Just in time for Halloween, Rougham Estate has a beautiful field full of thousands of pumpkins, in twelve different varieties and many sizes, just waiting to be picked.
Positioned beyond an ancient wood on Rougham Estate, the aptly named Rougham Pumpkin Patch is a sea of orange, and other colours, showing amazing varieties, allowing visitors to grab a wheelbarrow and choose their perfect pumpkins to carve into spooky faces or scary scenes this Halloween.
There is plenty more to enjoy too, with a sandpit and games for the family such as ‘Corn Hole’ and ‘Noughts and Crosses’ using baby pumpkins. There are also lots of special selfie opportunities such as the Rougham Estate Scarecrow.
