Winkworth Arboretum – a walk and a workout

A beautiful, sunny day called for a walk with friends and Winkworth Arboretum was the perfect place for us and our boys.

We took prams for the little ones while the three year olds explored the dens and daffodils. I took the pram to ensure my two month old slept throughout the walk but I hadn’t quite contemplated the steep walk ahead of me. I was certainly deserving of the coffee afterwards!

The daffodils were beautiful to see. My son and I had admired them in bloom as early as January last year so it wasn’t too much of a surprise.


We made it down to the boat house to see the ducks and I managed to escape the geese with great thanks to one of my friends. The boys entertained themselves walking ahead of us with carefully chosen sticks spurred on by the thought of a babyccino and ice-cream.

It was a lovely morning out for some exercise and fresh air and I managed to capture some great pictures for our year book. Thank you National Trust!
