Children of the Corn – Snapshots of a Weekend at The Rolling Downs Shepherd's Hut


We have just spent the weekend at The Rolling Downs, a pair of shepherd’s huts right in the grounds of Bentley Country Park.

I’ll do a full post about our stay in the next couple of weeks. It was extremely charming, extremely full of ‘my lucky kids have amazing lives’ moments. And it was EXTREMELY knackering.

Meantime, after an intentionally quiet week on the blog, I thought I’d share these pictures.

My older son’s best friend and her family – complete with new two-week-old addition – came to visit for lunch. They stayed all day. I caught the children wandering off holding hands, as they often tend to do.

They headed up the side of a cornfield that lies ahead of the huts. Barefoot. Totally absorbed in their own world. Free to adventure. See what I mean about those moments?

It struck me that this picture is like a Little Lewes Redux! If you follow the Little Lewes mini blog on Facebook, or my Twitter ramblings, you’ll recognise the backs of these two’s heads from the header picture on both. A similar snap of them I took in a verdant field at Groombridge Place.

And here’s a taster image of the huts. Extremely gorgeous!
