Childhood Memories Of Snowy Days

Snow days are few and far between here in our part of Surrey so we always like to make the most of it while it lasts.

Last night we had a little snow fall and the kids were itching to get out in it and play.

When I was little we would always visit Happy Valley in Coulsdon.  The wide open grasslands and steep slopes make it the perfect place for building snowmen, snowball fights and sledging.

I spent many a happy day with my family climbing the huge slopes to come flying down on sledges.  We would be there for hours on end freezing cold and soaking wet but never wanting to go home!

Today we set off with three of our little ones to relive a few memories with them.

We were annoyed when we arrived as we had underestimated the amount of snow that had fallen and failed to bring our sledges.  This didn’t stop us as the steepness of the slopes was enough to carry the children down without the use of a sledge.

Once they had worn themselves out on the hills we made our way back up to the top to take in the beautiful views, runaround in the snow and of course a snowball fight.


If we are lucky enough to get anymore snow this year then this a must visit place.  I know that we have all got our fingers crossed for a little bit more of the white stuff soon!
