A house that is a bit of a squash when you step inside is returning to Norfolk this Halloween.

The Pumpkin House launched at Brookhill Farm in Thursford in 2018 and it will be back for the fourth year from Friday, October 22 until Sunday, October 31.

The farm is run by couple Henry and Victoria Cushing and each year they create the Halloween attraction with their children.

It is set to be bigger and better than ever, with 1,000 pumpkins to choose from on the wooden shelves, ranging from a traditional jack-o'-lantern to the goosebumps with warty skin, and prices start at £4.50.

Before visitors arrive at the Pumpkin House, there is a trail decorated with pumpkins and scarecrows and the hay bale maze is returning. 

New for 2021 is a hay play area for little ones and a covered area where guests can enjoy teas, coffees, homemade cakes and pumpkin soup under cover.
