We always enjoy the Alice Holt Forest which is located near Farnham in Surrey. Managed by the Forestry Commission, it offers much in the way of family fun whether exploring by foot, bike or swinging through the trees with Go Ape. My mother and father-in-law had not previously been so we visited when they last stayed.
POD received a scooter for her Christmas Day birthday so Alice Holt provided a good opportunity for another practice. It was short lived though as POD’s not quite mastered steering yet! She did opt to keep the crash helmet on for a time though.
The smiles returned when POD spotted the first of the giant play structures – the 3D Maze. She had much fun inside with Daddy crawling around after her.
A little further along there was the Timberline Play Area which had a circuit that included a balancing beam, a scramble net and a climbing wall.
Although designed for older children, POD decided she wanted to give it a go. She only needed help with her footing once and reached the top super fast.
