Bunkers Hill Pumpkin Trail
Visit the beautiful nursery for their annual Pumpkin Hunt
Over the weekend we went somewhere new. We crossed the Warwickshire border into Oxfordshire and went to Bunkers Hill Garden Shop near Kidlington.
They have ready picked pumpkins for you to choose from and the cutest little pumpkin trail.
The pumpkin trail is £2 each and all money goes to charity.
Around the plant nursery there are 10 pumpkins hidden. Each pumpkin has a picture and a letter attached. You have to find all the letters to crack the code and unscramble the word to win a prize.
If you find Boris the Bat then you get an extra little prize too.
Some of the pumpkins are really well hidden and we had to wander around a few times to find them. They’re hidden high and low in amongst all the beautiful plants.
At the end the prize is a little sweet and a bag of bulbs. You have to plant the bulbs now and they will flower in Spring. I love that they gave bulbs.
The trail is lovely for all ages and the garden centre was really lovely with some amazing plants.
Dogs on a lead are allowed in to the garden centre.
The best bit was that they offer free hot drinks in their outdoor tearoom. Homemade cakes are available too. Cakes are £2.50 a slice and there’s an honesty box to pop your money into. I think you can pay at the till too if you don’t have cash.
No pre booking is required for the pumpkin hunt at the moment but they will be introducing one for the half term holiday. Visit their WEBSITE to book your time slot.
The main paths around the nursery are wheelchair and pushchair friendly. They also have a portaloo on site.
They also have a lovely wildflower meadow walk. There aren’t many wildflowers left now but the walk was really nice.
The pumpkin hunt is on each day from 9:30am until 6pm. Through Half Term the hours are extended until 7pm so you can search by torchlight (great for older ones).
It took us just over 45 minutes from Stratford upon Avon.
