I imagine we’re probably not alone in having friends and family scattered across the UK. Living in the Midlands, it’s fairly easy to travel to most places, but even so, distance makes it tricky to meet up as often as we’d like without synchronising diaries months in advance to organise overnight stays.
This year, I’ve resolved that in order to spend more time with loved ones, we ought to try and find equidistant locations for days out that everyone can get to without too much travelling. We can have a great time together yet still collapse in our own beds at the end of the day.
With this in mind, when planning a get-together with family who live on the south coast, we looked around the Oxfordshire/Berkshire area for somewhere we could meet up with the dogs, and settled on Bowdown Woods, Berks, Bucks & Oxon Wildlife Trust’s largest woodland reserve in Berkshire.
