EGG hunters will have to crack clever clues to unearth £10,000 worth of prizes in this year’s Great Peter Rabbit Egg Hunt.

The one-day event will span the Lake District countryside, where 50 handcrafted ceramic eggs will be placed in safe-to-reach sites on favourite family walks.

All 50 eggs offer a prize, but 12 are associated with top prizes totalling £10,000.

First prize offers a family of four train travel to London, a two-night hotel stay and tickets to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show to see the Peter Rabbit Herb Garden.

Other prizes include luxury stays at Lake District hotels and tickets for local attractions.

An online map and a clue takes egg hunters to the general location of each egg.

Each egg is a unique, collectable item and allows family entry in to The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction, Bowness, and a copy of the Tale of Peter Rabbit story.

The Egg Hunt, in aid of WaterAid, will be launched on April 16 at 10am online at
