If you haven’t already booked accommodation on one of the many caravan holiday parks in Cornwall, and intend to spend Halloween in this most popular of UK destinations, now would be a good time to visit Rent My Caravan and do it. Self-catering accommodation in Cornwall is almost fully booked at this time of the year because there is so much fun and entertainment on offer.
Here are our top picks of the best Halloween parties for family fun:
Flambards, Helston – 28 October, 2015
Trick or Treat Halloween Firework Display
Held annually, this is an all-day event with a reputation for being one of the best parties in the country. Visitors can enjoy the scariest rides and follow the trail of pumpkins through the spookiest of Victorian Villages during the day. When night falls there is a spectacular firework display commencing at 8pm accompanied by live music and dance entertainment.
Pendennis Castle, Falmouth – 29 to 31 October 2015
Chilling, ghostly Halloween Tour
You’ll need to be especially courageous to meet the challenges of a pirate themed Halloween tour around Pendennis Castle after dark. Ghouls and ghosts of pirates and buccaneers will appear along the way as you try to find the hidden treasure from their ill-gotten gains.
Both children and adults will be enthralled by spine tingling tales about the gruesome history of this castle, which is an English Heritage site occupied by its own resident ghosts from centuries past.
Children’s tours last for around half an hour and begin at 6pm with adult tours lasting slightly longer (45 minutes) and commencing at 7pm. Refreshments are included when the tour is completed.
On the scale of spooky Halloween tours in Cornwall we would rate this as by far the scariest.
Trerice House, Newquay – 30 and 31 October 2015
Halloween Night and Tudor Banquet
Owned by the National Trust, Trerice House has two resident ghosts believed to be those of a stable boy and servant girl. The boy was allegedly trampled to death by horses and the girl committed suicide whilst pregnant with Lord Arundell’s child, after he rejected her. She may or may not be the famous Grey Lady that has been seen on so many occasions by various people.
There are Tudor Feasts over two nights, including sumptuous food and live entertainment, so you can attend both or just one. It is necessary to book in advance you can buy them over the telephone by calling 01637 875404
There is something going on in Cornwall all year round – surfing, coast steering and boating for those who love the water; hiking and walking for nature lovers, food and drink for gastronomes; beachcombing for curiosity and treasure hunters and much, much more. One of the most economical ways to enjoy all these activities is to rent a caravan in Cornwall, near to a busy resort.
Holiday periods are busy with thousands of tourists visiting every year so if you intend to participate in what this most English of counties has to offer, book your self-catering accommodation in Cornwall early to avoid disappointment.
