Day out at Fineshade Woods

Thursday, May 28, 2015


Yesterday we went on a little journey to somewhere we hadn't been before. We went to the other side of the county to a place called Fineshade Woods in East Northamptonshire.


It is a lovely wood with lots of trails for walking and cycling and has some playgrounds for the kids too. 


There was an activity trail around the wood for the kids to follow and keep them entertained. Hollie loved finding the next clue.



One of the playgrounds was called tree house and was a wooden climbing frame that Hollie enjoyed. 




There was quite a few wigwams being made with sticks and the kids seem to love this!




There is a lovely cafe and barns with lots of seating to eat and relax.




The second playground was bigger and also better for Amelia to play on. 


They liked sitting in the little house which had a slide. Could do with one of these at home!




They both enjoyed the slide and Hollie enjoyed the hammock too. 





The car park reminded me so much of the ones at Centre Parcs, Random fact I know but think it was the way the trees are lined up!




It's great to find somewhere different to visit and it was great to see that it was well maintained and looked really pretty. We will be back again sometime to investigate more of the trails.

The 7 year old managed to take the stair gate out when playing with a cardboard box. She was quite pleased with herself. Who needs toys!  p.s. she is still in the box in the photo and wouldn't get out!
