Things to do in Devon during October Half Term

Join Powderham Castle the private home of the Earl and Countess of Devon for its festival of frights!  Running from the 22nd - 27th October 2017.  Enjoy the normal guided tour of the house or opt to take the spooky one if you are brave enough!  There plenty of extra activies running for the children in the stable from Pumpkin crafts to face painting.

If you are a member of the National Trust why not visit Castle Drogo, Killerton House, Knighthayes or A ronde to name just a few of the wonderful properties to visit whilst staying at Alpine Park Cottages. Please note that both Killerton house and Castle Drogo house are currently having work carried out.

Visit the Donkey Sanctuary at Sidmouth, enjoy lunch in their new cafe as well as visit the lovely donkeys too!

Stuart Line Cruises; escape for a few hours on one of these informative trips along the River Exe.  The boats have covered and heated seating below and you still see the wonderful views.  Hot drinks are also served onboard the vessels.  Take your pet pooch for a ride too!

World of Country Life is ideal for guests with younger children and grandparents too.  Enjoy the indoor ball pool, take the goats for a walk or enjoy the Bird of Prey show.  

Crealy Adventure Park is a great day out for all the family.  The park has ball pools for younger guests, whilst the older children can enjoy the log flume, roller coaster and pirate ship to name just a few.    

Remember to read the information folder in your cottage for further details on Go Karting, I bounce, climbing walls in Exmouth and Exeter. Plus there is a large selection of leaflets in the information point for you to plan to days out.

Have a lovely half term.
