This October half-term why not brave the weather, wrap up warm and join us for an autumnal pumpkin trail around the park?
We have our pumpkin trail running throughout the Warwickshire half-term holiday from Saturday 26 October until Sunday 3 November. Available everyday from reception – just make sure you arrive with plenty of time to complete the trail as you need to return to our reception building in the car park to collect your prize!.
The trail costs £2 and you will be given a map of the park with a series of spooky clues. Solve the clues and be presented with a pumpkin of your own to take home.
You could use your pumpkin to carve a fearsome face or perhaps make something delicious like pumpkin pie!
There are some very impressive photos of carved pumpkins on pinterest if you need some inspiration!
Putting the house to bed…
3 November is also our last day of the ‘main season’. This means the house will be open weekends only in November and December. The half term could be a perfect time to get one last glance of the house before it is prepared for Christmas and then cloaked in dust sheets.
Our House Elves will be spending their time on our winter clean and putting the house to bed. We’ll have some blog posts from them throughout this time so you can find out more! It will mean that on our open weekends there will be limited access to some rooms as work progresses. This is reflected in a reduced entry rate for the House in these winter months.
Oh, and whilst you’re exploring the park, do look out for our specially marked ghost trees!
