We love this spooky time of year. It’s the season for dressing up and venturing out for frights and surprises, and with plenty going on in and around our retreats you’ll be spoilt for ways to keep the kids (and yourselves!) entertained.
As well as all of the wonderful year round activities available at each location we’ve taken out all the guesswork and scoured the surrounding areas for family friendly events this half term school holidays. Here is a selection of our favourites…
Visit Newquay Zoo for its Wicked and Witchy Half Term Freak Week. Located only 5 minutes from Natural Retreats Fistral Beach, it’s the perfect opportunity to get into the spirit of Halloween. There will be wand making workshops, pumpkin carving competitions and even Count Duckula races, just the trick for a kid’s day out.
Stay at Natural Retreats Yorkshire Dales from the 31st of October to 2nd of November and you’ll be perfectly placed to visit Lightwater Valley Theme Park. The weekend will see the park transformed into ‘Frightwater Valley’ with spooky happenings and supernatural goings-on across the whole park. As an extra special treat, Natural Retreats guests will receive half price tickets to this event!
If you fancy a family break in Ireland, Natural Retreats Castlemartyr is a breath-taking destination situated in one of the most historical parts of Ireland. Only 20 minutes away is the beautiful coastal resort of Youghal which plays host to the annual Halloween Festival on the 25th of October. Wander around haunted graveyards, sample the craft fairs and enjoy Halloween parades, pumpkins galore, witches corner and ghastly monsters. This really is an event not to be missed!
