Thought I would share this today as family going for an Easter egg hunt. A bit of fun in the countryside and an egg at the end 🏻

Fancy painting and other stuff to do also

You have to pay parking at national trust rates
Fill your Easter with family fun, delicious Cadbury treats, and eggciting egg hunts! We’ve partnered with the National Trust and National Trust for Scotland to create lots of action-packed days out, so for a real Easter adventure, why not bring the whole family to one of our Cadbury Easter Egg Hunts?

Nice post Op HEAT
Looks as though this needs the usual admission fee for national trust properties, as well as the cost of the Easter hunt.

Although it looks as though you can still do the hunt at countryside sites as well

Does anyone know if there any good National Trust discounts for Family Membership at the moment? (they usually discount it just after I purchase our annual membership!)

Just done ours, it was just the parking to pay and then £2.50 pp , was a good couple of hours spent
We went the other day at Robin Hoods Bay it wasn't on bit of a wasted trip but ah well

Most places you have to pay the admission fee and the £2.50.

We joined at a property last week and they were giving out vouchers for free unlimited egg hunts when you took out membership. They were valid until the 28th and give each child in your party an egg hunt at each property you visit.
All the ones near us require entry fees which are about £16pp plus the £2.50 for the egg hunt!

Thanks @portway - I have found that this offer seems to still be on hotukdeals.com/vou…360 which is a £10 NT gift voucher for joining. Otherwise I presume that they got lots of new members anyway at Easter so don't have to run big discount offers this early in the season.
Was free at one time....Now, everything has a charge...in Scotland

That’s pants. Try and find a forest or woodland one, they can’t charge you entry to woods and only parking

Yeah sadly none round our way, all ones with houses or buildings charge
We did this on Wednesday in Rhossili (Wales) kids loved it, have fun!
Did this in osterley park. Good fun
What do the kids get from this? Tesco held on the other day and my youngest walked away with a mini creme egg and wasnt much impressed lol.. where as a local care home had arranged one for the kids and they all went home with about 10 little eggs and a medium egg each

Where abouts are you?
I went last year and it was rubbish.
Don't charge you if you are a National Trust member. Join and don't be such a tight arse.

A Cadbury egg. But it's the scenic national trust and fewer people people which is good

Agree, best thing I did with the kids. We now commit one afternoon a weekend away from screens etc enjoying each other in such places. With the free parking it soon pays for itself

£126 a year?! Wow!
Here in the south it seems like the hunt cost is £3.00 as well, not £2.50. Maybe it varies if you go further afield.
We’ve just been to one today. Flatford mill in Suffolk in the beautiful constable country. Cost £5 to park and hunt was £2.50 each for a decent sized hollow Cadbury Easter egg. Was definitely worth it we live in north Essex, 20 mins away
Went to Knole Park in Sevenoaks, £4 parking but stay as long as you want. Kids loved it especially when the Deers turned up to eat everyone’s Sarnies

Hunt was £3 pp

Easily worth it if you use it only once a month even
If you want to experience the exact opposite of a happy easter with happy kids and parents, then please attend one of these... went once, was a total nightmare. Pushy parents and rude kids.

I must be getting paid less than my other southern counterparts then....
Been to two this week and they were both £2 pp. Penrhyn Castle and Plas Newydd.

My grandparents buy us a family NT pass each year for Christmas. Best present they could get us really, saves buying the kids useless toys that they don't need and gives us the chance to have lovely days out without the worry of the cost. We go to around 20 per year. The kids live the different trails and the adventure parks that most have.

Proof of the £2 price can be seen on the NT website:

Went to Cliveden last week, they charge £3. There's nothing to 'hunt' really.....just a map....and you cross off the numbered 'prize points' when you get to them. You could even cross some off without visiting them all, as we did, just to speed things up a little. No one checks as no-one is bothered if you covered the whole course...the whole point is to have some fun and get the kids outdoors!
We had a great time and have been going for years.
No dogs running around is a massive bonus for us!
Went to Hardcastle Crags near Hebden Bridge today. Fiver to park all day (we're members, so nowt for us) and £2.50 each for the kids. We had a great walk around, arguing about the correct collective noun for rabbits, before returning to the stall so the kids could receive a chocolate egg each (6" big or so - plenty enough).

We're huge fans of NT and have been members for 20+ years now (and my parents for more like 50!) Always a good day out and in recent years they've realised that kids are the next generation of membership-payers, so they've got plenty of stuff specifically tailored to them. It's also instilled in them a deep-rooted appreciation of British history, which will set them up for a lifetime. Personally, I love sneaky education so it's worth its weight in gold!

Highly recommended.

Sounds an awesome day arguing about collective nouns.... We were happy to see a rabbit 🐇, not worrying how to say the word
So £7 parking plus £10 each for entry to the gardens plus £2.50! Think I’ll buy my £1 egg from home bargains and stick it in the garden. Plus these aren’t egg hunts there “walks around the garden” with an egg at the end. Did one last year.... total joke!

I guess you're not an NT member, which makes it much cheaper on the day. Ho hum, each to their own.

Depends where you go, only cost me £2.50 each for us and we ain’t a member, just paid £6 parking
North Wales was a bag of Cadbury mini eggs, think it was only £2..
