October half-term and Halloween in Oxfordshire

This half-term is jam-packed with spooky trails, autumn crafts and piles of pumpkins at our places. Orange is about to become your favourite colour, or worst nightmare.

Greys Court 

There are lots of opportunities to get out and about at Greys Court this October half term. There are lots of crispy leaves to swish, sticks to build dens from and conkers galore to collect.
