Pumpkin Patches To Visit In North West England {2019}

One thing that’s always at the top of our Autumn Bucket List is to visit some pumpkin patches. The kids love carving pumpkins with Daddy every year even more so if they chose the pumpkins themselves. Not only is it a great way to support local farmers visiting pumpkin patches also provide fantastic photo opportunities too.

As I have been doing some research about pumpkin patches in my local area, the North-West of England I thought I would share my findings with you. I will keep this post regularly updated with anything else I find in the run-up to Halloween season.


Top Tips For Visiting A Pumpkin Patch

  • Always wear wellies, the pumpkin fields are often muddy this time of year.
  • Check the farms’ websites and social media before setting off, pumpkins and events are all subject to availability.
  • Take your own bags.
  • The terrain is usually uneven and rough so I recommend a baby carrier rather than a pram or buggy.
  • Plan your visit to avoid busy periods (usually early afternoon).
  • Take enough cash to cover any extra activities you want to take part in.
  • Don’t forget the camera for snapping those memories.

Pumpkins will be available to buy from October 5th and pumpkin season will be fully running (including carving) from October 12th-31st. During pumpkin season the farm offers:

  • Ready picked pumpkins of all shapes and sizes in a massive indoor pumpkin tunnel
  • An area to carve your own pumpkins, kit provided and you can leave the mess with them (for a fee)
  • An outdoor pumpkin parade with rows of assorted pumpkins
  • Seasonal food and drink including a hog roast and chocolate apples
  • Farm shop, cafe, and free outdoor play area for the kids
