EMBERTON COUNTRY PARK: Beautiful country park just outside of Olney with fun varied play areas for children. Toddler loved the pirate ship – parks with boats or trains are just the best aren’t they?! He found the trampolines in the ground great to bounce on too. There’s a big slide which was popular with the bigger ones. Nice sand pit – worth taking a bucket and spade if your child likes to dig, there’s diggers to sit on as well. We didn’t venture far in to the park (it’s set over 200 acres) but we liked walking along the trails and a bridge up to a bird hide. It’s FREE but costs £4.10 to park your car which is payable at the entrance.
On a quiet day you can park for free on nearby roads and walk in, it’s about a 10 min toddler walk. The only downside is that there is a road which runs through the park so keep a close eye on the little ones. You can camp there.
We visited in May 2015 so please check the website for all the latest information and details about camping.
