Now I realize this is a little late to the party post but I wanted to share with you what fun we had during the Easter holidays this year, given that lockdown was easing and that it was my birthday on the day we went as well.
Easter Adventure time!
Cammas Hall is a place ive shared a few times here, we go when we can with my mum whenever the strawberries are out in full bloom and ready for good eats or of course when the pumpkins are ready for picking for Halloween, but I’ve never used the opportunity to go there for any of their other events, this one was a wonderful and fun Easter event that continued through the Easter holidays so there was plenty of time for you to go and enjoy the sunshine and fun.
Cammas Hall Farm is found just outside of Harlow in a small village, neatly tucked away from the busy life of the world, I have always enjoyed going there, I often describe it a fun place to photograph as a lot of my fruit photos that I’ve taken have come from here, they house a range of wonderful fruits and veggies throughout the year that you can go and pick yourself from the obvious strawberries and the less obvious gooseberries, in their shop which is open throughout the year as well they sell local meats, vegetables and home grown and made drinks both soft and alcoholic.
The actual event in which we went and enjoyed was an Easter puzzle trail, that wrapped itself around a beautiful bluebell wood, walking around where the usual cornfield maze stood and out into the future strawberry fields, throughout the trail there was silly Easter related jokes and in the bluebell wood the girls delighted in the sight of fairy doors and houses scattered around the wood and in the trees, it truly was a fun and magical experience walking through the wood.
The aim of the Easter trail was simple, we was given a card each and a pencil, along the trail was lots of different colored bunnies scattered around in trees or on wooden posts, the bunnies were holding an egg with a shape and colour inside, our job was to match the shape with the colour and it would give us a code that would then help uncover the secret word at the end. It was pretty funny trying to guess what the word was half way around, mum and I thought that it was ‘Gruffalo’ as there is a Gruffalo tail that is famous nearby. However once we got the second to last letter, it was clear what the secret word was; it was ‘Truffle’ which is where you can see why we thought it was Gruffalo haha. Once we got to the end of the trail the children were rewarded with some lovely chocolate eggs which they very kindly shared with mum and I.
Also at Cammas Hall there is a huge play park that is open to anyone, the children, during the walk around the trail, had been itching to get at so we grabbed ourselves some drinks from the little farm shop and sat in the sunshine while they played like loonies before the rain started and headed home.
I love going to Cammas Hall, we sadly never got the chance to go last year due to COVID-19, but we are going to try and go more often now that we can, hopefully book up some time during the summer to pick strawberries and of course get some pumpkins for Halloween. I highly recommend anyone who loves near by to go there and have fun, and of course it’s always wonderful to find a local pick your own to visit too.
