Lynford Arboretum

I’ve been meaning to go here for ages and I’m so glad we did eventually visit a few weekends ago! It’s a great set of managed trails – one of which is an access-tested trail with good surfaces. There are three trails to choose from – we did a mash-up of all three and there... Continue Reading →

Autumn Nuts & Seeds Challenge

I love having "something to do" on a walk and during lockdown we used our Seek app every day to identify plants and insects.  Having crunched my way through many a walk over the last few weeks, I decided to create a little autumn nuts and seeds challenge for my little girl - so thought...

Burlingham Woods

(Last visited August 2020) My happy place! Situated between Norwich and Great Yarmouth, this is a beautiful woodland that extends far and wide, connecting Burlingham to local villages across field paths and therefore making the trails ideal to explore further as your child grows. There is a 1.5 mile loop which is accessible for pushchairs... Continue Reading →

Spout Hills

(Last visited August 2020) This is a magical little place – a beautiful pond, a stream for paddling, hills for scrambling, trees for climbing, wildflowers and bulrushes... it’s beautiful. It’s really close to Holt – if you go past the turning to the high street, there’s a lay-by a little further down the road and... Continue Reading →

Sculthorpe Moor

(Last visited July 2018) Stunning! We found Sculthorpe Moor in summer 2018 and it's possibly the most access-friendly place I've found yet - like Barton Broad and Ranworth, it's all boarded apart from a short section at the beginning. Wheelchairs, pushchairs and double pushchairs...all will be absolutely fine. It's truly lovely - we loved it... Continue Reading →

Ladybelt Country Park

(Last visited October 2019) Ladybelt Country Park is one of my go-to, favourite local-to-Norwich walks.  It is a great location all times of the year - is a fabulous mix of woodland and grassland, with some sculptures, an old icehouse and is brilliant for a nice dog walk. The Park has been carefully nurtured back... Continue Reading →

Harrison’s Wood

(Last visited November 2019) We first went to Harrison's Wood in Sprowston in autumn 2018 and it was bursting with different colours - it's a really diverse woodland and really close to the city. It has woodland surfaces, but they didn't seem too bad after the rain and apart from a few rooty patches, pushchairs... Continue Reading →

Trowse Woods

(Last visited August 2020) A lovely little wood off Whitlingham Lane – I must have driven past it on the way to Whitlingham so many times and not noticed it! Just over a mile round but definitely “undulating” to put it gently! Some quite steep climbs.  Which, of course, my daughter loved and proceeded to... Continue Reading →

Foxley Woods

(Last visited July 2020) This little beauty is mainly known for its beautiful bluebells in May but sadly lockdown meant we missed them this year.  We did, however, have a lovely walk through the woods here in July. It’s a Norfolk Wildlife Trust reserve - a very straightforward loop through the woodland and back along... Continue Reading →
