Visitors to the Derbyshire estate can explore an array of terrible treats and devilish delights, with most activities included in admission to the house, garden and farmyard. From reptile handling and creepy crafts to the chance to be transformed into a witch, zombie or ghoul with the free face painting on offer, ‘Half-term Halloween Hoot’ is fun for all the family.

The popular fright flight leaves the farmyard and enters the deep, dark woods, home to spooky witches. Little monsters can get up close with reptilian creatures from the animal kingdom and make a creepy craft in the barn.

There’s plenty happening this half term in the house and garden too. Follow the creepy collections trail, hunt for hidden pumpkins and scary scarecrows, dare to enter the abandoned tunnel and listen to spine-tingling storytelling in the garden.
