Whenever I see my boyfriend we always plan some days out together, sometimes its a simple trip to the coast which is by far my favourite of adventures but lately I am obsessed with going on long walks around gardens and beautiful places.
The other weekend when my children went to their dad and his girlfriends house, my lovely guy friend suggested we take a little trip to Ashridge, which is roughly 2000 acers of woodland with a beautiful home in the middle of it. it wasn’t to far away and compared to the other national trust locations wasn’t to expensive either.
The weather of course wasn’t on our side but that didn’t stop us from having a wonderful Saturday walking around, exploring the woodland and catching glimpses of wildlife here and there, S was sure he saw a hornet and I of course kept the look out for any robins that I could see, there was so many old and beautiful trees dotted about and the trail we followed took us around this stunning meadow full of tall grass and fox gloves.
Whenever I go to these places I always imagine that my children would love it, this by far as been the best place I want to take them, from when I took them to Epping Forest they just love exploring and Robin has this obsession with collecting every single stick she can find and she would have adored this place!
I cannot wait to go back and explore with them and hopefully one day with S in tow, there is always something so magical about a big adventure in the woods.
We didn’t go into the house itself as we simply didn’t find it that’s how big the area is, I would love to go again and explore the house as well along with other parts of this amazing place.
I wonder what other fun adventures me and my lovely man friend can get up to in future days out! I will definitely have to keep you posted..
