Just 20-25 minutes from Uppingham, on what looks just like a normal farm, you'll find a real hidden gem and it's called Hill Farm in Chesterton near Peterborough. Which has become quite the annual occasion for us to visit every October, as we go pumpkin picking!
There are different areas of the field where you can pick the pre-picked pumpkins or those still growing.
This year, I took my godson as he's now old enough to pick his own, ride in the wheelbarrow, play on the park and enjoy this country-bumpkin style Halloween activity with me.
Hill Farm is a great place to visit whatever your age and even though I'm twenty-something, I look forward to it each year. It's a working farm which is open throughout certain months of the year as a 'pick your own' farm with everything from strawberries to squashes but each October you can visit to pick the perfect pumpkin!
