If you are staying with us during the October half term there are lots of things to do locally, from pumpkins to pottery painting, witches to ghost trains and autumn-themed activities.
If the weather isn’t looking so good or you need to relax and unwind why not head to Honiton Pottery. Not only can you choose from a huge range of pottery to decorate they also sell delicious ice cream and are well know for their milk shakes, as well as cakes and hot drinks.
Visit Seaton Wetlands, not just to see the birds but to take part in autumn crafts with a Hallowe’en theme.
Trains and trams, fancy dress and ghost trails
Apples and bees
Head over to Quince Honey Farm to celebrate the apple and honey harvest. Quince Honey Farm is a working honey farm and a great day out for all the family, with gardens, soft play and of course bees. Special events are running through half term.
Hallowe'en fun - a full day out
Witches, wolves and other animals
Find out about the Witch of Wildwood at Wildwood Devon, and enjoy exploring the park to see otters, wolves, lynx, and red squirrels. Visit the maze and have fun in the indoor and outdoor play areas.
The Donkey Sanctuary near Sidmouth is free to visit and well-behaved dogs are welcome. Join in the fun with their Haunted Hay Bales Hallowe’en Hunt.
Why not book a visit to Dartmoor Zoo after dark – if you dare!
