TO CELEBRATE Easter and to mark the lifting of lockdown restrictions, Stonor Park near Henley-on-Thames, has announced its annual Easter trail.

Hosted in its new adventure playground, Tumblestone Hollow and around the beautiful grounds of the estate, the trail runs across the children’s school holidays from Friday, April 2, to Sunday, April 18.

Families will be able to explore the park to find clues, solve puzzles and word searches and receive a special chocolate treat at the Visitor Centre.

Tickets start from £8.50 and include access to the Easter Trail, the gardens and Tumblestone Hollow, the park’s magical new adventure playground which is nestled in the parkland.

Suitable for children aged between four and 12 years old, Tumblestone Hollow is themed around the ancient stone circle from which the house takes its name – and introduces the characters who live in the playground, within its accompanying children’s book The Legend of Tumblestone Hollow, written by well-known author Amy Sparkes and available to purchase from the Visitor Centre.

Commenting on the annual event, William and Ailsa Stonor, custodians of Stonor Park said: “We are absolutely delighted that Stonor can open its Easter event again this year and it is extra special for us as Easter is also the opening weekend of our amazing new playground, Tumblestone Hollow.

“Whilst the restrictions don’t allow for bigger celebrations, they do allow for some special reunions and we hope that our Easter trail and spending a few hours at Tumblestone Hollow will be a happy and magical day out for visitors – who may well be meeting up with their families for the first time since Christmas.”

All visitors should follow the government’s Covid-19 roadmap rules outlined in step 1, which permit that from March 29, people will be able to meet outside in groups up to a maximum of six people (the Rule of six) or with one other household, though people from different households will still need to socially distance from each other.

The spectacular stately house has been the home of the Stonor family for the last 850 years, making it one of the oldest family residences in the UK.

The historic building, with its 250 acres of sweeping grounds and beautiful gardens, was constructed on the site of an ancient stone circle, which dates back to the late Neolithic age.
