The Little Lilypad is a lifestyle blog mostly written by a mum to two beautiful, cheeky and entertaining daughters. It is sometimes written by the Man on the Pad or by one of our baby bloggers. Occasionally we accept guest posts too. There is frequently talk of shoes and clothing (we love fashion and savvy shopping), chocolate (who doesn't love chocolate) education and swimming (we love this too). It is hopefully helpful, sometimes funny and always honest.

When & where can I go pumpkin picking in the Midlands?

Posted on


We are now officially in pumpkin season! The weather has changed, Autumn is definitely upon us and all we can think about is that Halloween is approaching!

Last year we wrote a post about 5 Things To Do With A Pumpkin Other Than Carve It but nothing says Halloween more than a carved pumpkin outside your house. But where are the best places in the Midlands to get your pumpkins this year? We have been taking a look!

Pumpkin Week at Hatton Adventure World - Warwick

Tickets can be purchased online up until 10am on the day of visit. (Making a saving on the door prices)

In addition to pumpkin picking, there are lots of things going on during pumpkin week including :

New Haunted House

Pumpkin Hunt

Pumpkin Carving Competition judged at 4.15pm

Along with all the usual Hatton activities

ADULT - £16.95

Hill Top Farm - Leamington Spa

Between Saturday 19th October to Thursday 31th October (stock permitting) their pumpkin field will be open for you to pick your own pumpkin.

The field will be open between 10am-4pm each day and they are taking people down to the pumpkin patch via tractor rides every 30 minutes.  You can then select your pumpkin and take it home with you to carve!


Planters Garden Centre - Tamworth

The Pumpkin Paddock returns for 2019! This Halloween event includes lots of family fun such as pumpkin picking, carving, games and more! It is not really pumpkin picking like at pick your own locations but it is a great location and very child friendly.

Every £5 child ticket includes picking a pumpkin, which you can pick from the paddock area, carving it and being able to take it home. Anybody not wishing to take home a pumpkin can purchase an adult ticket for £1.50.


Essington Farm - Wolverhampton

PYO is open again on the 12th October 2019. 🎃 Go and pick your own perfect pumpkin from all different shapes and sizes. This is farm so always best to wear appropriate clothing and footwear, especially if it has been raining.

Top Tip from Essington Farm :Remember, if you keep the stalk on your pumpkin it will easily last until November!!

We will be updating this listing throughout October, so do let us know if you find a great pumpkin patch! 

And finally ......

Once you have carved your pumpkin up and created a Halloween masterpiece, the best thing to do then is make some delicious pumpkin soup!
