Since having our second child we have been re-discovering buggy friendly walks in Berkshire. They have been great to explore. It’s worth noting we walk with an off-road buggy and have only tested the below walks with this type of buggy. If you click the links below, they will each take you to a blog post, which has been written about each walk, providing pictures and more information and Berkshire Mummies experience of each walk.
Where can I find a good Buggy Friendly Walks in Berkshire?
Boulter’s Lock and Ray Mill Island, Maidenhead – Boulter’s Lock and Ray Mill Island are both accessible to buggy’s. There is lots to see from the boats going in and out of the lock. You can feed the swans, geese and ducks on Ray Mill Island. There are wooden sculptures around Ray Mill Island and a little bird aviary and some guinea pigs to see and more.
Buckler’s Forest, Crowthorne – this is a great walk amongst the forest paths, with loads of ponds with viewing platforms to enjoy. There are several different walking routes to take and the paths are maintained.
Dinton Pasture Country Park, Wokingham – A lake side walk with maintained paths. Dinton Pastures Country Park has a fantastic play area too.
Englemere Pond, Ascot – A woodland and lake walk. We got our off road buggy around the lake / pond. Please be aware, that although the paths are flat there are tree roots and boardwalks to content with during the walk.
Frost Folly Country Park, Warfield – These are grass paths cut through beautiful wildflower meadows. We have got the buggy round this walk but suggest only going in the Spring and Summer months. It gets very muddy in the winter months.
Lily Hill Park, Bracknell – This walk is a mixture of well maintained paths (avoid the routes with steps) and boardwalks. There are sculptures to admire, stunning rhododendrons in the Spring and woodland paths to enjoy.
Peacock Meadows, Bracknell – The paths are well maintained and there are different routes to take. The meadows have lots of wild flowers and grasses. Whilst you are at the meadows you can enjoy the wonderful wildlife in the warmer months.
Other walks which are buggy friendly include The Heath in Ascot and The Long Walk, Windsor Great Park.
