Sensational South Downs Saunters With Kids!

This week we're bringing you three brilliant mud-free adventures in the beautiful South Downs National Park, right on our doorsteps! Don't worry - each adventure starts from a car park at the top of the hill - no crazy hill climbs here!

Why are the South Downs mud-free? The open chalk grassland enables water to drain really quickly and paths are seldom overgrown. The landscape gently undulates - perfect for families!

But before scrolling down please can we ask a quick favour?

Please help us (and your friends!) by sharing this post on Facebook (link at bottom) and subscribing to our updates for new adventures.
