Ashley is completely horse mad! So when I saw that Ruislip Park Stables took children from as young as 1 on their pony rides I couldn’t wait to take her. They have some lovey small ponies that they use for toddlers and take them on a guided walk, which you accompany them on, through the woods.
This section of the South Bucks Way is every horse lovers dream as there are horses along almost the entire route. In parts you are walking in the same field as the horses and right past their feeding stations so often end up very close to them.
The monsters of Widmer End have relocated and found a new home at the Monster Zoo. Local farmer AJ has given the monsters a home at the forest school on his land. You’ll find over 70 monsters in the Monster Zoo, with new additions being added all the time. Plus there’s an added bonus of them being next to a field of pigs with some gorgeous little piglets.
**UPDATE – MONSTER ZOO HAS REOPENED FOLLOWING WEATHER DAMAGE**
Following on from the list of places to visit in August, I’ve put together even more ideas for days out in and around Bucks. The guide includes places that have reopened their doors this month, brand new activities, plenty of indoor options for rainy days and a few others that I think you’ll love.
