Family Fun at Moors Valley Country Park

With the return of the British spring weather, we spent a sunny Saturday in March with our family at Moors Valley Country Park, in Dorset.

Moors Valley has been home to countless picnics, muddy boots and steam train rides over the years for us, and today we got to re-live some of our childhood memories with the next generation.

Set in the beautiful woodlands of Ringwood Forest, Moors Valley is a great day out for all ages, with a nature trail speckled with huts, animals and climbing frames to get kids moving. Sure, there will be muddy knees and perhaps a few bumped heads, but all are soon forgotten as you move from stop to stop.

I can still remember the old home video's of me on the climbing frames, a little to short and relying on a helping hand from an adult to complete the courses, but there's nothing like taking a plunge and testing your limits. Year's later I still love watching those moments, even if I can't quite remember them myself!

Our nieces, Millie 6, Abigale 3, Hollie 1 and Isabel 0.4 had a great time playing in the parks and exploring in the woods and we made a short video with out GoPro Hero4 Session of our day.

The on site cafe serves hot drinks, Dorset Tea, cake and lunches but you're also welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy by the duck pond.
