I always love getting tips on new fun and free places to take the kids, especially when they are less than 10 min away and nearby to other family members! We got one such tip from a lovely (and thrifty) friend Nadine a few weeks ago.
We took advantage of the sunshine last weekend and decided to check it out! It was super! There is a playground with cafe over looking it with apparently amazing scones (we were too late to try them out this time – oh well will have to organise another visit), there’s an orchard, wild flower garden, a supposed pond – it was empty when we went, a walled garden where they put on plays etc and a bunny/chicken/guinea pig corner! All in all pretty much everything a good park should have!
We were there for over 2 hours walking around and took a picnic dinner to have to finish it all off! The kids loved it and it knackered them out, which is always a great side effect.
Come on summer! I can’t wait to do more things like this in glorious sunshine without jackets, boots and hats!
