Tilly was out for ‘walkies’ again! This time at Newlands Corner, which is not far from Guildford in Surrey. This proved to be a very good decision as my son and daughter in law had not been there before.
It was an extremely sunny and hot day and as we walked up and down the hills and let Tilly enjoy herself, we were glad to see that there were benches located around the area. Some of these benches had been dedicated to loved ones who had passed on, obviously they too had enjoyed the stunning views on many an occasion. We had a picnic sitting on one of these well-placed benches and enjoyed the view at the same time.
After our picnic we walked slowly around and we came across many others walking their dogs, or just simply walking. Although there were plenty of people around, it was certainly not overcrowded or obviously populated, indeed, the area is so large it frequently looked empty.
After a good long walk/run, we went back up to the car park and noticed ice cream for sale. We had been informed that the food served at the café there was excellent but it was so hot, we just needed ice cream! It was large, reasonably priced, cold and delicious. We sat outside the café in the sunshine and enjoyed the ice cream. We were very pleased to notice that there were bowls of water for the dogs dotted around too as well as toilets, picnic tables and ample parking around the area.
A lovely afternoon indeed.
