TINY little doors from another world have miraculously appeared in west Dorset.

A Secret Garden Easter Trail is being held at Mapperton gardens near Beaminster from April 7 to 22, where the tiny doors are nestled among the trees in the lower gardens.

Behind each door lives native fairies and wood elves who guard the arboretum from mischievous creatures.

Children will need to crack the secret woodland code by collecting the letters noted on the tiny doors, which will spell out a special word. Let Peaseblossom in the Fairy Tavern know the word in return for a mini Easter egg filled with chocolate buttons from artisan chocolate company Chococo.

In addition to the secret trail, there’s also an Easter egg hunt with extra entertainment from Strawberry Jam the clown taking place on Easter Sunday, April 21 and Easter Monday, April 22.

Under 16s are just £5 for entrance to the gardens for the Easter trail and Easter fun days upon arrival to the attraction. Visit Mapperton.com for more information.
