The Great British Picnic
It’s National Picnic week this week. We’re celebrating the Great British Picnic with a Nourish twist! Picnic food doesn’t have to be dull, it can be bright, happy, nourishing nuggets of goodness. We’ve got a Picnic inspired giveaway taking place on our Facebook and Instagram pages at the moment.
Why not take a look at our favourite picnic goodies that you could win from our friends at; Fruit inspired crisps from Nims. Super dips from Chic P. Brilliant balls from Boost Balls. Nut-tastic yogurts and cream cheese from Nush. Moreish crackers from Moral Fibre. Wax wraps from Eco Lifestyle and a #macaroonmoment from yours truly!
We’re a little picnic mad here at Nourish. The minute the sun’s out (and sometimes even when it’s not!) we’re off to find a patch of grass or sand. For some it’s matching crockery and pretty tiffin boxes and for others is wax wrapped parcels popped into a rucksack. Whatever and however we picnic the one thing that we have in common is that we’ll have a pack of macaroons to nibble on with us too. When the gang is. flagging up a steep hill, drying off after some wild paddling or recovering from a run along the river our coconut macaroons are the perfect way of replenishing those energy stores!
Based in the beautiful Surrey Hills we’re blessed with plenty of picnic spots nearby in Surrey, Kent and Sussex. Here are a few of the team’s favourites. We hope they inspire you this weekend while the sun is out.
Ineke – Box Hill, near Dorking
A National Trust spot where you’ll be able to see Surrey laid out before you from the top of Box Hill. With a huge grassed area this is the perfect place for the newly crawling smallest member of the Nourish team. The views stretch out for miles. Pick up the kids trail from the top you can exhaust even the most enthusiastic walkers with the various activities along the way.
Katie – West Wittering
A little further afield but Wittering is a beautiful beach with a big views. Driving up the private road to this spot the sky just gets bigger and bigger until you arrive at the beach. We like to head to the wilder side where it’s sandy and less busy. Settle down and wander back and forth for some paddling in between courses. We love to head home with salty hair and sandy toes.
Ellerie – Chartwell
Another National Trust property, this time on the borders of Surrey and Kent. Chartwell was the home of Winston Churchill and is packed full of interesting things to explore for kids and adults alike. From the swimming pool to the prolific veggie garden. Overlooking the lake is a great picnic place and the kids can head over for a swing after they’ve refuelled.
Kate – Shere
A pretty village with lots going on. Grab a blanket and head to the stream where the kids can hunt for Crayfish. Once you’re thoroughly picnic’d out drop into the Dabbling Duck for a slice of cake and head out along the stream. The ford there is a great paddling opportunity. Follow the circular walk around the woods and back to the village and you might find the swing over the river. A great way to cool down on a hot day!
