Is there anything more Autumnal than wrapping up warm and going for a walk in the woods? Kicking up the leaves, hunting for mushrooms and stopping for a hot chocolate. There are so many beautiful woodlands in Bucks and Berkshire. In fact Burnham Beeches is one of the finest ancient woodland tracts in Britain.
AD|Press Trip At the weekend we did the Nets Adventure at Black Park and loved it! The Nets Adventure can be enjoyed by even the smallest explorers as this experience has a minimum age of just one and no height restrictions.
Leavesden Country Park is one of the best completely free days out you can have with your little ones. Not only is the park free to visit but even the parking is free! There are loads of amazing playgrounds dotted all around the park, it’s very buggy friendly and there’s also a fun heritage trail. Read my article on Leavesden Country Park for Families Chiltern Magazine here.
Langley Park in Iver is one of the Buckinghamshire’s Country Parks and a beautiful place to go for a walk. From late March/April through to June the Temple Gardens are filled with colourful rhododendrons.

WOW! This place is amazing! We had the best time at Wellington Country Park and loved it so much we went twice in one week! There is so much to do for children of every age including a farm, splash park, loads of playgrounds, jumping pillows, a miniature railway, a dinosaur trail and more. The whole park is very scenic and is centred around a big lake in the middle.
As more places are starting to open up I thought it would be useful to share some ideas for places to visit this August in Bucks and surrounding areas.
Ray Mill Island in Maidenhead was such a great discovery at the weekend and one we had no idea was there! The island is a great place to spend an afternoon, enjoy a picnic and let your little ones play and make new friends with the guinea pigs and birds.
