Every day this week leading up to Easter Sunday, we will publish a clue here on our website.

The clues will lead treasure seekers onto the lower fells around our village of Elterwater in the Langdale valley, and the locations will reveal a voucher to be exchanged for a prize egg at the hostel.

The treasure hunt is an extension of a successful scheme which has been arranged in and around the grounds of the hostel in previous years.

“All ages love going on a treasure hunt,” said hostel manager Nick Owen. “We wanted to add a bit of extra adventure this year and open up the competition to all visitors to the Lakes. And everyone likes chocolate.”

“The clues might be cryptic, or contain a map reference, but the locations will all be in safe and easily reached places.”
