The Lakeside Light Trail has transformed Partridge Lakes in Culcheth, near Warrington into an enchanting Halloween attraction.
We know Partridge Lakes well as it is just around the corner from the farm and we regularly go for breakfast there.
As it is a working fishery, we have never seen all the ponds so the chance to walk around them was very exciting but the addition of the lights made it spectacular.
It was spooky but not too scary. My youngest is six and no nightmares were had so it is suitable for all ages.
Well behaved dogs are allowed and I spotted some in fancy dress but I left the chihuahuas at home because, quite frankly, they are not well behaved.
Stroll along a winding path that hugs the water’s edge, leading you on a magical journey through woodland transformed by eerie and captivating lights.
Shadows of witches on broomsticks, smoke bubbles floating out of cauldrons, and spiders crawling out of trees all illuminated by magical lights to create an immersive experience that feels like stepping into a living Halloween storybook.
There is a cosy fire pit corner, a perfect place for toasting marshmallows and enjoying the wholesome atmosphere. The fire pit was a huge hit with the boys and I tried to rein in my anxiety around the flames.
The marshmallows were quite expensive at £4 each and the boys got a hot dog each and I got a crepe which came to £15. They did say they were the best hot dogs they’ve ever had though.
You can tell the organisers have put a lot of effort into the event. It runs from October 2nd to 31st 2023 from 6.30pm. It is well sign posted.
We really enjoyed the evening. It is on the expensive side but my children don’t trick or treat so it is nice doing something at this time of year.
