Escot Visit August
Only 20 minutes drive away this is a great day out to spend time with family, walking through woods with wild boar, wet lands, birds of prey, watching the otters being fed and red squirrels if you can spot them. In amongst the trees there are play areas and even a 'drop slide' to keep the active youngsters entertained. The beech maize is great fun for all. I really enjoyed the birds of prey display. There is also a small barn play area for small children.
My three girls (aged 12) really wanted to do the wetlands bog walk which really is wading through mud up to your waist, but this has to be booked in advance and is at specific times and dates. However even though they had set their hearts on this they were not disapointed and having got rid of me eventually I did not see them for at least a couple of hours. I found myself a delightful spot in which to relax, in the walled garden amongst the peacocks, pheasants and fruit trees. One of the best things about Escot is that is uncommercial and unspoilt. The grounds are kept but not manicured and have a tremendous feeling of freedom. The girls intermittantly came back and i asked if they had found the rope swing, off they went again. We had a great day out and it will not be long before we will return, we didn't get round to doing the letter boxing or visit the seahorse trust, and its just as good in the winter as the summer.
