As it’s half term this week we have been filling our days with Autumnal activities including pumpkin picking, long walks and spooky halloween trails. On one of the days we made our way up to Lifton to pick our own pumpkins and as we were up that way we decided to visit Lydford Gorge.

Lydford Gorge

Lydford Gorge is a National Trust place in Devon and home to the deepest gorge in the South West with an amazing 30m waterfall called the White Lady. It’s also home to the well know Devil’s Cauldron.

Children’s Halloween Trail

As part of their Autumn half term activities Lydford Gorge have a children’s halloween trail on. The trail cost ¬£3 each with a prize at the end.

The trail was certainly spooky!

The trail goes through the ‘witches wood’ and the aim is to find the boxes that contain the answers to your questions on your trail sheet. There are 10 boxes in total hidden in the woods. Questions included things like ‘In the olden days what did people think happened on Halloween? and ‘What is the meaning of the word ‘hallow’ in relation to Halloween?’.

The trail took us around half an hour to complete. When you are done you need to return to the visitor reception to collect your prize.

My two really enjoyed the Halloween trail and I’m glad we paid the extra money to do it. After the trail we decided to complete the full walk around the gorge to see the White Lady Waterfall and the Devil’s Cauldron. We were exhausted by the time we got home but it was a very enjoyable day.

  1. Another brilliant post, I never realised there was so much to do during Halloween in Devon. I struggle to find different activities that are right on our doorstep. Another location to add to my list.

I'd love to know what you think...
