What better place to celebrate Easter than at the Farm surrounded by chicks, lambs and bunnies? Join in with the fabulous Longdown Easter trail, which is suitable for the whole family. Search for the clutches of eggs in their specIal nests, which are hidden around the Farm. Children will receive a little yummy chocolate treat at the end of the trail.

Also, for older children and adults, keep a look out for the very special golden eggs: ten will be hidden around the Farm at the beginning of each day. They are VERY hard to find, so an 'eggs-tra' special chocolatey gift will be given to those who are fortunate enough to find one!

Easter Sunday ONLY (27th March 2016): Every child that arrives at the Farm in their own Easter bonnet will be allowed entry at a concessionary rate of £5.00 each. Sorry, these concessionary tickets cannot be bought online and must be paid for on arrival at the Farm. (Cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer.)
