In the UK we are lucky enough to have around 3.19 million hectares of woodland – that is a lot of woodland! With all of the doom and gloom around this year, one of the best tonics is a woodland walk. With the autumnal chill in the air, it is a time to wrap up warm and treat yourself to some new winter clothing from somewhere like XV Kings menswear https://www.ejmenswear.com/men/xv-kings and head out into the woods to admire the beautiful autumnal trees on display…
Grizedale Forest – Set in one of the most beautiful areas of the UK, the Lake District, close to the shores of Lake Windermere, this is a great place to enjoy the best of the British Woodlands. It has everything from beautiful views to the last remaining wild herd of Red Deer in the country – if you are lucky you may catch a glimpse of one.
Epping Forest – Only a short journey from London, this fantastic forest has a long and varied history. A former royal hunting forest, it was bombed during the second world war and some of the picturesque pools that you see in the forest are the results of the craters from the bombs!
Kielder Forest – For watching the night sky this is the place to be as it is said to be the darkest place in the UK -perfect for a spot of star gazing. During the day it s a beautiful place to be with views over Kielder water and the chance to see an Osprey.
