✅Chocolate box village
✅Quaint village green
✅Cricket club
✅Breath-taking countryside views
✅Incredible playground

When you drive up to this beautiful village green for the first time you will hardly believe your eyes. It is so very pretty with thatched houses and cottages, so very quintessentially English with its Brakespear pub and cricket club on the green, so very manicured with its precisely cut lawn, and so wonderful with a playground so thoughtfully designed.

This play park is made up of a long obstacle course and 2 play structures with short obstacle courses attached. Some of the climbing parts on the play structures are challenging – I know this because i had a go on them! There is also swings for big and small, a rope nest swing, a castle, zip wire, slides, climbing walls and a huge green to run around, complete with goal posts.

The obstacle course is low so at a good level for adult supervision, which is what most children under the age of 3 will need. Parts of the other 2 play structures are geared more to an older age group, with quite high climbing and balancing required. Little ones will be thrilled with the castle on the hill though and enjoy waving at their loyal subjects – aka us, the parents!

It’s hard to do this village green/play park combo justice in photos, so I urge you to go there yourself. One of the Google reviews puts it perfectly: ‘So good it should be kept secret.’ Oops!
