During the winter months many people, due to less time spent outdoors and lower levels of daylight, can feel more depressed and lethargic than usual. Although it is tempting to stay snuggled up on the sofa in the winter, it is much better to get out and about.
Not only is it a great excuse to treat yourself to some snug new winter jumpers like this men’s Ralph Lauren knitwear, but it is also a great way to boost your health – both for your mind and your body. In the UK we are very fortunate to have lots of glorious countrysides to explore, and what is better in the winter than a walk through the woodlands?
Here are some of the best UK woodland walks that you can enjoy in the autumn and winter months…
Hatfield Forest in Essex – One of the oldest of Britain’s medieval hunting forests, this is home to an abundance of wildlife. With trees that have lived for over 1000 years, this is a truly beautiful walk in the autumn when the trees full of colorful regalia are on display.
The Forest of Dean Gloucestershire – This is also an ancient part of the country and an area of outstanding natural beauty. Kids will love the sculpture trail, as you walk through the glorious trees spotting sculptures that pay tribute to the local area.
Hackfall Wood in Yorkshire – This woodland has inspired artists from Turner to poets like Wordsworth himself – it is easy to see why when you walk amongst the beautiful trees, streams, and even a waterfall.
