3 Autumn Walks with the Outdoor Guide
1. A Woodland and Wine Tasting Walk in the Weald of Kent
This walk in the Garden of England shows off some of the best places to eat and drink in the area, including the beautiful eco-vineyard Yotes Court. There are also a plethora of pubs on route if you don’t fancy wine, and of course some glorious views over the Kentish countryside.
During the Autumn, the predominately deciduous Hurst Wood will be a blaze with autumn colours – a perfect weekend walk. When preparing for this walk make sure to pack comfy shoes and waterproofs as the weather can be chilly and the ground muddy.
2. A Den Making Extravaganza in Norfolk
Blickling Hall, a grand stately home in the middle of Norfolk, has a fascinating history. That history does not compare, however, to the excitement to be found in the grounds. In the woodland surrounding the man-made lake are a plethora of dens and hollow downed trees to explore. You and your little one could spend hours ducking inside half built structures, adding new logs, or perhaps even starting a new den all on your own.
When your imagination and energy is spent, you can retire to the café where there are delicious hot and cold snacks and drinks on offer. It really does make for an excellent day out.
3. Woodland, Moor and Beck in the North York Moors
This varied countryside ramble has it all, peaceful woodland, breath-taking moorland, and fast flowing becks. It runs between the popular North York Moor villages of Grosmont and Goathland, making the most of the railway line which runs between the two. You’ll also meander through the cute village of Beck Hole, where there’s a welcoming pub and quaint sweetshop to refresh you during your journey. It’s a popular walking route as most of it runs downhill, with the option to hike it as a ‘there-and-back’ or take the train to your car once you’re done.
