Have a Spooktacular Halloween in the West Country

You can be sure of some ghoulish goings on and garish make-up at a number of Halloween-themed events across the West Country this October. We don't know 'witch' to be more frightened of - the scary themes or terrible puns!

Woodlands Park is holding Devon's Greatest Halloscream week with a special Spooks Olympics - with 8 wicked games to choose from, including Ring the Mummy and Bash a Beast. There's also a Ghost Train creepy enough to scare big monsters.

It's all a bit more sedate at Pennywell Farm, where the team are preparing for the Pennywell Pumpkin Olympics. Take part in the pumpkin and giant spoon race, pumpkin tossing, pumpkin skittles and have a go at the daily competition for the longest pumpkin throw. The greatest of all prizes - chocolate - is on offer for daily winners.

There's a special guest coming to Devon’s Crealy Great Adventure Park on Halloween - Scooby Doo will be bringing his unique brand of canine fun to the proceedings.

And last but not least, if you head on down to the Eden Project (pictured above) you can meet the witch from Room on the Broom - she’ll welcome you into her lovely Cornish holiday home, where she’ll be reading the Room on the Broom story at various times throughout the day. With other activities including potion workshops and wand-making, there's plenty to keep your young witches and wizards happy!

It's easy to find a safe haven from these terrifying treats - just visit or call us on 01647 433593.
