If you go down to the woods…

On Sunday we ticked off another activity from the Christmas bucket list. We visited Birches Valley in the heart of Cannock chase, it’s run by the forestry commission and is a lovely place to walk,play,have an ice cream in summer or a nice warm drink as it gets colder. The gruffalo and stick man trail is one of the main kiddie attractions along side the park, and for thrill seekers there’s Go Ape and Segway riding plus numerous biking trails. It’s close to our town so we spend a lot of time up there.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

In winter it transforms into a little winter wonderland, there’s little log cabins serving drinks and food, mmm the doughnuts were amazing! Plenty of places for photo opportunities and an awful lot of real Christmas trees to choose from.

No festive trip would be complete without a visit to see the big man himself, it’s costs £10 and you get to see santa’s reindeer, have a good old chat with santa. You get a present from santa and a baby real Christmas tree, such a special memento of Ava’s first Christmas, my son had one when he was one and it’s still going strong!
