Spooky things in Pembrokeshire this half term

Pembrokeshire Tourism - Saturday, October 21, 2017
Half term will soon be here, and as the nights draw in and temperatures cool, finding things to do to keep the family occupied can sometimes be a bit of a challenge. But fear not, we’ve found some super spooky spots for you to visit … if you dare!

Clerkenhill Adventure Farm
If you go down to the woods today, you may well find a spooky surprise! Over the weekend of 28th and 29th October, Clerkenhill Adventure Farm is the place to hunt for hidden spooks, hear the witches’ spooky stories and more! Of course, you could always enjoy a round of frizbee golf, explore the nature trails or play areas and say hello to the animals if you’d prefer not to be spooked.

Scolton Manor
Get the kids doing some creepy cookery at Scolton Manor! Whilst you enjoy a walk around the grounds, taking in the walled gardens, nature trails and chainsaw sculptures, youngsters aged 6 – 11 can spend the morning in the manor house kitchen making all sorts of delicious treats including scary skeletons and witches broomsticks. Booking is required and the session costs £20 per child (includes lunch).

Get involved in spooky crafts and enjoy a magic show too as part of your day out. Of course, there’s plenty more to see around the park from pigs to penguins and guinea pigs to giraffes.
