The Sunday walk has started to become a thing. One for some exercise, because I’m not exactly getting any slimmer sitting on the sofa, and two for a little exploring. Who knew Sussex had so many pretty locations to explore.
The obvious ones are the various National Trust sites, mainly beautiful gardens to have a nose round, some with houses and most with a cafe because a cake and coffee treat is sometimes required. You can also make friends with the ducks if you fancy.
Next up is the Bluebell Line and before you roll your eyes and say Rach how many times do you wanna talk about the Bluebell Stations, It’s got a little twist. There are several walks near Kingscote Station that take you through picturesque fields with great spots for picnics and taking a few pictures. Oh and if you pick the right time of year theres lots of bluebells.
Oust Valley Viaduct is basically along the Balcombe road. If you’re into architecture you’ll love it but also it’s just pretty epic so whats not to love about having a wander. There are plenty of picture opportunities if you’re into that too. We all know I am.
Jack and Gill windmills is another pretty impressive place. I kinda love the windmills, just because they’re a little bit old fashioned. But the views are also great and the cows are super friendly. It’s one of those places thats a bit windy, careful not to get blow away. Jokes aside it’s that feeling of you know you’ll sleep well tonight.
Heaven farm is our newest find, thanks to some friends. I’d love to take the credit but my nose would definitely grow from telling lies. The walks are peaceful and pretty and bluebell season is Like nothing I’ve seen before. You quite literally can’t move for bluebells. Sadly it’s pretty much over but there’s always next year.
Let me know your favourite places to explore.
