WHAT’S ON FOR THE KIDS?
EASTER EGG HUNTS
19th - 22nd April
This Easter there will be no problem keeping the little ones entertained during your stay in Northumberland. With a choice of Easter egg hunts around the area, there is plenty of
chocolate to go around! The National Trust have teamed up with Cadbury to bring eggciting hunts to various National Trust locations around the country. Twenty four miles away from Amble Links is Cragside, a Victorian house, gardens and woodland, or in other words, the perfect location for an Easter Egg hunt! You will make your way around the lakeside trail to find the clues, solve the puzzles and of course be rewarded with some Cadbury chocolate after all of that hard work. A little further from the park is Wallington. Choose an animal at the beginning of the trail, head out into the West Wood to collect their animal family facts to solve the questions then claim your sweet chocolate treats and rewards.
