Are you handing out pumpkin prizes this year?
Every year our pumpkin prizes prove to be a big hit. But this year we’re doing something slightly different. We may have lots of building and improvement works going on in the car park and in the parkland this autumn, so we’ll be a little tight on space to store the pumpkins. This year we’ll be giving them a break and we will be handing out an activity pack instead to do in the park, which also includes a creepy mask which you can complete at home.

How much is it to get in?
The trail is £2 per pack, plus the entry price. See prices here.

Can I bring my dog?
Yes the trail will be on a dog friendly route.

Is it accessible?
We have lots of uneven paths and surfaces at Charlecote, which can make a little tough going in places with a pushchair. Good footwear is advisable.

Other helpful information:

  • Toilets - The accessible toilet and baby changing facilities will also be open.

  • Food - Warm up with a hot drink, spooky soup or jacket potato in the Wood Yard with outdoor seating available.

  • Retail - Browse ghoulish gifts and half term goodies in the Servants' Hall Shop.

  • Dogs - this trail will follow a dog-friendly route around the parkland. Dogs must be kept on a lead at all times.
