Halloween Family Fun

family-Honest MumYesterday we headed to Famer Copleys in Pontefract, just outside Leeds for some seasonal family fun at their annual Pumpkin Festival!

Copleys Farm-Honest Mum

A grand farm enveloped by expansive fields that feel like you’re on a film set, the atmosphere feels magical, but not in a fabricated fake way-it feels authentic, you’re on a farm that happens to be bursting with Halloween-inspired entertainment!

Bar the pics I’m in, I took the shots in this post-hope you like them!

So much effort has been taken on Copleys’ part: sensational Halloween decorations (natural ones too with those pretty orange physalis below), assistants dressed as witches and pumpkins, every Halloween-inspired delicacy you can think of on offer to eat from pumkin soup to toffee apples, parkin and more, traditional sweet shops on site, a florists, tractors you can play and pose on and most of all, activities to keep the kids and you entertained all day!

I simply can’t recommend visiting Copleys enough!

…The highlight of my day was us running around choosing pumpkins to carve (which we actually spent an hour doing) and was joyous…

Oliver loved having his face painted as batman (his latest obsession) and proudly displayed his sparkly batman tattoo to everyone else we met there! It’s a friendly place with kids mixing and playing together, a special atmosphere that makes you want to go back again. I’d return again today if I could!
