Celebrating Halloween with pumpkins at Claydon, Buckinghamshire.

Pack your potions and put on your pointed hat and head to Springhill this Halloween for a spooktacular 5 days of scary escapades. The witches and wizards will descend on Springhill House, Moneymore at 11am on Saturday 27 October until 4pm on Wednesday 31 October.

Enter the house at your own risk and see if you can last the entire tour as you follow in the footsteps of our resident ghost Olivia. Kids and adults beware as you visit one of the rooms under the house which is never opened for the public and listen to spooky tales of strange and unexplained events occurring in the mansion over the years.

Blow away the cobwebs on the outdoor natural trail where you will explore creepy creepers and wicked shrubs around the estate. Make it to the end for your tricky treat!

On Saturday and Sunday there will be pumpkins for you to choose your favourite and carve with the witches and wizards in the top courtyard. There are creepy face stencils, ghoulish games and crafts to be made, stick skeletons and magic wizard wands to name a few.

Springhill will remain open from 11am-4pm from Thursday 1 November until Sunday 4 November for half term fun and activities. Outdoor explorers can enjoy our adventure play park, but watch out for the huge spider and don’t get stuck in its web!! See how many of our ‘50 Things to Do before you’re 11 ¾’ you can tick off before going back to school.

There are lots of seasonal goodies in The Barn Shop and maybe a chance of early Christmas gift shopping. Certainly something for everyone.

The Barn Cafe will be open throughout half-term, serving freshly baked treats alongside Halloween horror bakes, bone-warming seasonal lunches and hearty soups. Enjoy a ‘trick and treacle’ scone with a pumpkin spiced latte, relax and soak up the atmosphere.

Spooky Springhill event runs from Saturday 27 October to Wednesday 31 October

Normal Admission. National Trust Members and Under 5’s Free.
