Hi. My name is Sarah and as it turns out, I am slightly obsessed with Autumn. Look I even have a giant pumpkin speckled Pinterest board of Autumn shizz. So, when Hatton Adventure World invited us to visit and pick up a pumpkin, I was there before you could say cosy socks and open fires.
We’ve visited Hatton Adventure World before and loved the animals and play areas. This time, we were all about the pumpkins. After the grumpy pumpkin incident last week, the boy one informed me that morning “I pick up pumpkin, I NO BE A PUMPKIN”. Well, that’s me told then.
We arrived at opening time and had a little peek into the shops on the way in (giant bottles of ale spotted by the husband and now on his Christmas list).
We made our way around the park, spotted the spooky tractor taking people off on rides and said hi to the pigs. There were ghastly ghouls and pretty pumpkins all over the place. A really fiendish feel but perfectly pitched, not too scary, for little ones.
One of my favourite things about Hatton is the atmosphere, the staff are friendly, it’s never too packed or busy and as we wandered around, even though it was half term, this was true as ever. After a good few hours of fun climbing the play areas and playing on the diggers, I couldn’t be restrained any longer and we went in search of the pumpkin field.
Call me crazy (“CRAZY”) but there’s something totally magical about finding these pumpkins hiding in a field. They are bright, shining jewels on a grey day, waiting to be found. They remind me of a holiday to New England in fall a few years ago, where there were giant pumpkin patches along the side of every road. It turns out that picking a pumpkin here is just as exciting.
Despite trying to pick up some giant ones, they both wanted “tiny litttttttle pumpkins” to take home, which Daddy was very grateful for (he’d have been carrying) and I was only slight sad (did I mention I love the pumpkins?).
Fancy a trip to Hatton Adventure World? There’s 4 tickets up for grabs, enter this week by completing the competition below.
Now, what to do with these pumpkins.. Do you dread the dark nights or are you an Autumn loving pumpkin-maniac like me?
