With Halloween approaching we’ve conjured up some fearsomely fabulous things to keep both children and parents happy this autumn half-term.
From pumpkin and lantern carving to creepy crawly crafts, from magical mocktails to painted talons. There’s even a Halloween party for the older children, so don’t forget to bring a scary costume (we have some spare ones if you forget).
In the Woolley Bears Den we've lots of activities for the little ones planned (see below). For older children and parents there’s Halloween lantern carving with Eliza, Magical Mocktails with the Restaurant team, Terrific Towel Art with the Housekeeping team, Scary nails with the Spa, Glitter tattoos, chocolate bats and fireside marshmallow toasting with the Den team, and a relaxed walk with Rex and our Head Housekeeper, Dawn, in our beautiful 14 acres of autumnal gardens.

Note to parents: hate Halloween? Never fear. Relaxing by the fire with a G+T is almost obligatory here, whilst we do the baby listening and, having exhausted them in the day, the little Halloweenies usually sleep soundly.
