We love Halloween. Oh, we know, it’s all very commercial these days, but so what? It’s still great fun, and fun has been very thin on the ground this year so any opportunity, that’s what we say. And what better than to getaway to a gorgeous house in the country with the fam for your very own version of frightful frolics and ominous ongoings? Come and hang around for a spell, bring pumpkins and costumes, make Halloween themed food together – make it magical for the young ‘uns, they love it.
One part of the Halloween celebrations that gets them shrieking with excitement is the games. We love that, the grown-ups join in and before you know it there’s Halloween hilarity all round, everyone laughing, big happy smiles. We’ve put together a few ideas for games, all easy peasy to do, and not likely to make much mess either so no-one will be up late cleaning up. The dressing up bit is always fun too, especially getting the kids ready, painting their little faces and taking photos of them. There’s plenty of choice when it comes to Halloween costumes for children, and a surprising selection for grown ups too, but there’s always the easy option to throw an old sheet over you and make like a ghost, or to cut it into strips and wrap yourself up like a mummy!
Likewise, there are stacks of Halloween recipes to be found online; scary face pizzas, toffee apples, haunted castle cakes, scary bat biscuits, plates of slithery worms. Again, kids love to join in the baking so get organised and have a grocery delivery from Dart Fresh with everything you need for a fearful feast. They’ll deliver apples for apple bobbing and big fat pumpkins for carving into lanterns; use the flesh to make hearty soups and serve it with warm crusty bread for dunking.
So, where do you fancy? What do you fancy? How about The Old Rectory? It doesn’t get much better than that – Halloween in an old rectory! It’s a beauty of a house too, close to the sea in Somerset and just a few minutes stroll from the wilds of the Quantock Hills. AND there’s a hot tub, and a games room, and a big garden with a play area. Boxes all ticked, prices starting from £35.71 per night per person.
On the country house theme there’s Berry House in Devon; with this one you get your own indoor pool and games room, and if you’re lucky, you might see the red deer that come down from the hills to feed. How much? Considerably less than a decent hotel each for sure, with prices staring from £42.84 each per night.
You could have an Exmoor manor house all to yourselves for Halloween – get that! Bossington Hall is packed with country charm and has achingly beautiful views that stretch for miles over the Porlock Vale and to Dunkery Beacon. Walks on the doorstep, a squash court, tennis court, games rooms and 6 acre grounds – all yours from £107.14 per night per person.
Riverside on the Somerset Levels is a dream for family breaks, all homely and cosy, and right on the banks of the River Tone; there’s a hot tub, a games room, and a terrific play area with a pirate boat. An absolute steal with prices as low as £28.57 per person per night.
Have a ghoulish gathering at The Plough near Bath for just £35.71 per night each for a week – and you get your own covered hot tub, a games room and a bar! These last minute offers usually go quite quickly so snap up these astounding offers now and look forward to a happy Halloween break in the UK.
