I’ve finally found a pumpkin patch in Kent and I wanted to write a short post to share it with you all, since there are lots of people looking for them. It took us about an hour and twenty minutes to drive to the Beluncle PYO farm, near Rochester, Kent. It was so worth the trip, even though weather was cold and very overcast and I did think that we may get wet at any point. Which explains why my photos are a little grey don’t let that put you off.

We arrived around 10.30am and it was already busy, with lines of cars parked up in a field next door. There were plenty of parking attendants but we did wonder as we pulled up if there would be any pumpkins left! We need not have worried its huge. As we headed over to the entrance there were wheelbarrows everywhere, Monkey instantly excited grabbing the first one he could get to. As you go through the entrance there are people on hand to direct you to various points depending on what you want to pick. The choice is immense!

If you can not be bothered then there are crates of some of the varieties and normal craving pumpkins near the entrance. There are also some whoppers!! Monkey posed for a picture on the hay bails before we went exploring. The nearest part of the field had already been picked but a little walk lead to rows and rows of pumpkins. We managed to find several which were almost perfectly round and at £1 each they were a bargain! Around the outside of the field they had ornamental corn growing at 50p each. Monkey was fascinated by the different colours. There were still quite a few left despite the fact that previous visitors had picked and dropped. I can imagine that there is a lot of waste when there doesn’t need to be.

The whole lot cost us £10! So not only is there loads of choice but the price is brilliant. Its well set up with toilets and a hot food trailer selling burgers, chips and a range of drinks both hot and cold. There is also a little halloween shop selling fancy dress and decorations.

  1. Yay you found one 🙂 It really is a fab day out, something so simple and they love it. That last photo of your boys is heart melting. Thank you for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove x

  2. This looks fab, PYO pumpkin patches are like a craze at the moment arent they. The photos are great 🙂 #sharingthebloglove

  3. I looked at Beluncle Farm last year but we ended up going to Secretts in Guildford. We live in Surrey but close to the Kent border so either would be a good option. I was hoping to try Beluncle, just got to persuade the hubby on Saturday, as I don’t drive! Sarah #SharingTheBlogLove

  4. We actually like the grey! They make the pumpkins stand out more. Looks like you guys had a great day xx #sharingthebloglove

    OH wow I love your pictures! I’ve spotted so many amazing pumpkin pics on Instagram that have got me wanting to track down a farm of my own. And now I’ve seen your post, I’m feeling very ashamed. See, I thought it would be too hard to get out on my own with my 2 year old and 6 month old but you’ve managed it with a little one! I’m pretty impressed with your pumpkin stash too – all of that for £10 – bargain! #SharingtheBlogLove

  7. Love that last picture. I’m amazed how cheap that was. Ours cost £7.50 for one medium size and 2 small pumpkins! #sharingthebloglove

  8. I love your pumpkin and gourd collection – I love the unusual gourds with their pretty colours and knobbliness (is that a word?!) And that shot of your cute little pumpkin in amongst the pumpkins is adorable! This sounds like a great place – it’s amazing how many PYO pumpkin places there are around the country really! It definitely seems to have suddenly taken off this year and I hope it continues – it’s such a fun tradition! Thanks for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove
