Walking at Bramshot Farm Country Park, Fleet

Walking at Bramshot Farm Country Park, Fleet

We went walking at Bramshot Farm Country Park, Fleet, which, I know isn't in Berkshire but was worth the drive. The walk is about 13.5 miles away from Bracknell (approx 19 minutes drive on a good traffic day according to google!). We went on an overcast Friday afternoon. There were about 15 cars in the car park and it was nice and quiet with plenty of room for everyone. I suspect on sunnier days and weekends it will be busier. What impressed me the most about Bramshot Country Park is how well managed and maintained the 91 acres site was.…

Great places to visit in South Wales

Great places to visit in South Wales

Did you know this week is Wales Week Berkshire? So I thought I would mark the occasion. Despite not being Welsh, I lived in South Wales for a good proportion of my later teens / early adulthood years and have some very fond memories of the country. Today we visit South Wales on holiday and to also visit family, so in support of Wales Week Berkshire, I thought I would share some of my favourite places to visit. Did you know that Cardiff, the Welsh capital is only 2 hours 10 minutes away by car from Reading according to Google…

A circular walk at Ankerwycke, Surrey

A circular walk at Ankerwycke, Surrey

We really benefit as a family from exploring and discovering walks with our National Trust Membership card and look forward to discovering more National Trust properties and sites. One place we have found through our membership is walking at Ankerwycke, this site is special as it’s home to the National Trusts eldest tree - just over the Berkshire border in Surrey and across the River Thames from National Trust site Runnymede. Ankerwycke makes a good circular walkwhich is dog friendly. We have been in both winter and spring, it was pretty muddy in the winter (so we suggest wellies!) The…

Visiting Mill Meadows, Henley-on-Thames

Visiting Mill Meadows, Henley-on-Thames

Despite being in Oxfordshire, Henley-on-Thames is just over the Berkshire boarder (approx 25 minutes / 30 minutes from Reading / Maidenhead) and worth a visit. It's not only a quaint town to visit but you can have some great walks along the river watching the boats and wildlife. We enjoy visiting Mill Meadows, Henley-on-Thames, its one of our favourite parts of the town. In terms of walking we generally head back from Mill Meadows towards the town for a walk, if we want a short walk we turn back at the bridge, by The Angel on the Bridge pub (this…

A family walk in Marlow

A family walk in Marlow

We recently went for a family walk along the river at Marlow, Buckinghamshire. We parked in Higginson Park and walked along the tow path along the River Thames. The path was flat and well maintained with lots of families pushing buggies and walking dogs, there were a couple of well maintained bridges to walk over however. The walk was really scenic with views of Marlow Bridge and All Saints Church Bisham, across the water to look at. We fed the swans and ducks on the river during our walk and also watched the boats on the river. We also enjoyed…

Alice Holt Forest, Gruffalo Sculptures

Alice Holt Forest, Gruffalo Sculptures

On Sunday 6th January 2019 we had a family trip to Alice Holt Forest in Farnham, Surrey. The Forest is approx 23 miles from Bracknell, 28 miles from Reading and 29 miles from Windsor. We had never been to Alice Holt Forest but I knew there were Gruffalo sculptures there and I was keen for my little one to see them as we all enjoy reading The Gruffalo and the other children's books by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. The Forest which is Forestry Commission run is vast, spanning 850 hectares. Once parked we headed to the information desk to…

AD – Review // The Ivy Marlow Garden

AD – Review // The Ivy Marlow Garden

On 3rd January 2019 we were invited as a family to dine at The Ivy Marlow Garden in exchange for reviewing our experience. It was great to be able to extend our Christmas and New Year celebrations out a little bit further before getting back into our normal routine again after the festive period.  Upon arrival we were greeted at the front desk, where our coats were taken to the cloakroom, we were then escorted to our table which was beautifully laid out with white table cloths and we were presented with a selection of menus.  We were offered drinks…

A day at West Wittering Beach

A day at West Wittering Beach

On Sunday 24th June we headed for a day on the beach at West Wittering in Chichester. It’s one of our favourite beaches to visit, especially as it’s a sandy beach with good car parking facilities (we paid £8.50 to park for the day, which we paid by card on arrival) and is generally a relatively straight forward journey from Berkshire, traffic dependant. We arrived at about 10.30am and the car park was very busy but there was still room to park. The beach was also busy but due to its size it still felt to me as though there…
