A walkabout mum – my favourite walk in Worcestershire
Walking with my young son is very enjoyable in the county, we really are spoilt for choice. I like the Woodland and Meadow Trail at Worcester Woods Country Park
The Woodland and Meadows Trail at the Countryside Centre is not so much a hiking adventure but rather an easy going circular stroll. It's just far enough to let little ones explore on their own and tire legs out for a seamless naptime! (yeah, right).
There are lots to see whilst on the Woodland and Meadows Trail – beautiful bluebell woods, wildflower meadows and a pond attracting lots of wildlife. Perfect for feeding the ducks - it's always a pleaser - unless your children are anything like ours and prefer to eat the bread themselves. We've even spotted some terrapins lurking over in the corner by the little bridge before now.
The ground is flat and solid with no stiles which is perfect for walking with the pushchair if needs be. We've also walked around with the baby carrier before as it's not too far and there are plenty of benches about to take a short break.
In addition to the Woodland and Meadows Trail, there is a huge open field perfect for picnics, BBQs and games. Many times on a sunny day I've met friends with babies and toddlers in tow to catch up in a safe environment with lots to keep us occupied.
Also onsite is a busy award winning café with two adventure playgrounds for all ages – swings, slides and climbing equipment – what more could a child want!
