If you are anything like us, you may be looking for something free to do at the weekends or you may have already started planning for Half term activities (I’m personally not that organised yet- but i know some people are already thinking about it) whilst the weather is still on the better side I think most of us want to get outdoors. Before we all get trapped indoors with the freezing and wet weather. Apart from the change in temperature I really love this time of year. Autumn brings with it amazing colours, crisp air and if we are lucky beautiful blue skies. One of my favourite things is taking a walk with my family, watching my boys exploring, burning of some energy and enjoying the outdoors with big smiles on their faces.
One place I thought people might be interested to hear about/visit that we have been to recently is Rushmore Country Park
( Heron View Visitor Centre, Linslade Road, Heath & Reach, Bedfordshire LU7 0EB)
I highly recommend it to any local mums looking to get their children outdoors, costing next to nothing (£3). It’s approx 1 hr from South Oxfordshire (Between Milton Keynes and Leighton Buzzard). It is a lovely woodland for children to explore with hidden fairy doors, a HUGE (FAST) slide, wooden sculptures and a giant chair. The boys loved scooting/walking though the forest exploring what surprise was around each corner. There are various walks to follow, we personally did not feel these were clear to follow, signage was poor! However that aside we took a short half an hour walk/scoot around a circuit which took us past some big sculptures and fairy doors.
Near the car park there is a visitor centre and cafe (we did not visit these as we arrived after they were shut so cannot comment on them but apparently there is breath taking views from the cafe), some toilets and a small play area where you will find one slightly hidden at first big (fast slide) for the over 5’s. Alongside the fairy doors this was the high light for the boys.
It Is all FREE to walk around and the car park is £3 to park all-day. Do take the correct change, as they only accept cash and you pay on the way out at the unmanned exit barrier. Making this a very reasonable, relaxing day out for all.
Please double-check the latest information for opening times, prices and facilities before leaving home at their website.
