Walking at Lily Hill Park in Bracknell

Lily Hill Park in Bracknell is one of our favourite places to go for a family walk and adventure. The park is made up of 23 hectares of public open space which includes woodland areas, open green space, ponds, a boardwalk and sculptures plus plenty of wildlife and flowers. It’s also home to England’s longest picnic bench - carved from a single piece of wood. We park in the North Car Park which is free of charge and can be found off Lily Hill Road, Bracknell, RG12 2RX. Once parked we take either the path next to the noticeboard or the path down the steps and under The Green Man sculpture. The Green Man is a wonderful wooden carving and great for a photo opportunity. Both paths join together and then we take the path to the left sometime heading off the path up into the woods (depend

AD – Gifted Tickets // Review – Maidenhead Mini-Golf

We were delighted to be invited to Maidenhead Mini-Golf to have a go on their brand new 18 hole, dinosaur themed, mini-golf course and were thrilled it was dry and sunny after a very wet week! It was a perfect way to enjoy a Friday Half Term afternoon. We received a very warm welcome, were given size appropriate golf clubs and picked a different coloured ball each, had a quick safety briefing and headed out onto the course. The mini-golf course was busy which was great to see, but the rounds flowed nicely with us only having to wait for the family on the hole in front of us to finish their go. The mini-golf was well thought out with different challenges and obstacles at each hole, on one you had to cross water and there were a couple that involved tunnels and bridges to get the ...

Walking and exploring the grounds at South Hill Park

We enjoy going for a walk around the South Hill Park nature trail in the woodland area which are made of of wooden and metal sculptures. The sculptures are animal themed eg bee, fox and dragonfly to mention a few. We have got a buggy round the woodland paths before but there are some steepish climbs with drops to the side and next time will opt to take the baby carrier. We also took the dog with us on our adventure. South Hill Park Nature Trail There are two large lakes at South Hill Park - the South Lake and the North Lake - this map will help you get your bearings and has a selection of walks marked on it. The lakes are a great place to feed the ducks and geese. There is plenty of open space for children to run and their are beautiful rose garden next to the main South Hill Park buil...

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. One of our favourite parts of Henley on Thames to visit is Mill Meadows. 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 path is mainly hard standing and buggy friendly and takes about 15 / 20 minutes each way). However, if we are looking for a longer walk, we will cross over the bridge onto the other side of the road and river and walk as far as 'little feet' will go and turn back on ...

A visit to the Museum of Berkshire Aviation, Woodley

I have decided that in 2020 we are going to aim to visit some of Berkshire’s Museums, there are loads of them but haven’t got round to visiting them yet. We are an outdoor family so tend to head out for a walk or an outdoor adventure but since writing this blog I have realised there are loads of fantastic museums in Berkshire that we need to visit. Our eldest and my husband both love aeroplanes and helicopters so when we saw the Museum of Berkshire Aviation recommended on a local Facebook group we decided to go and have a look. The museum isn’t huge and is based at the historic site of Woodley Airfield, near Reading - once the centre of a thriving aircraft industry. The museum is crammed full of aircraft of all different shapes and sizes and plenty of aircraft artefacts and me

AD – Gifted Tickets // Review – Concertini & The Brass Funkeys

Berkshire Mummies were invited by Conertini, to attend one of their concerts and we picked to go to their New Year show with The Brass Funkeys and I have to say it was a really positive and upbeat way to start a Sunday morning at the beginning of January, so thanks for having us Conertini. I took my eldest with me and we will definitely be booking tickets to another one of your concerts in the not too distant future. The Brass Funkeys were an 8 piece brass band, they were fantastic with the audience, educating us about their different instruments, the sounds they made and the different families of instruments they came from. The Brass Funkeys ‘took us to’ New Orleans where we experienced a Mardi Gras. During the concert their was singing, clicking, toe tapping and dancing and it was su

AD – Gifted Tickets // Review – Rush UK, High Wycombe

Thank you to Rush UK, High Wycombe for inviting us down to come and have a go on the trampolines and also the soft play, we had a lovely morning playing. What we got up to during our visit First of all we went to the toddler session (for children 4 and under) on the trampolines which was between 9am - 10.30am, the session was great as there was loads to do and it wasn’t too busy and all the children were supervised by an adult. Before the session started we signed a waiver (you can read and sign this on their website before attending), were given 'trampolining' socks and a safety briefing. We had full access to the park (although the High Performance Area, the Rush Wipeout and Adrenaline Rush Assault Course weren’t in ‘play’ due to the height restrictions). But we did plenty of bo
