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.
Chobham Adventure Farm is all about the ADVENTURE! Whilst they do have a animal barn for us the main attractions were the play zones. They have two large adventure playgrounds for different ages, two giant jumping pillows (again for different ages) and a huge sandpit.
We had such an amazing time at Odds Farm this week. We’ve been a couple of times before but this is the first time that she’s been at the right age (she is just over 2) to absolutely LOVE it! There is so much to do at Odds Farm and they have a great mix of both animal experiences and play 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.
Who knew there were fields full of alpacas in Great Missenden? There is a lovely short walk you can take through the alpaca fields which you can combine with cake and coffee at Peterley Manor Farm for the perfect afternoon!
Aldenham Country Park in Elstree has so many activities to enjoy with your little ones. Set in 100 acres of countryside you can enjoy scenic walks, playgrounds, ride Pony’s, explore Winnie The Pooh’s home in 100 Aker Woods and meet the animals on the farm.
If you’re ever having a bad day and need cheering up, then head for the wildflower meadow in Frieth. There are wildflowers as far as your eye can see and it’s such a beautiful sight. The 34 acre meadow is filled with colourful poppies, cornflowers and golden wattle.
The Savill Garden features some of the best ornamental gardens and exotic woodlands in the UK and has recently reopened it’s gates. Located within Windsor Great Park it is a beautiful place to explore with your little ones.
This was our first visit to Grey’s Court and even though a number of areas were closed we enjoyed a lovely few hours there and found it very toddler friendly. Anywhere with baby lambs and calves gets her vote of approval and I really enjoyed the beautiful views and how peaceful and quiet it was.
The musical trail at The Grove Hotel has been our favourite lockdown discovery and we’ve been several times in the last few weeks. It’s fun, a perfect length for little legs and has the bonus of a beautiful wildflower meadow at the end to get some amazing photos of your little one.
