Broadditch Christmas Market



In the aim to feel festive and christmassy (is that even a word?) I decided on a lazy Sunday to go to a local christmas market. No you are not going mad, you might recognise the name Broadditch as that is the same place I went for the hauntfest this year, but they have quickly packed up some of the halloween things for the christmas market. They hold so many events throughout the year if you live in Kent or anywhere near then its defiantly worth checking them out Broadditch.co.uk

So for one weekend only they had their christmas market and they will close for for a few weeks and open again when they will only have their little shop selling decorations and christmas tress the market side is only there for a weekend and if I am right this is their second christmas market ever now.

I thought the layout was good having a food and drinks section selling festive themed beverages and food as well as one barn being full of people with stalls and the other barn having a few more stalls and their own massive shop full of every christmas decoration you could ever imagine.

Overall I don't think this particular Christmas market was amazing but it made me feel so christmassy and the live music was a lovely attraction enjoyed by many people there. I still think the idea of going to a christmas market with a few friends or family member is such a lovely idea and you can pick up the nicest stuff!

Halloween Hauntfest 2017

WARNING...contains gruesome images...Happy Halloween

I feel like this blog post is becoming an annual thing, but I love going to Broadditch hauntfest and would recommend it as every year it changes slightly and they bring something new to the plate which keeps is fun and interesting. As I've said before they offer something for everyone. For young children they offer a bright colorful experience which focus's more on pumpkins and visually fun aspects of halloween. For the less brave they have the scare attractions including a spooky castle and corn maze which you can visit during the day so it is still light and there aren't any actors so its a little bit spooky but yet not too scary; or for the daring and brave there are the night event where there are live actors in the attractions and walking around the farm scaring you.

This year I went with some friends and enjoyed doing all the events at night. I love the thrill of being scared and expecting to be made jump. I will for sure be returning next year which is no surprise as I have been coming to this hauntfest every year since I was five years old but obviously I started with the children's activities and got braver as I've got older. I hope they keep this event going for years to come.

Pumpkin Picking 2017


This post is expected every year as one of my favorite things you get to do in autumn is go Pumpkin picking so this year like last year and the year before I went to Beluncle farm in Hoo, Rochester. I went with a massive group of family friends this year and had such a lovely time and enjoyed a lovely pub lunch and drink afterwards. Can we also appreciate the mickey mouse back pack....thank you xx

Pumpkin picking from a field is so much better than rummaging through in Asda or another supermarket and you are supporting your local farmers. I feel like these Pumpkins are priced better as well as you get to the pay stand and there are just people pricing up your wheel barrows and they often will say oh just £1.00 for a large pumpkin which you often pay £3.00-£4.00 for in a regular supermarket. And on top of that its just a lovely day out, so I would defiantly suggest having a day out in October pumpkin picking and you can make a real day of it going out for dinner after like we did or going somewhere local for drinks.
