Hop on down for a great garden adventure with The Rhyming Rabbit this Easter. Keep your eyes peeled for the Rhyming Rabbit on a hop about the garden trail and enjoy craft activities based on the picture book by Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks and brought to you in association with Macmillan Children’s Books. Activities vary daily. Normal garden admission applies.

The Rhyming Rabbit Easter Hop About Trail will take families on a trail around the garden, through a giant burrow meeting the Rhyming Rabbit’s animal friends along the way.

In addition to the interactive trail, both adults and children can take part in drop-in craft activities during holiday weekdays from 11am–12.45pm & 2pm–3.45pm (excluding Easter Bank Holidays) – please see other events.

Really Wild Learning with Kim Insull (ticketed), on Tuesday 9 & 16 April, will help families explore how animals live in the wild in their gardens and what they can do to support wildlife of all kinds. 

Bring the family for a meal at the Garden Kitchen.  Child options include half portions of hot meals, including paninis and jacket potatoes at half price.  Every day there are three freshly-prepared hot main dishes available; these will always include a vegetarian and a gluten-free option. If you have a special dietary requirement please contact us direct and we can tailor the menu for you - call 01805 626822.   We also offer a jute picnic lunch bag, perfect for finding a quiet spot in the garden and eating alfresco. 

Rosemoor offers various activities and facilities for families. 

The Brash
A delightful natural play area set in our pine woodland with living willow structures, sand pit, slide, bug magnifiers, stepping logs and climbing frames. Picnic benches and a wooden shelter are also available.
 
The Copse
Inspired by our 2012 Quentin Blake exhibition, The Copse features a ‘Green Ship’ and has equipment suitable for slightly older children including a see-saw and spiro-giro. There are also stepping logs and living willow sculptures for younger children. A wooden shelter and picnic benches are available and the nearby arboretum lawn is a great place to run and picnic.
 
Garden features
We are always developing interesting features for families to enjoy. The ‘Hobbit Hole’ and ‘Mr McGregor’s Shed’ are favourites and the flower pot man in the Fruit and Vegetable Garden delights visitors young and old. Various sculptures, children’s trails and craft activities throughout school holidays ensure there is always plenty to do.
