8. Ashdown Forest, East Sussex
Famous as the setting for A A Milne’s Winnie the Pooh stories, Ashdown Forest is a fantastic place for a family walk, especially if you take in the famous Poohsticks Bridge. A downloadable leaflet from the Ashdown Forest website describes two great short walks. Remember to collect some sticks as you go, ready to try your hand at Christoper Robin et al’s favourite pastime.
