I love when I do a quick Google search on holiday and find a blinding place to go. Somewhere beautiful, fun and appropriate for kids of course. That has loos, some water to splash in, cafe for some seriously needed caffeine and lots of things to look at. If you're heading down to the South Coast in the summer then look no further. Upton Country Park has all of the above and free parking. Yes I said free. 

It really is one of my favourite places to go with Theo, he adores every aspect of it and we have often spent the entire 8 hours worth of sunlight basking in all its glory.

Within the walled gardens is a water fountain, cafe and ice cream bar containing every flavour you could possibly imagine and the friendliest staff too. The food is tasty and cost effective but there is always the option of a picnic. The floral displays and soft grass makes for the perfect environment to eat al fresco.

Just outside are tonnes and tonnes of grassy fields and beautiful walks. The kids have the choice of a tree 'stump' converted to a slide and a circular climbing frame safe for most ages. It's almost like a grounded tree house and although very basic, kids adore it.

In front and behind Upton House are more picnic spots along with more dreamy logs for kids to explore. 

Or snooze on if you're Theo!
I would really recommend a trip here if you are around and if you have any spots that you think I'd love then hit me up in the comments bar below or any of my social media platforms!

We are very fortunate to live in such a gorgeous part of the UK and usually find lots of things going on. As a family we get limited time all together and a free weekend arose so we decided to head down to a local festival. There were tonnes of activities for children, along with live music and food carts with a huge variety of bites to fill your tum. I'm trying to take every opportunity to capture moments and really hope you enjoy browsing our pictures as much as I did photographing our day.
