One of our favourite finds of last year was Rushmere Country Park near Leighton Buzzard. It's a really great, family orientated park.
On New Year's Eve, we wanted to get outdoors for a couple of hours so headed off to the Park. Little Miss A loved finding all the fairy doors on previous visits (you can read more about our first visit to Rushmere County Park). We decided to visit again as I'd seen that they had a Fairy Trail running over the Christmas period.
We collected a Trail sheet from the Visitors Centre which cost £2 but you got a fun Christmas pencil to use and keep!
There were 5 fairies hidden in the trees to find (there were meant to be 6 but unfortunately one had gone missing). They were lovely statues and some you needed a really good eye to spot, but once Little Miss A knew what she was looking for then she enjoyed finding them.
Once we'd spotted all the fairies, we just took a general wander. Little Miss A kept finding the biggest muddy puddles to go through!
On the way back to the cafe and playground, Little Miss A found lots of the fairy doors. There have been some new doors added since our last visit.
The walk was just what we needed to blow the cobwebs away. I'm sure there will be more visits to this great park in 2016.
It's worth keeping an eye out on the Rushmere Country Park Facebook page for future events.
