As a family we enjoy going for a walk, but since Max came along and then now with Lockdown for Covid-19 we have kind of got out of the habit of going and when we do we have just been walking around the local estates. I have walked the estate so many times over the last few months that I could do it with my eye closed I think! So we have been trying to get out of the house more and I am on a mission to discover new walks that are pushchair friendly in West Sussex. Even though I have lived in the areas for over 19 years now I am guilty of not really venturing to many different places for our walks, so it’s nice to discover new places. This discovery a few weekends ago is an absolute gem.
RSPB Medberry is a nature reserve between Selsey and Wittering in West Sussex and is absolutely beautiful countryside scenery, alive with nature and leading down to the sea. There is a couple of free car parks and the paths are suitable for pushchairs, which is fab. There are some benches along the route for bird watching or having a spot of lunch and you end up on the pebble beach, where you could walk to bracklesham bay too, although that route is along the pebbles, so not so pushchair friendly. We stopped on the beach for a snack and drink and to take in the view. Max fell asleep on the return walk and Mulder was also getting tired (he is a lazy dog and a little overweight, so our walks are also focussed on helping him get his weight down). I would say that the whole walk without the snack break would have been around 40-60 minutes depending on how fast you walk, so perfect for a family walk.
