Now that our "Indian" summer has been and gone and the children are back to…
Halloween at Hall Farm Self Catering Cottages in Norfolk
Something wicked this way comes and that is certainly the case this week at Hall Farm as there are plenty of delightfully devilish local events taking place that are sure to get your spine tingling! Our self catering cottages in Norfolk are the perfect place to spend the autumn months – your own private escape, toasty warm and surrounded by beautiful British countryside and with so much going on – you’ll be spoilt rotten!
Fancy a little trick or treating? Hop on that broomstick and head down to the Pensthorpe Nature Reserve & Gardens from Saturday 27th October until Sunday 4th November for a chilling self-guided tour of the reserve. Uncover a multitude of mysterious facts and, for those who complete the trail or arrive in fancy dress, win a perilous prize!
Just 2 miles away from our stunning self catering cottages in Norfolk is the terrific and terrifying Bewilderwood. An award winning adventure park, Bewilderwood is a fantastic place to visit with the kids this half term.
Join Snagglefang’s Spooky Spectacular, make your own masks and lanterns and take part in a luminous lantern parade but be warned! Their spooktacular event isn’t for the faint hearted! With an unusual rustle in the trees you never know what surprises lurk in the undergrowth! There is plenty going on this half term with luminous lantern parades each evening. To take a peek at the full itinerary, (if you dare) simply click here.
Attention! Attention! The Spooky Express is coming to town and will be stopping by the Bure Valley Railway Station this half term. Join Railway Bear for plenty of surprises and spot some spooky objects along the way. Children travel free when accompanied by a paying adult and with no prior booking required – it’s the perfect last minute adventure.
Feeling brave? Due to popular demand, Creatures of the Night at NWT Ranworth Broad is back! Take a trek after dark on Tuesday 30th October and discover nocturnal wildlife like you’ve never seen it before. Find out what owls eat for lunch, keep your eyes peeled for bats and wrap up warm! You’ll need to brave the cold (and the dark) before heading back to the floating centre for a lovely warm hot chocolate. Yum! Booking is essential so make sure you call ahead to secure your place.
Deep in the middle of the Norfolk Broads, Fairhaven Woodland and Water garden is an unforgettable gem that is a joy to discover and there’s plenty to keep you busy over the next week or so. Join Dr Tony Leech for a ‘Fungi Foray’ on the 27th October between 2pm and 4pm. Forage the woods for an array of frightening fungi (poisonous types included) and don’t forget to bring your camera. There’s not ‘mushroom’ so booking is essential.
If you don’t manage to make it down to the ‘Fungi Foray’, make sure you visit Fairhaven anytime between the 27th October and the 4th November for ‘Grow Your Own Oak Week’. Trawl the woodlands for your own acorn and then plant it in a recycled pot surrounded by Fairhaven’s very own organic leaf compost. There’s no need to book so bring your friends and family and watch that oak tree grow.
With so much going on you’d be mad not to visit our self catering cottages in Norfolk! If you can’t make it down for Halloween – we still have bookings available for Christmas and New Year so get in touch today and visit our beautiful retreat for a good dose of fun for all the family.
