The Pumpkin House in North Norfolk is the place to buy your pumpkin and it opens this month
Now in its third year, The Pumpkin House at Thursford, near Fakenham, is home to more than 1000 pumpkins, all lovingly put there by Henry and Victoria Cushion on their family farm.
Opening on October 21, visitors walk through a wooded trail, decorated with pumpkins and scarecrows, to reach the wooden Pumpkin House where they can choose a perfect Jack o’ Lantern from the Pumpkin House shelves.
Pumpkins range in size and shape from Mini to Emperor, with the farm growing traditional pumpkin varieties plus specialty pumpkins such as Goosebumps and Queensland blue, both of which look spectacular as table displays.
Floral arrangements and wreaths are on sale as well as wooden broomsticks, plus, back again this year, is the hay bale maze and the Hungry Hut which sells homemade pumpkin cake, hot chocolate, tea and biscuits to takeaway.
New for this year is a Miniature Pumpkin House which is opening for any visiting little witches or wizards!
- The Pumpkin House opens from October 2 to 31, from 10-4pm. It is a pop-up shop and pumpkin patch on the A148 between Holt and Fakenham. Entrance and parking are free. Pumpkins are priced according to size.
