Park
“In the Hampshire countryside, seven miles south of Reading, there’s a big outdoor recreation area opened in 1974 by the 8th Duke and Duchess of Wellington. The park has 350 acres of hardwood and softwood forest, woven with four nature trails and a habitat for fallow and red deer. The park also has a 35-acre lake with a cafe on its shore, and when the summer comes there’s loads for children to get up to. Domestic animals await at the animal farm and petting barn, there are adventure playgrounds, a miniature train, sandpits, a maze, “enchanted forest” and 12 holes of mini-golf.”

“We really like this pub. It's a 40 minute walk from home through gorgeous countryside and past the village cricket green - you don't get much more quintessentially English than that! The food is always excellent and the service is very friendly. There is a nice outside area with quirky seats made from decking. The road is a little noisy but it doesn't spoil our time. We highly recommend the Picpoul de Pinet white wine as it's the wine we selected for our wedding!”
