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!

Love how tightly Oliver is holding his brother here!

    Looks like you and the boys had such a great time. I didn’t even know you could do anything like this and I must look into it next year. Great photo opportunities and I love the idea of carving the pumpkin out of the house! I love your photos, hun, especially the one of the orange physalis and the sweet jars. x

    Ah it looks like a great place to visit and a very fun day out. My girls would love this, they are a bit too little at the moment but next year we will have to have a search in our area for something like this. Lovely photos too. x

    Wow, now I’m sorry we missed it there this weekend. We have plans to go to Farmer Copley’s this week to pick out a few pumpkins and carve! Can’t wait. Looks like you had a fab time. I love the Batman face paint and I know two little boys here that would love it too! 🙂
