Families hunting for a treat this Easter are being gifted with a long weekend of special events hosted by Enys Gardens.

The estate near Penryn is always a popular attraction, particularly during the spring with huge numbers coming to see the large swathes of bluebells slightly later in the year.

Before that though the gardens opened on Friday, Saturday and Sunday for special Covid-secure Easter Egg Hunt, with the final one taking place tomorrow (Easter Monday).

The garden will be open from 11am to 5pm, with booking via the calendar section of the Enys Gardens website.

Each day the egg hunters had to find clues in giant ostrich-sized wooden eggs hidden in the gardens.

It was then back to base where they could claim their chocolate eggs.

Some seasonal new additions to the estate

In addition to the many young children visiting, this weekend has also seen some particularly seasonal new additions to the estate – eight tiny Easter ducklings on the pond, staying close to mum and enjoying the sunshine.

After the bank holiday Enys will be open during normal hours going forwards: Tuesday and Thursday afternoons and Sundays 11am to 5pm, with Wednesday afternoons for members only. All visits much be pre-booked via the website.
