The Big Occombe Scarecrow Trail

Something enchanting is happening once again this October half-term at Occombe Farm Park & Play. The scarecrows are making a triumphant return, leaving their patches behind to embark on a new thrilling adventure. These charming characters, gathered from Cockington, Berry Head, and the fields around Occombe, come bearing a brand-new story, a fresh mystery to solve, and a naughty villain to defeat.

From Saturday 21st to Tuesday 31st October 2023, the Big Occombe Scarecrow Trail promises a spellbinding experience for families, friends, and adventurers of all ages. Spot the scarecrows, listen to their stories, and unlock the secrets that will guide them back to their fields. Are you ready for the challenge?

A highlight of the Scarecrow Trail is a delightful pumpkin patch, where visitors can handpick their own pumpkins. Our friendly team will be on hand to offer tips, ideas, and tricks to help you craft the most bewitching pumpkin Jack-o’-lanterns. Be sure to share your finished creations on social media so we can admire your artistic endeavours.

Suitable for all ages. Fun for the whole family! There’s no need to book – just turn up!
