Our day out, Delamere Forest

Hope everyone had a lovely bank holiday weekend, I just love that extra day off work and getting to spend an extra day of family time. We thought we would make the most of the okish weather- well it wasn’t raining so nothing can be better than that in England, and go to Delamere Forrest which is in Cheshire.

We packed a packed lunch and Heidi had her frozen wellies on which she loves and off we went in the car. It’s probably about a 45 minute drive from we’re we live so it’s not to far. Heidi loves bridges at the minute so any bridge she seen was a great time for her, so we went over the Runcorn bridge which is quite big and she was so happy laughing and squealing in the car. I love seeing her so happy and it’s just the little things that make her happy.
When we got there we couldn’t find the main entrance so parked in another car park which was fine and right by the trail. We then noticed the Gruffolo trail and began to follow that. As we were walking we noticed other people had the Gruffolo trail packs but we carried on anyway. There was loads of clues to find the Gruffolo and his friends and places were you can take pictures and animals will appear on the pictures – I think a bit like the Pokemon app. We didn’t take any of these pictures because there was a few people waiting and Heidi was more interested in running around. We did get to see the Gruffolo though and get a few pictures.
Even if you aren’t doing the Gruffolo trail it’s a great place to go for a walk and explore in the woods, there are loads of huts and a great place to take your dogs or even a bike ride. We ended up walking to the main entrance we’re there’s a cafe, eating area, toilets and a place to hire bikes etc which is such a good idea. There are loads of spots to stop and eat if you have taken a packed lunch.
After are big walk we went back to the car, Heidi was so tired after all the walking and we were all hungry so we sat in the car and ate are packed lunch. Heidi loved it and it was nice to have a lovely morning walk and just be out in the fresh air. We will definitely be back again when the weather picks up and would recommend it to anyone.
Have you ever been?

    I think the real think beats the app photos every time for little ones. A great place to go for a family walk #Twinklytuesday
