So if you are feeling a little braver, come down to the Pumpkin Patch in the evening to pick your your perfect pumpkin in the darkness of night...

Make sure you remember a torch if you want to try and complete the Maize Maze, although this isn't for the faint hearted! Our Pumpkin Cannons will also be open if you are looking for something a little more thrilling! 

Our Pumpkin Nights will be open every evening on the 23rd, 24th, and the 26th to the 30th of October.

Our Maize Maze is spread over 4 acres and is full of all sorts of twists and turns to keep you entertained!

There will also be a mini game to play. See if you can find all the letters to make a Hallowe'en related word! You will then get the chance to enter one of our competitions.

The entry to the Maize Maze is £3.00 per person (0-3 yr olds / non-walkers go free) and will be open all day from 10am to 8pm (on selected dates). On the 26th and 31st the Maize will close at 5pm.


We are very excited to announce that we are the first attraction in the UK to have our very own pumpkin cannon! 

So come on down and pay as you go to fire pumpkins at our Hallowe'en target range! (Please note under 13s must be accompanied by an adult, and under 6s will not be allowed to fire the cannon).

Our Pumpkin Cannon will close at 8:30pm except on the 26th and 31st when it will close at 4:30pm.
