Popping Back To Find Peter Rabbit

Last year we took a trip to Limpsfield Common, Surrey to take a walk in the bluebell woods where we were over the moon to discover the wooded area was home to some magical little homes that housed Peter Rabbit and his friends.

I had caught sight of some bluebells popping their heads up over the past few weeks so decided to make a return visit today.

Number four was so excited about going and this time decided he wanted to write a letter to leave in the little post office when we got there.  It had clearly left an impression on him last year as it could recall it all perfectly.

We first came across the pretty little home of the hedgehog’s that number five was most taken with.

We didn’t stop here for long as number four had a firm grip on his letter that he was eager to leave for Peter Rabbit.

We made our way through the delicate bluebells in search of more of the miniature houses that the children so love.

The bluebell weren’t so abundant this year but I’m not sure if we were a little early.

Number four caught sight of the tiny post office and made a beeline straight for it.

He placed his letter inside and both the boys had a little cuddle with Peter Rabbit.  There was more than a little strop when number five realised he couldn’t take it home with him!

Strop dealt with they made their way over to a large area that was covered with felled trees.  They love nothing more than clambering on tree trunks and picking up sticks so this was perfect.

We finished off our trip with a swing on the newly added ‘Squirell Nutkin’ tree swing.  It is in such a tranquil spot  I could have sat there all day.

Everything about this place is simply stunning and well worth a visit with or without the bluebells.

  1. I went looking for this today. Could you tell me where it is?? We saw conflicting signs! Is it near the playground/cricket club ? My 3 year old and friend went on quite a walk around but peter rabbit was no where to be found 🙁 it looks so idyllic in your beautiful pics !

    1. Oh my goodness I’m so sorry I’ve only just seen this!
      If you go in through the Ridlands Grove entrance you will find a small car park and it’s a few minutes walk from there.
      Please let me know if you find it x

  2. I remember you going here last year, it looks like such a magical walk. I hadn’t realised there was a little rabbit living in the Peter rabbit house, I can just imagine every child wanting to take it home after discovering it there! Our bluebells have been late this year too, I think it is the below average temperatures for April, still, hopefully they will hang around for longer! thank you for sharing a beautiful woodland with a little magic over on #CountryKids
