- Discover carpets of bluebells on Clent
You can find bluebells in lots of areas on the Clent hills this Easter weekend!
One of the best spots is in the valley behind the Four Stones, where the sides of the valley are covered in bluebells, and the woods at the bottom of the valley are also carpeted in them.
From the Nimmings Wood car park, head up the easy access path to the viewpoint near the top. From there, head down towards the log pile and gate in the bottom left corner of the slope. As you approach the log pile, take the path on the left heading behind you round into the Bluebell Valley.
If you’d like to go further off the beaten track and discover more bluebell woods, then head over to Walton Hill. Most of the wooded areas have bluebells dotted through them and they spring up on many of the open grassland.
If you are parking at Nimmings Wood, visit the Welcome Point near the cafe and the staff can point you in the right direction.
- Hanbury Hall Easter egg hunt
Explore the delightful parkland at Hanbury by following their Easter trail, completing spring fun challenges on the activity sheet as you go along.
Spot the bees buzzing along, discover what spring plants are growing and see the lambs wobbling on new legs. At the end of your trail, pick up your chocolate egg prize or allergen free reward!
This is running from Thursday 1 – Sunday 18 April (whilst stocks last), 9.30am-4pm (last entry at 3.30pm)
