Today we visited the beautiful Ashdown Park Hotel and Country Club. It’s surrounded by Ashdown Forest, which according to the famous children’s author, A. A. Milne, is the woodland that inspired his Winnie The Pooh stories. I pre-ordered a picnic for us (including a Winnie The Pooh picnic for Rorykins which consisted of honey sandwiches, fruit, carrots, a Winnie The Pooh cupcake and a chocolate brownie) which we collected from the main house and then strolled out into the grounds to choose a lovely and quiet spot to eat. A truly beautiful part of the country.
