Berrington Hall in Herefordshire is another great day out, with lots to do for families, an excellent place for picnics, and for the kids to roam.
Berrington Hall is in the beautiful Herefordshire countryside, just off the A49.
We braved the April showers (it didn't rain once, though) on Easter Sunday and made one of the many excellent Easter Trails that the National Trust run for families.
This is our second one this Easter, as we completed the trail at Croome Park (which is also another 'Capability' Brown landscaped parkland).
Well, as well as being a historic house and plenty of ground for the kids to run around in, what's for families?
- Lots of room for picnics and games - we played Giant connect-4.
- A woodland play park, and when we visited, an area for making dens.
- Large cafe.
- Lots, and lots, of open space.
- The house also features an old playroom with old toys, so something the kids can relate to and compare how much stuff they have these days.
We had visited Berrington Hall before on one of its open days in the Summer, where the people giving the tours were all dressed in costume, the kids were allowed to pick up and try on some of the exhibits, and they'd also opened up a tunnel that goes under the central courtyard where the cafe tables are.
The Easter trial was another excellent event, and another three Easter Eggs were gained.
Slightly different to Croome Park, but just as good. Even our youngest (3 years old) could follow the clues and find all the creatures leading to the Easter Bunny.
As well as the Easter Trail, free face painting was available. The artist was very good.
