easter. The daffodils were also lovely. Thought the Easter Egg hunt was a bit expensive at £3 each and paid 50p for a sheet showing the water fowl and their chicks to match them up. Would have been better if there had been the young chicks to see instead of on the information boards. Much better value when the young are actually there with the parent birds. Other NT house and gardens Easter Egg hunts were not so much, so not sure why the prices vary as the eggs are the same. Would probably visit again to meet our daughter and children but 50+miles just to visit when we have some good NT house and gardens nearer to home would be doubtful. The parking is limited too, had to park in a small car park in West End Lane. Handy having NT membership and my daughter has a family card.
