Autumn has arrived, and there’s nothing more that we love than the anticipation that comes with autumn. From Hallowe’en to fireworks night, the season is filled with happy occasions for you to share with your family and friends. Whether you go picking pumpkins to get that insta-worthy photo, or just love carving a scary face, here are four of the best pumpkin patches in the North West.
Chadderton; Lancaster Park and Animal Farm
One of the best places to go with the family in Oldham, Lancaster Park and Animal Farm are really getting into the spooky spirit. There are several sessions happening throughout October where guests can explore the pumpkin patch, before choosing the lucky gourd to carve. There is also a costume competition for the younger guests, as well as a spooky haunted house.
Ashton-under-Lyne; Cockfields Farm
The Pumpkin Festival at Cockfields Farm in Ashton-under-Lyne kicks off October by adding pumpkin picking to their list of family-friendly activities. Visitors can collect a wheelbarrow, and pick the perfect pumpkin, before heading to the spooky carving cave to create something terrifying. There are also rides suitable for children, as well as a Hallowe’en-themed treasure hunt.
Altrincham; The Dunham Pumpkin Patch
The pumpkin patch in Dunham Massey, near Altrincham, is the perfect place for grown-ups. When you’ve picked your perfect pumpkin, you can enjoy a slice of pizza and homemade cider. The cider is also made from the apples you can see by the pumpkin patch!
Warrington; Kenyon Hall Farm
With over 15,000 pumpkins to choose from, Kenyon Hall Farm are ready to welcome back guests to their pumpkin patch! There are pumpkins of all sizes and colours, and guests are armed with wheelbarrows to collect their haul. After spending time in the fields, you can enjoy something warm in the café!
