Say “boo” to a ghoul at the Blue Pool

Their charming pumpkin pick-your-own patch delights adults and little ones alike – que Instagram selfies! With over 3,000 pumpkins to pick until 31st October, pop by and harvest your own or choose a scrumptious, edible squash to rustle up a warming soup or veggie curry at home.
