We’ve all been pretty exhausted since returning from our holiday a few weeks ago, and I’ve completely failed to catch up with work, school stuff and my revision meaning we’ve all generally been a bit grumpy and fed up, so last weekend headed to Alice Holt which always brings the best out in us all.
I love that we’re all outdoors together, the kids love been able to run free, climb trees and explore the forest. For four whole hours there were no arguments, only a few requests for food and lots and lots of smiles.
We usually start off with the Habitat Trail and work our way round to the big play area. The new tunnels were a huge hit with the kids, who spent ages running through and on top of them.
We left a bit hot, sweaty and grubby but much happier.
Is there anything better than a day in the forest?
I’m hoping we’ll manage a family bike ride over half term, we tried just after Christmas, but Hannah found it quite tough at the time on her little bike, I’m hopeful that now she’ll find it much easier. Wish us luck!
Ahh look at them all. We love being in the forest too, lots of fun xx

Looks lovely. So nice to be out in the sunshine. Good luck with your ride.
This looks like such a lovely place. Have fun on your bike ride – it’s great when they get it, and you can go off for the day and have an adventure!
Gosh Emma, your boy looks so grown up! Lovely shots, and Alice Holt sounds like a nice place to visit… xx
What a fab place to visit with the kids! Enjoy your bike ride x
I hear such good things about Alice Holt and I totally sympathise with you and the post holiday exhaustion. Catching back up with everything is draining!
Oh I LOVE Alice Holt! Came across it completely by accident one summer and it is SO much fun!
That looks like a great place for the whole family – I can’t wait until next week to catch up on much needed sleep and lots of fun x
There is something magical about having the freedom in a forest. I love taking the children out in the summer holidays.
