Frightfully good offer from farm

CHILDREN are being promised some spooktacular fun at an attraction near Stannington this half-term.

And the Whitehouse Farm Centre is so convinced its new Dr Death Challenge in the Walkway of Terror will leave you trembling that it has promised to give you a ticket to come back if it fails.

Upon entering, the Dark Doctor will take your heart rate before pushing your terror to its limits.

Once you reach the other end, he will take your heart rate again and if it has not increased, you can return to the farm for free.

Other activities available during half-term to mark Hallowe’en, which takes place on October 31, include creepy critter shows, a bat chamber, lantern making, themed games and a witches and wizards school.

Staff are also offering a free family ticket to whoever can send them the most eye-catching picture of Uncle SkeerKat, who can be found on the website –

Karen Lovatt, of Whitehouse Farm Centre, said: “The staff have really got into the spirit of things this Hallowe’en and have been plotting all sorts of activities for children of all ages.

“And if your little ones are not feeling brave then they can still enter our fancy-dress parade and do all of the normal things at the farm without the fear of things that go bump in the night.”

From this Saturday to Sunday, November 3, it will be open between 10am and 5pm.
