Join us at Baddesley this October half term for a whole week of fiendish fun and frights for the whole family to enjoy.

Explore the garden and grounds on our outdoor trail, find all the clues and complete the trail to receive a prize at the end! The trail is on from Saturday 26 October to Sunday 3 November and costs £2.50 per trail.

On your way round, make sure you take a stroll around the vegetable garden to see what produce we’re growing. We've got pumpkins and gourds in lots of different colours, enormous courgettes and lots of beautiful flowers brightening up the borders.

Our pumpkins are getting bigger by the day!

If you fancy a longer adventure, head out on to the estate, roam free, be adventurous, and get messy and creative on our natural play trail inspired by the animals that live in the Warwickshire countryside.

Whilst you're there, see how many 50 Things before you’re 11 ¾ activities you can tick off. You could try building a den in the woods, having fun with sticks or simply pulling on those wellies and going wandering!

We also have plenty of ghost stories to share in the house. Ask our volunteers about a lady in grey who wanders the house at night, a ghostly portrait that appears on the wall and a dog who begs to an empty chair.

Don't forget to pop over to the Barn Restaurant after your adventure for a delicious hot chocolate and a well-deserved piece of cake!
