Where to go pumpkin picking in Devon in 2022

The season of mists and mellow fruitfulness is upon us, which means its nearly time to go pumpkin picking in Devon!

Last year this was one of our autumn highlights. The kids dressed up in their Halloween finery and we headed to our local pumpkin patch where there was an astonishing collection of gourds in all shapes, sizes and colours – perfect for decorating our doorstep.
