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

Walking at Wildmoor Heath Nature Reserve, Crowthorne

Whilst out running an errand in the February Half Term we planned to stop en-route to go walking at Wildmoor Heath Nature Reserve, Crowthorne, which is jointly owned by the Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust and Bracknell Forest. There is a car park (postcode: GU47 8PD) which was free of charge and it also had two picnic benches next to the car park. The nature reserve is a large 99 hectare lowland heath site which has a rich habitat for wildlife, including several rare species of birds - dogs must stick to paths and be kept on a lead during the nesting season. The site is of scientific interest and many species have been found on the site including ragged robins, bullficnches and stag beetles. The Walk On the map below you can see all the di...

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 Walk goes across several fields and through trees and isn’t suitable for a buggy. There is also a pond and views of the River Thames. Part of the Ankerwycke Circular Walk Pond at Ankerwycke

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

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 ...

Winter Walks in Berkshire and a warm drink

Walks are an important part of our families lives, we exercise the dog daily but also just enjoy being outdoors in the fresh air, away from the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives. A chance to get some air in the lungs, watch the wildlife, spend some quality time together and make memories. We enjoy winter walks, especially on crisp cold winter days but we equally enjoy jumping in muddy puddles on rainy ones. Us adults sometimes will also treat ourselves to a hot drink after or during a walk at weekends as a little treat, this idea has prompted this blog post. Here are a few walks in Berkshire and the surrounding area where you can walk and also grab a hot drink. Click the links for more information about each of the walks.

Walking at Dorney Lake

Dorney Lake is a 2,200m purpose built lake owned and financed by Eton College, set in 400 acres of parkland. The land includes an arboretum and nature conservation area. The lake was made for and used in the 2012 Olympics and still has its Olympic rings on display today. The lake is situated in Dorney, Buckinghamshire not far from Eton and Windsor. The lake can be accessed by the public for walking. When we visited there were lots of walkers with their children who were on their bikes and scooters as the paths around the lake are flat, which is also great for buggies. During our walk at Dorney Lake we saw a swan, grebes and cormorants and it was wonderful to see the grebes diving up and down in the water fishing. Once you enter the Dorney Lake entrance, there is a public c...

A walk at Allens Field, South Ascot

On 23rd March 2019 we went for a family walk at Allens Field, South Ascot, having never been to the nature spot before. We went on a Saturday lunchtime and did not see anyone else walking there, so it was very peaceful and we were able to enjoy seeing our first bees of the year and two bright yellow moths / butterflies. You can take a 1.4 mile circular walk which takes approx. 20 – 30 minutes, around the site. Allens Field consists of woodland, wet woodland and grassland space. During our walk we just made up our own route to explore. There is a map in the car park to help guide you around the 9.5 hectare site. We enjoyed discovering the woodland paths but the best bit for us was discovering the beautiful wooden sculptures at the site. There is a little nature play area (see photo
