We love a bit of ghoulish fun around this time of year.
And if we can team it with a bit of exercise and a hot chocolate, then everyone’s a winner.
This Halloween we’ll be putting Victorian Wicked Garden at Fota House and Gardens at the top of the list for a ramble.
The 19th Century stately home hosts and annual Creepy Crawl in the grounds, inviting Halloween fans of all ages to take a family-friendly, self-guided ramble around Fota Arboretum and the Victorian Wicked Garden.
If you survive the trail, head back to the house to collect a treat in front of the open fire, then trick someone into hitting the the Bakestone caravan for you for a creamy hot chocolate.
