Easter egg treasure hunt

An Easter egg treasure hunt on the lower hills around our hostel will start in Easter week.

Starting Monday April 15, on every day 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.”

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

Start looking out for the clues on the hostel’s website blog on Monday April 15.
