On Easter Saturday we were meeting my cousin and her family and we wanted to go somewhere that had an Easter egg hunt on. I knew that the National Trust were doing Cadbury egg hunts and I looked for one that we could both easily travel to. White Horse Hill looked like a great option and it was somewhere that we hadn’t been to before.
We were really lucky that the Easter weekend was really warm, but luckily not too hot and there was a nice breeze on the hills. When we arrived there was plenty of parking and you can scan your National Trust card to get free parking. There is no entry fee, so if you’re not National Trust members, it is only the car parking you will have to pay for.
We had to pay a couple of pounds for the children to do the Easter trail, but obviously if you visit at other times of the year this wouldn’t be there.
It is worth noting that there are no toilets at all at White Horse Hill. The closest ones are in the nearby village. There is also no cafe, or anywhere to buy food and drink. It is literally a car park and the hill. If you’re lucky there might be an ice cream van in the car park!
We headed off for a walk and to do the trail along the way. There is so much space for the kids to run and burn off all that energy they have. It would be a great place to fly a kite.
There were sheep wandering around, but they kept themselves away from us.
The trail was lots of questions about White Horse Hill and what they could see around them.
We had brought a picnic with us and Holly insisted on carrying the picnic rug the whole way round. To be fair to her, she did carry it!
The views were amazing and you can see across six counties.
As we were coming back around towards the end and back to where we started, we still hadn’t see the White Horse! Then as we turned back to look, Alice spotted it on the side of the hill.
We had walked all the way around it.
We stopped for a picnic and had brought picnic rugs to sit on. There is a small picnic area with a couple of picnic benches. The kids had finished the trail and went to collect their Easter egg.
We had a lovely few hours at White Horse Hill and we definitely want to go back with our kite to fly.
