Peter Rabbit's Post Office #CountryKids

Today we made our way to Limpsfield Common, a National Trust area, to see some very special little dwellings! I'd first seen them when a friend commented on a photo on Facebook and as they're only a 20 minute drive from us we had to go and see for ourselves! What am I talking about? Well some lovely volunteers have been creating some very sweet little homes on the Common, amongst them Peter Rabbit's Post Office, the Owl House and Fox Villa. 

The car park gave no clue as to where to go to see these treasures so we set off on a walk and I took some photos of what we found. The kids loved it and found it really exciting coming across each residence. When you find Peter Rabbit's Post Office you can open the door and there's a box you can leave notes or keepsakes. Isla left a little picture she quickly drew. It really was a lovely way to spend an hour or so of our time and we know we'll definitely be back when it's warmer for a picnic and it also looks like in a few weeks time there will be a multitude of bluebells.

  7. this is so adorable, I really want to build these in our den building area now, such a wonderful way to inspire imagination in children. I wonder if we could manage miniature ones in our fairy garden? Such a great idea. Thank you for sharing with me on Country Kids, I'm now off to pin them all!

  8. I forgot to leave you a comment! Charly Dove was talking about getting a trip to the Air Raid Shelters organised, if you fancy it? She didn't make it there, and it's right by the school near where all these bits are - could be fun! x
