Walking at Dorney Lake

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…

A walk at Allens Field, South Ascot

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…

A family walk in Marlow

A family walk in Marlow

We enjoyed our family walk in Marlow along the River Thames. 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 watching the…

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 to find the Alice Holt Forest Gruffalo Sculptures. 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…

A walk at Pope’s Meadow in Binfield

A walk at Pope’s Meadow in Binfield

Today we went for a family Sunday walk around Pope's Meadow in Binfield. Pope's Meadow is named after poet Alexander Pope (1688-1744) who lived in Pope's Manor adjacent to the site. There are designated paths around Pope's Meadow, which is a 13.7 acre parkland site in Binfield, Bracknell Forest. There is a free car park and play area next to it, with open green spaces, a couple of picnic benches and a pond. Our little one managed the walk we went on and it seemed just about the right length for little legs! The play area was a hit with…

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…

Binfield Easter Egg Hunt

Binfield Easter Egg Hunt

Today we took part in the Binfield Easter Egg Hunt which is taking place until Sunday 8th April 2018 in Binfield Village. There are 33 eggs hidden around the village and you can get a map for the egg hunt from Crema Coffee Shop or Binfield Village Stores. The Easter Egg Hunt maps are £2 each and I believe it’s certainly worth getting a map as the eggs are hidden over quite a large area. The surrounding main roads can be busy. Whilst we were on the egg hunt there were lots of people taking part, of all ages. It…

Exploring Lightwater Country Park

Exploring Lightwater Country Park

Lightwater Country Park is a brilliant open space to explore. Although the Country Park is in Surrey is isn’t far from the Berkshire boarder. The Country Park is just off junction 3 of the M3 between Bagshot and Lightwater. What is there to do when exploring Lightwater Country Park? We have been to exploring Lightwater Country Park on a number of occasions and enjoy walking through the woodlands and around the ponds. You can see and hear the M3 motorway through the woods on part of one of the trails but it is fenced off. Alongside the nature trails there…

A family trip to Dinton Pastures Country Park

A family trip to Dinton Pastures Country Park

We took a family trip to Dinton Pastures Country Park during the first weekend of February half term. Despite it being cold the sky was bright blue and the sun was shining. We arrived at about 10am on the Sunday morning and parked in the overflow car park as the main car park was already full (parking charges apply). First of all we went for a walk around the lake. There were lots of ducks and geese to look at and plenty of muddy puddles! Our walk was lovely and it was fantastic to be outside in the fresh air,…

The Nature Trail at South Hill Park in Bracknell

The Nature Trail at South Hill Park in Bracknell

We recently went for a little walk around the nature trail at South Hill Park, Bracknell which comprises of wooden and metal sculptures placed around the woodland area and pond at South Hill Park. The sculptures really give you a chance to explore a woodland and see the natural eco system at work. The squirrels were certainly busy when we went for our walk. We spotted a beautiful dragonfly by the lake and wondered where we would end up if we went through the door in the tree! It was also lovely to watch the ducks and water fountain on…
