Pumpkin Trail

Can you unravel the spell?


24 October - 1 November 2020

A spooktacular week of fun!

COVID 19 Safety - We are really pleased to be able to host the Pumpkin Trail this year. Please note that in order to meet social distancing guidelines we ask that you remain in groups of no more than six and that only one family/bubble around each Halloween box at once. Please also be sure to social distance while you are waiting. The Pumpkin Trail will be disinfected daily, however we do recommend carrying hand sanitiser and washing your hands at the lavatories before and after completing the Pumpkin Trail.

Enter at your own risk through the giant spooky gates at the start of Strid Wood. Follow our trail of over-sized pumpkins through Strid Wood and discover the mystery boxes hidden among the trees. Inside each box is a clue to help unravel a mystery! Collect your trail sheet from outside the Cavendish Shop and let the fun commence!
