October Half Term and Halloween Activities

Join the intrepid Coplestone for the Peculiar Potions garden trail this Halloween at Hestercombe, Somerset

Hestercombe’s family garden trails are back this October half-term, and it’s time to find out what crazy concoction Mrs. Bampfylde could be cooking up in her cauldron!

Join the intrepid Coplestone on a Halloween walk through the gardens as you keep an eye out for the special ingredients needed to complete his mother’s mysterious potion – from sweet honeycomb near the Hestercombe beehives, to a suspicious pink liquid by the Witch’s Hut…

When you’re done, head back to the plant centre for a special Halloween reward. Suitable for children aged 3+

October Half Term and Halloween Activities

Saturday 24th October until Sunday 1st November: Coplestone and the Peculiar Potions garden trail (NB closed 26th & 27th October)

Enjoy stomping around the autumn gardens at Hestercombe; there are 50 acres of outdoor space around the gardens to have fun in, from splashing around the Great Cascade to climbing huge fallen-down trees and exploring the wildlife around the estate.

Follow your visit to the gardens with some delicious hot or cold food and drink from the Stables Cafe.
