Easter Egg Hunts                      

There are several Easter Egg Hunts in the area including:

Greenway House – 25 March – 10 April 2016

Once the residence of Agatha Christie, Greenway House is hosting Cadbury’s Easter Egg Hunts over the holiday in which all the family can participate. For those interested in horticulture it’s a great place to explore the spring gardens and marvel at the work of the garden team there.

Easter events will be taking place at Greenway House between 10:30am and 4pm each day. For more information and directions visit the National Trust website.

Overbeck’s Gardens and Museum, Salcombe  25 –  28 March 2016

Another National Trust Easter event, there are not only Easter Egg Hunts over the Bank Holiday Weekend but quizzes to help you find the Cadbury’s chocolate eggs. Children will love the Cadbury’s Easter Bunny who will be there to help them explore.

Events over the 3 day period will begin at 11:00 am and finish at 16:30pm. Entrance fee is £3 for each child and there is no need to book in advance. Just turn up at Overbeck’s and you will be welcome. For more details call 01548 842893 or visit the National Trust website
