Visit the South Downs for a family adventure weekend. Get away from the hustle of everyday life and spend time together enjoying an extensive range of outdoor activities. Here are a selection of places to visit in the Surrey Hills for a day of outdoor adventure with the whole family.
Take a walk with a Llama
Trek the Surrey Hills for a day with your own Llama, great fun for everyone. Experienced guides will help steer you through the surrounding countryside, an average route being three miles with the optional picnic stop. Who will be your llama for the day, Mungo, Ernesto or Lorenzo?!
Take a trip to Go Ape Alice Holt
Get a tree top view of the South Downs. There is a family adventure course suited for the whole family, from the Treetop Adventure suited for young children to the Treetop Challenge for the more adventurous members of the family. Finish the day by taking a trip to the woodland playground or cycle along the many woodland bike trails.
Pay a visit to Cowdray Country Estate
So much more than just the home of British polo. A great place to visit for a long walk, visit the magical castle ruins, explore the walled garden and have a paddle in the sandy bay just located off the main track to the castle. Bring a picnic or enjoy some delicious locally sourced food from the farm shop or café on the estate.
Visit West Wittering Beach
Soak up the sea air at West Wittering sandy beach. The water’s clean (it’s a blue flag beach) and is the ideal place for families to learn to Surf, SUP, Windsurf and Kite surf with tuition offered through 2XS right on the waterfront. Children will also love playing hide and seek in the sand dunes and body boarding in the shallow water. It's the perfect beach day all year round.
Spend time at Queen Elizabeth Country Park
With over 2,000 acres of open woodland, it is the perfect place to visit for a day of family outdoor adventure. There is something for everyone, three walking trails, two cycling trails, play area, café, dog agility course and even an outdoor pizza oven that you can hire. Beyond the Mud also offer mountain biking skill sessions for children and adults alike. This is most definitely an action packed way to spend the day.
