The weeks seem to be merging into one at the moment, each passing quicker than the previous. I guess that’s a good thing because it’s busy but I can’t help but feel I need a break. A chance to switch off and stop for a minute.
So a few weekends ago, after a well deserved lay in, Tom and I decided to venture out into the surrey countryside and stumbled across a little village called Churt. Naturally we gravitated towards the nearest watering hole for refreshments. We parked up at Bel & the Dragon and found a nice peaceful spot in the garden. Their food menu looks so nice we decided to stay for some lunch as well as a little refreshing beverage. They have a great woodfire oven in the garden for freshly made pizza’s which Tom was eyeing up, while I fancied a risotto.
After lunch and a suitable amount of time lounging in the sunshine, we went across the road to a sculpture park – one of surrey’s best kept secrets apparently! We walked for a good 5 minutes threw some pretty woodlands until we got to a little cottage which was the reception where a very polite member of staff helped us purchase our tickets to the park. I wasn’t expecting to see any pieces of art before we entered but you see a lot of sculptures as soon as you step food into the woods.
This was the perfect little woods to explore and escape some of the direct sunshine. It was fun to see pieces of art in a natural setting surrounded by beautiful countryside. It’s a 2 mile walk around so you can get lost in the woods for a good few hours.
Who else loves escaping to the countryside? As much as I love London, I think secretly the countryside is my favourite place. It’s so relaxing and peaceful.
