On one of our day trips from London, we decided to head to Brighton. Unfortunately, we found it a little underwhelming (more on that later) and so, we did some quick Googling before finding the cutest place in the universe (I’m not even sure that I’m exaggerating).
Half way back to our accommodation, we stopped in Surrey Hills, specifically the Limpsfield common – a super easy walk through a huge range of native plants and heaps of bluebells at this time of year (May).
The main draw-card, and reason I’ve decided to post about this is the woodland creatures homes. As per their website;
“Discover a miniature world on Limpsfield Common. National Trust Volunteers have built mini houses for woodland creatures. Discover Hedgehog Hall, Peter Rabbit’s Post Office, Fox Villa and more. If you’re lucky, and as quiet as a mouse, you may even spot one of our secretive woodland creatures. A good time to visit is first thing in the morning or last thing at night. You can find Ridlands Grove just off Ridlands Lane which is about half a mile south of the A25 on the B269 (Kent Hatch Road) heading towards Edenbridge from Oxted.”
There was even a swing there that we had a bit of fun with. We were also lucky to see some squirrels!
I would highly recommend this area, it’s really peaceful, easy to walk around and it’s fun finding all the little houses too!
I’ll write again soon!
