Debbie does...round the world
5th May 2014 - England/Wales day trips
High Beeches West Sussex

Bank Holiday Monday with nothing more to do than take the grandchild out for a run around in the spring air. We were going to Nymans as free entry for us adults but long queues and cars parked down the road so a quick uturn and found another spot that was just down the raod and just as delightful.

High Beeches - £7 entry per adult, hilly but good paths etc so fine for pushchairs and wheelchairs for the strong pushing uphill.

Beautiful place and we were here for a good 3 hours wandering around, chasing after the grandchild who takes a perverse delight in going the wrong way, lots of little bridges and streams as his latest is throwing stuff in, he loved the pamphlet with the 'donk' on the cover (donkey) and delighted us with his never stopping repertoire of animals and their sounds. I think he has found his conversation piece that adults respond to so we mooed and baaed and neighed our way around. Spring is a great time to visit as beautiful colours everywhere from flowers, trees, bushes and the bluebells still out.

Ended the afternoon at the cafe as a great opportunity to get the cream tea I didnt get yesterday - what a palaver. Twas mid afternoon, a small queue that was the slowest ever - only one person serving who could not have been any slower if she had tried so although I was 4th in line - 25 mins later I was getting served. I just wanted to get in behind the counter and help out. Anyway the cream tea was average, the icecream for the grandchild went down a treat as did the wafer biscuit. Great afternoon out
