If you’re staying with us this half term, why not get involved with some of the local Halloween activities that are happening in the local area?! There is so much going on!
Just ten minutes drive away from the holiday lets, you will find Pontac Pumpkins. So grab your wellies and take yourselves and the little ones pumpkin picking!
They supply wheel barrows, should you want to stock up on a few pumpkins and there are plenty of photo opportunities on site.
Entry is £10 per car, with the price being redeemable off any pumpkins you pick. You must book your time slot on their website in advance. Unfortunately dogs aren’t allowed on the farm.
Fifteen miles away is Newham Grange Farm who are hosting lots of Halloween activities, ideal for younger children.
From now until Friday 29th October you can pick your own pumpkins (£3 each) and follow the spooky Halloween trail (admission fees apply and tickets must be purchased in advance on their website).
For Halloween weekend (30th – 31st October) there will be spooky characters to meet, pumpkin carving and crafts and on the spot prizes for the best fancy dress costumes.
On Sunday 31st, head along to Preston Park Museum for their spooky walk.
With two walks available, one for younger children (4-5pm) with Halloween quests to solve and one for the slightly braver kids and adults (7-8pm) with a walk deep into the woods.
Vehicle access is only available via the special event coaches, the closest pick up to the holiday lets being Thornaby Town Centre Bus Stop.
Enjoy a game of creepy crazy golf at Holey Molies which is less than 3 miles from our holiday lets!
Open 10am – 9pm every day this half term, the 18 hole golf course is great fun for all of the family. They also serve hot home cooked food and drinks too, a great way to spend a few hours.
