With its pumpkin patch promising to be bigger, better and plumper than ever this October 2023, it's time to pull on your wellies and hunt down that perfect pumpkin to carve ready for Halloween, at Cotswold Farm Park.

Packed with pumpkins of all shapes, sizes and colours to take home for carving and pie making, the popular family attraction is opening its pumpkin patch on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from Friday 6 October 2023 and throughout half term, from Thursday 26 to Tuesday 31 October 2023.

Wrap up warm for a gourd-geous autumn day out in the Cotswolds, heading over to the field to explore the pumpkin trail, weaving through the paths, before choosing the best pick of the patch to take home. Not forgetting to snap a picture or two in all the selfie stations along the way!

And this year, for £3 extra, little ghouls can get mucky scooping out the gooey innards of their chosen pumpkins, at a carving session in the farm park's on-site crafting tent. 

Free face painting will also be available from 11am each day the patch is open, to transform little monsters into their favourite Halloween characters.

And over in the pumpkin patch's Coffee Tent, delicious autumnal fare will keep you fuelled, with treats such as warming pumpkin spiced lattes and homemade cakes to choose from.

Entry to the pumpkin patch includes a freshly baked Halloween cookie and pumpkin. Additional pumpkins picked start at just £1 per squash.

Entry to the pumpkin patch is included with all farm park tickets but pumpkin patch only tickets can also be purchased for those not wanting to access the main farm park too. Pumpkin field access only tickets start at £4 and pumpkin patch experience tickets start at £10.95.

Holiday guests at the farm park have free access to the pumpkin patch included in the price of their stay.
