Families stuck for something to do over the Easter holidays might consider taking on Easter egg trails organised in the grounds of some of the area’s stately homes.

Belton House, Woolsthorpe Manor and Tattershall Castle will be hosting the activities and offering participants the opportunity to track down a chocolate prize.

The event at Belton House runs from Saturday, March 30, through to Easter Monday and will feature a pushchair-friendly ‘Mini Chick trail’ and prizes for everyone. It costs £2 to enter and will run from 10.30am until 4pm. Family activites will also be held in the Discovery Centre from 12.30pm to keep the younger children entertained.

The Woolsthorpe Manor trail costs £1.50 to enter, it is on from Friday, March 29, until Easter Monday, 11am until 4pm, with an Easter egg prize up for grabs.

As well as its Easter egg trail, Tattershall Castle’s event will include arts and crafts and the opportunity to have your face painted. It will be on from March 29 to Easter Monday, 11am to 5pm, and costs £2 to attend.

The National Trust has again teamed up with Cadbury to organise the family activities.

Beccy Speight, regional director for the National Trust in the Midlands, said: “Easter is a great time of year for families to get together and have some fun.

“By Easter weekend our places in Lincolnshire are starting to bloom again after the winter, providing a gorgeous backdrop for games and Easter egg trails.

“Easter is always a popular time for families to visit our places and we look forward to greeting as many people as possible again this year.”
