Moors Valley is a country park on the border of Dorset and Hampshire. It’s amazing. It’s got a great big play park for big kids and a separate one for smaller kids, a huge field for picnics next to a fishing lake, a golf course, a visitor centre and cafe, a train you can go on, GoApe course & segway tours, a huge playtrail that takes you around the forest, a tree top trail and best of all, it’s completely free. (Except the car park, which is quite expensive, but there are plenty of ways to access Moors Valley from other parts of the forest without paying for parking).
We go to Moors Valley quite often but I’ve only actually blogged about it once before, back in March when Hux was only 5 months old and couldn’t really go on many things. Nick and I have both been going since we were little and we really love it. We park in my hometown of Verwood at Potterne Park and walk 20 minutes through the forest to get there as it’s quite a nice walk and means you don’t have to pay for the car park.
Now that Huxley can walk he had an absolute blast. He crawled around the bird’s nest and the snakes and just went for it on the massive slide in the park. When I put the video on Facebook, my stepdad said ‘wow you were brave letting go of him at the top of that big slide’ and I said we didn’t even get a chance to grab hold of him let alone let go of him! He was off as soon as he got there!
