The Fox Goes Free


I Am Wearing
Top, Trousers and Sunglasses – all H&M


With the rain due to hit us hard (today being a perfect example), Marcus and I decided to make the most of the last of the sunshine and go on a walk in Charlton a couple of days ago. No, I’d never heard of it either. It’s a quaint little village surrounded by incredible views of the Sussex countryside. 



We stopped off at the local pub, The Fox Goes Free, to fuel our bodies before we went trekking off into the fields. The pub is exactly what you would expect from a quiet Sussex village: low beams in rooms with exposed brickwork walls giving it the traditional old fashioned character and charm.



There is a typical ‘pub food’ menu but the food exceeded our expectations. Everything is presented beautifully and tasted delicious! I ordered the tomato and onion tart with grilled halloumi (I seem to be turning veggie at the moment!) and Marcus tucked into a lasagne with the most perfect chips – soft and fluffy on the inside but crisp on the outside.


If you are ever passing through the area I would recommend you popping into this gem of a pub, it’s well worth a visit. 


Kitted out in my impressive walking boots, which haven’t seen the light of day in over 4 years since we went to Ireland, we started our walk across a steep field, which quite honestly would have been enough walking for me!


The views were incredible, so I stopped my moaning after that. 




After stopping for a break half way through the walk, we noticed huge trees around us with thick low branches. Our inner child broke free and we both decided to see who could climb the highest. I didn’t get very far and was quite happy to sit comfortably on one of the branches for a while!
