A Sea of Pumpkins for all to Enjoy at Rougham Estate
Just in time for Halloween, Rougham Estate will have a beautiful field full of thousands of pumpkins, in twelve different varieties and many sizes, just waiting to be picked.
Positioned beyond an ancient wood on Rougham Estate, the aptly named Rougham Pumpkin Patch will be a sea of orange, and other colours, showing amazing varieties, allowing visitors to grab a wheelbarrow and choose their perfect pumpkins to carve into spooky faces or scary scenes this Halloween. There will be plenty more to enjoy too with a sand pit and games for the family such as ‘Corn Hole’ and ‘Noughts and Crosses’ using baby pumpkins. There will also be lots of special selfie opportunities such as the Rougham Estate Scarecrow. For refreshments why not enjoy superb coffee, toasties, cakes and a choice of ice creams.
Amie Deane, Events Co-ordinator of Rougham Estate says, “The pumpkins are looking good already, and I can’t wait to see them in their full splendour over the coming weeks. It’s going to be a fun day out as you don’t often have the opportunity to roam around a field full of pumpkins to pick the exact ones they would like to carve. Prices start at £1. Alongside the pumpkins are many other beautiful gourds that you can use to decorate your home. There will certainly be lots to see and I can’t wait to welcome everyone. Don’t forget to bring your wellies!”
The Pumpkin Patch is open for all to explore, and pick your own, each weekend from Saturday 2 October and daily from 25 October.
It is located just off the A14, junction 45 at Rougham, just outside Bury St Edmunds (postcode IP30 9JA), it will be fully signposted. Admission and parking are both free and toilets are also available.
