As we find ourselves with a bit more freedom, with life gradually beginning to get back to normal, we have been given the green light for unlimited time outdoors. This means we can enjoy spending time in the great outdoors finding the perfect picnic spot with friends and family.

Picnics in the park are a quintessentially British pastime; an opportunity for loved ones to gather together, get some well-needed Vitamin D, and dive into a fantastic array of crowd-pleasing finger foods. With July being National Picnic Month, you might be wondering where to take the family for a memorable day out.  Here at Millwood, we build homes close to some first-class picnic spots; meaning residents can grab their blankets, baskets, and strawberry punnets, and reap the rewards of the great outdoors.

Our charming collection of homes at Cherry Tree Lane perfectly encapsulates the phrase ‘quaint country living’. Homes here enjoy a prominent location,  nestled between the well-renowned Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the South Downs National Park – perfect for picnics all year round. Residents can also enjoy all that verdant Surrey has to offer at the popular Box HillLeith Hill, or Pitch Hill – all of which offering idyllic picnicking spots for families.

For those searching for that all-important sea air, Bakers Field in Cliffsend lays neatly between the Pegwell Bay area – bordered by the Sandwich and Pegwell Bay Nature Reserve and the popular coastal town of Ramsgate. Crack into a tin of Pimms at any of the respective locations, and you’re sure to have a fantastic day.

Honey sandwiches are a real blast from the past, and an all-time favourite for the Nation’s favourite stuffed bear, Winnie the Pooh. Why not venture over to the Ashdown Forest for your summer picnic – home of Pooh Bear, and close to our gorgeous Crowborough development, Coppice End. Enjoying a picturesque woodland setting, Coppice End comprises just 18 exclusive properties, ranging from three to five-bedrooms.
